3 Steps to Help Retire Your AC This Year

Monday, September 21st, 2020

As temperatures drop, you’ll need a heating solution for your home’s HVAC in Westlake, OH that can get the job done. While our next few blog posts will be talking about heating needs, we’re still going to mention a last few bits of advice about air conditioners before we say goodbye to them.

The truth is that most homeowners don’t retire their air conditioners the right way.

The Benefits of Professional Heat Pump Installation

Monday, June 15th, 2020

Heat pumps are exceptional pieces of technology, but if you think you can install your heat pump on your own then you’re gravely mistaken. These units are complex and use lines of refrigerant and other components that need to be sized accordingly and installed with the steady hand of a professional.

Professional heat pump installation isn’t just for peace of mind, it can also help you avoid expensive repairs down the road. In some bad cases, a poor amateur heat pump installation could lead to the need for a replacement in only a couple of years.

Noises Your Boiler Should NOT Be Making

Monday, October 7th, 2019

One lesson you learn very early on in the HVAC industry is that every heating or cooling system has its own noises it makes. This exists on a spectrum, from normal noises of the heating or cooling process, to the noises that spell disaster to every homeowner who hears them.

There’s a misconception that boilers don’t make as much noise as other heating systems like furnaces or heat pumps, but that’s just not true. Sure they might run quieter since they’re not a forced-air system, but they still make noises when they’re having issues and you should still be on the lookout for those issues. Whether it’s banging, shrieking, or grinding, your boiler could be warning you that you need some work on your HVAC in Avon, OH. These problems can be costing you money on your heating bill that could only get worse the longer you ignore them!
