We get it. Replacing a furnace or heat pump is not what anyone wants to do during the holiday season. You hope that your heating system will last for years longer than other systems do. Of course, every system stops working at some point, and it’s better to be prepared. Continue Reading
Our heating technicians are trained to expertly diagnose a furnace so that they can have the problem taken care of ASAP. But when a furnace has broken down completely, those repairs can take a lot longer. We strongly recommend calling for technicians the moment a problem occurs, but how do you know if the issue is serious enough? Continue Reading
We tell people a lot how important it is that they change the filter in their air conditioning and heating systems once a month. A dirty filter may stop air from coming into your home. It does a lot of damage to the heater or air conditioner because it’s unable to do its job (taking in air and recirculating it). This causes it to become overworked and may potentially lead to a lot of repairs.
Changing the filter is a simple act that can save you a lot of trouble—as far as the health and well-being of your heating and cooling equipment is concerned. But does it provide enough filtration for your health and well-being? Continue Reading
It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays. This year, we’re encouraging our customers, friends, and loved ones not to forget those less fortunate this holiday season.
We want to tell you about three awesome charities we’ll be donating to this holiday season. Do your research, and find a couple of awesome causes you want to donate to this year.

When you don’t have any ducts in your home, you might think your options for home comfort are fairly limited. In this case, many people turn to window air conditioning units, which seem like a smart option at first, but turn out to be subpar in terms of comfort and efficiency.
We always recommend a different approach. A ductless mini-split can take care of all of your comfort needs, working a lot like a regular home comfort system—minus, of course, the need to add ductwork. Here are three reasons we think you should consider this as your next home upgrade. Continue Reading
When you find out that your furnace isn’t working properly anymore, you might hope to replace the furnace as soon as possible. That means that you may not spend a lot of time thinking about what you’d like with a new installation. But we think this is a mistake.
It’s important to spend some time thinking about what you’d really like with your new furnace, and what your priorities are when it comes to your budget and needs. Fall is the perfect time of year to upgrade your furnace, since you’re not in too much of a rush to get it back in action, and we’ve got some advice on what to think about before you replace your unit.

A heat pump is an innovative system that offers heating and cooling in one. Typically, the heating installation is separate from the air conditioner. You need an air conditioning system—which has an indoor unit and an outdoor unit—along with a furnace that uses gas or electricity to generate heat.
This is perhaps the most common way to do things, but it’s not the only way to do things. In fact, if you have an electric furnace, it can be highly inefficient. Generating heat requires a lot of energy. But a heat pump is different. It only moves heat from place to place. Continue Reading
In the fall, we like to remind our customers to schedule maintenance visits for the home comfort equipment that helps them to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Fall is the perfect time of year to get your home in order as the weather starts to cool off. But it can be easy to forget.
Maintenance services help your air conditioning equipment, your heater, and your wallet in a number of ways. But unless you’re signed up for a maintenance program through a local contractor, you may not remember to schedule this service at the right time of year. Continue Reading
Properly preparing your furnace for colder weather can help you and your home in so many ways. Follow our tips and you might see the following improvements as you rely more and more on heat in the upcoming months:
- Better efficiency
- Lower bills
- Fewer system breakdowns
- A safer home
It’s been a scorcher lately, but the cooler weather is sneaking up on us. We are almost ready to turn on our heaters, but this can cause some problems at the beginning of the colder season.
Furnaces that are not properly tuned-up tend to operate less efficiently than those that are routinely maintained each year before the weather gets cold and the homeowner starts to notice issues. What’s worse is that a furnace that goes uninspected for the winter could hide some potential safety issues. Continue Reading
