As fall settles over Gladewater, Texas, it’s time to start thinking about your winter heating needs. The first thing on your agenda should be scheduling a fall maintenance visit for your HVAC system — especially if anyone in your family suffers from asthma or allergies.

Problems Will Be Found and Fixed Sooner

By the time fall comes around, your heating system will benefit from an inspection after going unused for months. During the period of dormancy, dust likely collected, mold grew, or other allergens could have built up in the system. During your maintenance visit, one of our HVAC technicians will check each component of your system, clean parts you can’t, and fix any problems. That way, you won’t have any nasty surprises when you turn on your heating system.

You’ll Get Personalized Recommendations

It is a good idea to take advantage of the experience and knowledge of your HVAC technician, especially regarding indoor air quality concerns in your home and how best to address them. After taking a look at your HVAC system, one of our technicians should be able to give you personalized recommendations for improving the indoor air quality in your home. Maybe you need to schedule a duct cleaning or install a whole-home dehumidifier, or maybe you just need to change your filter more often. Either way, it’s helpful to get an expert opinion tailored to your situation.

It’s the Perfect Time to Ask Questions

When you have kids with asthma, you spend a lot of time and effort looking for ways to make your home healthier. Chances are, you have a lot of questions, and during a fall HVAC checkup is the perfect time to ask them. If our technicians don’t mention something you’ve been wondering about, take the time to ask.

Keep Your Home Comfortable with a Ductless HVAC System

Keep Your Home Comfortable with a Ductless HVAC System

A ductless HVAC system, also called a mini-split or multi-split system, has an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, similar to conventional systems. Instead of ductwork, air travels through a small conduit. This saves energy and makes leaks less likely. Ductless systems also prevent drafts and uncomfortably warm or cool areas in your White Oak, Texas, home. A ductless HVAC system can keep you comfortable with high indoor air quality, quiet operation, and zoning options.

High Indoor Air Quality

Leaks in ductwork can spread mold, dust, pollen, pet dander, and other contaminants around your home. You’ll have higher indoor air quality with a ductless system. Many ductless HVAC systems come with multi-stage filtration to remove allergens and bacteria from the air. This prevents unpleasant allergy symptoms, asthma attacks, and many other health problems.

Quiet Operation

Ductless systems are much quieter than traditional HVAC systems because they don’t have to move air through long, winding ducts. You also eliminate the chance of insects or small animals making a home in ductwork. The fans are smaller and quieter, and the sound of moving air is less noticeable.

Zoning

With a ductless system that has more than one indoor unit, you can set the temperature differently for each area or zone. The approximately 50 feet of tubing provides many options as far as placement is concerned. Each indoor unit has its own thermostat, and you can control many zoning systems with remotes or programmable thermostats. Zoning lowers your utility bills because you don’t have to heat or cool rooms that aren’t occupied. You can make sure your family is comfortable by setting each zone to its ideal temperature. For example, during the cooling season, a kitchen may not need as much heat as a living room with large windows.
