What is an HVAC Sequencer?

Monday, December 13th, 2021

Unless you’re an HVAC professional, chances are you know very little about the inner workings of a furnace or air conditioning system. That’s okay! We wouldn’t expect you to know a whole lot about this. But it’s only natural that you’re curious, and we’re happy to answer whatever questions you might have. Some of the questions we get revolve around the components of an HVAC system and how or why they need to be repaired on occasion.

We would never encourage DIY AC or furnace repairs, for safety reasons, but we’re happy to let you in on what these various components are and what they do. Take the HVAC sequencer, for instance. This is a component designed to stage different parts of the electrical equipment within the HVAC system so that it doesn’t overload and damage the circuits within the system itself or your home’s electrical system.

What is the Effectiveness of a UV Light in HVAC?

Monday, September 27th, 2021

For almost two years now, there’s been an intense focus on how to stay as healthy as possible while isolating at home–or at least staying home a lot more than we have in previous years! As a result, more and more homeowners are thinking about their indoor air quality. Even pre-pandemic, the average home without the right indoor air quality systems and services in place could have worse indoor air quality than outdoor air quality.

If you haven’t already done so, you’d do well to consider the installation of a whole-house UV air purifier. Also referred to as UV lights or even UV germicidal lights, these indoor air quality systems are key to helping homeowners breathe healthier, or at least metaphorically “breathe easier” at home, knowing they’re well protected.

How Much Does It Cost to Put Ductwork in a House?

Monday, April 26th, 2021

One of the most important investments you’ll make for your home is your HVAC systems. We say this because those systems tend to account for about half of all your energy bills throughout the year. Therefore, you want to make sure that you get one that meets your budget now, as well as throughout the seasons.

One factor that homeowners might not consider in all this budgeting is the cost of ductwork. If you already have ductwork in place but it’s decades old, then you may be looking at duct sealing or duct repair needs. On the other hand, if you’re having ductwork installed for the first time, you’ll have to factor in this cost with the other costs of an AC system installation.

Perhaps for years now, you’ve been “getting by” with window AC units in each room of your home.  But what if you could do much more than just “get by”? You should be able to enjoy comfort in your home as affordably and effectively as possible, and that’s not always possible with a window unit.

How Does a 2 Zone HVAC System Work?

Monday, March 8th, 2021

Temperatures are slowly but surely warming up, letting us know that spring is right around the corner and summer isn’t very far behind. You may think it’s not quite time yet to start thinking about your air conditioner, but we beg to differ. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about your air conditioner.

If you have an aging system and are considering a replacement this year, you may be considering a 2 zone HVAC system. A zoned HVAC system splits your home into “zones” using motorized dampers, controlled by external thermostats, which are placed in the ductwork. This allows you to turn off cooling (or heating) to one section of the home while still providing other sections of the home with cooling or heating. Will this type of cooling or heating benefit your home? Read on to find out!

What Does SEER Mean in HVAC?

Monday, February 15th, 2021

While in many areas of the country homeowners are still dealing with the chilliest of winter temperatures, we know that with spring right around the corner, temperatures can warm back up real quick! So if your air conditioner was on its last leg this past summer, now is the time to start looking into a replacement. This isn’t a decision you want to rush into—you should make sure your new AC system is properly matched to the type of home you have and your individual comfort needs.

You’ll also want to look into SEER ratings when making your decision, too.

Wait, unsure what SEER means? Well, it’s an energy efficiency rating that applies to all central air conditioner and heat pump systems. Knowing the efficiency rating of your new air conditioner could be the difference between affordable comfort and astronomically high energy bills.
