RESIDENTIAL HVAC: Forward Thinking of Maintaining The HVAC System Will Conserve Your Unit

Darren Kincaid - Tuesday, September 29, 2020
Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VA

It is better to understand how a residential heating and cooling system works. In this way, it is easier and faster to troubleshoot HVAC problems when the need arises. No need to panic and worry as you are guided by your little information on how to resolve the problem hence you will easily inform the technician of the problem incurred and immediately it will be resolved in just a short span of time.

If you have a faulty HVAC system in your home or there is one unit nearing the end of its life surely you will be paying more cost. It is for the reason that an old and malfunctioning AC consumes more energy than the normal working AC unit. Air conditioners require maintenance from a knowledgeable technician and from there it will be detected when you need to replace the entire system or maybe one of its components. Just one component or even a damaged filter will add much to your energy bills. Therefore, it is more advantageous if you take care of your AC unit in order to save repair costs and energy bills. In any case just brief information to know an average HVAC that is well-maintained and regularly tuned-up will last for years depending on the type of air conditioners you are using. It is because there are some air conditioners that last for decades.

Most air conditioners require maintenance and regular tune-up because taking it granted or if it is not well-maintained it will lead to the breakdown of the unit within its first few years. And one of the biggest mistakes you will make with your air conditioners is not having it serviced at least once a year. Also, bear in mind that air conditioners installed the wrong way have shortened service lives. Thus if you are not sure of the installation, it is best to call an HVAC contractor to inspect the unit in order to determine potential troubles and hazards.

Save On Your Hot Water Supply with Tankless Water Heaters

Darren Kincaid - Monday, July 27, 2020
Central Plumbing and Heating

Tankless water heaters, commonly known as demand-type or instantaneous water heaters, provide hot water only when needed. In this type of water heater, there are no standby energy losses which helps you lower your energy consumption.

Demand-type water heater lets you heat water directly minus the need for a storage tank. When you switch on the hot water tap, the cold water moves through a pipe towards the unit. The water is heated by a gas burner or an electrical component. Consequently, it delivers a continuous stream of hot water without the need to wait for the storage tank to fill up enough hot water.

Tankless water heaters can deliver hot water at 7.6–15.2 liters per minute rate. However, if there's a large demand for supply, it is highly recommended to install two or more tankless water heaters, installed in a parallel connection for a constant supply of hot water. Separate tankless water heaters can also be installed for appliances that require a large amount of water in your home.

If you need professional plumbers to install a tankless water heater for your home, contact Central Plumbing and Heating. We specialize in tankless and high-efficiency water heaters. We service all brands, makes, and models of a water heater. All of our work is fully guaranteed and all systems themselves are covered via full warranties.

It is important to ensure that your plumbing system is energy efficient that will help tremendously in reducing energy costs and reducing your carbon footprint. The best place to start is in your home. There are many environmentally friendly plumbing solutions in your home that with the right plumbing structure and with proper pipes of the right material will improve water the pressure that automatically minimizes leakage and waste. However, it is good to know that there are many ways that will be beneficial to you and your family as well.

There are plumbing solutions that help reduces the amount of energy you use as well. Like using more efficient water heaters, tankless water heaters and insulating pipes are all ways of doing this. The resulting savings in energy usage will benefit the environment and your bank account. Also, pipe insulators give the highest potential to reduce heat loss. If the plumbing structure has insulation to keep the heat in, your home uses less energy to heat the water hence insulating your pipes is very effective. Further, using the right faucet accessories such as aerators are high-performing, water-efficient fixtures that will help save water, energy and money. Ensure that every product for plumbing used will meet the criteria for efficiency and performance on saving water and still provides adequate flow.

With the right plumbing solution, it will help homeowners reduce energy consumption, save water, and create a healthier home. This final benefit is as important for your family’s health and that of the environment. By filtering the water coming into your home, you get healthier drinking water, eliminate the toxins in the water you bathe in, extend the life of the clothes you wash, and protect the environment by reducing the toxicity of the wastewater that leaves your home through your drains. Lastly, reducing water usage is not just good for the environment, it helps save you money on your water bill too.

This blog post is offered as a public service to remind all of you that your HVAC system needs regular and recurring maintenance to prolong the life and the performance of your systems. We know for a fact that HVAC systems are the most neglected of the homeowner’s major support systems. We hope that you wisely turn to the professionals like us here at Central Plumbing and Heating to guarantee that you secure proper maintenance and maximize the lifespan of your systems. But if you choose to go it alone, the following are furnace maintenance tips that will help you maximize the performance of your heating system throughout winter.

Certified technicians will check the unit for any operational issues and will carry out the upkeep procedure such as cleaning in order to prevent it from malfunctioning in the future, improve its efficiency and ensure that the system is operating safely.

2. Clean the Filters Regularly - A dirty filter is a usual cause of issues and efficiency problems.

The filter must be checked, cleaned or changed monthly.

3. Test the CO detectors - CO detector serves as a warning device that detects a carbon monoxide leak which can be life-threatening. CO detectors must be tested to ensure they are working properly. Also, make sure that the batteries are new during the heating season.

4. Let air registers breathe - The furnace may find it difficult to heat your home evenly when any of the air registers are blocked off. Make sure they are open and remove any obstructions.

5. Inspect the pilot light in older furnaces - Make sure an older furnace with a pilot light is burning bright blue. In case you notice a different color, it indicates inefficient burning and you may need to contact your trusted HVAC technician to check the issue.

6. Outdoor exhaust pipes must be blocked - Gas furnaces that are highly efficient have exhaust pipes that lead outside the home and close the ground. In order to ensure it operates safely and efficiently, make sure pipes are not blocked.

7. Keep the area around the system clear - Clear the area around the furnace so it is easy to access during inspection, maintenance or repairs.

Upgrading HVAC Systems Help Lower Energy Cost

Darren Kincaid - Thursday, October 31, 2019
Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VA

Summer and winter in Chesapeake can be extreme. Homes cannot be without heating and cooling. If you observe that your energy bill crawling up further each year, this means an HVAC system replacement is inevitable. The good news there, however, upgrading your HVAC system presents long term savings.

As HVAC systems become outdated their energy efficiency decreases. Modern HVAC units are engineered to be more efficient in energy. It's recommended to opt for HVAC appliances with Energy Star label and consider its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. It should be 14 and beyond. The higher the SEER of the unit, the more energy efficient it is. It can help lower energy consumption by 20% and significantly minimize annual energy cost.

Expect an obsolete HVAC system to break down frequently. Regular HVAC repairs are necessary to keep them working. But this also means constant expenditure. Old HVAC appliances will come to a point where they are no longer worthy spending for. Consider the inconvenience of having no heating or cooling while it is being repaired. Purchasing a new and reliable HVAC system will allow you to save money and hassle over time.

Quit settling with an inefficient HVAC unit. If your heating and cooling system is already very obsolete, updating the HVAC system will help you lower down your energy cost. The savings you get from the new HVAC system will offset the initial installation cost in the long run.

If you are thinking of updating your HVAC system, contact Central Plumbing and Heating. When it comes to HVAC manufactures (American Standard, Goodman, etc) we have direct working relationships with all of them. Our promise to you is to act as your agent, to research the most current technologies, efficiency ratings, rebates, and other factors that go into making the right choice of HVAC manufacturer for you and your family.
