What criteria should I use when selecting an HVAC system cleaning contractor?
You should interview as many local contractors as possible. Ask them to come to your home and perform a system inspection and give you a quote. To narrow down your pool of potential contractors, use the following pre-qualifications: Make sure the company is a member in good standing of NADCA. See if the company has been in business long enough to have adequate experience. Get proof that the company is properly licensed and adequately insured. Verify that the company is certified by NADCA to perform HVAC system cleaning. Make sure that the company is going to clean and visually inspect all of the air ducts and related system components. Ask if the company has the right equipment to effectively perform cleaning, and if the company has done work in homes similar to yours. Get references from neighbors if possible. You can also use the Homeowner’s Guide to Air Duct Cleaning as part of the contractor selection process.
How often should my HVAC be serviced?
HVAC systems should generally be serviced by a professional technician at least once a year, preferably before the start of the heating or cooling season. Regular maintenance can help identify and address potential issues before they become major problems and can also help ensure that the system operates efficiently and effectively. Some systems may require more frequent maintenance depending on factors such as the age of the system, the level of use, and any specific manufacturer recommendations.
Why does my family always run out of hot water before everyone has showered?
Lack of hot water may have 2 causes. First, the dip tube that forces incoming water to the bottom of the water heater tank so that hot water can be drawn off the top may be broken. Or secondly, if you have an electric water heater, the lower heating element may not be operating properly. This would cause only half of the water to be heating up. In any case, the true reason for your lack of hot water can only be determined by an expert. Our professionals at Home Alliance Plumbing Service will gladly be at your service.
I'm calling to put in a service request. I believe we had some work done with you guys before. We actually have a Frigidaire refrigerator that's not cooling on the top, and we wanted to see if we can have a repair man come out and check it out and see if there is any repairing that needs to be done. If they can be sent over as soon as possible because we have a guest sleeping over here, and I don't think they want their food to be spoiled.
We can have an appointment for today between 11am and 2pm. Let me just remind you how we work. We have a service call fee for the visit, it's, that's for a full physical diagnostic of the unit, and once you decide to proceed with us, the service call fee will be waived. For a mode of payment, you can pay us with a credit or debit card or check; we don't take cash for now. Keep your phone active and keep your fridge plugged in.
I had a job with another electrician, and I'm desperately looking for somebody who might have availability to do the same job today, which is running a new 240V line about 50 feet through an attic and then along with an outdoor wall, probably an additional 30 or 40 feet. So probably a 100-foot run and then putting in a new 240V breaker. This is a new line for a mini-split air conditioning system.
Unfortunately, for now, we are fully booked until the end of the month. I'm so sorry for this kind of service.
What’s the benefit of installing a water softener?
Installing a water softener can provide several benefits, including improved water quality and reduced wear and tear on household appliances. Hard water contains high levels of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, which can cause buildup in pipes, faucets, and other fixtures, leading to reduced water pressure and potentially costly repairs. A water softener removes these minerals and can help improve the lifespan and efficiency of appliances such as water heaters, dishwashers, and washing machines. Additionally, soft water can be gentler on skin and hair and may reduce the amount of soap and detergent needed for cleaning.
