We are the land of the free, we are the home of the brave. Let’s pay tribute to our brave American Heroes on this special day and forever. Factoid: Who came up with the 4th of July as a holiday? On July 4th, the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence, which had been written largely by Thomas Jefferson. Though the vote for actual independence took place on July 2nd, from then on, the 4th became the day that was celebrated as the birth of American independence. We hope everyone has a safe and rewarding 4th of July!
The Department of Energy (DOE) in response to the climate crisis has increased the minimum Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) standard from 80% to 90% for all new heating and cooling units to move America closer to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.1 For example, a high-efficiency gas furnace with an AFUE of 97 percent creates 97 BTUs of heat with every 100 BTUs of gas it uses. The rest is typically lost to the outdoors and flue emissions. A higher AFUE means greater efficiency. The DOE sets the minimum efficiency standards for ALL heating and cooling equipment manufacturers. Currently, it is 80 percent. Effective January 1, 2023, the new minimum efficiency will be 90 percent. What does that mean to you? Typically, the more efficient [...]
Did you know when airborne cottonwood blooms make their way to your condenser coils, they can create significant air restriction? If unattended, the damage will impact your air conditioning the entire summer. Blocked or clogged condenser coils decrease your air flow efficiency by 25% or more which leads to higher cooling bills. Overtime, the overtaxed compressors become damaged forcing you to make costly repairs.In addition to cottonwood, dirt also reduces your system’s efficiency because it creates a barrier between the coils and refrigerants, making it harder for the air conditioning system to eliminate heat.In Indiana, it’s not unusual to experience temperature swings. HVAC systems are especially vulnerable to hail damage. Sometimes hailstones are large enough to dent the fan motor and blades, causing them to [...]

This year's awards banquet was held at the 502 East Event Centre, in Carmel, Indiana on Saturday March 12. Team members and their significant others were treated to an evening of fun, food, and celebration. Usually, we celebrate awards annually; however, with COVID that tradition was suspended in 2020 and 2021. As a result, everyone was excited to celebrate past and present award recipients.
