Picture this: It’s midsummer in Iowa and it’s hot and sticky. You have your central air conditioning system pumping out cool air.

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.

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…

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

Inspect Your Pipes
