Ductless Heating for Commercial and Residential Properties in Akron, OH

Does your home or business have that one room that just will not keep temperature when attempting to heat or cool? Are there limitations in your building's design that will not allow for a new duct system to be installed? Or are you just looking for a simpler way to efficiently control the temperature in that space? If you're in the Akron/Canton area, Forquer Heating and Air Conditioning can help!

We offer an increasingly popular option for heating and cooling larger rooms of your home or commercial property that either do not maintain temperature or are not connected to your current system. 

Mini-Split Systems and Ductless Heating/Cooling

Mini Split Systems | Heating and Air ConditoningWe provide a ductless, mini-split-system which will allow you to heat or cool large spaces without the hassle of installing air ducts. (Are mini-split-systems right for you? Find out here) This two-part system includes a small remote-controlled console that is mounted in the desired room. The console then connects to a condenser unit that is installed outside of the building.

The mini-split-system is great for both residential and commercial applications. Customers have had these systems installed in their master bedrooms, on their porches, offices, and even in restaurants. For example, one customer installed a unit in his restaurant's dining room, and it provided an extra three tons of cooling which was much needed during those hot, busy summer nights.

Not only is this system a more convenient way to regulate temperature in a specific room, but it is also extremely energy efficient. On average, one unit runs at 22 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio), (what's a SEER rating? find out here) whereas a typical window air conditioning unit runs at 15 SEER. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the device. This keeps energy costs lower and has less of an impact on the environment!

Why Doesn't My Air Conditioner Reach My Second Floor

Many people find that they have a hard time cooling a particular part of their house. This is almost always the case with two-story homes when the second story wont keep cool. Often, people think that the solution is to increase the capacity of their current air conditioning unit. However, the issue is not the capacity to cool, but that there is insufficient air flow to your second story. Additionally, running a larger unit or even a second unit can have an adverse side effect for your house and your wallet. What are My Alternative Cooling Options? If your air conditioning unit is the right size for your home, but you still need to cool down either just one room or the whole second floor, youve got options! Air Filters Sometimes, the fix is quick and straightforward such as increasing your air flow. There are multiple ways to help the cold air flow upstairs. One example is using a different air filter. Replacing your filter with one that is less dense will give your unit less air

Why Preventative Maintenance is So Important

A very important question that many homeowners ask is, is it necessary to have my furnace and air conditioning unit looked at even though everything is running fine and they have been for years? The answer is one-hundred percent yes! Preventative maintenance is essential to keep your furnace and air conditioner running as efficiently as possible and as long as possible. Think about your car; would you take a cross-country road trip without checking the oil first? No, even if your car is running great, you still take that preventative measure to ensure your car makes the trip there and back. The same concept applies to your furnace and AC. Often times, people wait until their heating or cooling breaks down before they call in a specialist to look at it. More often than not, this procrastination costs them a lot of money when the whole situation could have been avoided with simple check-ups or filter replacements every now and then.

Which is better? Steam or Hot Water Heat? There are many different ways to heat your home. We typically focus on the most wide-spread in our day and age: forced air heating through a duct system. Today were talking about another form of heating and how to maintain those systems: steam and hot water boilers. A lot of the bigger, older homes in the Akron/Canton area were built with steam technology because thats where it all started. Its important to be educated on the type of heating your home has and the maintenance required for that heat source. Steam Heating Here we have a steam boiler [pictured right]. The boilers that were installed in these older homes came equipped with a sight glass so you can see the water level, and a low-water sensing device to maintain the water level. These steam boilers use the water to send steam up through the radiation, and then thats what is used to heat the home. Hot Water Heating After heating with steam, then came hot water heating, or what we
