Benefits of Duct Cleaning in Junction City

Monday, December 17th, 2012

When you use a forced air heating or air conditioning system in your Junction City home you depend on the air ducts throughout the house to disperse conditioned air. Whether you are aware of it or not, though, those same air ducts may be circulating more than just air throughout your home. Homeowners do not have the benefit of looking deep into their ductwork systems, but many might be surprised by what they find there. If you have any concerns about the conditions within your air ducts, contact Comfort Flow today. We can help you better understand the benefits of duct cleaning in Junction City.

Air ducts are a great way to evenly and efficiently disperse heated and cooled air throughout your home. A number of factors may lead to the accumulation of dirt and debris – or even the growth of biological pollutants such as viruses and mold – in your air ducts. When this happens, indoor air quality suffers. Your heating and air conditioning systems have filters to prevent this from happening, but problems can still develop. Because your air ducts disperse air throughout your entire home, they can also spread these pollutants. That can seriously reduce the quality of the air that you breathe.

Health benefits of duct cleaning are not the only reasons that you should consider the service, though. If enough pollutants accumulate in your ductwork the efficiency with which your ductwork circulates air can actually suffer as well. Airflow resistance can be increased, and the dirt and debris in your air ducts can easily accumulate on and within the heating and cooling equipment itself. This can cause your heating and cooling system to overwork itself and lead to damages. Keep your heating and air conditioning equipment operating properly and efficiently by taking advantage of the benefits of duct cleaning today.

For more information about the benefits of duct cleaning service in Junction City, contact Comfort flow. We have the answers to all your questions. Our team of professionals can help you and your family live healthier, more comfortable lives.

Eugene OR Heating FAQ: Is a Heat Pump More Efficient than a High-Efficiency Furnace?

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Are you thinking of heating your Eugene OR area home with a heat pump, or a high-efficiency furnace? Call the Eugene heating professionals at Comfort Flow if you aren’t sure what type of heating system works best in your home. We can go over the option upgrading your furnace to a high-efficiency model, or a heat pump.

First, we’ll send a technician to your home to test your current system for any performance issues. We can also check for home performance problems, such as improper insulation and sealing. Insulating and sealing will help with moisture control, as well as having proper ventilation. If you have any issues related to airflow due to improper ductwork design, you may want to consider a ductless mini split.

A heat pump can both heat and cool your home, so that is one advantage over a furnace. However, depending on the type of fuel available to your home, a natural gas furnace may be more cost-effective than installing an electric heat pump. Some heating contractor may suggest that you can get better efficiency by simply installing a new air handler for an older furnace, but this will not help if you have a single-stage furnace that is oversized and has below 80% AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency).

If you would like to know more about the pros and cons of each type of heater for you Eugene OR area home, call the heating experts at Comfort Flow! Contact Comfort Flow today!

Cottage Grove, OR Heating and Air Conditioning Tip: Choosing the Right Type of Ductless Mini Split

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

If you are considering a ductless mini split system for your Cottage Grove, OR home, there are a few things to keep in mind as you decide on the right model for your home. While they are a cost-effective choice for many homeowners, you may benefit from a different type of heating or air conditioning system.

Call Comfort Flow for all your ductless mini split needs. Here are a few things to keep in mind while selecting the right system for your home comfort needs.

Features to Look For

Size is an important factor because depending on the length of connecting pipes, you want to find a system that will allow the technician to install that the outdoor unit far enough away that you benefit from the quiet operation of these systems. There are some models that also feature a wall installation for the outside compressor. This is something you will want to consider if there’s limited space for the typical ground installation.

Indoor Design

The other great feature of ductless mini split systems is that they provide more flexibility in interior design options. You can install the indoor units on the ceiling, wall, or there are some that come in standing floor models. For wall and ceiling models, the system should come with a remote control to easily turn it on and off, but you’ll also have a thermostat for that air handler.

Zone Control and Thermostat Options

Because of the zone control that ductless systems give you, you will also need to decide how many units you want and choose the location for them.  There are many thermostat choices, including programmable and digital ones that are easy to use.

If you want to start saving energy and money, give the Cottage Grove OR heating and air conditioning experts at Comfort Flow a call any time.
