How Do I Know if My Home is Too Humid?

Today’s homes are built for better energy efficiency, which in and of itself is a great thing. Using less energy not only helps your wallet, but it helps the earth, too. Unfortunately, though, this means your home is more tightly sealed than an older home might be – and this can lead to some indoor air quality concerns, including too much indoor humidity.

And while this is most likely a problem you’ll deal with in the summertime, an overly humid house can be much more than just uncomfortable. Homes that are too humid can experience issues like mold and mildew growth, breakdown of building materials like plasterboard, stucco, and wood, and poor indoor air quality. Luckily, there are some telltale signs that can help you know if your indoor humidity level is an issue.

5 Signs of Too Much Humidity

  1. You notice condensation on surfaces. Your windows, pipes, and mirrors might have beads of moisture on them. If that’s the case, it’s likely that your home is too humid. Make sure you check the spaces around areas of condensation to ensure there is no moisture damage.
  2. Your air conditioning system isn’t keeping you cool. Your air conditioning system is designed to remove much of the excess humidity from your home’s air. However, in situations where there is too much moisture in the air, your AC system will have to work much harder to keep your home cool, and may simply not work as effectively.
  3. Your skin feels clammy or sticky. Nobody likes this yucky feeling, but if you’re noticing that your skin often feels this way inside your home, you likely have too much moisture in your indoor air.
  4. Walls, floors, and other surfaces may feel damp. If you notice that your walls, floors, shelving units, or furniture surfaces feel moist, it’s probably due to excessive humidity. You won’t want to wait to remedy the problem, because if left unchecked, it can cause permanent damage.
  5. There is a musty smell or mold and mildew is visible in your home. If you can smell mold or mildew, it’s likely that it’s already lurking somewhere in your home. And, if you can see it, you know it’s already there and you can be fairly certain that you have a moisture concern in your home.

What can I do if there is too much humidity in my home?

As we said above, if your home is too damp, it can cause all sorts of problems, from building issues to health concerns. Fortunately, there is something you can do about it – you can give T.F. O’Brien a call. We can help you get to the root of your humidity issues, and provide you with the products you need for better indoor air.

Need to Update Your AC? Find Out About 3 Common Types.

Now that the summer weather has arrived, most homeowners are turning on their air conditioning systems to escape the outdoor heat. If you have an older system, though, you might be thinking that you’re not as comfortable as you’d like to be. As air conditioning systems age, they can become less efficient and less effective, so you end up paying more to cool your home while experiencing diminished comfort. And, if you have to make frequent repairs to your system, the costs may seem to outweigh the benefits.

If your older system is showing more frequent symptoms of needing to be replaced, you may find yourself wondering what the best system might be for your home. It can certainly be confusing – there are many different types of air conditioning systems available today, as well as different ratings and efficiencies. In this article, we’ll focus on the three main types of AC.

Three Types of Air Conditioning Systems

When you’re considering what type of air conditioning system might be best for your home, you’ll find that there is a lot of information out there about AC systems. And that can get super-confusing! Below, we’ve broken down the three main types of air conditioning systems to give you some quick information about how they work and their benefits.

Central Air Conditioning

If you’ve had a central air conditioning system, or if your home has ductwork, central air is likely a good choice for you. Central AC systems provide cooling throughout your entire home via your system of ductwork and vary in size and configuration based on your home’s unique needs.

With a central air conditioner, there is an outdoor unit that connects to an indoor air handler, usually a blower located in the furnace. The outdoor unit sends chilled air into the home, which is then distributed through your duct system by the air handler.

Having properly sized central air conditioning is crucial because if the system is too small or too large, it won’t perform as well and may even not last as long as it should. That’s why it’s very important to choose an HVAC contractor who understands building science and knows how to accurately size the system for your home.

Heat Pump Systems

Heat pump systems are one of the most highly efficient means of cooling your home available. That’s because they absorb the heat from the indoor air and release it into the outdoor air or into the ground. Much like traditional central air conditioning, the system is comprised of an indoor and outdoor unit and uses your home’s ductwork to move the cooled air throughout your home.

Heat pumps are available in two different configurations – air source and ground source (or geothermal). Air source heat pumps transfer heat between indoor and outdoor air, whereas ground source heat pumps move the heat between the indoor air and the ground outside.

With a heat pump system, however, there is the added bonus of being able to heat your home during the cooler months as well. That’s because you can reverse the process, and the heat pump will absorb the heat from the outdoor air (even in cold temperatures) or ground and pump it into your house.

Ductless Cooling Systems

Ductless Air ConditioningDuctless systems generally rely on heat pump technology, which makes them a highly efficient way to cool your home. So, you may be wondering, why get a ductless system when you can just get a heat pump? There are many benefits to ductless that make it a great choice for any home.

First of all, ductless systems do not require ductwork to operate. This is especially beneficial for homes where adding ductwork is either impossible or impractical. They can be used to cool your entire home, or in a space in your home that may not have access to ductwork, such as an addition or converted space. And, they’re far more efficient than other types of room air conditioning, so you’ll likely save on your utility bills.

Like heat pumps, many ductless systems are able to provide heat during cooler weather as well, providing you with a flexible solution for year-round comfort for your home.

Air Conditioner Parts 101: Learn About Your AC Unit

When your air conditioning system needs repair services, your technician may talk with you about different components of the system. For instance, they may explain that there are compressor issues, or that the fan may need replacing. It may be difficult to know just what these parts are, and why they’re important for your AC system to operate properly.

TF O'Brien tech working

Of course, at T.F. O’Brien, we always want our customers to have all the knowledge they need when it comes to their home comfort systems, and we know it can be confusing. There is a lot of technical information dispersed throughout the internet, some of which may not be accurate or may not truly help you understand the importance of your air conditioning system’s components. With this article, we’ll provide you with a list of the main parts of your air conditioning system, and why replacing them in the event of failure is important.

Getting to Know Your Home’s Central Air Conditioning System

For the purposes of this article, we will focus on central air conditioning systems. While they function in a similar fashion, ductless cooling systems, as well as window and portable AC units, utilize a few different components and technologies to keep homes cool. Generally speaking, an air conditioning system is comprised of five main parts. Each of these parts must work together effectively to provide your home with cool comfort.

If any one of these components breaks down or stops working properly, it can cause your air conditioning unit as a whole to fail. That’s why it’s always important to call your HVAC contractor as soon as you notice a problem with your home’s air conditioning system – the sooner you call, the more likely your technician will be able to replace the faulty component and repair your system – so you’re not looking at a complete system replacement.

Five Main Components of an Air Conditioning System

Thermostat: It may seem obvious, but if you notice that your air conditioning system is not working properly, the first place you should always check is the thermostat. It can be as simple as someone changing the settings! If your thermostat is battery-powered, you may want to ensure that it has fresh batteries. Or, if it’s a wired system, you might want to check to make sure it hasn’t somehow become unwired. Perhaps your thermostat is simply old and has stopped working. If you’re not sure if your thermostat is faulty, your HVAC technician will be glad to check it out for you.

Evaporator Coil: Your air conditioning system’s evaporator coil is either attached to your home’s furnace or is located inside an air handler. Its function is to absorb the heat from your home’s indoor air. The compressor moves chilled refrigerant into the system’s evaporator coil. The blower fan then moves air over the evaporator coil, allowing the chilled refrigerant to remove heat from the air. Making sure you have a technician regularly maintain your air conditioning system is especially vital for the health of your evaporator coil. Because of the job it does, it can easily get a buildup of dirt and dust on it, reducing the efficiency in which it transfers heat. This can make your AC perform much less effectively and efficiently.

Condenser Coil: Your air conditioning system’s condenser coil is located in the outdoor part of your system. It serves the exact opposite function of the evaporator coil, in that it releases the heat into the outdoor air. After the refrigerant releases this heat, it then flows back into the evaporator coil, absorbs the heat, returns the hot refrigerant vapor back into the condenser coil, and does this over and over again in order to keep your home cool. Like your evaporator coils, condenser coils need regular maintenance as well – perhaps even more so. Why? Remember, the condenser coil is located outside. That makes it susceptible not only to the usual system buildup, but other elements like vegetation, dirt, and even pollen.

Expansion Valve: The purpose of the expansion valve is to regulate the refrigerant flow into the evaporator coil. Without it, refrigerant would rush into the evaporator coil under high pressure. As a result, a properly working expansion valve is crucial for AC operation. While expansion valves are manufactured to withstand a lot of wear and tear because of the job they do for your AC system, over time they can break down and significantly diminish system efficiency – and eventually cause your air conditioning system to break down if not replaced.

Contractor inspecting HVAC System

Compressor: Your air conditioning system’s compressor is essentially a pump that pressurizes the system’s refrigerant. It is located in the outdoor part of your AC unit, and its job is to compress and pump refrigerant throughout the system. The compressor in your home’s air conditioner has many moving parts, and failure of any of its components can cause your AC system to break down. There are a few indicators that can help you know if your compressor is struggling, including noises (such as bangs, clanks, or hisses), poor cooling, or hard starting.

How can T.F. O’Brien help me if one of these components fails?

Let us preface this by saying that at T.F. O’Brien, we truly believe that the best way to keep your air conditioning system – and all of its many parts – running efficiently and effectively is by getting it the annual maintenance it needs. As you’ve read above, your AC system is very susceptible to becoming dirty – both your indoor and outdoor parts. When you count on your T.F. O’Brien technician to maintain your system, they’ll make sure it’s cleaned and lubricated properly, and that refrigerant levels are appropriate.

You can rely on us in the event of a breakdown, too. Our technicians have been trained to troubleshoot virtually all types of air conditioning systems. They’ll replace the parts that are failing, and help get your air conditioning system running effectively and efficiently. All you need to do is give us a call at 516.488.1800, and we’ll be happy to help you get the air conditioning services you need.

Is Your Air Conditioning System Telling You Something?

GettyImagesOnce the summer heat arrives, the last thing anyone wants to think about is their air conditioning system not working well. A broken-down AC system is certainly never convenient and not a welcome situation on a hot day. However, there are a few signs your air conditioner will give you if it’s not working properly that can help you avoid a complete breakdown – and a potentially costly replacement.

In this article, we’ll discuss how your AC might be telling you that you need to consider calling for service – and hopefully help you get out ahead of a costly breakdown. Of course, getting your air conditioning system maintained every year is one of the best ways you can prevent a breakdown. By getting preventive maintenance for your system each year, your technician will have a history of your system, and any problems it may have experienced in the past. They’ll also perform a proper cleaning and check-up, which will likely show any issues.

Five Signs You May Need AC Repair

As your air conditioning ages, problems can start to spring up that make repairs necessary. While this is normal, it’s also important that you address concerns quickly. Here are five ways your air conditioning system might warn you that a breakdown is likely: 

  1. Your home isn’t as cool as you’d like. If you find yourself setting your thermostat lower and lower, but you’re still not comfortable, it could signal a problem. It could be a problem with your thermostat itself, or it may be a refrigerant or evaporator coil concern.
  2. Your energy bills are on the rise. If your energy bills are unusually high, it could be a sign that your air conditioning system is working harder than it should be. Calling in a technician to troubleshoot can help find any problem and remedy it.
  3. You notice ice on your unit. If you notice ice on your air conditioning system, there is likely a problem that needs to be addressed. It can be as simple as a dirty filter, but it’s still a problem that you should call your HVAC contractor to check out.
  4. Your home is more humid than usual. Part of your air conditioning system’s job is to help control humidity in your home. If the air in your home is staying uncomfortably humid despite the air conditioner running, it may signal a need for repair services.
  5. There are cold and hot spots in your home. If your air conditioning system doesn’t seem to be cooling your home properly, it may be time to call for repairs. While there may be an issue with the ductwork and not your AC system itself, you’ll still want to call your HVAC pro for help.

My air conditioning system seems to be asking for help. Who can I call?

Getting your air conditioning system the repair services it needs is as easy as calling T.F. O’Brien. Our professional technicians will be able to troubleshoot your system and see if and where any repairs are needed.

“Going Green” Can Benefit the Environment – and You!

green_ductless_efficiencyMore and more, people are becoming concerned about how they impact the planet. From shopping with reusable bags and looking for products with environmentally-friendly packaging, to taking measures in their homes to minimize their carbon footprint, people are looking for ways they can protect the world around them.

The HVAC industry is no different – most manufacturers are looking for more environmentally sound solutions when it comes to the equipment they produce. Advances have been made to create equipment that not only does a better job of keeping people more comfortable but also does so efficiently. In this article, we’ll talk about four technologies that have been developed that can keep you comfortable – and help you create a greener home.

4 Technologies That Can Help You Go Green

As we mentioned above, there are new developments in the HVAC industry every day that strive to minimize the impact of heating and cooling equipment on the environment. Beginning with creating refrigerants that have been proven not to harm the ozone layer, to developing technologies that use much less electricity and fuel than their predecessors, the home comfort industry is moving forward to create products that benefit both the planet and the homeowner.

  1. Ductless Cooling & Heating: To cool and heat areas in the home where there is little or no access to ductwork, many homeowners are turning to ductless cooling and heating These compact units provide better comfort than most window AC units and space heaters and are very energy-efficient. They can be used for climate control in a single space in the home, or multiple units can be installed to cool and heat the entire house. Today’s units use an environmentally sound refrigerant. As an added bonus, they can be used to help balance out cold and hot spots, allowing your central HVAC system to operate more efficiently. What’s more, most ductless systems use heat pump technology, which we’ll describe in more detail below.
  2. Heat Pump Systems: Heat pump systems can be used centrally in homes with ductwork, or in ductless units for homes without ductwork. What makes heat pumps better for the environment is the way in which they operate. Heat pumps provide higher efficiency heating and cooling because they transfer hot air as opposed to burning fuel inside your home. Most heat pumps are also extremely environmentally sound, having achieved an Energy Star rating because of their highly energy-efficient operation and because they use a non-ozone-depleting refrigerant.
  3. Smart Thermostats: There are many different types of thermostats available that can help your home stay comfortable while using less energy. Programmable thermostats, while an older technology, are effective in this way because you can program them to provide different levels of heating and cooling while at home, away, or asleep. Smart thermostats take that technology one step further by “learning” your family’s habits and adjusting the temperature of your home accordingly. In addition, most smart thermostats are Wi-Fi compatible, and can easily be controlled via smartphone, tablet, or computer. Some will even let you know when it’s time to change your HVAC system’s filter – one of the best measures you can take to help your system remain energy efficient.
  4. Advanced Filters: Another facet of home comfort is the air your family breathes. Cleaner, fresher indoor air is important, and high-efficiency filters can help with that. They remove particulates and contaminants from the air, which keeps your home virtually free of airborne pollen, dust, and germs. And, because the air flowing through your HVAC system is cleaner, you’ll likely find that your system operates more efficiently – helping you save energy and potentially money on your utility bills.

Spring Allergies: How Indoor Air Quality Products Can Help

Do you or someone in your household suffer from springtime allergies? If so, you know how awful they can make you feel, from itchy, stuffy noses, to watery, red eyes. While enjoying the great outdoors when pollen counts are high is usually not on the books for spring allergy sufferers, unfortunately, it can be just as uncomfortable indoors. That’s because those allergens can enter your home on shoes, clothing, and through windows, and then get circulated through your home over and over again through your HVAC system.

Fortunately, there is some good news for those who traditionally experience sniffly, sneezy springs. Today, there are many products available that can help you enjoy improved indoor air quality (IAQ), and some practical measures you can take that can help you get through allergy season a bit easier. In this article, we will give you some suggestions on how to improve your IAQ, and how we can help.

Improve Your IAQ with These Easy Steps

Filtration

This is the easiest step you can take to ensure that your indoor air is cleaner and healthier, and one you can do yourself. Making sure that your HVAC system’s air filter is clean and free of dirt, pollen, and other contaminants is a simple way to improve your air quality. Changing the filter often helps your system run more efficiently, too, so it’s a win-win!

Depending on the severity of your allergies, you may want to think about the type of filter you use. Most people use basic filters in their systems, which is fine, but if you’re having a lot of problems with allergens in your home’s air, you might want to consider filters that can pull out the most microscopic particles.

Air Cleaning

Products like whole-home air cleaners do a great job of significantly reducing the number of allergens in your home. They help get rid of contaminants like mold, bacteria, dust, dander, and pollen – all of which can wreak havoc for allergy sufferers. And, these systems clean the air at the source of circulation, because they work with your home’s HVAC system.

Humidity

While having moisture in your home’s air during the winter months is helpful, once the weather starts to warm up it can become unpleasant. Not only does it make you feel hotter and stickier, but it can also encourage the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. Whole-house dehumidification can help mitigate that problem, and help your air conditioning system run more effectively and efficiently, too!

Air Conditioning System Maintenance

Of course, you know that AC maintenance helps your system run better and that there are many reasons why it’s important. But, it can also help your indoor air quality, too. Regular cleaning of your system helps remove any dirt or mold growth from your system, allowing it to circulate fresher, cleaner air.

T.F. O’Brien can help you improve your IAQ this spring, and all year long.

Getting the indoor air quality products you need for improved home comfort is simple – just give T.F. O’Brien a call. We can talk to you about your indoor air quality concerns, and help you find just the right products for your home.

Maximize Your Home’s Space with Ductless Heating & Cooling

TFO WEB HomeDuctlessThe pandemic has meant that more and more people are using their homes for work, education, and communicating with friends and family. “Zooming” is now a part of our vocabulary, and many people spend a good part of their day in Zoom meetings with either coworkers or classmates. That means that for many of us, our homes are now both offices and classrooms – and space in the home can be at a premium.

Maybe you have an area of your home that would be great to convert into an office, like a finished basement area or converted attic, but you’re hesitant because that area is just not comfortable. Many times, these areas only get used when the weather is temperate, but can be uncomfortable spaces when it becomes chilly (or conversely muggy) outside. You should know, there is a way to make those areas of your home much more comfortable – and much more usable.

Ductless heating & cooling can help make occasional areas full-time parts of your home.

Now more than ever, people need to be able to access all the spaces in their homes. Oftentimes, additions, garages, basements, and attics don’t have the ductwork needed to connect to the home’s HVAC system. So, those areas don’t get used as often as they could. By adding a ductless system, you and your family will be able to maximize that space, no matter what the weather is like outside.

A ductless system does not require ductwork (as the name would imply) to operate. The indoor and outdoor units are connected by a small-diameter tube, and the installation of a ductless unit requires minimal construction. And that means minimal disruption and mess, too. Ductless systems can provide both heating and cooling, are easy to operate via remote control, and are quiet as well – making it easy to convert your space into an area for online classroom and work meetings.

T.F. O’Brien can help you get the ductless system you need.

If you think you have a space in your home that could benefit from a ductless system, you should know T.F. O’Brien can help you. We’re pleased to offer our customers the ductless heating and cooling they need to make the most of every inch of their homes! Not only will we provide you with quality ductless system installation, but we can also ensure you get annual maintenance for your system, as well as any repairs you may need down the road.
