How to Find the Right Air Filtration for Your Home

March 11th, 2019

air-filterIf 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.

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.

Don’t Be Alarmed by These Heat Pump Problems

January 28th, 2019

heat-pump-repairIs 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.

Defrost Cycle

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.
