Puron or Freon?

Your HVAC Team Explains Why A New AC System is Recommended

If you have Air Conditioner trouble that involves a Freon (R-22) leak, topping it up is a temporary and costly solution. Once a standard refrigerant for air conditioners, it is now being phased out due to environmental concerns. With manufacturing being reduced, prices of Freon have also skyrocketed.

However, before you panic or think of the worst, check for these signs which may throw some light on the problem:

  • Are you sensing distinct hot and cold spots throughout your home?
  • Do you hear any strange whistling sounds or find that some areas are very drafty?
  • When you check your vents, is there is no air coming from them even when the unit is “ON”?

If you are experiencing some of these signs, it may be nothing but an airflow problem.

Air Quality Action Day

What is an Air Quality Action Day?

Recently, here in Bucks County PA, we experienced several days of a level orange Air Quality Index (AQI) Alert.  AQI is used by government agencies to communicate to the public how polluted the air currently is or how polluted it is forecast to become over a specified period of time.  As the AQI rises, an increasingly large percentage of the population is likely to experience increased adverse health effects. Whole home air purifier systems can remove particulate matter and other hard-to-remove impurities such as dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mites and spores.

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.

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.
