Could Your HVAC Systems Be Hurting Your Indoor Air Quality?

Monday, March 8th, 2021

vent-low-on-wallIf we were to ask you the relation between your HVAC systems and your home’s indoor air quality, what would you say?

If you’re like many homeowners, you would say that your indoor air quality is determined by the temperature of your home, which of course is controlled by your HVAC systems. This isn’t wrong, but it’s not completely right either. Temperature is only part of good indoor air quality.

Another relation between IAQ and HVAC systems that people make is that their HVAC systems’ air filter protects their indoor air quality. This is also not quite true. It certainly helps with indoor air quality, but this air filter is in place to protect the HVAC systems themselves.

So, what is the real relation between your HVAC systems and your indoor air quality? Read on to find out!

furnace-jetsYour time has come—you need a new heating system. But, you’re a little uncertain about what to go with. When you’re considering a furnace replacement, there are many factors to think about. Perhaps the most important is how efficient a furnace you want. After all, don’t you want to be comfortable at an affordable price?

But how do you know what’s the most efficient? And does it make a difference whether you get an electric or a gas furnace when it comes to your monthly utility bills?

We’ll dive into this below. You may be surprised to find that the answers to these questions aren’t as simple as you may think.

Unique Ductless Needs to Be Aware Of

Monday, December 14th, 2020

technician-repairing-ductless-air-handlerAre you considering a new HVAC system for your heating or cooling needs this season? Or maybe even both? You may think you need to buy a separate air conditioner and heater, but that’s not the case! You can do well with a ductless system.

Rather than operating through a network of ducts like a central AC or furnace does, a ductless system uses one small outdoor unit that connects to up to 4 indoor air handlers via conduits. Each of these conduits contains a powerline, refrigerant line, and condensate line. These systems are highly efficient and effective for both heating and cooling.

They save space too, since each air handler can be wall-mounted up and out of the way. Each air handler can also be individually controlled, so everyone in your home can set theirs to their own heating and cooling preferences.

As great as these systems are, it’s important to be aware that if they’re not properly installed, you could run into some unique problems. We have outlined these problems below.

What Does a Bad Capacitor Do to Your AC?

Monday, June 29th, 2020

outdoor-ac-unit-with-clipboard-on-topHere’s the thing—air conditioners are complex! They’re electronic devices involving wires, switches, capacitors, and many other components. When something goes amiss, there is often an electrical reason behind it. This isn’t always the case, of course, as air conditioners are susceptible to natural wear and tear. But a good rule of thumb if your well-maintained AC is showing troubling symptoms is to call a pro to check out the electrical connections.

We recommend calling pros versus trying to resolve the problem on your own for safety reasons—only a licensed and experienced professional should ever deal with all the wiring that’s involved.

We can tell you though, that if it is an electrical problem, it could very well have something to do with a failing or broken down capacitor. Read on to learn more!
