Air Conditioning Systems

Older Homes Are not equipped with central air

In the Philadelphia area, there are countless historical sites the visit and beautiful older homes to live in. These home come equipped with heating systems via boiler systems and radiators. However, these older homes do not come with central air. Often times, many people resort to window units during the summer month. These can work somewhat well as a temporary solution, but they can become a hindrance over long periods of time. They are loud, not very efficient, and can only handle effectively cooling a certain amount of square footage.

If you have been dreading the upcoming summer because of your loud, clunky, and ugly window unit, maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Switching to central air can be beneficial when it comes to saving money on energy bills, but the upfront cost of installing duct work can cost thousands of dollars and require a lot of intrusive work in your home such as cutting holes in the ceilings and walls or even lowering your ceilings to accommodate the size of ventilation systems.

Air Conditioning Options for Older Homes

VRF System (Variable Refrigerant Flow)

A VRF system can be installed without duct work, making this option suitable for any home. It utilizes refrigerant for both cooling and heating via a condensing unit which is located outside the home. The unit uses a compressor and refrigerant and “assesses” the temperature of each “zone” or room and adjusts both the compressor’s motor speed and the refrigerant flow accordingly. Because this system is so complex, it takes a skilled HVAC installer to both install and run routine maintenance on the machine. Make sure you are able to find a reputable company that can handle this type of complex technology.

Pros:

Cons:

Ductless Mini Splits

The ductless mini split may be a more suitable option for your home, as it is relatively inexpensive compared to other air conditioning systems. They are small but powerful, and each indoor unit can handle a considerable amount of square footage. They are much quieter and more efficient than a basic window unit.

Everything you Need to Know About

Boilers & Furnace Repairs

As winter approaches it is important to make sure your heating system is well maintained and ready to serve! First thing first is knowing what you have and how that impacts to kinds of things to look out for. If you have a furnace you’ll have different maintenance needs than if you have a boiler. Which also means furnace repairs are going to be different than boiler repairs. HTR Mechanical can help you with any HVAC system if they need maintenance or repair.

Furnace vs. Boilers

Furnace Maintenance

Common Furnace Repair

  1. Cracked Heat Exchanger – This pricey repair can be prevented with regular maintenance. This part is important because it separates the combustion process from the breathing air in your furnace.
  2. Dirty Filters – If you want your furnace to run efficiently then you’ll want to make sure your filters are cleaned or replaced regularly. 
  3. Slipped or Frayed Blower Belt – If you hear a high-pitched squeal then it might be the belt. The blower moves the warm air throughout the house, thus if the belt goes then the air isn’t being distributed.
  4. Electric Ignition or Pilot Light Control Problems – The ignition of pilot light is the heating element of the furnace, so if you notice a drop in heat you might need a professional to look at this.
  5. Malfunctioning Thermostat – If your thermostat is malfunctioning  it can mess with the fan and comfort levels of your home so if you notice anything off about it be sure to call for help.
  6. Worn Out Ball Bearings – Usually signified by a scraping sound, if you hear this you’ll want to turn off the furnace and call an HVAC expert right away.
Boiler Maintenance

Common Boiler Repair

  1. Leaks – Since boilers are designed to be airtight, any leaking is a severe issue. The source of the leak must be found, repaired and the lost water replaced right away.
  2. Low Water Pressure – Listen for any rumbling sounds because it is a sign of overheating. Leaving your system like this can cause extensive and pricey repairs.
  3. Corroded Parts – Rust sometimes can get into the boiler and usually means it needs to be replaced. This problem can be limited by regular maintence.
  4. Broken Circulator Pump – If your heat seems to have stopped but the boiler still seems to be running then the issue is likely the circulator pump. This is a common and fairly easy job for professional HVAC service providers.
  5. Dirty Tanks – Every now and then the water in the boiler gets dirty with sediment and needs to be replaced with clean water. Regular cleaning keepts the efficancy up in your boiler.
  6. Burnt-Out Heating Element – In electric boilers there are two heating elements that warm the water inside the tank. If one goes then the temperature will drop, and thus the element will need to be replaced.
