Skip the Portable Humidifiers

It’s time for an upgrade.

When you heat your home in the winter, do you move a few space heaters throughout the house on a rotating schedule? When you cool your home, are you lugging window unit air conditioners up and down stairs throughout the house each year? No, of course not. While these portable comfort systems have their uses in, say, small apartments or dorm rooms, a whole-house HVAC system is obviously the better option.

So, why are you filling up portable humidifiers with water and only humidifying certain areas of your home? Especially when our team is here to outfit your home with a whole-house humidifier in Charlottesville? With a whole-house humidifier, you are going to enjoy many benefits that your portable humidifier units simply cannot match. Just remember that these systems, like any other whole-house system, need to be professionally installed and serviced. It’s not a job that you can handle on your own. Reach out to our staff to take advantage of a whole-house humidifier in your home.

Don’t Force an Unprepared Heater Back Into Action

Monday, October 8th, 2018

furnace-technicianWhew, you may be thinking, that chill is getting stronger—the heater is going to be back in regular rotation before long.  Good thing it was in such good shape at the end of last heating season. Now it will be ready to jump right back into it this, right?

Not. So. Fast.

If you want to heat your home effectively and reliably this winter—and why wouldn’t this be the case—then it is very important that you schedule professional heating maintenance in Charlottesville, VA, before putting the system back into use.  No,  it does not matter if the system was fine when you last used it. After all, maintenance and repairs are two very different things.

Work with a Professional HVAC Company

Monday, August 13th, 2018

AC-manifoldIf we were really just using this blog to drum up business for ourselves, then we would actually be telling you to go ahead and service your air conditioner on your own if you are the DIY type. Of course, that is not our core purpose, here. We want to share helpful information that will allow our audience to live in the consistent comfort that they deserve. That is why we are instead going to stress, again, that you really need to work with a professional HVAC company in Charlottesville, VA.

We understand that you may be mechanically inclined. You may have a basement or shed full of quality tools that you are more than happy to break out at a moment’s notice. Unless you are a trained HVAC professional, though, those tools should not be applied to your HVAC system! It is always in your best interest to reach instead for the phone, dial our number, and get the quality HVAC services that your system demands.

What’s Wrong with My Heat Pump?

Monday, July 16th, 2018

condenserHeat pumps are a great option for homeowners interested in enjoying year-round comfort with great energy efficiency.  They operate just like central air conditioners in the summer, meaning that they evaporate refrigerant in order to remove heat from the air in your home during the summer season. In the winter, this process is reversed. Refrigerant evaporates in the outdoor unit, absorbing heat before being compressed to boost its thermal energy, which is then used to heat the interior living space.

Your heat pump is going to put in a lot of working hours over the course of the year. While routine maintenance can address much of the wear and tear that it will incur, it cannot make your heat pump 100% reliable. Nothing will. Eventually, you will find yourself in need of heat pump repair in Charlottesville, VA. If and when you do, be sure to dial our number in order to guarantee that your system is put back on the right track, the right way, the first time.
