Did you know that radiators were built from cast iron, which weighs 450 pounds per square foot? These can put a lot of strain on an older commercial building, but HVAC experts can get you set up with a more modern system that won't strain your building as much.


The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) is a standard efficiency measurement for gas- and oil-fired furnaces. In percentages, this number provides the amount of fuel used to heat a building and the amount of fuel that is wasted. The higher the AFUE rating, the greater that system’s efficiency.


When determining the appropriate commercial heating system for your business, one thing you need to keep in mind is climate. A temperate climate will require a much different system than one with extreme temperature differences.


If you’re like many businesses, you may have certain times of the year when your cash flow is much lower than you’d like. Keeping up with the regular maintenance on your heating system can provide valuable notice that you’ll soon need to replace your equipment.


When it comes to commercial heating systems, regular maintenance is essential to the efficiency of the system. When the coils of the system are filled with dirt and grime, the entire system has to work hard, leading to higher operating costs.


Ductwork is often a component of the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system and carries warm air throughout your home during the colder, winter months. The main ductwork supply is in the ductwork trunk, which distributes the highest air volume. The side branches of this system are what enable each room to be comfortably heated in the winter months.


The size of heater should be directly proportionate to the space you want to heat. For example, oversized HVAC systems increase costs when being installed and operated daily, in addition to wasting energy. This would be avoided with a correctly sized system.


In winter, it may feel nice to fold clothes fresh out of your warm dryer, but use some caution. Your dryer vents moist, hot air as part of the drying process -- and some of that warm air was generated by your HVAC system to keep YOU warm.


When you're evaluating your estimates for heating equipment replacement, don't forget that paying to do the installation right can lower your ongoing repair and maintenance bills.


The U.S. Department of Energy recognizes several different classes of heating equipment. These include central warm-air furnaces (either oil or natural gas), steam or hot water systems, and built in electric units.


Did you realize that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), recommends having your furnace inspected annually? A yearly inspection during the spring will identify potential safety issues in plenty of time to have them repaired before the cool weather sets in.


You may need to replace your heating if your system is an old coal burner that was previously switched over to oil or gas, or if it is a gas furnace without electronic ignition. If your system still has a pilot light, it was probably installed before 1992 and has the lowest-possible efficiency rate.


Did you realize that installing a few ceiling fans in your home can you save money by relocating furnace heated air down from the ceiling to the occupied areas of your rooms? That way your furnace won't have to work as hard -- or as expensively.


Around 1845, during the presidency of James K. Polk, The White House's furnace system was extended to include ducts built to heat the State Room and second floors. The State rooms, offices, and bedrooms got plaster-lined air ducts with silver, iron, or brass registers.


As any piece of equipment ages, it will naturally begin to run less efficiently and cost-effectively than it used to. If your heating system is costing more to run than it used to, it may be time to have it serviced by an HVAC professional.


While your warehouse employees may be able to bundle up and keep working on some days when the heat is out, that may not always be safe or possible on the coldest days of the year. Having a professional deal with your heating system challenges right away can help keep your employees safe and productive.


Did you know that, if you replace an older furnace with one that has an Annual Fuel Utilization (AFUE) rating of 60 percent, you could save about 40 percent on heating bills? The energy savings, in time, would pay for the cost of the replacement furnace.


If you have a structure that is unoccupied or that will be left unattended for an extended period during cold months, consider having heating boiler anti-freeze added to the system. It is a non-toxic liquid that prevents both freeze damage and mold build up.


According to the federal Energy Efficiency Program (EEP), an average Energy-Star-rated commercial HVAC unit can save as much as $735 in energy costs over the course of its lifetime. A top-rated one can save as much as $1,785, or more than twice as much.


Do you ever worry that you may be performing routine maintenance on your HVAC system too infrequently? When you can’t afford to have your heat go out when you’re trying to work, we’re always available to help you ensure you’re getting the right level of service.

If you are not sure if your home heating system was properly installed – especially in an older home that added central heating after construction – have it inspected. One sure sign of a problem is poorly located return air openings, as they can interfere with fuel combustion.


To determine whether your basement is leaking heat from your home, you should do several things: inspect it for excess moisture, repair any leaks, and check the edges around windows for air leaks.


People often ask how important an air filter is in their heating or cooling system. The trapped air that we breathe in our homes can be loaded with dust, pollen, plant spores, and other pollutant particles, potentially making the indoor air quality worse than outdoors. So, having a clean air filter is extremely important!


It is very important to keep the part of your air conditioner that draws air into the system uncovered. This reduces the chances of airflow obstruction and helps your unit run efficiently.


There are many signs that your cooling system should be replaced. Have your utility bills increase recently? When a system is old and struggles to cool your home that results in higher utility bills. With a new cooling system you can significantly reduce your monthly utility costs.


The bottom line is, central air conditioning units make less noise than other air conditioning options. This is because the condenser, fan, and compressor are located in an outdoor unit or remote place of the home rather than in a nearby window.


If you are looking to install an HVAC cooling system and your home doesn't already have ducts, then you might want to consider a split ductless system. Unlike central systems, split ductless systems need no ductwork, making them less expensive to install in most cases.


Do you have cracks or small holes around windows and doors that allows the outside air to come inside? A cooling expert can inspect your home to determine what you can do to help your cooling system operate efficiently.


Does it ever seem like one side of your home is a muggy sauna in the summer while the other side is a frigid tundra? Let's talk about what could be causing these drastic temperature differences and what can be done to regulate the temperatures in your home.


It's important to remember that there may come a time when your old air conditioning unit will cost more to repair and operate than it would to replace. Let's talk about the issues you've been having with your unit and whether it's time to start planning for a system change out.


Have you ever heard the term, "room air distribution"? This refers to the way that air flows through a room. It's also characterized by how air in introduced to rooms and removed from spaces. This is an important factor for HVAC technicians, engineers, and system designers to consider.


Basically, centralized air conditioning units send cool air directly through air ducts or vents located in each room. As the cold air is blown in, ambient air is pulled into the air handler unit from each room through return air ducts, thereby completing the loop.


Are you the type of person who typically only remembers to change out their air filter maybe once or twice a year? Changing your filter monthly can help to ensure that airflow isn't restricted, which could be making your unit work harder than it should.


Did you know that condensation buildup is one of the most common problems people have with their air conditioners? The culprit of this buildup is usually a leaky tube or ice buildup from a dirty filter.


AC contractors recommend that, in order to keep your unit running at optimal efficiency, to avoid running a dehumidifier at the same time the air conditioner is operating. Running both simultaneously will increase the cooling load and force your AC to work much harder.


How can mold end up inside your home? The tiny spores the mold produces can travel inside your home and end up in any area of the home. If the spores locate in an area with sufficient warmth and moisture, mold will soon appear and spread through that area.


In some air conditioning system, humidity levels are controlled via heat pipe heat exchangers or run-around coils. Either of these components will word to reduce the sensible heat capacity of the AC system, forcing it to run longer and thus remove more moisture.


Did you know that running appliances like your dishwasher can increase the temperature in your home? When appliances and the temperatures outside are both making your home hot, your AC unit will have to work twice as hard to cool your home.


Did you know that a cooling system in your home can also clean the air? A central air system is designed to move the air in your home through a filter that can remove even minute contaminants such as dirt, dust, pollen and pet dander.


Do you have babies or elderly people in your home? These loved ones are most likely to be affected by an increase level of contaminants in the house because of a HVAC system that isn't operating efficiently. Installing a new central cooling system can reduce the incidence of allergy symptoms and respiratory illnesses.


Ask your air-conditioning expert about the steps you can take to ensure the longest possible life for your cooling system. In addition to regular maintenance, many experts recommend that homeowners regularly clean the air conditioning filter.


Getting to know your air-conditioning contractor through regular maintenance visits can pay off when record summer heat inundates all cooling companies with calls. As a regular customer, you'll generally be handled as soon as possible.


An HVAC system will do more than just cool your home. It will also lower the humidity to comfortable levels. High humidity levels can create moisture which can then lead to mold and mildew. The EPA recommends an indoor humidity level between 30 and 50 percent.


It's not cost effective to purchase too small of an air conditioning unit for the space you want to cool. Although the initial price might be lower, a unit that's too small will run constantly on hot days (driving up your bills) and still won't cool the area sufficiently.
