The Importance of Load Calculation

Monday, December 21st, 2020

When your old heater was installed, was it sized correctly? Did a professional perform a load calculation? If you don’t know what load calculation is, it’s okay. We don’t expect homeowners to be so familiar with HVAC services that they’d understand the complicated math behind these kinds of things. Basically, when a heater is being set up in a home, it needs to accurately be sized according to how much air exists inside the house. The larger the home, the more volume of air the heater needs to be able to heat. It’s that simple!

When it comes to a heating installation in Boerne, TX, you can’t get through it properly without load calculation. If you’d been thinking about signing up with the amateur down the street, we’d like to use this moment to steer you away from that. We perform load calculations on every install we make, so you know we’re the real deal.

Why Should I Consider Zone Control?

Monday, February 18th, 2019

ductless-heatpumpLet’s face it: we are all looking for ways to save a few extra bucks each month. In fact, if there is one thing that you’ll often hear HVAC technicians talk about it is energy efficiency and why it is so important. When your home is energy efficient, you’ll spend less time worrying about costly repairs and high energy bills. Of course, winter here in Texas is anything but harsh. However, it is still important to ensure that your HVAC system is as efficient as possible. So, how do you do so?

There are many ways to boost energy efficiency, one of which is to take control of the ways in which you heat and cool your home. A zone control system grants homeowners ultimate control over their heating and cooling systems, increasing efficiency and lowering monthly utility costs. In this week’s blog, we have outlined some of the many advantages of installing a zone control system in your home. Keep reading below to learn more!

Signs You Need a New Furnace

Monday, February 12th, 2018

heating-repairs-repalcementWe’re in the throes of winter, which means that your furnace is likely running all day every day to keep your home warm and comfortable. Now is the time to check it for signs that it may be on its last legs. If you have an older furnace that has been struggling lately, you’re likely looking at a replacement sometime in the next few years. And while you want to get as much use out of a given heating system as possible, it pays to know when the time has come to put an older unit out to pasture.

Power Levels Are Important with a New Heating System

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

heating-repairs-repalcementWinters are fairly mild in our neck of the woods, but our heating systems still get called into use on a regular basis. If your heater is on its last legs, you may need to get it replaced before the spring. That can lead to a bit of a scramble as you work to get your new heater put in before the next cold front arrives. That doesn’t mean, however, that you should skimp on the necessary steps toward ensuring that your new heating system is working exactly the way it should.

In particular, you should watch out for the comparative power levels of your new heating system. You’re probably aware that an underpowered heater will not be a good fit for your home. It will run constantly — elevating both the monthly costs and the strain on the system — while never really getting your house warm.  But an overpowered heating system can be just as bad.

Benefits of Ductless Heating

Monday, November 27th, 2017

ductless-heating-systemsMost homes in the area rely on centralized heating of some kind or another, which heats the air in a single location and then distributes it through the home with a system of ducts. It’s inexpensive and effective, which makes it a great option for most homes. Some homes, however, can’t support the ducts required, either because their architecture is unique in some way, or simply because they were built before air conditioning was available and thus can’t support a system of ducts.

What Are the Benefits of Geothermal Heating?

Monday, November 13th, 2017

geothermal-HVAC-systemsTraditional heating and cooling systems tend to follow a few well-defined models: blowing heated or cools air through ducts into your home, for example, or boilers that use steam or heated water to provide warmth for the home. They’re popular and efficient systems and if your home has such a system, there’s no need to change it. (We don’t believe in fixing what isn’t broke around here.)

Proper Sizing of New HVAC Units Is Important

Monday, September 18th, 2017

HVAC-system-installationSeptember and October are great times for installing a new HVAC system. With cooler temperatures, your air conditioner likely won’t be needed, but the heating system won’t require regular use either. That provides a nice window to determine the specifics of your new system and perform an installation session: leaving you ready for the winter without having to sacrifice the cool air from the air conditioner in the summer.
