How UV Lights for HVAC Work to Purify Your Home Air



Categories—Indoor Air Quality

Did you know there’s a simple, yet powerful way to purify your home air by using ultraviolet light? It’s true—using the power of the sun, UV lights for HVAC clean discreetly and thoroughly. Discover the benefits of these powerful little lights and why you need them below, then call the Bryant® pros at S&R Heating & Cooling for installation details: 651-429-0001.

What Do UV Lights Do?

Though you may not see them, airborne pollutants are floating through your home right now. They can be brought in on your clothing, by pets, or emitted by products you use every day. Mold and bacteria are also common contaminants that affect the quality of the air you breathe.

Fortunately, UV lights can help kill these contaminants for you. They’re designed to zap the germs and dirt as they enter your HVAC system, preventing recirculation and leading to healthier air in every breath. These lights can even help reduce the amount of dust accumulating on your HVAC systems’ coils, resulting in a more efficient system.

How Are UV Lights for HVAC Installed?

The best part of UV light installation is that it’s simple. They’re installed within the ductwork of your HVAC system, so you’ll never see them—or hear them. They work silently in the background to keep your air fresh, so you can sit back and relax knowing you’re breathing in the highest quality air possible. You can even pair them with other indoor air quality solutions like air purifiers and exchangers for maximum impact.

What Are Some Other Benefits of UV Lights for HVAC?

UV lights provide a low-maintenance solution to cleaner home air. They offer many other benefits, including:

Weakening allergy and asthma symptoms

UV lights kill the contaminants that can bother anyone in your home who has allergies or asthma.

Preventing airborne diseases and virus circulation

Once these germs make it into your HVAC system, they’re no match for UV lights. This means they won’t circulate through every room of your home.

Eliminating odors

Fresher, cleaner air means fewer odors, which makes your home more pleasant.

Reducing dust

Cleaner air leads to less dust that accumulates on surfaces—which means less cleaning for you.

Ready to Learn More About UV Light Protection?

Are you ready to learn more about how you can increase your indoor air quality with UV light installation? S&R Heating can answer your home comfort questions. We’ll help you choose the right systems to address your concerns. Call us today at 651-429-0001 or contact us online.

What to Do If Your Air Conditioner Shuts Off Every Few Minutes



Categories—Home Comfort
Sweaty woman whose air conditioner shuts off every few minutes adjusts thermostat.

In the summertime, there’s no question: You need reliable A/C. So if your air conditioner shuts off every few minutes, it can be a real inconvenience. Fortunately, the Bryant® pros at S&R Heating & Cooling are here to help. Below, we explain what could be causing this problem—often called “short-cycling”—and offer a few ways to fix it. Have questions? Call us for service at 651-429-0001.

Check Your Air Filter

If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, it could be clogged with excess dust and dirt. And if the clog is severe enough, your system can’t run, so it shuts down. Compare it to a vacuum that’s full of debris. When there’s nowhere for it to go, the entire operation stops. Luckily, the fix is simple: Replace your air filter. Be sure to check it once a month to prevent serious clogs that could prevent your unit from functioning properly.

Change the Batteries in Your Thermostat

It sounds silly, but sometimes the problem with your air conditioner is with your thermostat, not the unit itself. If the thermostat can’t properly detect the temperature, it will affect how the air conditioner runs. Try changing out the batteries and restarting it to see if that fixes the issue.

Make Sure Nothing Obstructs Your Unit

It’s not uncommon for wind or a storm to blow leaves and other debris into your air conditioner. If there’s too much blockage, the system might not be able to run properly. Check around the A/C to make sure there’s no overgrown shrubbery, litter, or anything else blocking your unit.

Schedule Air Conditioner Maintenance

If you haven’t had maintenance performed on your air conditioner in a while, now is the time to schedule it. Occasionally, dirt and grime can build up in your system, which can prevent it from functioning correctly. Your unit could also be low on refrigerant—a repair that needs to be taken care of by the professionals at S&R Heating.

Call S&R Heating for Repair

If you’ve checked the items above and your system continues to shut off every few minutes, chances are there’s a part that needs to be replaced. S&R Heating can take care of the issue promptly and reliably, bringing your unit back to working order as quickly as possible. Call us when you need air conditioner service at 651-429-0001 or send us a message online.

6 Awesome Benefits of Zoned Heating and Cooling



Categories—Home Comfort

Setting up zoned heating and cooling in your home allows you to take total control of your comfort. But it also has many more benefits for you and your family. Whether you have relatives with different opinions on a comfortable temperature, or a home with rooms that aren’t always in use, zoning provides a solution for everyone. Read about how this system works below, then call S&R Heating & Cooling when you’re ready to set one up in your own home.

How Does a Zoned Heating and Cooling System Work?

Zoning allows you to create separate areas within your home, each of which can be controlled with its own thermostat. This means you can keep one “zone” of your home warmer or cooler while maintaining a completely different temperature in another. Each space can be customized based on your needs—whether you want to control one room or an entire floor separately from the rest of your home.

Why Choose a Zoning System?

1. Energy Efficiency

With zoned heating and cooling, you’re only using energy to control the rooms you need to. So instead of paying to heat your whole house, you might only be heating one room or floor—which means greater energy efficiency and lower utility bills. Additionally, only using one part of your HVAC system at a time can reduce wear and tear on the units.

2. Improved Comfort

Let’s face it: Your family members each have a different opinion on what the most comfortable temperature is. With a zoning system, everyone under the same roof will be happy.

3. Better Indoor Air Quality

By only running your HVAC through the rooms you need, you’re blowing less air through the vents. This results in less distribution of indoor air pollutants being circulated through the home, which increases air quality.

4. Regulated Temperatures

It’s common to experience varied temperatures in different areas of the home—some rooms are just colder than others. Heat rises, so in multi-story homes, the upstairs is sometimes warmer than down. Additionally, if you have a room over a garage, it could be cooler. Installing a zoned heating and cooling system takes care of these irregularities by allowing you to control each section individually and even everything out.

5. Convenient Control

Zoned systems can be controlled right from your smartphone, which means you can control the individual zones from the comfort of anywhere in (or outside) your home.

Get Your Zoned Heating and Cooling Set Up With S&R

Now that we’ve explained the many benefits of zoning, you might be considering installation in your home. The good news is that installation is simple—so once you’ve decided how to split your home, you’ll be able to enjoy perfect comfort in no time. When you’re ready to set up zoned heating and cooling, call the Bryant® experts at S&R at 651-429-0001 or send us a message online.

3 Easy Ways to Check Your Furnace Efficiency



S&R tech in dark sweater checks customer's furnace efficiency.

Furnace efficiency is something we take for granted. In fact, as long as it’s warm and cozy in your home, your furnace is not something you think about too often. However, even if everything is running fine, you should be looking for signs that your furnace needs some attention. The Bryant® pros at S&R Heating & Cooling have a few items you can check to ensure your system is at its best. And if you’re having issues with any aspect of your HVAC system, give us a call for service.

What Are the Benefits of an Efficient Furnace?

Besides the obvious benefit of keeping you warm and cozy all winter long, an energy-efficient furnace can lower your energy bills. It’ll also keep your system from working harder than necessary to do its job—placing less stress on the system and ensuring your furnace lasts for many years to come.  A quietly running system and increased air quality overall are two more big benefits.

Plus, the more efficient your furnace, the less energy it uses—meaning it’s better for the environment.

How to Check Your Furnace Efficiency

Now that you know why it’s so important to maximize your furnace efficiency, here are some things you can check to make sure everything runs properly no matter the time of year:

#1 – Monitor Your Energy Bill

One sign that your furnace is running efficiently is a consistent (and reasonable) energy bill. If you notice large spikes in the amount you owe without much of a change in heat usage in your home, it could mean that your furnace efficiency is in question. Save and compare bills from each peak season to monitor noticeable changes.

#2 – Replace Your Air Filters

Replacing your air filters as recommended is a simple way to be sure your furnace efficiency is at its best. A clogged filter can make it more difficult for your furnace to blow warm air through your home’s ducts. If you notice it’s extremely dirty when you change it, consider switching it out more frequently—once every one to three months is usually best.

#3 – Schedule Routine Maintenance

There are some issues that can only be seen by your HVAC professionals. That’s why scheduling routine maintenance is a major component of safeguarding furnace efficiency. The professional and knowledgeable techs at S&R can detect small problems and fix them before they become more serious. Not only that, but they’ll also clean and tune your system to make sure every part is functioning correctly.

Maximize Furnace Efficiency With S&R

Whether you have a simple question about your HVAC system or are in need of repair or emergency service, S&R should be your first choice for all of your HVAC needs. We’ve been dedicated to keeping Twin Cities residents cozy and comfortable for more than 30 years—so next time you need HVAC help, call us or send us a message online.

4 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Furnace



Two technicians replace your furnace in homeowner's basement.

Do you need to replace your furnace? Whether you’ve needed repairs before or this is the first time, S&R Heating & Cooling is here to provide the support you need. It can be hard to know when to draw the line with furnace repairs—sometimes, installing a new furnace is the most cost-effective option.

Whether you need a simple repair or a complete furnace replacement, the Bryant® pros at S&R have you covered. Discover four signs it might just be time to replace your furnace below. Have questions? Call us today.

#1: Your House Just Isn’t as Cozy as It Should Be

If your home isn’t warm enough despite you cranking the thermostat—or if your furnace is blowing cold air—it could be a sign that your furnace has given out. While this might be fixed with a simple repair, chances are that if you’ve had this issue before, the problem is more complicated than that. Call S&R to take a look and diagnose your issue.

#2: You’ve Had the Same Furnace for 15-20 Years – Or Longer

Sometimes, we must face the inevitable: Every furnace needs to be replaced at some point. For most homeowners, this happens when their existing systems are between 15 and 20 years old. At that point, consistent repairs are not cost-effective. Also, a furnace at this age is not likely to be running as efficiently as it could be. This means it’s working harder than it should to keep your home comfortable.

#3: Your Energy Bills Are on the Rise

One way to easily tell if your furnace has an issue is to check your energy bill. If it seems exorbitantly high, it’s a sign that something isn’t right. If you see this in addition to some of the other issues we’ve mentioned, it’s a strong possibility that you could be looking at furnace replacement. The good news? Even though an installation will cost you upfront, you should notice savings on your energy bills over time.

#4: You Often Need to Call for Repairs

Every furnace needs maintenance or a repair from time to time. But if you find you need to call for service more than once or twice per season, that could indicate more serious issues with your furnace. At some point, it makes more sense to replace your furnace than continue to spend money on keeping the old one running.

Call S&R to Help With Your Furnace Decisions

If you still aren’t sure what to do with your existing furnace, call the S&R team to help you make the decision. We’ll offer you sound and honest advice on your options. If a new furnace makes the most sense, we’ll size and price one for you based on your home design and budget. But if you’re not ready for a new furnace just yet, in most cases we can get your existing one up and running quickly. Call or send us a message online.

Here’s Why Your Furnace Is Blowing Cold Air



Male homeowner sits bundled up on couch freezing thanks to a furnace blowing cold air.

Many homeowners dread that moment when turning on the furnace becomes a necessity. But what’s even more disappointing than the end of summer is finding your furnace blowing cold air. Not only can it be uncomfortable, but if not addressed quickly, it can also be dangerous since cold temperatures can lead to frozen or burst pipes. Fortunately, S&R Heating & Cooling is here to help. Below are some common reasons why your Bryant® furnace might be blowing cold air—and what you can do about them.

Your Thermostat Is Set Incorrectly

A faulty thermostat or incorrect setting could be the cold-air culprit. Check to make sure your thermostat is on and that the fan is set to “Auto” rather than “On.” This ensures that your thermostat is only signaling the furnace when the temperature dips below the number you’ve set—and that it’s not constantly running.

Also, check your device to make sure it’s functioning properly. Something as simple as a blown fuse can keep your thermostat from turning on and prevent your furnace from warming your home.

Your Air Filter Needs to Be Replaced

When was the last time you replaced the air filter in your furnace? If you’re not sure or can’t remember, chances are it’s time to switch it out. If you wait too long in between replacements, the filters can become clogged, which can reduce the effectiveness of your HVAC systems. Check your air filter to make sure it isn’t full of dust and grime. And in general, be sure to replace them about every 90 days, or as often as recommended by your furnace model to avoid problems.

Your Furnace Needs Maintenance

Regular furnace maintenance can keep problems at bay, including your furnace blowing cold air. Over time, the components of your furnace can become dirty or even worn out.

With this service, S&R will clean your entire unit from top to bottom. This ensures maximum efficiency—and comfort—all winter long. Additionally, with annual maintenance, the technicians at S&R can identify issues and make small repairs before they become major problems.

Find the Right Solution

If you try these tips and find your furnace is still blowing cold air, the next step is to give the experts at S&R a call. We can come out right away to diagnose your issue and recommend the proper plan of action to get your furnace up and running as quickly as possible. Whether it’s a simple repair, general maintenance, or furnace replacement, we’ve got you covered. Call us or send us a message online for quick and dependable service. We’re available 24 hours a day to address your emergency heating needs.

How to Improve Air Quality in 3 Easy Steps



Categories—Indoor Air Quality
S&R techs give thumbs up near furnace after teaching homeowner how to improve air quality.

Your home is where you spend most of your time. That’s why taking steps to ensure good indoor air quality is so essential. At S&R Heating & Cooling, we understand that—and we’re here to help. Below, find our guide on how to improve air quality in your home (and call us with questions).

3 Steps to Better Indoor Air Quality in Your Home

Diagnose the Problem

From unbalanced humidity levels to poor ventilation, there are many reasons why your air quality isn’t what it should be. That’s why it’s so important to know what issues your home is facing. Does your air get too dry? Do you or someone in your family have bad allergies or asthma?

If you don’t know, that’s okay. The pros at S&R are well-versed in IAQ issues and can easily help you pinpoint the problem.

Find the Right Solution

Diagnosing the problem is the hard part. Finding the solution is the easy one.

For example, say your indoor air gets dry in the wintertime. The right solution would be a whole-home humidifier, which releases moisture into your air to fix the problem. Or, if your allergies or asthma symptoms are worse than they should be, an air purifier can help by capturing and eliminating allergens and pollutants.

No matter what issue your home faces, there’s always an answer for air quality improvement.

Maintain High Standards for Your Home Air

Systems like humidifiers and purifiers are designed to help fix indoor pollution problems. But one of the biggest ways you can improve indoor air quality is by reducing the need for them in the first place.

Pollution can stem from a number of household activities and items, including cooking, cleaning products, and even your carpet fibers. If you take steps to reduce their impact—like vacuuming regularly and running a ventilation fan when you cook—you can keep your home extra healthy in the long run and let your purifier or air cleaner do the rest.

3 Common Air Conditioner Problems (and How to Fix Them)



Categories—Air Conditioning
S&R Heating & Cooling Technicians

We’ve all been there when you’re having air conditioner problems and the system isn’t quite working. Fortunately, the award-winning team at S&R Heating & Cooling has seen every issue in the book—and fixed them, too. Below, we’re laying out some common AC problems and solutions you can use to stay comfortable.

How to Fix Your Air Conditioner Problems

System Isn’t Working

Of course, you could call in the pros at S&R for help, but you can try to troubleshoot it yourself before you do.

First, check the thermostat. It sounds silly, but if your thermostat isn’t on—or the batteries are dead—it could be what’s making you think your system isn’t working. Next, check the circuit box to see if any breakers have tripped. If none of that helps, then contact us for fast and efficient repair.

System Is Blowing Warm Air

The last thing you need in the hot summer is an AC blowing warm air. Thankfully, this problem oftentimes has a simple solution: replacing an old air filter. Over time, airborne contaminants build up on the filter, causing it to get clogged and dirty, which can block proper air flow. Switch out the filter for a new one and see if that fixes your problem. If not, it could be a refrigerant issue—which means it’s time to contact the experts.

Hot Spots in Your Home

Every house has those areas that simply don’t stay cool as well as others. It’s not necessarily the air conditioner’s fault—it likely has more to do with factors like window orientation, room size, and even where your vents are placed.

To start, make sure all your vents are open and unblocked. It might seem like a good idea to close grates in certain rooms in order to funnel air to others, but it actually puts more stress on your AC.

Next, keep blinds or curtains closed in those warmer areas during the day. The sun adds a lot of heat to your home, which could be canceling out the cool air from your AC.

However, if you’ve taken these steps and your room is still sweltering, S&R has got you covered. From adding dampers to helping redistribute cool air, we have the expertise to help.

Just How Important Is Your Home Air Filter?



Categories—Indoor Air Quality
How Air Filter Works

When you think of your HVAC systems, your furnace and air conditioner are going to come to mind first. But did you know that your home air filter is just as essential to your comfort? It’s a small component that makes a big difference—and the Bryant® experts here at S&R Heating & Cooling explain why below.

What Does Your Air Filter Do?

In short, it helps you breathe safe, clean air every day. The filter slots into your air ducts and is designed to capture airborne contaminants like dust, dirt, and pet hair that circulate through your home. By removing them from your air, they help ensure less pollution and keep you breathing healthy air all year long.

Why Do You Need to Replace Them?

The longer you go without changing your home air filter, the more contaminants will build up on it. The problem? That can clog the filter, which causes it to lose efficiency and can even block air from flowing through your ducts. In turn, that causes your heating and cooling systems to work harder to circulate air, which can put unnecessary stress on them and eventually cause them to break down. Plus, all those pollutants your filter would otherwise catch will continue floating around your air.

So How Often Should You Replace Your Filter?

To keep air moving and pollutants from circulating, it’s best to replace standard one-inch filters once every one to three months—or more often if you smoke indoors or have pets. If you have a high-efficiency media filter, swap yours out for a new one every six to 12 months.

Have questions on what size to use? Home air filters have their dimensions posted on the side, so make note of the size and stock up on them.

Are There Other Ways to Protect Your Indoor Air Quality?

Definitely! While a home air filter replacement always works, we have many air quality systems that can help you. From air purifiers that eliminate pollutants to dehumidifiers that reduce moisture levels, we have everything your home may need. All you have to do is call or contact us and let us know what issues you might be facing.

5 Simple Energy-Efficiency Tips to Help You Save



Categories—Home Comfort
Satisfied homeowners give thumbs up next to furnace after using energy-efficiency tips.

Looking for energy-efficiency tips to help you save money as we transition into spring? The experts at S&R Heating & Cooling have you covered. Below, we’re sharing some of our favorite ways to save energy. (And when you’re ready for number five, give us a call at 651-429-0001.)

Replace Your Air Filter

If you haven’t done so in the last couple of months, be sure to change your furnace air filter now. These filters are helpful in protecting your air quality, trapping pollutants like dust and dirt as they flow through your ducts. However, they get dirty over time, and the dirtier they get, the harder your furnace (and air conditioner) has to work to push air past them. That can lead to an increase in energy consumption as well as put excessive stress on your HVAC systems.

Utilize Your Blinds and Curtains

During the day, keep your blinds, shades, and curtains open to let the sunshine in—it’s like a free source of heat. That way, you can set your thermostat lower without sacrificing any comfort. At night, close all the curtains back up to help keep your heat from leaking through windows.

Switch Your Ceiling Fan Direction

Did you know your ceiling fan blades can rotate in two different directions? It’s true, and it can have a big impact on your comfort and even your energy usage. In the winter, flip the switch on the fan so that the blades rotate clockwise. It’ll help push warm air, which naturally rises, back down to you. In the summer, flip the switch so the blades spin counterclockwise for the opposite effect.

Upgrade to a Wi-Fi Thermostat

Believe it or not, the thermostat you use can actually affect your ability to save energy. With a smart or Wi-Fi thermostat, you can schedule temperature changes on a day-to-day basis depending on whether you’re at home or away. This can cut down on unnecessary fluctuations and streamline energy use. Plus, you can control it all from your smartphone, so you don’t even have to leave the couch to adjust your comfort.

Schedule Routine Maintenance

In spring, you never know how long you’ll need heat or how early you’ll need cool air. So make sure both your furnace and air conditioner run as efficiently as possible with an annual tune-up. Our techs clean all working parts, fix small issues before they worsen, and keep the system running smoothly. It’s a simple and effective energy-saving tip.

4 Incredible Benefits of a Humidifier That Will Make You Want One



Categories—Indoor Air Quality
Female homeowner relaxes on couch and enjoys benefits of a humidifier

We all know what we’re going to get out of winter: cold and dry air. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution to making winter more tolerable—installing a whole-home humidification system from S&R Heating & Cooling. Our experts are sharing the top benefits of a humidifier in your home. Discover more below, and when you’re ready for installation, call us at 651-429-0001.

What Does a Humidifier Do?

In short, it adds moisture to your home. Winter’s cold naturally zaps humidity from the air. This can cause several health problems, including:

  • Dry and itchy skin
  • Irritated eyes
  • Problems with asthma and allergies
  • Bloody noses
  • Common colds and flus

A humidifier’s job is to eliminate all these health concerns by adding moisture back into your air when it gets too low. This indoor air quality product can help keep your home warm and comfortable by balancing moisture levels between the ideal range of 35 to 50 percent.

What Are the Benefits of a Humidifier?

Fewer Health Problems

Air that has the right humidity levels can work wonders for your health. Proper moisture can help soothe dry and cracking skin. And the more humid your air is, the harder it is for airborne contaminants to circulate and make you sick. That means a lower chance of you catching colds and other illnesses.

Feel Warmer

The moisture that a humidifier releases adds natural warmth to the environment. So the higher your home humidity, the warmer you’ll feel. That’s especially helpful in winter, when freezing temps set in. With a humidifier, you can actually turn down your furnace without sacrificing any comfort. This can also help you cut down your energy use—and help save on your utility bills.

Prevents Damage to Your Home

Just like it does with your skin, low humidity can suck the moisture out of your wooden floors, doors, and furniture. That can cause cracking and shrinking, and other cosmetic issues to your woodwork and furniture. By protecting and releasing moisture in your air, a humidifier can help preserve these favorite features in your home.

Trust the Award-Winning Pros at S&R Heating for Ultimate Home Comfort

Can a New Furnace Actually Save You Money?



Family decorates cookies in kitchen under comfort of a new furnace.

Having to buy a new furnace is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make as a homeowner. And usually, you only do so because you’re having problems with your current system. It has a big price tag, yes, but can it actually save you money in the long run? S&R Heating & Cooling is here to break down the answer.

How Exactly Can a Furnace Upgrade Save You Money?

Better Energy Efficiency

Today’s furnaces are built to be more energy-efficient than ever. From variable-speed models that help relieve stress on the system to higher AFUE standards (which refers to the amount of fuel used by your furnace), newer units are designed with lower utility bills in mind. And those lower energy bills can even help pay for the system over time.

Plus, older systems tend to lose efficiency as they age. So by simply swapping your old unit for a new one, you’re automatically upgrading its efficiency, even before you factor in AFUE ratings.

Fewer Repair Bills

Chances are, you’re buying a new furnace because a repair to your old one is either too expensive or too unsafe to make. With a brand-new system, you don’t have to worry about it breaking down on you. Once it’s installed, you can kick back and relax knowing it will work exactly how it’s supposed to. And, when you schedule routine maintenance, you can ensure that replacement will provide worry-free heating for years—and even decades—to come.

Having the Right-Size System

When you think about a furnace, you don’t always think about how big they are. Or, you might think that the bigger the system, the warmer your house will be.

Having the right-size furnace is actually invaluable to both your comfort and your wallet. A unit that’s too small will run constantly trying to keep up with your needs, which in turn will waste a lot of energy. And a system that’s too big will cycle improperly because it’s made for bigger homes. That can put unnecessary stress on your new furnace, causing more problems and breakdowns.

That’s where S&R Heating comes in—more on that below.

A Professional Installation

Having a nice, new, energy-efficient furnace replacement can make a huge difference. But that’s only half the equation—the other half is the installation. And when you choose the team that has as much experience and expertise as S&R Heating does, you’re making the best possible decision. From measuring your home to finding the right unit to installing it perfectly, there’s a reason our team is a two-time member of Bryant®’s prestigious circle of champions.

So when you need a new furnace, don’t hesitate to call: 651-429-0001.

Your furnace works 24/7 in the winter to keep your family warm and cozy. But what happens if it stops working? The first step is to call S&R Heating & Cooling for a professional furnace repair651-429-0001. The second step? Use our tips below on what to do when heat goes out while you wait for one of our experts to arrive.

What to Do When Your Furnace Goes Out in Winter

Turn Off the Gas

If you have a gas furnace, this is the first thing you should do. Without knowing exactly what caused the outage, you don’t want gas to continue funneling into the system and potentially leaking into your home. Shut it off first thing and wait for S&R Heating’s experts to arrive.

Use a Space Heater

These systems are perfect for providing temporary heat for your house. Simply plug them in and turn them on, making sure to keep them on a level floor and away from furniture or plants.

Stick to One Room

Along the same lines, try to keep your family together in the same area. This will make it easier for your space heater to keep you warm. Try closing doors to other rooms to help seal the heat in with you.

Utilize Your Fireplace

Not every home has one, but if you do, light your fireplace. It’s a perfect way to stay warm and can even help you save some energy on heating costs. Plus, there’s nothing as soothing as a fire on a cold winter night.

Bundle Up

Sometimes the old-fashioned ways are the most effective. Throw on an extra sweatshirt, blanket, hat, or pair of gloves while you wait for our pros to provide emergency service.

Helpful Heating Tips for Winter

Replace Your Furnace Filter

It’s a simple but powerful tip. Your filter helps catch airborne contaminants and even certain viruses as they flow through your house. But over time, those pollutants can clog the filter, making it hard for your furnace to circulate warm air. Changing the filter every one to three months can help improve your heating system’s efficiency.

Open Your Curtains During the Day

Even in the winter, the sun can help keep you warm. Keep all drapes, curtains, and blinds open during the day to let that free heat into your home. You won’t have to touch your thermostat, but you can stay just as comfortable as if you had.

Upgrade to a Wi-Fi Thermostat

Speaking of thermostats, installing a smart or Wi-Fi thermostat is an easy and convenient way to take control of your energy usage. These devices allow you to schedule temperature changes based on whether you’re home or away. You can set it lower while you’re at work or on vacation, then have it automatically adjust when you’re on your way home. That simple schedule can save you a ton on energy, as you’re not wasting it heating an empty house.

Reverse the Direction of Your Ceiling Fan Blades

Did you know your ceiling fan can rotate in two different directions? It’s true—and it’s a simple way to increase your comfort. In the winter, switch them to spin clockwise. This will help push warm air, which naturally rises, back down to you while pulling cool air up. You can keep air moving and improve your home’s efficiency all at once.

Utilize Fireplaces and Space Heaters

Not every home has a fireplace, but if you’re lucky enough to have one, it’s a great way to cut down on the amount of energy your furnace uses. The same goes for space heaters. You won’t waste energy on heating an entire house when you’re only using one room.

Schedule Routine Maintenance

Furnace maintenance can help you save on winter heating costs in a few different ways. During the service, we clean and tune your entire system, which helps improve its energy efficiency. Plus, we catch and fix potential problems before they break down your system, saving you on costly repairs in the future.

Whether you need more ways to save on heating costs or are ready to schedule your annual furnace tune-up, count on S&R Heating to help.

Do You Need a Furnace Replacement This Winter?



Tech in red shirt explains furnace replacement basics to young couple homeowners.

Sometimes it can be hard to tell if it’s furnace replacement time in your house—especially if your current system is still working. But at S&R Heating & Cooling, we know that it’s better to be proactive with your heating and cooling than to leave it to chance. Below, we’ll help you decide whether you should think about replacing your furnace.

Signs That You Need a Furnace Replacement

Your System Is Nearly 20 Years Old

If your furnace is getting up there in age, it’s time to be thinking about an upgrade. Systems naturally lose efficiency and effectiveness over time, so even if yours is still getting the job done, it may be costing you in terms of energy. Newer furnaces can help you save on utility costs and stay comfortable—all without worrying about whether it will break down.

Your Current Furnace Needs Constant Repairs

Unit breakdowns are a frustrating part of owning a home. However, if the furnace is constantly breaking down or not circulating enough heat, it may be more trouble than it’s worth. A new system will do more than provide reliable heat—it’ll give you peace of mind for years to come.

Your Monthly Energy Bills Are Skyrocketing

As a homeowner, you know that utility costs are a part of life. But if your monthly bills seem a little too high—and they only get more expensive despite the same usage—it’s a sign that something is wrong with your furnace. While preventive maintenance and even repair can help improve your system’s efficiency, it’s also possible you have the wrong size unit. Considering a new system could also mean having significantly lower energy bills.

Your Home Isn’t as Warm as You Need It to Be

There isn’t much worse than a heating system that won’t heat. So whether your home suffers from uneven temperatures or the furnace won’t reach your thermostat’s setting despite running constantly, call S&R Heating to help you investigate. We can help you determine the perfect system for your home—and one that will get the job done thoroughly and efficiently.

Have Furnace Replacement Questions? Contact S&R Heating

As a Bryant® Factory Authorized Dealer—and Circle of Champions award-winners—S&R Heating has the experience and know-how to keep you comfortable no matter what. So if you’re not sure whether you need a new system, you can depend on us.

What Is Indoor Air Quality, and Why Is It So Important?



Categories—Indoor Air Quality
What is indoor air quality, and why is it so important?

At S&R Heating & Cooling, we talk a lot about the importance of home air quality. That’s because it affects more than just your comfort—it can also impact your health. But what is indoor air quality, and what can make it troublesome? Our experts share some basics below.

Indoor Air Quality 101

The term refers to how polluted the air inside your home is. Though you won’t see them, contaminants like dirt, dust, and even certain viruses float through your house every day. These pollutants stem from many household items and activities, such as cooking, cleaning, carpets, and even your pets.

Without systems like purifiers or dehumidifiers, those contaminants can cause poor indoor air quality and make you sick.

How You Can Improve Your Indoor Air Quality Standards

Install Air-Cleaning Systems

Fortunately, most air quality problems have specific systems designed to solve them. For example, an air purifier can capture and kill up to 99 percent of the pollutants mentioned above. Dehumidifiers help remove moisture in your home (which can cause other issues with mold and mildew), while UV lights zap bacteria that grow inside your heating and cooling systems.

Replace Your Air Filter

Your air filter is a small but essential part of your HVAC setup. It works like an air purifier but on a smaller scale. When air flows through it, airborne pollutants get caught in the filter’s fibers, preventing them from circulating. However, this can clog the filter over time, blocking airflow altogether and putting unnecessary stress on your furnace and AC.

By replacing your filter every one to three months, you can help ensure good indoor air quality in your home.

Prevent Indoor Pollutants in the First Place

It sounds simple, but prevention is always the best policy. Here are a few tips to help stop pollution before it starts:

  • Turn on exhaust fans when cooking or taking a shower
  • Vacuum the house once a week (or more often if you have pets)
  • Dust everything, from blinds to ceiling fans
  • Groom your pets
  • Open windows when using chemical cleaners

5 Easy Ways to Lower Humidity in Your Home



Categories—Indoor Air Quality
humidity and condensation on window

We’ve all heard that old weather adage: “It wouldn’t be so bad without the humidity.” At S&R Heating & Cooling, we agree—so we’re sharing ways that you can lower humidity in your home and fully enjoy the warmer weather. Find the answers you need below, and give us a call at 651-429-0001 with questions and concerns.

How to Reduce Humidity in Your House

Install a Dehumidifier

These systems are designed specifically to lower humidity in your indoor air. Whether single-room units or whole-home systems, they suck excess moisture out of the air, helping balance humidity levels in the recommended 35 to 50 percent range. They’re an easy-to-use, hands-off solution to making a room less humid.

Run Your Air Conditioner

Believe it or not, your AC can also go a long way toward lowering humidity. The cool air it blows through your home can help counterbalance warmer, more humid conditions. It may not target moisture in your air, but your AC can help you feel more comfortable quickly.

Make Use of Your Fans

Especially when taking a shower or cooking, it’s easy for steam to rise into your air and make it more humid. For those reasons, run any ventilation or exhaust fans you have to send that moisture outside. Not only will it help keep your air clean—it’ll help you avoid moisture problems such as mold and mildew.

Shorten Your Showers (and Use Colder Water)

Taking shorter showers—and using colder water during them—can help reduce the amount of moisture released into the air. Even with an exhaust fan running, this step can help cut down on humidity before it even starts.

Crack Open a Window

Sometimes the easiest solution is also the best one. If the day outside isn’t warm and muggy, try opening your windows to alleviate some of the humidity indoors.

Everything You Should Know About Air Exchanger Systems



Categories—Indoor Air Quality
Happy young woman relaxes on grey couch and enjoys the benefits of an air exchanger

Opening your windows for a blast of fresh air is one of the best feelings. But in the summer, outdoor heat, humidity, and allergens can make it hard to enjoy it. An easy solution? Call S&R Heating & Cooling to install an air exchanger in your home. Below, our experts share everything you need to know about these amazing systems—including how they can benefit you.

What Does an Air Exchanger Do?

These systems start by removing stale air from inside your house and sending it outside. Then, they take fresh outdoor air, filter and condition it, and bring it inside for you to enjoy. It’s like having an open window without having to deal with problems like humidity, poor temperatures, or allergens (more on those below).

The Benefits of a Home Air Exchanger

Fresh Air

We’ll start with the obvious—no more stale air. Whether it’s the dog days of summer or the dead of winter, your home can always be as fresh as the great outdoors.

Clean Air

Warmer temps in spring and summer are great, but the allergens and asthma triggers that come with them are not. An air-to-air exchanger eliminates that problem by filtering out those pollutants and contaminants as it brings outdoor air inside.

Conditioned Air

Let’s say it’s the middle of winter, and your home is stale and stuffy. You can’t open a window because it’s too cold, but you can turn on your exchanger. It will bring outdoor air in, push it through its heat recovery unit, and blow fresh, warm air inside.

Humidity Control

Too humid inside your house? Residential air exchangers can send that outside, too. It can help you feel more comfortable and hinder mold and mildew growth.

Energy Efficiency

By helping distribute air, exchangers help take the pressure off your heating and cooling systems. And the less stress on those, the less energy they’re likely to use—which can result in lower utility bills for you.

Is an Air Exchanger Necessary?

Let the experts at S&R Heating help you decide. As a Bryant® Factory Authorized Dealer, we know what it takes to keep you comfortable—and we’ve been doing it for more than 35 years. So give us a call today: 651-429-0001 (or contact us online).

Here’s Why You Should Schedule Annual AC Maintenance Today

Crossing annual AC maintenance off a to-do list in red marker.

Just like you take your car in for a routine check-up, annual AC maintenance is crucial to keeping your system running. But what exactly goes into this service? How does it benefit you? The experts at S&R Heating & Cooling are breaking down everything you need to know about air conditioner maintenance. Find more below and call us to set up an appointment today.

What Happens During Annual AC Maintenance Service?

Simply put, we make sure everything works like it’s supposed to. Our experts look over your entire cooling system, measuring performance and tuning up all working parts. We’ll even look for potential issues and fix them on the spot. After that, we clean everything from top to bottom. By the time we’re done, your air conditioner should work almost as if it’s brand new.

What Does Annual HVAC Maintenance Do for You?

Improves Energy Efficiency

Air conditioners naturally lose efficiency over time. But by cleaning and tuning yours every year, you can ensure it works as smoothly as possible. Everything works like it’s supposed to, resulting in efficiency you’ll see in your monthly energy bills.

Prevents Future Breakdowns

Air conditioning problems can often build up over time rather than happen all at once. During air conditioner maintenance, we specifically look for those problems to stop them right away. This helps you avoid major breakdowns—and the price tag that can come with them.

Boost Your System’s Lifespan

Any home comfort system works best when it doesn’t run into problems. By keeping up with regular maintenance, you can make life easy for your AC. And the longer it goes without issues, the longer it’s likely to last you.

Keeps Your Warranty Valid

While your AC certainly came with a warranty in case something happens, many of them require you to keep up with regular service to maintain validity. Maintenance helps cut down on major issues—and our repair service is second to none should your system break down—but keeping your warranty valid is a nice safety blanket to have.

Schedule Your Annual AC Maintenance With S&R, a Bryant® Factory Authorized Dealer

We take great pride in our experience and expertise, and it shows in the work we do. So when you’re ready to schedule service, make S&R your first stop. Call or contact us today to get started.

6 Dehumidifier Benefits That Will Make You Want One Today



Categories—Indoor Air Quality
Woman and husband enjoy dehumidifier benefits as they lounge in their homey living room.

It’s almost air conditioner time, which means warmer temps and, unfortunately, higher humidity. Thankfully, a whole-home dehumidifier can help lower moisture and keep you comfortable. And the best part: It does it all while helping you stay healthy. How? The experts at S&R Heating & Cooling are sharing the best dehumidifier benefits below. Fall in love with this system, then call us at 651-429-0001 for installation.

What Are the Benefits of a Dehumidifier?

Better Comfort

There’s almost nothing worse than that damp, sticky feeling you get when it’s too humid. The good news is that a dehumidifier can help get rid of it. This system’s job is to remove excess moisture in the air—so when it’s done, you’ll feel nice and cool.

Cleaner Home

Microorganisms such as mold, mildew, and even certain bacteria thrive in damp environments. So the more moisture that’s in your home, the more contaminants there are likely to be. However, an air dehumidifier removes that humidity, helping get rid of those microorganisms and creating cleaner indoor air.

Cooler Environment

Your AC does a great job cooling off your home. Installing a whole-house dehumidifier can help take that one step further—after all, drier air simply feels cooler. In fact, depending on the temperature outside, you might be able to run your dehumidifier instead of your AC and stay just as comfortable.

Added Energy Efficiency

When the dehumidifier runs, your AC has an easier time pushing air through your home, as it doesn’t have to fight through humidity to reach your desired temperature. And when your cooling system isn’t working as hard, it won’t use as much energy. You’ll see that efficiency in your monthly energy bills—and in your bank account.

No More Musty Smells or Bad Odors

Too much humidity—as well as the mold and mildew that come with it—simply smells bad. By running a dehumidifier, you can help get rid of those microorganisms and, in turn, those bad smells.

Are Dehumidifiers Worth It?

Absolutely—especially when installed by the indoor air quality pros at S&R Heating. We’ll help you find the best system for your home so you can reap all these dehumidifier benefits and more. As Bryant® Factory Authorized Dealers, we’ll do whatever it takes to keep you comfortable. Call us now at 651-429-0001 or contact us online.

3 Awesome Benefits of a Water Softener



Categories—Home Comfort
Young boy and girl enjoy benefits of a water softener in laundry room, including soft clothes.

Could your Woodbury home use a water softener? If you have itchy skin, dull-colored clothing, or hard water stains, the easy answer is “yes.” The pros at S&R Heating & Cooling are sharing the top benefits of a water softener below—read them over, then call us at 651-429-0001.

What Is Soft Water?

On the surface, it seems like all water is the same. However, it’s what you don’t see in it that makes all the difference. Hard water has lots of calcium, magnesium, and other naturally occurring minerals. The more there are, the “harder” the water is—and the more detrimental it can be to your health and home. A water softener removes those minerals, a feature that offers many health and comfort benefits (which we’re breaking down below).

Why Use a Water Softener?

Healthier Skin

Though you may not feel it, the minerals found in hard water actually decrease the effectiveness of soap and shampoo. Because soft water eliminates those minerals, it’s much more gentle on skin. This can help you feel and look healthier. The same goes for your hair—it will feel softer and stronger every time you wash it.

Better-Looking Clothes

Soft water has the same effect on your clothes as it does on your skin. When you do laundry using hard water, those minerals build up in the fabric of your shirts and pants—this can make them appear duller and feel stiffer against your body. A water softener makes your clothes pop, feel more comfortable, and helps you get the most out of your clothing.

Easier on Plumbing

All those calcium and magnesium deposits can build up in your pipes as easily as on your clothing. Over time those deposits can cause clogs and drainage problems—and even damage your pipes. A water softener keeps your plumbing in good shape and can help cut down on necessary repairs.

Count on S&R for all Your Water Softener Needs

It’s our job to keep you as comfortable as possible at home and protecting your water supply is a big part of that. Call us today at 651-429-0001 or contact us online.

5 Ways Zoning Systems Benefit Your Home Comfort



Young couple relax on couch under the comfort of zoning systems.

No matter what season it is, you want your home to stay as comfortable as possible. But the fact is, you use certain rooms more often than others. So wouldn’t it be great if you could customize home temperatures on an area-to-area basis? That’s where zoning systems come in. S&R Heating & Cooling’s expert zoning team is here to explain how they work—and how they can upgrade your comfort overnight.

How Do HVAC Zone Control Systems Work?

Zoned heating and cooling systems divide your home into several different sections, each controlled by its own thermostat. With a damper system installed in your ductwork, you can set how warm or cold these different zones get.

For example, say your home is divided into three zones—your basement, first floor, and second floor. If your family tends to hang out on the first floor, you can turn up the heat in that area without wasting energy heating up the other unused sections.

Advantages of Zoning Systems

Energy Efficiency

Saving energy by heating individual zones rather than the whole house leads to lower overall energy bills—and helps take some pressure off your wallet.

Customized Comfort

Zoned HVAC can help settle family arguments over the thermostat, too. If you and your spouse like the temperature on the cooler side but the kids want it warmer, you can set your zoning system accordingly. Everybody wins, no matter where they are in the house.

Convenient to Use

Because every zone has its own thermostat, you never have to walk far to turn up the heat. And if you upgrade to a smart or Wi-Fi thermostat, you don’t even have to get up—you can control your comfort straight from your smartphone.

Extends the Life of Your HVAC Systems

In the winter, your furnace works around the clock to maintain your home comfort. That constant use puts a lot of stress on the system, leading to more frequent breakdowns. By not heating unused zones, you reduce the wear and tear on your furnace, helping it last longer.

Personalized Zones

You can choose the number of zones that best suits your house—most use two to six. Divide your home by floor, by side, by the area that gets the most sun, you name it.

For the Best HVAC Zoning System, Call S&R Heating

S&R Heating is a Bryant® Factory Authorized Dealer, which means we do whatever it takes to support your comfort. Not only will we help you set up the perfect zoning system, but we won’t leave until all your questions are answered.

4 Common Furnace Problems (and How to Fix Them)



Couple looking up home furnace troubleshooting tips

With winter upon us, your heating system will get a good workout in the months ahead. To help you avoid running into any furnace problems, the pros at S&R Heating & Cooling are here with four common heating issues you might face—and how to solve them. Follow our furnace troubleshooting guide below and call 651-429-0001 for emergency service.

#1 – The Furnace Will Not Turn On With the Thermostat

A furnace that won’t turn on is frustrating, but the good news is that there may be a few simple ways to fix it:

  • Change the batteries in your thermostat
  • Make sure the thermostat is set to “heat” and not “cool”
  • Turn up the temperature a few degrees to check if your furnace responds
  • Check your circuit breaker to see if the furnace switch is tripped—if so, turn it back on

#2 – Your Furnace Will Not Produce Heat

If your heating system will turn on but won’t send warm air, a dirty air filter could be to blame. As air flows through your filter, it catches small airborne particles and contaminants that pollute your home. These contaminants build up on the filter over time, blocking air flow and preventing precious heat from reaching you. Swap out your filter every one to three months to ensure clean and warm air all winter long.

#3 – The System Makes Strange Noises When It Operates

Does your furnace go bump in the night? It’s normal for it to make certain sounds when it boots up. In fact, it should—if it’s completely silent, it may not even be on at all. But if it’s making rattling, scraping, or grinding noises, something more serious could be wrong with your unit, like a slipped belt or a clogged burner. If you hear any of those scary sounds, give our team a call for a quick, safe, and efficient furnace repair.

#4 – The Unit Cycles On and Off

A furnace that constantly turns on and off could stem from a couple of the issues mentioned above—namely a dirty air filter or a bad thermostat setting. Unfortunately, it could also be due to faulty or broken furnace parts. If your system is still cycling too much after you’ve swapped out your filter and adjusted your thermostat settings, call one of our experts to take a deeper look at the issue.

Trust S&R Heating to Help You Battle Common Furnace Problems

When it comes to electric or gas furnace troubleshooting, there’s no team better than ours. As a Bryant® Factory Authorized Dealer, we’ll help you do whatever it takes to keep the heat on all season long. From our maintenance service that helps prevent these furnace problems to expert repair that fixes them, we’ve got your back. Call us today at 651-429-0001 or contact us online.

3 Simple Reasons to Add an Indoor Air Purifier



Categories—Indoor Air Quality

With cooler weather upon us, you won’t be able to open your windows for fresh air. An indoor air purifier is the perfect answer for your home—not only for this winter, but all year round. The experts at S&R Heating & Cooling are breaking down just how these air quality systems can benefit you (and how they can actually help improve your health) below.

What Does an Air Purifier Do?

In short, it helps get rid of indoor air pollution. Every time you cook or clean, you release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air. If left unchecked, these VOCs—which include dust, debris, pollen, mold, and dander—circulate through your house and, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, make your home two to five times more polluted than the air outside.

This is where a home air purifier comes in. These systems capture and kill up to 99 percent of airborne contaminants, literally purifying your air. They create a safer environment for you and your family.

How an Air Purifier Benefits You

Cleaner Air

By removing these contaminants, purifiers can reduce the likelihood of you getting sick, whether by airborne illness or allergies. An air purification system also removes pollutants like smoke and mold, which can freshen your air and eliminate stinky odors.

Improved Heating and Cooling

Your furnace and air conditioner use an indoor air filter to capture as many airborne pollutants as possible when they circulate through your house. However, that filter can only catch so much before it gets dirty. This makes it easier for VOCs to go uncaught and can also block airflow from your heating and cooling systems. Air purifiers take the stress off your filters, doubling your contaminant-catching ability while letting air flow like it’s supposed to.

Better Comfort

When you know that your home comfort systems are working correctly and you’re breathing fresh and healthy air, you can relax in your home no matter the season.

For the Best Air Purifier, Rely on S&R Heating

Whether you’re looking for an indoor air purifier for allergies or to help freshen up stale winter air, S&R Heating has your back. We can help you find the Bryant® purification system that best fits your home—just call us at 651-429-0001 or contact us online.

3 Garage Heater Benefits You’ll Absolutely Flip For



garage heater benefits

You may think of your garage as just a place to park your car, but it can also be a great space to work and hang out—all you have to do is know how to heat it. That’s where garage heaters come into play, and S&R Heating & Cooling can help you find the best system for your home. Discover three amazing garage heater benefits below, then call us at 651-429-0001 for help transforming your space today.

Adds Space to Your Home

By installing an electric garage heater, you’re essentially adding a whole extra room to your house. Your garage doesn’t have to be just where you park and store boxes and tools. It can become a family or party go-to space, a convenient workshop, or even a rec room.

Keeps Your Family and Vehicles Safer

A heated garage does away with hustling to and from the car to avoid Minnesota’s cold weather. This is especially helpful for those with infants and small children. Rather than hustling to buckle them in or out, you can take your time in the nice, comfortable garage.

The warmth is also good for cars. Not only will your vehicle warm up faster, but you won’t have to worry about your car not starting or scraping any ice off before you go to work. Garage heaters even help protect against engine wear and oil problems, saving you on potential repair costs down the road.

Helps Heat Your Home

Rooms and areas built over garages are notorious for being much colder in winter than other parts of the house. High-efficiency garage heaters fix this problem. As they heat up your garage, that warm air rises, helping balance out temperatures in the rooms above them. It’s much easier and more efficient than dialing up your home thermostat in an attempt to even out conditions across the house.

Our Experts Can Help You Find the Best Garage Heater for Your Needs

S&R Heating’s line of Reznor heaters are the best way to heat a garage efficiently, safely, and cost-effectively. From compact design to quiet operation, you can rest easy knowing that when you choose our experts, you’ll get the exact energy-efficient unit your space needs.
