boiler-pressure-sensorThe furnace rules the roost when it comes to sheer numbers: there are more furnaces heating homes in the US than any other type of comfort system. But numbers alone don’t mean a furnace is the best pick for every house. Boilers have been around for hundreds of years, and they aren’t going to vanish any time soon—not unless someone discovers something as convenient and inexpensive as hot water for transferring warmth!

If you are currently thinking about installing a heating system for a new home that doesn’t have a ventilation system in place yet, we recommend you place a boiler high on your home comfort shopping list. Boilers offer some terrific benefits when it comes to winter comfort, and a boiler may turn out to be perfect for your new household.

Is a Packaged HVAC Unit Good for a New Air Conditioner?

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

question-markThe type of air conditioning system that you’re probably the most familiar with is what’s known as a split system. There’s an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The outdoor condenser holds the compressor and exhaust fan, and it connects through power and refrigerant lines to an indoor unit that holds the evaporator coils and the air handler which sends the cooled air into the ventilation system.

This isn’t the only type of configuration for an air conditioner, however. The packaged unit is the kind used for most businesses. Essentially, all the components are housed in one cabinet that is placed outside. But since most homes use split systems, does that mean a packaged unit isn’t effective for a home AC?

Not at all! For some homes, packaged HVAC units may be a great alternative to split systems with excellent benefits.

What Can Go Wrong with a Clogged HVAC Filter

Monday, September 4th, 2017

air-fliter-cuWe make an effort to remind our customers to change the air filter for their HVAC system on a regular basis throughout the year. It’s especially important during the summer, when the AC blower fan does a large amount of labor to circulate cool air around a house. The blower fan draws air through the return ducts, and the dust, lint, hair, and other debris in this air is trapped in the filter to prevent it from causing damage to the interior of the HVAC system. It only takes a few months, sometimes only one, to lead to a fully clogged filter that must be changed for a clean one.
