Balance Your Heating System

One of our most common service calls is for rooms that are “too hot” or “too cold.” If you’ve got this problem, you’re not only uncomfortable, you’re probably wasting energy too.

If you’re willing to spend some time, you can get your system just right.

Here’s How:
  1. Open the dampers in the duct system and all the registers in each room.
  2. Set your thermostat to the level you like.
  3. Place a small thermometer near the middle of each room.
  4. Check the thermometers during the day.
  5. For the rooms that are too warm, partially close the duct system damper supplying those rooms.
  6. If only one room is too warm, partially close the register(s) in that room.
  7. Take more readings until you’re satisfied with your system’s balance.
  8. Mark the damper or registers so you’ll know this setting for future reference.

If this sounds too troublesome, we’d be glad to help. We’ve got electronic instant-read measuring devices for accuracy and speed.

Let us get your house warm all over.

The Leading Cause of Poisoning Death in the U.S.

 It’s not accidental ingestion of cleaning products. Or of medications. Or exposure to lead paints. You might be surprised to find…
Carbon Monoxide is the leading cause of poisoning deaths in the U.S. The danger is especially high in the colder months due to emissions from home furnaces.
To protect your family from the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning:
     •    Install a Carbon Monoxide alarm in a central location outside each sleeping area.
     •    Have your vehicle inspected for exhaust leaks.
     •    Have fuel burning home appliances checked annually by professionals (like us).

Funky Furnace?

At the start of the heating season, a homeowner took the inspection cover off his gas furnace and saw rust inside the cabinet. The furnace was working fine, and he was comfortable in the home. From that perspective, there was nothing wrong. But should that rust really be there?
Sure, it could be normal signs of an aging system – or perhaps something worse. If it’s a rusty heat exchanger, that’s a sign of a problem. If the heat exchanger has leaks or cracks, that could allow carbon monoxide to leak.
A professional contractor can take a look and make your seasonal tune-up both energy-saving and  life-saving.
