Tips to Improve your Heating Efficiency this Fall

heating Ann Arbor


The efficiency of a furnace is measured by the percentage of money spent on heating that actually converts to warming your home. New furnaces from Bryant are highly efficient to the point where 97% of every dollar spent heats your home. Many older furnaces only convert about 65%! The rest of this energy is wasted by old technology and a pilot light that’s constantly lit. New furnaces have an electric ignition that only starts when the thermostat tells it to, meaning they’re not burning unnecessary fuel like a traditional pilot light.

Take your Efficiency to the Next Level this Fall

heating Ann Arbor


If you want to really take your efficiency to the next level this fall, the best thing you can do is have your furnace tuned-up and the filter cleaned or replaced. These tune-ups include cleaning important pieces from dirt and condensation, checking if certain pieces are working and then testing the efficiency of the furnace. By doing this, you’re allowing your furnace to do the same work but expend less energy doing it, which will certainly pay off on your energy bill! And better yet, a well-kept furnace will last you a lot longer. Click here to learn more tips about heating your Ann Arbor home more efficiently.

Improve Poor Circulation in Your Ann Arbor Home

Poor air circulation in your home could be hiding a bigger problem. Stagnant air or too much unregulated outside air goes deeper than just discomfort. A home that isn’t properly ventilated will leave moisture-rich air sitting in your rooms, potentially causing mold. Without ventilation, air containing bacteria and illness-causing pathogens may sit for a long time, trapped in the spaces you live. And if air moves too freely from outside your house to inside, that air might bring in all kinds of dirt and other particles, including allergens. If you think your home might be the victim of poor ventilation, read more here about how air conditioning repair for your Ann Arbor home can greatly improve the quality of your air.

Is Your Refrigerant Running?





If you think your heat pump might be leaking refrigerant, how do you tell? There are three telltale signs:
1.      Check your electric bill! If your heat pump is running on backup, you’ll have a much higher bill than normal.
2.      Check your gas bill too. If you have a dual fuel pump, your gas may also be much higher than normal.
3.      Check your thermostat! If you notice your thermostat “lagging,” your pump might be leaking refrigerant. This happens when your thermostat is trying to keep up with your temperature setting.

Refrigerant Leaks | Heating Ann Arbor





It might feel like the middle of winter, but spring is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to check your heat pump! As the experts on heating in the Ann Arbor area, one of the most common questions we’re asked this time of year is whether a heat pump is leaking refrigerant.

Most homeowners notice potential leaks in the spring because they notice not cooling like it should. Many homeowners don’t notice this during the winter because the heat pump runs on backup heat without them noticing. If your heat pump is doing this, it’s costing you money!

Get a New Heat Pump in Your Ann Arbor Area Home and Stay Comfortable

With a hybrid system, the furnace and heat pump operate based on the outdoor temperature. In extremely cold temperatures, the furnace will heat your home. As the temperature approaches 30 degrees and higher the heat pump takes over. This will allow you the flexibility to use either a fossil fuel or electricity. This is done automatically with a lock out set point in the thermostat.
