2014 is almost upon us, and with the coming of the New Year, we thought we’d take a brief look at some of the more popular traditions associated with this holiday. It’s been around for at least 4,000 years: as long as we’ve figured out how long it takes for the seasons to come and go. Here’s a quick discussion about some of

Heat pumps operate according to the same basic principles that air conditioners do: circulating refrigerant gas through a series of valves and coils to alternately heat and cool the air. The difference with a heat pump is that the process can basically be “reversed,” warming your indoor air in the winter while cooling it in the summer.
Getting the most efficiency from the heating in your home can involve a number of different factors. You can install a precision digital programmable thermostat, have regular maintenance done on your heater, schedule duct cleaning, or completely upgrade your heating system to a new one that uses less energy. All of these are good ideas to increase
If you keep your furnace in good repair—calling for professional service whenever you notice malfunctions and maintaining a regular schedule of preventive check-ups and tune-ups—it should serve you for many years with excellent warmth. However, no furnace will last forever. Eventually, it will begin to wear down and reach the point wher
Thanksgiving began in 1621, but didn’t become a national tradition until 1863, when Abraham Lincoln declared it as such in hopes of bringing a divided nation together. We have many Thanksgiving traditions in this country, from turkey as the meal to the annual Cowboys and Lions games on television. But one of the most beloved is the annual Pre
We haven’t yet reached the stage in HVAC technology where we can install artificial intelligences into furnaces so they will self-diagnose and immediately alert homeowners to their repair needs. However, furnaces do have ways of alerting people about impending problems, although you need a bit of knowledge to understand what these signals mea
Traditional furnaces have been a mainstay in Texas homes for many years, using a centralized system to distribute hot air through a series of ducts. They do their work simply and efficiently, but at the same time, they’re not the only options out there. Here in La Porte TX, heating replacement services can install multiple different types of

You need a heater in your home that will perform effectively and efficiently whenever you need it. But if you need to replac
Geothermal heat pumps—what’s the big deal? You’ve heard about them and perhaps know that their popularity has risen over the last decade. You might also know something about how they operate: using refrigerant that circulates through underground lines to move heat from the earth and place it into your home (or, during the summer,
It’s natural for heating replacement questions to arise whenever you face a significant repair. Our winters can get chilly, and a reliable heater is usually your best friend when the temperatures start to dip. You don’t necessarily need to wait for your heater to suffer a catastrophic failure in order to consider installing a new one. I
A stress that commercial HVAC systems have that most residential ones do not is that commercial systems usually operate continually during business hours to meet the needs of many people. Homeowners will usually adjust their systems throughout the day, occasionally shutting them off, but business owners rarely have that luxury. This constant use in
Geothermal systems serve as an attractive alternative to traditional gas or electric heaters. They draw upon the internal temperature of the ground itself, which stays fairly constant no matter how hot or cold the air above gets. That makes them very cost-effective, provided cheap heat for your home regardless of the weather outside. In towns like
Although Houston, TX usually experiences mild winters, temperatures averaging in the low 50s and mid-40s through February can still feel extremely uncomfortable without a properly functioning heater working to keep your home warm.

If you turn on your air conditioner and nothing happens, it could potentially mean you’re dealing with a rather serious issue.

Your air conditioner is a vital part of your home during the long, hot cooling season. Any problems with its operation can have a seriously negative impact on the comfort in your home.
