If you were to ask us about the most important appliance in your home, we’d have to say that your water heater tops the list, easily. After all, this is the one system in your home you need absolutely every day, for bathing, cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc.

Of course, since you do use it every day, it means that it uses a lot of your home’s electrical energy. Water heater tanks can suffer from something called “standby heat loss.” Essentially, this means that your water heater’s heat exchangers turn on to heat the water in the tank, but then when that water doesn’t get used, it cools down and the heat exchangers have to come back on to heat up the same exact batch.

One way to resolve this issue? Make sure that you have the right sized tank, so no hot water is going to waste. If you’re looking at a water heater replacement, then this blog post is for you. Read on to learn just how to choose the right water heater tank size.

AC Installation: The Difference a Professional Makes

When it comes to an investment such as an air conditioning installation, we understand the urge to install it all on your own. After all, won’t it save you money?

Well, unfortunately, unless we’re talking about a portable window air conditioner, we really do need to advise against this being a “DIY” project.

The reason we say this is because there are a number of steps to take in successfully installing an HVAC system, and if any of those steps are missed or done too hastily, it could potentially lead to issues such as refrigerant leaks, inefficient operation, or even a premature system breakdown. Overall, air conditioning systems are really complex, and as such require an experienced and highly trained professional to manage.

Of course, when you live somewhere like the Kingsland area, having an air conditioner is vital, and this isn’t something you want to wait on. But we really do need to stress that rushing into a large purchase such as this could potentially leave you sacrificing comfort and efficiency, and calling in a professional anyway, for unexpected repairs or even replacement.

Read on to learn the steps we go through for your AC installation.
