Hot water heating options for your home

Is your hot water heater on the fritz? Is it just not producing the way you want it too or maybe not the way you need it to be? Well there are many reasons why your hot water heater in your home just doesn’t seem to keep up with your needs and expectations whether it be because of a addition to the number of people in your household using hot water, or maybe you added a hot water appliance to your home such as a dish washing machine or a new shower or shower head that allows for more hot water. Maybe its just that your hot water heater is just old and full of sludge and isn’t heating the water the way it is supposed too anymore.

If your hot water heating system has any leaks of water anywhere, high energy bills or unsatisfactory production is a tell tale sign that you need to start thinking about replacing your hot water heating system. Below are some of the options you have when replacing your hot water heating system:

Standard Hot Water Heater

The Standard Hot Water Heater

Standard hot water heater is usually the exact thing that you have if your home currently and is the cheapest way to get your hot water heating system back to the way you are used to. Standard hot water heaters are not the most cost efficient way to heat the water in your home but gets the job done. This option includes typical 30-40-75-100 gallon heaters. The higher the gallons needed the more expensive these get.

High Recovery Hot Water Heating
High Recovery Hot Water Heating

These types of hot water heating systems are nice when you need hot water fast and on demand. This hot water heating system has a neat feature built into it which is a exhaust fan motor built on the top the the system which allows the hot air the gas produces at the bottom of the equipment to cycle thru the heat exchanger faster allowing the water to heat up faster. This option is more expensive to install as there are special needs to be addressed when installing a high recovery hot water heating system like installing a electrical circuit to supply power to the “new” exhaust fan motor and the PVC discharge line going outside for proper venting. This option includes typical 30-40-75-100 gallon heaters. The higher the gallons needed the more expensive these get.

Tankless Hot Water Heater
Tankless Hot Water Heater

This option has become the most popular option for customers wanting hot water on demand while saving alot of space by removing the old huge hot water tank and replacing it with a 2′ X 2′ wall mounted high recovery tankless hot water heater. This option is not the cheapest way to go but is relatively inexpensive depending on what type of water heater you need. Electric or Gas? Tankless water heaters come in a variety of GPM (gallons per minute) for all sizes of households. The more GPM typically means the more expensive the equipment.

Boiler Maintenance

Having your boiler serviced on an annual basis not only can save you money, but it can also reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and costly repairs of faulty boilers.

Why service my Boiler?
It is important to get any boiler serviced regularly to ensure they are not only safe, but efficient as well. Having a regularly serviced boiler can reduce your fuel costs by up to 10% annually.
+Appliances that are not properly maintained can emit carbon monoxide, exposure to which can be fatal.
+Any faults or problems with your boiler can be identified early on, reducing the chance of expensive repairs further down the line.

Boiler Service Checklist:
When undergoing a boiler service, you should expect your engineer to carry out the following:

Stripping down and cleaning the boiler heat ex-changer.
Cleaning the oil burner.
Inspecting your boiler for wear and tear.
Renewing the nozzle and filter if needed.
Re-assembly and testing to OFTEC requirements.
Checking the condition of the oil tank to ensure it meets Environmental Law regulations
The autumn season can be quite busy for boiler services, as people switch their heating systems back on. When arranging your boiler service, the summer months may be a better option, especially since you will need to turn off your boiler an hour before the service, leaving you without heating for a short time.

Benefits of Furnace Maintenance

Every year, at about this time, you probably receive several adds from different Houstonarea heating and cooling companies telling you to schedule a furnace tune-up. What many companies fail to tell you (and the reason most of those offers are ignored) is exactly why furnace maintenance is essential. Here are a few things about the importance of furnace maintenance.

Insuring proper airflow:
During the furnace tune-up, the heating technician should check your heating system to ensure it is receiving the proper airflow. Restricted or limited airflow places an unnecessary strain on your furnace that can lead to increased repairs and a shorter lifespan.

Keeping You Safe:

Furnaces burn fuel to produce heat. The combustion process must be precise to maintain efficiency, and safety.  A small simple problem can lead to gas leaking into your home or dangerous carbon monoxide levels. Don’t take a chance with the health and safety of your family.

Reducing repairs:
Every winter we receive calls from Houston-area residents with heating problems that could have been easily prevented with regular maintenance. A furnace tune-up not only includes cleaning that keeps your furnace running efficiently, but it also catches small problems before they turn into major repairs.

Getting a furnace tune-up now, before the weather is cold, is a wise decision that keeps you, and your family, warm. Rather than waiting for a repairman during the winter in a cold home without heat. It is also much cheaper.

Improving energy efficiency:
A furnace tune-up should include, the cleaning and inspection, of the furnace burner and heat exchange. This will keep your furnace running efficiently all winter.

Maintaining manufacturer’s warranty:
If your heater is under a manufacturer’s warranty, it is especially important for you to get an annual furnace tune-up. Most manufacturer’s stipulate that their warranty becomes void if the heater is not regularly maintained. A furnace tune-up can satisfy that requirement and maintain your warranty.

Furnace Maintenance Service Houston, TX

Heating systems are usually trouble-free and pretty easy to maintain. Efficient operation is a function of good regular maintenance.

No matter what type of furnace you have, there are several things you can do to keep your heating system in top condition. In this article, we will tell you how to service and troubleshoot your furnace, regardless of the type.

When a heating or cooling system malfunctions, any one of its three components — heat/cold source, distribution system, or thermostat — may be causing the problem. If the furnace or air conditioner doesn’t run, the malfunction is probably at the source. The furnace or air conditioner may have lost power. Fuel may not be reaching the unit. If the fuel is gas or oil, it may not be igniting. If the furnace or air conditioner turns on but the warm or cool air isn’t reaching the rooms of your home, the problem is likely to be the blower or distribution system. And a bad or faulty control, or thermostat, could keep the system from turning on or could cause it to turn on and off repeatedly. Whatever the problem, start with the simplest procedures. In most cases, all it takes is patience and common sense.

Before you start work on a heating or cooling system, take these preliminary steps: Make sure the unit is receiving power. Look for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers at the main entrance panel. Some furnaces have a separate power entrance, usually located at a different panel near the main entrance panel. Some furnaces have fuses mounted in or on the unit. If the unit has a reset button, marked RESET and near the motor housing, wait 30 minutes to let the motor cool, then press the button. If the unit still doesn’t start, wait 30 minutes and press the reset button again. Repeat at least once more.  If the unit has a separate power switch, make sure the switch is turned on. Check to make sure the thermostat is properly set. If necessary, raise (or, for an air conditioner, lower) the setting 5º. If the unit uses gas, check to make sure the gas supply is turned on and the pilot light is lit. If it uses oil, check to make sure there is an adequate supply of oil.  There are also several important safety factors to remember:

Before doing any work on any type of heating or cooling system, make sure all power to the system is turned off. At the main electrical entrance panel, trip the circuit breaker or remove the fuse that controls the power to the unit. If you’re not sure which circuit the system is on, remove the main fuse or trip the main circuit breaker to cut off all power to the house. Some furnaces have a separate power entrance, usually at a different panel near the main entrance panel. If a separate panel is present, remove the fuse or trip the breaker there.  If the fuse blows or the circuit trips repeatedly when the furnace or air conditioner turns on, there is a problem in the electrical system. In this case, do not try to fix the furnace. Call a professional service person. If the unit uses gas and there is a smell of gas in your home, do not try to shut off the gas or turn any lights on or off. Get out of the house, leaving the door open, and immediately call the gas company or the fire department to report a leak. Do not reenter your home.  To keep your heating and cooling systems in top shape, have them professionally serviced once a year. The best time to have a furnace serviced is at the end of the heating season. Because this is the off-season, you can often get a discount, and service is likely to be prompt. Have your air conditioner checked at the same time.  The heat/cold source is the most complicated part of the heating and cooling system, and it’s the part most likely to suffer from neglect. Problems in this area may also lead to distribution problems. Whatever heat/cold source your system uses, give it regular attention to prevent problems.  Dirt is the biggest enemy of your home’s heating and cooling system. It can waste fuel and drastically lower efficiency. Dirt affects all three basic components of the system, so cleaning is the most important part of regular maintenance. Lubrication and belt adjustment at the furnace are also important.

To keep your system working properly, there are some simple general procedures you can follow. To start, get a professional to clean your furnace. We’ll show you how by clicking here.
