Regular and routine maintenance is so important. And sometimes, just having a technician in your home or place of business can catch things that otherwise might have gone unnoticed.

This article mentions the batteries not operating! Well, we have even run into instances where the alarm didn’t work at all, even with fresh batteries.

Everyone was safe, which is the most important thing!

Heating and Air Conditioning in Boise

From Fire To This!

HVAC isn’t new by any means. In home HVAC systems began booming in during the industrial revolution and central air systems’ roots can be traced as far back as ancient Rome, who created duct work in homes and in public baths. The first part of this acronym addresses Heating. Usually this is done by a central heating system by using a boiler or a furnace to heat either air or water, and then using ductwork to transfer the produced heat into your home. The second part stands for Ventilation. This involves filtering, replacing, and exchanging existing indoor air to create better air quality. The last part, and my favorite, is Air Conditioning. In my opinion the best feeling is coming home to a refreshingly cool house after being in the hot Summer sun. Air Conditioners do this by removing the heat in your home. The concept of “removing heat” is similar to that feeling of evaporating rubbing alcohol on your skin. This is done by conduction or chemical refrigerants, which remove heat – producing cool air. Then that air is usually dispersed by the same ductwork your central heating system uses.

It’s good to be educated about your HVAC system as it is crucial for comfort and often one of the most expensive appliances in your home. To learn more stay posted to this blog or if you have questions or need service click this link Boise Heating. Thank You!

We may get some calls for situations like this one…

Thieves caught on video!

A man and his accomplice, a pregnant woman, stop by a commercial building at 5:30 am in broad daylight to steal an air conditioning unit. The “get away car” was mostly a hassle since they spent over 11 minutes trying to fit the unit in.  After trying the backseat to no avail, the man decides to try the trunk. This is the point at which his pregnant accomplice gets involved.  She helps him figure out how to get it to fit in the trunk.

Was it a crime of convenience or one of desperation? Is it true that people are willing to haul an entire AC unit off to sell for parts? What would you do if you came outside and your unit installed by heating and cooling experts was just…missing?  Can you imagine your service technician walking into your backyard to find an empty cement pad where your unit had once been?  Exposed wires and copper pipe dangling, freeon seeping into your grass, is there protocol for this!? I may just have to shop around for a cage to keep my unit in!

What would you do?? First, call the police and then call your heating and air company to verify everything is safe until further repairs can be made.

With the price of copper and rare materials and metals on the rise these days, this is becoming more of a concern for our Boise and Meridian residents. Though firm numbers are not necessarily available, thieves can sometimes net $100 to $200 for copper stolen from an air conditioning unit. For the most part, police collectively believe the culprits are usually petty criminals looking for some quick money. Those who are arrested are often charged with burglary or larceny, depending upon the circumstances of the theft, and face fines, probation, or several years in jail. In the long run, most people can be reimbursed through homeowner’s insurance, but often must pay a deductible. Call us today to see what preventative measures you can take NOW before your a/c ends up in someone’s car!

Yes, these are the same size capacity…

New air conditioners have more surface area to transfer heat and this is where they pick up their efficiency. You see, both of the units in this picture are the same capacity; believe it or not. You can never judge a book by its cover, right? 
The air conditioner on the right is more than 60% efficient than the one on the left. 
This means lower utility bills! Yay! Who doesn’t want to save on their power bill this summer??
