Can Your AC Dehumidify Your Home?

May 16th, 2022

This is a complicated question, and one we’re excited to answer today. While yes, an air conditioner can remove the moisture in the atmosphere of your home, that’s not its primary job.

Is it good for your air conditioner to work so hard at removing moisture from your home? This is where we would say no. We want you to have the best air conditioning in Berea, OH, which means delineating some of the work to another system if possible. By running your air conditioner with a dehumidifier, you could have better temperature and comfort control in your home, while also alleviating the burden on your AC!

How Backflow and Leaks Contaminate Your Water

March 7th, 2022

Plumbing systems are pressurized and flow in one direction for a very good reason. When water comes into your house from its source and doesn’t come in contact with anything else, then it’s considered “clean” or at least “fresh.” This is an important metric to use, because the moment your water starts interacting with things like infiltrating tree roots, other water pipes, or even it’s own backflow, then you’re dealing with a serious health and safety concern.

When it comes to sink plumbing in North Ridgeville, OH, water should only flow in one direction. It should come out of the faucet and down the drain. If you suspect there’s a leak in your plumbing system somewhere, or you think that there’s a problem with backflow, then we recommend calling our team as soon as possible. We can help install a backflow preventer and even provide video pipe inspection to monitor the interior of your plumbing system.

How Does an Electric Furnace Work?

February 21st, 2022

When we talk about furnaces, we’re either talking about gas furnaces or electric furnaces. We don’t really service oil furnaces anymore because they’re just not as effective or efficient as current models, and oil prices fluctuate too much for us to give you a good deal.

Gas furnaces are often the first choice for homeowners. Natural gas is plentiful, clean-burning, and it does a good job at keeping a home warm throughout our cold winters. But this often leads to electric furnaces in Avon Lake, OH getting a bad rap, which they don’t deserve! Electric furnaces are perfect choices for many homeowners in our area.

Today, we’re going to talk about why an electric furnace might be a good choice. From its lower initial purchase price to its incredibly efficient design, electric furnaces work wonders for homes that need to fight cold temperatures but are a little more off the grid than homes with access to natural gas.
