February 18th, 2019

ductless-heat-pumpHm? What’s that? It’s been a bit colder here in the Midwest, lately? Sorry, but I hardly noticed! I guess now that you mention it, it does feel a bit more like home …

All About Radiant Heating Systems

February 4th, 2019

radiatorComfort Bear, back again this week to tell you about boilers. Why boilers?

Well, to be honest, they make me a bit nostalgic for the Arctic. That’s because some of the heating principles used in boilers are also used in igloos! The iconic snow houses were used to keep the Inuit people warm with a combination of three kinds of heating: conduction, convection, and radiation.

Likewise, depending on the kind of boiler, it may use variations of those heating methods. But we’ve found that the most comfortable and efficient boilers are the ones that use radiant heating. Today, we’ll talk all about them.

How Low Humidity Affects Indoor Air Quality

January 21st, 2019

dry-airComfort Bear here, checking in for the week. Lately, I’ve begun my posts by talking about how I really have no need for furnaces or heaters thanks to my fur. Sorry, but I just can’t sympathize with you humans on that front!

But there’s one thing I can totally relate with you guys on: dry air.

The air in the Arctic was always dry (especially in winter, but it was pretty bad all year-round). I don’t miss the feeling of dry air, so today, I’m going to talk about one of my favorite human inventions: the humidifier.

5 Common Gas Furnace Safety Issues

January 7th, 2019

technician-inspects-furnace-safelyThis is Comfort Bear, here to tell you more about furnaces. Lucky for me I don’t really need a furnace. To be honest, I’m already looking forward to the feeling of cool air from an AC unit blowing through my fur…

Sorry, spaced out there for a second. As I was saying: furnaces. Gas furnaces are incredible devices, and they’re crazy popular across the whole nation. Even so, you want to make sure it runs safely all year long. Gas appliances are safe when installed by a pro, but even then, they can fall into disrepair and invite some trouble.

Here are some of the common safety issues you can look out for with your own furnace:

How to Sniff Out a Bad HVAC Contractor

December 24th, 2018

contractor

Comfort Bear here. Let me tell you something about my cousins from the Arctic:

When they’re looking for a tasty meal, they rely on a sharp sense of smell. It’s so strong that they can even smell prey from under the ice.

If you humans had a sense of smell that good, you might be able to sniff out a fishy HVAC contractor. A bad HVAC contractor is a huge loss of both time and money, but it can be difficult to spot them.

Of course, humans do have something like this sense of smell, but they call it their intuition and experience. I’ll share some of that experience with you so you can sniff out a bad contractor.

Why It Pays to Get Furnace Maintenance

December 10th, 2018

furnace-technicianHere’s the grisly truth about furnace maintenance:

Avoiding it is going to cost you some serious money through the life of your furnace.

The benefits of maintenance aren’t always apparent in the short-term, which is why many homeowners don’t take it seriously. However, after looking at the numbers and doing the math, it will become apparent that maintenance is actually what keeps costs down.

I’ll explain further down below:

Heating Options to Consider This Season

November 12th, 2018

Comfort Bear, here. As much as I love talking about heating systems, I really can’t enjoy them. My fur keeps me way too warm, and I’m not about to have it trimmed any time soon (but ask me again in the summer). For you hairless bears, however, heating systems might be the perfect thing to keep you warm through the fall and winter.

Today, I can tell you all about the clever ways that humans have learned to heat up their homes.
