A/C Essentials: 3 Facts For Air Conditioned Homes

July 31, 2015

3 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Your Air Conditioning Unit It’s likely that you don’t think about your air conditioning unit much until it stops working. But once temperatures inside your home start to match or exceed temperatures outside your home while your A/C wheezes, you might not have any recourse besides calling in the professionals. With a little knowledge and forethought, however, you can help maintain your unit yourself to ensure it keeps running through those hot summer nights. Here are three things you probably didn’t know about your air conditioning unit. IT WORKS WELL WITHOUT OTHERS You can increase your air conditioner’s efficiency by lowering your carbon footprint. Turning off the lights and shutting off electrical equipment that’s not being used boosts your unit’s oomph, as does waiting until cooler times of day to do laundry or run the dishwasher. But do use your home’s built-in exhaust fans: They help carry away heat and humidity, giving your A/C unit a little less to do. DON’T CLOSE YOURSELF OFF A common myth about air conditioning units is that closing or even sealing off rooms in your home will reduce your bill. Shutting doors and vents, though, backfires because...

The History Behind Air Conditioning

June 12, 2015

History of the HVAC Unit Early Stages of Heating and Cooling Romans were the first civilization to think about controlling the temperature of a space. With their complex aqueduct systems they were able to circulate cool water throughout the walls of different buildings. They were even known to transport large amounts of ice and snow using donkeys to keep villas cool in the summer. Luxuries such as these were lost during the Dark Ages, where basic survival became a necessity over comfort, and didn’t return until centuries later during the 1800’s. Heating and Cooling Innovations In the 1800’s American engineers began to focus their energy on solving the heating a cooling problem that had plagued man since the beginning. Hand power rotary fans had been invented centuries prior and did a decent job at keeping a room cool, but not enough to stop the ambitions of engineers. In 1881, a President James Garfield was kept cool by having air blown at him through cotton sheets doused in ice water. This method was able to produce cold air, but it was not cost effective. The real innovations began when electricity was harnessed. Alternative current motors, created by Nikola Tesla, were able...

How Dirty is Your Duct?

June 10, 2015

5 Signs Your Air Ducts Need Cleaning Clean air is essential. Recently, indoor air quality has become an important concern for homeowners. Many people live with the assumption that it’s normal for their HVAC ducts to harbor dust, pollen and debris. However, this is not true. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning under certain circumstances. Here are the five most frequent signs that it’s time to have your ducts cleaned. 1. Airborne Debris The most common indication for duct cleaning is dust and debris that’s blocking airflow or is released from your HVAC vents. Forced air systems pull dust in on the return side and force it out of vents on the supply side. A thorough duct cleaning can remove debris from both parts of the system. 2. Strange Odors If you notice unusual, musty or offensive odors when you enter your home or when your air conditioner turns on, it’s time to have your ducts cleaned. Foul odors can be caused by a variety of contaminants as well as underlying moisture problems. 3. Visible Mold Growth Mold is one of the most serious air quality problems. In addition to damaging your home, it can cause a variety of...

How to Avoid a Sinus Infection This Spring

May 29, 2015

How Often Should You Change Your HVAC Filter? Anyone who has ever had their furnace die in the middle of winter — or their AC unit stop working in the midst of a summer heatwave — knows the value of a well-functioning HVAC system. It’s vital to maintain these systems to make sure they keep on working for a long time to come. One critical component of this is HVAC air filters. Air filters need to be checked and changed out on a regular basis, but how often they should be changed depends on your unique circumstances. Do you have pets? Pets in the home, especially those that shed, can put an increased strain on your HVAC system and filter. Fur and dander can be pulled into the air conditioner or furnace and build up into a layer that decreases the efficiency of your HVAC system. This can get worse during weather extremes when your air conditioner or furnace is working overtime. If you have pets that shed, you should check your filter about once a month and have it changed out if needed. Do you have allergies? A fresh air filter can go a long way toward increasing the...
