Franco Oyuela commented on Chris Morin's blog post Heat Pumps and Record Snowfall
"Heat pumps draw air from the areas surrounding them (all four sides of the outdoor unit). It is important to clear these areas of snow and ice build up in order to allow air to freely reach the heat pump. This will allow the heat pump to operate as…"

Franco Oyuela commented on Chris Morin's blog post Heat Pump Break-Even COP's
"Heat pumps are ideally suited for the Northwest climate, delivering efficiencies 2-4 times that of electric resistance space heating. That is because heat pumps don’t actually make heat, they use a refrigerant and a compressor to extract heat…"

HVAC: A Fast Growing Career Opportunity

Posted on August 3, 2015 at 1:26pm 4 Comments

During the sales process, it is inevitable warranty periods will be raised.  I remember raving about how the latest and greatest HVAC product led the industry with the longest warranty period.  Very often this only lasted a short period of time as other Manufacturer’s would continue to match warranties with their line.  Things often got out of hand as warranties have reached ‘limited lifetime’ on parts like compressors or heat…
