Summer Checkups

The Summer heat has your Air Conditioning unit running constantly. In the middle of summer, it is important to make sure that your unit is running well. With the high amount of use this season, it is vital that you replace the filter in your Air conditioner. Replacing the filter allows the airflow in your home to become cleaner. A clean filter will trap more pollen, dust, dander, and other air particulates that can cause respiratory issues, especially in young children. A dirty filter prevents air from flowing as quickly, which can cause you to use more electricity before your home becomes cool. It is also a good idea to vacuum the return vent in your central air system to remove excess dust and debris before it enters the system.
The Summer is an excellent time to have your heater inspected, too. It is important to have a HVAC professional inspect your heating unit before the weather gets cold. Any repairs that your heater might need can be taken care of before the fall if the issue is found now.

The dry air that’s in your house can also cause possible damage to the furniture in your home, such as: hardwood flooring, paint, plaster, and even electrical items. In addition, by having a whole house humidifier in your home leads to lower costs on your heating/cooling bills as you won’t have to fuss around with the thermostat as much; by having the humidifier regulate the air in your home, it causes the temperature in your home to settle to a comfortable setting.

Professional Tune-Ups and Maintenance During the Off-Season

The harsh winter is dying out, which will eventually lead to a harsh summer. In the spring, your heating and air conditioning systems get a rest from constant use. This is the perfect time to get your systems tuned-up and maintained by our licensed professionals. Tune-ups make sure that your system is up and running for when you need them, and it is best to have them done when you are not relying on them to keep your home comfortable. Before making the switch from the heater to the A/C, have both checked and get a tune-up from our professional service staff. Keep your home, and your family comfortable all year long with properly working and maintenanced heaters and air conditioners.

Change Your Furnace Air Filters

With the recent cold fronts, your furnace may be running more often than not. Now is a great time to change your air filters, which will keep your furnace running more efficiently, while keeping the air that blows through the vents cleaner. A dirty air filter can cause congestion, asthma attacks, and more dust in the house. If you don’t change your filter, the quality of your furnace can decrease overtime. Dust, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, and mold spores are trapped by a furnace air filter, but can pass through a dirty one. Replace your filter every month or two.

Winter Air Conditioning Maintenance

Your Air Conditioner may not see use in the cold winter, but you should make sure it is up and running. Air Conditioners should be checked and maintenanced during the winter while you and your family are not relying on it to keep your home cool. While the heat runs strong in your home, the proper care and maintenance on your air conditioner can keep you home cool in the summer without issues.
Filters in an A/C unit should be cleaned or replaced regularly, to keep it running efficiently. A dirty filter can make your air conditioner use up more energy than necessary. The evaporator coil and condenser coils in an A/C can become dirty over time, even with clean filters. Dirty coils can become insulated, which prevents them from absorbing heat and producing cold air. Covering your outdoor central air unit during the winter can keep it from harmful weather or debris.
If your air conditioner requires more than regular maintenance, hire a licensed professional for your service work. Contact us today for more information on air conditioning maintenance, repair, or installation by calling 718-761-2300

Heating and Air Conditioning Maintenance

When dealing with the heating and air conditioning systems for your home, the old saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” can be risky. Your heating and air conditioning systems work to keep you and your family comfortable 24/7, so timely care is essential. The proper maintenance of these systems can keep the bills down and your home comfortable for many more years than a unit that is left untreated.
Why should you perform regular maintenance on your heating system? In addition to the units lasting longer, systems that are properly and regularly maintenance can provide a lot more for a house, and keep you from spending thousands fixing problems. Unchecked systems can cause a variety of issues in your home, such as Carbon Monoxide leaks, corrosion, soot buildup, heat loss, and more. The proper and regular maintenance, performed by a licensed professional 1 to 2 times a year, can lead to lower heating bills, less fire hazards, and can improve the overall efficiency of your heating unit.
Water heater maintenance is also vital in any home. Water heaters that are properly maintained can last longer and will keep extra costs down on the heating and water bills. Pipes are more prone to freezing during cold weather if the water heating system is not properly maintained.
Air conditioner systems should be serviced before the spring and fall, where you will need them to cool down your home. Air conditioners and central air systems should be regularly checked to maintain proper temperature control in a home.

Winter Warning on Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide alarmWintertime is an important time to make sure your carbon monoxide detector is in working order. There is an increased risk of incidents due to the fact that during winter your windows and doors are usually closed to conserve energy. This doesn’t allow gases like  to escape from your home. Carbon monoxide is called the silent killer. It’s a colorless and odorless gas, but the use of a properly installed and maintained carbon monoxide detector along with a properly ventilated home and a properly maintained heating system can prevent most cases of carbon monoxide poisoning. Please perform regular checks on your carbon monoxide detector. Do a test and battery check according to manufacturers recommendations at proper intervals. This can save your life, and the life of your loved ones. Have your heating system checked annually and your fire and carbon monoxide detectors regularly. Keep a set of fresh batteries available at all times.  Make this winter a warm and safe one. If you have questions call us.If your Carbon Monoxide detector alerts you contact the Fire Department. If you have questions on maintenance call us at 718-761-2300.

Tankless Water Heaters

Today’s modern household uses a large amount of hot water; from cleaning, showers, the dishwasher, the laundry room, and more. When using a water heater with a tank, it can take a while for the water to get warm. Waiting for the shower to warm up everyday can run up the water bill. Tankless water heaters can deliver hot water on demand to each system in your home that uses hot water individually.
How do they work? As the hot water faucet is turned on, cold water moves along the pipes into the heating unit. Electric or gas heating units warm the water quickly as it rushes through the system, giving you constant hot water. The process is extremely quick, and you don’t have to wait for the water tank to heat up. Tankless water heaters avoid the heat loss from not using all the water in the tank. You can add more tankless water heaters to each system using hot water in your home. On demand water heaters are also great for bathrooms that are far away from a heating system, outdoor hot tubs, or as a booster for a solar water heating system.
Most tankless water heaters last around 20 years, whereas most water storage heaters have an expected lifespan of 10-15 years. Easily replaceable parts can extend life expectancy for many more. Based on the amount of hot water used in your home, tankless water heaters can make your home up to 50% more energy efficient.
Do discuss the installation and use of tankless water heaters in your home call us at 718-761-2300.
