How Can I Tell If I Need Duct Testing?

Monday, June 27th, 2022

One of the most important services we offer our customers is duct testing in Mansfield, LA, and throughout the Shreveport area. During duct testing in a home, we seal off the ventilation system, pressurize the ductwork, and then use manometers to test how well the ducts maintain that air pressure. If the pressure begins to quickly drop, we’ll know the integrity of the ducts has fallen and the ductwork needs sealing to return to make it airtight again. (If it ever was. Poor duct installation is unfortunately common.)

But since you aren’t sitting around with a manometer to test the pressure of your ducts and you can’t visually see most of the ventilation system, how will you know it’s time to give us a shout for duct testing? We’ll give you some answers to this question and pointers for detecting when you’ve got ducts that need an inspection.

How Cool Can an AC Make My Home?

Monday, April 18th, 2022

Air conditioning systems are marvelous devices. For centuries, people had methods to add heat to their homes but didn’t have a standard method to cool them down. Mechanical air conditioning was invented in the early 20th century but didn’t start to have a significant impact on homes until the 1950s. Now it’s hard for us to imagine making it through a summer without using the cooling power of ACs.

You may have wondered about the performance of your own air conditioning system. For example, how cool can an AC make a house? There must be an upper limit, but what is it? We’ll look at these questions in this post because this knowledge can help you understand how best to run your AC and set the thermostat.

Gas vs. Electric: Which Is the Best Type of Furnace?

Monday, November 15th, 2021

Furnaces can run from a wide range of fuel types. There are even wood-burning furnaces in use today, although they burn a type of compressed wood pellet that makes them more energy-efficient than old-fashioned furnaces. Other fuel types include oil and liquid propane. However, for most homes, it comes down to two energy choices: a gas-burning furnace or an electric furnace. 

The “gas vs. electric” choice often isn’t difficult. If you live in an all-electric home that doesn’t have access to a natural gas line, a gas furnace is not an option. (On the other hand, an electric furnace isn’t your only option for winter warmth; you can also consider a heat pump, which is a whole other topic.) But there are situations where you may find yourself balanced between gas and electric. Is there a better choice between the two? It depends. We recommend you schedule professional furnace service in Mansfield, LA with our team to help you determine your best heating installation. 

We’ll give you a head start thinking about furnace type below as we list the pros and cons of these two popular furnaces.
