Does Your Heater Need a Tune-Up?

March 6, 2015

Heating System Tune-Up     Signs Your Heating Unit Needs A Tune-Up A heating system is crucial for anyone that lives in a region, where the weather can get extremely cold. During the winter months, it’s not unusual for the weather to get below zero in certain areas, causing the need for a heating unit. Even in areas where it’s sunny most of the year, you may still need a heating unit, for the cold weather. A heating unit needs to be tuned up, in order to maintain it throughout the years. If you have a heating unit that you use all the time, then it will need a tune-up, more than heating units that are used rarely. Look for signs that your system needs a tune-up, such as pungent smells. If you’re getting a smell from the unit, then a professional needs to take a look at it. Loud noises are also something you may hear in the unit, but it’s not normal. If you hear loud noises coming from your unit, then something is wrong with it, and it needs some maintenance. Although dust may normally be in a home, a lot of dust can mean that there...

Cold? You Could Really Use a Heat Pump

February 13, 2015

The Role Of The Heat Pump In Heating Ventilation And Air Conditioner Systems   In heating ventilation and air conditioner systems (HVAC), the heat pump serves an important role. In homes with heating and cooling systems, the heat pump flows air from warmer places to colder places. It releases heat into living spaces from the outside environment. How Does a Heat Pump Work? A heat pump draws heat from the cooler external air or from the ground and is three or four times more efficient in energy use than electrical resistance heaters. It moves heat instead of generating it, giving you more energy efficiency and savings. Heat pumps are great for moderate climates and are an excellent supplement to furnaces and other heating systems in cooler climates. Heat pumps can both heat and cool your home. In the winter the heat pump pulls heat out of the air or ground to heat your home and in the summer, they can be reversed to cool your home or building, and works about the same as an air conditioner. One advantage to using a heat pump is that heating, cooling and ventilation is all done with one system. Heat pumps are fuel efficient...

If It’s an Emergency, Call the Plumbers Today!

January 30, 2015

Emergency Plumbing 101 Whether one is considering home or commercial establishments, it is important to have an HVAC emergency plan in place when a major breakdown occurs in heating, ventilation, or air-conditioning. Emergency HVAC Services Services in times of emergency will work best if there is a preparedness plan in place. In cases of power outages, home or commercial generators can be installed to serve as backup during those occasions. Detailed planning for storage of such system, sizing so as to match the utility load required, and placement need to be ascertained. If the HVAC system is reaching the end of its useful life, choice between non-emergent service or emergent service is solely up to the customer in many instances. Furthermore, establishing a customer relationship with an HVAC contractor in non-emergent times may reap customer benefit in small savings during emergent times. Prevention Maintenance a Must Several steps can be taken both commercially and residentially to ensure proper working order of HVAC systems. Neglecting maintenance in a heating system can result in up to 25 percent loss in efficiency. Heat pumps benefit from annual maintenance done annually by professionals. Checking and replacing belts or filters if necessary, lubricating moving parts...

Get the Purified Air You Deserve

January 23, 2015

How Does an Air Purifier Work?   Many people don’t realize that the air inside their homes has much more dirt and pollutants than the air outside because houses can be a source for many different contaminants. Molds, mildew, dust mites, pets and more produce particles that, when combined with the generally closed environment of a home, make for what can be a toxic atmosphere. Types of Air Purifiers Several different methods exist for cleaning the atmosphere of contaminants. The most common types of air purifiers include regular filter units that are often simply called air cleaners, HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) cleaners, ionizing purifiers, ozone generators and adsorbents. Each removes impurities from the air in a different manner. The United States Environmental Protection Agency has stated that air purifiers may help control the levels of airborne particles, but that there are limitations as to what each type may be able to do. Most air cleaners are unable to remove unwanted gases, while heavier particles often fall to the ground when indoors, thus keeping them outside of the purifier’s reach. Air purifiers can be used, however, to improve certain aspects of indoor air. How Air Purifiers Work Filter models, usually...

Read This Before Your Next Furnace Purchase

January 16, 2015

What is the Importance of a Properly Sized Furnace?   When it comes to installing a heating system in a home, bigger is not always better and smaller will not save on energy costs. It is essential to choose a furnace system that is proportionately sized to the home. More power will not keep your home warmer. It will have the opposite effect. Let’s discuss why. Oversize Systems A furnace system that is oversized will tend to have short cycles, as the furnace will release heat for a much larger area. The small area will heat up and cool off quicker and trigger the furnace on more often. This will result in quick temperature fluctuations and increase the amount of energy used. The constant on and off will cause the heat exchanger to work overtime and result in furnace failure at the worst possible time. A furnace system that is sized appropriately will stay on for longer periods of time and warm the home gradually rather than quickly. The temperature is then maintained over a longer time span without the furnace turning on and off in quick succession. Undersize Systems A furnace system that is not large enough to properly...
