Is it that time of year already?
Yes, it’s fall—or will be when you read this. That doesn’t mean an instant change in the weather, but it means the change is coming. Time to schedule the most important heating service in Akron, OH of all: an annual maintenance inspection and tune-up.
“Does it have to be annual?” you might ask. “I didn’t have any troubles with my heating system last year, so can I just skip it this time?”
The heater needs this service each year. In fact, you want your heating system to have it annually, even if you don’t know it right now. Below, we’ll explain why regular heating maintenance is both necessary and hugely beneficial.

The heat pump is a nifty invention based on a simple principle: What if you could cause an air conditioning system to run in reverse, so instead of removing heat from the indoor air and blowing it outside, it would remove heat from the outside air and blow it indoors. Presto! The air conditioner changes from cooling to heating.
Although it may be a simple concept, heat pumps need to have several special components built into them to allow them to shift from cooling a home to heating it. Below we’re going to look at the parts of a heat pump that make it different from an AC, the parts that let it work as both an air conditioner and a heater.

This can help you make some important decisions choices about your cooling system’s future.

Your home plumbing in Hartville, OH includes the water heater and the hot water lines. You probably couldn’t imagine a home plumbing system without some way to access hot water: many basic daily jobs would become far more difficult, if not impossible.

Sorry to break it to you, but your home likely has poor indoor air quality. We don’t know this for 100% certain, but poor IAQ is a major problem across the country in homes and commercial buildings. Because the design of modern homes emphasizes energy efficiency, they often have such “tight” construction that they don’t allow for fresh air circulation. Airborne pollutants from inside sources—and there are many—will start to build up indoors without any way to escape.
You don’t have to just live with bad IAQ. You can help improve the quality of the air you and your family breathe with both simple steps and help from our IAQ professionals. Let’s get into what you can do for healthier indoor air.
