Want to Live Comfortably More Affordably? Consider a DC Variable Speed Motor

September 19th, 2016

If you use a furnace in order to keep your home comfortable during the heating season, then you do so by distributing heated air throughout your home via a system of ductwork. In order to do that, you need a blower to force that air through the ductwork—hence the phrase “forced air” heating. The blower in your system is powered by electricity, and the amount of energy that it uses to distribute air through your home can have a  serious affect on your overall efficiency levels.

Why Does My Gas Furnace Smell When I First Turn It on in the Fall?

September 12th, 2016

Your home’s furnace, like everything in your home, collects dust on it over time. This is especially true if your air filter system allows air to go around the filter, or you do not have a high efficiency air cleaner.

So when that furnace fires up for the first time in fall, it will burn off the dust that has collected on the heat exchanger or electric elements since the last heating season. Sometimes it may even emit a small amount of carbon monoxide into the house and create that smell—burning dust!  The same thing will likely happen when you turn on your gas fireplace for the first time in the fall, too.

Subpar Cooling? Your Thermostat May Be the Culprit

August 30th, 2016

When your air conditioner is not cooling your home as effectively as it once did, or if it is costing more to run than it used to, you may start to sweat—and not just because it’s still so hot out.
