“Why Won’t My Heat Pump Switch Modes?”

December 3rd, 2018

white question mark on blue circle with white backgroundFurnaces have been the traditional mode of heating for homes throughout the country for years now, and for good reason. However, heat pumps are becoming more and more common, due to the benefits that they offer the right homes. They provide two-in-one comfort for year-round use that manages your cooling needs in the summer and your heating needs in the winter.

Of course, if you’re reading this particular post, you probably already have a heat pump in place—one that won’t switch from cooling mode to heating mode. It should, ideally, automatically switch the direction it moves refrigerant so it brings heat into the home, rather than removing it, as soon as you switch modes. But, what if it doesn’t?

Help! One of the Units of My Ductless System Isn’t Working

November 5th, 2018

Closeup view about using some appliance such as air condition.There are a number of great benefits to using a ductless mini split to both heat and cool your home—high efficiency, zone control heating and cooling, less dust and dirt blown out due to the lack of air ducts, and versatility in installation.

One benefit that doesn’t get brought up that much is the fact that ductless systems use multiple air handlers, with individualized temperature control. These are small wall units placed in different rooms and areas of the home, rather than you using a single air handler for the whole-home. So when one unit, or rather one air handler, stops working, you don’t have to lose ALL your heating or cooling—just that one area.

Professional Duct Cleaning: Help Your Family Breathe Easier

October 8th, 2018

ductwork being cleanedIf you’re anything like the average homeowners, chances are you don’t think very much about the ductwork snaking its way through your home. After all, these air ducts are hidden from sight, traveling through spaces between walls or through your attic space. Exposed ducts may be common in some types of commercial spaces, but it’s definitely not the norm in residential spaces.

This is something you should think about though. This is partly because ductwork that’s suffered damage will lead to poor heating and cooling performance, and a rise in your energy bills. For this, you will want to look into professional duct repair or sealing. Yet another factor to consider is the cleanliness of your air ducts. When is the last time you scheduled air duct cleaning in Sugar Land, TX?
