What Is Geothermal HVAC?

When it comes to environmentally friendly HVAC systems, geothermal heat pumps are a promising and increasingly popular option. Baby boomer customers are attracted to the energy savings geothermal HVAC systems offer. Millennials consider going geothermal because it’s better for the planet. In fact, geothermal is expected to supply 10 to 20 percent of the world’s energy by 2050. Geothermal HVAC and power systems use Earth temperature for heat exchange. While some areas of the country experiences extreme climates, temperatures underground remain constant.

Geothermal heat pumps are considered a form of high efficiency heat pump. These systems rely on heat transfers between the air and the ground to provide heating and cooling to homes and buildings. Two other forms of geothermal systems are direct use geothermal and deep and enhanced geothermal. Direct use geothermal systems are common in regions with volcanic or tectonic activity that results in naturally heated groundwater. In these systems, hot water is pumped to use in its current state or in heat exchangers to condition the air in the building. Continue reading

Is a Humidifier Important?

YES! Especially in the winter. Here are just 7 important reasons why:

home humidifiers

In the warmer seasons, it’s not always the heat that gets intolerable, it’s the humidity! In the search for a comfortable indoor temperature, though, humidity is often the component which is neglected. The fact is, the amount of moisture in the air is just as important to the temperature as it is to your health. ALL year around.

Using a humidifier when it’s cold outside is not only one of the better ways to regulate your home’s temperature, it’s a great way to promote improved health for you and your family. It can even lend benefits to your house itself, as well as the plants, animals and humans that inhabitants. Consider these seven reasons when trying to decide if adding a humidifier is important for your home.

Why Change Your Furnace Filter?


by: Katey Gallagher

I will be the first to admit, that before I met my now husband (Chris Gallagher), I knew nothing about furnaces and air conditioners! I had my own home in Cincinnati and I couldn’t even tell you where my furnace was located! Now that I’ve been in the industry for years, I have a much better grasp of the ins-and-outs of heating and cooling a home. As service manager of our company, I work with our customers on a daily basis who have questions, similar to the ones I had before starting in this business. After hearing all these familiar questions, I felt like it would be helpful to share our knowledge with our customers. Hence why we started this video blog!

One of the comments I get a frequently is, “I didn’t realize I needed to change my filter that often”, and I believe it! I don’t think frequency of filter changing on your furnace or air handler is common knowledge. And I definitely don’t think people understand how much a dirty filter can negatively impact your heating AND cooling system’s operation all year around. Continue reading

Happy Boxing Day!

I’m married to a British woman so we “celebrate” Boxing Day. I’ve yet to google its origins but my friends and family in England usually sit around in their sweats and eat leftovers and play games. I figure this is a tradition worth keeping!

The term “Boxing Day”, for some reason, always reminded me of when my dad would bring home a furnace box or two and we’d make forts and castles out of them.

So it’s not quite the same but it brings to mind when my daughter was younger and got more fun out of the boxes than the gift within.

Ahh Christmas. Family, fun, food and warm wishes. Continue reading
