Monday, August 9th, 2021

You don’t normally want water leaking from any appliance or any part of your home. If you spot water starting to pool around the base of the indoor cabinet of your AC, you’re right to think that it’s abnormal. Your air conditioner creates water as part of how it operates—in fact, you can often hear the water dripping in it when it runs—but a central AC is designed to keep the water from getting into your house. When you notice water escaping from the AC, it’s usually a warning to call us for air conditioning repair in Conway, AR.

Can a Gas Furnace Become Dangerous?

Monday, March 8th, 2021

This is a question people often ask when they’re considering installing a gas furnace or if they already have one but have noticed odd behavior from it. We understand why people might have worries: natural gas combustion creates carbon monoxide (CO), a colorless, odorless, and highly toxic gas. Any use of natural gas in a home has some possibility of creating either CO or fire hazards. 

This is much different than saying a gas furnace is a “dangerous” appliance. We want to assure you that if you use a gas furnace in Conway, AR for your home comfort, you aren’t in serious danger from the furnace provided you take care of standard upkeep on it. This means annual heating maintenance from professionals and always calling promptly for repairs when something seems wrong with the furnace. 

The short version: Yes, a gas furnace can become dangerous, but it’s easy to keep it running safely.

Why Your Heat Pump Won’t Send Out Heated Air

Monday, February 22nd, 2021
blown-away

The point of getting a heat pump is so that your home can enjoy both heating and cooling from a single system. There is no reason to purchase a heat pump and only use it for one job—that’s a waste of money and potential!

Sometimes, however, your heat pump might end up wasting its potential all on its own. You set the thermostat to provide the house with a comfortable warm temperature on a cool day, and the heat pump turns on, you can hear the blower fan and feel the air coming from the vents … except the air from the vents is either room temperature air or cool air. What’s wrong? Does this call for heating repair in Conway, AR?

The Benefits of Radiant Heating for a House

Monday, February 8th, 2021

What is radiant heating? Not many homeowners are aware of what makes this type of heating different from the “standard” options found for home heating in Conway, AR. In this area, most homes rely on forced-air heating. If you’ve used a furnace (gas or electric) or a heat pump in the past to provide comfort to your house, you’ve experienced forced-air heating. These systems operate by heating up air and then using blower fans to push the air into the rooms of a house. 

Radiant heating doesn’t use a fan and doesn’t heat the air. What it does instead is raise the temperature of an object in a room, and then heat waves from that object radiate into the space and warm other objects they contact, without heating the air in between. This is the heat you’ll feel coming off asphalt on a sunny day, or from the heating elements in an electric range when it’s turned on.

How often do you think about the ductwork in your home? Unless you actually work in the HVAC industry or home construction, the answer is probably not that much. After all, residential ductwork is designed to hide out of sight in walls and up in the attic, and when you can’t see it you don’t think much about it.

But bad ductwork can turn into a problem for your household, and this winter you may find yourself facing leaking ducts that will make the season less enjoyable for several reasons.

Now that you’re running your furnace regularly for the colder weather of winter, you expect to get heat all around the house. That’s why you have a central furnace, after all!
