HVAC Service: Dehumidification System Comfort You Can Feel

Appalachian Refrigeration offers Lennox dehumidifiers
Appalachian Refrigeration, Marion NC offers Lennox de-humidifiers

I bet you’ve been to Aunt Zelda’s house and found it hard to breathe because of the nearly overwhelming moldy fragrance permeating every room. Or maybe your own business or home feels stuffy, has water stains on the walls or ceiling. Time for a dehumidifier! Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating in Marion, NC, recommends the Humiditrol® Whole-Home Dehumidification System for improved indoor air quality because its patented technology helps maintain optimal moisture levels throughout your entire home or business. We are your local, expert heating and air conditioning service company, specializing in all your HVAC needs.

What if your home or business is kinda-maybe too damp? You could buy a hygrometer, use it maybe once to measure the amount of moisture in the air, and then buy a small dehydrator for the basement, hoping for the best. Chances are it will be inadequate. Or you could do it right and call our technicians for a professional moisture assessment. We will measure the moisture in several rooms of your house or business in order to give you an accurate report.

A lot of people think that a portable dehumidifier designed for a single room will work on the whole house if the door is left ajar. Wrong! It’s kind of like hoping that a small desk fan will cool the other end of the house from your bedroom. They just don’t work that way. Also, if you buy a smaller unit in hopes of saving money by using it for the entire house, be aware that it won’t last as long as a unit designed for the correct amount of space. You’ll end up spending more in the long run than choosing a properly sized dehumidifier.

If your home or business has too much moisture, you probably already know it because of that mustiness you can almost taste, or water marks on the walls, floors or ceilings. Maybe you have mold that returns even after you clean it with fungicide-based cleansers. It’s stinky, frustrating, and can become dangerous to your health if the mold continues to grow. However, you have a reliable company to turn to for answers. We’ll be happy to check it out for you, to be sure. Our HVAC technicians are experts and know how to improve indoor air quality with a properly sized dehumidifier. Our whole-house (or business) units tie in directly with your existing heating and air conditioning systems. Located in Marion, NC, Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating is here to serve you!

HVAC Service: Whole-Home Power Humidifier: Your Answer to Dry Homes This Winter

Whole-Home Power Humidifier
Appalachian Refrigeration offers Lennox  Whole-Home Power Humidifier

You know the old trick from grammar school of scooting your feet across the carpeting just so you can zap your younger sister right in the top of her ponytail-parted hair. I bet you’ve even zapped someone at work! Static electricity is more prevalent in the winter because cold air is drier than in the summer. It’s why you get chapped lips and itchy, dry skin. For new construction or upgrade projects, chances are your home or business needs a humidifier to improve the indoor air quality, ultimately increasing the health value of the working environment. Located in Marion, NC, Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating offers HVAC, heating and air conditioning service. We can help you choose the right whole-building humidifier.

Give us a call to discuss the Healthy Climate® Power Humidifier. It attaches to your furnace or air handler and adds moisture to air moving through the duct system. A built-in fan allows the unit to circulate humidified air even when your heating system is not in operation. Although some people use small, portable humidifiers, they don’t offer a lot of moisture control and you have to always keep an eye on the water levels. By contrast, whole home or business humidifiers put water vapor into the duct work so humidity can be monitored and controlled by your thermostat just as it regulates temperature.

The benefits of installing a whole-system humidifier include general health improvements. Viruses such as those that cause the flu and common cold thrive in dry environments. Wintry, hacking coughs flare up in the winter, a direct correlation to respiratory sensitivity to dry air. Our sinuses and bronchial passages need soothing moisture in the winter to help alleviate and prevent allergies and asthma symptoms. Help with a humidifier!

The building itself and your furnishings will thank you for installing a humidifier. Dry air can damage wood floors, furniture, artwork, and even electronics. Protect the whole building with a humidifier!

Did you know that humidifiers actually save you money? Yep, it’s true. Dry air feels colder, so you end up turning up the thermometer. Humidifiers make the rooms feel warmer at lower temps. What’s not to love about it? Give Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating a call today. We’ll help you get the indoor air quality you need with a humidifier that will attach to your existing heating and air conditioning system. Our HVAC service technicians are experts and can do the job right the first time.

Why Choose Lennox’s Elite ® Series?

The Elite ® series, such as the ELO183 Oil Furnace above will give you clean, quiet and comfortable heat in your home. With an efficiency rating of 83%, this economical model can save you hundreds of dollars every year. Compared to your old, inefficient oil furnace, your pocketbook is sure to appreciate the difference!

Lennox uses a Beckett combustion chamber, which is made of alumina-silica ceramic fiber. This provides a quiet operation and super-efficient combustion for greater fuel economy. A heavy-gauge steel heat exchanger ensures that air moves evenly over its smooth surface, increasing the heating efficiency. Increased efficiency means you’re saving money, and everyone loves that!

The Elite ® series has an insulated blower compartment, which minimizes operating sounds. This means no more furnace banging, operational groaning and other spooky noises coming from the basement when your old furnace kicks on. Why, you’ll sleep better just knowing that single fact, we’re pretty sure. Your kids will, anyway.

Lennox means quality. Period. Another example of this is in the heavy-duty fuel pump that comes with the Elite ® system. It is much more efficient than the older fuel pumps in oil furnaces and it also provides a faster shutoff of oil flow. Translation? Increased savings to you.

As with all Lennox products, their oil furnaces come with a great warranty. This is an unspoken statement of pride and faith in their products. They are quality and the warranty backs it up.
Winter is coming, folks. Don’t wait until your old oil furnace fails with the first snowfall. Replace that dinosaur with a Lennox oil system.

New Construction or Remodel Job In Marion NC? HVAC Sales Service

The summer season is hot, in more ways than the outside temperature. New construction projects are soaring, and one very important part of new construction or remodeling projects is an adequate ventilation system. Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating is the area’s most reputable company around to handle your commercial or residential HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) project. A lot of companies only offer HAC (Heating and Air Conditioning) services because of the additional training and education required to also specialize in Ventilation. The problem arises when you need more than a simple window-mounted air conditioner. Any time you need ventilation (such as a rooftop-mounted system or air handler) you’ve got to tie into existing or new ductwork. Not every service company can handle that. Appalachian Refrigeration is your answer to that dilemma. Our highly trained staff has ventilation installation training and experience like no one else!

It’s not just about ventilation, though. New, remodel or adding an addition to your home or business requires careful analysis of your year-round indoor temperature requirements. If your business is a restaurant, you’ll likely need two different systems: one to maintain kitchen temperatures, and one for the ambient comfort of your patrons. Medical practices and smaller business offices usually need simpler set-ups. What about your new or remodeled home project? If you’re adding living space in the basement or enclosed garage, the additional draws on your old system aren’t likely to be adequate. The air conditioner could very likely fail, and it always seems to happen on the hottest days!

Don’t get caught by surprise. Give Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating a call today. We’ll be happy to help ensure your new or remodeled project is properly cooled this summer, and comfortably warm come winter. We’re reputable, licensed, and always handle even the most complex ventilation projects with a smile. We love what we do and are happy to help you.

Commercial Air Conditioning Increases Employee Productivity and Clientele Comfort

Air Conditioning Increases Productivity

It’s hot outside, no denying that. Summer is here in full swing.

A client of ours recently needed an air conditioning upgrade. Her office was like an oven. Employees were doing more sweating at their desks than actual work. How could they, when they were melting in their seats? The air conditioning was on the blink and desk fans just weren’t cutting it.

Her customers were complaining, and beginning to avoid her business entirely. Talk about trouble at the cash register! She had to do something, and fast. Enter Appalachian Refrigeration.

Our team of experienced technicians was able to assess the problems with her old air conditioning unit and make several recommendations. They shared valuable insight concerning each option, gladly sharing the information so she could make an informed, wise decision. She ended up choosing to have a new system installed, ensuring that her business would have warrantied comfort for years to come.

She chose to have a Coleman air conditioning unit installed. Coleman, the name synonymous with durability and comfort in the camping world, is also the manufacturer of some of the best air conditioning (and heating) equipment in the country. It’s an American-owned company that uses American labor, right here on native soil. Their warranty is one of the best in the industry, too, which is proof that they stand proudly behind their products. So in choosing Coleman, she also chose to support America!

Appalachian Refrigeration was proud to be able to help out a customer in desperate need of air conditioning. Her employees will be more productive, and her clientele know that their comfort is important to her as well.

If your office isn’t adequately cooled by your current air handler/air conditioner, please give Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating a call today. Our knowledgeable staff has the expertise to help you get the problem fixed right the first time. Serving the greater Marion and Asheville, NC area, we’re only a phone call away!

Air Conditioning Service For the Elderly

With the onset of summer heat, temperatures are soaring, easily reaching triple digits in some areas. Heat stroke and dehydration can become a real concern for loved ones who have no air conditioning in their homes, or whose air is no longer adequate. Even with the help of box fans, indoor air temperatures can be dangerous.

You need a reliable, local company you can trust to ensure the air conditioning system is working properly. Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating is a trusted service company that understands your concern for loved ones. We understand because we are family-owned and operated, serving McDowell and surrounding counties. Our core values include honesty, and friendly service that are reasonable priced.

Perhaps you need a new air conditioning system to be installed. We offer an incredible selection of units including Coleman, Carrier and Trane, three of our best sellers guaranteed to keep you and your loved ones living in comfort during the blistering days of summer. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you decide which brand, style and size will best fit your air conditioning needs. And after you’ve decided which unit is perfect for your needs, our experienced staff of service technicians will install it for you, and will make certain it is running perfectly.

Our services don’t stop there. We also offer Preventative Maintenance plans in which one of our technicians will inspect your unit on a regular schedule. We recommend inspections twice annually, with the onset of the hot and the cold seasons to ensure optimal performance for the different temperature requirements.

Give us a call today to discuss your summer air conditioning needs. We are here to serve you!

Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating – Proud Sponsor of McDowell Cheer Masters!

McDowell Cheer Masters
Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating – Proud Sponsor of McDowell Cheer Masters!

Because Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating cares about our community we were proud to sponsor McDowell’s Cheer Masters this year. What on earth is that? We’re glad you asked!

McDowell Cheer Masters is the county’s first all-star cheerleading team, a safe alternative to cheerleading for McDowell County residents. The program offers two age-based levels of premier cheer training, plus professional classes in tumbling skills. They are, in essence, a private cheerleading group that competes against other teams across the state and even performs at various events, such as birthday parties. Katrina Dorsey, the group’s founder, said, “McDowell girls train longer, tumble harder and stunt higher than the rest of the cheer world. That’s why we’re masters of the competition.”

Although Dorsey offers training in two different age groups (6-12 and 10-18), we felt like we could help the 10-18 group more effectively with our sponsorship. It is in this age group where girls turn into young women. We want to be able to help them make this shift gracefully, in a group of other positive, like-minded young ladies. The confidence and physical grace they find in cheering will build their self-esteem, helping them throughout the tough high school and college years. We want to make a difference in our community!

Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating is a family-owned business serving McDowell County and the surrounding area. Commercial and residential refrigeration and air conditioning sales and service are our specialty. Give us a call today for more information!

Time for an Air Conditioner in Your Home?

Coleman Heat pump
Appalachian Refrigeration carries Coleman heat pumps

Summer is here. It came stomping into our lives like muddy boots on the kitchen floor, pushing right past spring, making a mark in our lives. Sweltering heat and clammy skin are now the norm. It doesn’t have to be so unbearable! You can enjoy a comfortably cool home this summer with a central air/heat pump from Appalachian Refrigeration.

Remember last summer when you had to get by with fans in the windows to try to draw in air two degrees cooler than your house? Even though the ceiling fans ran continuously on high, they didn’t do anything but put dust on your tables and decorations. And remember those restless nights when you couldn’t sleep for the heat? You went to bed grouchy and got up in the same mood simply because you weren’t comfortable. Chances are you’ve been experiencing the same heat already and we’ve just begun the dog days of summer.

This summer doesn’t have to be a repeat of last year’s discomfort! If you had a new heat pump/air conditioner, you could live in the luxury of a comfortable house temperature. And come winter, that same heat pump will also keep you warm. What’s not to love about this idea?

Give us a call today for a little more information and to see what size heat pump will provide your indoor climate requirements. We serve the greater Marion-Asheville, NC counties, so we have the experience you need in delivering and setting up your new heat pump/air conditioner. A simple phone call could change your life for the better. We’re here to serve you!
