Installing, Repairing and Servicing HVAC Systems Since 1929
What Are The Different Types Of HVAC Systems?
The main types of systems are forced air, hydronic and steam boilers. Forced air is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Boilers on the other hand can either have radiators, or baseboard heating elements around the outside walls of the house. You also could have radiant in-floor heat. This is designed to heat up the floor your walking on and use it to radiate the heat into the space along with the objects that are sitting on the floor.
What Should You Look For In An HVAC Contractor?
When you’re choosing an HVAC contractor you should be looking for reviews and be sure to ask your friends and family who they use. Sites like Angie’s List and the like are not always accurate. You tend to see people that are just looking for an end result migrating to those places. Just having the lowest price doesn’t ensure quality, for example.
Look to see the confidence in the contractor or tech that is working on your problem. See that he has proper tools and just not using duct tape to hold things in place. Your HVAC contractor should be clean, respectful, qualified, and have an organized truck. You don’t want to spend thousands on a repair or on a new system for someone to simply just slap it in place and walk away. We call it commissioning a system. Once everything is installed and completed your system is started. Then we tweak things here and there – make adjustments to contour the system to work seamlessly in your home.
You can take the lowest grade equipment and make it look like a Ferrari if you know what you’re doing. But if you don’t that Ferrari might as well be a little Ford Tempo doing everything it can to try and operate. At the end of the day you spend money on these things with an end goal for it to make your money back and work for you, right? It would be a shame if that didn’t happen because you went with the lowest bidder.

How Often Should Your Service Your HVAC Systems?
Your system should be serviced every season. Furnace in the Fall and air condition in the late Spring or early Summer. The only exception is if it was replaced and is brand new for the up and coming season.
