Ductless Heating and Cooling Can Save You Money—Here’s How

Monday, December 4th, 2023

How Your Ductwork Can Become Leaky

Monday, February 13th, 2023

You would never set sail on the ocean, or even a small river or lake, with a leaky boat. But plenty of homeowners are content to run their heating and cooling systems with leaky ducts. They often don’t realize that they have ducts with leaks, but even if they do know, they may shrug it off as not that big a deal.

Although leaky ducts won’t put your life at risk the way a leaky boat would, it’s still not a good situation. When ducts develop air leaks, they cause several problems for a home:

  • A rise in heating and cooling costs because of all the air that’s getting away
  • Poor comfort, with hot and cold spots appearing around the house and poor airflow from the vents
  • Dust and other unwanted particles getting into the the ductwork and then into the living spaces

The best way to counteract this problem is to arrange for professional duct sealing in Riverdale, GA with our team. We’ll use our training and the best tools available to make your ducts airtight once again.

Is Your Upper Floor Getting Too Hot When the Heater Is On?

Monday, December 19th, 2022

Heat rises. This is a basic scientific fact that most people learned in elementary school. It’s also a fact that can turn into a problem when you live in a two-story home. Heat moves through the floors to collect at the top of the building, creating too much warmth in second-floor rooms.

When you use a central heating system for your house, you expect the heater to provide an even distribution of warmth to all the rooms. But you may run into the problem of an overheated upper floor in your home when your heating system is running. You have the heater sending heat to both levels, and then heat from the lower floor rises to the upper floor, resulting in temperatures possibly too high for comfort.

Is this something you just have to “deal with”? Or are there solutions?
