Does My Ductwork Need Repairs?

July 23rd, 2018

ductsWindow unit air conditioners are still commonly used, but they really are not ideal for cooling an entire home. They are noisy, they leave your home unsecured, and you have to lug them around the house, install them for the summer, and take them out when the cooling season is over. They’re handy for single dorm rooms and studio apartments, but a central AC is much, much better for whole-house cooling needs. Unless the ductwork is in bad shape, that is.

Leaky or otherwise damaged air ducts can lead to a whole lot of problems for homeowners. Unfortunately, determining if your air ducts are damaged can be a problem in and of itself. After all, the ducts servicing your home are not really all that visible. It’s not as if you want to be looking at them all of the time, right? Of course not. That is why you need to work with trained professionals to pinpoint the source of any leaks and to resolve them completely. We’re the HVAC company in Fairfield, CT to repair your ducts.

Read on for some tips about common warning signs.

July 9th, 2018

ductless-blowerIdeally, you’ll already have a great air conditioner in place before the heat of the summer season really makes it a necessity. If you got a bit behind schedule with your installation or replacement, or if an unexpected breakdown has left you in need of a prompt installation, then take a moment to consider an option that you may have overlooked: a ductless air conditioner! And no, we are not talking about those noisy, inefficient units that you put in the window frame.

A ductless air conditioner, or ductless mini split, is indeed a whole-house cooling solution—but it doesn’t need to use ductwork in order to distribute conditioned air throughout your home. This makes it ideal for use in a number of applications, including in those homes that do not already have a system of air ducts in place. Read on, and be sure to work with us for all services related to HVAC in Stamford, CT. We’ll find the right system for your needs.

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.

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.
