Expert Tips
- Robert B. P. Thompson
Maintaining a clean and organized home is essential for a peaceful and stress-free living. As an expert in residential services, I recommend setting aside a specific time each week for decluttering and tidying up. Start by tackling one room at a time, sorting items into three categories: keep, donate, and discard. This not only helps create a more spacious and inviting environment but also allows you to give back to the community by donating unwanted items. Remember, a well-maintained home promotes a healthier and happier lifestyle.

Residential HVAC Duct Design

In terms of addressing the heating and cooling of your home, it is key to assess what HVAC duct design works best for the space. This can mean a variety of things. Is the space large enough to accommodate the duct work? If not, should there be a ductless system put in place? Residential HVAC duct design is not an intimidating job, but it does require forethought. Make sure that when you contact Robert B. Payne, Inc., you’re willing to address the issues and decide on what works best for your particular home.

Residential Emergency HVAC Service

When the weather gets tough, your HVAC system may begin to falter and fail when it is needed the most. Your heating or cooling system can only take so much before it begins to break down.

Our emergency HVAC service is available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. We offer lively, efficient customer service for each and every customer, and our technicians will go over everything you need to know beforehand, including prices and what exactly needs to be fixed. On top of that, we guarantee all repairs will be performed in the correct manner the first time, not on subsequent visits. Ideally, your air conditioning or heating unit would not break down, but we don’t get the choice as to when this happens. Instead, our technicians can simply respond and fix the issue in a timely manner for you.

Why do I have hot and cold spots in my home, and how can they be fixed?

A common complaint amongst homeowners is that certain areas of their house are either too cold or too hot, while the rest of the house remains at a pretty standard temperature. This issue can cause quite a bit of discomfort for those living in the home.

A variation in temperature, by just two or three degrees, is quite normal and does not point towards a larger problem. When the issue is 10 degrees, however, a problem is definitely on hand with the heating and air conditioning system. A professional can examine your system for any faults that may be causing these occurrences.

A few possible reasons for this happening include leaky ductwork, an incorrectly-sized heating or cooling unit for your home, the placement of vents in the home, the temperature control being installed in a bad spot, or the placement of doors and windows.

What regular service do residential HVAC systems need?

Regular maintenance to your residential HVAC system is necessary in order to prevent large repairs that will be costly down the road. Neglecting the most necessary maintenance will guarantee your air conditioning or heating system will slowly decline in performance and efficiency, costing you more money to operate on a regular basis and providing more discomfort than most people are interested in sitting through.

To start, you should always check the filters, coils, and fins of your air conditioning unit. Replacing a dirty filter is vital to ensure the entire system continues running. With a dirty filter, it won’t be long before the evaporator coil becomes impaired. For most air conditioning units, the air filter should be changed out at least once per month.

If you are unsure of exactly what maintenance needs to be performed regularly, it may be best to set up a maintenance schedule with our professional HVAC services. Our technicians know what to watch for and can prevent large breakdowns or costly repairs.
