Every year at about this time, you probably receive several direct mail pieces from every different Cincinnati area heating and cooling company telling you to schedule a furnace tune-up or a coupon for one. But what many companies fail to tell you (and the reason most of those offers are ignored) is exactly why a furnace maintenance is essential.
Cold weather is coming, so it’s very important to think about scheduling your furnace inspection. An annual inspection ensures that your furnace will work when you need it and prevents costly emergency repairs and health risks in your home.
Having your furnace inspected or “tuned up” gives a technician an opportunity to check for possible issues and correct them before they turn into problems (or emergencies). Here are seven reasons why you should schedule your furnace inspection now.
1. If your A/C is not cooling enough, the easiest and most important thing you can do on your own is: check /change your filter. If this does not remedy the problem, Call for service. Note: there is a possibility that your A/C system may be doing all it can do during extreme heat conditions.
2. Air Conditioners must have a filter. The filter will be located inside your home either with the equipment or behind a grille inside your home perhaps a hallway. It is very important that the filter is changed or cleaned regularly in order to filter the air properly and prevent the indoor coil from getting dirty. 1″ filters=change every month; 2″ filters=change every 2 months; 4-5″ filters=change every 6-12 months. Filters will get dirtier faster if: there are multiple pets, there is a dusty outdoor environment such as dirt roads, fields, construction, etc; if carpets are infrequently vacuumed. We sell all types of filters and offer special savings on buying three. You can call the office to order yours at: (513) 777-7979. We recommend to keep them on hand to change. Continue reading

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

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
