Signs Your Ductwork Needs Repair

After your heating and cooling unit heats or cools air, it blows that air through ductwork into your home where it exits through vents. Ducts are flexible, thin metal tubes, which can rip or break due to age, pests, or the natural contraction and expansion they undergo as hot and cold air travels through them. When there is a hole, rip or tear in the ductwork, heated or cooled air can escape, rather than properly traveling through to your vents. This is why it is so important to have them repaired if needed. Here are two of the most common signs that your ductwork may have a rip or tear and need to be repaired or replaced.

Is Your Heating System Not Working? It May Be Your Heat Pump

A heat pump is part of a mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system that we install for both heating and cooling purposes. The pump circulates warm air from one location to another. Which direction the pump moves the air depends on the temperature outside (or the temperature needed inside the building). When it’s cold outside the pump takes the air and converts it to warm air before pushing inside the house. When it’s warm outside, the pump removes the warm air so that the AC unit can produce cold. It is the most vital component in your heating and cooling system. So, as you might guess, when the heat pump goes bad, it cripples the rest of the equipment.

What You Should Know Before Buying a Boiler

Boilers are a standard heating system in both residential and commercial properties. Although different types of boilers offer a wide range of features, they mostly perform the same function. Boilers heat water, and then distribute it through a building via a piping network that channels through the walls, ceiling, or floors. Most boilers are powered by natural gas, oil, propane, or diesel fuel.
