Stop Ignoring Your Air Ducts

Unfortunately, in a lot of homes, air ducts get the out of sight, out of mind treatment. However; if you’re in the habit of running your air conditioning unit to cool your home in the summer and your furnace to keep yourself from freezing to death in the winter, then regularly cleaning your ducts is vital.

All of the air that circulates through your home, from your heating and cooling systems, runs through your air ducts. Which means all of the dust and particles, floating in the air, will collect and stick inside your ducts. Causing air flow and air quality issues inside you’re home.Before-After

There are several major benefits to keeping your ducts clean and the air flowing freely throughout your home.

1. Prevent Mold Growth

Everyone dreads the possibility of mold growing in their home. Mold can cause some serious health issues and severely lower the value of your home. Now, you already know that basements, bathrooms, kitchens and other potentially moist places  in your home are hot
spots for mold growth.

But many people forget that dirty air ducts, create the perfect environment for mold growth, as well. Air ducts full of mold are particularly dangerous, because the moment you kick on your heating and cooling units, those mold spores shoot directly into the very air your breathing.

2. Save on your Energy Bill

Dirty, clogged air ducts, means that the hot or cold air you’re trying to use to make your home comfortable, isn’t flowing easily through your duct system. Meaning your air conditioner and furnace have to work harder and run more often, to produce enough hot or cold air to keep your home at the desirable temperature.

Cleaning your ducts means that the air from your heating and cooling syst
ems can flow through your vents freely. Which means you’ll spend less money on your energy bill, since it will take less effort from your heating and cooling systems to regulate the temperature of your home.

3. You’ll Breathe Easier

Each time you turn on your air conditioner or furnace, you’re forcing air to pass through your air ducts. This air picks up the dust and other indoor air pollutants, that have collected in your ventilation system, and shoots them right into the air you and your family are breathing.

You may not see these particles floair ductsating around you, but this dust and debris from your air ducts maybe causing you some unpleasant health issues. If you or members of your family battle allergies or respiratory issues, your air ducts are likely causing or increasing these issues.

Ensuring that your air ducts are clean and clear, you will dramatically increase
the air and living quality of your home.  So, clean your ducts to start enjoying cleaner air and a better quality of living.

4. Less System Maintenance

The dust and debris in your air ducts not only flow through the air you’re breathing, but they travel through your heating and cooling systems as well. Overtime, this debris can clog air filters and fans, cause extra wear and tear on your heating and cooling systems and drastically shorten the lifetime of your units.

Proper air duct cleaning is vital to your home maintenance and should be moved to the top of your home improvement priority list. To have your air ducts professionally cleaned and maintained call (866) 844-3770 or visit trusttiger.com, to learn more about the importance of clean, debris free air ducts.

Does My Furry Friend Need Air Conditioning?

kittens-555822_640

We love our pets and they love us, but sometimes their comfort might slip our minds. In order to save money on our electrical bills, many of us will turn our air conditioning units off or up really high so they don’t run all day while we’re gone. However, doing this can pose some serious issues to our beloved pets.

Cats and dogs typically come with coats of warm fur, which they can’t remove when they get too hot. Additionally, unlike humans, animals can’t adjust the temperature of the air conditioning unit back down in the afternoon, when the heat really starts to rise.

The good news is that you don’t have to choose between keeping your wallet fat and your pets healthy, happy and comfortable. You can run your air conditioning anywhere from 72 to 80 degrees while you’re out. By doing this, you can still save a good amount of IMG_7999-savemoney on your electrical bill and keep your pets comfortable.

If you want to ensure that your air conditioning unit is running at its optimal potential so you can save some major dough on your electric bill. Go to trusttiger.com or call 1-888-9TIGER1 to set up an inspection of your air conditioning unit.

Are you still worried about your pets overheating while you’re out and about? Check out these simple tips to help keep your furry family members cool and comfortable when you’re not around.

1. Fans to the Rescue

If you love the feel of a fan blowing cool air your way on a hot August day, chances are that your pets will love it too. Setup a box fan on the floor in front of an air conditioning vent. Your pet will love the cold air blowing on their fur in the middle of an afternooAir Conditioningn.

2. The Frozen Bottle Trick

Freeze a bottle of water overnight, then wrap it in a towel and place it in your pet’s favorite resting spot. When your pet gets overheated she can curl up in her favorite spot comfortably.

3. Get Grooming

All of that fur on your baby is undoubtedly adorable, but it’s causing her a lot of discomforts. So, head over to the groomer and say goodbye to all of that hot, hot fur! Don’t worry, her fur will grow back a lot faster than you might think and she’ll be a lot more comfortable during the summer months. As an added bonus, you’ll be almost completely pet hair free for a couple of months!

4. Provide a Nice Refreshing Drink

Drop a few ice cubes in your pet’s water bowl before you head out. The ice will help keep your pets water cooler, longer and a lot of animals love playing with and munching on ice cubes. So, they will be cool and entertained while you’re away!

8 Bathroom Cleaning Hacks, Using Household Items

Let’s face it; your bathroom is probably the dirtiest room in your home. No matter how hard you scrub, how many expensive cleaning products or chemicals you buy, your bathroom never seems clean enough. (And that’s not even taking into account all of the germs and bacteria you don’t see!)bathtub-54587_640

Well, there’s good news! Cleaning your bathroom doesn’t have to be a big expensive chore anymore. You can easily deep clean your whole bathroom, with common items already found in your home. You’ll love how these time and money saving tips transform your dirty old bathroom, into one of the cleanest rooms in your home.

  1. Floss Away Grime

Doesn’t it seem that no matter how hard you scrub around your faucet; you can never get rid of all that grime collected around the base? The answer is to stop scrubbing and start flossing. That’s right, simple dental floss is the key to ridding yourself of unsightly grime. Simply take a long piece of floss, wrap it around the base of your faucet and floss away! Once you’ve completed your flossing you just have to wipe away the loosened grime from around your faucet.

2. The Lemon Trick

Remove old water stains from the chrome in your shower, by gently scrubbing them with a lemon. Your faucets will look like brand new!

3. Hassle Free Exhaust Fan Cleaning

Now the exhaust fan may not be high on your cleaning checklist, but a clean exhaust fan means there is less dust and debris floating around, which will improve your air quality. Additionally, a clean fan will perform more efficiently and you’ll notice the difference, once you’ve cleaned your exhaust fan.

I’m sure the idea of cleaning that old, dirty exhaust fan sounds like a lot of fun to you, but it truly is a lot easier than you might think. All you need is a can of compressed air, the kind you use to clean your keyboard. Tilt the can up toward the exhaust fan and blow away all of the dirt. Just be sure to stand back, so you don’t a get a face full of falling debris.

  1. Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush

Another item you might be forgetting to clean is your toothbrush. Your toothbrush is probably one of the dirtiest items in your bathroom. Each time you brush your teeth, you’re adding to the bacteria, growing on your brush.black-88037_640

Furthermore, if you’re leaving your brush next to your sink and you’re not using some kind of toothbrush cover, you’re adding, even more, germs and bacteria to your brush. Each time you flush the toilet; germs and airborne particles are released into the air and will often land right on your toothbrush.

So as you can see, it’s very important to clean your toothbrush. The easiest way to clean your brush is too dip it in mouthwash; mouthwash is designed to remove germs and bacteria. Additionally, consider investing in a toothbrush cover or storing your brush somewhere besides next to your sink, to protect it from airborne particles.

  1. The Other Brush

Now that you’ve taken care of your toothbrush, it’s time to focus your attention on a different kind of brush. It’s no surprise that your toilet brush is crawling with germs, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Simply pour a little all-purpose cleaner over the brush, while it’s in the holder and store the brush until you need it again.

  1. Ditch Your Traditional Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Toilet bowl cleaners never seem to get your bowl clean enough. So, ditch the cleaner and head to your fridge! Coca-Cola works like sparkling magic on your bowl, and it’s a lot cheaper than most toilet cleaners.

7. DIY Showespray-316524_640r Cleaner

Speaking of ditching traditional cleaners, let’s go ahead and toss out that toxic smelling bathroom cleaner. Instead, try making your own cleaner by adding equal parts dish soap and white vinegar in a spray bottle. This stuff works and smells better than the bathroom cleaners you’re using too.

  1. Unclog Your Drain Effortlessly

If your drain is clogged you can pour half a box of baking soda and ½ a cup of vinegar down the drain, use a drain stop or rag to plug the drain and keep the mixture from overflowing the drain, wait 30-45 minutes and pour boiling water down the drain. This mixture works better than chemicals! You can repeat this process 2-3 times if necessary, but if this trick doesn’t work, it might be time to consult a professional.

Try these eight simple and cheap cleaning tips and watch your bathroom transform before your eyes.

Your Sinus Headaches May Not Be Caused By Allergies…

Did you know that headaches can be caused by poor indoor air quality?

When we get headaches, that we often contribute to seasonal allergies, we don’t think that they could be caused by our own homes or the buildings in which we work; however, more often than not, environmental causes may be 4867472163_422821ed85the culprit for our achy heads – including poor indoor air quality. Having good indoor air quality is vital for the maintenance of proper health. According to the statistics presented by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), the pollutant level inside the home is often two to five times higher than what is outside. These pollutants include different types of airborne particles as well as particulate matters such as gases, lung irritants, allergens, toxic chemicals and VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

If you get headaches often, take time to notice if it only happens when you are in a particular room or building.  If so, there are two likely causes: Mold or Clogged Air Ducts. The presence of mold in your home or building may lead to several health issues.  In addition to headaches, recurring mold exposure may produce the following symptoms: decreased attention span, fatigue, respiratory distress, asthma, irritations of eye, nose, throat, and lungs, and redness and rashes, among others.

Young children are particularly vulnerable to the various health risks associated with polluted indoor air, as their lungs are still developing and are smaller in size. They also need to take more breaths in throughout each day, which becomes difficult if the air quality is bad. If a person is experiencing asthma attacks or allergy symptoms, then bad indoor air quality in his or her home might be a probable cause for such symptoms. Poor indoor air quality can be caused by a variety of factors, such as lingering odors, poor ventilation, water damage, new furniture, a new pet or environmental changes such as a recent construction.

If the ductwork in your home or building is clogged, clean air cannot reach the room or rooms it is vented into. When this happens, only stale air and carbon dioxide re-circulates and the lack of 4873976130_97338fc1f2oxygen-rich air will cause headaches. The best way to treat poor indoor air quality is to have your air duct system cleaned and disinfected.

Likewise, If you experience allergic reactions more severely when you are in a certain room, space, or building than you do in others, it is likely caused by the presence of unknown allergens. If you are bothered in a certain area with allergic reactions, it is very important to get indoor air quality testing to rule out the possibility of poor indoor air quality being the cause of your allergies.

Using professional duct cleaning experts, such as those at Tiger Heating & Air Conditioning Services, will ensure that the indoor air that you breathe is healthy.  Schedule an appointment online, or call us today at 1-866-TIGER70. Don’t delay, get headache and allergy relief today!

Earth Day Energy (and money!) Saving Tips

earth-day-vector-03Earth Day is today and we’d like to share some energy saving tips! Heating and cooling your home uses more energy and drains more energy dollars than any other system in your home. Below are just a few of the many, many tips out there to help out the environment, while saving yourself some money too!

1. Change the filters in your current HVAC system. A new air filter can increase the efficiency of your HVAC system by giving it proper airflow. There are several types of permanent air filters available in various efficiencies that can help you filter the air in your home. If you suffer from allergies, asthma, hay fever or other breathing difficulties, there is an air filter that can help you. We can even provide you with the same type of air filter used in hospital operating rooms. 

2. Install a digital setback thermostat. A digital setback thermostat is designed for people with fixed schedules that take them in and out of the home. With it, you can program the temperature to ‘set-back’ when you are not at home. This feature keeps you comfortable when you’re home and saves you money when you’re not by reducing the energy needs to heat and cool your home. We can help you select the prefect thermostat for your home.

3. Save on water-heating bills. Some ways to save on these bills require greater financial investments than others. You may wish to consider the no- or low-cost options before making large purchases. Also allow for circumstances that may be unique to your household when deciding on the appropriate options (e.g., a small-capacity washing machine could meet the needs of a one-person household efficiently).

Although it is not feasible to eliminate water heating in your home, it is possible to substantially reduce water-heating costs without sacrificing comfort and convenience. The tips in this publication can help decrease your costs for heating water.

4. Add additional air returns to your current system. Lack of return air is a very common problem for those systems that were either poorly designed or originally planned for heat only applications. Adding additional returns to your system allows for greater supply air into your home, resulting in better airflow and comfort for your family. The benefits you will receive by taking care of this problem include: quieter operation, better airflow, fewer repairs, longer life of your equipment, lower utility bills and, best of all, greater comfort.

Holiday Plumbing Tips

The holiday season is upon us! It starts with festivities as early as Halloween then the serious preparations begin with Thanksgiving meals, friends and family, house to house; moving on to December when schools go on vacation and we look forward to a longer celebratory time with Hanukkah and Christmas, finally wrapping it up with New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day.

With an additional load on the household, it is best to take a few precautions during the holiday season. With these simple plumbing tips, we can help keep the holidays a time for rejoicing and not plunging!

small_5031946320Garbage disposal – Take the time to run the garbage disposal ahead of time to make sure that it is clear before disposing of more food. Run hot water for about 15 seconds before and after use. Once clear avoid depositing stringy, fibrous or very tough materials down the disposal; for example; potato peels, pumpkin pulp, celery. Instead, set up a waste basket for excess food in easy reach for children to scrape their plates, then simply take the trash out after dinner. You will be glad you did.

Do not pour oils and fats down the drain. Wipe the pans with a paper towel and throw it in the trash. Keep the hot grease safely out of reach from guests and children.

small_5454967607Treat all of your drains with this environmentally friendly mixture: One cup of salt, one cup of baking soda and ¼ cup cream of tartar. Pour the mixture down each of your drains and follow with two cups of boiling water.

When guests bring “six packs” of soda or beer, please cut through the plastic rings so that wildlife do not get caught in them once the trash is out.

With a house full of overnight guests, spread showers out as best you can. Wait at least ten minutes between showers so that the drains have time to clear.

Test your water faucet temperature with a thermometer that it does not exceed 120*, if it does exceed 120* at the faucet, guests are at risk for scalding and the water heater temperature needs to be turned down.

Check shower pressure before guests arrive. If it is weak pour a cup of vinegar into a plastic bag, place it over the shower head, and soak. Use a twist tie to hold it in place overnight. In the morning, remove the bag and use an old toothbrush to gently scrub off the mineral deposits to help restore water flow.

small_321068461Consider using a humidifier. This will add moisture to the house and make you and your guests more comfortable. Humidifiers reduce static electricity and prevent dry noses. The moisture in the air will make the air feel warmer and also save on heating costs.

Run appliances that generate heat at night. During the holiday’s many people tend to run their ovens or extra loads of laundry in the middle of the day. Run these appliances at night when possible.

Remember that Tiger Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning Services has true 24-hour service and we are available day and night, including throughout the holidays, to resolve any mishaps that might occur when you have guests over. Schedule an appointment today by calling 1-866-TIGER70 or visiting us online at www.TrustTiger.com!

Clean Air Leads To A Healthy Home

As a homeowner, you probably give a great deal of attention to how well your furnace and air conditioner operate and keep each room of your home comfortable. But heating and cooling systems do more than raise and lower room temperature; they can also regulate or impact the quality of the air we breathe. Indoor air quality affects our comfort and our health.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor pollution sources that release gases or microscopic particles into the air are the primary causes of indoor air quality problems in homes. Poor ventilation could increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to reduce emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home. High temperature and humidity levels could also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Primary Sources of Indoor Air Quality Problems

HVAC-Air-Quality-SolutionsThere are many sources of indoor air pollution in homes. These include combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wood, and tobacco products, all of which could produce carbon monoxide and other invisible and potentially deadly gases. Carpets, household cleaning products, insulation, and building materials can produce high levels of toxins. Dust, mold, and allergens can easily and invisibly accumulate and spread through the air and throughout your home. Even outdoor sources such as radon and pesticides could potentially get in your home.

Amount of Ventilation

If there is not enough fresh outdoor air entering your home, pollutants could accumulate to levels that can pose health and comfort problems. Newer homes that are designed to minimize the amount of outdoor air that can leak into and out of the home may potentially have higher pollutant levels than older homes that are normally considered “leaky” or “drafty.”

Indoor Pollution and Health Effects

Sometimes the effects of indoor air quality take time to show up. Initial symptoms could include unexplained headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and irritation of eyes, nose and throat. Carbon monoxide poisoning can be debilitating or fatal. Have you changed the batteries in your detector or tested it recently? 

Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Fortunately, homeowners have many options to ensure that the air quality of their homes is healthy and pollutant-free.

Source Control: Eliminate individual sources including smoking, wood or coal burning stoves. Keep cleaning products outside and remove harmful asbestos and insulation products.

Ventilation Improvements: Open your windows and doors. Run the bathroom or kitchen exhaust fans. Operate window or attic fans when weather permits.

Air Cleaners and Filters: There are many add-ons and modifications to your heating and air conditioning system that can be used to filter out contaminants and improve air quality. Changing your filter according to your system’s recommended maintenance schedule can keep your home allergy and pollution-free and can keep your heating and cooling system in fine working order for just a few dollars a year. On the higher end, there are some outstanding filtration systems that can remove up to 98% of all household contaminants.IndoorAirQuality3

The Right Systems and Equipment for Your Home

If you have an older model heating or air conditioning system, chances are that the quality of the air you and your family are breathing is not as good as it could be. After about 10 years of operation, many heaters and air conditioners can turn into breeding grounds for germs, allergens, and mold. Air conditioners and heaters manufactured before the year 2000 produce far more pollutants than today’s cleaner, more efficient models. Today’s heating and air conditioning systems also include advanced temperature and humidity controls and filtration systems to maintain ideal conditions and remove airborne contaminants.

If you’re concerned about the quality of air in your home, contact Tiger Heating and Air Conditioning. Our comfort advisors can perform a FREE In-Home Energy and Comfort Analysis to assess your indoor air quality and determine if your existing heating and cooling system poses any health risks. They can also work with you to design a heating and air conditioning solution that can deliver maximum comfort and optimal air quality.

Tips for Optimum Efficiency of Your HVAC System

Maintaining Your System

With the recent heat wave in the Saint Louis Metro East, I’m sure many of you have been running your air conditioners constantly. Along with thinking, “I thought summer was over with,” you may be concerned about your looming energy bills. The cost of energy seems to be going up all the time. This same cost, associated with keeping the temperatures inside our homes comfortable, has left a lot of us looking for cost effective preventative maintenance for our HVAC system. This kind of care calls for looking after the HVAC system installed in our homes in a systematic and routine manner. Periodic inspection and servicing of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system ensures that the system keeps working proficiently for a long time to come. This not only means that our energy bills remain under control, but also that the expensive HVAC equipment need not be replaced or upgraded so early in the system’s life.

We cannot live without climate control. It is essential to have comfortable temperatures and humidity levels all year round with warm temperatures during winters and cool air during hot summers. This requires both our air conditioning and heating systems to operate in an efficient manner. If you don’t look after your HVAC equipment, you may be required to pay higher energy bills besides paying dearly to get the repairs done. It is only natural for an HVAC system to become less efficient with the passage of time if it is not serviced and maintained periodically. In addition, did you know that your system’s warranty could be voided if regular service is not maintained? There are also very high chances of breakage and damages.

family with tiger ac unitAre you keeping up with the Jones’? If you are paying more than your neighbors in terms of your monthly electric bill it is probably time to consult Tiger Heating and Air Conditioning Services to design a regular maintenance plan for your HVAC equipment. A repair to your HVAC system in the middle of the winter can be very costly. This is where regular maintenance comes handy, as it not only keeps the parts of your HVAC system working efficiently, but also improves the longevity of the HVAC system.

HVAC is an acronym for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. The parts of an HVAC system include fans, blowers, pumps, centrifuges, tubes, ducts, filters, circuit boards, accumulators, blower wheels, compressors, thermostats and so on. It is indeed a complicated system designed to ensure that you and your family members remain comfortable even when there is a scorching sun or biting cold outside. It is not necessary for you to know about each and every part inside your HVAC system, but you can certainly play your part in keeping the system working efficiently with the help of Tiger Heating and Air Conditioning Services.

Buy A Filter Or Be A Filter

Man Changing Furnace FilterDo you feel like you constantly have indoor allergies when at home? It may not be your beloved pet that is causing this. Filters inside the HVAC system are like the lungs in our body. It is vitally important to keep your lungs clean and clear for breathing, just like the filters in your ventilation system. The filters need regular replacement because microorganisms such as dust mites get inside the HVAC system along with dust; these being released into your air stream can cause potential health problems for your family members. If not regularly changed, or in some cases cleaned, the filters in your HVAC system can provide a breeding ground for microorganisms. Changing dirty filters is one easy step you can take for day to day maintenance in your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. At Tiger, we have a wide variety of filters designed to meet your comfort and air quality needs.

Keep The A/C Unit Clean

Is that a freight train or your air conditioner!? Obstructions to the condenser coil (that thing outside that runs when you turn your A/C on) prevents the system from drawing in fresh air. This happens when dead leaves, heavy dust, or any other impurity is drawn inside the condenser coil. In the Midwest, this can happen cyclically: when the farmers are tilling prior to planting, when they are harvesting in the late summer, and when the leaves fall. To clean the condenser all you need to do is turn off the circuit breaker to the AC unit, then wash it with a soap solution and water. Never use water at high pressure to wash the condenser as it can cause irreparable damage to the fins of the condensers. The safest solution, however, is to call your qualified, professional technicians at Tiger to perform these cleaning operations for you.

By maintaining your heating and cooling system, you can save a lot of your hard earned money on energy costs. If you have any questions, or to schedule an appointment, contact Tiger Heating and Air Conditioning Services at 1-866-TIGER70 or visit TrustTiger.com . Remember  that we offer duct cleaning and sanitization, too!

What Size Should Your Air Conditioner Be?

AmanaAirConditionersGroup_600The best size for your home’s air conditioner depends on several things, including:

  • how large your home is and how many windows it has;
  • how much shade is on your home’s windows, walls, and roof;
  • how much insulation is in your home’s ceiling and walls;
  • how much air leaks into your home from the outside; andhow much heat the occupants;
  • appliances in your home generate. 

An air conditioner’s efficiency, performance, durability, and initial cost depend on matching its size to the above factors. Lucky for you, Tiger can determine all of this for you! Have one of our comfort advisors visit your home and we can provide you with several options for home comfort. In most cases, we can even get you set up with a brand new system that same day! Imagine waking up in the morning and your home is sticky and hot, but by the time you go to sleep that evening, your whole family is cooled off and comfortable.
