Help for Flooding Victims in the Kansas City Area

Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

Climate Control Heating & Cooling wants to help our neighbors in the KC area

Flooding and water damage can come unexpectedly.

If you are in the St Joseph area and you experienced recent flooding, you probably want to just get back to normal life as soon as possible. A lot of things are probably running through your mind like how you are going to clean up and how to repair water damage to your home. You may not realize this, but if your HVAC unit was submerged during the flood, you may have a whole list of other issues.

Sure, the outside of your air conditioner or furnace may look just the same as it did before the flood! It is highly likely that water-damaged HVAC equipment may not work or may not work for long after being flooded. Furnaces, heaters and boilers have gas valves and controls that are especially vulnerable to water damage. Even electric furnaces have coils that are susceptible to corrosion if flooded.

What should you do?

We Offer Daikin Ductless Systems

Monday, March 18th, 2019

If you’re a homeowner in Kansas City, chances are that you’ve been using a ducted system.

These systems use ducts and vents to send cool and warm air through your home. They’re effective systems that have been used for decades.

However, there’s another option that just might change everything:

Ductless mini-split systems.

We’ve partnered up with Daikin, a company that offers some of the industry’s best warranties on ductless mini-split systems. If your new system doesn’t meet your expectations within one year after installation, they’ll be happy to resolve the issue at no cost (and that’s on top of a 12-year warranty).

That all being said, there’s plenty of reasons why you might want to switch from a ducted system to a ductless one:

All About Radiant Heating Systems

Monday, 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

Monday, 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.

Monday, 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:
