Gas Furnaces & Heaters


Gas Furnaces & Heaters


Gas Infrared Heaters

Natural gas infrared heaters heat the air to a higher temperature than other fuels, using less energy and placing money back into your pocket. You can have them installed in the largest rooms of your house and keep the temperature for the specific area different from another parts of the house. This is extremely useful during the winter months. There are many other advantages to having a gas infrared heater. One of them is that you will have heat even when the power goes out, giving you extra security with small children. Another is that they have the fewest emission rate of all heaters that are installed in homes. It is always a necessity to make sure your gas heater is installed by a professional, so that they can assure you there are no leaks that could harm you and your family.

Heat Pump Repair


Heat Pump Repair


A central heating system is vital to keeping you warm in the winter. A central heating system provides warmth to the whole interior of a building or home from one point to multiple rooms. When combined with other systems in order to control the building climate, the whole system may be an HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system. At Home and Commercial Services we repair and replace broken and inefficient heat pumps and heating systems. We work on all types of heating elements. Whether you have a heat pump that needs to be fixed, or a heat pump in need of replacement, we are here for you. Proudly serving the Birmingham area during the winter has been our job for over 30 years. For areas with smaller heating and cooling needs, heat pumps are an energy-efficient alternative to air conditioners and furnaces. Heat pumps work like refrigerators; they use energy to move heat from a cooler place to a warmer space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the cooler months, heat pumps transfer heat from the cooler outdoors to your warm house and during the warmer months, heat pumps move heat from your house into the warmer outdoors. Since heat pumps mover heat instead of generate heat, they can provide up to 4 times of the amount of energy they consume. We work on all brands and models of heat pumps. If you have a commercial or residential heat pump in need of service don’t wait, call today to get your personal in home estimate on what a heat pump tune up, repair, or even a complete reinstall will cost. Don’t be left in the cold this winter. If you are a member of our maintenance program we will perform one (1) free inspection a year. We also will waive after-hours charges, and you will receive 25% off of the total heat pump repair!

Air Duct Cleaning


Air Duct Cleaning


Keeping your ducts clean is an essential part of keeping your family safe from harmful air born bacteria, and allergens. We can come clean your air ducts out, and greatly improve the quality of the air in your home. Not only that. If you have any holes or kinks in your air duct work, you may not be getting all of the conditioned air from your unit to your rooms. If you are in the greater Birmingham Alabama area, please give us a call. We will be there as quickly as possible to assess your needs, and work with you for a solution inside your budget.

Reasons to have your ducts cleaned:

  • If you notice mold growing inside hard surfaces (e.g., sheet metal) ducts or on other parts of your cooling and heating system or anywhere in basement areas.
  • If the conditions that were causing mold growth in the past are not changed, mold growth will recur.
  • There are a lot of parts to your cooling and heating system that are not easily accessible.
  • Ducts can be infested with vermin, e.g. rodents or insects
  • Ducts accumulate excessive amounts of dust and debris that are released into the home from your supply registers.
  • Always remember that it may look like mold but only a professional can determine whether it is or is not and sometimes lab analysis may be needed for confirmation.
  • If your air ducts are insulated, when the insulation gets wet there is no way to properly clean them. We advise that the insulation be removed and replaced.
  • A good air duct cleaning can help your system run better.

Thermostats


Thermostats


A thermostat is a main part of the control system. It senses the main temperature of the house so that the house’s temperature can be kept at or close to the desired temperature. The control unit performs this by turning the cooling and heating systems on or off to maintain the correct temperature. If your thermostat goes out, the entire system can stop working. The problem can also be a control unit for a cooling or heating system or a main component part of an air conditioner or heater. Thermostats can be constructed in many ways and may use a variety of sensors to measure the temperature. The output of the sensor then controls the heating or cooling apparatus. HCS specializes in HVAC work as well as the repair and installation of thermostats. We do all of our work in and around the Birmingham Alabama area. If you are experiencing any problems with a heating and cooling unit in your home of place of business, don’t hesitate to call us at (205) 798-0635. All of the thermostats we install are Energy Star efficient, and can be programmed to fit your lifestyle needs, or company needs.

Troubleshooting Thermostats

There are some quick things you can do yourself to see if your thermostat is the culprit in your central heating and air unit not working correctly or at all. Is your furnace or air conditioner not working and you suspect the thermostat? Here’s a way check it. Check the Temperatures Displayed. If the room temp seems off, check it against another thermometer. A digital thermostat can usually be calibrated.

Calibrate Room Temp

Mercury thermostats cannot be calibrated, but need to be level in order to work correctly.

Check Connections

Make sure all connections have good contact and are tight.

Taking Thermostats out of the Equation

If all your equipment is coming on without the thermostat, then it was the source of the problem.

Walk-In Coolers


Walk-In Coolers


Walk-in Coolers are the life line of many restaurants, bars, gas stations, and commercial food service institutions. They depend on a quality installation and maintenance to maintain a constant temperature to keep the food safe for consumption. Many of us forget their importance until something has gone wrong.

Coolers and freezers work in the background of the business and are out of mind expenses until someone notices they are not as cool as they used to be inside. In the food industry, the health department will deduct points on the health rating if units are not cooling properly. Thankfully, Home and Commercial services has over 30 years of refrigeration experience, and we are fully equipped to handle any issue that might arise with your walk-in cooler. We also provide maintenance agreements that will keep your walk-in cooler running to its maximum efficiency saving you money on your monthly utility bills. In addition, providing your Walk-in Cooler with quality scheduled maintenance could help extend the life of your units and possibly prevent higher repair cost in the future.

Like most of us have you ever thought about how your walk-in cooler works?

Many of us would believe that the walk-in cooler is pretty much an oversized refrigerator in our home. Right? Well, we would all be wrong.

A walk-in cooler is nothing like your home refrigerator. Yes, they both cool the food and keep theinside temperature somewhere in the 35°F-37°F range, but your home refrigerator robs the air out of your freezer and a commercial walk-in cooler creates cool air by using an evaporator and a condenser. In other words, a walk-in cooler uses something similar to an A/C type unit or heat pump to cool the insulated space. This is where things start getting tricky, and where you will need someone who is well qualified in refrigeration to service your unit.

A refrigeration unit has some of the same components as a cooling unit or heat pump in the home, but not all things are created equal. We understand the complex issues in refrigeration, and also understand that sometimes the smallest thing could be causing your unit not to cool properly. Did you know that it could be something as simple as the rubber gasket on the door? Something that small could cause a disruption on the seal of the door, and the cool air inside begins to rush out into the room.

We want you to educate you about your walk-in cooler. We will tell you some of the simple things you can look for and fix yourself to help save you money on your utility bill and maintenance costs.

Stop losing money and start saving today with one call to Home and Commercial Services at 205-798-0635.
