How to Choose the Right Thermostat for Your Home
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Have you checked out the latest heating and air conditioning gadgets? Here’s what you need to know about choosing the right thermostat.

Heating and air conditioning equipment is continuously changing to improve homeowner experience. Today’s thermostats offer a variety of features and price points. Which one is best for you?

Programmable HVAC Options

Do you have regular working hours? Scheduling your heating and cooling around your habits and lifestyle is one of the easiest ways to save money over time. It’s easy to do when you have a programmable thermostat. Simply set temperature changes for once you leave and before you come home and you’ll use less energy the entire time you’re at work.

Predicting Temperature Changes

Some of the latest thermostats go beyond programming temperature changes. They track your regular use for several days and then predict what temperature you’ll want the house at particular times based on your habits. These systems can be basic or extremely complex with the ability to factor weather conditions into their algorithms.

Mobile Friendly Devices

For ultimate convenience and energy savings, you’ll want one of the latest thermostats you can control anywhere via a mobile device. These often have expanded user experience features which visualize the amount of energy used during the day. They may even provide suggestions for saving money.

Our technicians can match the latest advancements to your needs. Schedule a service call with G+S Heating Air Energy Services today if you need help upgrading your thermostat and other heating and air conditioning equipment. We will carefully assess your situation to help you come up with the best plan for a comfortable home without blowing your budget.

Why Is My AC Unit Blowing Out Hot Air?

HVAC troubleshooting helps you save time and money - and it’s easier than you think!

HVAC troubleshooting is an easy way to get your air conditioning system up and running without the help of a professional. Not only that, you’ll save money too! Here are the top reasons your air conditioner might be blowing hot air:

Restricted Airflow

Your AC needs adequate air pressure to move cool air around your home. Without it, the work can’t happen. The biggest culprits include:

  • Dirty air filters
  • Blocked air intake vents
  • Dirty coils
  • Blocked vents and registers
  • Grass and other debris blocking your outdoor unit

Most of these issues take a few minutes to clean out by hand, though some of them will require a professional. Make sure your system stays clear of debris by scheduling regular maintenance.

Frozen Compressor

Sometimes your unit freezes up and won’t run correctly. This usually occurs when there is a persistent airflow problem. Unfortunately, clearing things out might fix airflow, but your compressor is still an issue. The only solution is waiting several hours for components to thaw.

Electrical Problems

Is your outdoor unit running? Check your breakers to make sure it’s getting electricity. Can’t find one? Look for a single fuse somewhere near your inside unit. Sometimes they’re found screwed into light fixtures on a nearby wall or ceiling. If there isn’t a problem with the electricity and you can’t keep your outdoor unit running, it’s time to shut things down and call for emergency repairs.

Call G+S Heating Air Energy Services the next time HVAC troubleshooting doesn’t solve your air conditioning problems. We’ll get you back up and running in no time.

The Importance of Regular Air Filter Replacement

Replacing air filters is the number one thing you can do to keep your HVAC system running properly. And it is a regular part of our maintenance agreements.

Regular replacement of air filters is the number one way to keep your home or commercial HVAC system running smoothly. As part of our maintenance agreements , we can take the guesswork out of how and when to replace them. Here’s what you need to know.

How Often Should You Replace Air Filters?

30, 60, 90 Days, or More? It seems that the answer should be easy, but it actually depends on a variety of factors.

  • If you live in a climate where you use your system a lot – for both heating and air conditioning, then it needs replacing more frequently.
  • The number of people and pets who live in a home have a huge impact on how dirty the filter will get. Pet hair and dander can clog up a filter in no time at all.
  • The location of your home affects how dirty the filters get. Do you live on a farm or agricultural area where there is lots of dust in the air? Is your region windy? Is there construction going on nearby? Outside air gets into the house. If it is dirty, the dirt, grime, and debris get pulled into the air filter by the heating/cooling system.
  • If you have a fireplace that you use occasionally (or perhaps, often!) your filter will get dirty faster.
  • Family members who have allergies or respiratory illnesses require cleaner air to breathe easier and feel more comfortable. Keeping the filter clean will ensure the air quality of the house is better and safer for everyone.

Call G+S Heating Energy Air Services and speak to our friendly staff for more ideas on keeping your HVAC system running well and your air clean. Consider a maintenance agreement so that we can help you keep your home air quality safe and healthy for everyone.

4 Tips for Cooling a Commercial Building This Summer
Thursday, July 18, 2019

Commercial services can help you lower your building cooling costs this summer.

Are you connected with your commercial services teams? If not, you should be. According to an EPA study, the average commercial building wastes 30% of the energy it consumes. As a business owner, you see that reflected in higher monthly energy bills. Here are four tips on how regular maintenance by a commercial HVAC team can help you lower your summer cooling costs.

1. Install Programmable Thermostats

With programmable thermostats, you can automatically adjust the temperature to the needs of employees during working hours. At night, when the building is empty, increase the temperature by just a few degrees. This small change can save your business thousands of dollars in energy costs per year.

2. Incentives and Education

Most people today are energy conscious. Educate your employees on the benefits of turning off computers, printers, lights, and other devices when not in use. Show how this equipment really brings up the heat in the workplace. Perhaps provide an incentive to lower energy costs over the summer.

3. Audits and Upgrades

Conduct an energy audit by evaluating your heating and cooling costs and repairs over the past 12 months. Is your HVAC equipment outdated? Older units are not as efficient. Damage and wear & tear affect the output of both heating and cooling units. Consider upgrades as newer HVAC systems are much more energy efficient and may save you considerable money in a short time.

4. Regular Maintenance is Key

Regular service and maintenance are critical to the proper operation of commercial HVAC systems. Be sure to have your system maintained by a professional technician twice a year to prevent small, easy to fix problems from becoming costly repairs.

As a business owner, you want to keep your employees safe and comfortable while saving money. Call G+S Heating Air Energy Service today to find out how our commercial services can help you do just that.
