A/C & Heating Repair

Most folks take their HVAC system for granted when it works and curse it when it doesn't.

Getting a system repaired can be very simple like changing out a thermostat, or very complex, like changing out specific parts of the heating and air conditioning. Repairing and upgrading can save money.

How Much Does An Air Conditioning Unit Cost To Operate?

One thing to understand about an air conditioning and heating system is that no two systems are alike.

This means that operating costs will vary (even when the brand is the same) because of the floor plan, duct layout and even the frequency of routine maintenance to the systems.

Getting an air conditioner and heating system repaired will often help to dramatically reduce operating costs on an older system. This is because older systems are usually not as energy efficient. Even more recent models may improve in efficiency when repaired and/or upgraded.

Older air conditioning and heating systems can often cost more each month because of inefficient cooling and heating performance. It is also entirely common for the older system to draw more energy, especially when they have not had routine inspections or maintenance.

This is why it is important to have an older air conditioning and heating system inspected regularly. A system that has been in constant use for years will require more TLC than a newer model.

Air Conditioning and Heating Repair Evaluation

An air conditioning and heating specialist will first conduct a thorough evaluation of the unit before making any claims or pronouncements. This step is important because the technician must gain as much information on the air conditioning system as possible to make the right diagnosis.

A professional evaluation may actually save a homeowner thousands of dollars in unnecessary labor and equipment.

Professional air conditioning and heating technicians are familiar with the complexities of these systems.. For example, additional construction or room additions to the home, can influence the effectiveness of the HVAC system. Our technicians will sit with the customer to go over the evaluation and explain any issues before making recommendations.

It really doesn't pay to take any chances with the performance of a home air conditioning and heating system.  The beneficial effects of a temperature control system on the structural longevity of a house is often overlooked. Initiating proper maintenance and implementing air-conditioner and heating repairs when needed can help to preserve a home for many years to come.

A/C & Heating Tune-Ups

Seasonal changes can be mild one year, and severe the next year. Many homeowners prepare for those seasonal changes by scheduling air conditioner and heating tune-ups.

It may not be the most glamorous date on the calendar, but seasonal maintenance can save a homeowner thousands of dollars in repair bills.

Regularly Scheduled Air Conditioner and Heating Tune-Ups

The main objective of a heating and air cooling system in a residential or commercial environment is temperature regulation.

Although these units are associated with heat and cold, their goal is to moderate the extremes by keeping the temperature constant at a comfortable level.  Regular seasonal tune-ups help to maintain efficient operation.

An expert heating and cooling contractor schedules a time to come out at least twice a year to check the system and prepare it for the hot or cold months ahead.

Many of our clients schedule a spring and a fall inspection to ensure that the heating and air-conditioning system can handle the cold winter nights or hot summer days.

The Importance of Air-Conditioner and Heating Tune Ups

This may seem like a lot of work, especially if the HVAC unit is fairly new. Why would a homeowner go through the expense of having a technician come out twice a year to pamper his or her heating and cooling system? The answer is, to save a lot of money.

Whether a heating and cooling system is new or old, regularly scheduled maintenance can keep it running in optimal condition.

Residential and commercial customers have experienced ongoing savings in energy costs and repair bills by maintaining their HVAC equipment. Their existing units last longer, utilizes less energy and have fewer operational problems.

In the long run, regularly scheduled air-conditioner and heating tune-ups saves dollars and makes perfect sense.

Air Duct Heating & Repair

Interior climate control is becoming an indispensable convenience for daily life. These heating and air conditioning systems offer much more than simple comfort and convenience; during extreme weather conditions they are lifesavers.

One of the most important components of an HVAC installation is the duct system.

Inspecting the Air Duct System

The ducts are part of the system that transports air throughout the house. Much like arteries and veins in the human body, these ducts move air at a preselected temperature throughout the house. They help to promote proper circulation throughout the building.

The importance of the duct system should not be ignored. Even the most efficient heating and air system can be brought down by leaky duct work. Air ducts that are obstructed by dirt and debris can dramatically reduce the efficiency of any modern central air system.

During the coldest and hottest months of the year the duct system has to transport warm or cool air efficiently. These tunnels are also important for proper ventilation.

Appropriate inspections should be made in the spring and summer. Needed maintenance and repair should be undertaken to avoid compromising the system.

The Air Duct Installation Process

Since these ducts are designed to move air through the home they are usually installed after the basic frame construction is complete. The air duct installation takes place before the drywall and other finishing carpentry are initiated. Air must move from the HVAC unit, throughout the building and then vented out of the premises.

The most efficient duct work layout and design seeks to run as straight as possible with a minimum of curves or turns. Circulation slows down when air has to move through twists and turns. Fewer "elbows" also means less opportunity for leaks or structural degradation.

There is much more to air duct installation and repair than simply installing the branch ducts, or screwing in a few brackets. The work must be integrated into the entire circulatory system. Proper air duct installation and repair is necessary to ensure good air quality and efficient temperature control.

The best air duct installation and repair operation calls for proper planning, and implementation. The duct work should be balanced, well insulated, sealed and tested for optimal airflow. We follow those guidelines for every air duct job we complete.

If you are looking to have duct work done, don't hesitate to give Lake Heating & Ventilating Inc. a call at 219-662-0300.

Indoor Air Quality

Although we place locks and deadbolts on our doors, install fire and burglar alarms to warn us against danger, many people are unaware of the hidden environmental menaces in the home.

Indoor air pollution is listed among the top five environmental hazards to public health. Because the problem is often invisible, and does not affect us immediately, the danger is often ignored.

A study by The Environmental Working Group in 2009 uncovered 457 air contaminants in 21 household cleaners. The chemicals, when dispersed through the air, posed serious health risks. Even products labeled "green" contained contaminants.

The Environmental Protection Agency continually warns us about the hazards of indoor air pollution. These invisible contaminants can cause rooms to be 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. The process of decline is slow because these particles and gases are distributed in small concentrations.

Over time they can cause sickness; exacerbating diseases such as asthma and allergies. We breathe in toxic cleaning solvents or chemicals such as glues, epoxies or certain paints can release fumes. Poor circulation or ventilation causes these particulates and gases to remain indoors and in our lungs.

Identifying the Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality

We may be breathing in dust mite debris, pollen or mold spores; microscopic pollutants. Garages or workrooms may have left-over particulates from aerosols and even the kitchen can be a major source of noxious fumes from combustion products, cleaners and bacteria.

As the weather gets warmer the increase in temperature and humidity can increase the concentration levels of many of these indoor pollutants. Inadequate cleaning and maintenance can also leave deposits of human and animal skin in the form of dust throughout the home. This material is breathed in and expelled in a constant cycle.

Proper ventilation is important to optimal health. A central heating and air system can be an integral part of the solution or a hidden component of the problem.

An efficient HVAC system can move the air through the home and filter much of the particulates. Proper maintenance of filters and air ducts can help to decrease the amount of indoor air pollution.

Dust, debris and moisture can be trapped in air ducts. Regularly scheduled maintenance can help to avoid any build up in these hidden areas. Improve the indoor air quality and avoid hidden hazards in the home.
