How do you know when it’s time to consider upgrading to a new heating system? Obviously if the unit has died or is not working, but it may be wise to consider replacement well before that happens or before costly repairs add up. Many things can greatly affect the longevity and efficiency of your furnace, heat pump or boiler system over the years such as not changing the air filters often enough or not having regular maintenance to ensure proper operation.

Coil care for your HVAC system is very important. A coil is a main component of your HVAC System. There is a condenser coil and an evaporator coil. These coils are an integral part of the heat exchange that happens when cooling your air. These coils contain your refrigerant. Many older systems used Freon (R22) while more recent systems use Puron (R410a).
The benefits of an attic ventilation fan are more cumulative rather than instantaneous. An attic fan operates as an exhaust and will work to push hot air out of the attic through a shuttered or louvered vent. As heat continually rises, the attic fan will help eliminate accumulating heat.
As the heat is evacuated, moisture and odors can also be reduced.

Allergens we cannot see or smell, but they can cause significant health issues especially if you have allergies.
