The Wind Blows right through my House, what can I do?

Winter is a good time to inspect your home for leaks.  When it’s cold and the wind is blowing, walk around the inside of the exterior walls and feel for drafts and cold spots.  You may be able to find and fix the trouble spots yourself.  Caulk around windows and doors.  Spray foam large openings with Great Stuff.  Remember, every little bit helps.
There are professionals who can help if you are not able to see and seal the places where your home is not sealed or insulated properly.

Thinking about a good Winter Project?

It’s Janurary.  It gets dark early, it’s cold outside, and I start getting cabin fever about this time every year.  It makes me start looking around the house for a good project.  What about that Old Heating and Cooling System?  Last year I changed my old 10 SEER 1995 Heat Pump to a new high efficiency.   My electric bill is down around $100/month since I made that change.  Call Foothills Mechanical at 856-0030, we can offer advice and Options for higher energy efficiency on your heating and cooling system.  Your results could be the same.  But that’s not the only thing you could do.  What about more attic insulation, or just caulking up and sealing up your home.  These small projects could add up to $$$ saved on your energy bills.  Like to tackle a bigger project?  What about new doors and windows?

Question: When should I consider replacing my Air Conditioning System?

With some maintenance, an Air Conditioning System should last about 20 years.  They usually last a little longer than a Heat Pump, because the compressor only runs in the summer.  I usually recommend replacing your Air Conditioning System when a major problem comes along, like a compressor failure.  New Systems come with a 10 year Warranty.  Higher Efficiency Equipment is available today than in years gone by.  Call Foothills Mechanical Service, we will help you select a new High Efficiency Air Conditioning System that will reduce your Energy Bills.

Question: When should I consider replacing my Furnace?

Safety should be our first concern.  An old furnace should be checked for cracks in the heat exchanger.  The biggest danger is Carbon Monoxide Poison.  If you question your furnace, you should have it inspected by a professional.  Call Foothills Mechanical Service for a complete furnace check out.  New furnaces have stainless steel heat exchangers that don’t have heat exchanger problems.  Improve Furnace Efficiency by 15 to 20%, get a new equipment warranty, and insure your family’s safety.  Why wouldn’t you replace that old furnace?

Question: When should I consider replacing my Heat Pump?

With some maintenance, a Heat Pump should last about 15 years.  I usually recommend replacement when a major problem comes up; like a compressor or a coil replacement.  I replaced my old 10 SEER Heat Pump last year.  It was 16 years old.  With the new 15 SEER Heat Pump, I am saving about $100/month on our electric bill.  With a new system, you also get a 10 year parts warranty and a one year labor warranty.  So, New System, More Efficient, Short Term Payback in Energy Savings, and 10 year warranty; why wouldn’t you replace that broke down old Heat Pump?  Call Foothills Mechanical Service for a Heat Pump Replacement today.
