Second Floor Is Too Hot

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
My Second Floor Is Too Hot! Is your second floor hotter than the others? Learn why and what you can do about it below! What Causes The Second Floor To Be So Hot? For many home owners, the second floor is too hot in warm weather. During the hot summers, you may notice that your second floor can become several degrees warmer than the first. You've tried cranking up the AC but that only makes the first floor too cold and the second floor remains the same. What is going on?  Hot Air Rises Thermodynamics states that hot air naturally rises, so essentially it would make sense that your second floor is warmer than the first. When you air conditioner is running, it has to work harder to get air to the second floor as cool air does not naturally flow in an upward direction. There are a couple different factors that determine how hard you air conditioner must work to cool your upper floors: How old your air conditioner is The total number of rooms in the home Your roof (yes, your roof) Duct work and insulation If you air conditioner is close to the end of it's lifespan, it will have to naturally work harder than newer AC's to cool the upper floors. Also, if you have many different rooms in your home, the air must be dispersed over a larger area, taking it longer too cool. Surprisingly, your roof can be a culprit in keeping your second floor...

Furnace Blowing Cold Air

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
If your furnace is blowing cold air, you may be wondering why or how to fix it. There are several possible causes of a furnace blowing cold air, so it can be hard to give advice without gathering further information. However, below are some common causes that will cause your furnace to blow cold air. Thermostat is set to ON position Is your thermostat set to the ON position instead of the AUTO position? If you have your thermostat set to ON, the blower in the furnace will blow air continuously even when the burners aren't warming the air, causing cool air to come out of your registers. By setting your thermostat to AUTO, the blower will only blow air when the furnace is heating. Some people choose to leave their thermostat on the ON position as it helps filter air throughout the house. Your furnace has overheated So your furnace was blowing warm air, then all of a sudden the air becomes cool for no reason. What's up with that? It is possible that your furnace has overheated. Your furnace has a safety mechanism built in that monitors temperature and will shut down when it becomes too hot to prevent a fire from starting inside your furnace. The most common cause of a furnace overheating is a dirty air filter. If your filter is dirty, not much air can pass through and in turn, your furnace will start to overheat. Don't ignore this problem. Repeatedly overheating your furnace will...

Advantages of Replacing Your Furnace & AC Together

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
Should I Replace My AC and Furnace at the Same Time? There are some great benefits to replacing both your old AC and furnace at the same time. Check it out! Did you know that the overall comfort of your home depends on your air conditioner and furnace working together year round? When the time comes to replace either your furnace or air conditioner, you should consider replacing both pieces of equipment together if they are older as you can actually save you both energy and money in the long term.  Ultimate Comfort Here are a few of the benefits of replacing your furnace and air conditioner together: Improved Energy Efficiency. Compared to older furnace and air conditioners, today's units are almost twice as efficient when it comes to energy. In the past, many air conditioners that were installed were just a measly 10 SEER (an energy efficiency rating for an air conditioner). Today's AC's and heat pumps can go up to over 19 SEER! The higher the SEER of the unit, the less overall energy it uses to run, which means more money back in your wallet come electric bill time. Today's furnaces have efficiency ratings that go all the way up to 98%, meaning 98% of the gas that comes into the unit is used to produce heat. Who wants to pay for gas they aren't even getting a benefit out of? No one. Mixing Technology Can Be Risky. Combining two different units can also cause a reduction in the...
