Why Doing Good Business Is Important To Us!

There are many companies that just don’t do good work. The HVAC industry is no exception. In fact it is even more common than you know.

 

We hate seeing people being taken advantage of. That is why we are starting a homebuyers beware program.
 

In order for us to do business differently there are 3 specific things that we feel differentiate ourselves from the competition.

#1: The Trust Factor

Unfortunately, companies prey on what people just don’t know what they don’t know. After all, if you are calling a professional you probably are not an HVAC expert right? You need to find a company you trust.

So how can we build trust with you? This is how we do it.

  • We have the highest A+ rating with the BBB and 5 star review rating with Google.
  • We care about our customers. You are not a dollar sign to us. You are a real person.
  • We are not a high pressure sales company. Our team is focused on education.

  • We have the best in the business 10 year warranty on all equipment we install.
  • Once you become a customer we consider you part of our family and you will be treated like one.

#2: The Details

Some companies like to use big words. These can be confusing and sound like a foreign language. It can be meant to confuse you and make you think you need something you really don’t. Quite often they don’t know what they are talking about so they make it sound like they do. They will use terminology that leaves you looking like a deer in the headlights.

We know no doubt you have important questions. So how do we go about providing answers and information without overwhelming you.

  • We will provide easy to understand details and walk you through every step of the way.
  • Every estimate we send out is itemized and clear.
  • Our office manager is always available to answer any questions on any estimate.
  • We will never make you feel stupid or confused.
  • Because our technicians are the best in the business, it is easy to talk to them.
  • We pride ourselves on being upfront and honest at all times.
  • We do not believe in selling you anything you do not fully understand in both price and function.
  • We spend as much time as you need for us to explain and show you EXACTLY what is wrong. 
  • We know your time is valuable so we will not waste it.

#3: Go The Extra Mile

We call this “wow factor.” We take pride in going above and beyond. We always arrive prepared to keep your home clean. After every job is complete, we make sure we cleaned our worksite completely. We look around and try do a little extra.

  • We have helped hang pictures back on the walls
  • We have washed and refilled a pet’s water bowl for some older folks.

We want to do business differently. We pride ourselves on these goals.

Why Humidity Affects Your Home Comfort

Humidity can definitely affect your home comfort. As we all know Myrtle Beach is one of the most humid states in the USA. You know, those days you have to shower 5 times?

During summer months, high humidity makes the air in your home feel warmer than the temperature displayed on a thermostat.  I want to take a look at the effects of humidity, how it changes the feel of air, and what you can do to increase your comfort by controlling the humidity.

  • Hygrometers Now Better and Cheaper

One test instrument, called a hygrometer, is used to measure and diagnose humidity issues. Did you know that the first Hygrometers were manufactured with horsehair to sense humidity changes until the 1970s. This test instrument, called a hygrometer, is used to measure and diagnose humidity issues in your home.

Twenty years ago, a reasonably accurate hygrometer cost more than $2000. Today, reliable hygrometers are available for less than $100. The best hygrometer to get that will do the job right is to look for one that measures from 5% to 95% relative humidity (RH) and has a readout to the tenth of a percent or degree. Most hygrometers now measure humidity, dry and wet bulb temperatures, relative humidity, and enthalpy.

The Ideal temperature and humidity will depend on the location of your home, the homeowners age, and your temperature settings.

How Humidity Affects The Comfort Of Your Home

  • How to Measure and Compare Humidity and Temperature

To effectively evaluate current indoor conditions do the following:

  1.  Allow the room to stabilize with the system running for at least 15 minutes. 
  2. Set your hygrometer to display in humidity mode.
  3. Then simply take the readings.

For the most accurate results, do not measure near a wall or heat-generating appliances. Don’t take a measurement in the supply register airstream or directly in the sun. You will want to make sure you are using the hygrometer near the center of the room. Take temperature readings using the same test procedure, just press the button to display in temperature mode.

Take and record humidity and temperature in several typical rooms served by the same HVAC system. Then average the humidity and temperature measurements. If a room varies more than 3% from other rooms, search for the source of high or low humidity and temperature.

Compare the average building temperature to industry temperature and humidity standards. Most importantly, compare what you measured to what you  desire. Then figure out how to make the needed changes.

It seems like common sense but when the home humidity is low, find an opportunity to add humidity. When the home humidity is high, you’ll want to find a way to remove humidity.

Normally, you add humidity by installing humidifiers. You can also reduce humidity by lowering airflow. In cooling mode, system humidity removal may be increased by lowering the airflow over the cooling coil. Lower airflow decreases the coil, this increases humidity removal at the cooling coil and on occasion and especially in humid regions, you must control humidity by reaching outside the HVAC system and eliminating the problem at the building level. 

However there are a lot of variables depending on the type of system, size of system, and other things your unit may or may not have and it would need a professional diagnosis from one of our professionally trained comfort specialists here at Infinity Air Heating & Cooling. DO NOT TRY THIS ON YOUR OWN!

If you rent in an apartment or condo or multi unit complexes, unwanted moisture may enter or exit through roof and wall leaks. Moisture may seep into a building from surface water, rain, or landscape irrigation. Moisture may also enter a building from water vapor in soil that may wick or migrate inside. Too many house plants, depending on the type can also add humidity. Maybe not one or two plants but 7 or more maybe.

Internal sources of moisture include leaks from plumbing systems, or water vapor from showers, cooking, laundry, or plants.

The best solution to excessive moisture is to not allow it to enter a building in the first place. Once moisture enters a building, it requires significant cost and energy to remove it. Make sure to keep your landlord or property management company on top of this before you end up with a mold problem that could make you sick.

  • HVAC Systems May Cause High or Low Humidity

When it comes to discovering sources of high or low humidity in a building, most of us are surprised to find that HVAC systems are the force driving the problem.

That is when we are here to help! There are a few different things that can be a source of humidity in your home.

  • Return air leakage from unconditioned attics may be the worst source of added moisture in summer months. A 200 cfm return leak from a 120°F attic can easily raise the humidity in a home by 30% in several hours if humidity is high outdoors.
  • Supply duct leaks can also create moisture problems. When supply ducts are outside the building envelope and they leak, the amount of supply air may be less than the amount of return air in a building. This will cause negative pressure inside the building.
  • When buildings operate under negative pressure, moisture will be pulled inside whenever the fan is operating. This is especially true in the more humid regions of the country. Some building humidity levels are constantly high due to this effect.

HVAC Tips

5 Tips for Staying Cool During Summer

A hot and miserable home can take the fun right out of summer and living in Myrtle Beach your air conditioner works hard and long because the heat and humidity can be oppressing on your HVAC unit. 

Your AC unit doesn’t need to be the only tool in your arsenal to keep your home cooler. In order to minimize your energy usage and keep the thermostat set at a level where your unit can stay consistent with your temperature and comfort level, here are 5 tips for staying cool this summer.

  • Keep your blinds closed and curtains drawn. Sorry light lovers, but keeping it dark will really help keep your home cool. Did you know that 30% of the heat that comes into your home is because of the sun pouring in through the window? Sun blocking curtains have become very popular in the last 3-4 years. according to the Huffington Post. If you close the blinds in your home, it can save you money on your monthly electric bill, as well as lower the temperature by up to 20 degrees.
  • Set your ceiling fans to rotate counter-clockwise. Did you know changing the rotation of your ceiling fan seasonally can help the temperature flow. If you set it to rotate counter-clockwise in the summer at a high speed, it will create a cool downward airflow and push the cool air down to the floor, according to Delmar Fans. Obviously the opposite holds true in the winter.
  • Avoid cooking indoors. Now of course this does not mean do not cook anything as we would not want you to starve, however instead of using the oven try to use the stovetop or microwave inside. An outside grill can be your best friend instead of using the oven. An oven set on 350-450 can raise the temperature in your home by 5-7 degrees or more depending on how long your oven is on and how big your home is.
  • Fans, fans, and yes, more fans. Fans are a cheap way to cool down inside, along with helping circulate the air so it does not feel stagnant and stale. One neat trick is to get a bowl of rice and put some ice (or ice packs for less mess) in front of the fan. A very light cool mist of air will blow out and feels amazing.  Avoid using too many bowls as you do not want to put too much moisture in the air.

I hope these 5 quick tips help you stay cool and comfortable this summer. And as always, “stay cool to infinity.”
