A typical Wisconsin summer workday for one of our air conditioner professionals is long, hot, and dirty. All day we repair broken air conditioners, recharge leaking refrigerant, replace motors, or deliver the bad news that a homeowner needs a new air conditioning unit.
In many instances, the air conditioners we repair are not working due to years of neglect from things like never changing filters, ignoring preventative maintenance, or not fixing the air conditioning unit when it starts performing poorly.
At K Komfort Heating & Cooling, we stress the importance of routine heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) preventive maintenance with each of our Kaukauna area customers. Preventative maintenance not only guards against breakdowns, but every study on maintaining heating and cooling units shows they operate more efficiently and last much longer than units never serviced.
Our knowledgeable and experienced team can offer you an affordable HVAC service contract so you do not have to worry about keeping your air conditioning unit maintained.
The heating and air conditioning publication The News reported that leaking ductwork in a home “could easily be leaking one-third or more of . . . conditioned air into the attic or building envelope before it ever reaches its final destination. The result is an HVAC system that works harder and longer, and consumes much more energy, to heat and cool a home.”
If more than a third of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system’s conditioned air is lost, imaging how long your system must run to get your Wisconsin home comfortable. Then consider how much extra that leaking ductwork is costing you month after month all year long!
K Komfort Heating & Cooling has the tools and expertise to test your Kaukauna home’s ductwork to find the leaks, seal them, and stop the loss of money and energy. If your home is more than 20 years old, it may be time for air duct cleaning to make sure the air you and your family breathe is free from dust and mold.
Call our team at 920-779-8838. We can check the condition and cleanliness of your home’s air duct system and offer a plan to keep your ducts dust-free and efficient. Request air duct service online today.
If you are considering a boiler for your home heating system, your big choice is to select a gas boiler or an electric water boiler. A Google search for “gas boiler versus electrical boiler versus oil boiler” does not help much.
There are conflicting opinions on which boiler type is preferable, but much of it depends on your Kaukauna home’s construction and the fuel sources available to you. As a Wisconsin homeowner, you are fortunate to have each boiler type available for your home installation.
What most people lack is someone to explain the pros and cons of each kind of boiler. You do not just want a boiler that will work; you want a boiler that is right for your home and will provide many years of efficient heating service.
To guide you through the water boiler selection, our K Komfort Heating & Cooling heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) team can perform a site survey of your home and explain the benefits and advantages of each kind of boiler. By calling us at 920-779-8838, you will be better informed and make the best purchase of a new home boiler system. Request boiler service online today.
There are some rooms in your Wisconsin house that have their own specific temperature needs. Maybe it is a wine closet or a gaming room. Perhaps it is your bedroom. Maybe it is a room that needs to be cool all the time even when the rest of the house is warm.
With one air conditioning unit controlling your whole house, there is no way to make one room cooler than the others. But with the expanding US ductless system , or mini split, market, a ductless heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is now the easiest and most affordable way to add a separate heating and air conditioning unit to that room.
K Komfort Heating & Cooling has seen the ductless system market in Kaukauna expand over the last few years with most homeowners adding ductless units to family rooms. Between the TV, video games, and all the people inside laughing and playing, the room can get very stuffy. A mini split system gives the family room its own heating and cooling control so you can always keep that room comfortable.
Do you have a room that needs its own heating and cooling? Call our professional team today at 920-779-8838 and see how affordable extra heating and cooling is for your special room. Request ductless system service online today.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
The worldwide geothermal heat pump market is expected to rise to over 6 percent per year by 2024. Homeowners in Wisconsin and across the country are opting for high-efficiency geothermal heating and cooling systems as an alternative to their conventional gas or electrical residential units.
A geothermal heat pump rejects and extracts heat from the ground instead of the atmosphere as is done with typical heating and cooling units. Condenser heat is carried through underground pipes from the geothermal heat pump and distributed into the soil a few feet below the surface.
Because the ground is a consistent temperature year-round, the heating and cooling equipment does not have wild swings in outdoor temperature as with air source heat pumps. This consistent soil temperature is one of the ways the geothermal heating system achieves such high operational efficiencies.
Call 920-779-8838 and we can show you some of the geothermal systems K Komfort Heating & Cooling has installed here in Kaukauna. We would be happy to discuss if a new energy-efficient geothermal heat pump system is right for your home. Request geothermal heat pump service online today.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Saver page advises that a “heat pump can reduce your electricity use for heating by approximately 50 percent compared to electric resistance heating.” That means a heat pump could cut your Wisconsin electric heating bill in half!
That is an amazing savings. In cities like Kaukauna that often see utility prices rise in the winter, that is a lot of money back in your pocket each month. K Komfort Heating & Cooling works with homeowners and small office building managers to calculate the annual savings of replacing their old, electric unit with a new heat pump system.
We walk them through how the different heat pumps on the market affect their installation costs and their long-term savings. For example, if buyers consider mini split heat pumps with very high cooling Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) ratings, the utility savings compared to the old units is even more amazing.
If it is time to replace your existing unit or you need a system for a renovation, let us show you the possible savings. Call us at 920-779-8838 and see what savings are possible for your home. Request heat pump service online today.
