Hiring a heating and cooling company should be first checked with the Better Business Bureau to see if the company has a good rating. If there are many complaints or they have a low grade average then you should look into the complaints and see what the problem is noting there is no fraud.

The next important thing is to check to see if the company is bonded. This means that the company has insurance and if something was to happen that was their fault. For example, a furnace has a gas leak and somebody gets sick; the company has insurance to cover their damages. You must consider the units that are being purchased and that they are not only of high quality but also have a acceptable life insurance on their units. There are many companies out there that claim to be doing heating and cooling, but the reason there is so many is due to lack of good workmanship. Since that is the case, the industry always has room for another outfit to improve. It can be in quality or simple working in a clean manner.

Many times the duct work must be replaced. To do this, we must remove sheet rock and replace the duct work. This can be messy and if not creful, there will be sheetrock being tracked through your whole house from the employees walking all over your belongings. The belongings will have a thin cover of white sheet rock dust.

Another good way to check your heating and cooling contractor is by calling the local city hall and finding out if the company is registered and licensed or are they just a fly by night outfit. City Hall will also advise you if they are bonded and if they are bonded for what the city requires. Every city has different codes.

One of the last things is to interview the contractor. Talk,and share with him. Look at what ideas he has on your new unit and if you and him don't start a business relationship, then this is probably the wrong fit. Overall, make sure you are comfortable with him. Don't stop at the first one; get several estimates. The bottom line is to see who offers you more for your money.

We want to make sure our Framingham customers are happy, so leave the heating and cooling projects up to Obie Comfort Solutions. Don’t delay and call (617) 415-1522 today!

What In The World Is A Heat Pump?

By: Oberlan Rosa May 19, 2016
  •  

    Don't worry, it's not a bomb. A Heat Pump looks a lot like a regular outdoor unit part of a central air conditioner. While I agree that ‘heat pump’ is a rather funny choice of name for this equipment it may be fit enough to help someone to understand its role. In simple words, the heat pump does the same thing as an air conditioner does with one exception - it can also heat your home.

HVAC for Server Rooms

By: Oberlan Rosa August 08, 2015

 

The last thing you want to have is your server crashing due excessive heat, but most server rooms were originally designed to be nothing more than a broom closet, most old office buildings around Boston weren't designed with this need in mind, and you end up having to leave the door open so the room will have the same temperature of the hallway, which can lead to unauthorized people messing up with your equipment, somebody accidentally closing the door (causing it to overheat) or even people stealing your servers. Things that can be done to eliminate the problems are:

 

  1. Installing a large return grill allowing air to circulate inside of the room, usually one low and other one high, that way hot air will come out of high opening and cooler air comes in through the lower opening. In order to make it more efficient you can also add a fan to force the circulation, but depending on your cooling requirements you may have to add an air conditioning system.
