Simple Steps to Cleaner Air

December 28, 2011

Your furnace filter operates much like the air filter in your car, catching dirt and debris. And when the filter gets clogged, it’s time for a new one, because a full filter causes your heating/cooling system to work harder and burn up more energy. In the worst cases, a dirty filter can lead to expensive repairs and even system failure.

Purchasing a new HVAC system is a big investment in your home. Getting prices from different companies can be stressful and you could run into pushy contractors as well.

Service Contracts, Worth It?

October 14, 2011

Heating and cooling systems have a way of breaking down when the weather is at its worst – on the coldest day of a frigid winter, or during a sizzling summer heat wave. Times when your comfort system must work the hardest, and when you need it most. If you haven’t already considered it, here are a few reasons why you as a homeowner should have Charlotte Comfort Systems, Inc. perform routine maintenance on your heating/cooling system:

Getting Ready for Fall

September 6, 2011

Summer’s heat is fading and it is time to prepare yourself and your home for the upcoming change of season. In addition to routine inspection and maintenance to ensure that your HVAC system is operating as needed, there are numerous other things that every homeowner should be keep in mind when preparing for a shift from warm to cooler climates. Here are a few items that are on my personal annual fall checklist. Though not exhaustive, these items are a great starting point.

It’s Like a Heat Wave

July 22, 2011

Today we will experience the hottest temperatures of the year so far, 98 degree’s with a heat index of 104 degree’s plus. While such extreme heat can cause great discomfort to anyone outdoors, it can also stress your a/c system beyond its ability to maintain desired indoor temperatures. We use 93 degree’s as our outdoor design temperature when sizing your new air conditioner, because when it gets hotter than that your system can struggle to keep your home cool.

That’s why we have compiled a list of the most important factors that every homeowner should consider before deciding whether to repair or replace a problematic heating or cooling system...

Keeping Humidity Relative

April 28, 2011

"Heating & Air Conditioning" is about as broad a term as I can imagine. That's why as a contractor in this field, I have made the conscious effort to separate Charlotte Comfort Systems from the pack by offering custom, well-thought-out solutions for our customers instead of offering one-size-fits-all solutions. As a business you have to determine your place in the market, whether you want to specialize in new construction, replacements in existing homes or even commercial/industrial applications.

Springtime Comfort Tips

April 14, 2011

Spring is in full bloom and if you have allergies you are fully aware that going outside quickly leads to scratchy eyes and nasal congestion. What a great time to make your home an oasis from this misery! It can easily be accomplished by sealing your ductwork or adding a high efficiency air cleaner to your existing heating/cooling system. If your existing home comfort system is older, there are many incentives to make purchasing a new system easier on the wallet; not to mention the improved comfort levels and energy savings that are a direct result of the investment.
