What Is “Flame Roll-Out” in a Furnace?

Monday, November 21st, 2022

One of our biggest concerns as an HVAC company offering heating services to local homeowners is ensuring that natural gas furnaces operate safely throughout the year. If a gas furnace receives regular professional maintenance annually (and right now is a great time to schedule it!) it has the highest likelihood of presenting no safety concerns during its service life. 

Nothing is able to stop all safety worries with a gas furnace, and you might also have a furnace that is aging or which hasn’t received the routine maintenance it needs. In this post we want to caution you about a furnace safety issue that might occur, one which people aren’t often aware of: flame roll-out.

Boiler Problems You May Run Into

Although boilers aren’t as common a way to heat a home as furnaces, there are still many homes that use boilers in Castle Rock, CO. Boilers offer a different type of heating from furnaces and heat pumps: radiant heating, which doesn’t heat the air but instead sends waves of heat energy from one heated object to another. People often prefer the sensation of radiant heating to having hot air blown around, and boilers can spread heat faster and more evenly than other types of heating systems.

Boilers, however, can run into their share of problems—and not all local HVAC contractors work on boilers. We at Peak Home Performance are proud to offer our expertise when it comes to solving any issues you may have with your home’s boiler. Below are several of the more common malfunctions your boiler may run into and which we can resolve for you.

Do I Need to Get a New AC When the Compressor Fails?

Monday, August 15th, 2022

The compressor is the heart of an air conditioning system. It’s the component that puts refrigerant under pressure so it will circulate and carry out the process of heat exchange that cools down a home. Without a working compressor, a central air conditioner is nothing more than a large central fan.

The compressor is also an expensive component to replace if it fails. The conventional wisdom is that when an AC’s compressor burns out, the best option is to have a new air conditioning system installed rather than pay to put in a new compressor. Is this true, and is it always the case? We’ll look at this more below.
