The Pros and Cons of Radiant Heating

May 22nd, 2023

There are two main types of heating systems in the world–forced-air heating and radiant heating. Contrary to some popular beliefs, they’re actually quite different from one another.

A forced-air heating system is something like a furnace or a heat pump, heating the air of your home which then allows everything else to stay warm. A radiant heating system in Tallahassee, FL is going to radiate heat through walls and objects using either electrical resistance or hot water.

Each heating system has its own pros and cons, and different homeowners enjoy them for different reasons. So, if you’re on the fence about your next heating system and you’ve never explored radiant heating, now is your chance! Keep reading to learn more about our radiant heating systems and why they might be perfect for your home.

A Dehumidifier Definitely Helps!

May 8th, 2023

Dehumidifiers are tools, just like anything else we use in our daily lives. It’s not so much about what it does that makes it a hot topic of conversation, it’s how we use it that makes the difference.

As most of us know, a dehumidifier absorbs the moisture from the atmosphere and collects it so it can be dumped out. This is fairly straightforward, but it’s essential to several different things going on in your home.

For instance, without moisture in the atmosphere, it’s hard for temperatures to feel humid and muggy. Also, mold and fungus have a harder time growing in dry atmospheres meaning that dehumidifiers in Tallahassee, FL are essential for combatting an infestation.

Today, we’d like to give you a few reasons why a dehumidifier might be such an important addition to your home comfort systems. And luckily enough, we provide dehumidifier installations at an affordable rate if you’re ready to purchase one by the end of this blog.

When Is an AC Repair Too Expensive?

April 10th, 2023

The Problem With Leaking Ducts

March 13th, 2023

What if every time you tried to take a drink of water on a hot day, 30% of it leaked out of the glass before it hit your lips? Wouldn’t that make you angry? And then, if you tried to eat a delicious sandwich for lunch, 30% of it fell right into the trash before you got a taste. Again, another obnoxious thing that would make anyone livid.

Well, those might sound fantastical, but in the HVAC world they’re not so unrealistic. For instance, a set of air ducts in disrepair could be leaking up to 30% of the conditioned air that’s created by your air conditioner (or heater) and losing it before it reaches the rooms of your home. You might not be able to see it because it’s being leaked elsewhere and because it’s air, but it could be happening. It might be time to call a professional for duct sealant in Tallahassee, FL.

Why Is My Furnace Dripping?

February 13th, 2023

Combustion of gas into warmth sounds like a simple process when we’re describing what a furnace does. But combustion is far from simple! Burning gas releases a whole lot of different chemicals into the air, from carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide, and even water vapor.
