As the weather cools down in Northeast Ohio, are you hearing strange sounds in your home?  Halloween is fast approaching, but before you try to communicate with the other side, consider that the noises you’re hearing could be due to a problem with your heating or plumbing system.  Hissing sounds could mean there is air leaking from the ducts.  Clanking or banging sounds from your radiators may be the result of air trapped in the system.  High water pressure in your pipes or a faulty toilet fill valve could create a groaning or whining sound.

If you’re hearing strange noises, consider calling the experts at Verne & Ellsworth Hann heating, cooling, plumbing and boilers.  Our friendly and knowledgeable technicians and plumbers can evaluate your situation and find the source of any unusual noises.  Verne & Ellsworth Hann has been quieting homes and making Northeast Ohio homeowners comfortable for over 64 years.  Located in Cleveland Heights and owned and operated by brothers Bill and Chris Hann, Verne & Ellsworth Hann is the ONLY Hann family owned HVAC company in Cleveland.   –  216-932-9755

Choosing the HVAC company is an important decision for homeowners.  It’s important to do your research and choose a reputable company.  Here are some tips for choosing an HVAC company.

  • Ask for referrals:  Asking friends, family or neighbors which HVAC company they use can be helpful.  Word of mouth is very powerful.
  • Make sure the HVAC company is licensed, insured and bonded:  You can call or check your cities website or ask for information directly from the company.  An insured company will financially protect your home from damages.
  • Check the company’s ratings:  You will want to verify that the HVAC company you choose has a decent rating and low volume of customer complaints.  You can visit the Better Business Bureau website and check Google reviews.
  • Verify the company will provide you with a written contract:  It’s important to put details in writing.  You should know what to expect as far as cost, equipment, and the work that will be performed.

We’ve all had a good laugh from a meme!  Air conditioning memes are no exception.  Most people are extremely grateful for their central air conditioning and can’t imagine living without it.  Aside from the fact that a whole home cooling system keeps you comfortable in the summer heat, there are actual benefits to installing central air conditioning.

Air conditioning systems have greatly improved the quality of our indoor air.  A/C can actually reduce levels of allergens and pollutants in the home.  Many people that suffer from allergies find it crucial to have air conditioning.

Central cooling systems can help you sleep better.  Studies have found that the body will fall asleep and stay asleep longer if you are cool.  Whole home air conditioning can also reduce noise because you would keep your windows closed at night.

Rising temperatures can be extremely dangerous, especially for the young and the elderly.  Having central air conditioning can reduce the number of heat-related deaths during the summer.

Central air conditioning can improve your health by preventing the spread of bacteria and infections.

With all of the benefits of whole home air conditioning, what are you waiting for?  Call Verne & Ellsworth Hann today for a free estimate to add or replace air conditioning in your home.  Even if your home is heated with a boiler, Verne & Ellsworth Hann has a solution to keep you cool on the hottest of Northeast Ohio days!

The Fourth of July, also known as Independence Day, has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations date back to the 18th century.  On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence.

Here are some Independence Day fun facts!

  • The Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 men from 13 colonies.
  • Only John Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence  on July 4th, 1776.  All the others signed later.
  • The only two signers of the Declaration of Independence who later served as President of the United States were John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.
  • Presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on the 4th of July.
  • The stars on the original American flag were in a circle so all the Colonies would appear equal.
  • The White House held its first 4th of July party in 1801.
  • Independence Day celebrations include fireworks, parades and barbecues.  Approximately 150 million hot dogs are consumed on this day!

Verne & Ellsworth Hann wishes everyone a safe and happy 4th of July!

Air conditioners use two different types of refrigerant.  Older models use R-22 and newer models use R-410A.  R-22 refrigerant is being phased out due to a revised Clean Air Act that requires all new air conditioning systems to use substances that do not deplete the ozone layer.  R-22 is still available but no manufacturer can produce this type of unit and all R-22 units must be eliminated by 2030.

They type of oil used in air conditioning compressors is also different.  The R-22 compressor uses a mineral oil, while the R-410A compressor uses a synthetic oil.  These oils cannot be mixed.  If you were to put the R-410A refrigerant into an R-22 compressor, the motor would overload and burn out causing the system to shut down.  The R-410A also has more pressure pushing through the tubes of the unit than an R-22 compressor.  This could cause the compressor tubes to burst.

There is also a significant difference in cost.  The R-22 refrigerant is substantially more than the R-410A.  With that being said, if you have an older air conditioning unit that requires R-22 and is low on refrigerant, you would most likely be better off replacing the unit than having to add several pounds of R-22.
