Every homeowner in America wants nothing more than to have a reliable A/C unit to cool their living space effectively. When the seasons change from winter to spring, then spring to summer, the need for an efficient ac unit is essential. The bright sunny days of spring can be inspiring after a long cold winter spent locked inside, but just because air conditioners may not be on our minds during the winter doesn’t mean we should just ignore our ac unit altogether. It is essential to your family’s comfort not to forget one of the most important factors of having a cathartic and rejuvenating spring, getting your a/c unit serviced!

Getting Your AC Ready for Spring 6If you wait too long to have your air conditioner serviced you will have to deal with less than satisfactory cooling throughout the hottest months. A stuffy house that is not even enjoyable to be in and a higher electric bill due to lack of efficiency will be the theme of your summer if you don’t act quickly. Summer is supposed to be a time of fun and relaxation, this will be extra difficult for you and your family if you are spending your vacation budget on getting your air conditioner fixed in the middle of summer.

The benefits of getting your unit serviced early far outweigh the risk of letting your ac go unattended for years on end. Issues you can experience are but are not limited to, strange sounds coming from the unit, strange smells coming from your air ducts, not cooling your space effectively, and weak to no airflow. Some of these issues can negatively affect your comfort level and are simple to fix, other issues can actually cause health problems if not attended to in a timely manner.

If you stumbled across this blog and at any time were wondering if having your ac unit serviced is necessary, trust us, it is necessary. Just think of how much more enjoyable your spring and summer will be with an air conditioner you can simply turn on and let it do its job with complete comfort and peace of mind. Fortunate for you, your air conditioner, and your family, At A-1, your peace of mind is the most important thing.

“I'll start by saying I was quite impressed by despite not being an emergency, how fast they got someone here to repair our boiler. He got it working, warned me of other parts that required replacements, told me why, and what we could do to extend their life. Fine service and was far less than I expected to pay. Would highly, highly recommend”

Joe Kraynak

“Bob and the guys did an amazing job at our camp. They did everything right and didn't cut corners. I got a few other estimates and couldn't believe some of the jerry-rigging the other companies proposed.”

With the cold weather, snow, and ice here for the season, making sure the house stays warm is top on the list of winter tasks. There are several ways you can heat up the house. The most common is using the furnace or electric heat that’s pushed out through various vents throughout the house. It’s very effective, but sometimes not the best. The systems can be loud and depending on where the vents are located the floors will always be cold because of how heat rises. In this blog, we wanted to highlight some of the benefits of having radiant heat installed in a specific room or throughout the house.

What are some of the benefits of radiant heat?

  • Quiet: Some heating systems can be rather noisy when being used. Forced air is a huge culprit for this but it’s one of the most effective systems out there. Radiant heating is completely silent when it kicks on. The only time you really notice it is when you feel the floor warming up again.
  • Hypoallergenic: One huge drawback to forced air is the fact that if your family suffers from allergies, especially from dust, it can get blown throughout the house. There are filters that control it but if they fill up they don’t work as well. Radiant heat doesn’t push any sort of air out so allergy sufferers can feel more at ease in the comfort of their own home.
  • Energy Efficient: Over the years HVAC systems have gotten energy-efficient but they’re still not as energy-efficient at radiant heat. The forced air still has a chance of leaving the home instead of warming it up. Because radiant heat stays in the floor it’s able to warm up the room.

  • Even Heat: At times, the position of the vents makes it difficult to warm up the entire room. Radiant heat is evenly distributed throughout the floor so you’ll have an even source of heat no matter where you walk.
COVID-19 & Your Ventilation System https://a1comfortheatingandcoolinginc.com/covid-19-your-ventilation-system Mon, 09 Nov 2020 14:00:00 +0000 https://a1comfortheatingandcoolinginc.com/?p=1110

For the past few months, it’s been common practice to be extra diligent when you clean and disinfect every surface throughout the day; especially if you’re going out in public. We’ve heard all of the tips and tricks from how often to wash and sanitize your hands, to keeping electronics clean, to the multiple surfaces of your home. One thing that seems to be glossed over is how your HVAC system is handling the virus with the ventilation and filtration system installed.

How can your HVAC system keep your home safe?

The HVAC system regulates the air quality in the entire house. Depending on the time of year, it can heat the house or cool it down by activating the air conditioning. It also has a built-in air filter that catches airborne contaminants such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and more. This filter is also strong enough to catch bacteria and viruses that cause not only the common cold but COVID-19 as well! Having a clean air filter in your HVAC system could be a huge factor in keeping your family safe during this uncertain time.

Air Filter

What can you do to keep your HVAC system up to date?

  • Get your system checked out as soon as possible. It’s getting colder so you’ll want to make sure it’s ready for the winter, anyway.
  • Update the filter to the highest-rated version your current system can handle. You might need to consult the manual or even give us a call at A1 Comfort Heating & Cooling Inc. to discuss it. We’ll be able to hunt down the information for you.
  • Usually, HVAC systems filter the air when the fan runs. If you can, have the fan run continuously or longer than you usually would. The fan doesn’t affect the heating or cooling, so you don’t have to worry about the house becoming uncomfortable.
  • If you can, include an air purifier as well to give yourself even more of an opportunity to reduce airborne contaminants in the air.
  • Continue to clean and sanitize your home according to the CDC guidelines to stay protected.

*Please note: Using your HVAC filter is an additional aid to help keep your family safe. You still need to take the proper precautions of cleaning and sanitizing your home.

Preparing for winter means getting your home, furnace, vents, and more ready as well. With the cold weather upon us, it’s time to consider the regular maintenance you need to do to your HVAC system. In fact, right now is the ideal time for any sort of preparation for the winter weather whether it be your heating systems or your home in general. Here are a few critical elements you should check and maintain before the colder weather really hits the area!

  • Insulation: No matter what season it is, the insulation plays a huge role in keeping your house comfortable. As the air is getting colder, you’ll be able to feel drafts where the insulation is insufficient. Even small drafts can cause your heating or AC to work harder than it needs to. Usually, you can have issues in the attic, roof, exterior walls, entry doors, windows, or a combination of these.

  • Furnace Maintenance: Every year, your furnace needs to be checked. Since it’s been sitting for the entire summer, something might have happened without your knowledge; it might run poorly this season or not run at all. Things like the chimney need to be cleaned, flues need to be inspected for leaks, and more. You don’t want your furnace going out when it gets super cold because of a maintenance issue.

  • Replace Air Filters: Air filters help keep the air quality in the house clean. On average, it needs to be replaced every one to three months, depending on how dusty the house gets. A dirty air filter not only affects the quality of the air in the home, but it can also cause your HVAC unit to stop working.

  • Unblock the Vents: While you’re replacing the air filter, make sure the vents are clear. This allows the air to blow freely through the unit and helps the thermostat get an accurate reading on the house.

  • Replace A Unit: If your system is old or seems to be on its last leg, the best thing to do is replace it. Not only will you be able to get a more energy-efficient model, but your energy bill will be significantly less than with your old unit. You’ll also notice that your home will feel more comfortable this winter.

  • Scheduled an Inspection: While there are some maintenance things you might be able to do on your own, it may not be enough. When you schedule routine maintenance, our team at A1 Comfort Heating and Cooling will give the unit a thorough check making sure it’s running at peak performance. To each one of our clients, we offer Service Warranty with routine maintenance. With our furnace inspections, we have a 15-point inspection carefully checking over every piece it has.
