Is a Heat Pump Worth the Extra Cost?

November 13th, 2023

New technology always costs more to install than older technology that’s been on the market for longer. This is just a simple fact of economics. When heat pumps were initially invented, they were only used by niche homeowners who could afford pretty high installation bills. And even then, only a few technicians knew how to install these systems. Everyone else would just opt for a gas furnace or a central air conditioner.

But times are changing, and so is the technology. Heat pumps are becoming more widely available and manufacturers are leaning into the technology, meaning you can get one for a cheaper price than you could a few years ago. Is it finally time to make the switch and invest in a heat pump installation in Tulsa, OK?

Or should you just stick with your tried and tested gas furnace? Well, it’s a little complicated, but we think you’ll know what’s best after reading this blog.

A Full Duct Cleaning Breakdown

September 18th, 2023

Duct cleaning in Sapulpa, OK sometimes gets a bad wrap. It’s not as cool or complex as something like air conditioner repair or duct installation, and it generally sounds like something that you could do on your own. Heck, with enough ingenuity and a trip to the hardware store, you could probably clear up the dust and debris in your air ducts on your own, right?

Well, not exactly. In fact, just trying to clean your air ducts on your own could be a huge waste of money and end up doing some serious harm that costs you a lot more money to fix. Duct cleaning is a specialized service for a reason, and it’s just not something that everyone can do.

But if you skip duct cleaning, you’ll also see a deterioration in your home’s efficiency and air quality, which means you can’t really skip it either. So, let’s talk about why it’s a good investment and might be perfect for your home.

Ground-Source or Ai-Source Heat Pumps: Which to Choose?

September 4th, 2023

There are many types of heat pumps in existence, many of which don’t really make sense for residents of our area. For instance, hydronic heat pumps use the heat energy of natural bodies of water to keep a space warm. But depending on where you live, you might not have immediate access to a lake or a river, which makes this type of heat pump very impractical.

However, there are two main types of heat pumps that are very practical for homeowners in our area. These are ground-source heat pumps (also known as geothermal heat pumps), and air-source heat pumps, which are usually referred to as conventional heat pumps.

Each of these systems draws its heat energy from a different place, and they both have their ups and downs, which we’ll get into down below. Just make sure you choose our team for your next heat pump installation in Sapulpa, OK!

August 7th, 2023

What Your Thermostat Setting Says About You

July 10th, 2023

Every single air conditioner is going to work differently. Sure, they’re all designed in factories to look and function the same, but they’re controlled by humans with different preferences and lifestyles. This means that your air conditioner is likely going to work a lot differently than your neighbor’s air conditioning system, and you might have some unique problems that nobody aside from a licensed professional can help you with.

So, let’s discuss the elephant in the room before we get into the specifics. We’re talking about your thermostat, the little device that communicates between you and your air conditioner. It’s going to be the difference between an air conditioner that’s stressed out and running in long cycles, and one that’s in perfect shape.

Everyone sets their thermostats differently, but there are some general guidelines we’d like to discuss. And if you’re at all frustrated with the functionality of your cooling, be sure to call our team for AC repair in Sapulpa, OK.

Everything to Know About Geothermal HVAC

Out of all the HVAC systems available, from ductless systems to central air conditioners, geothermal systems just sound the coolest, right? It’s no coincidence!

Geothermal technology has been around for a while but it’s just now reaching its stride. The gist behind it, as we’ll get into further below, is centered on the fact that the temperature just beneath the earth’s crust is extremely mild.

A geothermal system in Sapulpa, OK is just designed to bring those temperatures to where you can feel them. So, as we explain how this technology works, we hope some potential customers out there decide to call us and evaluate this as a viable option.
