How to Deal with Dusty Ducts

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

ductwork-being-cleanedWhatever is in your ductwork is what is going to be making its way into your home. This means that when you run the heater and there is hot air in your ducts, it will come through into your home. The same applies to cool air during summer. And, of course, if there is a large amount of dust and debris in your ductwork, that will also make it into your home.

So, the next time you turn on your ductwork, consider what you are going to be blowing into your home. Is it just temperature-controlled air, or are you creating a small house-sized dust storm?

If you have dusty ductwork, there is a great solution to the problem that we can offer you: duct cleaning for your HVAC in Katy, TX.

Why Now is the Time to Update Your AC System

Monday, February 24th, 2020

ac-unit-with-tools-in-backyardThere is a hint of spring in the air as temperatures have begun to nudge towards the high 60s and the sun has started to make longer appearances. It is a great sign that warm weather is around the corner and most of us are ready to enjoy that sunshine!

Before the thermostat starts to really rise though we want to make sure that your home is ready for the summer season too. Your HVAC in Katy, TX sees a lot of use throughout the year but never so much as it does when you need it to cool your home during the sweltering summertime. And we are sad to say that eventually that use does add up and lead to the need for a system replacement.

Thankfully, now is one of the best times to get an air conditioner replacement and we can tell you why.

The Role Your Insulation Plays in Your HVAC System’s Operation

Monday, November 4th, 2019

technician-installing-blown-in-insulationToday’s newly built homes often tote the detail that they are “green and efficient” because they are sealed. This means that the way they are built reduces air leakage which helps to improve the efficiency of the homes systems by making it easier to maintain the ideal indoor temperature.

One big factor in your home’s efficiency is it’s insulation. This may seem like a strange concept since this is merely the fluffy material between the inner and out wall of your home. However, insulation is one of the biggest players when it comes to keeping your house temperate and comfortable. And we are here to explain how (and to offer our HVAC services in Katy, TX when your insulation isn’t enough to keep your heater in good working order anymore).

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

Monday, 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?

Commercial Cooling: Eliminate Wasted Space with Rooftop Units

Monday, April 9th, 2018

rooftop HVAC unitsYour commercial HVAC system differs from residential systems in a number of ways. First off, it likely has to cool more space, and you might have specific cooling needs that must be met for your business to function as it should. For instance, perhaps you need to keep computer system from overheating, or maybe you are a manufacturing business and have specialized refrigeration needs.

Commercial spaces require specialized care and attention when it comes to HVAC installations and services, so it’s important that you use a company you can trust for the job. In most cases, we recommend the use of rooftop units when it comes to commercial HVAC in Houston, TX. These consist of multiple, modular, units placed atop your commercial space.

This may seem counterintuitive—exposing your air conditioner to blazing hot summers—however, commercial units are developed to handle these issues easily, plus they offer a number of benefits for business and commercial property owners.

technician servicing furnaceWe are well into fall, and even though our temperatures don’t dip as drastically low as they do in other parts of the country, we still have some pretty cold weather to contend with! That being said, the time to schedule Katy, TX HVAC maintenance for your heating system is now!
