Taking proper care of your HVAC system is essential to maintaining a high efficiency and a long life-span. There are a variety of bad habits that homeowners can unintentionally have in regards to their HVAC system. These common mistakes can add up over times if you’re not careful, so be sure to consistently take proper care of your HVAC systems and contact a professional if additional help is needed.

Not Changing Your Filter: There are a variety of issues that stem from not changing your filter, inefficiency and rising energy bills among them. Most homeowners are unaware that the air filter for the HVAC system should be replaced around once every other month, depending on usage. If your filter is not replaced, it can become clogged with dirt, dust, and debris. A clogged air filter can even damage essential parts of your HVAC unit, which can result in costly fixes.

No Regular Maintenance: Forgoing regular maintenance on your HVAC system may seem like an easy way to cut costs, but the damage of doing so can quickly add up over time. Catching any issues with your unit early can help prevent long-lasting damage, as well as ensure that your unit is running at maximum efficiency. Scheduling a regular maintenance inspection with a professional can guarantee that any and all HVAC system problems are dealt with before the issue gets worse.

DIY Repairs: While some repairs and regular maintenance can be completed DIY, many of the more intricate procedures should be left to a professional. Accidentally damaging part of the machine during your attempts to fix a small problem can actually end up doing more harm than good. Rather than risk costly mistakes by trying to solve issues on your own, trust a team of certified HVAC technicians to handle the challenging problems.

Blocking Airflow: Proper airflow is one of the most important things that your HVAC system requires in order to function efficiently. If this airflow is blocked, multiple issues can arise. Many homeowners are tempted to hide their outdoor HVAC units with plants and shrubs in order to boost curb appeal. However, placing plants too near the unit can disrupt the ventilation. Plants could also become a home for pests and rodents, which can damage the unit as well. Air flow can also be blocked by furniture, not just foliage, so be sure to keep any lawn chairs or other items away from your system.

By avoiding these common HVAC bad habits, you can seriously extend the lifespan of your HVAC system as well as improve system efficiency. Providing proper maintenance at all times is essential to ensuring a well-working HVAC unit. And remember, if there’s ever an issue with your HVAC system, don’t attempt to fix the situation all on your own —call a HVAC professional who can quickly and affordably solve the issue!

The summer months can put a serous strain on your HVAC system. As the temperatures rise, so does the usage of your system, especially the air conditioning and dehumidifying units. In order to ensure that your HVAC system will run efficiently throughout the hot summer months, there are a variety of simple maintenance tips that can help keep your units running smoothly. Before the summer season gets too sweltering, make sure that you’ve completed all of these basic steps —either on your own or with the assistance of a HVAC professional— in order to best enjoy your property in the summer.

Upgrade the Thermostat: Purchasing a state-of-the-art thermostat can go a long way to cutting energy costs and keeping your home at an enjoyable temperature. While many models already have programmable thermostats that can schedule periods of lower and higher temperatures, newer models have wifi-access capabilities. These models can be accessed through any device with connection to the internet in order to lower or raise your home’s temperature. This feature can help you raise the temperature during the workday when no one is home in order to save on energy. It can also help your set the temperature cooler before your commute home so that your property is properly chilled by the time you arrive.

Replace the Air Filter: Air filters for cooling systems generally should be replaced every 1 to 3 months depending on usage. Before entering the summer season, be sure that your air filter is clean. A dirty air filter can cause a variety of issues, such as uneven cooling, allergen buildup, damage to the system, and reduced efficiency.

Clean and Check the Condenser Unit: Your property’s condenser unit is essential to keeping your home cool during the hot summer months. It removes the hot air inside of your home and releases it outdoors. Since the unit is located outside, it can easily become damaged by the outdoor elements. Airflow is essential to efficiency for a condenser unit, so clear the unit of any accumulated debris, such as leaves, sticks, and dirt. Be sure to check the condenser unit fan as well in order to ensure that it is working properly before the summer starts.

Dry out the Dehumidifier: Depending on the region that you live, a dehumidifier can be essential during the humid summer season. Dry out your dehumidifier before usage in order to ensure that there are no issues when you need it the most. Remove the outer casing on your unit to let any moisture evaporate, then clean the unit of any dirt or debris once it dries.

By simply taking a few, easy steps to properly maintain your HVAC system, your summer can become undeniably more enjoyable. You don’t even have to break a sweat by following these summer HAVC maintenance tips. Contact a trained HVAC professional if you require any assistance in order to ensure that your property is truly prepared for the heat of the summer months.

The air quality of your home is undeniably important, especially since poor air quality can cause harmful effects to the health of you and your family. The good news is that there are a variety of different preventative steps and maintenance which can help cut down on the negative particles in the air. Here are just a few of the most helpful ways how you can get better indoor air quality in your home.

Change Your Air Filters: All filters, especially AC filters, should be routinely changed in order to ensure that proper air filtration is occurring at all times in your home. AC filters are the most important filters to check, as they continuously filter all of the air that circulates throughout an area while cooling. Other filters to check include vacuum cleaners, clothes dryers, and kitchen vents.

Check Air Ducts: Dust, mold, and dander can build up in your air ducts overtime. As these air ducts circulate hot and cold throughout your home, the presence of these harmful particles can be circulated as well if not properly cleaned. These accumulations can decrease the air quality in your harm and cause health issues over time.

Kitchen Vents: During cooking, harmful air pollutants can quickly accumulate. These pollutants can include carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide, both of which can negatively affect a person’s health. Ovens generally release high amounts of these particles, but even electric burners can release them as well. Therefore, as you cook, be sure to use the cooking vents. If you do not have them, then try to keep a window open while cooking if possible.

Control Humidity: Mold and mildew are just a few of the dangerous, particle-releasing pollutants that decrease air quality in a home. Moist conditions caused by high humidity can increase the growth of molds and mildews. They can release irritants which cause not only respiratory issues, but also other health issues, such as headaches, as well. Keeping the humidity low will limit the amount of these harmful molds and mildews in your home, therefore improving air quality.

Buy Plants: Buying indoor plants is a natural option to effectively filter harmful particles out of the air. Plants not only convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, which is then released back into the house, but they can also pull other pollutants out of the air. Plants can improve the interior design of your home as well, and there are a variety of different plant types you can buy based off of your personal preference. With nothing more than some soil, sun exposure, and watering, plants are simple to maintain and undeniably beneficial.

Maintaining the levels of harmful particles in your home is an essential part of home maintenance. Luckily, these easy steps can make a huge impact on improving the breathability and air quality in your house. Make sure that you are actively completing all of the updates and replacements necessary in order to get better indoor air quality in your home. If you need professional help, Debord’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning can perform a thorough inspection of your home’s ventilation and air intake sources. In order to optimize indoor air quality, the best possible level of ventilation must be ascertained for your home and then established.

Indoor air quality is important to maintain so that you and your family do not experience negative health effects from harmful pollutants, and also that your home is free from particles. There are a variety of different ways that air quality in your home can be improved, such as checking air ducts and buying plants, but one simple way is to use an air purifier. Air purifiers effectively filter our harmful pollutants in your home and release clean air back into the space.

Asthma: For those who suffer from asthma, many of the particles that collect inside the home can be extremely triggering.  Some of these harmful particles include dirt, dust, mold spores, and irritating perfumes, just to name a few. If these pollutants are allowed to linger in the air, they can start an asthma attack or simply cause a variety of asthma-like symptoms, such as wheezing. An air purifier easily filters many of these airborne particles in order to significantly improve the indoor air quality of your home. 

Allergens: Allergens come in a variety of forms, such as dust, pollen, or pet odor; no matter the form, no homeowner wants to have harmful allergens lingering in their home. Air purifiers can reduce the amount of allergens present in your home’s air, making an allergic attack far less likely. This preventative filtering is essential at keeping you and your family healthy at all times.

Second-hand Smoke: Breathing in second-hand smoke has been known to cause a staggering amount of health defects, especially for developing children. If you or any member of your family smokes, then using an air purifier is absolutely necessary in order to keep the harmful toxins and particles out of the air.

Asbestos Particles: Asbestos is a highly harmful particle that was once used in many products due to its durability and heat-resistance. However, it has since been proven highly harmful to people’s bodies, especially their lungs. Older homes especially can have insulation, ceilings, and floor tiles constructed with asbestos. It is necessary to remove these materials from your house; when doing so, be sure to use an air purifier in order to trap and filter all of the harmful particles and ensure the safety of your family.

Air purifiers have a variety of uses and benefits around the home. It is an essential product for people with different health sensitivities, such as asthma or allergies, as well as a general preemptive layer of protection against oncoming issues for the rest of your family. Proper air circulation and filtration of particles is essential. The benefits of an air purifier are countless, so invest in one for your home today.

To keep your Air Conditioner up and running at optimal performance, routine maintenance is required to ensure your machine is operating efficiently. Preventative maintenance on your AC will not only save you time and money, but it can also save you from the agony of being without cooling during a time when you need it most. Check out these top Air Conditioner maintenance tips:

CLEANING

One simple way to keep your unit properly maintained is to clean the machine. One way to do so is to vacuum the fins of your unit. To clean your unit, gently use a soft-bristle brush attachment to your vacuum, as these pieces can be easily be bent or damaged.

IN-LINE DUCT BOOSTER

Adding an in-line duct booster can do wonders in maintaining your air conditioner. Booster fans help account for rooms that run hotter than the rest of your house. The booster increases the airflow to that specific room and gives it extra coolness. Therefore, rather than increasing the energy expended to cool down the whole house, the in-line duct booster diverts energy to the room that requires it most.

FIX FINS

As mentioned previously, the fins of the AC unit are extremely fragile and can become easily bent or crushed. To fix this, simply take a dinner knife to your unit and realign the misshapen pieces. Be careful not to press too deeply into your machine’s fins. Realigning these pieces can help return your AC unit to tip-top shape.

REPLACE THE FILTER

Particles and pollens —among other unsavory things– get filtered through your AC units. Once these filters get too dirty, they no longer work as effectively and needs to be replaced. Replacing the furnace filter after the dirt has built up too much is an easy task; simply power down the unit and exchange the dirty filter for a new one.

UNCLOG DRAIN TUBE

A clogged drain tube can create slime, and the condensed moisture can impact your unit’s performance. If you notice water leaking around your AC unit when it is running, that is one tell-tale sign that your drain tube is clogged. Luckily, fixing a clogged drain tube is simple —you can easily insert pan tablets into the tube once a month to keep the piping clear. These tablets can be purchased at nearly any major home center or plumbing supply store. 

INSULATION

One of the final air conditioner maintenance tips is to check the insulation on your AC unit. Insulation that keeps the energy contained, rather than loose insulation which can leak both energy and money, is essential in having a properly maintained machine. To replace rotted insulation, all you have to do is remove the old insulation, seal down the ends of the exposed tubes with insulating tape, and then cut the new insulation foam to the length of tubing.

These are some things you can do to properly maintain your air conditioning unit. If you’re unsure and want to get help from an expert, call the professional HVAC technicians at Debord’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning. Our experts understand the importance of accurate air conditioning service, and we pledge to offer reliable maintenance and repair work on every job.

Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems offer a multitude of different benefits and advantages when compared to other methods of keeping your house at its proper temperature. Making the switch from a traditional ducted system to a Ductless HVAC system will improve your home and your life in a variety of ways, from saving you money to better filtering of air inside your home. Once you make the switch, you’ll never think of going back.

MONEY

One of the biggest draws to a Ductless HVAC system is the amount of money you can save annually after switching. Since Ductless HVAC systems operate efficiently, using less power than traditional units to moderate your home’s temperature, it saves on cash fast. Outside of the money saved on paying high utility bills, having a Ductless HVAC system can also qualify homeowners for tax credits or utility rebates. Overall, that saves owners a ton of money in the long run.

AIR QUALITY

Using a Ductless HVAC system can improve the overall air quality of your house when compared to a traditional unit with ducts, as the ducts need to be properly cleaned and maintained. A dirty duct makes dirty air. Using a Ductless HVAC can reduce the amount of pollen, dust, and other harmful particles in the air drastically. The last thing you want to be worried about in your own home is the quality of the air you are breathing in.

EASE OF INSTALLMENT

It might seem unreliable, but a Ductless HVAC system can be installed completely in as little as one day. Compare that to a ducted system, which can take up to several weeks to install, and the difference is clear. Mini-split systems, a type of Ductless HVAC, are especially non-invasive and can be installed without any signifying change in structure to your home. In the more extreme seasons, such as deep winter or the middle of summer, any moment without proper heating and cooling can feel unbearable. With a Ductless HVAC system, there’s no need to worry about a drawn-out installation period.

GREEN ENERGY

If you’re concerned about the carbon footprint your house is leaving and are looking for ways to alleviate the output in your everyday life, look no further than installing a Ductless HVAC system. These heating and cooling systems operate under ENERGY STAR guidelines and use a zoning system that efficiently contains the energy to a single, designated area. This improved efficiency not only saves you money on your energy bills but also has the added benefit of exerting less carbon to the environment.

When deciding upon upgrades to your home’s heating and cooling systems, Ductless HVAC is a choice that offers multiple benefits to both your budget and your house. These four advantages are merely a few of the many positive effects of getting one. If you want to make an upgrade to a ductless HVAC system, make sure to contact only your trusted HVAC contractor to make sure that the installation will be done right the first time.

Air conditioning is the process of removing heat and moisture from the interior of an occupied space. It is common in the US, with 88% of new single-family homes constructed in 2011 including air conditioning, ranging from 99% in the South to 62% in the West. It has both domestic and commercial benefits.

Aside from keeping you cool, what other benefits does it offer?

1. Comfort – An air conditioner indeed provides a more comfortable interior environment for your home or business area. This is especially true during hot summer days. It keeps the air cool, refreshing, and comfortable.
2. Better Sleep – There are many ways for better sleep and one of these is having a cool comfortable environment conducive for rest after a tiring day. One’s core body temperature is also a critical factor in getting to and staying asleep. A too hot (or too cold) room interferes with natural temperature regulation which doctors say functions best at between 65 and 75 degrees. Air conditioning does help achieve the perfect temperature that will put you to sleep in no time.
3. Better Work Performance – Work is done more efficiently in a comfortable cool environment. Air conditioning can improve employee comfort making them more focused on the tasks at hand.
4. Reduces Risk Of Dehydration or Heat Stroke – Dehydration due to insensible water loss, most especially during summer, is a problem that can be solved through hydration and a cool environment with the use of an air conditioner. Hundreds of people have died from heatstroke. An Environmental Protection Agency study of heat-related deaths found that more than 9,000 Americans died from the heat between 1979 and 2013. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that, “air conditioning is the number one protective factor against heat-related illness and death.”
5. Asthma control – A 2011 study showed the benefits of central air conditioning on asthma. Air conditioners can reduce airborne triggers but only if filters are properly maintained. This would include dust mites, animal dander, pollen, and mold spores. They also work great for filtering non-allergic asthma triggers, such as smoke from wood fires, smoke from cigarettes, and various forms of air pollutants.
6. Fewer insects – The filters of your air conditioner also keep out insects and are more effective than a screen in an open window. This is beneficial especially to those with known allergies to insects.
7. A More Secure Home – Having air conditioners in our home will mean we keep our windows and doors closed. This also means more security for your home or building. After all, we all want to keep our loved ones and valuables protected from the hostile side of humankind.

All the mentioned benefits will NOT be achieved if your air conditioner is NOT efficient! Better contact Debord’s One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning at 440-286-6002 for a more comfortable, safe, secure, and healthier home space.

You may notice that some places in your home have cold spots and hot spots, even if you use a good air conditioning system. This happens because of some problems with your air conditioning system or the way your system is positioned in the room.

Let’s discuss some common causes of uneven Hotspots in an air-conditioned room.

  • Thermostat Location – The thermostat location is important. Placing your thermostat in the right place has a significant influence on the efficiency of your HVAC system and its ability to keep your desired home temperature. If your thermostat is located in an area of your home that is exposed to direct sunlight or other heat sources, then it will impact the entire air conditioning system. It regularly checks the temperature in order to know how much cool or warm air to deliver to achieve the desired temperature. This means that direct exposure to heat or cold would be resulting in an incorrect reading, which may lead to bad air conditioning experience.
  • Air Leaks – No matter how efficient your air conditioner is, the cool air will leak out of the house if you don’t have it properly sealed. This will not only cause an uneven temperature in your house but and you will also end up with higher electricity bills. Check for gaps and cracks around windows and doors seal it properly.
  • Duct Leaks – If there is a problem with duct, then you may experience uneven hot or cold spots in your home. If your ductwork has any cracks or openings, warm air will leak out before it gets to its destination.
  • HVAC Size is Wrong – Your air conditioning needs to be appropriately sized to provide enough heating or cooling to your home. The perfect size means that it needs to have enough capacity.
  • Blocked or Closed Air Vents – This is one of the most common causes of an uneven temperature. If any of your vents are closed or blocked, the rooms where those vents are located will not receive enough cold air and your home’s temperatures will feel uneven.
  • Dirty Air Filter – Dirty air filters result in reduced airflow to your home. Less airflow means that it will take longer for the temperature in your home to regulate. Generally, it is recommended to change a disposable filter or cleaning the air filters every 1-3 months.

In order to maximize the comfort of your AC, make sure that your system is properly maintained. If you experience uneven temperature spots in your home, don’t hesitate to contact a trusted HVAC Contractor to get it resolved in no time!

HVAC Systems make our lives easy and comfortable with heating, cooling and controlling of humidity features throughout the year. HVAC systems are costly investments and if they are not maintained properly, they may not last long. There are also many other reasons why HVAC systems should be maintained properly regularly:

1.    Healthy and Hygienic Air Flow

When an HVAC system is maintained regularly, it gives out proper and clean air to the entire family. HVAC systems are not only good at providing cool or hot air to the room but also control the quality of the air with the help of the filters, coils, and additional disinfecting technology such as UV or HEPA. If the filters and coils are unclean, air quality may be affected.

2.   Increased Efficiency and Effectiveness of the System

When an HVAC system is flushed and cleaned properly on a yearly or 6-months basis, it works with greater efficiency. Unmaintained and unclean HVAC systems push themselves harder than clean systems to heat or cool your home, reducing their lifespan and increasing your utility bills due to higher energy use.

3.   Fewer Emergency Repairs

Just imagine how uncomfortable would it be when you have to sleep without heat during a wintry night? When the HVAC system is fully maintained, you are significantly less likely to need to make any emergency repairs or spend uncomfortable nights either quivering in the blankets or sweating with the windows open during a summery night.

4.   Lower Electricity Bill

When you have an HVAC system that functions properly and produces heat or cooling appropriately using the right amount of energy, it costs you less on the electricity bills as it does not have to work as hard to produce the heating or cooling.

HVAC Maintenance has a lot of advantages that will save you time and money. If you’re looking for an HVAC expert to help you with maintenance, call Debord’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning today.

When the weather gets utterly cold, you are left to depend on your furnace to keep your home comfortable, relaxed, and cozy. However, your furnace can sustain damage while it’s turned off for the remainder of the year.

As soon as the issue is spotted, consultation with a professional and any necessary repairs should be scheduled. Here, we have enumerated several signs that will alert you to needing furnace repairs:

1.    Odd Furnace Smells

Furnaces can produce a smell of their fuel source especially when the furnace is turned on for the first time in a year’s duration. Mostly, the odors dissipate within a short period. If furnace odors persist, there is an issue with your furnace.

2.    Difficulty in Turning On the Unit

If you find it difficult to turn on the unit, you are most likely experiencing an issue that needs to be repaired. You should not delay and risk running without heat on cold days; schedule the repairs and solve these issues for proper function.

3.    Variant Color of the Pilot Light

You should concentrate on the color of the pilot light – whether it is the healthy blue light or not. If you spot a pilot light of a yellow color or any other color, there is a ventilation problem that needs to be repaired.

4.    Insufficient Heat Produced by the Furnace

When the furnace is not producing heat or is only producing low heat – repairs must be scheduled to correct the problem.

5.    Loud and Large Noise

No furnace can ever remain totally silent, but loud and consistent noises can indicate a problem that may be serious. Repair this irritating problem as soon as you can to avoid troublesome breakdowns.

6.    Substandard Air-Quality

Your furnace system has a direct impact on the air quality of the house. A poor furnace will bring about respiratory ailments causing coughs, colds, fevers, etc. If you get any of these symptoms more frequently, your furnace may need attention.

7.    Tripping of Carbon Monoxide Detectors

If you have alarms that detect carbon monoxide, you must turn off the furnace as soon as you can and open the windows to send it out of your house. Carbon monoxide is poisonous and can result in sickness or death depending on levels of exposure.

When your furnace stops functioning properly, you’ll want an experienced professional to help make sure the problem doesn’t get worse. In Northeast Ohio, you can call Debord’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning to help you
