Climate Control Heating & Cooling wants to help our neighbors in the KC area
If you are in the St Joseph area and you experienced recent flooding, you probably want to just get back to normal life as soon as possible. A lot of things are probably running through your mind like how you are going to clean up and how to repair water damage to your home. You may not realize this, but if your HVAC unit was submerged during the flood, you may have a whole list of other issues.
Sure, the outside of your air conditioner or furnace may look just the same as it did before the flood! It is highly likely that water-damaged HVAC equipment may not work or may not work for long after being flooded. Furnaces, heaters and boilers have gas valves and controls that are especially vulnerable to water damage. Even electric furnaces have coils that are susceptible to corrosion if flooded.
What should you do?
If you’re a homeowner in Kansas City, chances are that you’ve been using a ducted system.
These systems use ducts and vents to send cool and warm air through your home. They’re effective systems that have been used for decades.
However, there’s another option that just might change everything:
Ductless mini-split systems.
We’ve partnered up with Daikin, a company that offers some of the industry’s best warranties on ductless mini-split systems. If your new system doesn’t meet your expectations within one year after installation, they’ll be happy to resolve the issue at no cost (and that’s on top of a 12-year warranty).
That all being said, there’s plenty of reasons why you might want to switch from a ducted system to a ductless one:
“Comfort Bear, why are you clutching that furnace?” you may be asking. Well, you see, this furnace has been with me since the very beginning. And now, I’m suddenly being told that I have to replace it!
We’ve been through some intense winters together. In return, I vowed that I’d always be there for it: through all of its maintenance checks, through all of its repairs, every time it fails to start, even during that one time it triggered the carbon monoxide alarm…
Well, okay, maybe I’m being a bit sentimental. I guess it’s time to let go. When I think about it objectively, I suppose there are a lot of good reasons for knowing when to replace your furnace:
From extra layers of clothes, to candles, to only eating hot soup and drinking hot tea, or using space heaters in certain areas of the home and keeping the ceiling fan on, there have been many ways people have tried to reduce their heating bill and save money on their energy bills.
One of the first things we think of is energy efficiency, and if our HVAC system is Energy Star rated. Energy-efficient heating systems can absolutely help keep home heating energy bills under control, and the Department of Energy wants to see homeowners installing these kinds of heat pumps and central heating systems in place after an energy audit or home improvement project, which then allows homeowners to both see lower utility bills and have a positive impact on the environment.
There are many ways of saving money on heating costs, and you can achieve them with just a few Kansas City, MO HVAC services.
