One question that every HVAC contractor in Long Beach hears from time to time is “how do I improve energy efficiency?” Some homeowners worry that such questions will prompt their contractor to go into sales mode, and that the solution will be to drop thousands of dollars on new, efficient equipment that the homeowner just really cannot afford.

Choosing Between a Natural Gas or Electric Furnace

Monday, November 19th, 2018

blue-question-markFurnaces are, without a doubt, one of the most reliable heating systems on the market. There’s no shortage of homeowners requesting them, and it’s rare to find an HVAC contractor who doesn’t offer furnace installation services.

But even when talking about furnaces, you must break them down into two separate categories: natural gas furnaces and electric furnaces. Both of them have their own set of benefits and drawbacks.

Monday, October 8th, 2018

duct-sealing-in-atticHere in Southern California, we have a little more time before we start turning on our heaters. And even then, we’ll only be using it at night! Regardless, the fact remains that your heater hasn’t been used in nearly half a year. A maintenance call is a great place to start, but there’s one aspect of the HVAC system that homeowners forget year after year after year.

We’re referring to the duct system. That’s right, the series of vents that run through your attic or crawlspace and deliver heated air to the home. There’s no better time than the start of a new season to make sure your system is in tip-top shape, and duct sealing is a great place to start.
