Air Conditioning

When temperatures rise here in you expect the air conditioning to keep your home cool and comfortable throughout the summer. A good air conditioner not only cools your home, but reduces humidity, filters the air, and does it all without giving you a sky-high electricity bill.

Keeping an air conditioner unit working at its peak during the hottest months means changing filters, checking refrigerant, and making repairs fast. But with our busy lives, who has time for that?

That is why you need a team of experts working with you to ensure your air conditioning remains in tip-top shape for years to come. With one of our affordable heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) maintenance agreement plans, you do not have to wonder if the filters have been changed or if the parts are wearing out. The only thing you need to think about is how nice and cool your home will feel when you walk in the front door.

Boilers

Waking up to a cozy warm house is one of winter’s little pleasures. Rolling out of bed and walking to the bathroom without freezing your toes gets the morning off to a good start. But when the alarm goes off and you can see your breath in the icy bedroom air, you know it is not going to be a good day in .

A lot of us in use gas boilers to heat our homes and small offices. Overall, boilers last for many years, quietly keeping us warm and requiring little maintenance. But they do require some maintenance to remain efficient and to not break down when we need them most. 

With your central boiler system, whether a water boiler or steam boiler, you should have one of our preventative maintenance agreement plans that includes a seasonal checkup, cleaning and tuning, and an end of the year shutdown.

Ductless Systems

There are some rooms in your home that are never comfortable. Maybe it is the playroom at the end of the hall or the sunroom with all the big windows. No matter how you adjust the thermostat, it just never feels right. You might think adding a new air conditioning unit just for that room is too expensive or disruptive.

In most cases, you might be right, but a ductless system , sometimes called a mini split system, lets you add a dedicated unit to one room without the expense and disruption of ducted systems.

A ductless mini split surface mounts on the wall without the need for ductwork and vents cut into the walls. The wall-mounted unit blows warm or cool air into the room and draws it back in through one piece of equipment. The outdoor condensing unit is small and works quietly sitting outside the house.

Almost everyone in has a room that could feel better with its own ductless unit. Our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) team at Burns & McBride Home Comfort can help, so call us at 302-273-1341. We can estimate what ductless system is right for you.

Water Heaters

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are no longer the traditional units and styles you may be accustomed to in older homes or you grew up with. They deal with almost every major system in your home. One of these fringe systems in your home is a residential HVAC water heater.

In a nutshell, HVAC water heaters heat your water. There are two ways that this can be done. The first system involves a tank and the second system option is tankless. However, the basics are the same.

Tank water heaters are the traditional options and simply heat and store water according to your tank size. They can be heated by gas, oil, or electric power. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, only heat water when you want it. These systems may additionally work with solar, geothermal, or other alternative heating sources in addition to the power sources of traditional tank systems in .

Whole-House Dehumidifiers

Nothing is so draining as heavy humidity in the heat. Cold humidity is scarcely better. Even when it is cool and air is moving, that sticky, clammy feeling is hard to shake off, particularly when it is in your own home. If you have ever had to deal with an unpleasantly damp atmosphere in your home, it may be time to consider a whole-house dehumidifier.

These handy systems are an easy, efficient way to pull excess moisture out of your home and prevent problems such as mold, rot, condensation, and other major issues. On a smaller scale, whole-house dehumidifiers can also lower your heating and air conditioning bills by providing a more pleasant atmosphere without pumping more cold or warm air into your home.

If someone in your home suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues, high levels of humidity can intensify the problems. While it depends on your unique situation, lowering the humidity levels can dramatically help you and your loved ones.

When you are ready to explore your dehumidifier options, our professionals at Burns & McBride Home Comfort are ready and happy to assist you at 302-273-1341. Request whole-house dehumidifier service online today.

Whole-House Humidifiers

Dry air is easily felt in certain places or during certain times. We can see its effects in our homes, in our pets, and in our families fairly quickly when the dry air is really bad. What got your home to that in in the first place?

The short answer is your humidity levels are both imbalanced and probably fluctuate far more than they should on a regular basis. You may only notice it when the humidity dramatically decreases, but that only points to a larger problem. Your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can’t always properly manage these levels on its own.

One of the simplest ways to deal with constant dry air issues is by installing a whole-house humidifier. These systems are designed specifically to manage humidity levels in your home in ways that most HVAC systems are not. Depending on your model, they generally work with your HVAC system’s existing ductwork, which can make installation much simpler.

However, it’s certainly not a do-it-yourself (DIY) project. That is where our Burns & McBride Home Comfort professionals can help you discover what systems are best for your needs and to install. Call 302-273-1341 to speak with our knowledgeable team. Request whole-house humidifier service online today.
