Memorial Day

Monday, May 27th, 2013

During the final Monday of May every year, we commemorate those military personnel who have died in service to their country. Formerly known as Decoration Day, probably because of the way that graveyards were decorated with flowers, Memorial Day came to prominence in the wake of the American Civil War, which left the country war-torn, with many casualties on both sides. Since that time, it has been a day of remembering those who have given up the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

As you go about town on your day off from work, you’ll probably see an abundance of flags and flowers, as well as public commemorations such as parades. While this day has been turned into the last leg of a three-day weekend, it’s important to reflect on the way that our military personnel have shaped our country, and to remember their contribution to the way we live today. We wish you all the best on Memorial Day.

Springfield, OR Air Conditioning Repair Tip: How to Eliminate Hot Spots

Friday, May 24th, 2013

In order to live comfortably in your home throughout the hottest time of the year, it is important that you invest in a quality air conditioning system and that you schedule your air conditioning installation with a qualified professional. Even so, there is no way to guarantee that you will never experience problems with your air conditioner. One common issue that homeowners notice with the performance of their air conditioning system is the development of hot spots throughout their home. This can be quite frustrating. Here is some information from the Springfield, OR air conditioning repair technicians at Comfort Flow about how you can eliminate hot spots in your home.

One way to resolve this issue is with a zone control system installation in your home. With zone controlled cooling, you can distribute cooled air throughout your home with more control than ever before. A zone control system allows you to set temperatures in different zones of your home independently of one another. This means that, if there is an area in your home prone to warmer temperatures, you can boost the air conditioning level in there to help compensate for this issue. Contact us today to learn more.

Another very effective way to resolve problems with hot spots in your home is to schedule professional duct repair and duct sealing services. A very common cause of hot spots in a building is damaged ductwork. If there are leaks in your ductwork due to damages or improper sealing, the rooms supplied by that section of ductwork are not going to be as consistently comfortable as the rest of the house. Our duct sealing and repair technicians have the training and experience to pinpoint the source of any air duct troubles you may have. Once we have found the root cause of the problem we can go about resolving the issue.

Do not let hot spots in your home disrupt your comfort this cooling season. Contact Comfort Flow today to learn more. We have the services you need to get more out of your air conditioning system. Speak with one of our Springfield, OR air conditioning repair technicians today schedule service.

Salem, OR Air Conditioning Tip: How Duct Cleaning Can Help Your Air Conditioning System

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

A high quality air conditioning system is necessary if you hope to make it through the hot summer months comfortably. Of course, there are a number of different issues that your air conditioner may suffer from which can hinder its operation. The Salem, OR air conditioning experts at Comfort Flow Heating can help ensure that you are able to cool your home with the greatest efficiency and reliability possible. Contact us today to learn more. Here is some information about how scheduling professional duct cleaning service can help you improve your air conditioning experience.

While ductwork can be a great way to distribute heated and cooled air throughout your home, it is also possible for dirt, dander and other pollutants to build up within your air ducts. If your air ducts are improperly sealed, torn or otherwise compromised, you are at a greater risk for dirty air ducts. The professional duct cleaning technicians on our team can help resolve this problem.

Dirt and other pollutants in your air ducts can make their way into your air conditioning system itself. If such pollutants are allowed to build up on vital parts of your air conditioning equipment, such as your coils, the operation of your air conditioning system can suffer. These pollutants can also quickly build up on your air filter. When issues like this come up, your air conditioner will need to use more energy in order to cool your home. This raises energy costs for you and also puts unnecessary strain on your system. The more strain your system is under, the more likely damages and operational problems become.

Biological pollutants can also thrive in the cool, dark environment within your air ducts. When this happens, viruses, mold spores and other pollutants can circulate throughout your home, along with the conditioned air that is intended for distribution. Professional duct cleaning can help prevent your air conditioner from circulating undesirable substances throughout your home.

If you are interested in learning more about professional duct cleaning services, contact Comfort Flow Heating today. Our Salem, OR air conditioning technicians can answer any questions you may have. Call now for more information.

Salem OR Air Conditioning: Why is My Air Conditioner Leaking Water?

Monday, May 6th, 2013

Central air conditioning is one of the greatest luxuries that homeowners enjoy. As with any mechanical system, though, you are going to experience some problems with your air conditioner every now and then. It is important to remember that the best way to protect the condition of your air conditioning system is to schedule repair service as soon as you discover a problem. One common issue that homeowners may have with their air conditioning systems is leaking water. Call the Salem OR air conditioning experts at Comfort Flow Heating today if you notice a water leak in your AC system.

Frequently, what people mistake for a water leak in their central air conditioning system is actually just the result of a clogged condensate drain. As your air conditioner operates, it also dehumidifies air a bit. The moisture pulled from the air in the process has to go somewhere. That is why your central AC has a condensate drain. If this is backed up, water may begin to pool in the area. Changing your air filter will help keep this drainage line clear by keeping pollutants out of it. If your condensate drain is clogged, a technician on our team can resolve the issue.

Your air conditioning system is not a dehumidifier, remember, despite the fact that some dehumidification takes place during operation. If you have very high humidity levels in your home, you may want to consider the installation of a whole house dehumidifier. High humidity levels can lead to condensation in your home and this condensation may be behind what you think is an AC leak.

Of course, it is also very possible that your air conditioner actually is leaking water. If your drain hose or condensate pipe is broken, it can leak the water that it is draining into your home. Even small water leaks are a serious problem, and real damage can be done to your system and your home if it goes unresolved. Contact us today to learn more.

Don’t let a leaky air conditioner put the condition of your home at risk. Call the Salem, OR air conditioning repair technicians at Comfort Flow Heating as soon as you discover a problem with your system. We’ll have your AC working properly again in no time.
