No Ductwork? No Problem! Family Danz Offers Ductless Heating.

Do you have a room in your home that you’d like to keep warmer in the winter, but where ductwork might be an issue? Don’t despair – ductless heating for your home may just be the perfect solution. Ductless heating can be installed in places in your home where ductwork is either impossible or impractical, and provides a heating solution that makes those spaces more comfortable.

You may be wondering what, exactly, what ductless heating is.

A ductless heating system provides highly efficient heating designed to keep areas without ductwork as comfortable as those with. Ductless systems provide targeted heating to a specific, single space, but there are multi-unit options available, too. Ductless systems are not only used for heating; they can also help to balance out the climate of your home, and help you increase your current system’s energy efficiency.

Another benefit of ductless heating is how easily they’re installed and how unobtrusive they are. They mount directly onto the wall or ceiling, and blend well with most décor. They require no additional ductwork, and installation can be completed in just a few hours, with no patching or painting required. What’s more, ductless heating operates very quietly, so the only thing you’ll notice is the improved comfort level of your space.

There are many areas of your home that can benefit from ductless heating.

Ductless heating is perfect for areas in your home like converted attics, additions, finished basements, sunrooms and older homes. Outside of the home, there are some ideal commercial uses for ductless heating as well, such as storage rooms, kiosks and off-hours offices. When you choose to work with Family Danz, we’ll tell you about all of your options for ductless heating, and help you find the ideal solution for your needs.

Think ductless heating might be the right choice to help you keep your home warm this winter? Then give Family Danz a call. Simply call us at (518) 427-8685. We will be more than happy to assist you.

What to Do When You Need Heating Repair in Your Albany Home

Colder weather will soon settle into the Capital District, and that means the heating system in your Albany home will soon be busy. If you’re concerned about the health of your heating system this winter, it could be time to call Family Danz. Often, there are warning signs that let you know you’re in for some heating repair services. If you’re on the lookout for them, you’ll know when an issue is about to arise – and take proactive measures. Most likely, trouble with your furnace or boiler started well before this heating season.

Here are some important questions to ask yourself if you have heating system concerns, as they can be signs you need heating repair in your Albany home:

  • Did you notice your heating bills were higher than normal last year? If you answered yes, it might mean your system was working harder than it should have been. Or, if you have an older heating system, it may simply be losing efficiency.
  • Did you notice some rooms were warmer, or colder, than others? If so, it may not necessarily mean you need heating repair in your Albany home. It may, however, require some balancing and adjustments to your ductwork, which is a job for your heating contractor.
  • Did you have your furnace maintained by an HVAC professional? If you answered no, you may have some problems. Heating maintenance helps ensure all parts are well-oiled, no minor issues exist, and filters are clean.
  • Did you notice knocking or pinging sounds when you started up your system? If you have a radiator system, these noises can be common, but shouldn’t be too loud. If your furnace is making loud noises, especially screeching, banging or grinding ones, then you likely need heating repair for your Albany home right away.
  • Did you notice a smell that wouldn’t go away when you started up your system? It’s normal for there to be a “basement-like,” musty smell when you first turn on your furnace. After all, it’s sat dormant for months. But if the smell lingers, you likely need a filter change. Of course, in the event of a burning odor, turn your furnace off right away and call your HVAC dealer. If you smell gas, leave your home immediately and call the fire department.

You should know, you can count on Family Danz to help when you need heating repair for your Albany home. Our highly skilled technicians can help you, no matter what your heating concerns may be. Your comfort and safety are always our number one priority, and we always treat you like family. We can repair virtually any make and model of home heating equipment, and we’re happy to help you should you need a furnace or boiler replacement. Plus, we offer annual maintenance plans that will keep your heating system in great shape, this winter and for years to come.

So when you need heating repair for your Albany home, Family Danz is ready to assist you. Simply call us at (518) 427-8685 and we will be more than happy to help meet your needs.

Furnace Concerns? Now May Be the Time to Replace.

Dealing with furnace issues can be frustrating. This can be especially true if you’ve been suffering from costly breakdowns and outrageous energy bills. If you find you’re spending much more than you’d like to on repair costs and utilities, then it may be time to consider a replacement. This is especially true if your heating system is 10 years old or more – the older your system, the less efficient it is and the more likely breakdowns are on the horizon, if they haven’t happened already.

Family Danz can help you keep warm this winter for less.

Family Danz Can Help You Heat Your Home

It goes without saying that once winter makes its arrival, your furnace will be running again. If you have an oil furnace, you may decide to shop around for the best prices. Fuel oil can be expensive, and definitely is a significant part of your heating budget each winter. NYSERDA estimated as of Sept. 19, home heating oil prices in the Capital District averaged approximately $2.50 a gallon. Of course, those gallons add up when you’re heating your home over the long winter.

At Family Danz, we always strive to bring you the lowest possible price on heating oil.

We are pleased to offer our premium fuels to local residences and businesses. It’s always a priority that we offer competitive pricing to you, so you’re able to maximize your heating budget.

And, for your convenience, Family Danz offers budget plans to our home heating oil customers. Our oil budget plan gives you the peace of mind of regular, affordable monthly payments and no-hassle delivery. You’ll have the benefit of a fixed price on your fuel, so you’ll know what you’ll be spending each month. Additionally, you’ll have the added advantage of oil delivery, so you’ll never have to worry about running out of fuel.

Don’t be left out in the cold this winter. Choose a trustworthy, reliable fuel oil delivery company in your area to help you with your home heating oil needs.

Is it Time to Start Thinking About Replacing Your Furnace?

Nobody likes to think about replacing the furnace in their home. Furnaces are expensive, and too many times the need to purchase one seems to come at an inconvenient time. The worst-case scenario is experiencing a furnace breakdown that cannot be repaired, causing you to have to make an emergency purchase. But with some careful research and planning, having a new furnace installed in your home can be a bit more painless, and could even save you money in the long run.

Even if your current furnace is running well, it’s never too late to start planning for the future. Starting a designated savings account for future home comfort purchases can help you be better prepared when the time comes. The earlier you can start to save, the better. And, taking measures to preserve the life of your system from the first year of installation will help, too. That’s as easy as signing up for annual preventive maintenance. Of course, you probably wonder how you can even guess when you may need a new furnace. There are a few factors you can take into consideration that will help you know just about when you’ll need to have a new furnace installed in your home.

Age of Current System

If your current furnace is new, congratulations! You probably won’t have to replace it for at least a decade. And, if you want it to last even longer, make sure you get yearly preventive maintenance and change your filters regularly during months of operation. But, if your furnace is nearing 10 to 15 years of age, you probably want to start thinking about replacement, even if it’s running well right now.

Energy Bills

How are those monthly utility bills looking? Are they about the same as always (with current gas, oil and electricity prices factored in)? Or are you looking at bills that are through the roof? If your system isn’t running great, chances are it’s sapping your home energy supply. And, it’s a simple fact that older equipment is just not as efficient as its modern counterpart. According to ENERGY STAR, a 15-year old system is about 15 percent less efficient than a new system would be.

Need for Repairs

If you’re spending a lot in repairs for your furnace, you may be better off in the long run to consider replacement. Repairs can start to add up, and if you need to replace parts like the heat exchanger, motor or fan, costs will likely be higher. And, if your furnace is older or has not been properly maintained per manufacturer’s specifications, it may be out of warranty – so your out-of-pocket costs will be much more.

At Family Danz, we understand that replacing your furnace is a costly decision. That’s why we work hard to get you the best possible prices on high-quality, durable and efficient heating equipment. Not to mention, we offer the services you need to keep your furnace running well, year after year. And right now, we have special offers available to help you get into a system for much less. Simply call us at (518) 427-8685, and we’ll be more than happy to help you with your furnace needs.

Getting Ahead of Spring Allergies

For most allergy sufferers, March often comes in like a lamb, and goes out like a lion – a big, sneezing lion! Once spring arrives and everything starts to blossom, pollen is everywhere – both outside and inside. Not to mention, the rain and dampness of spring likely brings with it mold and fungus that can wreak havoc with someone’s allergies. What can you do to make your home a sanctuary once allergy season starts? You may want to consider installing some products that can make the indoor air you breathe healthier.

The first place you should start when it comes to fresher air in your home is, quite simply, your system’s filter. Today’s filters do a great job of keeping dirt, allergens and microbes out of the air in your home, but they lose their effectiveness and efficiency once they become dirty. When your system is being used frequently, your filter needs to be changed more often – and fortunately, this is something you can easily do yourself. Of course, if you’re worried about changing them on your own, the pros at Family Danz can show you how or do it for you.

Air cleaners are another way you can improve the air you breathe.

Air cleaners can help to remove allergens in the air you breathe in your home. They help to ensure your home’s air is healthier, cleaner and more comfortable for you and your family by stopping dirt, dust, pollen, dander and more from entering the air as it circulates through your comfort system. These systems are ideal for households that include allergy sufferers, those more susceptible to airborne germs like infants, the elderly, or people with compromised immune systems, and those sensitive to the effects of allergens like pollen and pets.

Of course, at Family Danz we’ll be happy to talk to you about how you can get healthier, fresher air in your home, from changing the filter in your home’s HVAC system to installing equipment that can provide advanced air cleaning. We can help you get the solutions you need, so you’ll be ahead of allergy season this year! Just give us a call at 518.427.8685 and we will be happy to help you.

Most surveyed felt that the temperature of their office made a difference when it came to productivity levels, and most preferred the temperature to hover around 71 degrees (72 for women, 70 for men.)
