Frank’s and Orca Heating & Refrigeration is happy to offer our Smith River, CA, customers two options when it comes to water heaters.
Many people are familiar with the traditional water heater. It works by storing water in a tank and keeping it heated to a preset temperature.
A tankless water heater is a new idea to many people. How does it work? As the name implies, there is no tank to store water. Instead, water is heated on an as-needed basis. A couple of the key benefits of a tankless water heater are that you are not heating water until it’s needed and you won’t run out of hot water.
Let the water heater professionals at Frank’s and Orca Heating & Refrigeration help you determine which type of water heater is best for your situation.
Indoor Air Quality
Between work and home life, the average person spends about 90 percent of their time indoors. Indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outside air. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranked indoor air quality (IAQ) as a top five environmental danger.
A well-insulated home can help with your energy bills by keeping a constant temperature, but that also leads to the same air being recycled through your home each time you run your air conditioner or furnace. Be sure you have proper filtration in place to prevent allergens and bacteria from circulating through your air.
According to the US Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR® program, leaky ducts in attics or crawl spaces can account for 20 percent or more of a home’s heating and cooling energy losses. This makes it difficult to keep your house comfortable and can result in higher utility bills. Some signs you may have leaky ducts include:
- High summer and winter utility bills
- Rooms difficult to heat and cool
- Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
- Ducts located in an attic, crawl space, or garage
- Tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system
Learn more about how you can detect, prevent, and fix air duct issues with the help of our professionals at Frank’s and Orca Heating & Refrigeration. Find out more about duct testing, duct insulation, and duct cleaning, as well as how they relate to and impact indoor air quality.
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
The comfort of your home not only depends on the air temperature but also the amount of moisture in the air.
Cold weather typically means dry, uncomfortable air. Dry air can cause respiratory problems as well as damage wood furniture. Whole-house humidifiers emit water vapor to increase the humidity in your home.
On the other hand, hot weather can mean thick, humid air. This can lead to condensation on your windows, mold spots on walls or ceilings, and blistering paint or peeling wallpaper, just to list a few issues. A whole-house dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air in your home.
Whole-house humidifiers can improve your indoor air quality, as well as positively impact the overall health of your family and health of your home. Controlling the humidity in your home will help protect not only your respiratory system but also your wood floors, furniture, and artwork.
