Heating Systems

Top Flight Trade Ally

Heating systems are the largest consumers of energy in our homes and businesses. At Archibald Heating and Air Conditioning we are constantly striving to provide the most efficient heating systems available today.

There’s a 500 pound Gorilla in your basement and he’s eating your lunch!

That’s right, that 500 pound block of Cast Iron in your basement (your current boiler or furnace) is eating your lunch! Keeping a boiler hot 7 days a week- 24 hours a day to create some hot water when you need it? Operating an oversized heating system because the installer said, “bigger is better”? These are the contributing factors to the “Energy Gorilla” being well fed.

In the year 2008 with energy costs sky-rocketing, we need to keep a vigilant eye on the amount of energy we are using. Installing High Efficiency heating equipment is the first place to start. Low-mass designs of today are in the forefront of energy efficiency.

No more heating 400-500 pounds of Cast Iron to heat 8-10 gallons of water.

No more keeping that boiler hot waiting for 1 gallon of hot water.

No more stack losses created by that venting system attached to that boiler.

No more wasted heat, letting that block of Cast Iron cool off after the heating cycle is over.

Starving that “Energy Gorilla”

Low mass boiler designs have been available in Europe for the last 50 years. The Europeans have been experiencing an Energy Crunch for a long time. The technology available to the Europeans has been available in the United States for a long time, it just has not been offered. Heat the system quick, deliver the heat to the space efficiently and cool down the system after the heating cycle is over. These are the benefits of today’s High Efficiency Heating Systems.

Having been in the industry since the first huge energy crunch, “the oil embargo of the seventies”, Archibald Heating and Air Conditioning has been offering energy efficient equipment for a long time. We are truely “experts” on saving you money”.

The ways that we can starve that “Energy Gorilla” are numerous:

Savings Success!

Installation of High Efficiency Heating Equipment: These products can cut your energy consumption by 40% or more!

Keeping that system maintained: Carbon build-up on the Heat Exchanger can significantly reduce the heating units ability to transfer that all important heat that you have paid for. In the case of oil heating, keeping the proper nozzle size can reduce the amount of energy consumed.

Replacing dirty filters: Most filter manufacturers require monthly checking or changing of air filters located in the heating unit. These filters are very important because when they get dirty, the air-flow across the filter is hampered. Restricted air-flow makes the heating unit work harder and reduces energy efficiency.

Cleaning Air Conditioning Coils: Many heating systems today are integrated with cooling systems. Using the same fan to distribute the cooled air may be allowing the cooling coil to be clogged with dirt and debris. This can have the same affect as mentioned above. Having the cooling system maintained annually can save 20% on cooling costs.

Using an Independent Service Contractor: Independent service contractors will typically act in the best interest of the equipment owner. Proper nozzle sizes, not the largest nozzle that the unit can accept is a good way to save money. Evaluation of over-all system performance and maintenence are very important factors.

The Building Envelope: Looking at the building as a whole, are the windows and doors providing the energy efficiency that we need?

Developing a lasting relationship with a Service Contractor: Basing Service on a cost only basis can maybe save you a little money today, but developing a long lasting relationship with a Service Provider can save you money in the long run. Look for a contractor that offers service agreements, these service agreements will keep your equipment running more efficiently for a longer time.

Indoor Air Quality-How Important?

With most Americans spending 90% of their time indoors and almost 1500 operating hours a year on our heating systems, how can Indoor Air Quality not be considered as important? Our heating systems process every cubic foot of the air in our homes 4-6 time and hour. Filtration and humidification are very important aspects of the heating system that all too often not considered.


Easing some of the Indoor Air Quality concerns can be as simple as installing a high efficiency central system humidifier. Central System Humidifiers provide that much needed moisture to our air. Cracking and drying furniture, out of tune musical instruments, dry painful sinuses. Most of these symptoms can be alleviated by a well installed Central System Humidification System. We at Archibald Heating and Air Conditioning can advise you as to which system will best suit your individual needs. Please feel free to contact us for a quote to install a humidification system alone or with a new high efficiency heating system.


With the heating and cooling systems processing the all of the air in our homes 4-6 times an hour that little blue fiberglass filter just is not enough! Removing the particles that irritate our respiratory systems is one of the keys to true comfort. Installing a High Effiiciency Filter, as part of an equipment change-out or add-on to an existing system will make your heating and cooling system more efficient. A high efficiency filtration system can cut down on the amount of dusting by removing those particulates that become entrained in our indoor air.

Duct Cleaning

Do your ducts look like the ducts in this picture? Dirty dark stains around the registers from your heating system? The particles that collect due to lack of filtration can build up in your duct system. These particles collect in the corner and low velocity air-flow portions of your duct system. They begin to cling together until the duct system looks like the one in the picture on the left.

This build up impedes air-flow, which effects the performance of the system blower. Equipment which works harder is less efficient, as a result the energy costs rise. These build-up are also places that harbor creatures such as the dust mite. Dust mites feast on such build-ups and their fecal matter begins to build-up in the duct system as well.

At Archibald Heating and Air Conditioning we employ every day, an entire system based concept of heating and cooling your home or business. From total system installations, high efficiency consultations or duct cleaning. We can bring to you and your family a whole system approach to HVAC.
