While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission.

Does an Electric Furnace Need Annual Maintenance?

November 28th, 2022

Electric furnaces are not as common as natural gas furnaces in local homes, but that doesn’t mean that electric furnaces don’t come with some excellent advantages. Although gas furnaces generally cost less to run and have higher heating capacity, electric furnaces cost less to install upfront, last for around five years longer, run into fewer repair issues, and don’t present any hazards due to gas combustion or toxic exhausts.

The secret to the electric furnace’s longevity and resistance to repairs is that it doesn’t burn gas to work. In a gas furnace, the constant stress of powerful burners and the reaction of combustion gas with other components is what leads to the system declining. Electric furnaces have a more direct and simple method of heating.

Because of the difference between the two furnace types, people often think that electric furnaces don’t need frequent maintenance. At least not every year. But this is wrong! Any home heating system, regardless of its type, benefits from pre-season maintenance done each year.

How We Can Help Your Home’s Air Quality in Fall

November 14th, 2022

Air quality in homes has become more important to people than ever. You’ve probably wondered if your air quality is as good as it could be, and what to do if it’s not. 

We have a bit of bad news: it’s likely that your home’s indoor air quality is poor. This isn’t because you’ve done something wrong. Modern homes don’t allow for much fresh air circulation, allowing numerous contaminants to build up indoors without an easy escape. The number of sources for indoor contaminants has also increased, leading to more volatile organic compounds (VOCs) floating around the air than ever before.

But we have good news as well: we offer the indoor air quality services in New Braunfels, TX that can significantly improve your home’s IAQ, and the fall is a great time to get started with them. That way you’ll be ready for the colder days of winter when your house will be sealed off more to the outside. 

Let’s look at how we can help you and your family to enjoy healthier, more pleasant household air.

When Is the Best Time to Replace Aging Commercial Cooling Equipment?

October 3rd, 2022

Most commercial air conditioning systems are located on the roof of buildings, which makes it easy for people in the business to take the system for granted. If you can’t see the AC itself, it’s hard to tell if the system is getting decrepit and old the way you can with the condenser unit sitting outside a house.

It’s important to know when it’s time to schedule commercial AC service in Cibolo, TX to replace aging air conditioning units. You don’t want to keep the system running until it completely fails: that not only risks causing downtime for your business, it can contribute to much higher energy bills and unnecessary repair calls. 

We’re going to look at ways you can get ahead of a failed commercial cooling system and schedule a timely air conditioning replacement with our technicians.

September 5th, 2022

The window air conditioning unit was a revelation when it appeared in the 1950s. It made air conditioning easily affordable to residential buildings and homes. But in the decades since, central air conditioning has taken over, and window units are now best used for small apartments. 

You may live in a house that must rely on AC units because it lacks a central heating and cooling system. We’ll explain why we don’t recommend continuing to use these window ACs.

Is My AC’s Air Filter Enough for Cleaner Indoor Air?

August 22nd, 2022

To take the best care of your home’s central air conditioning system, you need to change its air filter on a regular basis. We recommend changing it every one to three months so that the AC will run optimally without raising the cost to operate it. 

But if there’s an air filter on your AC, doesn’t that take care of cleaning your home’s air? It sounds like it should. So why would you want to look into other indoor air quality options?

The answer is that the air conditioner’s filter doesn’t do what you think it does. If your home has too much dust, lint, dander, and other airborne particles floating around, that AC filter isn’t much help at reducing them. You’ll need different types of air filters in New Braunfels, TX for healthier, cleaner air.
