In the time since we began One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, we have seen more than 30 winter seasons come and go. With all of that experience providing routine and emergency heater repairs in Montgomery County, we have certainly learned a thing or two over the years. As a way of passing some of the knowledge that we have gained, here are four tips for saving money on your energy costs this season:
During the frigid winter months, it is imperative that you keep your heating system running in top shape. There are few things worse than waking up to find that your heat has stopped working in the middle of the night, effectively turning your home into an igloo. Thankfully, if your heating system does malfunction, One Hour can provide emergency heater repair for Montgomery County and across Southeastern PA with guaranteed on-time arrival when you call.
In an effort to prepare you for the possibility of a heating failure, we have compiled the three primary warning signs that require emergency heater repair. These heating red flags include:
Unless you’re Pig-Pen from the old Peanuts comics by Charles Schultz, you probably don’t want your home filled with particles of dirt, dust, and debris. We completely understand that here at One Hour, which is why we offer some of the highest quality products and services in the world of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Whether you’re seeking heat pump services or higher-quality HVAC equipment in Montgomery County, PA, you do not have to look any further because our team provides both.
An air filter is a major component of the air handler, which is part of your home’s HVAC system. It ensures that the air in your home is free of dirt and other debris so that you and your family can breathe in clean and healthy air. When your air filter is dirty, it can cause major complications for other parts of the air handler.
Thermostats are a delicate household fixture that may frequently need upkeep or replacement. Some thermostat issues are more severe than others, so it’s important to know the signs. Sometimes all thermostats need is a quick dusting or battery replacement. But other times, it is necessary to call a professional, such as our technicians at One Hour, for a thermostat replacement.
Whether your thermostat needs to be simply dusted or fully replaced, you should know the signs that it needs even the slightest maintenance, so you know whether or not you need the help of a professional.
Since we’re right in the middle of the summer season, the weather is at its hottest. We are regularly exposed to the risks of severe heat waves. When the weather makes it too hot to go outside, it’s natural to want to stay in your home. However, sometimes houses can be just as hot – if not more so – as the weather outside.
If your AC breaks – or if you don’t have one – you and your family will inevitably be uncomfortable. The absence of a functioning air conditioner allows the presence of stuffy, muggy heat within your home. However, the lack of a proper AC unit poses more risks than making your house feel too warm.
As the summer months are approaching, it is more important than ever to have a functioning air conditioning system in your home. During the hot days of summer, your air conditioning system is most definitely working overtime. So it is during these extreme heat spells that most problems do occur. Due to the fact that all of the air conditioning systems in your area are experiencing this same weather, many systems tend to go down simultaneously, putting you on a list of systems that need fixing, and leaving you without air conditioning on some of the hottest days of the year. The best way to try and avoid this, is by having regular maintenance done on your system, giving the technician an opportunity to find potential problems before extreme weather strikes.
A hot, muggy day in summer is no match for a blissfully cool, air-conditioned home. When your AC is running smoothly, your home becomes a refreshing oasis amidst the punishing heat.
But a hot, muggy day indoors without a functioning air conditioner? That oasis might as well be the belly of a volcano.
Don’t spend your summer swamped in sweat and air conditioning repairs. Instead, take care of your air conditioning maintenance well ahead of the high-temp season so you can enjoy it.
Everyone wants their family to be safe, especially at home! And not all dangers present themselves in obvious ways. They can lurk in the neglect of your oil boiler or furnace–they can leak out undetected. At One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, we want to stress that you get your heating systems cleaned out regularly to avoid soot clogging the passages, not only lowering efficiency, but also risking you and your family’s health.
