Repair Or Replace? We Can Help

If you’re looking for heating repair service, Cottonwood Arizona boasts one of the best companies in the State ! Yes, that’s us, Comfort Systems Inc. Did you know that the average American family spends around $2000 a year in fuel bills? If you are on a tight budget, that represents a lot of money. Imagine being able to take a nice percentage of that out of your annual spending. That would make things easier all around, wouldn’t it? If you have an older HVAC system, you are literally burning money. New systems have Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratings (SEER) that older systems simply don’t have. That means that new systems are very miserly with the amount of fuel they use, saving you big bucks over the years. Of course, it may be that you have maintained your HVAC well during its life, and if it’s less than ten years old (if you’re a heavy user) or fifteen years old (if you’re a lighter user) then it could still give you good service – even up to twenty years more. However, realistically, older systems do cost more to run, and they are much less reliable. Repairs and replacement parts are going to...

Winter-proofing Your Home

When it comes to heating in Cottonwood Arizona, TDK Comfort Systems are the professionals you know and trust. We want all of our customers to stay comfortable throughout all seasons while also saving money. Here are a few easy tips to keep your home toasty and your wallet full this winter: Ditch the draft. Small air leaks are one of the leading causes of wasted heating energy. Door thresholds are a major source of lost hot air. If you can see air from outside coming in from underneath your door, you are losing heat. If your threshold has screws, you can use them to raise it up using a screwdriver. If not, you can buy a product designed to slide underneath your door or you can even use a rolled up towel. You are also going to want to replace any old, worn out weather stripping around your doors or windows.  Finally, use silicone caulk or insulation foam to seal any holes that lead to the outside of your home. Seal your windows and arcadia doors. You lose a lot of heat through your glass. Purchase a sealing film for a few dollars at Home Depot or Ace. The film will...

How to Fix Your Home to Add Value

Whether you are living in a home that needs some fixing up, are looking to purchase a home that needs some work, or are already in the process of renovating a home, things can quickly become a little overwhelming. Rather than becoming caught up on a lot of costly repairs or updates that may or may not add value to the home, consider focusing on a few key areas that are proven to add value and entice buyers if that is your end goal: Paint it. Neutral paint like a light tan throughout the home, with a crisp white ceiling will make a home appealing to most and will lighten up a space. Make sure the appliances are new and up to date. A beautiful kitchen with an old black and white coil top stove can be a red flag for potential buyers and an eyesore for owners. Save money by painting cabinetry and replacing hardware, while also updating appliances. This also applies to HVAC units. If the heater and air conditioner are in good shape, just have them serviced and maintained by a trusted company like TDK Comfort Systems, the experts in all Cottonwood HVAC needs. Update floors, but...

Turn the heat down and bundle up with thick socks and a heavy sweater. Invest in flannel sheets and a heavy comforter for nighttime. You’ll be just as cozy and your wallet fuller. Perform Regular Maintenance: In order to keep your car running smoothly, you perform regular maintenance. The same goes for your heating system. Contact us today for Chino Valley furnace service.

Which Heating System Is Right for Your Prescott Home?

Regardless of what type of heating system you have in your home right now, there’s a chance that there’s a better option out there. The energy efficient heat pumps and furnaces of today leave many to wonder, “Which heating system is right for my home?” This blog explores the differences, and the energy efficiency levels offered by each of the two most common heating systems. Take the time to familiarize yourself with both, and feel free to contact your Prescott heating repair experts with any additional questions you may have. Furnaces: Furnaces use an internal burner to create heat which is distributed through the vents in your home via the blower. The heat is created by the burning of a fuel source, typically gas or oil. Your location and the availability of fuel sources in your area will affect your decision to choose a gas or oil fired furnace, although gas furnaces are typically more efficient than oil-fired ones. Furnace efficiency is measured by Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE), which determines the amount of fuel that is actually converted into energy as compared to the amount lost as exhaust. Trane offers highly efficient furnaces with up to 96.7% AFUE. Heat...
