Building a new home or remodeling your current home is an exciting adventure for any family. If you are designing your dream home in , you may be overwhelmed by the number of decisions you need to make.
One decision you do not want to make hastily is what kind of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system you will install. This is also true when it comes time to replace or upgrade your current heating and cooling system.
Many homeowners select a furnace as their heating option. If that is where you are headed, be sure to call Lightning Mechanical for recommendations and assistance.
Furnaces have a long history in helping families keep warm in with cold weather. Today there are a vast number of furnaces on the market. They can provide reliable heat for small, medium, and large homes as well as single-story or multistory designs. Furnaces are designed to work well in urban locations, subdivisions, or country homes.
The good news is there is a furnace designed just for your particular home. Let our professional team help you find it.
We can recommend a correct-sized furnace so you always have comfortable heat on the coldest winter days while not wasting energy at the same time. We can go over various efficiency ratings, fuel sources, and features so you get all the things important to you in a new furnace. And we can work with you on budget and timing.
Heat pump technology has changed a great deal since it was invented. Although it was a byproduct of a deep freezer experiment, the heat pumps of today provide an effective, efficient way to deliver heating and cooling services to homeowners in .
How does a heat pump work? Heat pumps operate by transferring heat from one location to another.
In the colder months, heat pumps take heat from outdoors and send it indoors to warm your home. Then in the warmer months, they do the reverse like an air conditioner and remove the heat from indoors and move it outside. Our professionals at Lightning Mechanical can talk with you about your specific heating and cooling needs to see if a heat pump may be a good solution for you.
One big advantage of heat pumps is they do not burn fuel such as wood, oil, or natural gas. This means you typically reduce your energy bills in the long run, and your family’s heating and cooling needs are met in a more environmentally friendly manner.
Indoor Air Quality
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American spends 93 percent of their time indoors. It’s no wonder that poor indoor air quality can have such a detrimental effect on your health. Our professionals at Lightning Mechanical can test your indoor air quality as well as provide tips and services to help you improve it in your home.
Common indoor air pollutants include dust and dust mites, pet hair and dander, bacteria and viruses, smoke, and chemicals from cleaning supplies and new furniture. Most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems use an air filter to remove some of these pollutants. However, the size of particulates removed may vary depending on the quality of the filter.
Poor indoor air quality can lead to general discomfort or possibly more serious health issues. Asthma and allergies can both be aggravated by poor indoor air quality, causing additional respiratory distress.
Instead, consider having one of our air quality professionals come out and evaluate your home. Air duct cleaning, air purification systems, and HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters may be recommended as part of a remediation program. Our trained experts will also inspect your HVAC system for potential leaks of carbon monoxide and other dangerous substances.
The last thing you want to happen in the heat of the summer is to turn on your air conditioning system and find it blowing hot air or to fire up your furnace to find it broken as the mercury drops in the winter. One way to prevent this scenario from occurring is to schedule regular HVAC maintenance service calls during the shoulder seasons. Our professionals at Lightning Mechanical will be happy to come out in the spring to inspect your air conditioner and again in the fall to check your furnace.
Our trained technicians will perform a multipoint inspection to make sure everything is in good working order. In addition, they will thoroughly clean all the components of your system and change filters. If they discover any worn parts, they will advise replacement to avoid a costly repair later. Lubrication, tightening of electrical connections, and a safety check are included.
By investing in regular HVAC maintenance for your home, you will keep your home comfortable. In addition, you can save money on your energy bills in and increase the longevity of your entire system in the long run. Maintenance inspections are usually much less expensive than emergency repair calls, saving you money down the road.

Zone Control Systems
Technology continues to advance on all fronts today, especially in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) field. One of the more exciting new developments is zone control systems . These systems tie into your overall HVAC system; however, they provide you with superior temperature control in different zones of your home.
Here’s how they work. Each zone of your home has its own thermostat, which can be programmed by day and time. As one zone “calls” your central system, automatic dampers open and close to direct the heating or cooling to that particular zone. If a second zone puts in a request, dampers adjust accordingly. Your HVAC system will continue to run until all zones reach their desired temperatures.
Our Lightning Mechanical team can work with you to see if your current HVAC system can work with a zone control system. In most cases, controlling temperature by zones of your home will reduce the amount of energy you consume and lower your monthly utility bills.
Gone are the days of trying to determine the optimum temperature for your entire home or trying to manually close and open vents in the middle of your daily duties. Zone control systems take the worry out of managing your home’s comfort levels and energy consumption.
Contact Lightning Mechanical at 813-492-5575 with any questions about zone control systems. Our team would be happy to help you determine if it’s right for you. Request zone control system service online today.
