Do I need to change my furnace filter in the summer?

Posted by Amy on May 3, 2012 8:57:00 AM

Did you know that a dirty filter is one of the most common reasons for expensive air conditioner/HVAC service calls here in Minnesota?

In the spring we all like to open our windows and let the fresh air in, but we are also letting in dust and dirt. And when the furnace blower is running, the air in the house is circulated, stirring up that dust and dirt. Thankfully we have our air filter to collect the debris from our furnace blower.

If you are not changing your furnace filter regularly, the debris circulating in your home will begin to build up, causing the filter to become restricted (not allowing the proper airflow required for A/C operation).

When there is insufficient air flow across the A/C coil (evaporator) the furnace is starved of airflow and the temperature of the refrigerant drops below 32 degrees. This can become a problem because the air being circulated has moisture in it and that moisture will freeze when it hits the cold coil. As the A/C continues to run, moisture-filled air will continue to freeze and you'll end up with a big block of ice sitting above your furnace!

Ductless Systems from Carrier

Posted by Amy on Feb 14, 2012 3:39:00 PM

What is a Ductless System?

Not every room has ductwork for heating or cooling. Sometimes providing adequate comfort in commonly used spaces means wasting energy elsewhere. Usually these spaces lack ductwork; however, hot or cold spots can exist even in rooms with ductwork.

Carrier® ductless systems are innovative heating and cooling solutions that make sure non-ducted spaces are as comfortable as any ducted space, so you can expand your living and work areas.

How can Ductless Systems work for my home or business?

Ductless Systems for the Home
Spaces without ductwork currently or those that don’t seem to be getting the heating or cooling they need, such as room conversions, room additions and older homes, are just some of the spaces that can see a real difference in comfort and potential energy savings.

Furnace repair: how does a gas furnace work?

Posted by Amy on Nov 3, 2011 8:45:00 AM


Before you can go ahead troubleshooting or repairing a gas furnace, it is important to understand exactly how it works.

Basically, a gas furnace takes in the cold air, cleans it through your air filter, then heats the air up with a gas burner before distributing the warm air through your home's ductwork.

The heated air eventually cools down in your home's various rooms and then makes a trip back to the furnace through return air grills and ductwork, where the process starts all over again.
