Does a Tankless Water Heater Need Maintenance?

March 6th, 2023

One of the big benefits of having a tankless water heater instead of a standard storage tank water heater is that a tankless water heater can last longer and require fewer repairs during its extended service life. This is because tankless systems have reduced stress from the lack of a tank and only expend energy when there’s demand for water rather than the steady energy use of tank water heaters.

Unfortunately, these benefits can sometimes lead homeowners into believing that a tankless water heater requires less maintenance. “It shouldn’t need maintenance every year. Maybe every other. Or even only every three years.” But this is absolutely not true! Tankless water heaters are precision devices that require expert regular care to make sure they stay precise. If you want to avoid water heater repair as well as an early replacement for your tankless water heater in Fresno, CA, don’t forget to schedule maintenance for it each year with our trained professionals.

What Does a Furnace Limit Switch Do?

November 28th, 2022

Gas furnaces work on a basic principle: lit gas flames heat air that is blown through the furnace and into the rooms through ductwork. But gas furnaces are complex devices that have several safety features and mechanisms that allow them to work correctly and without creating hazards. 

One of the key components for the operation of a furnace is the furnace limit switch. You don’t need to know all the details about this part, but understanding the basics will help you know more about how your furnace works—and why it sometimes doesn’t work.

Benefits of Having a Heat Pump Combined With Solar Energy

November 14th, 2022

A heat pump is a type of HVAC system that uses the same refrigerant-based operation as a central air conditioner, except it can reverse the direction it operates so that it can work to heat a home as well as cool it. Using a heat pump can help a home save money on its heating costs, since it consumes less energy to move heat rather than generate it the way a furnace does.

No other type of air-source heat pump provides as many benefits as one combined with solar power. With a solar-powered heat pump installed in your home, you’ll have your year-round comfort needs taken care of with one system that runs primarily from the free and renewable energy of the sun.

If you’re interested in installing a heat pump in Fresno, CA, here are some of the excellent benefits of using a solar-powered one:
