Seasonal Transitions Are Easier with Ductless

Family sits on couch with mother adjusting ductless unit with remoteDuring the months of September and October, the temperature outside can fluctuate greatly. It’s often impossible to know if the days will be warm and sunny, or chilly and cloudy. This can make it difficult to keep your home comfortable. Fortunately, there is an all-in-one solution that can help you stay nice and comfortable, no matter what the weather is like outside – ductless cooling and heating.

Ductless systems are a perfect choice for people who do not have ductwork in their homes. Generally, a home that uses baseboard heating likely does not have ductwork. This makes it extremely difficult and obtrusive to install central air conditioning, so many homeowners without ductwork must rely on window air conditioning to stay cool in the summer. Unfortunately, this can leave homeowners with chilly drafts during the transitional months. Ductless systems offer a solution that provides both better efficiency and comfort.

How do ductless systems provide both cooling and heating?

Ductless systems are generally installed as individual units per room or zone. They usually are straightforward to install, with technicians only needing to drill a small hole to connect the indoor and outdoor components. Most ductless systems then use heat pump technology to cool and heat the spaces in which they’ve been installed.

Because they use heat pump technology, they can keep homes cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They do this by transferring heat from one space to another. In the summer months, they remove the heat from the indoor air and transfer it outside. The process is reversed during the winter months, extracting heat from the outdoor air, and moving it inside. Modern ductless systems have been developed to work even in colder climates, so people can rely on them to provide the heating they in chilly weather.

What are some other benefits of ductless cooling and heating?

Aside from providing year-round comfort, ductless systems offer many other benefits, including:

  • Energy Efficiency: Because they use heat pump technology, ductless systems are usually highly energy efficient. According to the Department of Energy, they can offer up to 50 percent energy savings compared to baseboard heating. Not to mention, ductless systems are much more efficient than most window or room air conditioners, and you won’t have to deal with them taking up living space or blocking your view.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: Each ductless unit has its own filter, which helps to clear the air of dust, dirt, and other particulates so you can count on the air being cleaner in your home. Additionally, ductless systems work great at keeping humidity levels where they should be in your home, helping reduce bacterial and mold growth.
  • Quiet, Unobtrusive Operation: Most people who own ductless systems are impressed by how quiet they are – much quieter than window air conditioning. And, because they’re mounted high on a wall or in the ceiling, you won’t have the worry of them taking up floor space in your home or becoming a fire or burn hazard, as can happen with space heaters or baseboard heating.

Why Choose Stafford Mechanical Services?

Technician servicing an hot-water heaterWe know that when it comes to your home comfort company, you have a lot of choices. It isn’t always easy to know how to choose the best HVAC contractor, and what you should be looking for. You need your cooling and heating system to operate effectively and efficiently, and you need a company that can provide you with the support you need, whether you need maintenance, repair, or a new system installed.

6 Things to Look for in an HVAC Company

There are several things you should keep in mind when choosing the best HVAC company for your home comfort needs. Below, we’ll outline what you should look for, and how Stafford Mechanical Services fits the bill.

  1. How long has the company been in business? Experience matters. When you’re looking for an HVAC company, it’s important to choose one that has been around for a while. Why? The longer a company has been in business, the more likely it is that they know how to keep customers satisfied, and that those customers have recommended the business to others. Stafford Mechanical Services has been helping people stay comfortable since 1991 – more than 30 years!
  2. Does the company provide quality equipment? When choosing an HVAC contractor, it’s important to consider the brands they provide, as well as affiliations with those brands. Many manufacturers require HVAC contractors to be authorized to sell their brands, and they must complete training and meet the appropriate criteria to be considered an authorized dealer. Stafford Mechanical is a Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealer, and we take great pride in representing one of the best brands in the HVAC business.
  3. Will the company provide support before and after the sale? When you choose an HVAC company to install new equipment in your home, you’ll want to look for a contractor that not only can provide the installation but makes sure you get the best possible type of equipment for your home and is able to service it in the future. As a full-service contractor, we’ll make sure the equipment we install for you is the right size and configuration for your home. And, we’ll provide you with any future maintenance or repair services you may need.
  4. Does the company have positive review ratings? Sometimes the best recommendations are word-of-mouth. Check out a company’s Google and Facebook reviews before you choose an HVAC company. You’ll want to read through the positive reviews and see how the company responded to negative ones. While few companies will have a perfect, 5-star rating, you’ll likely want to work with a company that has at least a 4-star rating on both sites. At Stafford Mechanical Services, we’re proud to have a 4.8-star rating on Facebook, and a 4.6-star rating on Google.
  5. Is it easy to request an estimate? An HVAC company shouldn’t make it difficult for you to request an estimate on the work you need done by them. At Stafford Mechanical Services, you’re able to request an estimate directly on our website, and we take the time to meet with our customers to discuss the different types of systems available and the unique needs of their homes.
  6. Does the company have proper licensing and accreditations? Many states and even municipalities require licensure for HVAC companies, as well as various types of insurance. Additionally, there are several accreditations that companies can apply for that show they follow strict guidelines when it comes to employee training and the work they do in your home. Stafford Mechanical Services is fully licensed and insured, our technicians are NATE and EPA certified, and we are accredited with The ACCA Quality Assured (QA) Program and the IGSHPA.

Should I Consider a Geothermal Heat Pump System for My Home?

Crystal globe on moss, ecology and environment sustainable concept.Most people can agree that nothing feels better on a hot, humid day than the cool comfort provided by an air conditioning system. But some homeowners avoid getting a system for their home because they’re concerned about both energy usage and environmental impact. Today, there are many options available that provide both energy-efficient cooling, as well as a smaller carbon footprint. One of those options is geothermal cooling and heating.

What is Geothermal Cooling?

Geothermal cooling works by absorbing the heat from your home and transferring it underground where the cooler earth absorbs it. A geothermal system consists of a heat pump inside your house and vertical loops buried in the ground outside your house. The heat pump circulates a fluid mixture through the loop, which acts as a heat exchanger. In the summer, the heat pump removes heat from the air inside your house and transfers it to the fluid, which then releases it to the cooler ground. This leaves only cold air inside your house. During the winter months, the process is reversed, pumping heat from the ground into your home.

What are some of the benefits of having geothermal cooling and heating installed in my home?

We briefly explained some of the benefits above regarding geothermal, such as better efficiency and smaller environmental impact. Here are a few more details about the benefits of geothermal:

  • Energy efficiency: Geothermal is very energy efficient, which can save you money on your energy bills. In fact, geothermal systems can save you up to 50% on your heating and cooling costs.
  • Improved home comfort: A geothermal system provides a consistent level of comfort throughout the year, regardless of the outside temperature. That means it can also be used to heat your home in the winter. Instead of pumping the hot air out of your home, it extracts the heat from the ground and pumps it inside, making it a great solution for year-round comfort.
  • Environmentally sound: Geothermal is a renewable energy source, so it is good for the environment. Because it does not require fossil fuels to operate, it does not produce any emissions, so it is a good choice for people who are concerned about air quality.
  • Long lifespan: Geothermal systems have a long lifespan, so you can expect to get many years of use out of them. In fact, the Department of Energy indicates that a properly installed and maintained geothermal system can last for more than 20 years.
  • Incentives: Often, government agencies and manufacturers provide rebates and incentives that can help make geothermal heat pump systems a more attractive choice for homeowners.

What are some of the concerns about geothermal heat pump systems?

While a geothermal system can be a great choice for homeowners looking to save energy and enjoy year-round comfort, there are a few concerns people have when it comes to choosing it. One issue is cost. Geothermal systems are often more expensive than their traditional counterparts, but it’s important to note that energy savings are often enough to offset initial costs. Another concern is space. It’s important to have a qualified HVAC contractor look at your property to ensure there is enough area to install a geothermal system.

Can Stafford Mechanical Services tell me more about geothermal systems?

We can! At Stafford Mechanical, we’re pleased to offer our customers geothermal installation, maintenance, and repair. We can help you decide if a geothermal system is right for your home, and make sure you get the services you need after installation.

How Do I Know If I Need a New Air Conditioning System?

couple is feeling the heat under an AC system that is not working properlyOnce the good old summertime rolls in, many people rely on the cool comfort of air conditioning. Your air conditioning system works hard all summer long to help keep your home at a comfortable temperature. And, if it is well-maintained, your air conditioning system should last a long time, up to 15 years. Unfortunately, the older an AC system gets, the harder it may be for it to keep up with the demands of cooling your home.

Usually, you’ll begin to see some telltale signs that will let you know that it may be time to consider a new air conditioning system. In this article, we’ll talk about some of the things to look for if you suspect your AC is on its way out, and how Stafford Mechanical Services can help you when it comes time to replace your system. Keep reading to learn more!

Signs Your AC System May Need Replacement

Nobody wants to think about the expense of having to replace an air conditioning system, but the truth is, it can end up costing you more money in the long run to keep an old, outdated system going. Here are a few ways to tell if your system may need to be replaced:

  1. Your energy bills keep increasing. AC systems use energy to operate, and as such you can expect that your utility bills may increase during the summer months. But if you’ve noticed a dramatic spike in your energy bills this summer, there’s a good chance that your air conditioning system is using more energy than it once did to do the same job.
  2. Your system’s refrigerant is expensive to replace. Older systems often develop refrigerant leaks, and your technician will need to recharge it so the system can work properly. If your system uses an older refrigerant, like R-22, it can be very costly to recharge, and may even be impossible.
  3. Your AC is not effectively cooling your home. As air conditioning systems age, it becomes harder for them to provide the same level of cooling as they did when they were first installed. And, many homeowners change the layout of their homes, convert unused rooms into living quarters, or add space over the years – and that means the AC system is often no longer the proper size.
  4. Your system is making unusual noises and/or you notice strange odors. When components inside your AC system are breaking down, you might notice squealing or grinding sounds coming from your unit. You may also notice foul odors that smell like melting plastic or burning rubber. If you notice any of these sounds or odors, you should turn off your system and call a professional.
  5. Repairs are needed more frequently and have become more expensive. Older systems may need repairs on a more frequent basis, as components within the system age and succumb to wear and tear. System components like compressors can be very expensive if they need to be replaced. If the cost of the repair is more than 50 percent of the current value of your system, replacement is recommended.

As you can see, high energy use, expensive and hard-to-find refrigerants, and frequent, costly repairs can often outweigh the cost of replacing an air conditioning system. So, if you have an older system in your home that’s experiencing any of the above concerns, a replacement may be in order.

How can Stafford Mechanical Services help?

At Stafford Mechanical Services, we provide a comprehensive list of air conditioning services, including repair, maintenance, and new system installation. We can help troubleshoot your AC system and help you decide if repair or replacement is more feasible. And, if you decide to replace your old system, we will go over all your options with you and will provide you with expert installation of the quality system you choose.

Staying Safe When Outdoor Air Quality Is Poor

woman stands inside home looking out at smoke from wildfiresWith the recent wildfires in Canada and the subsequent effect they’re having on our local environment, you may be wondering what you can do to stay safe when the outdoor air quality is poor. It isn’t as simple as staying indoors until the poor air quality warnings expire, because that outdoor air can find its way into your home and cause issues for you and your family. If you’re worried about the current air quality and want to safeguard yourself and your family, here are a few simple suggestions you can follow.

  1. Wear a mask if you must go outdoors. Masks can help you keep from inhaling pollutants, like pollen or smoggy air. Make sure the mask fits tightly around your nose and mouth.
  2. Keep your windows closed. While it’s always tempting to open windows this time of year, on days when the air quality outside is poor it’s a good idea to keep them shut – and keep the pollutants outside.
  3. Avoid running window fans and AC units. This can bring polluted air indoors. And while you can’t see the particles in the air caused by fires or pollinating plants and trees, they’re there, and can easily enter your home via your fans or air conditioners.
  4. Check the air quality regularly. As we’ve seen recently, the air quality can change dramatically over the course of just a few hours. The AirNow website has up-to-date information as well as air quality forecasts, so you can plan accordingly.
  5. Consider air purification. An air purifier can help to remove pollutants from the air in your home. You can buy portable air purifiers at most larger department and home improvement stores. If you or a family suffers from respiratory conditions, you may want to talk to an HVAC professional about whole-home air quality solutions.

Of course, you can always count on Stafford Mechanical Services to help you should you have any additional concerns about the quality of the air in your home. Just give us a call at (860) 684-9485 and we will be more than happy to help you.

Dreading the Thought of Window AC? Ductless Cooling is an Option.

Happy young lady regulate climate at home using ac deviceMost people love the idea of coming home to cool comfort once the temperatures start to heat up outside. Nothing beats the heat like an air-conditioned home, but for homeowners who do not have ductwork in their homes, central AC is not an option. Oftentimes, people with boiler, baseboard, or other forms of radiant heat rely on window air conditioning to keep them cool.

Unfortunately, there are a few drawbacks when it comes to window AC. As anyone who has used a window unit can attest, they can be very noisy. And, they can be inefficient, especially older models that use outdated types of refrigerant. The good news is, there is an option for people who would like to ditch their window AC units and enjoy cool comfort – ductless air conditioning.

Learn more about ductless air conditioning systems.

You may have heard of ductless AC, but not really be sure what it is or how it can benefit your home. Ductless air conditioning is pretty much what the name implies – air conditioning that does not require ductwork to keep your home cool. And, there are some real advantages to choosing ductless AC for your home.

  • Energy Efficiency: Most ductless systems use heat pump technology in order to keep your home comfortable. Heat pumps offer highly efficient home comfort, and that can help you save on your energy bills.
  • Ease of Installation: When you have ductless cooling installed in your home, you won’t have to wait days to enjoy the benefits. Ductless systems can usually be installed in one or two days. Not to mention, they require minimal construction – the indoor and outdoor units are connected via a small-diameter conduit – so only a small hole will need to be drilled.
  • Quiet Comfort: Most people who have ductless systems in their homes remark about the quiet operation – many compare it to a whisper. That means you can enjoy better comfort without the distraction of a loud AC unit running in the background, which is typical with window AC.
  • Discreet Installation: Ductless systems are typically installed high on a wall or in the ceiling, so they won’t take up living space. You won’t have to worry about your view being obstructed as you would with window AC or loss of floor space like you would with a portable unit.
  • Year-Round Comfort: One of the main benefits of ductless is that often, one unit can provide both cooling and heating. This makes them a great choice if you’re also looking to replace old, inefficient electric baseboard heating.

Have You Scheduled Your AC Maintenance? Here Are 5 Reasons Why You Should.

For many homeowners, that means ensuring that their air conditioning system is ready to keep them cool once the higher temperatures hit.

There are a few things you can do to ensure your AC system is prepared for the cooling season, such as changing dirty filters and removing any debris or vegetation from around the outdoor part of your unit. However, it’s also important to have a professional technician give your system a checkup on an annual basis. In this article, we’ll talk about why air conditioning maintenance is important, and how Stafford Mechanical Services can help.

5 Reasons to Get AC Maintenance Each Spring

Often, homeowners wonder if getting air conditioning maintenance each year is really necessary. There are many good reasons to make AC maintenance a yearly thing, which we’ve explained below:

  1. System Efficiency: Over the course of the summer, your AC system likely worked hard to keep your home cool and comfortable. When your system operates, dirt and debris can collect inside and around the moving parts. The gunk that accumulates can make your system have to work harder – and that can affect energy efficiency. Annual maintenance helps ensure your system is clean and running at the best possible efficiency.
  2. System Effectiveness: A dirty, poorly maintained system loses effectiveness over time, and it starts to become harder for the AC to keep your home cool and comfortable. You may notice that some rooms aren’t as cool as others, or that your energy bills are steadily increasing while your system isn’t performing as well as it used to. Maintenance helps prevent your system from declining in effectiveness.
  3. Manufacturer’s Warranty: Many times, equipment manufacturers require regular maintenance in order to keep the warranty in place. Failure to do so may cause your equipment’s warranty to become void, and that can mean out-of-pocket costs on expensive repairs or replacement down the road that would have been covered otherwise.
  4. Indoor Air Quality: As we’ve mentioned, AC systems often collect dirt, dust, and debris through the course of regular use. Because these particles build up in your system, they end up circulating through the air in your home whenever your air conditioner runs – and that can negatively impact the quality of the air you and your family are breathing. Maintenance helps ensure that your system and your filter are clean.
  5. Longer Life: When an air conditioning system does not receive the maintenance it needs, it may not last as long. Seasonal maintenance helps to ensure that the system is clean, operating effectively and efficiently, and all parts are in good working order. Any small problems are often discovered before they become larger ones, too – and that can help you save on a costly repair or replacement.

Do You Need a New Heating System for Your Home?

Man on the sofa at home with winter coatToo often, homeowners discover that their home’s heating system isn’t working as it should during the coldest parts of winter. It can be discouraging to discover that you might need a new furnace or boiler when the temperatures outside are at their chilliest, but replacing a failing heating system can be the best choice for you and your family for several reasons.

First and foremost, a failing heating system can become a safety concern. Additionally, you might be uncomfortable and cold, or you might be paying way more on your utility bills than necessary. In this article, we’ll help you identify some reasons why updating your heating system could be a great decision, and how Stafford Mechanical Services, Inc. can help. Keep reading to learn more!

5 Reasons Why New Heating Equipment May Be a Good Choice

Replacing major equipment like your home’s heating system can be an expense. You’ll want to be sure your system really does need replacement, and you’ll want to choose new equipment that’s built to keep your family comfortable now and for years to come. So how do you know if you need new heating equipment? Here are five reasons that may help you decide:

  • Your current system is more than 10 years old. Once your heating system hits the 10-year mark, it often becomes much less effective and efficient when it comes to keeping your home warm. This can be especially true for equipment that has not been properly maintained. Not to mention, heating equipment technology is always improving, so today’s units are much more efficient than their older counterparts.
  • You’ve made changes to your home since installing your current system. Have you added to your home or converted areas like garages and basements into usable living space? If so, that means you’ve added to the square footage of your home as well – and your current heating system might not be able to efficiently meet the demands. In this instance, you may not have to update your entire heating system, though – adding ductless heating to the new spaces can help.
  • Your heating system is no longer under warranty. Once your system falls out of manufacturer warranty, it might be a good idea to at the very least start thinking about replacing it. Unfortunately, once a system is out of warranty, you will have to pay for any new replacement parts it might need, which can start to add up with older systems.
  • Your heating system is not very energy efficient. If your utility bills have steadily been on the rise, it’s probably a good time to think about replacing your current heating system. As heating equipment ages, it becomes less efficient year over year. Older systems may not have been manufactured to be as efficient as their current counterparts. And, older electric baseboard heating can be replaced by much more efficient modern equipment, such as ductless heating.
  • You’ve had to make a lot of expensive repairs. If the repairs you’ve had to make to your heating system have really started to add up, it may be more cost-effective in the long run to replace your heating system. If the cost of repairs is 50 percent or more than your system is currently worth, replacement is very likely the more economical option.

Indoor Air Too Dry? Time to Humidify!

woman itching dry skin at homeWhen the winter weather rolls around and the chillier temperatures creep in, people rely on their home heating system to keep their homes toasty and comfy. If you have a forced-air heating system, such as a furnace or a centralized heat pump, you may have noticed that while the temperature of your home is comfortable, the air in your home might be drier than usual.

That’s because forced-air heating tends to dry out the indoor air, and that can cause a whole host of problems for you and your family. In this article, we’ll talk about how to identify if the air in your home is too dry – and how Stafford Mechanical Services, Inc. can help. Keep reading to learn more!

5 Symptoms of Overly Dry Indoor Air

  1. Creaky Floors & Fixtures: Have you noticed your wood floors or furniture creaking? Do your doors make a groaning sound when they open and close? This is probably due to the wood drying out, which means you need better home humidification.
  2. Flaky, Itchy Skin: If you’re dealing with some seriously dry skin this winter, it can be a sure sign that the air in your home is not providing the proper moisture levels. Lotions can help, but having the right humidity level is important, too.
  3. Irritated Eyes, Nose, & Throat: Dry indoor air not only can cause your skin to become dehydrated; it can also affect your mucous membranes. Itchy, watery eyes and nose, and sore throat, can often be attributed to an overly dry environment.
  4. Excessive Static Electricity: Have you noticed laundry clinging, static shock when walking across the carpet, or flyaway hair? Static electricity is more prevalent in a dry environment, so if these symptoms are a problem in your home, the air is likely too dry.
  5. Cracking or Peeling Paint: When the air in your home is too dry, it can affect painted walls, moldings, and fixtures. Paint may crack or start to peel, causing you the expense of having to repaint. By adding moisture to your indoor air, you can help avoid that.

How can Stafford Mechanical Services, Inc. help with my humidification needs?

If you think the air in your home is too dry, Stafford Mechanical can help. We can help identify if this is the case, and then assist you with the solutions you need for improved indoor air quality. We will likely suggest a central, whole-house humidifier, which is the easiest and most effective way to help raise your home’s moisture level. Using the air from your furnace and your air ducts, whole-house humidification systems send water vapor through your home – helping to eliminate the symptoms mentioned above and allowing you and your family to enjoy improved home comfort.

We only install humidifiers from the best brands in the industry, because we want you to enjoy a more comfortable home environment now and for years to come. Our technicians are fully licensed and factory trained to provide you with professional installation services completed to your total satisfaction. When you need improved home humidification, trust the professionals at Stafford Mechanical Services, Inc. to help you. You may contact us via phone at (860) 684-9485. We look forward to helping you get the humidifier you need for improved home comfort.
