Why Boiler Installation May Be the Right Heating Choice for You

Monday, October 27th, 2014

Boilers are sometimes seen as “old fashioned” when it comes to heating a home—which is a bit strange since furnaces are actually a much older type of heater. Boilers are still an excellent way to provide your house with winter warmth, and in many cases a boiler might be the number one choice for you. For more information on boiler installation in Shelton, CT and throughout Fairfield and New Haven Counties, contact Celco Heating and Air Conditioning today.

Some benefits from installing a boiler

Boilers have a number of advantages that may give them the edge when it comes to choosing new heating installation. Here are a few:

  • Even, efficient heat: One of the problems with heating that both furnaces and heat pumps encounter is that they do not evenly spread heat through rooms. The heated air blows out of vents and then drifts to the top of a room where it gathers. But boilers use radiant heat coming from radiators or baseboard heaters, which create a fast and even distribution of heat through a room. Baseboard heaters, which combine radiant heat and a convection current, are especially fast and effective at delivering warmth.
  • Longevity: Few home heating systems have the lifespan possibilities of a boiler. They have only a few mechanical parts that can wear down over time, so a boiler can easily make it past 20 years of service if it receives the proper care.
  • Low repair needs: Linked to their small number of moving parts, boilers usually have fewer repair problems that will require calling for professionals. A properly maintained boiler should give you many years of pleasing and problem-free warmth.
  • Clean heat: Unlike furnaces and standard heat pumps, a boiler does not use ductwork to send heated air to the rooms. This means that a boiler will not pick up dust and dirt contamination. The radiant heat that comes from baseboard heaters and cast iron radiators is clean and won’t lower your indoor air quality. This is especially beneficial if you have people in your home who suffer from allergies or asthma.
  • Quiet operation: If you are tired of noisy, rattling furnaces, a boiler will be a great relief, since it will make hardly any noise at all.
  • Flexible energy source: Boilers can run from different energy sources: natural gas, electricity, oil. No matter your home’s available power and your budget, there’s a boiler to fit it.

Although boilers make excellent options for home heating, they still are not ideal for every household. We have almost 40 years of experience installing all kinds of heating systems in homes, and we will help you find the solution to efficiently and effectively keep your household cozy through this winter and many to come.

Signs You Need Duct Repair in Shelton

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Your ductwork is an integral part of your air conditioning system, but it is also the most overlooked because it isn’t visible. Faulty ductwork can be highly inefficient, which is why it’s important for your ductwork to be in good shape. Duct repair in Shelton, CT can help keep your ductwork healthy and efficient, but to truly reap the benefits of ductwork repair, it should always be handled by a professional. Celco Heating and Air Conditioning has been repairing ductwork since 1976, so we bring almost 40 years of knowledge and experience to every job we do.

Is It Time for Duct Repair?

There are some common signs it may be time for duct repair in your home:

  • Consistent whistling noises – do you hear whistling noises coming through the vents every time your AC delivers air? This can indicate leaks in the ductwork through which air is seeping.
  • Uneven cooling – are there hot and cold areas in your home? Are there rooms that seem to receive less air than others? When certain ducts have cracks, holes and disconnections, the air flow is interrupted and can create uneven cooling in your home.
  • Unpleasant odors – musty smells coming from your ductwork can indicate the presence of mold and/or mildew growth in the ducts. Mold and mildew aren’t just stinky, they can be very unhealthy for the people in your home.
  • Excess humidity – have you noticed that the moisture level in your home has increased? Air from the outside can enter your air flow due to the cracks and holes in the vent work, and get delivered right into your living spaces.
  • High energy bills – air loss is one of the biggest problems with faulty ductwork. It is estimated that you can lose up to 30% of your air just from faulty ducts. This puts stress on your air conditioner as it has to make up for that loss, and does so by using more energy.

If you are seeing the signs of faulty ductwork in your home, it may be time to call Celco Heating and Air Conditioning for duct repair in Shelton, CT. Call us today and schedule an appointment.
