Ductless Systems Can’t Be Installed By Amateurs!

Monday, August 6th, 2018

ductless-system-with-technicianIf you’ve heard anything about ductless mini split heat pumps, you may have heard that they’re simpler to install in a home than a standard central heat pump that uses ducts. This is true, but it’s not true that they are so simple to install that a non-professional can handle the work. Unfortunately, misinformation about ductless systems is common. People imagine they can save money if they tackle the installation work as a DIY project—but this is a mistake.

If you are interested in ductless heating and ductless air conditioning in Eugene, OR, we recommend you speak to our technicians first. They can help you make the choice about whether a ductless system is ideal for your specific home needs. If it is, they’ll see that you have a fast and accurate installation to ensure the ductless system you end up with does exactly the job it should.

Is Duct Cleaning Actually Beneficial?

Monday, May 14th, 2018

inside-air-ductIf you’ve looked around our website at the many residential services we offer our customers, you may have noticed that you can schedule duct cleaning in Eugene, OR, or elsewhere in our service area for your home’s ventilation system. A common reaction people have to seeing this service is to wonder if it’s useful at all.

We understand why homeowners may be skeptical. For one thing, ducts are out of sight—and that often means they’re out of mind. People rarely give much thought to what’s inside their ducts. There are also a number of non-professionals who offer duct cleaning at suspiciously low costs. “Suspiciously” is right: these aren’t real duct cleaning, only a quick vacuum job that doesn’t do much good.

Thorough duct cleaning from professionals using the finest equipment can provide a home with many benefits. Here are some of the ways regular duct cleaning (done every 3 to 5 years) with our pros is beneficial:

Is It Time for a New Commercial Boiler?

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

commercial-boilerDoes your commercial space use a boiler to provide comfort in winter, or to keep the building’s climate at a temperature necessary for work? If so, you can’t afford to allow the boiler to run and run until it finally breaks down on you one day and won’t come back on. To prevent this, make sure to keep an eye on its performance—and be sure the building manager knows to as well—so you can call our technicians to arrange for putting in a new boiler before the old one fails.

We’ll look a bit further into the indications that you’re coming near the point where repairs alone aren’t enough and it will be time for a replacement for your commercial boiler in Eugene, OR, or wherever you are in the state. Here are the major signs to watch for.

Why Isn’t One of the Units in My Ductless System Working?

Monday, March 5th, 2018

ductless-mini-split-on-wallThe ductless mini split has many terrific advantages for both homes and businesses: high energy efficiency, zone control, less dust and dirt blown out from ductwork, and flexibility for buildings both new and old.

One advantage that doesn’t often get brought up: because there are multiple air handlers—the small units placed in different rooms around the house—rather than the single one used in standard central air conditioning, if one of the air handlers fails to work, it won’t affect the others. A house or commercial building doesn’t have to lose all its heating or cooling; only one zone is affected.

Of course, there’s still a problem—a failed air handler! If you have an air handler that isn’t sending out heated/cooled air or isn’t turning on at all, you’ll definitely want that fixed. Here are some of the possible reasons for one of your ductless mini split indoor units to stop working:
