My steam heating system is noisy, this is normal, right?
Absolutely not, steam heat is a lost art. A properly maintained steam system is quiet and very comfortable as it introduces moisture into the air. Most steam systems are noisy because of poor maintenance, or as we have seen over and over, unexperienced persons making improper repairs on the system because they simply don’t have the experience with Home Alliance. Call us today at (877) 777-0796, and sleep in a quiet and toasty home tonight.
Should I repair or replace old equipment?
Three main factors to consider are: Life expectancy of current system Operating cost Looking at the big picture When you’re frustrated by an equipment breakdown, it can be tempting to find the least expensive “quick fix” to get on with your life in relative comfort. That “quick fix” may be the least expensive option now, but it may not give you the most value–or cost you the least–in the long run. Paying for repairs on an old or inefficient system often simply prolongs the inevitable. It’s almost like putting a bandage on a serious injury. An older system that breaks down once is likely to break down again… and again. That means more emergency service calls or, worse yet, the risk of damage to your home or to other components of your heating and cooling system. Operating Cost There’s also an ongoing cost factor to consider. Restoring your old system will only bring it back to its current level of energy efficiency. After you’ve recovered from the repair bills and the frustration of system breakdowns, you still won’t save on your energy bills. Even six-year -old heat pumps and air conditioners are considered grossly inefficient by today’s energy efficiency standards, as are most furnaces built before 1980. With new high-efficiency equipment, you could save up to 60% on your energy bills. That’s why installing a new heating and cooling system can actually pay for itself in energy savings within a relatively short time.
Do bigger air conditioning units perform better?
Sometimes. It's crucial to get an air conditioner that fits your house correctly. A larger air conditioner will chill your home more quickly, but it will also be less effective and less effective at removing humidity. There will be short cycles in it. Although it cools the air rapidly, it will need to pump more air across the interior coil to drain water from your system before it turns off. As a result, too much moisture will be in the air, which may cause mold and mildew to grow within your house.
I was wondering if you help with the LG oven. The door is permanently stuck in a lock position. I think it might be something with the motor. I was cooking something, and it made clicking noises, which it had done a few times before. There are no more noises, and it just won't open.
I want to let you know how we work here. For sending someone to the area, that is going . That is for them to come over and do a diagnostic; however, that will then go to the repair cost. We will see you on Thursday between 1pm to 4pm, and don't forget to keep your phone line active; the technician will give you a call 30 minutes prior. For the payment, we take credit card, debit card, or check.
Our Thermador oven is not lighting. Something died, I think. It's more than 10 years old since I bought it in 2008. How much do you charge for something like that? Do you have the parts for it? When is the earliest you can come out? Like how is your schedule?
In your area, that's for our technician to travel to your home, inspect your unit and tell you what's wrong. You will authorize any repairs, and we'll give you an estimate before you decide. That will be waived if you proceed with the repairs with us. Our technician will bring common parts with him, and if it's not available, he will help you order that through the manufacturer. We are currently booked for today, and the soonest time we can send you a technician will be tomorrow between 9 and 12 PM. We accept debit and credit cards and checks regarding our mode of payment.
I wondered if you could come out to a location and recharge a freezer freon.
What we do here is we only do the mechanical and internal repair. We don't do refills on Freon. You could try Yelp.com and find a technician there.
