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

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.

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.

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

Written by Hanna Plumbing & Heating / February 20, 2019

Multi-level homes can be great for young, growing families, but inevitably as we age, our mobility begins to decline. ADA remodeling has benefits beyond allowing you to age in place. It can serve as a huge selling point, allowing the elderly or those with disabilities to use your home to the fullest extent.
