Roach Energy is a full HVAC services provider. HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, and it encompasses all the systems that keep your home cool and the summer and warm in the winter.
But what equipment and services are included under the umbrella of HVAC systems? Let’s break down what each part of HVAC means (not necessarily in the order of the acronym) and how we help households in Berkeley, Morgan, Jefferson, and Washington counties with them.
During the most frigid months in the Eastern Panhandle region, homes and businesses alike count on Roach Energy to stay warm. We deliver top-quality heating oil and propane to power heating equipment. We also install, maintain and repair systems from top manufacturers like Trane, Carrier, Buderus, Luxaire, and Utica Boilers.
Furnaces keep you warm by heating air and blowing it through the ductwork into your living areas. These systems are also called forced air systems. The ducts they use can also be used for central air conditioning. Furnaces can usually warm your house quickly since their start-up time is minimal.
Boiler systems don’t use ductwork. Instead, they work with your home’s plumbing. A boiler heats water in a tank, then circulates either steam or hot water through your pipes and into radiators or radiant flooring systems. Boilers can be pricier to install and take longer to heat your home, but the heat they produce is exceptionally comfortable.
West Virginia and Maryland experience extreme heat as well as frosty cold. It’s no wonder that customers count on us for cooling solutions, which our world-class HVAC team offers.
Central A/C uses the ductwork in your home and an outdoor condenser to deliver cool air. You can control cooling operations using your home’s thermostat. At Roach Energy, we install and service central air conditioning systems from Carrier, Trane, and Luxaire.
If your home doesn’t have ducts, you aren’t stuck using ineffective window A/C units. Ductless mini-splits provide powerful, zoned cooling — you can keep different areas of your home at different temperatures — as well as supplemental heat. They consist of an outdoor condenser and an indoor air handler, which connect via a thin tube through your wall.
Mini-split systems are pricier to install than central A/C, but they’re generally cheaper to operate and have a longer lifespan!
If you have ductwork in your home, it might carry more than hot and cool air. Ducts can circulate dust, viruses, mold, germs, bacteria, and other toxins. But Roach Energy has indoor air quality (IAQ) solutions to keep the air in your home safe to breathe. These IAQ fixes include:
These products can protect you from dry and itchy skin, exacerbated allergies, asthma attacks, colds, and various other illnesses.
