There are a lot of different heating and cooling companies out there, and if you’ve begun the process of researching which one is right for you, it’s likely that you’re feeling overwhelmed with the decision. Here are some important things to look for when choosing an HVAC company to help with a furnace or air conditioning repair or replacement.
As with any job out there, the more experience you have, the better. This factor is imperative when it comes to hiring an HVAC professional. First and foremost, figure out how much experience they have in the local area, especially when it comes to your specific kind of job, whether it’s commercial or residential. Talk to them about how long they have been working with local area businesses or customers and ask them to provide information on recent jobs they have completed so you can follow up if you choose.
#2: Positive reviews.
A positive review goes a long way. Research what the company’s reviews are online, including Facebook, Angie’s List, and Yelp reviews. If there are negative reviews, look closely at them and see if there are any recurring themes. Weigh the positive and negative reviews carefully to see if there are any red flags. Online reviews can tell a lot about the company’s customer service priorities as well as their quality of workmanship on completed jobs.
#3: Comprehensive services.
Does the company you’re looking at just provide HVAC installs? If so, it’s a good idea to keep looking for a different company. You want to find a company that does everything – repair, replacement, and preventative maintenance. A quality heating and cooling system is a large investment for a home or business and it’s better to find a trusted team of technicians at a company that can handle everything, so you can call them for whatever HVAC needs that you have that may come up in the future.

Businesses have a variety of costs associated with keeping their business running successfully and saving money is likely at the forefront of any good business person’s business model. Did you know that saving energy is not only great for the environment but it will also save you money? Here are some tips on how to save energy in your commercial building.
Tip #1: Monitor usage.
How much energy does your commercial space use? Monitor your commercial building’s energy use closely by checking and updating its energy consumption on a regular basis. This will not only let you know how much you’re using but it will ensure that you’re not using excessive amounts of energy.
Tip #2: Monitor heating and cooling temperatures.
This can make a big difference on your energy bills. If it isn’t necessary to heat or cool your building all day and night to keep employees comfortable, consider setting the thermostat to the “save” or “auto” function during the non-business hours.
Tip #3: Keep your HVAC system maintained.
An HVAC system that is not regularly tuned up could be using excess energy and causing your utility bill to increase. Make sure you contact our experienced team of HVAC technicians for routine annual service appointments. During these appointments, we will clean filters, look closely at all of the components of your HVAC system and be sure that all electrical connections are secure and that there are no parts that need to be replaced. With a properly working machine, you’ll reduce your energy consumption and reduce your risk for unnecessary breakdowns when you need the system the most.
Tip #4: Replace your HVAC system.
If your HVAC system is out of date and it has been repaired more times than you can count, it may be time for you to replace it. A new system will be energy efficient, save energy, and will serve as a reliable heating and cooling source for many years to come. Our team of professionals can help you determine which system is right for your commercial building’s layout, and we will also work with your budget guidelines. Contact us today for a free quote!

Summertime is almost here and that means the kids are out of school and you’ll probably be doing a lot of fun things together. This can also be an expensive few months because of vacations, day trips, and other outings that cost money. Looking to save money in as many ways as possible? The warm weather will be here to stay for a while, and that means your air conditioner will be put to the test. Here are some helpful air conditioner tips that can help save you money this summer.
If you service your air conditioner before summer officially starts, it will be ready to tackle the hottest summer days with ease. We will make sure that your cooling system is working well by checking to make sure the parts are functioning as they should and that there are no repairs or other updates needed. We’ll also clean and/or replace the filters if necessary, which can not only reduce energy use, but also prolong the life of the system.
Did you know that blocking vents in your home not only causes inefficient cooling, but it can also cause your system to work harder and increase your energy bill? Move around your furniture and make sure that all vents in your home are free and clear and are able to do their job.
Keep your thermostat at one temperature. Adjusting it up or down all the time will cause your system to work harder but it will also mess with your utility bill. Keeping your thermostat adjusted at one temperature at all times means your home will be kept cool and comfortable all the time and your energy bill won’t come as a huge shock.
Your air conditioner is probably your best friend in the summer months, but small fans can also help keep you cool. One way to reduce energy use is to use fans at night to keep cool air circulating.

Hybrid Heating and Air Conditioning: Quality service & installation is our only business.
Winter is here & chilly mornings mean that you’re likely turning on your heater more and more and you’re becoming accustomed to keeping the heat on for the day. If you’re tired of using separate systems to keep your home comfortable throughout the year, it’s time to consider using one system that can both heat and cool your home all year long.
A heat pump.
Heat pumps are a wonderful option for homes of all sizes and layouts, as they can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, all with a touch of a button. Here are some of the primary benefits of using a heat pump in your home.
Benefit #1: Superb comfort.
No matter how crazy the weather is outside, you’ll be comfortable inside as the heat pump provides clean air and consistent temperatures. You get to pick what temperature feels right to you and all you have to do is, click the button. They can run as long as you need them to on a low speed so you have an even temperature throughout the house.
Benefit #2: Quiet.
Heat pumps are extremely quiet and you can usually barely even notice that they’re on! You can kiss the loud, clanging air conditioning unit goodbye in the summer and you won’t ever need to use an inefficient baseboard or wall heater again with a heat pump. Heat pumps run at lower capacities which means they have very little sound associated with them.
Benefit #3: Save money.
Heat pumps are incredibly energy efficient, which means that you’ll likely see a big drop in your utility bill each month. In addition, there are wide varieties of rebates, federal and state tax credits, and other cash incentives out there through the end of the year that can help save you more money when it comes time to get the system installed in your home.
