How to Spot Boiler Leaks

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

Here in Clute TX, boiler technology remains a common staple for heating your home, ranking alongside forced-air furnaces as the most popular form of home heating. Boilers are reliable and efficient forms of technology, but they still develop problems from time to time. Leaks, in particular, are serious problems which every boiler own needs to deal with sooner or later. A good boiler repair service can help you hunt down the leaks and then fix them with all deliberate speed. Before you call them in, however, you need to detect the problem. Here’s a short list on how to spot boiler leaks.

The easiest and most reliable means of detecting a boiler leak is to notice a puddle of water somewhere along the system. Because boiler systems involve a large number of pipes, the leak could appear anywhere along its length. Look for problem areas near fittings and connectors, where a leak is likely to spring up.

Unfortunately, not all boiler leaks announce themselves so obviously. A small leak combined with the heat of the water could mean that it escapes in the form of steam, which won’t leave a puddle. In those cases, check the pressure gauge on your boiler. If water levels are lowered, the pressure will start to drop, meaning that water is escaping from somewhere.

Finally, a leak also means a loss of efficiency for your boiler, which you can feel with added costs to your monthly bill. If your utilities are going up despite the fact that you’re not using your boiler more often than normal, it may be a sign that it has sprung a leak.

Regardless of the cause of the leak, you need a trained professional to hunt it down and repair it properly. If left untreated, a leak will gradually get worse and could cause significant damage to your boiler system. In Clute TX, boiler repairs are the purveyance of Switzerland Air. We’re dedicated to doing the job swiftly and professionally, and we know how to spot boiler leaks before they can cause you and further problems.

Advantages of Using a Whole-House Dehumidifier

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

We live in a very humid part of the country. Texas is infamous for its muggy climate and no matter what the season, you can expect a lot of moisture in the air. Besides reducing comfort levels and making a hot summer day feel hotter, high humidity fosters the growth of mold and fungus, and can pose a significant risk to health. In Clute TX, dehumidifier technology installed in your house can help address some of those issues, and make your family more comfortable. Here are some of the advantages of using a whole-house dehumidifier.

Health constitutes the biggest issue. Reduced humidity levels will prevent the spread of bacterial contaminants, improving the indoor air quality in your home and reducing the risk of illness in your family. This is particularly pertinent if you or anyone in your household suffers from allergies. A dehumidifier can reduce the frequency of attacks and help keep everyone feeling happy and healthy.

Comfort becomes the second big advantages of a dehumidifier. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, comfortable relative humidity levels peak at about 40%. Our Texas summers can raise that level significantly, and our wet winters often do much the same thing. A whole house dehumidifier reduces those levels to something much more comfortable, turning your home into a haven against the wall of humidity building outside.

Finally, there’s the question of your furnishings and home to consider. High humidity can damage elements of your home: increasing rust, corrosion, mold on clothes and furniture. Lowering the humidity can offset those problems and keep your furnishings clean and undamaged no matter how much moisture is in the air.

The advantages of using a whole-house dehumidifier hinge on getting the right service to install it. Here in Clute TX, dehumidifier installation and repair services are provided by the experts at Switzerland Air. Our trained staff has years of experience handling whole-house dehumidifiers, and when problems arise, we can address them with the thoroughness and professionalism you expect. If you’re ready to leave our muggy Texas climate at the door, then pick up the phone and give us a call today! We also offer other indoor air quality services in Clute, Texas. Just ask about them!
