3 Winter Indoor Air Quality Tips from the Experts
Thursday, December 13, 2018
indoor air quality

Here are the troubleshooting tips you need to prevent indoor air quality issues this winter.

If your indoor air quality is sub-par, you could do some simple HVAC troubleshooting to solve the problem. Why? Because your heating system can have a direct impact on your air quality. Try these three troubleshooting tips from the experts that can have you breathing easier:

Tip #1: Check Your Air Filter

Your air filter is there to help catch particles that might damage your HVAC equipment. The bonus is that it also filters those same pollutants out of your indoor air. When your air filter is dirty or clogged, your heating system doesn’t work as well, and your indoor air won’t be as clean.

Tip #2: Check Your Service Schedule

Has your heating and cooling system been properly maintained? If not, that could be a reason your indoor air quality is not where it should be. Twice-yearly service will ensure your system is running as it should. It will maintain the moving parts, keep it clean, test and calibrate all of the systems, and make sure you don’t have any cracks in your ducts, any excess fuel or electrical use, or any issues with carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

Tip #3: Evaluate for an HVAC Upgrade

One of the best upgrade investments you can make for your HVAC is an air filtration system. A good one can filter out 99% of indoor airborne pollutants including dust, dust mites, pet dander, chemicals, smoke, mold, and mildew. Getting these contaminants out of your air is the best way to take care of your home and your health.

You don’t have to live with polluted air in your home. The experts at G+S have got your back with all of the information you need to troubleshoot your air quality. Contact us today!

2-Step Guide to Smart Heating
Thursday, December 06, 2018

Are you being smart with your heating and air conditioning?

Heating and air conditioning are essential, but are you being smart with how you use it? It’s easy to get into a routine and accept that’s how it is, but you can make some simple changes and get big results. Take a look at this handy two-step guide to smart heating and your home:

Step #1: Invest in a Smart Thermostat

A smart thermostat is a great way to make the most of your heating system this winter. Not only that, it can save you a bundle when it comes to your energy bills. Installing a smart thermostat allows you to more accurately control how and when you heat your home this winter.

The device’s user-friendly programming tools let you set your heat in any number of ways, so you only use it when you need it. You can program it to turn down at night when everyone is asleep and back up again before everyone gets up in the morning. You can put it in vacation mode when you’re away, or just adjust it to keep the pets and the plants happy during the day. The best thing about it is it will help you make smart choices about heating your home this winter.

Step #2: Have Your System Evaluated

How old is your heating system? If it’s coming up on the 10 to 15-year mark, it could be reaching the end of its useful life. Have a trustworthy HVAC technician take a look at the equipment and evaluate its performance. It might still have a few more years, but it might be smart to upgrade to a new HVAC system. You’ll save money on your energy bills in its increased efficiency, and your home will stay more consistently comfortable with a new system that is more effective than an older model.

It’s easy to keep your home warm this winter when you make good choices with your heating and air conditioning system. Let G+S Heating, Air and Energy Services help you make smart HVAC decisions by connecting with us today.

How to Find the Right Size HVAC System for Your Home

Maintenance agreements help curb the setbacks of the wrong sized HVAC unit.

Maintenance agreements help combat wear-and-tear and the effects of time, but they can also help you keep an eye on a poorly sized HVAC system. Choosing the most powerful unit for a home isn’t always the best solution. Mismatched equipment tends to suffer from problems throughout its life. While preventive visits will help manage these issues, it’s always best to start out with a heating and cooling system suited to your property. How do you select the right one? Keep reading for the pro tips to guide you.

Ask a Professional for Help

Many homeowners pride themselves on do-it-yourself repairs and remodeling. It’s a wonderful way to save money most of the time. When you’re purchasing a system that costs thousands of dollars it’s probably best to get the opinion of an expert. In fact, you should hire someone to install your new system if you don’t have professional training. Most persistent problems come from mistakes made in the first stages of HVAC replacement.

Consider Your Home’s Layout

So often, an independent HVAC retailer will advertise a unit perfect for a “two-story home” or other generic labels. They might have a calculator which recommends models based on the number of rooms or square feet on your property. These advertising methods create a false sense of preparedness.

An HVAC system might need customized solutions to control comfort throughout a home. Consider, for instance, a great room with a vaulted ceiling, or a large kitchen attached to a door leading outside. These spaces commonly suffer from drafts and condensation problems unless they’re prevented in advance.

Aim for Energy Efficiency

Some homeowners opt for lower-powered systems to save on energy costs. Unfortunately, this blows your bills out of the water, as your unit works harder and longer to keep your home comfortable. Instead, consider the latest Energy Star models for long-term savings.

Turn to our team of experts at G+S Heating Air and Energy Services to find the right sized HVAC system for your home. Once we help you choose a new system, be sure to check out our maintenance agreements to keep it in tip-top shape.

3 Benefits of a Fall Commercial Maintenance Visit
Thursday, November 22, 2018
commercial maintenance

What benefits do fall commercial services provide your HVAC system?

Hire the right business to perform HVAC commercial services to enjoy lower bills all winter long. How? By taking a chunk out of your biggest expense. Most business and homeowners underestimate how much of their energy costs come from heating and cooling -- up to 60 percent!

Here are three ways fall maintenance pays off:

1. Reduce Energy Use

As time goes on, your system collects dust, dirt, and other debris. It builds up in the air filter and on moving components, making it more difficult to control the temperature inside your business. The more resistance, the more energy a system needs to move air around. By changing your filter and cleaning your system, you lower resistance and the energy needed to run your HVAC unit.

2. Extend the Life of Your HVAC Equipment

Along with lessening the amount of energy needed to run your system, cleaning and changing the air filters reduces the physical stress on it. A well-maintained heat pump or furnace experiences less wear-and-tear. Your unit won’t need as many repairs to stay running and it will last for years longer than equipment that gets ignored.

3. Increase Comfort for Customers and Staff

Studies show a direct correlation between temperature, comfort, and productivity. Not only does comfort increase employee performance, but temperatures that are too high or too low contribute to illness-related absences. Customers also enjoy doing business in locations with suitable climate control, so investing in a well-running HVAC unit is an investment in your bottom line.
