As long as it’s basically functional, you probably don’t think about your thermostat very much. And when we tell you that new, high-tech thermostats have greater precision and are easier to read and set, you might shrug. That sounds nice, you might think, but I’m not sure it’s worth the bother.

But what if we could tell you how to cut your yearly heating and cooling bill by about ten percent? The US Energy Information Administration did a study that found that residents of New England spend more on heating and cooling our homes than residents of any other region of the US. Paying ten percent less for heating and cooling means significant savings for you. Here’s how a thermostat upgrade can help you achieve that.

Monday, 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.

How Do Boilers Distribute Heat?

Monday, 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.

technician-workingEvery homeowner is eventually going to require professional HVAC repairs at some point. We apologize if that sounds pessimistic to you,  but we have another word for it: realistic. The fact of the matter is that no heater or air conditioning system will ever be 100% reliable. Mechanical systems of all kinds fail from time to time, and there is nothing in the foreseeable future that is going to change that fact.

In fact, that is exactly what we’ll be talking about in today’s post. So strap in, and take some advice from the Greenwich, CT HVAC professionals on our team about how you can limit your experience with HVAC problems.

Why Does My Heater Keep Starting and Stopping?

Monday, January 8th, 2018

dog-under-blanketIf your heater is up and running and producing heat, then you may think that everything is just fine. This is not necessarily true, though, and that is a lesson that too many homeowners wind up learning the hard way. In fact, you should never wait for your heater to break down completely before scheduling repairs. There are plenty of other problems that will develop leading up to such an event, and they all deserve to be taken seriously. This is the case with short cycling.

Today, we are going to look at what short cycling really is, as well as the problems that may cause it—and the problems caused by it.
