All About Geothermal: What You Need To Know

Geothermal heat pumps offer an alternative that can save energy and money.

Is Your A/C Maintaining the Right Humidity in Your Home?

The air conditioner’s main job is to control temperature, not humidity. Whenever the unit has to fight against excess humidity, it often wastes energy countering the large amounts of heat-holding water vapor to condition the air. 

Size a Heat Pump Properly for Effective Cooling and Humidity Control

To determine the correct unit size, a load calculation is necessary. This process includes measuring the cubic feet inside the home. That determines the amount of air space to be conditioned. The heat loss factor is determined by the amount of insulation in the roof and the building envelope.

The History of Refrigerant Gases

The earliest modern air conditioners were intended for large-scale cooling operations; they used refrigerant chemicals that were appropriate for those applications, such as ammonia and carbon dioxide. As the industry's focus shifted to smaller residential and commercial units, sulfur dioxide, methyl chloride and other new refrigerants entered popular usage.

In fact, there's a good chance that you are regularly breathing in all kinds of indoor air pollutants. You may not realize it consciously, but the signs are probably there. Indoor air quality is important, but people often put it on the back burner and needlessly suffer the consequences in the form of asthma attacks and allergic reactions like wheezing and congestion.
