What is a flue liner?
A flue lining in a masonry chimney is defined as “A clay, ceramic, or medal conduit installed inside of a chimney, intended to contain the combustion products, direct them to the outside atmosphere, and protect the chimney walls from heat and corrosion.”  Although building codes vary from state to state, and city to city, in the DeKalb area flue liners are required to meet code.Flue liners are required when upgrading your furnace to an 80% AFUE because there is less heat going up the masonry chimney and when the temperature reaches around 130 degrees the flue gases turn from a gas to a liquid that is corrosive to your chimney.  If you have a 90% or greater efficiency...

Central Air Conditioning Maintenance
Ideally, we should be able to turn on our central heat and air units and have them deliver exactly what we want, at the temperature we want, all day long. Most of the time this is the case. What is difficult to discern is when the HVAC unit is not running efficiently. Sure, it´s on and putting out heat or cold air, but is it working too hard? Think of your HVAC unit like a car. It has a motor and runs off a certain type of energy. In the same way that you change your car´s oil, spark plugs, recharge the battery, etc, these HVAC motors also need regular attention to run efficiently and effectively. With proper maintenance, your air conditioner should last 15-20 years, and can...

Protecting Our Enviroment.
Today any central air conditioner or heat pump manufactured in North America must contain R-410A refrigerant if the unit is charged during the manufacturing process. The refrigerant, R-410A, was developed in response to an agreement between numerous countries (known as the Montreal Protocol) that stated those countries around the world would move towards discontinuing the use of hydrochlorofluorcabon-based (HCFC) refrigerants. HCFC’s are widely accepted to be ozone-depleting chemical compounds. R-410A refrigerant, a non-HCFC bases refrigerant, is chlorine free. We need to reduce our carbon footprint. One way of accomplishing that goal is energy efficient equipment and environmentally...

The answer to that question how much do you want to spend? The next question is how much particles/dust do you want to remove from the air? You get what you pay for, and the best way to understand what your getting for your money is to see how they are rated. Air filters are rated by MERV ratings. The chart below explains how they perform. The most important...

Eliminate Hot and Cold Spots
Most homeowners think that having areas in their home that are too hot or too cold is just something they have to live with. But we believe the only thing you need to live with is comfort.Forced air zoning systems work by having dampers installed in your ductwork that open and close as needed based on each zone’s thermostat settings when a zone doesn’t need to be heated or cooled, the dampers close to save energy and maximise comfort elsewhere.With wireless technology today your thermostat’s can be installed where ever you prefer or there are also is portable theromstats available to go where you go. It’s like a laptop computer with a wireless router to provide more...
