Why Every Home Should Have a Generator for Winter
Jan 10, 2019READ POST
Get the answers to your top general HVAC service questions for winter-time problems.
Answering general HVAC service questions are just part of the job for our punctual and polite professional heating and cooling technicians. Today, we’re tackling the subject of home generators. Why should you own your own generator for the winter? Let’s cover the biggest benefits -- and a few drawbacks.
Benefits of Owning Your Own Home Generator
There’s nothing quite like the security of power-on-demand, but there are times when the public grid fails. Winter storms can knock power out. Winter car accidents are a frequent source of power interruptions. Peak demand during cold spells can spell trouble for electrical supplies too.
It doesn’t get cold enough for most residents to worry about freezing to death while their power is out, but there are exceptions. Vulnerable individuals in poor health, or the very young or old, are more susceptible to extreme changes in weather. Cold spikes impact the immune system as well. “Colds” got their name for a reason!
Having a generator onsite means your HVAC system can continue running. It also means you can keep your frozen and refrigerated foods safe, and you can keep your security system up and running.
Drawbacks of Owning a Home Generator
Depending on the model and style of generator you buy, the hassle of fueling and running your backup power system might be more trouble than it’s worth. Talk to your McCall’s technician about easy and convenient models available in your service area.

3 Ways Incorporating a Humidifier Can Decrease Energy Spending
Jan 03, 2019READ POST
Why product upgrade benefits should factor into your energy efficiency solutions.
Did you know cost-savings are a big part of product upgrade benefits? Improvements to your HVAC system help you feel more comfortable but also lower your monthly bills. Humidity control is a perfect example. Just by adding moisture to dry indoor air, you can reduce your monthly heating bills.
Keep reading to discover three ways a humidifier can lower your energy bills:
#1: Turn down the heat without freezing.
Just like the hot, sticky humidity of summer makes the temperature feel hotter than it is, increasing air moisture helps your home feel warmer in winter without cranking the heat. Keeping humidity between 45 and 60 percent lets you turn down your thermostat without suffering. You’ll feel healthier and more comfortable too, as a humidifier also prevents your skin, eyes and nasal passages from drying out.
#2: Extend the life of your equipment.
Heating systems last 15 to 20 years on average. The easier you are on your equipment, the longer it will last, and the most efficient it will be every minute of operation. By using humidity to make your home more comfortable, you can turn down the heat and reduce the wear and tear on your unit. In the end, this small upgrade will offer long-term energy and HVAC benefits.
#3: Humidity control helps in summer too.
You can purchase a humidifier at your local big box store, or you can have your HVAC technician install a humidity control device capable of both adding and removing moisture to the indoor air. Professional products offer more value for the dollar and often come at a comparable price. You can use the dehumidifying features to feel cooler in the summer without blasting the air conditioner and save on energy - and energy costs - all summer long.

3 Safety Tips when Dealing with a Carbon Monoxide Leak in Your Home
Dec 13, 2018READ POST
General HVAC service questions aren’t always about the basics.
General HVAC service questions are commonplace for most HVAC dealers. One that comes in less often, fortunately, has to do with carbon monoxide leaks. If your carbon monoxide detectors go off, here are three safety tips you need to know:
Tip #1: Leave the House Immediately
Carbon monoxide is the gas that is leftover after the incomplete combustion of carbon. In simpler terms, it’s what your furnace produces when it burns fuel to generate heat that warms your home. It’s colorless, odorless, and tasteless. It’s also deadly. It replaces the oxygen in your red blood cells and reduces the amount of oxygen delivered to your body in your bloodstream. Because you can’t tell when it’s present, it’s critical to make sure everyone, including pets, gets out of the house if your CO detector goes off.
Tip #2: Call 911
Once you are outside, call 911 or the fire department. They can assist you when carbon monoxide is present in your home. They have the protective gear to be able to go into your house without risking their health with exposure to the gas.
Tip #3: Call in an HVAC Professional
If you have an issue with your HVAC system that’s causing carbon monoxide to leak into your home, you need to schedule repair as soon as possible. You cannot run your HVAC system until a certified technician has done what is necessary to service and repair the system.
Don’t take any chances when it comes to carbon monoxide leaks. Contact your local McCall’s dealer for any of your general HVAC service questions, including those about the safety and maintenance of your heating and cooling system.
