In-Floor Heat

For new homes, we install in-floor radiant heating systems to provide comfortable footing all winter. They’re a great option if you love the look of tile or wood but don’t love the idea of cold floors on winter mornings. In-floor heat can be also be installed under carpet or vinyl. It’s commonly used in bathrooms and also works well for bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, basements and more.

Zoned Heat

Zoning an HVAC system can help reduce energy use and save on heating costs while maintaining a more even temperature throughout the home. If your home has multiple stories or rooms that always seem too cold, contact us to see if zoned heating could be the answer to keeping everyone comfortable.

Larger homes with a second floor often use two or more HVAC systems to regulate the temperature of each story separately. However, smaller homes may get more benefit from a single HVAC system that’s divided into zones that each have their own thermostat and can be regulated individually.

A zoned HVAC system uses dampers to control the airflow into each zone, which could be an entire floor or just one room. Zones can be configured so everyone’s bedroom is at an ideal temperature for sleeping and there’s no energy wasted on unnecessary heat for rooms that rarely get used.

Do you know how well YOUR furnace is working? Mine was fine. It heated the house. We were warm. All was good.

I had Aspen Aire come just for a service check. I knew my furnace was older because it came with the house and we’ve lived there for 13 years. We were prepared that eventually it would stop working and we would need to replace it. But it couldn’t hurt to have a check up.

Until the day  we got the news that our furnace was leaking a lot of carbon monoxide into our house. No, I didn’t have a detector in my house. We were advised to immediately make plans to replace our furnace. And sleep with the furnace off. And get a carbon monoxide detector that night. Can you imagine the fear we were riddled with?

I have no idea how long this has been going on. What I do know, is that I haven’t felt ‘good’ in an extremely long time. From headaches, to being dizzy and nauseous, I have felt off for months. (I mean seriously I can’t remember the last time I felt good.) But the headaches have  just been out of control for the last year. My daughter has been a different person as well. Our whole house has been out of whack. I can’t say that this is the root of it all, but I can speculate.

When we got the news, Aspen Aire was there for us. They also found that our hot water heater was leaking and it was time to replace that. So we found all of this out on Wednesday, and today they are at my house.  Right now we are installing a new furnace, AC unit and hot water unit. It’s money we hadn’t planned on spending right now, but I look at it like it’s an investment in our home and our health.

If we decide to sell our house, these upgrades will be important to a potential buyer. But I think the peace of mind knowing we will wake up in the morning is all I need. This was a huge wake up call for my family.

It really is worth it to get your furnace checked. A simple service check up from Aspen Aire could give you peace of mind, and maybe even end up saving a life. People die from carbon monoxide poisoning. I just feel lucky that it wasn’t my family.
