Is My Gas Line Leaking?

Monday, April 4th, 2016

Natural gas certainly ranks among the most popular of all fuels used in homes. Natural gas stoves and ranges, water heaters, furnaces, boilers and even clothes dryers are all very prevalent in the residential sector. The popularity of natural gas is certainly not difficult to understand, either. Natural gas is quite affordable, and is rather clean-burning for a fossil fuel. The fact that it is piped directly to one’s home also makes it very convenient and reliable. You’ll never have to worry about running out of natural gas, storing it on your property, or forgetting to schedule a delivery. However, this fuel does require hookups and piping, and any problems with your natural gas line must be taken incredibly seriously. That is why it so important that you learn to tell if your gas line in Plainville, CT is leaking.

What Is a Wood-Burning Pellet Stove?

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

There are many options for supplementing your home’s heat during the winter. Some choices are fireplace inserts, wood stoves and pellet stoves. Pellet stoves have been around for a while, but over the last decade have become a great option for homeowners looking to save on heating costs. Pellet stoves operate differently from gas inserts or wood-burning stoves, as we’ll explain below, and they have a number of benefits that are worth considering. If you are looking to make better use of your fireplace in Plainville, it may be time to consider the installation of a pellet stove.

How Does a Pellet Stove Heat?

Pellet stoves heat via convection, which is the way heat moves through gases, including air. Pellets stoves heat this way because they blow the hot air generated in the stove into your living space. Pellet stoves require a small amount of electricity to operate. The heating cycle begins when the auger, a large, turning screw, feeds a small amount of pellets into the burn pot while the combustion fan draws air into the stove to help with ignition. A small, hot electrical igniter warms the bottom of the pot until the pellets light. The auger continues to feed the pellets into the burn pot until the flame reaches the correct temperature, as assessed by a small sensor that is attached to the rim of the burn pot. The heat exchanger inside the stove warms from the combustion from the burn pot, and once the correct temperature is reached, the stove’s fan blows the warm air into your home as the toxic combustion fumes are exhausted from the system through your chimney.

Some Benefits of a Pellet Stove

Here are some of the benefits a pellet stove can offer you:

  • Low ash – pellet stoves have a very low ash content, making them very easy to clean.
  • Outside stays cool – unlike the outside of a wood stove, the outside of a pellet stove (except the glass) stays cool to the touch. This is because the shell of pellets stoves are fully insulated.
  • No smoke – pellet stoves do not produce smoke, so there’s no need to worry about smoky rooms.

If a pellet stove sounds like a good option for your home, call Dynamic Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning today to schedule an appointment! We offer professional fireplace installation in the Plainville area.

Why Can’t I Handle Ductwork Repairs on my Own?

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Your ducts are an invaluable part of your air conditioning system, carrying cool air in the summer (and warm air in the winter) from a centralized unit into the four corners of your home. Because they’re often located in out-of-the-way spots, they don’t require a lot of maintenance beyond a cleaning every few years. But when they suffer damage, they can reduce or even eliminate your air conditioner’s effectiveness, and you need a professional to repair the ducts properly. Ductwork and other HVAC services in Plaineville, CT can be performed by a number of qualified services. “But why can’t I handle ductwork repairs on my own?” you ask. There are a number of reasons.

First and most importantly is that ductwork itself is often made of specialized material and often requires specialized tools to fix. Despite the name, you can just put duct tape over a breach. In fact, duct tape is often no help at all, since it can’t handle the shifts in temperature and will lose its adhesiveness after just a few days. Properly sealing the ducts means making us of materials such as duct mastic, as well as fitted parts and other components that require training to use.

Furthermore, the location of your ducts can be extremely tricky, and even the most competent laymen may struggle to reach it properly. Trained professionals, on the other hand, can use specific equipment and techniques to safely treat ductwork problems in even the toughest places. And when they run into trouble, they are licensed and bonded to ensure that you don’t pay a dime. If you run into trouble on your own, you’ll be forced to pay any additional costs involved.

All of that means that you need a trained professional for these problems rather than handling ductwork repairs on your own. Ductwork repair services in Plainville, CT are treated by the experts at Dynamic Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning. We do the work so you don’t have to, and we’re dedicated to your complete satisfaction during every step of the operation. If your ducts need repair work, then pick up the phone and give us a call today. You’ll be glad you did!

What You Need to Know About Commercial HVAC Repair

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Comfort inside your business is a vital part of its success. Excellent comfort means more content workers and happier customers, clients, and/or tenants. Whether your building needs to invite in the public or not, it should be an appealing place for anyone who comes inside. During the summer and winter, your commercial HVAC system in Plainville, CT is the most important appliance for maintaining this pleasant environment.

When any problem reduces your commercial HVAC’s comfort levels, creates a rise in electrical bills, or shuts down the system entirely, you should call Dynamic Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning right away. Our specialists in commercial HVAC repair in Plainville, CT will rush out to you, any time of the day or night, and restore your business to its pleasant temperature once more.

A few things you need to know about commercial HVAC repairs

  • They need specially trained commercial repair technicians: Commercial HVAC systems operate in ways similar to residential systems. But the commonalities are superficial, and when it comes to repairs, a technician who is only familiar with home air conditioners and heaters will not be able to get the work done. The size and power necessary to condition a business space and maintain comfort levels that will please everyone within require that these systems are more complex than residential ones. Make sure that you only contract a company with commercial HVAC experience when it’s time for repairs.
  • They must remain up to code: Any repairs to a major electrical system, such as a commercial HVAC unit, must stay within the rules of the National Electric Code or local amendments and alterations to it. The state, municipality, or city can close down a business due to violation of the code, and this can be crippling. Fortunately, any qualified commercial HVAC repair technician knows the code well, as well as any local changes to it, and will make sure your system remains within the law.
  • Timely repairs will save you money: If you or your employees notice something wrong with the HVAC system that doesn’t otherwise seem to affect comfort, you cannot ignore it. The problem will grow worse, and the eventual repair will carry a higher price tag. During that time, you will start to pay more to run the faulty system. Repairs done on time mean significant savings.

We always advise homeowners to move fast with repairs and rely only on professionals. But with commercial HVAC, the situation is more serious: you can’t afford to hesitate with repairs, and you must call licensed Plainville, CT HVAC commercial repair experts. Don’t put your company in jeopardy from lack of comfort or work that violates local codes: call the specialists at Dynamic Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning today.
