It’s Air Quality Awareness Week!

It’s Spring! The birds are chirping, the grass is growing, the flowers are blooming, and you’re…sneezing? Well, you’re not alone. Over 50 million Americans suffer from some form of allergies; and it’s not just pollen that causes these sneeze fests. Allergies can also be caused by grasses, pet dander, dust mites, molds, smoke, and many other foreign substances that make their way into our homes.

So, what is Peck doing to help alleviate some of the nuisances that plague us this time of year? We’re celebrating Air Quality Awareness Week (April 29th – May 3rd) by offering $20 off your next service when you book an appointment during this week! Sadly, we can’t keep you from being subject to allergens when you step out the front door. But we do offer IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) product solutions and duct cleaning services giving you the comfort and peace of mind that the air in your home is clean and fresh! Just schedule your appointment here for the highest quality heating and air conditioning service in the Greater Roseville area.

We make it easy…for you to breath clean, healthy air.

*Offer is valid on one service performed between Monday 4/29/13 through Friday 5/31/13. Appointment must be booked between 4/29/13 to 5/10/13.

2013 Energy Rebates

It’s not every day you find $300 laying around your house. But that may be exactly what’s happening to people all over the US who installed energy efficient HVAC and water heating equipment in 2012.

The “fiscal cliff” fiasco of late 2012 was enough to scare politicians and lawmakers into signing legislature that allows for rebates to continue, and even be retroactive for people who were willing to make an investment in future savings by upgrading their appliances. This is great news for people whose heater and air conditioners were using up valuable energy and costing them an arm and a leg.

Tax Credits are available for qualifying equipment that includes water heaters ($300), furnaces ($150), air conditioning and heat pump systems ($300), and advanced main circulating fans ($50). Additional information, including specific qualifying information on each type of unit, is available at the Energy Star website, where you can also obtain access to claim forms.

If you were savvy enough to make any of these energy efficient improvements last year, head over to the website and claim your reward. You deserve it!

Common Heating and Furnace Problems

 

It’s not too early to think about your heating system’s proper function. We may be quite comfortable right now, but the cooler weather is around the corner and it’s important to be ready!

Common problems that we can quickly and easily help you with include:

  • Lack of Maintenance – Don’t be caught without proper heating because you’ve let your routine maintenance go undone. Not only is it a perfect time to get your heating system or furnace checked, but you can take advantage of our 10% OFF Service Special!
  • Furnace or Heating System pilot or ignition control problems – This can result in either no heat or intermittent function.
  • Dirty or Clogged Filters – A build up of dust and dirt make your system less efficient, can cause higher energy bills, create an unhealthy environment for your family and can impair the function of your heating system. The filters should be changed regularly for best performance. Contact us to help change your filters and thoroughly clean your system.
  • Poor Air Flow – Worn Belts, or Motor problems can cause your system to overheat, higher energy bills and lack of heating to your home.
  • Faulty Pilot Light or Electric Ignition – If your heating system burns gas, then you have a pilot light. Most systems normally have an electronic ignition control that lights when you turn the heat on. On older units, the pilot may need to be re-lit in preparation for winter. If you start the system and the pilot light refuses to stay lit, there’s a weak flame, or is orange without the strong blue color, you should call for a professional inspection as soon as possible.
  • Thermostat Malfunctions – This can cause no heat, or fan problems.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, remember Safety First and call in a professional to properly diagnose the problem.

We’re here to help and to keep you and your loved ones safe and comfortable throughout the colder months.

Record Breaking Heat Wave Taking Country By Storm



Since heat related ER visits can cost tens of thousands of dollars and replacing your air conditioner could cost thousands of dollars, doesn’t it just make sense to become a Customer Assurance Plan member (CAP member)? Especially when you consider the heat wave that is hitting the country right now.

Record Heat Wave

According to the National Climatic Data Center, 41 heat records have fallen or been tied in the past seven days, and even more in the past month. In the past 30 days, the number of broken daily records climbed beyond 2,360, hitting nearly 35,000 over the past year. In Indiana, where temperatures topped 100 last week, state health officials logged 46 heat-related complaints in one day, Thursday. The state averages 62 heat-related hospital visits per week in late June and early July, says Indiana State Health Commissioner Gregory Larkin.

Protect Yourself and Save Money

According to George Luber, a health scientist with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Environmental Health, heat waves caused 70,000 excess deaths in France in 2003 and 50,000 excess deaths in Russia in 2010. Luber says that an emergency room visit could cost up to $10,000 and even more to deal with the long-term cost of a stroke or heart attack brought on by excessive heat.

Here at Peck Heating and Air Conditioning we want to make sure that you and your home are ready for the coming heat wave. If you haven’t properly maintained your AC system  through the years then a record breaking heat wave will cause tremendous stress on your system, and it is possible that it will not function properly this summer when you need it most.
