What are hybrid systems?

Also known as “dual-fuel systems,” a hybrid system is a special type of combined cooling and heating system that can switch between three modes of operation:

  • Cooling generated by pulling heat energy out of your home and putting it outside, like an air conditioner.
  • Heating generated by combustion of gas, like a traditional furnace.
  • Heating generated by pulling heat energy from outdoor air into the home, like a heat pump.

These systems toggle between using electricity (for cooling and heat pump heating) and gas (for furnace heating) depending on which is the most efficient option at that time.

How are hybrid systems more efficient than a normal furnace?

In many cases, moving heat energy from one place to another requires less energy than the gas combustion process used by a furnace. Using the heat pump mode of operation during the fall, winter, and early spring lowers the cost of heating your home.

However, there’s a catch: heat pumps generally get less efficient as temperatures drop and it becomes more difficult to pull heat energy from outdoor air and bring it inside. Here in Buffalo and Western New York, we’re known for our below-freezing nights in the winter. The advantage of a hybrid system is that it knows that threshold and automatically switches to the more efficient furnace operation when it needs to.

When it comes to a hybrid system, think of the heat pump mode like a lower gear in a truck, with the furnace mode as a higher gear. Both have their uses depending on the context.

How much can this system save homeowners?

With this dual mode of operation, hybrid systems can reduce heating costs by up to 33% in the winter and cooling costs by up to 46% in the summer. If you think about the money you spend each and every year on cooling and heating, that could add up to thousands of dollars in savings over the lifetime of the system. But, you don’t have to wait to start saving. A new hybrid system professionally installed by the team at Reimer can help you start saving money right away this winter.

It should also be noted that this “two gears” approach can reduce the wear-and-tear the system would have otherwise experienced if it only had a single mode of operation. A gas furnace, for instance, can only run at one speed, whether it’s 50 out or -15.

Here’s why upgrading to a smart thermostat is a great investment

With technology changing every day and becoming more and more advanced, automation has become one of the most important aspects of daily modern life. It has changed the way we all work, play, and communicate. It has even quickly become an important part of keeping us comfortable in our homes, and the smart thermostat is to thank for this convenience.

First-generation and mercury-based thermostats are becoming wildly outdated compared to new smart models available on the market. If you are looking to bring your home into the modern age with the best-possible comfort and convenience for your home, here are just a few reasons to consider upgrading your thermostat.

Call Reimer for thermostat installation, repair, and other services here in Buffalo and Western New York.

We can install a programmable, smart thermostat in your home. Call Reimer today!

A smart thermostat allows you to program your indoor temperature for when you’re away, saving you money on your monthly energy bills.

Why upgrade to a smart thermostat?

1. They’re SMART

Before you consider the various perks of installing a new smart thermostat, it’s important to understand what separates them from the other thermostats. The oldest of the bunch—mercury thermostats—use a needle to control temperature. They don’t give the most accurate reading, and they only come with standard heating and cooling settings. About 20 years ago, this was the industry standard for both residential and commercial construction.

The digital thermostat, which is often confused with a smart thermostat because of their similar appearance, allows the user to adjust the temperature depending on a certain time of day. Both of these earlier models are somewhat effective in regulating temperature, but they don’t have the intelligence or flexibility options offered by smart thermostats. Their state-of-the-art features and capabilities are what sets smart thermostats apart. They have the ability to make automatic adjustments based on your home and your cooling and heating needs. The very best models “learn” as they’re used, updating their algorithm to deliver optimal comfort with less energy use..

2. You can remotely change the temperature

If you’ve ever arrived at work and realized you forgot to turn the thermostat to a more energy-efficient setting before you left, you’re not alone. After all, forgetting to do a repetitive task is a very human mistake! And while it’s nice to come home from work to a nice cool and comfortable house, it’s a serious waste of money and energy to run your AC unit at an optimal temperature all day, especially when you’re not there for more than 8 hours.

Smart thermostats solve this issue. Most smart thermostats have Wi-Fi capability, which allows you to set your home’s temperature from anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection. So, the next time you get to work and realize you forgot to set the thermostat before you left, don’t stress. You can change it from your phone app, and know that you won’t have a huge energy bill because of a small mistake.

3. Save money with improved energy efficiency

The top feature of smart thermostats is that they save you money. When you add this to energy-saving HVAC systems, your savings will just continue to grow. Because the smart thermostat can sense when you are not home, or even be set to run at specific times during the day, your AC unit is not working overtime to produce temperatures that you don’t need. Not only will it help you save on your monthly energy bills, but it will also reduce necessary maintenance and repair costs because it is not running as often.

4. Solve outdated thermostat issues

A huge issue with old-school, outdated thermostats is that they can experience a variety of different complications. Things such as poor thermostat placement, dirt and debris buildup, and bad electrical connections are all things that reduce your thermostat’s performance and efficiency. New smart thermostats are more accurate and last longer, which means more consistent temperature in your home and less worry about watching your energy costs.

5. Have greater control over your home

When you pair your smart thermostat with compatible HVAC systems, you will have far greater flexibility. For example, you will have access to zoning, which will allow you to set specific temperatures for certain rooms and parts of your home. For example, if your entire family is in the kitchen cooking and eating dinner, your AC doesn’t need to be cooling your bedroom and living room at the same time. You can program your thermostat to a different setting for each room, saving energy and money.

6. Improve your indoor air quality

A smart thermostat can help improve the air quality in your home by letting you know when your filters need to be changed or even when you need to schedule your next maintenance call. Some smart thermostats also include a humidity sensor feature, which helps keep your home at a comfortable, healthy level. You can even sync your smart thermostat with a smart speaker device so it can automatically do things like order your filters for you when it’s time.

What are ductless split systems, and is one right for your home?

You’ve no doubt heard about “ductless” systems, or seen one in action at a friend’s home. These increasingly popular systems can both cool and heat your home, and they’re an energy-efficient and versatile alternative to standard, duct-based HVAC setups. Plus, they have a number of other advantages, such as zoned comfort. In this article, we’ll review what ductless split systems are, how they work, and why one of these systems might be a good fit for your home.

For a free in-home estimate on a ductless setup here in Buffalo and Western New York, Reimer is the team to call. One of our techs can meet with you and help you determine if ductless is a good fit for your family’s cooling and heating needs.

Call Reimer to learn more about ductless split systems.

Ductless split systems are typically wall-mounted, meaning they can deliver comfort right to the living spaces of your home.

What are ductless split systems?

It’s right in the name: ductless split systems do not rely on ductwork to transport heated or cooled air, as traditional furnaces and air conditioners do. Instead, these systems have two main components connected by a refrigerant line: an outdoor condenser and an indoor blower. Multiple indoor units can be connected to single outdoor unit: that’s where the “split” part of the name comes from. These units, typically wall-mounted, blow cooled or heated air into the room they’re in, cooling or heating it.

Benefits of upgrading to ductless

Going ductless has several advantages over a standard, duct-dependent HVAC setup. Here are just a few:

Lower Installation Cost

Installing new ducts or repairing old ones can be a significant investment in your home. It’s also a very invasive project, with walls and ceilings literally being torn up to access ductwork. In contrast, ductless installation often costs far less. If you’re weighing getting new ducts installed in your home or home addition, consider the benefits of ductless before you commit to such a long, costly project.

Energy-Efficiency

With a duct-driven cooling and heating setup, a significant amount of energy is lost in transit between the blower and the living spaces of your home. Ductless systems avoid this problem by putting the blower right into the living space. As a result, they can often heat and cool your home for far less energy, reducing your energy bills.

Zoned Comfort

A ductless split system is capable of heating and cooling rooms of your home independently of one another. Have one room that gets too cold in the winter, no matter what you do? You can set the system to heat that room more than the rest of your home. If you and your family are spending the evening in the living room, have the system heat that room without the need to also pay to heat the rest of the home. This can save you money and make your home more comfortable.

Versatility

Ductless systems are wall-mounted, which means they can go in many places that a duct line wouldn’t be able to travel. You can place a ductless system over your kitchen sink, for instance. Or, you can put one right over your bed in the master bedroom. The point is that you have more options than ever.

Indoor Air Quality

Air ducts are not only inefficient at transporting heated or cooled air from one place to another, but they’re also a great place for dust, dirt, grime, pollen, mold particles, and much more to collect. By bypassing the need for ducts entirely, ductless systems avoid this problem, meaning that you can breathe easier.

Is your home right for a ductless system?

Any home—even one with existing ductwork—can have a ductless split system added to it. However, ductless systems are most often installed in these types of situations:

Historic property

If you own a historic home that does not have existing ducts, a ductless split system allows you to add cooling and heating without major renovations that could ruin the historical value of the property.

Home additions

If you’ve added a bedroom to your home or a separate in-law suite on your property, consider having a ductless setup installed. In the case of the latter scenario, this allows you to add cooling and heating to a place where ductwork can’t go.

Other areas

Many homeowners who do regular work in their garage in the winter are opting to have our team install a wall-mounted ductless unit in that space, so that they can work on cars and home projects in comfort.

High-use rooms

As mentioned earlier, many homeowners who have existing ducts choose to have a ductless split installed to supplement their cooling and heating in one or two commonly used rooms.

Here are the 5 signs you need furnace repairs this winter

We all know it: people in Western New York need their furnaces more than ever during the winter. Unfortunately, many older furnaces just aren’t up for the challenge of single digit lows every night. As furnaces break down throughout the Buffalo area and put their homes at risk of frozen pipes, Reimer is ready to help, with our 24/7 heating repair services. In this article, we’ll review the 5 big signs you need furnace repairs this winter, and what you can do to keep your heating system running right.

If you're noticing signs you need furnace repairs, call Reimer for expert techs.

The signs you need furnace repairs could include not enough heat being pushed out through your air ducts to your home.

If you run into any heating problems during these cold months, call the team that Buffalo has trusted for nearly a century: Reimer. Our expert techs are ready to help you get your home comfortable and cozy again.

Signs you need furnace repairs this winter

Here are the five major signs you need furnace repairs from our expert techs:

1. There is no heat

Let’s start with obvious. One of the easiest ways to tell your furnace is broken is that no heat comes out. Many homeowners do not realize this is a problem until the temperature has already dropped substantially. Everyone should test their furnaces well before winter starts to make sure warm air comes out.

2. You hear loud noises when you turn the furnace on

You may hear some low, rumbling noises from the furnace all the time. If you hear anything outside of that, then it is time to get the professionals from Reimer Home Services to take a look. When the blower motors need to be fixed, you will generally hear loud, screeching noises.

3. The furnace never stops running

You should hear your furnace running at various points in the day when your home needs to be heated most. In the event it never shuts down, then it means your house is not warming up to the desired levels. This could also be a sign the system has dirty ducts or air filters.

4. Moisture is present

When you find moisture building up around the base, it means the system has a leak. The lines can clog up over time. Most of the time, you will also smell gas, which means you need to shut off the system immediately.

5. Your electric bills increase

Occasionally, you will not notice any of these signs, but you will see your gas bill increase. When you run the furnace, you should expect your bills to increase a little, but it should not be exorbitant. A substantial increase means your system is using way too much power to heat your home.

Don’t get left out in the cold

You should never be left in the cold this winter thanks to the help of Reimer Home Services. We serve all of western New York, including the Buffalo metro area. Contact us if you even suspect your furnace has an issue.

Here’s a quick homeowner’s guide to how radiant heating works

Used since the time of the Romans, radiant heating has endured the test of time and continues to be one of the most effective ways to heat a home. Built into floors or walls, radiant heating offers homeowners energy-efficient heat without the need for ductwork. In this article, we’ll review how radiant heating works, the different types of radiant systems, and if it’s worth installing in your home.

In this article, we explore how radiant heating works in homes.

Hydronic radiant heating installation in a new home build.

How radiant heating works

A standard furnace combusts fuel—typically, gas—to generate heat energy. This energy is then transferred to air and blown through your home with the use of vents. However, there’s a problem: air is a relatively poor conductor of heat energy, and there’s plenty of chances for that energy to dissipate or be lost before it even reaches the living spaces of your home.

Water and metal are much better carriers of heat energy. When heat is transferred through either, less energy is lost on its way to your living spaces. That forms of the basis of the two main types of radiant systems: electric and hydronic.

Electric versus hydronic systems

Both have their own advantages and disadvantages, but the principle by which they heat your home is similar.

Electric radiant heat, the less common of the two, is a good retrofit option in existing homes. It uses resistance wire. The conductive wiring is razor-thin and sits just under the finish floor. The system is connected to a thermostat and uses electricity to heat up the wires. There’s no boiler or pipes required.

Hydronic systems, on the other hand, use water to radiate heat throughout the home. In the past, copper pipes were used for their conductivity. However, copper corrodes; today we use resilient plastic PEX tubing, which is cheaper to produce and lasts for decades.

What are the advantages of radiant heating?

As mentioned previously, forced-air systems lose a lot of energy while pushing heated air to the living spaces of your home. Then, in many cases, the air is sent out of air vents near the ceiling. Since hot air rises above cold air, this leaves your living room cold. You turn up the thermostat more and the vicious cycle continues.

How radiant heating works is by dissipating that heat energy in the living space. Since the heat energy was carried by water or wire, less of it was lost in transport. Plus, since radiant heating is most often located underneath floors or at the bottom of walls, that heat arrives where it’s needed.

Plus, a radiant heating system can hold heat for longer. Water in the boiler and pipes remains hot long after the system turns off. The net result is a consistent temperature throughout the home and much lower energy bills throughout the winter.

A final advantage is simply comfort. By heating your floorboards, radiant heating can reduce that horrible feeling of walking on cold tile or wood floors during the winter.

What does this cost?

Due to some of the costs associated with tearing up floors, hydronic radiant heating is typically installed at the time the house is constructed or being remodeled. Many older homes here in Buffalo have radiant heating systems that utilized copper pipes, but some newer ones are getting retrofitted with radiant heating.

Once operating, hydronic heating holds its temperature better, requiring less energy from the boiler to retain heat. Electric systems constantly drain power, driving your costs up. Though cheaper to install, electric floor heating costs much more to run, especially in large areas.

Here’s your quick primer on hybrid HVAC systems and how they work

Maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature can be a hefty expense, particularly during the hottest and coldest times of the year. Air conditioners and furnaces are among the most demanding appliances many households depend on, which highlights the benefits of today’s hybrid HVAC systems.

Hybrid HVAC systems can help reduce your energy spending, so you can keep your home more comfortable this winter.

Defining the technologies

Understanding the ins-and-outs of hybrid heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems starts with understanding these basic technologies:

  • Combustion furnaces are the most common appliances used to heat American homes—especially here in the Northeast. They burn oil or natural gas in order to create heat, which is then distributed by fans and ducts.
  • Heat pumps are electrical systems designed to move heat, rather than produce it. They circulate refrigerant, which absorbs and transfers heat as needed—out of the home during warm weather, or indoors when temperatures are cooler. On their own, these systems are most common in milder winter climates, such as those in the Sun Belt.
  • Hybrid systems employ a combination of these two technologies, switching automatically to the more efficient method of output based on the outdoor temperature. For example, during chilly—but not truly “cold”—nights here in Buffalo, the heat pump can efficiently heat your home. But, when the blizzard rolls in, the furnace is also there to help.

In short, a heat pump is more efficient for cooling and heating in more temperate climates. When there isn’t enough heat outside to pump indoors, however, a traditional furnace is preferable. Hybrid HVAC systems strike the ideal balance by making both technologies available and adjusting on the fly.

The pros and cons

A hybrid—also known as “dual-fuel”—setup offers the distinct advantage of greater energy-efficiency, with estimated savings up to 50 percent for residences in some areas. Furthermore, the climate control is often found to be more even and consistent, creating a more comfortable environment for you and your family. Less power usage also means more eco-friendly performance, reducing your household’s environmental impact.

Be advised that installing a new hybrid system will generally cost you a little more upfront compared to traditional HVAC configurations. Utility savings help to offset this cost difference, and in the long run, many hybrid systems pay for themselves completely.

Here are the signs your furnace is about to go out for good

Nothing lasts forever. Eventually, the combination of age, wear, and breakdowns will get to every home’s furnace. No one likes to be taken by surprise when it comes to a dead furnace, so, in this blog, we’ll be reviewing some of the signs your furnace is on it’s way out.

Here at Reimer, we offer both furnace repair and furnace replacement services. Whether you have an older furnace you need us to look at, or you think it’s time to replace your current system, give us a call.

A Reimer technician installs a new furnace in Buffalo, NY.5 signs your furnace is about to die for good

#1. You’re seeing higher energy bills than usual

Barring some other external cause (such as keeping your home dramatically warmer than in prior years, or a utility rate hike in your community), higher-than-usual energy bills during the winter are a sure sign that something is wrong with your heating system. However, here’s the thing: furnaces get more inefficient as they age, meaning that your current bills could be the new normal for you and your family.

We recommend that you start by giving us a call to have one of our techs out to your home to inspect your system. We’ll want to start by ruling out that the drastic change in energy-efficiency hasn’t been caused by the system needing to be repaired.

This is just another reason why it’s important to keep track of your energy usage. If this rise in energy bills is consistent or continues after repairs, it could be a sign that your furnace is on its last legs.

#2. You’re constantly needing repairs

Maintenance is important to keep your furnace at its best, but multiple repairs in a short time can mean your furnace won’t last much longer. This is especially true if you find yourself getting the same repairs over-and-over, season-after-season.

Like any mechanical device (including your car), your furnace consists of mechanical parts that incur a great deal of wear-and-tear over time. However, unlike your car, your furnace is often keeping your home warm in the Buffalo winter by running 24/7 for months at a time. That’s a lot of furnace mileage that gets added up to increased chances of breakdowns as the system ages.

#3. Intense noises are being generated by the system

It’s normal for home appliances—including your furnace—to make some noise when they run. However, you should be concerned if your furnace is significantly louder than it once was, or if you hear any of the following:

  • Rattling
  • Abnormally loud humming
  • Popping

These sounds go beyond those generated by normal operation, and could be a sign your furnace is done for. At the very least, you should call Reimer for emergency heating repair.

#4. Your home is being unevenly heated

You may notice that certain areas of your house are colder than others, which can be caused by poor furnace performance. You may also find yourself constantly adjusting the thermostat to achieve the perfect medium between extremes.

When it’s time for an upgrade, call the experts at Reimer!

Reimer Home Services can install a new furnace to see you through the cold this winter. By replacing your run-down furnace, you can see higher energy efficiency, which means a lower cost to keep your home comfortable. For more information on our products and services or to get a quote, call us.

Here’s why you should consider getting a new furnace before winter

With winter right around the corner, it’s finally time to give your air conditioner a break. However, that means your furnace is in for a good workout, considering the winters we’re known for here in Western New York. If you need a new furnace, now’s the time to make the switch. In this blog, we’ll review the reasons you should consider getting a new furnace before winter.

A Reimer technician installs a new furnace in Buffalo, NY.Get the reliability of a new system

If you have a furnace that’s nearing retirement, it might be a good idea to switch to a new furnace, professionally installed by the professionals here at Reimer. After all, the last thing you want is for this to be the last winter for your older furnace, which means you’re stuck replacing the system on the coldest days and nights of the year.

It almost goes without saying, but a new furnace is far less likely to break down than an older system that is 10, 15, 0r 20 years old. Plus, if that new system does have problems, it’s covered by the manufacturer’s warranty—a guarantee that has probably long since expired for your old furnace.

Boost your energy-efficiency

The most important feature homeowners want out of their HVAC system is energy-efficiency. After all, who doesn’t love saving money? Here’s the bad news: that older furnace that you’ve been putting up with just isn’t saving you money. In fact, it’s probably costing you far more in energy costs than a new energy-efficient system would.

Improve your home’s comfort

Of course, there’s the reason you have a furnace in the first place: your comfort. Older furnaces often struggle to keep up with the demand in your home; they run constantly and noisily, but can’t keep up with your heating needs. As a result, you’ll probably see hot and cold spots in your home—places where your home is freezing even as other rooms feel like they’re boiling.

Reimer specializes in installing new furnaces that are perfectly sized for your home. Here’s what that means: a furnace that is too small will struggle to meet your heating needs, while a system that’s too large will be constantly turning off-and-on, giving you poor performance and higher energy bills. At Reimer, we work to find the “Goldilocks” system for your home: just right.

Here’s why you should never handle your own furnace tune-up

If you are due for an annual furnace tune-up, you may be thinking you could save a few dollars and inspect the system on your own. After all, checking the furnace every year is a great way to be prepared for the cold winter ahead while ensuring your system is operating at top energy-efficiency for lower energy bills.

Pictured: Reimer technician performing a heating checkup in a Buffalo home.However, before attempting a DIY furnace tune-up, you should be aware of the risks that may arise for an untrained homeowner. Instead of doing things yourself, call in the experts at Reimer Home Services here in Buffalo and Western New York.

You may worsen the problem

Upon inspection, a do-it-yourselfer may discover that their furnace does in fact require some maintenance. Beyond watching a DIY video on the web and running to the local hardware store, the average homeowner is not equipped with the tools or experience needed to either tune-up or repair a home furnace.

Working on your furnace without the help of a trained HVAC professional may actually lead to an inefficient or inoperable furnace. By hiring a trained technician to inspect and repair your furnace, you can prevent problems now and in the future.

Safety risks increase

Homeowners attempting to inspect or repair a furnace on their own greatly increase the risk of injury to themselves and other home residents. Furnaces include many working parts and operate using gas or electricity. An untrained individual attempting to fix this machinery themselves is an invitation for trouble.

Don’t let your goal of saving a few bucks by doing things yourself turn into a safety hazard for others. Incorrectly repaired, a furnace can become a very dangerous fixture in any home.

System warranty may become void

Whether you feel well equipped to work on your home furnace or not, opening it up for a tune-up on your own may be a violation of your system’s warranty. Your standard manufacture warranty can be a great way to cover some of the costs of repair should your furnace have problems sooner than expected.

Turn to the professionals

Before you start a DIY furnace repair, think twice about the costly consequences that may ensue. At Reimer, your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities. Contact us to schedule a furnace tune-up with one of our trained and experienced furnace technicians.
