April 30th, 2018

dog-under-blanketThis winter really didn’t want to leave, but it is finally looking like it has taken the hint and is beginning its retreat. That doesn’t mean that your heater is necessarily done with its work for the season, of course. The nighttime temperatures are still pretty chilly, and you may need your heater to take the edge off just a bit for a while longer. Even if you are pretty much done with the system for the season, we suggest that you schedule repairs now rather than wait for the start of next winter.

April 16th, 2018

temperature-guage-just-rightIdeally, you would be able to invest in a great heating or air conditioning system, and then you’d never have to think about that system again.

How Do Boilers Distribute Heat?

April 2nd, 2018

hydronic-heatingFor many homeowners, the word “heater” immediately conjures up and image of the furnaces in their homes. Furnaces are forced air heaters, meaning that they heat air directly and then distribute that heat throughout the house via a system of ductwork. Like any heater, furnaces have their pros and their cons. Many of these cons are corrected by the way in which a boiler, on the other hand, distributes heat throughout a house. That’s what we are going to be looking at today.

Boilers have been around for a very long time, and it is really no surprise that they maintain such a level of popularity today. While the boiler may not be right for every home or every homeowner–no heater is, or else there wouldn’t be so many options available!–it is the right fit for many situations. Read on, and be sure to contact our Greenwich, CT HVAC professionals if you have any questions about using a boiler in your home.
