Matt Polsinello - Monday, May 11, 2015

You’ve made it through the winter, and what a brutally cold winter it was. Now it’s time to think about turning off the heat and turning on your air conditioning. Maybe you have an older home and are still operating with wall units because you don’t think central air in an option for you. Wrong.

Whether you’ve purchased an older home, or inherited a family property, don’t sell yourself short when it comes to having central air installed in your home.

In fact, there are options when it comes to putting air conditioning in your home. You may want air conditioning that works with the duct work already installed in your home, a separate system, or a room to room solution. We offer a free in-home air conditioning consultation which will determine exactly what you’ll need for your home. Once we establish the best course of action for your home, and you decide to have the comfort of AC installed; our installation team will be ready to go to work.

Is Your Central AC Ready for Summer?

Matt Polsinello - Tuesday, March 24, 2015


It’s been several months since you’ve used your central air conditioning unit. Before you turn it on to escape the heat during the warm months, you’re going to want to make sure that everything is in working order. We found some great tips from Popular Mechanics that will help.

It’s recommended to have your HVAC system checked at least once a year to assure that it is performing to its full ability. Some routine maintenance you can do yourself, but be sure to contact a professional for the more intricate parts of the system and of course if you detect any problems.

One of the first things you can check is the filter. You’ll find these at the blower unit. A dirty filter can affect the air flow, so you’ll want to make sure it’s nice and clean to maximize how much air the unit is pumping through your home.

You’ll also want inspect the duct work. Make sure there are no leaks that would hurt your unit’s productivity. While inspecting the ducts inspect for mold growing in there. This can be a health hazard for your whole family. If you do find mold, contact a professional to make sure it is removed properly and safely.

The final step in making sure your central AC is working properly is to inspect the outside unit. Make sure the unit is unobstructed by removing any winter covering before you turn on the switch and clear any leaves or debris from around the unit as well.

You may want to contact a professional to give your HVAC system a full inspection. Contact Polsinello Fuels, a leader in heating and cooling, and ask about our spring tune up.


Some Ways Your Fuel Consumption Will Change

Matt Polsinello - Monday, March 16, 2015

Life is full of changes and surprises. You never know what might be coming along that will affect your everyday life. One of the things that will you will notice when a life change happens is energy consumption. Depending on the situation it could be more, or it could be less.

So what exactly could lead to a change in how you’re using heating oil or fuel? There are a few examples:

  • You stop or start using a wood or pellet stove
  • Have a baby
  • Children move out
  • In-laws move in

If you notice that you are either using more or less heating oil or propane it is very important that you let us know. If you’re using less than you could decrease your overall cost. If you’re using more you will want to let us know so that you don’t run out, especially during the winter. The last thing you would want to happen is to run out of hot water in the shower, or wake up to a cold house in the middle of January.

You may not realize you are using more or less, but if any of these life events happen or have happened to you, contact Polisello today.
