High Efficiency Furnace

Posted on February 17, 2015 at 8:55 PM Comments comments ()
Is it time to upgrade your furnace? Did you know that we replaced a twenty year old furnace with a new 96 per cent efficiency furnace. The old furnace had to be condemned because the heat exchanger was bad. It was first noticed when there was a flame roll out and the flame was yellowish insted of solid blue.

A 96 per cent efficiency means that 96 cents of every dollar of energy gets used instead of sometimes as low as sixty cents. The unit used pvc for the exhaust vent!!! Water is a byproduct of combustion and hot exhaust usually makes it to evaporate outside. The exhaust on these units is so cool that the water condenses and must be drained off. We know how to install these and can put in the fanciest thermostat you have ever seen. Call set up and appointment today and be comfortable year round. Click here  

Selling a house with a new heat pump or a/c

Posted on October 6, 2014 at 6:19 PM Comments comments ()
Looking back on my life's decisions, I will have to say that purchasing repos and reselling them was one of my most interesting experiences. I learned a lot. Some folks think a kitchen sells the house, and it does. Some say that the bathroom sells the house, or the staging of the living room. But I can say that a new a/c or heat pump will make the sale easier, quicker and you will feel better when you see the owners months later. Whether they say it and whether they know it, everyone wants their a/c and furnace to work and they often buy a home warranty to insure it. Remember, most new units have their own warranties!

What is going on with this furnace?

We have had some pleasant weather in Birmingham and I have finally got some time to write. I hope you all had a nice pleasant summer. I know many are suffering in this economy and I wish I could help more. I can give a good price and I can patch them up when we need to.

This weekend we installed a new system and I took the old unit to scrap heaven. But before I took it, I met with my number one scrap specialist....my son and EPA certified R.N. David. Well, we took this old furnace apart screw by screw and talked about every single wire, part, and screw. What a complicated engineering piece a furnace is!!!  We soon came to the conclusion that repairing some of these units would really be a waste of money because when you fixed one part, another could be ready for the bone yard.
The new unit the client selected was a two stage furnace and was purported to be very energy efficient. Gas can be efficient!! But the new shiny outside unit was a marvel with a scroll compressor and that new refrigerant that is mandated in order to save the universe. It was so pretty that if I had put one in for myself, I would be inviting the neighbors and friends to look at it as if it were one of those new BMW's. But the best thing is that it was sized right and will heat and cool and no one will ever think about it again. Set the thermostat and let it go.
These units my folks are getting have ten year warranties on most everything. This one had a lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger! 
You might ask about the details. The investment for this five ton unit was less than five thousand dollars. I think if you add up the electricity and fuel savings plus the repair bills, plus adding pounds of refrigerant at fifty to one hundred dollars a pound like I hear about, it is an easy decision to replace.
