Heating Tips

Most U.S. homes are heated with either furnaces or boilers. Furnaces heat air and distribute the heated air through the house using ducts. Boilers heat water, and provide either hot water or steam for heating.

Did Your Know Homes Annually Spend From 500 – 2000 dollars a season to heat a home

Block Cold Air

  • Fill As many holes & foundation gaps as possible with insulation.

  • Having your heating units cleaned once a year and changing the filters at least 3 times a year we recommend every 30-60 days

  • 25 % of the air traveling through a poorly installed system never arrives at its intended destination. If you find air leaks anywhere, seal them with foil tape or duct putty

  • Check the condition of your vent connection pipe and chimney. Parts of the venting system may have deteriorated over time. 

  • Chimney problems can be expensive to repair, and may help justify installing new heating equipment that won't use the existing chimney.

  • boiler heat exchangers leak water and are easy to spot. If you have water under your unit give us a call

  • Furnace heat exchangers mix combustion gases with house air when they leak—an important safety reason to have them inspected. Having carbon dioxide Detectors on every floor can help save lives

  • Adjusting the controls on the boiler or furnace can provide optimum efficiency and comfort. 

  • Proper operation of your heat pump will save energy. Do not turn the heat pump's thermostat down, if it causes the more expensive backup heating to come on  

  • A Heat Pump is efficient when running for long periods of time.
