We are excited to see the savings in our energy bill and have noticed the house is more evenly heated with the new (HVAC) system. Every chance I get, I will enthusiastically recommend you guys! -Frank and Kathleen K.
Q. What maintenance can or should I do myself on my furnace or air conditioner?
A. Check your air filter on a monthly basis and change it whenever it’s dirty. Flush your condensate drain line when you check your filter, especially in the summer months when algae growth is more prevalent.
Q. How can a heat pump work with a heating and cooling system to be more efficient?
A. In mild weather the HP can provide all the necessary heat down to about 30-35 degrees, below that it would need some kind of backup heat source to provide the additional heat necessary to meet the load of the home down to 0 degrees.
When it comes to a residential heat pump, homeowners can expect one to last 10 to 20 years with proper maintenance. Learning how to maintain your home's heat pump isn't difficult and will save you money now and in the future.
Is a lack of whole-house humidification causing problems for your household? Low humidity can cause uncomfortable health issues like dry sinuses, allergy flare-ups and itchy skin. Dry air also has a damaging effect on your home's structure and furnishings, causing cracked trim and floorboards, furniture that may fall apart as solvents dry, or cracks that emerge in protective coatings or the wood itself.
