In this showdown, we have two types of heating systems: the geothermal system and the radiant heating system.
Both of these systems are installed below your feet and provide unmatched heating power. However, the differences between the two will have you choosing sides. Either way, they’re both great systems that deserve a chance and can be installed by a qualified HVAC company in Fairview Park, OH.
Here are all the details:

While doing your online research, you might come across the fact that there are two approaches to cleaning the air in your home:
Air filtration and air purification.
While the methods are similar, and some of the products even have overlapping functions, they’re not quite the same. However, if you’re working with an HVAC expert in Avon, OH from the very start, you won’t need to worry too much about it. Your technician will be able to test the quality of your air and install the right systems for you.
However, we’re still happy to help explain the differences between them with a couple of examples.

Your furnace has one job: to blow out hot air. So, if it’s not even doing that properly, then you have an issue on your hands.
Okay, maybe you didn’t need an HVAC technician to tell you that a broken furnace is a problem. We’ll take it a step further, then, by giving you some ideas on why it may not be working.
Of course, diagnosing a furnace isn’t something we can accurately do through a blog post. If at any point during your inspection you find yourself in over your head or are uncertain about what you’re doing, don’t hesitate to call us up for an expert opinion. We can walk you through some basic troubleshooting issues or offer to come over if necessary.
With that being said, airflow issues in furnaces might be caused by:

If you go online and start reading about indoor air quality, you’ll find countless articles and blogs about how your indoor air is swarming with dust, dirt, viruses, high and low humidity, particles… the list goes on. It’s enough to make you want to rush out and go buy an air filter immediately.
But there’s a problem with that. It’s the same as reading about all of your symptoms online and being convinced that you now have some sort of incurable illness. However, you wouldn’t want to go out and buy medicine for an illness that a doctor hasn’t diagnosed you with.
Likewise, we don’t think you should go spend money on air filtration systems until your home has been properly diagnosed by a qualified HVAC contractor. Here’s what you should do instead:

One question we want to answer is whether there’s such a thing as too much maintenance. The answer is certainly “yes!”
To keep your heater or air conditioner in good shape, you only need to have it checked once a year. So, if your heater and AC are two separate systems (i.e. not a heat pump), then you’ll actually be scheduling maintenance two times in the year.
On this note, we want to talk specifically about why gas furnace maintenance is not the maintenance you want to skip. In addition to some operational issues, neglected maintenance can also bring about safety hazards.

We’ll explain how your indoor air quality in Avon, OH can be improved to help you fight off allergies and colds.

Is your heat pump failing to operate the way you expect? Well, don’t reach for the phone just yet. First, check to see if any of these factors are responsible.
If your heat pump is blowing cold air in the middle of winter—and you’ve made sure it’s not accidentally in cooling mode—go ahead and inspect the outdoor unit. If you find that it’s covered in ice, don’t be alarmed. Your heat pump is most likely using a defrost cycle to get rid of the ice. During that time, it may blow cold air.

Deciding whether to stick with your current furnace or replace it with a new one is always a complicated decision, but it’s one you have to make if you want to keep your expenses low. A worn-out furnace isn’t just less efficient—it’s likely outdated in terms of efficiency.
So on one hand, you don’t want to fall victim to “shiny object syndrome” and get a new furnace too early just because it sounds really awesome. But on the other hand, a closer look at your furnace’s behavior might show you’re completely justified in replacing it if…
