When the weather heats up and you turn on the air conditioning, do you ever say “just last one more summer” to yourself? A lot of people do.
We talk to many homeowners in with old and worn-out heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, hoping their air conditioning unit can limp through one more season. You do not need that kind of stress, and you do not need to come home here in on the hottest day to find the air conditioner has finally died.
Today’s air conditioning units are more affordable than ever, and with new high-efficiency compressor technology, you will see an immediate drop in your electric bill with a new system. Modern air conditioning units are smaller, more efficient, and run quieter than those made just a few years ago. There is no better time to replace an aging air conditioning unit.

If you ask homeowners and small business owners in what kind of heat they prefer, many will tell you radiant or baseboard heat is their preference. These heating systems use a boiler to move hot water through a piping loop to provide heat throughout the building.
Heating systems on central boilers are known for consistent heat without the dry, super-hot feel of forced-air units. At Comfort Now by Bob McAllister, many of our service customers use boilers for heating and hot water, and we have helped them take the next step in boiler technology.
Ultra-efficient condensing boilers are replacing standard oil furnaces and water boilers because of their fast installation and +95% efficiency. Condensing boilers use PVC pipe for venting through the side of the house instead of running an expensive flue pipe up through the roof. The price of condensing boilers has dropped significantly and now may be the best time to consider a replacement to your conventional boiler.
Call our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) team at 609-400-1005 with any questions you may have about boilers. Together let us see if an upgraded central boiler system can keep you warm and reduce your energy bills. Request boiler service online today.
Installing a new split air conditioner in your home can be costly, labor intensive, and very intrusive. It is one thing to replace an older split air conditioning unit; it’s quite another to install one where there is no place to mount the air handler or run ductwork. But there is a way to add heating and cooling to a room without the mess.
Ductless systems, or mini splits, are small-capacity units that mount on the wall instead of in a closet or above the ceiling. A ductless heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system needs no ductwork, as the air moves through the unit on the wall eliminating the need to tear apart walls to install the unit.
Homeowners have expressed concerns over rising utility rates, but ductless mini splits are some of the most efficient heating and cooling units on the market, reaching Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) ratings for cooling well above 20. You will see your power bills drop right away once your ductless unit is installed.
Ductless systems can fit almost anywhere and we at Comfort Now by Bob McAllister have installed them all over . If you have a room that needs its own HVAC unit, call us at 609-400-1005. Request ductless system service online today.
You, your family, and your home depend on your furnace to work each winter. A broken heater in the middle of a winter means you will go to a hotel for a night. While you are away, your home is at risk of warped floors and burst pipes as temperatures dip to dangerous levels. Although you can’t guarantee your furnace will never break, there are ways to reduce the risk.
Every heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, including your furnace, should get regular maintenance including filter changes, heat exchanger inspections, and seasonal tune-ups. If the unit is not heating like it should, a furnace repair should never be delayed.
Old, cracked gas burners can leak combustion gasses into your home, putting everyone at risk of illness or death. When the furnace is past its useful life, a variety of standard to high-efficiency heaters are available to get you warm and your house comfortable again.
Comfort Now by Bob McAllister is known throughout the area for furnace replacements, and our customers report reduced utility bills and more comfortable homes after a tune-up or new installation. Give us a call at 609-400-1005 to see what options exist for your home. Request furnace service online today.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
homeowners seeking the highest efficiency heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are exploring geothermal heat pump installations. Most heating and air conditioning units reject or absorb heat from the atmosphere through a condensing unit, the outdoor part of the air conditioning system. Geothermal heating systems reject and absorb heat from the ground through underground pipes instead of through the air.
Because the outside air temperatures change throughout the year, a standard heat pump’s ability to reject heat to the air also changes. Since a geothermal system rejects heat to the ground and not the air, the unit sees consistent ground temperatures all year long.
The steady ground temperature gives geothermal heat pumps a much higher operating efficiency compared to a unit that rejects heat to the air. Geothermal heating units are also nearly silent as there is no condenser fan. Comfort Now by Bob McAllister customers who have had trouble with corrosion of their condensing units often opt for geothermal heating and cooling because there is no outdoor unit to corrode.
Like most heat pumps installed in , yours probably runs nonstop all year cooling your home in the summer and heating it in the winter. We expect our heat pump systems to keep us comfortable no matter what the weather.
When the equipment fails, it is a major emergency. Unfortunately, most homeowners have high expectations of their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) heat pump, but rarely do anything to make sure the unit is tuned up and running efficiently.
That is where Comfort Now by Bob McAllister comes in. We love keeping heat pumps running strong including the newer, high-efficiency mini split heat pumps. We offer affordable heat pump maintenance agreement plan services like filter changes and seasonal tune-ups.
During our service visits, we thoroughly check each heat pump system component for signs of wear and advise if anything needs replacing, before the part fails and the entire heat pump shuts down.
Call 609-400-1005 to speak to one of our experienced and certified team members. We are always happy to come out for a repair, routine service, or to help you select a new heat pump for your home or small business. Request heat pump service online today.

Conventional heating systems such as radiators, baseboard heating, and furnaces consume a great deal of energy in . One reason is because these units need to be heated to a high temperature in order for the surrounding air to be brought to a comfortable temperature. For example, a radiator often needs to reach 150 degrees to provide room temperature heat.
Comfort Now by Bob McAllister now offers a more energy-efficient alternative: radiant floor heating. In this system, an electric-based or water-based network is installed under your home’s flooring. This system only needs to be heated to about 84 degrees to provide average heat to your living space.
Radiant floor heating is easy to run, simple to maintain, and eliminates much of the traditional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment typically needed in your home. This frees up space and gives you flexibility for innovative interior design.
Ideally, radiant floor heating is installed when you build a new home. If you are retrofitting a current home, you may incur significant installation costs as well as inconvenience as your flooring will need to be lifted up and perhaps replaced in order for this heating system to be added. Radiant floor heating will also increase the level of your home’s flooring.
