More than 66 million homes across the country use natural gas
in some way. It’s the preferred power source for kitchens and the most reliable
way to provide warmth while also saving money. Yet people still have concerns
about the safety of using natural gas. It’s easy to become worried when you
hear about accidents with natural gas resulting in fires, explosions, or carbon
It’s true that natural gas can become hazardous, and the gas
furnace in your home does have the potential to create safety issues. However, natural
gas would not be used in 66 million homes (and five million businesses) if it
was a regular safety problem. Gas furnaces are constructed to operate as safely
as possible. As long as you have the furnace serviced regularly—annual
professional maintenance tune-ups and prompt repairs as necessary—you and your
family can enjoy years of worry-free heating.
However, we recommend you read below to find out how the furnace might turn dangerous. Arming yourself with this knowledge can help you know when to call us for professional furnace service in Georgetown, DE.

What is the condition of the ductwork in your home? Your
answer is probably that you don’t know. This makes sense, because it’s difficult
to see these air channels that are set within the walls and the attic of the
house. Even if you could see stretches of the ductwork, you might not recognize
spots where air was leaking unless you have a trained eye.
Basically, it takes a Dover, DE, HVAC contractor to determine the condition of your ducts through the process of duct testing. We offer duct testing as part of our service to care for home ventilation systems (the “V” in HVAC). This might sound like an unimportant job, but duct testing is useful. In fact, it can mean the difference in an efficient and comfortable home, and an inefficient, unevenly heated and cooled, and unhealthy home.

Any HVAC contractor who cares about their customers’ safety and comfort recommends annual fall maintenance for household heating systems. No matter if you use a gas furnace, electric furnace, boiler, in-floor heating system, heat pump, or ductless system, it needs to have a fall tune-up and inspection from our professionals. We are the Georgetown, DE, HVAC contractor with the ideal maintenance plan to see to not only your heating needs, but your cooling needs as well.

Although furnaces are the most common type of heating system
in the country, boilers are close behind them. Particularly in our area, with
many homes built without a central ventilation system. Boilers provide powerful
and clean heating (no dust blown around from vents) and they often outlast
other types of systems.
Not all HVAC contractors in the area provide boiler
services, but we do. We’d like to share a few facts with you about boilers that
may help you understand yours better—and that will help you know when to call
our technicians for assistance.

Efficiency is an important word when it comes to HVAC systems. People want to make sure they have heating and air conditioning units that waste as little energy as possible. This not only keeps utility bills lower, it’s better for the environment because it puts less strain on power plants and natural resources. The US Department of Energy has a program called ENERGY STAR to help consumers identify products with superior energy efficiency and quality features. When you’re hunting for a new heating system or other HVAC product, look for the ENERGY STAR label.
But you’ll also want to look at the actual efficiency rating
of the appliance, and this can become a bit confusing because different appliances
have different criteria. Sometimes, efficiency ratings can be misleading without
some extra information—and this is the case with the two most common types of
furnaces, gas and electric.

You’re reading this because it’s fall and you have plans to
make a big change to your HVAC system before the winter weather arrives. You’re
debating about a new choice for comfort: a heat pump. Heat pumps are similar to
air conditioners—they move heat from one place to another using the circulation
of refrigerant. The difference is heat pumps can switch the direction they
operate so they function as both air conditioners and heaters.
This sounds like a dream choice, doesn’t it? Your year-round
comfort needs taken care of with a single system that can switch jobs with an adjustment
of the thermostat. Of course, it can’t be that simple. And it isn’t.

October is the best time of the year to plan for a maintenance
inspection and tune-up for the heater in your home, no matter if you use a furnace,
a boiler, a heat pump, or a ductless mini split system. These annual
inspections are essential for a heater to work in top shape, avoid unnecessary
repair work, and stay within manufacturer’s safety limits. It’s not something
you can skip a year here or there.
Fortunately, arranging for this service is straightforward: call a professional Delaware HVAC contractor who offers a maintenance program. Signing up for one of these programs not only provides you with heating maintenance each year, it usually includes air conditioning maintenance in the spring and a raft of other benefits.
We offer a complete HVAC maintenance program for our
customers. If you aren’t signed up, give us a call today so we can get you on the
schedule as soon as possible to inspect and care for your heater before the winter

One problem that our experts in air conditioning services in Seaford, DE often handle for our customers is fixing uneven cooling in a home. It’s something of a marvel that modern air conditioning can provide even cooling in the first place when you consider the size of many homes, the difficulties of air circulation, and the many ways heat can enter different parts of a house. However, the technology of modern central air conditioners allows for a proper level of cooling and air balancing that can deliver the even spread of comfort homeowners want.
The uneven cooling problem we run into the most is the upper
floor that’s warmer than the first floor. Heat rises, and this makes it easy
for the second floor to become stuffy. Heat also enters through the sun on the
roof, adding to the problem. There are other potential obstacles to a
comfortably cooled-off second floor. We’ll take a look at what can be done to
fix this problem.

Hot weather continues through September and into October, and air conditioning systems that have put in work since the start of summer are now at a higher danger of a breakdown. Enough stress can accumulate on even the best-maintained AC to lead to a malfunction.
We want to help you avoid a late-season air conditioning repair in Delaware. Our technicians are ready to help you with 24/7 repairs whenever your AC begins to fail. (Never hesitate to call. Delaying air conditioning repairs because fall weather is coming soon is a poor plan that can lead to worse problems.) To help you take the pressure off your cooling system, we’re going to talk about the limitations of what your air conditioner can do. Pushing your AC over these limits is a fast way to have a broken AC.
