American Standard Furnaces & Why you need them

American Standard is considered by most to be the affordable alternative to their flagship brand, Trane, and currently offer thirteen different furnace types within three different product lines: Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Like the names suggest, Silver is their least expensive series and Platinum is the most expensive, while Gold offers a mid-range option, though each has a different set of features. American Standard is a heating and air conditioning brand that manufactures residential and commercial HVAC systems. Originally formed in 1929 under the American Standard Companies banner, they were responsible for not just HVAC systems, but vehicle control systems as well as their popular brand of bath and kitchen products. In 1984, the company acquired the HVAC brand Trane and ran all three divisions until 2007. It was at this time that the company sold off the other two divisions and renamed itself Trane. They continue to sell HVAC systems under the Trane and American Standard brands, though both are now owned by their parent company, Ingersoll-Rand. American Standard’s Features Comfort Unique to Trane brand gas furnaces, and thus, American Standard units, Comfort-R is a feature designed to reduce moisture and humidity while also providing even heating throughout the home. The Comfort-R setting is designed to allow the blower fan to speed up slowly while the compressor loads. In this case, as it speeds up further, temperatures increase and moisture is removed more thoroughly. Hot Surface Igniter A durable hot surface igniter allows the burner to start electronically and safely for highly efficient operation. Unlike a standing pilot light that requires fuel for it to stay lit, the inclusion of a hot surface igniter means that there is no unnecessary gas wasted while the furnace is not in use. It’s not only an effective alternative to the standing pilot, but a safer one that won’t add unnecessary heat to the furnace during the warmer months while it’s lit. Vortica II Blower Exclusively available in Trane products and those under the Trane umbrella of brands, the Vortica II blower helps American Standard furnaces improve on air flow and noise reduction. This Vortica Advanced Air System is built using strong composite materials that resist rust, corrosion and cracking for increased durability. It also requires less fan power and, as a result, makes American Standard gas furnaces highly efficient with lower energy use. Finally, the Vortica II blower is quiet and allows for a level of comfort noticeable in not only the temperature but also in noise reduction. Finally if you’re looking for the most cost-effective American Standard model, make sure you call Apple Aire for free consultation.

How To Boost the Heat in a Cold Bedroom

Homeowners know when they're cold and they know where they are cold. They may not know how to light a pilot light, or air seal an attic floor, or balance a home heating system, but they know when they are cold. Bedrooms are often the coldest room in the house and most often people just live with it. Stick the kid in the cool bedroom, throw a couple extra blankets on the bed and tell them to finish their homework.

Dealing with a cool bedroom is frustrating. If you turn up the heat to warm the room, the rest of the house gets too warm. Shut all the heating registers except the bedroom and it puts too much back pressure on the furnace. Too often we see a household try to adjust the temperature of one room by closing heating registers in other rooms and soon they have half the registers in the house closed and the home heating system working overtime to satisfy the heating request at the thermostat.

Usually, the home heating system is designed by a professional Heating Contractor that went to HVAC school for several hours a week for a number of years. A Heating contractor must pass an apprentice program before he or she can even take the test for their journeyman license.

HVAC Education

During the educational phase of the heating and cooling training, they are taught how to do a heating load calculation on a home. They take the heating load and develop a designed heating system that includes furnace size, fan capacity, duct size, air flows, and register size. In other words, heating systems are designed to heat all rooms evenly and to work as a system with all registers open.

If you have one bedroom that is cooler than the rest of the house, one of two things has happened:

  • The heating system was designed by a contractor that barely passed the test, or
  • the heating system is broken. This is when you need to call Apple Aire

Recently, we had a homeowner complain that they got very little air flow out of the heating register in their dining room. The dining room was cooler than other parts of the house. With a flow hood, we registered a 75% decrease of air flow at the register as compared to the register in the living room. We removed the register grill, took a flashlight and mirror and looked down the inside of the heating duct.

With the mirror to see around the initial elbow, We could see that a flow damper valve was installed in the heating duct. Further inspection showed that all the heating ducts in the home had a flow damper installed near the registers. The damper in the dining room was the only one that was closed most of the way. The homeowner was not aware that flow dampers were a part of the homes heating system.

Heating Duct Damper

Flow dampers are a bit unusual in our neck-of-the-woods, We don't see them very often. Flow dampers are added to a heating system to allow manual adjustment of the flow of air to the registers. With dampers, the flow of conditioned air can be balanced so warm and cool areas of the home can be eliminated. To keep from putting increased pressure on the furnace fan motor, when one damper is closed down another damper should be opened up.

Sometimes, we believe a heating contractor may throw in a bunch of flow dampers when they lose their pencil and can't be sure of how big to make the heating ducts or how many registers need to be in a room.

6 Ways to Boost the Heat in a Cold Bedroom.

Here are 6 advises to Boost your Heat in a Cold Bedroom from Apple Aire.

Repair Heating Duct:

There is always the possibility that the duct system has a problem that can be fixed. Ducts can become partially or totally disconnected and flexible ducts can become pinched off or collapsed. This is the first and most important fix considering the cold bedroom. This fix will not only warm the bedroom but also increase energy efficiency and energy savings.

The first step is the inspection of the duct leading from the plenum to the register to be sure it is securely connected. Also, look for holes, crimping, or collapsed areas. Heating ducts damaged by animals is also a possibility that you should be looking for.

Disconnected heating ducts can be reconnected, but damaged heating ducts most often need to be replaced as they are difficult to repair.

Check for a Damper:

The sneaky heating contractor may have placed a damper in the heating duct and kept it a pretty good secret. Look and feel inside the duct by removing the register cover. Also, remove insulation from the outside of the duct, especially near the register and check for the telling signs of a damper. A metal rod with a small handle and a few anchor screws indicate a damper inside. Open the damper and your cool room problems may be over.

Balance Room Pressure With a Cross Over Duct:

Now we need to talk about room pressure and balloons. Crack the bedroom door open about an inch, turn the furnace on and see if the pressure builds up in the room and closes the door.

The heating system is a circle of air. Air is heated in the furnace, pushed through the heating ducts into a room and then sucked by the same furnace, out of the room, back through the return air duct to the furnace. If the air in the room cannot get back to the furnace, the room builds air pressure, like a balloon, which restricts the flow of conditioned air into the room in the first place.

With an increase of pressure in the bedroom, the conditioned air is forced through a different duct and into an adjoining room.

To fix the potential problem, many homes have cross over ducts installed in the ceiling or over the door that allow the air in the room to get back into the hallway even when the door is closed. In some larger, higher priced homes, they may have eliminated the room pressure problem by installing a return air register in every room.

To balance the room pressure and stop this problem, the two most used repairs are installing a crossover duct through the wall over the door or simply cutting the bottom of the door off so there is a wider gap between the door and the carpet. If this sounds complicated, make sure to dial the experts' number (303) 733-2813

Increase the Size of the Duct:

Maybe the Heating Contractor ran out of 8 inches ducting so they decided 6 inch was close enough. There is a real possibility that the back bedroom is cool because the heating duct system was not engineered correctly. When this happens, the best fix is to correct the mistake and replace the duct with a larger one. If the home is fairly new and the Contractor is still around, you might get this done as a freebie.

In this way, the cool room will get a larger share of the air coming from the furnace. This repair can still be a do-it-yourselfer if you're willing but most of the time Apple Aire are the right people to call. Heating duct material, both rigid and flex, can be purchased at your favorite home store. Some zip ties, a few sheet metal screws, a sharp knife and a pair of tin snips should do the trick.

If the heating duct size is simply too small to service the room, besides replacing the duct with a larger one, the only other fix that might work is installing a booster fan in the duct or adding a complete second duct and register.

Duct Booster Fan

Place a baffle in the heating plenum:

This adjustment can be very effective - especially in a manufactured home. A section of the main heating trunk ( the plenum ) needs to be opened up so a metal baffle or shield can be placed in the main trunk line that will direct more air into the heating duct that goes to the cold room. This is a very effective way to grab more of the conditioned air that passes down the main heating trunk and direct it in the direction you want it go. This is an inexpensive and permanent fix that works very well. 

Install a Booster Fan in the Duct:

This approximately $30 part won't create more heat, but it will pull more heat to the cool room. The booster fan should be installed as close to the offending room as possible and can be wired directly back to the furnace fan so the booster fan will run each time the furnace comes on. Installing it can be a pain make sure you consult HVAC contractor. A section of round metal duct either needs to be dropped down or added to the system. Be sure the duct system is air sealed or this added fan will pull unconditioned air into the system and lower your energy efficiency.

We know dealing with a cold spot in your home can be a frustrating ordeal. Hopefully, we have provided some solutions to the problem that will work for you and your home. The home heating system was designed to provide the comfort you are expecting and deserve and, with a little T.L.C., will provide years of energy efficient service.

WHY IS MY A/C BLOWING WARM AIR?

Having your AC blowing warm air or underperforming or is one of the most uncomfortable experiences. We count on our A/C units to provide us that timed and on-demand relief of cool air, and when it does not work properly you want the problem fixed as soon as possible. There are a number of reasons your A/C is not cooling properly. Here are some of the most common reasons.

Though it may sound silly, double-check to make sure thermostat is correctly set. It may have been turned off or inadvertently switched to the heat setting.

Restriction in air flow due to a dirty air filter may also be a reason you’re A/C is not cooling as expected. If the unit hasn’t had maintenance done in a while, an airflow restriction could be the result of dirty coils.

A bad compressor will also cause your A/C to blow warm air. This could be due to an electrical failure, refrigerant coming back to the compressor, or overheating. It is best to call a professional to confirm if your compressor is the problem, as it is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed problems with air conditioning units.

A/C REPAIR

A wiring issue may be a cause of an A/C not cooling or break down completely. Frayed, cut, or otherwise damaged wires can cause this. Damaged wires are often caused by family pets. To avoid pets chewing on wires, ensure wires are not sticking out or exposed.

A common culprit for an A/C not cooling properly is if the air conditioner is low on refrigerant (often Freon). Your A/C unit needs a proper refrigerant charge to cool your home. A Freon leak or depleted refrigerant can cause your unit to blow warm air. One way to tell if your air conditioner does not have enough Freon is if ice forms on the inside and outside units.

Air conditioner maintenance is best done in the spring, to make sure it is ready to go for summer and you do not suffer a breakdown during the hottest months. For A/C maintenance or repair anytime, call Apple Aire at (303) 733-2813.

Duct-Cleaning

WHAT DOES AIR DUCT CLEANING SERVICE INVOLVE?

The quality of the air we breathe has a direct effect on our quality of life, so we at Apple Aire want to be sure you’re getting the best possible quality from the air in your home. One way to be sure you are breathing clean air in your home, especially if you have central air and heat, is to have your home air duct system cleaned periodically. How often should you have your air ducts cleaned? The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, but we recommend doing it every two to five years, depending on your circumstances. In addition to regular cleaning, other times to consider an air duct cleaning service include when you move into a new home, or after a home remodeling project. If a family member is suffering from an unexplained allergy-related illness and you have taken every other possible step to decontaminate your home, you may want to consider having your ducts cleaned to see if the HVAC system was the culprit.

AIR DUCT CLEANING SERVICE

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends air duct cleaning service when you suspect mold exists in the air ducts, you notice a vermin infestation somewhere in the home, or you see insects or rodents entering or exiting ductwork, and/or you see a visible “poof” of dust released from the supply registers when air is exiting the vents. In most areas of Colorado, mold is not a common problem due to our state’s low humidity, but it is a good idea to have your system checked for mold and mildew, especially if your home contains a basement, whether finished or unfinished, as basements typically tend to have a higher level of humidity. If your basement is finished and used as part of your living area, you will want to ensure no one occupying these rooms is inhaling mold or mildew. With air duct cleaning service keep in mind that wet or moldy insulation inside air ducts cannot be effectively cleaned, and should be removed and replaced, as failure to remove the cause of the mold growth in the first place will simply ensure that mold growth will recur.

People prone to allergies are especially sensitive to microscopic elements you can’t see with the naked eye commonly found in air ducts, such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and other airborne contaminants. Asthma sufferers do not do well breathing air that is loaded with dust mites, as this can severely aggravate asthma symptoms and possibly cause an asthma attack. A thorough air duct cleaning service can help alleviate most asthma and allergy symptoms by removing any buildup of these contaminants. A good cleaning that addresses the entire system and cleans every surface that air moves across (not just the air ducts) can improve the air quality in your home and literally help you breathe easier.

DUCT CLEANING

When it comes to choosing who to trust with your home’s air duct cleaning, Angie’s List offers this advice; keep these points in mind when hiring an air duct cleaning company:

  • A good air duct cleaning service costs between $400 and $1,000 and addresses every aspect of the system that air passes over, including the furnace, air coils and central system. Good cleaners will use negative air machines with HEPA filters.
  • It should take a few hours. An air duct cleaner who is in and out in less than an hour probably did not do a good job.
  • Many quality ductwork cleaners use truck-mounted, outside vacuum systems that contain dust and debris outside the house.
  • Ask whether they follow the standards set by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association.

Before hiring anyone to clean the air duct system in your home, be sure to check them out thoroughly. Ask for written references with contact information from happy customers if possible, and get a written estimate before agreeing to have any work done.
