    You have spent countless hours researching the right HVAC system to work perfectly to warm your home efficiently in the cold winter months and to cool it in the hot summer months. What’s more, you’ve spent thousands of dollars to purchase it and have it installed by a reputable company! After having assisted you in the installation, we at Fred’s Home Services would like to help you...

    Due to the change in the weather in Cleveland, it was "all hands on deck" this week. I know I just wrote a week or so ago about the importance of being one of our Preventive Maintenance Agreement customers, but while I was out handling a few calls for furnace service and furnace repairs, the importance of having your heating and air conditioning maintenance completed each season was really driven home....

    I can't believe I am writing about furnace tune-ups already, but we have received a number of "no heat" calls. The season is coming and you need to have your furnace tuned up for the winter. We will do our full inspection of your furnace to make sure that it is operating properly and ready for the first time you need to turn it on and have heat. Our technicians will also make sure that it is operating...

    We are scheduling our Cleveland heating and cooling preventive maintenance appointments and preparing our customers for the long winter ahead. Preventive maintenance will give you the confidence that your furnace is operating at peak efficiency to ensure that you not only have heat during the cold months ahead, but also that you are not going to be wasting money on unnecessarily high gas bills. Our...

    Many times when consulting with customers about their Cleveland furnace installations, I notice an old Aprilaire humidifier attached to their existing furnace. Many of the homeowners say that they are having problems with dry, cracking skin or worse yet they are experiencing nose bleeds. The newer fan powered humidifiers certainly will help the situation, but if you are like our family, the furnace...

    Last week certainly forced everyone to think about either having their furnace repaired or a new furnace installation and some people had to make that decision with very little notice. I know that I have written many times about the importance of preventive maintenace on your HVAC equipment, but it was never more true than last week. We did an enormous amount of "no heat" calls and, literally, 85%...

    When it comes time for a new furnace or air conditioning system installation, you should consider the variable-speed technology available today. A recent article in the HVAC industry magazine HVACR Business, January 2014 written by John Gibbons supports my sentiment. Quoting Mr. Gibbons, "Though variable-speed units tend to cost more than single or two stage equipment, they can operate far more efficiently...

    On January 20th, I "blogged" trying to explain our service call and when it applies and when it doesn't. Apparently, I did a poor job of explaining myself and our company policy regarding the service call or lack thereof. We DO NOT charge a service call when a repair is needed. We simply quote the repair. If the customer has the repair completed by us, we only charge for the repair itself, not the...

    We are running a special on our new furnace installations in the Cleveland and Medina area. If you go to our website under "coupons" and print off the coupon, you will receive $250 off a complete furnace installation. No gimmicks. Once my technician or salespeople quote the price, hand them the coupon or simply ask for the $250 off and you will get it. In fact, most of my staff will offer it without...

With the approaching warm weather, it is time to schedule your air conditioning check up in Cleveland. Our website coupon for maintenance allows you to get your Cleveland Furnace and Air Conditioner checked and tuned up for only $140. If you only desire the a/c check up, we will do it for as little...

    We get many furnace maintenance, furnace repair and heating service calls to our office regularly requesting a free service call. The number of those calls has led me to think that we need to explain our pricing philosophy in a little more detail. We do not charge a service call fee, call out fee or service charge anytime someone needs a repair. Therefore, on any furnace repair, air conditioning repair,...

    I just went to a furnace service call for no heat. I can't believe what I saw. This installation was completely botched from the sale to the final installation. I went to a ranch home that was sold a 95%, Single stage furnace. During this Cleveland Furnace Installation, the installers decided that they would run the condensate line attached to a condensate pump in an unconditioned attic, without any...

    I heard about the Cleveland family that was poisoned by carbon monoxide due to their furnace not venting properly. This is the very reason that I continually stress the need to have your furnace checked each year for proper operation. When the flue becomes clogged or the heat exchanger has cracks, you will get carbon monoxide spilling back into the home. And as you see with the recent news story, the...

    At Fred's, we are always striving for new and better ways to help homeowner's improve the air quality in their homes. We have been using electronic air cleaners and UV light technology for years to help control certain bacteria and mold in homes. We are now offering another option with excellent scientific results. Kansas State University conducted a study to determine the effectiveness of ActivePure...

    Since the weather has turned colder, we are doing more furnace repairs and furnace installations. However, for those of you who turned your furnace on and found it to be working, I would encourage you to still have the furnace checked and tuned up. Even though the furnace came on and heated your home, it does not mean that the furnace is operating efficiently or even safely. We find furnaces everyday...

    As residents of Cleveland, we’re used to cold temperatures and large amounts of snowfall. However, as conditions in northern Canada begin to set up similar to last fall, Weather Forecasters and Meteorologists are predicting that colder air from the polar vortex will make its way down into the United States once again this year. With that threat just around the corner, below are a few tips that...

    Please be careful when reviewing and selecting a company to do your installation of new equipment. We are seeing all sorts of ridiculous ads. I saw one the other day that said "FREE Furnace with A/C install". It listed a particular furnace that would be "free" with the installation of an air conditioner. The value they placed on the furnace in the very, very small print was overstated by 100% and the...

    Summer is in full swing in Cleveland. Most people are worried about whether their air conditioner will be able to keep up and how high their electric bills will rise during this time of year. This is important, but now is the time to start thinking about the winter and the heating needs your home will have. A smart homeowner can take many steps in lowering their heating bill when the weather cools...
