How Does Sealed Ductwork Help Your HVAC System?

Monday, December 12th, 2016

If you have a ducted HVAC system, then you likely have some understanding of just how important your ductwork is to the performance of your HVAC system. Unfortunately, not many homeowners think about this integral part of their heating and air conditioning system until something goes wrong—neglecting it for the most part. This is mostly because the ducts are hidden from view.

Ductwork also has no mechanical components, so it’s understandable to believe that they wouldn’t have very many issues. Air ducts often have leaks, however. They could be coming from small tears here and there throughout the ductwork, but even small leaks can add up to big problems. The solution to this isn’t a costly replacement of your ductwork (hopefully), but rather professional air duct sealing. Keep reading to learn some reasons why you should invest in this service.

Is Your Heat Pump Struggling?

Monday, November 7th, 2016

We don’t use our heating systems much here in Florida, and as such many homeowners choose to forgo the traditional furnace or boiler for a heat pump, as they can effectively cool and heat a home.

This means that before our heating season hits—albeit short—your heat pump is prone to internal problems. In order to keep your heat pump in the best condition possible, it’s important to keep it well maintained, and stay on top of any repair needs that may crop up. But how do you know if you have a problem?
