Alternative Types of HVAC System

Monday, January 29th, 2018

alternative-heating-systems.Most people in the area use traditional centralized heating and air conditioning systems to keep their homes comfortable. A furnace generates hot air and an AC cold air—both in a centralized location—which is then blown through the ducts in the house with a fan. They’re inexpensive, comparatively simple, and easy to operate, which is what makes them so popular.

They’re not the only means of keeping a home comfortable, however, and in some cases an alternative system might work better. Older houses may not be able to support the ducts necessary for a centralized system, while larger homes may struggle to feel as warm or as cool as they should with a centralized system. If your home can’t support a centralized system or has experienced recurring problems with its effectiveness, you might want to consider other options. We’ve laid out a few below for you to consider.

How Does Regular Heating Maintenance Help You?

Monday, November 28th, 2016

Winter is on its way here in Round Rock, TX, and chances are you’ve already used your heating system a number of times this year. If you haven’t scheduled one already, now is an excellent time to set up maintenance for your system from a trained technician. Maintenance isn’t quite the same thing as a repair call. Repairs are designed to address a single specific problem such as a faulty fan motor or a damaged burner.

It’s also designed to look for any larger issues that may be coming down the road: letting you schedule repairs before they force your system to shut down.

Winters in Round Rock, TX aren’t as cold as they are further north, but dry air can still be a big problem.
