How Do You Know If Your Pipes Are Frozen?

Written by Hanna Plumbing & Heating / January 16, 2020

It might not always be obvious, but there are some telltale signs that your plumbing system is frozen. Depending on the location of the frozen pipes and how frozen they are, you may need to call a professional to help.

Working Furnace, Chilly Home? Here’s What Humidity Has to Do with It.

Written by Hanna Plumbing & Heating / November 20, 2019

Iowa got an early dose of winter this year, forcing most of us to crank up the heat earlier than usual. And while we’re all glad to be in a warm house with a working furnace, we often forget that heat isn’t the only factor that matters when it comes to keeping your house cozy this winter—humidity also plays a big role.

Don’t Get Caught in the Cold: Tips To Be Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Winter

Written by Hanna Plumbing & Heating / October 15, 2019

Your furnace kept you warm last winter but it is a complex instrument that should be inspected yearly for safety and efficiency.

Every year when nighttime temperatures start to drop below freezing we receive contacts from individuals who do not have heat; their furnace quits or it won’t start.   In some situations, these individuals may pay more for emergency/after-hour service or the repair may cost more than it would have if the issue would’ve been caught early.

 

Check Your Furnace Before You Need It

Inconsistent Temperatures in Your Home? A Ductless Mini-Split Can Help

Written by Hanna Plumbing & Heating / August 16, 2019

A ductless mini-split is a heating and cooling system that allows homeowners to control temperatures in individual rooms or spaces. Similar to a central air system, the mini split has both an indoor and outdoor component. They are relatively quick and easily installed by a professional HVAC technician since they do not require ducts throughout the home.

A ductless mini-split can improve the indoor comfort in larger homes with inefficient conventional HVAC systems. We find that homeowners who face this problem may not be…

Written by Hanna Plumbing & Heating / June 10, 2019

And although we can’t control the impending storm or the 95-degree heatwave, we can fix that air conditioning system that only cools the basement you never use, the system that only cranks out cold air when you don’t need it, or the system that just completely stopped working.

To help avoid emergency repairs and replacements, we recommend scheduling an HVAC tune-up each…
