Operating as usual


Care to guess the most frequent, avoidable cause for a furnace service call? That would be blocked air flow from a dirty filter. For good furnace performance, clean or replace applicable filters regularly.


Did you realize that your fireplace chimney can cause furnace problems in your home? A leaky or open flue can draw warm air out of your heated rooms just the way it draws smoky air out of your fireplace.


There are a number of energy efficient ways to heat a home. One method is geothermal heating, where groundwater is circulated as a temperature medium to drive water source heat pumps.


While it may be possible to rig ducts or other parts of the equipment to "make them work," this is not usually a good approach because it could damage equipment or cause future problems.


Maintaining high occupancy levels in the buildings you own or manage is vital for profitability, and a poor heating system is something that contributes to high turnover rate and a poor reputation for quality services. Regular maintenance and quick service keep your tenants happy and the bills paid.


Heating systems can be classified as central or local. Central heating systems produce warm air at a single point and distribute it throughout your home. Local heating systems serve smaller spaces, and produce the heat where it is needed.


These energy resources power the furnaces in U.S. homes: Fifty percent of homes are heated with natural gas, 30 percent with electric heat, 7 percent with fuel oil, and the remaining 9 percent use other technologies like geothermal energy.


If you use gas or kerosene-fueled space heaters, there are two important things to keep in mind. First, make sure there is adequate ventilation when the heater is operating. Second, never go to sleep with a space heater left on.


People who are age 60 and older account for more than 50 percent. of hypothermia deaths, as the elderly are more susceptible to the cold. Having an adequate heating system is one of the best ways to reduce this statistic.


In water-to-air heating systems, one of the critical measurements is the thermal conductivity of the liquid, as it describes the heat transfer efficiency of the system. The lower the thermal conductivity, the greater the costs for generating heat.


Did you know that energy star certified heating systems not only save you money on heating bills, but they offer increased durability as well? Since they employ advanced technologies and high-quality components, equipment life is longer.


Did you know that somewhere between $130 and $180 million are lost each year in New York City because of incorrectly sized HVAC units? If the system doesn't fit properly, it wastes energy and is more expensive to operate.


If you're away from home for regular intervals throughout the week, consider installing a programmable thermostat. The pre-programmed settings on these thermostats can save you about $180/year in energy costs.


If you use a home testing kit to check for gas leaks in your furnace, a "negative" or "not found" reading does not mean a problem does not exist; it only means that a test was not positive. Have the system checked by a qualified service technician is the safest approach.


If you are purchasing an older home with a gas-fired furnace, have the system checked before you move in, especially if it is after the cold weather has gone. It will detect any problems that sometimes pop up between heating seasons, or if the house has not been lived in for a while.


Make sure the ducts that move the air to and from your forced air furnace or heat pump are properly sealed and insulated. This can improve the efficiency of your heating system by as much as 20%, or even more!


Around 1845, during the presidency of James K. Polk, The White House's furnace system was extended to include ducts built to heat the State Room and second floors. The State rooms, offices, and bedrooms got plaster-lined air ducts with silver, iron, or brass registers.


The most common type of home heating systems is the forced air system. In this system, the air is heated inside a furnace, and then distributed from that furnace through the ductwork and into the rooms by registers.


Forced-air heating systems are popular because of their fast heat delivery, reliability, versatility, and low installation costs. Often, the same duct system used for heating a home can also be utilized by a cooling system in the summer months.


If you have a structure that is unoccupied or that will be left unattended for an extended period during cold months, consider having heating boiler anti-freeze added to the system. It is a non-toxic liquid that prevents both freeze damage and mold build up.


If you're curious about how your neighbors heat their houses, more than half the homes in the U.S. are heated with natural gas. Electricity is next at around 30 percent, and then fuel oil at 7 percent. Nine percent of homes use "other" methods like geothermal heating, and 1 percent of U.S. households use no conventional heating at all.


With steam radiant heating systems, the heat is distributed with steam piping and radiator units. These systems may be fueled by natural gas, propane, oil, or electricity, and are often found to be advantageous over other systems because they are efficient and warm spaces rather quickly.


If you plan on being away from home for a few days, turn down your furnace and your water heater. If there's no threat that your pipes will freeze while you're gone, consider turning your furnace off completely. You'll save money without sacrificing comfort.


In order to ensure that your forced-air heating system is adequately heating your home, there are a couple of simple steps you can take. Adjust any registers or vents so the heat distribution is balanced, and make sure the blower is running at an optimal speed for your heating needs.


When dealing with an improperly installed or inadequate heating system, air flow can be a problem. One warning sign of inadequate air flow is when some heated rooms in your home are much warmer than others. Manually adjusting your vents can sometimes help.


The first glimmer at the modern HVAC system was in 1758, when John Hadley and Benjamin Franklin found that evaporating alcohol and similar substances cools down objects enough to freeze water. It was the first glimpse for a resolution to cold winters.


The ancient Romans used a central heating system known as a "hypocaust" in some of their buildings. The air was heated in furnaces, and then conducted through pipes in the wall and empty spaces under the floor.


One of the biggest ways to save energy in your home is to install a programmable thermostat on your heating system. You may not remember to turn down the heat at night, but your thermostat will. Small changes can add up to big bucks at the end of the year.


If you're going to be away from your home for an extended period of time during the winter, lower your thermostats down to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. This will save you money on heating and prevent your water pipes from freezing.


It is possible for baseboard and radiator heating systems to become airbound, and they need to be bled. Some signs of a system being airbound include gurgling or bubbling sounds, or heat not circulating through the system at all.


Annual maintenance of your forced-air heating system will ensure optimal performance year after year. Heat exchange surfaces and power blades need to be cleaned, while belt alignment and tension should be inspected and adjusted as needed.


Do you know the difference between a forced-air and gravity furnace? In a forced-air furnace, a fan forces the air through a duct system, where in a gravity furnace, the air is circulated by gravity, relying on the natural principle of heat rising.


Although it's tempting to get the least expensive equipment you can find, it isn't always cost effective. Getting the heating unit size that's right for your house will make it run most efficiently.


Geothermal heating systems work by taking advantage of the cooler (or warmer) temperatures underground. Buried pipes cycling refrigerant in a closed loop evacuate heat from your home in summer and carry heat into your home in winter.


It takes more than just inspecting the condition of your current equipment to determine if it's functioning properly. We must also check the air flow, position of windows and ducts.
