ductless-acSpring is here and summer will be here before you know it. When that summertime heat hits New York though we know it is nothing to joke about.

That can be easier said than done through. If you live in an older home or a relatively small one, you may not think that you have any options because your home cannot accommodate ductwork.

End of Season HVAC Repairs To Watch For

March 2nd, 2020

heating-repair-serviceThe winter has been a long one, though, when you live here, they all seem just a bit too long. And if we think that wintertime lasts for too long, imagine how our heaters feel! We’ve been hunkered down trying to stay warm all winter, that is true, but our heating systems have been working very hard to accomplish the goal of providing us comfort on the coldest of days.

As you can expect, that much consistent effort on your heaters part adds up. Eventually, your heater will accrue enough wear and tear that it will need some repairs. And while a lack of heat is a pretty strong indicator that something is up with your heater, you shouldn’t have to wait until your home is icy to schedule end of season repairs for your Pearl River, NY HVAC heating system. Here are some indicators to watch for that will warn you that you should schedule a visit from a professional in the near future.

How a Filter Affects Your Furnace

February 17th, 2020

man-holding-air-filterThere are a lot of different parts within your furnace that allow it to make heat effectively and do its job throughout the colder months. From your heat exchanger to your blower fan to the housing your furnace sits in, and even to the seemingly inconsequential filter, these different parts are all vital to your comfort which is why maintaining them, and repairing them when necessary, is important.

Let’s pause for a  moment and take a deeper look at the role your filter plays. All too often, we find that customers brush off the idea of the filter needing much care because they don’t think it will have much of an impact on the operation of their heater. The opposite is true. While a poorly-maintained filter isn’t as dangerous as a broken heat exchanger or as loud as a blower motor in need of lubrication, it can still have a negative effect on your comfort.

We want to explain why your filter is important and how best you can keep it in good shape.

All About Leak Detection

February 3rd, 2020

plumbing-leakEB Design Air is proud to be offering its quality plumbing services to both Rockland and Orange Counties. One of our great plumbing services in Rockland County that you may want to know about is leak detection.

You might think that is sounds like a strange service at first. Find the puddle and you find the leak right? No quite. A puddle or standing water do indicate that you have a leak on your hands but they don’t necessarily tell you the location of that leak.

This is where leak detection comes in. Rather than making multiple holes throughout your home to attempt to find the leak, we have the ability to locate the leak and get it patched up without creating extra work in the process.

Want to find out more about this service? Keep reading and contact us to schedule a service when you are done.
