Transform your Sunroom!

By | HVAC, Residential

Staying comfortable year round

A sunroom is a great addition to any home giving you a place to enjoy the sunshine and landscape without being subject to harsh weather. The temperature in these rooms, however, isn’t always easily controlled. Given that sunrooms aren’t normally linked to your homes central heating and cooling system, it is necessary you have a plan for temperature control.

Mini Split for the Win!

In our opinion the best way to combat adverse temperatures in your sunroom would be with a mini split unit. A mini split system is one where you can control the temperature in individual rooms. Thus giving you the versatility you need to set the temperature of your room to your liking. A system like this has two main components, an outdoor compressor and an indoor air-handler, and installation is a breeze! Another benefit to mini split systems is that, unlike central air and your furnace, you can shut off the air to unused rooms without causing your system to overwork its self. Mini split systems are quiet, and blend well into any room of your home. Wondering what it would cost you to have a mini split system put in? Harold’s free estimate service is just a phone call (or webform) away!

Small Change = Big Impact

Airflow is key!

Air flow through the sunroom will relieve heat, so having ventilation openings high in the room will help it escape. You may also want to place fans near the floor, this ensures hot air pockets do not linger in your room.

Window tints

At certain points in the day the light will be quite intense beaming through the windows. You can combat this with window tints! Window tint will provide additional shade keeping your room cool. While also providing privacy and protection for your furniture from sun fade.

Blinds

Window dressings, such as honeycomb shades add an extra layer of insulation to keep your sunroom warm in the winter and cool in the summer. These shades are considered energy efficient and provide superior light control.

Weather Stripping

Weatherstripping your sunroom will help reduce drafts, and block energy loss through windows and doors. Weatherstripping can also aid in energy savings, you may just want to do all of your homes windows!

Carbon Monoxide-The Silent Killer

By | Boiler, Furnace, Heating, Residential

Carbon Monoxide-The Silent Killer!

This Boiler was in need of MAJOR Repair- Improper Combustion Caused the Sooting of the boiler to fill This Gentlemen’s House with Carbon Monoxide. His Boiler was leaking water as well causing the burners to completely rot out. Natural Gas was pouring from the end of the burners, lighting, then (thankfully) the water was putting out the flame. Great to save from an explosion, but horrible for the headaches.

Way Too Much Carbon Dioxide-

This house was filled with over 3000 parts per million. If This Gentlemen’s home was not loose as it is, he was at a level that could cause death in less than an hour-Check Out This Chart-
co chart

The Experts say that it is colorless and odorless, however, a well trained HVAC Technician can detect the odor of improper combustion, often the leading culprit of CO Poisoning. These can be acidic taste on your tongue, black powdery substances on window sills, and most often, complaints of headaches, nausea, and of being tired all of the time. 

Why Wait, Have Your System Checked out for Carbon Monoxide Today!

Checking flue pipes, just as important as checking filters

By | Furnace, Heating, Residential

By

This time of year everyone is getting ready for the upcoming holidays, the last thing on anyone’s mind is the small white pipes (flue pipe) coming off the side of their house and what their function is. Little did you know their function is extremely important to the well being of your furnace and most importantly, the safety and health of your family. The Rochester area and the surrounding counties have just been hit with large amounts of snow, which is exactly why you need to be aware of why can happen to your furnace if the flue pipe is covered and blocked by snow and ice. The highly trained technicians at High Performance Heating have laid out some suggestions for keeping your furnace running at optimum efficiency. But if your flue pipe has been covered for some time, then we highly recommend having our technicians service your furnace before something costly happens and you are stuck without heat during this very cold winter. If you do end up without heat in the middle of the night, don’t fear the cold, we are available 24/7 for emergency calls, so don’t hesitate to call us,585-426-3004.

Leaving the flue pipe covered with snow can be more detrimental than you realize. When you leave snow covering the flue pipe, it could stop your furnace from running all together because of a safety switch that will shut your furnace off. It also causes the exhaust to be forced back or recirculated into your home through the fresh air intake. Which is very dangerous and not only can it harm your family but it will damage your furnace and could leave you without heat on one of these frigid nights. The exhaust that is vented out of the flue pipe is extremely acidic, when it is properly vented outside into the air, it dissipates within minutes and is gone. But when it keeps being recirculated through your furnace, it just gets more and more acidic and will start to damage your heat exchanger, which could leave you without heat. Another issue from having a blocked flue pipe is that the exhaust gases that are suppose to be vented outside are now being forced back into your home. So not only do you have acidic exhaust gases damaging your heat exchanger and the rest of the equipment inside your furnace, the exhaust gases are also leaking into your basement around your furnace and will start to leak into the rest of your house. Some of the exhaust gases is carbon monoxide, it is impossible to detect unless you have a carbon monoxide detector, which we highly recommend having because carbon monoxide is orderless, tasteless and colorless. You won’t know it’s there until it’s to late and by then someone in your family could already be affected by it.

Getting through the holiday season can be stressful and the last thing you want to do when your outside in the freezing cold shoveling your driveway is to walk around your home to clear off a few pipes. But in the end, that couple of extra minutes you spend clearing off the flue pipes could not only save you a ton of money in furnace repairs, but it will keep your family safe from breathing in dangerous exhaust gases. If you have noticed that snow has been covering your flue pipes, give High Performance Heating a call at 585-426-3004 to come service your furnace so you can ensure that you will not be without heat and your family is safe and healthy.
