The air conditioner is arguably the most important investment for your home. If you live in Ohio, you know that is an understatement, especially during the peak of summer. Having a properly working air conditioner is a necessity as the temperatures reach boiling hot temperatures.

Unfortunately, like all appliances, air conditioners have a limited lifespan. Even though the air conditioning in Maumee, OH, is designed to last a long time, it cannot keep your home cool forever.

If we ask you to picture a water heater in your head, what do you envision? We’d guess you’re seeing a big tank that has pipes and lines coming out of it, right? Now, take away the tank.

Perhaps you’re confused by this concept, or maybe the room you pictured in your mind is now flooded, depending on how deep your imagination runs. However, we want to bring this idea up because you do not actually require a tank to get hot water into your home. This is due to the invention of tankless water heaters.

A tankless system is just about what it sounds like. It heats up hot water, but doesn’t require the use of a tank to hold multiple gallons of water at a time. Not only is this a great piece of technology, but there are a number of benefits associated with it. Read on to learn more!

It likely goes without saying for residents here in Maumee or one of the surrounding communities that it gets pretty dang cold in the winter! As such, you use your heater on a regular basis, counting on it to keep you comfortable as well as safe.

Did you have it professionally tuned-up before the winter season started? The good news is, that even if you answered “no” to this question the only time it’s too late is if your heater completely broke down and is beyond repair. Skipping maintenance even one year can leave you with surprise repair needs that will cost a lot and could even be dangerous.

One repair need to be especially aware of, if you have a gas-powered heater, is replacing a damaged heat exchanger (or replacing the whole system if the problem is severe enough). Look, gas-powered heaters on not inherently dangerous. But yours can absolutely become so if you neglect this vital component. Keep reading to learn more!

If this is a question you don’t know the answer to, then now is definitely time to consider it. The thing is, homes without the right air quality systems and services in place have worse air quality than the outdoors. This is because contaminants like allergens and other potentially harmful particles get trapped inside the home with no escape.

Sure, your HVAC systems have an air filter, but this air filter is designed to protect the HVAC system from this debris, not your indoor air or your family. For true indoor air quality protection and improvement, you’ll want to look into products like air cleaners and purifiers. Read on to learn more!

Tank water heaters are typically what most homeowners are familiar with when they think of water heaters. They’re large, noticeable, and sometimes even a bit noisy. Because of their prevalence, most people understand and suspect that they need service from time to time—particularly maintenance.

Scaling causes issues with water pressure, temperature, and even corrosion. The way to solve this is with flushing, as part of your maintenance session.

But tankless systems don’t have to deal with this, right? Well… actually… yes, yes they do. Read on to learn more!
