humidifier plantsFeel Cozy at Lower Thermostat Settings for Energy Savings

Many homes and businesses throughout the Bucks & Montgomery County area depend on home humidification systems to keep indoor air healthy and pleasant. Humidifiers keep moisture balanced to protect the home, improve air quality, and keep occupants feeling comfortable. There are many humidification products on the market, but not all are created equally.

  • Whole Home Humidifiers work with a building or residence’s heating and cooling systems to add needed moisture to the air as it circulates. They are installed between the supply and return air ducts, and work either with the HVAC system or independently to add moisture.
  • Portable Humidifiers are stand-alone appliances that add moisture directly into the air of the room they are situated in.

Bi-County Inc PineRun BridgeStep-By-Step Guide for the Change in Seasons

As the cool weather arrives in late October, it is probably time to switch off your air conditioner. Shutting it down correctly will help ensure it works properly next summer. Here is some important information to prevent unnecessary damage and costly repairs to your HVAC system.

Timely attention will enable your HVAC to work longer and more efficiently:

radiant floor heat finished basementRadiant Floor Heating is so comfortable because unlike traditional heating systems that just warm the air, radiant heating warms the floor and the objects in contact with the floor. The entire floor distributes a consistent, quiet and draft-free heating. It’s perfect for homes with vaulted ceilings or giant windows, which would otherwise waste heat.

Think about experiencing a comforting warmth on your tile, marble and wood floors instead of a chill with each step. Or, imagine walking into your bathroom and relishing in the coziness beneath your feet.

The beauty of radiant floor heating is you can choose to have it throughout your entire home or just one or two rooms and is compatible under any type of floor covering — carpet, wood, slate, tile, stone, laminate, and even concrete — making the design possibilities endless.

Indoor Air Quality Advice From Your HVAC Team

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, your indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Pet dander, dust, carpets, cooking, fumes from aerosols, outdoor pollutants like pollen coming in through the HVAC system, etc., will have an impact on the air quality and consequently, your health. Reactions may range from irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, to headaches, dizziness and fatigue, depending on age and pre-existing medical conditions. For individuals suffering from allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions, symptoms can tend to become aggravated. Whole home air purifiers aid in the removal of pollutants helping you breathe easier.

10 Reasons Your Air Conditioning Is Not Shutting Off…

BiCounty Inc Home Fuel Oil DeliveryAdvantages of a Full Service Oil Dealer:

When choosing an oil deliver service you have two main options: COD and Full Service.  COD oil companies only deliver oil – they fill your tank but they don’t provide any additional services. If your equipment breaks, they don’t have the know-how and training to make a repair. Many COD companies will say they have a relationship with a service provider if you encounter a problem. But in the middle of a winter storm, they often won’t have staff available to make a repair when you need it. It may take several days or even weeks to schedule an appointment.

Bi-County Inc is a Full Service provider dedicated to providing excellent service with every gallon of fuel oil we deliver. We provide you with automatic fuel delivery, price protection, preventive maintenance service plans, 24/7 emergency support – and peace of mind.
