How Can I Prevent Hot/Cold Spots in My Home?

Zoning increases energy efficiency and creates even temperatures throughout your home.

Improve energy efficiency and make your home more comfortable by investing in a zoned HVAC system. Traditional systems apply the same standards to every room in your house. In contrast, a zoning system splits your property into groups of rooms with similar heating and cooling needs and deals with each of them individually.

Consider the benefits you get from zoned HVAC systems:

  • Eradicate hot and cold spots in your home. Nothing is as frustrating as walking from one chilly room into the next where the heat is overwhelming. Zoned systems don’t use one sensor to evaluate the comfort of your home. Zone temperatures are tracked separately, so heat is delivered only to those areas in need.
  • Save on your utility bills. Zoned systems only deliver warm or cool air to spaces that need it. By doing so, your home ends up using less energy and you will enjoy lower bills.
  • Increase your property’s value. Zoned HVAC systems are more effective and cheaper to run than traditional heating and cooling designs. They’re also seen as advanced technology. Combined, those benefits lead to higher property value, so if you’re considering selling your house anytime soon, a zoned HVAC setup will help you get more for it.
  • Our friendly team of professionals is here to answer your questions and provide the energy efficiency solutions you need for your home or business. Click this link to ask the experts at Carolina Comfort, Inc. about installing a zoned system in existing or new construction. Visit us online or call (803) 794-5526 to enjoy a more comfortable, affordable space today.

    How Important Is It to Get the Right Size HVAC Equipment?

    ... continue reading

    The size of your heating and air conditioning units will determine how well they work and how long they last.

    When it comes to heating and air conditioning equipment, ordering the right size is essential to proper operation. Undersized units will run continuously, wearing out early and driving up your bills. Oversized units will cycle on and off, leading to ineffective temperature control and early system failure. There’s no way to modify poorly sized units either, so make sure you work with a professional installer who has plenty of experience.

    Look at just a few of the considerations expert technicians make when sizing your HVAC units:

    • Size: While size is a major factor when determining how much heating and cooling power you’ll need, it’s not the only issue. Many variables impact the best size of HVAC product for your property, and the best installation teams know them all. Talk to your tech about how the best size for your home will be determined.
    • Layout: A two-story house with rooms in the attic has much different heating needs than a ranch with a finished basement. Square footage is just the beginning of judging a structure’s heating needs. Layout and overall home design make a big impact. Expect a technician to visit your home before any units are recommended.
    • Age: Older homes often have more drafts and gaps in construction. They may also need updated insulation. It isn’t uncommon for an older structure to require quite a bit more heating power than new construction or modifications before a new system is installed.

    Truly, these characteristics are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to picking the perfect heating and air conditioning equipment for your home. Professionals like the NATE-certified technicians at Carolina Comfort, Inc. can help you choose a model capable of keeping your property comfortable at the lowest cost.

    Why Should I Be Concerned about Indoor Air Quality?

    ... continue reading

    Indoor air quality has a serious impact on your health.

    Poor indoor air quality is fairly common. From cleaners to burned food and beauty products, there are thousands of contaminants being breathed in and out every day. These particles have the potential to cause cold, flu, and allergy-like symptoms. Some can make you seriously ill. If you’ve been battling feeling ill for a while, it may be time to have your home assessed for low indoor air quality.

    Here are just a few problems caused by indoor air pollution:

    • Headaches: The chemicals used in perfumes, cleaners, candles, and air fresheners exist long after the scent has faded away. When combined in large numbers, these can create a general feeling of illness, starting with head and body aches.
    • Cold and allergy symptoms: If you’ve ever experienced a sore throat, runny nose, cough or sensitive eyes whenever you visited a particular property, chances are dust wasn’t the only problem. Mold, old chemicals, and toxic fumes attack sensitive body tissues. They create immune reactions, but over time, they can also damage the immune system, especially in young children.
    • Cancer: According to the American Lung Association, building materials emit fumes and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as they age. Breathing these pollutants can irritate your lungs and cause disease. VOCs in particular have also been linked to different forms of cancer and heart disease.

    Thankfully, professional air purifying equipment is fast and effective at improving indoor air quality, and it’s more affordable than you might think. Are you in need of relief? Contact the friendly team of professionals at Carolina Comfort, Inc. today by clicking here!

    How Can I Make Sure My Heating System Is Prepared for Winter Weather?

    ... continue reading

    Maintenance agreements help your HVAC equipment run its best all year long.

    Maintenance agreements provide everything you need to get your system up and running—and keep it that way all winter long. While there are certain steps of a preventive check you could likely perform on your own, chances are you don’t have the experience, skills, or tools to handle the whole job.

    Check out all the steps a professional takes when determining whether your heating equipment is safe:


    Did you know most heater breakdowns occur because of electrical problems? Fuses go out, breakers flips, thermostat batteries wear out. Beyond those issues though, electrical components are very important to your system running well. If you don’t know how—and where—to check these components, you should probably call in a pro.


    Your heating equipment has several inlets and outlets you need to keep clear. Blockages prevent enough oxygen from getting to your burner. No oxygen means no flame, and ultimately, no warm air. An experienced HVAC technician can show you how to check and clear these areas, as well as install components aimed at keeping them free of debris.


    A few problems can prevent burners from sparking correctly. Some of them, like blocked airflow, have nothing to do with the burners themselves. Others do, and fixing them can be dangerous. Scrubbing burners free of buildup can be unnerving all on its own. A pinched or stalled gas supply? You’re better off leaving those issues to the experts.

    Contact Carolina Comfort, Inc. to enroll in one of our maintenance agreements before you need a fall preventive check. It’s the easiest way to protect your system at an affordable price.
