Boilers Are Our Specialty
Here in Portage, IN, a boiler is an excellent option for anyone looking for the ultimate in whole–home comfort. A boiler uses hot water to heat up a home, and this transfer’s heat to a space much better than a whole–home forced air system, like a furnace. Call a technician to learn more about how to get a boiler in your home, to schedule maintenance, or for prompt repairs.
Learn about Gas Furnaces
Gas furnaces take in air from your home, and use combustion to transfer heat to a heat exchanger so that it can transfer to the air moving past it. The blower fan then moves the air to the ductwork, where it finally goes to the rooms of your home. Of course, it’s not this simple, and there are many ignition components, safety switches, and electrical parts helping it run. Learn more about gas and electric furnaces from our technicians.
Thermostats Improve Efficiency
It may seem like all thermostats manufactured today are alike, but this simply is not true. Some thermostats have advanced programming controls that let you plan out each day differently from the next. Then there are smart thermostats you can operate from a phone. This means you may not forget to turn off your air conditioner or heater before you leave–and when you do, you can just open up an app and change the temperature.
A Range of Air Conditioning Options
We install air conditioners of all shapes and sizes, from small ductless units for only one room up to commercial air conditioning, 25 tons and under. Our options for central AC include the conventional split system. You can also get a heat pump, which provides both heating and cooling. A ductless mini split system uses blower units rather than ducts to move air into a room. And a geothermal system saves lots of money by using the heat energy of the earth as a source of renewable energy.
Indoor Air Quality Improvements Help You in Big Ways
The key to your comfort and health may have to do with improving the quality of the air you breathe day in and day out. Temperature isn’t everything when it comes to air quality. Often, you have to change humidity and particle levels to really make a difference in how you feel. Our installations include air purifiers, air filtration systems, and UV systems to get contaminants out of your HVAC system. We also offer humidifiers to solve dry air issues, and heat recovery ventilators to let in some fresh air. We install and service smoke detectors and CO detectors as well.
Do You Have Enough Duct Insulation?
It’s tough to tell. You can’t exactly open up your ducts to find out (without the proper tools), and you may not know what to look for anyway. Many homes in Portage can benefit from an increase in duct insulation, but you’ll need to talk to a professional to find out if you fit into this category. Proper duct insulation keeps HVAC systems operating smoothly and efficiently.
Considering a Humidifier?
It’s a great choice for nearly any home in the area. A quality whole–home humidifier helps to inject enough moisture back into the air to keep everyone in the home more comfortable when the dry winter air is too much to handle. It works with your heater rather than injecting the water vapor into a smaller space, as a portable humidifier does.
Our Expert Services for Water Heaters
A water heater is a home comfort system just like any heating and air conditioning system, and it requires professional service too. Our home comfort specialists work with both tank and tankless water heaters, whether yours runs on gas or electric. We can show up quickly for a water heater repair, maintain a water heater for better efficiency and performance, or provide a replacement if this is the best step to take. Let us take care of the hard work. Call our team today!
Commercial HVAC Is Not Simple to Fix
A commercial HVAC system is larger and more complex than a residential HVAC system, so you need technicians experienced specifically with this type of work. When something goes wrong with a commercial heater, air conditioner, or indoor air quality component (such as a humidifier), count on us to do the work. We’ve trained our NATE–certified technicians on the latest techniques and systems 25 tons and under. We can make the job seem easy–even though it’s not!
