|This section is designed to address
some common problems we encounter on service calls. We would not
recommend you service your own equipment, however, we will try
to touch on some common problems which may be easily solved, without
the need for a costly service call.
I never seem to get any heat in a room
on the third floor, why?
There are vent dampers located on the ductwork in your basement.
Adjusting these may improve airflow to areas of your home that
are not currently adequate.
My air conditioning only cools my main
floor, not upstairs, why?
This is a very common problem. Many contractors will tell
you that increasing the motor size and pulley in your furnace
will help. Not necessarily. Motor and pulley size increase will
not affect the air flow if your blower is to small, or plugged.
Newer furnaces have much stronger motors and blowers, which
are designed to move cold air more effectively.
My air conditioner does not seem to be
cooling. Maybe it needs Freon?
An air conditioner should not lose Freon if it was properly
installed. A dirty or plugged furnace filter can cause your
air conditioner to freeze up, or not provide any cooling whatsoever.
If your furnace filter is ok, then the system has to be tested
for leaks. Running your air conditioner when it's low on Freon
can damage your compressor.

Why do I need a humidifier?
Having a humidifier reduces the static in your home. It provides
moisture to the extremely dry air being distributed in your
home. Old drum style humidifiers collect calcium and hard water
deposits in a tray, while a drum and pad revolve slightly dipping
in to the tray. An alternative to this outdated style of unit
is a flow through model. A flow through humidifier does not
contain moving parts, and the water drains upon trickling through
a honeycomb filter. The benefits of this type of system compared
to the old style drum type humidifier, are immense.
