Don't Get Caught in the Cold - 3 Tricks for Speedy HVAC Warmth

Speedy-Warmth

How can you give your heating and air conditioning system a little boost for speedy warmth? When it’s cold outside and you want to warm up quickly, there are some easy ways to get your house warmer, faster. Take a look at these three tricks for speedy HVAC warmth, so you don’t get caught in the cold this winter:

Trick #1: Get a Smart Thermostat

If you’re still living with an outdated thermostat, it’s time for an upgrade. A smart thermostat allows you to program your heat settings based on your preferences and lifestyle. You can set it so the heat will go on before you get home, so you can come home to a nice warm house. You can also change the setting wirelessly through an app on your phone, so you can adjust the heat no matter where you are.

Trick #2: Check Your Registers

Are your registers open or closed? If you haven’t checked lately, it’s worth a look. It’s easy to accidentally close floor registers. If you find closed or partially closed registers, it can take longer for your house to warm up. Make sure your registers are open for proper circulation and heating of your home.

Trick #3: Change Your Air Filter

A dirty HVAC air is going to make it harder for your system to pull in air for heating. When this happens, your system will have to work overtime to try to keep up. If the filter is really clogged, it will take longer for your home to get warm and cozy.

Does your house take too long to heat up? Try the aforementioned tricks to speed up the process. However, if you’re still having trouble, it’s time to call in our team of pros at Morelli Heating and Air Conditioning, so you don’t end up stuck in the cold this winter.

This Is What Happens when Your Office Doesn't Have Enough Vents

Stagnant-Air

HVAC commercial services can prevent numerous air quality problems. One way they do this is by making sure your office has proper ventilation. If you have blocked vents or not enough vents in the first place, the office won't be a comfortable place to work. Some common issues include the ones described below:

High Humidity Levels

Humidity isn’t just uncomfortable, it also causes mold growth. Mold is dangerous and can cause breathing problems for staff members. If your office is humid enough to allow mold growth, you’re looking at a hefty bill for remediation. Your office needs proper ventilation to keep excess moisture levels in check.

Uncomfortable Temperatures

Is your office hot and stuffy? Does the air seem stale? Are there smells that just won't go away? If so, you may not have enough ventilation. Even the best HVAC unit won’t run properly without proper ventilation. Air must circulate to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.

Commercial Indoor Air Pollution

A number of factors can cause indoor air pollution. These include new office furniture, paint, and carpets, all of which can release chemicals into the air. Pollutants in the air can then cause multiple health issues. Common symptoms of indoor air pollution include breathing problems, itchy eyes, fatigue, and headaches. You need a good ventilation system to bring in fresh air and disperse these pollutants.

Cook Thanksgiving Dinner - Not Your House: 3 Tips to Staying Cool during Holiday Cooking

Stagnant-Air

Learn three ways to boost energy efficiency when cooking Thanksgiving dinner for your family.

Energy efficiency will help you save hundreds of dollars every year. Thankfully, you can conserve energy even if you are cooking Thanksgiving dinner for a large crowd. Here are some tried and true tips to get you started:

Cook Early

Turning on the oven on a hot afternoon will cook your turkey and your house. Thankfully, you don’t have to bake your turkey right before dinner if you plan ahead. Bake early in the morning to avoid the heat. It’s quick and easy to reheat the turkey before serving it.

Use Fans to Give Your HVAC Unit a Boost

It’s great to have an energy efficient HVAC unit. However, you don’t want to have to run it in November. If your kitchen gets hot while cooking, turn on a fan. A fan will cool the air and help you get rid of strong odors. Place a tray of ice under the fan if it’s hotter than normal.

Watch out for the Sun – It’s More Efficient to Use Indoor Lighting

Natural light is great, but not on a hot day. Close curtains if you have a lot of windows in the kitchen and turn on a few lights instead. If you have LED lights, they’ll stay cooler and won’t use much power.

Is energy efficiency important to you? If so, Morelli Heating and Air Conditioning can help you consistently save money. We offer an array of energy efficient HVAC products at reasonable prices. Additionally, our certified technicians provide only the best maintenance and repair services. Contact Morelli today to learn more about the many options we offer to increase your energy efficiency.

How Does Your Fireplace Affect Your Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant-Air Learn how maintenance agreements can help you maintain healthy indoor air quality throughout the year.

What in the world do HVAC maintenance agreements and a nice, warm fire have in common? Your indoor air quality, that’s what. Fireplaces are great for keeping your home warm, but what does it do to your indoor air? If you have a wood-burning fireplace, you also need to have a maintenance agreement in place for your HVAC system, to make sure you’re not sacrificing your indoor air quality for the sake of a fireplace.

How Fireplaces Affect Air Quality

Fireplaces may release carbon monoxide, nitrogen monoxide, and, soot particles into the air. Carbon monoxide is particularly dangerous. It causes thousands of hospitalizations and hundreds of deaths every year. Nitrogen monoxide and soot particles can cause breathing problems such as asthma and bronchitis. Senior citizens, children and people with allergy problems are the most affected by these pollutants. However, they can negatively affect healthy people as well.

How Does a Maintenance Agreement Improve Indoor Air Quality?

An HVAC company should clean and maintain your heating and cooling system twice every year. Schedule the service in the spring before cooling season and again in the fall before you turn on the heat when the weather gets chilly. During fall maintenance, a technician will check your system for proper function, calibrate the thermostat, and inspect the entire system to be sure it’s running properly and safely.

A system that’s running properly is going to run more cleanly, helping to improve your indoor air quality. They will also make sure there are no ventilation issues. If need be, the maintenance crew may also recommend an air purification system. Such a system will keep your air clean year-round and prevent ongoing health issues.

Maintenance agreements don't have to be expensive. Morelli Heating and Air Conditioning offers a Peak Performance Maintenance Agreement. This agreement comes with great perks and amenities. These include full labor coverage and a 10% discount on parts and materials. You will also get a 10% on labor if you need repair work done during the year.

Contact our team at Morelli to learn more about how a maintenance agreement can improve your indoor air quality.
