Okay so it wasn’t really that long ago – but then came a technology breakthrough – the remote control! What was better then sitting on the couch and raising or lowering the system output?

The Condensate and Your Cooling System

This is the time of year when ceilings and floors can become victims to water damage.  Improper collection and drainage of the condensate can be the cause of these issues.  When air passes through the cooling coil of an air conditioner or heat pump,  the temperature is lowered and moisture is pulled from the air.  When this happens, the moisture is collected in a condensate pan below the coil.  The condensate pan must drain quickly…

Darth Vader Heat Pump Maintenance Lesson III

Heat flows naturally from a higher to a lower temperature. Heat pumps, however, are able to force the heat flow in the other direction, using a relatively small amount of high quality drive energy (electricity, fuel, or high temperature waste heat). Thus heat pumps can transfer heat from natural heat sources in the surroundings, such as the air, ground or water, or even man-made heat sources such as industrial or domestic waste, to a building…
