Is Your Ductwork Causing Problems?

February 5th, 2018

ductHere in California, heat pumps and central air conditioning systems are extremely common, as is the furnace. Do you know what these three HVAC systems have in common? They are all forced air systems, meaning that they all use air ducts in their operation. Do you know what that means? There are certain problems that such systems may encounter which may be caused by compromised ductwork. Do you know why that’s a problem? Well, just how much of your ductwork can you really see?

The answer is most likely “not much,” and that is the way that homeowners like it. After all, air ducts are not exactly ideal for interior decorating. The fact that so much of your ductwork is hidden from view, however, means that your ducts may be damaged or otherwise compromised without your knowledge. Because leaky ducts can be such a problem, it is important that you know some common signs of trouble to look out for.

January 8th, 2018

temperature-guage-just-rightFor many people, the mere mention of California conjures up images of beautiful, sunny coastline and warm temperatures. That may be a big part of the Golden State experience, but it is not the whole picture.

Investing in great equipment and scheduling routine heating maintenance is the best way to do this.

They’re mechanical systems, after all, and no mechanical system is perfect. It really is that straightforward.

Why Is My Heater Short Cycling?

December 25th, 2017

dog-under-blanketWhile not all homeowners are familiar with the term “short cycling,” many are nonetheless familiar with the symptoms of this condition. Short cycling is a problem in which a heater or an air conditioner starts up just fine, but then shuts back down in a rapid manner, only to restart and then shut back down once more. The cycle continues and continues—until, that is, the system can simply take no more! If your heater in Clovis, CA is short cycling this winter, the problem must be resolved ASAP.

There is some good news here, at least. Short cycling may be the result of a simple issue that you can resolve on your own. Unfortunately, it could also be the result of a much more serious problem posing a much more serious threat to your heating system. That is why it is so important that the issue is resolved at its core, and that you are not just treating the symptoms. Here are a few reasons why you may experience short cycling when trying to heat your home.

Is Your Heater in Trouble?

November 13th, 2017

chilly-manIt does not take much more than a quick glance outside to see that the summer weather is truly behind us for another season. There may not be any growing snowbanks in our area, but the days are a bit drearier and the chill in the air is palpable.

Is Your Heater Ready for Winter?

October 30th, 2017

servicing-furnaceWe certainly don’t have to deal with extreme winter weather in this part of the country, but it is nearly October, now, and cooler weather is definitely on the horizon.
