Memorial Day Propane Delivery and HVAC Services in PA

Memorial Day is right around the corner, and that means it's time to start prepping your lawn and yard for your annual summer-kickoff barbecue. Even though circumstances are different this year because of social distancing and stay-at-home recommendations, that doesn't mean you can't grill up a delicious dinner for your family. In order to help you prepare, we've come up with a list of ideas and steps you can take to get your home and yard ready for a spectacular Memorial Day celebration.

Get Your Home Ready for Memorial Day

Ordering a heating oil or propane delivery is the perfect way to prepare your home for Memorial Day. If the doors are open and closed as you go outside to use your grill and get supplies, you'll need more warmth to keep your home comfortable. Besides, if you're breaking out the barbecue, you'll need a propane cylinder to get it fired up.

Right now fuel prices are at an all-time low. We highly recommend stocking up on fuel oil or propane before the summer. Even if you don't need to turn on the heat again, you'll have plenty of fuel when you need it on the first chilly day of fall. You can order oil right here on our website! Just click "Order Oil" or "Order Propane" above.

Get Your Yard Ready for Summer

During the fall, winter, and spring, lots of debris tends to collect on Pennsylvania residents' lawns. Be sure to pick up sticks, rake stray leaves, and cut the grass so you can have a clear lawn for your family to socialize and congregate on. While you're at it, please make sure your propane tank or oil fill pipe is clear of leaves, cobwebs, and debris. This will make your heating oil or propane deliveries more efficient.

Prep Your HVAC Systems for the Season Ahead

Have you scheduled a furnace, boiler, or air conditioner tune-up this year? We are able to safely provide preventative maintenance with proper social distancing policies and sanitization procedures. Once social distancing ends, schedules will completely fill up with service appointments—schedule yours now so you get an appointment time that works for you, and your HVAC equipment is ready for the next season.

Need to schedule a fuel delivery or tune-up? Contact Deiter Bros. today!

Water Heaters Get an Efficiency Makeover

Ultimate Water Heater Savings in Pennsylvania

In Pennsylvania, lots of home comfort appliances are seasonal—air conditioners get their workout during the summer, while home heating equipment shines during the fall, winter, and spring. But don't forget that there's one appliance you rely on year-round to keep daily life up and running: your water heater.

Many homeowners forget that their water heater is responsible for a variety of effective and enjoyable home comfort amenities, such as showering, bathing, dishwashing, laundry, cooking, and cleaning. How much energy and fuel is your water heater using every day?

High-Efficiency Propane Water Heaters

The HVAC experts we employ have years of experience installing top-of-the-line tankless propane water heaters for our Pennsylvania customers. If you're looking for a reliable, efficient, high-quality water heater for your property, we've got the perfect system for you. Our techs can recommend, quote, size, and install your propane water heater to your complete satisfaction.

Benefits of a New Tankless Propane Water Heater from Deiter Bros.

You'll benefit from a variety of different perks when you upgrade your propane water with the Deiter Bros. HVAC department. Here are a few of our favorite benefits of a high-efficiency tankless upgrade:

·         Endless hot water for your family's household needs

·         Heats water only when needed, conserving propane

·         Compact size saves anywhere from 9-16 square feet of space

·         Possibility of qualifying for incentives and rebates

·         More reliable water heating for an extended system lifespan

·         Savings on propane annually with high efficiency ratings

·         Reduced risk of breakdowns and fewer water heating emergencies

The Risk of Foregoing a Water Heater Replacement

As a year-round appliance, hot water heaters face daily wear and tear. Today's best technology allows hot water heaters to work well for about ten years before their efficiency drops and they face bursting risks. We highly recommend that you schedule a consultation with our experts if your water heater is 10 years or older to protect your property from water damage and your family from stress and discomfort.

What are you waiting for? Contact Deiter Bros. today for a complimentary consultation regarding your high-efficiency tankless water heater installation or replacement!

Home Heating & Comfort Upgrades in PA | Deiter Bros.
Is your home ready for winter in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania? Find out if you need a new boiler, furnace, or other HVAC products.

 

5 Things Your Home Might Need this Winter

The holidays are almost here! And with them comes winter weather like snow, ice, and below-freezing temperatures. Is your home equipped with everything you need to keep your family safe and warm through the coldest months of the year? Use this checklist to evaluate if it’s time to upgrade your heating system or add a new energy-saving product to your home in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania.

 

Energy-Efficient Heating and Home Comfort Products

1.      Home Heating System

How old is your boiler or furnace? If it is 15 years or older, you should seriously consider investing in a new high-efficiency model. You could save up to 30% per year on annual oil or propane heating bills! Plus, new high-efficiency boilers and furnaces require less frequent service calls.

 

2.      Hot Water Heater

You rely on your hot water heater all year long, but especially during the winter. It is essential for daily household chores like laundry, showering, and dishwashing. If your oil or propane hot water heater is outdated, it likely costs a chunk of change to operate. New high-efficiency hot water heating systems deliver more readily available hot water and are much more cost effective than older models.

 

3.      Humidifier

Indoor air quality is a major component of your family’s comfort and health. If the air in your home is too humid, you might notice musty smells and condensation on the inside of your windows. If your home is too dry, you might notice shrinking hardwood floors and chronic health issues like sore throats and dry itchy skin. Either issue can be remedied by humidifier systems.

 

4.      Radiant Heat

Working on a new home building project or an addition to your current living space? Consider radiant floor heating! Radiant floor heating is one of the most popular heating methods for new construction and remodeling. It delivers efficient, event heating throughout your home.

 

5.      Programmable Thermostat

Adding a programmable thermostat to your home is an easy way to manage your energy use. You can set the thermostat to automatically lower the heat while you are out of the house or asleep. This is a great tool to keep energy use and costs low.

 

Contact Deiter Bros. to learn more about heating system and water heater installations, and to ask questions about additional HVAC products that can help improve your home comfort this winter.

Bad Habits for Hot Water Heaters in PA & NJ | Deiter Bros.
How is your Lehigh Valley hot water heater holding up? If it’s less than perfect, click here to see Deiter Bros.’s top tips to keep it running safely.

 

Bad Habits That Harm Your Pennsylvania Home’s Water Heater

Unlike your furnace, boiler, or air conditioner, your hot water heater is a home comfort appliance you rely on throughout the year. Now think about the appliances and fixtures you use every day in your home. How many of them rely on your water heater, and how quickly does it produce the hot water you need? Without an efficient water heater, household activities like dishwashing, showers, and laundry can cause daily frustration. Read these helpful hints to make sure you’re not unintentionally harming your Greater Bethlehem, PA home’s water heater.

Bad Habits to Avoid

1.      Running out of Oil or Propane

Experiencing a fuel runout isn’t ideal for any home comfort appliance. An empty oil tank or propane tank will result in a forced shutdown of your water heater (and furnace or boiler, for that matter) which will put you in a stressful and inconvenient no-heat situation. At Deiter Bros., our experts recommend signing up for automatic fuel delivery or placing fuel orders before your oil or propane tank starts to run low.

2.      Skipping Annual Maintenance

Foregoing your annual water heater tune-up is a surefire way to overlook any small issues before they become large problems. Be sure to contact us to schedule an annual preventative maintenance tune-up, or simply enroll in our water heater maintenance agreement.

3.      Allowing Your Water Heater to Be Inaccessible

PA hot water heaters (both direct and indirect) need space to breathe. Along with being a fire hazard, things piled on and around your water heater will prevent it from getting the air it needs to function properly. Besides, having easy access to your water heater makes it easier to inspect for safety and efficiency.

4.      Letting Your Water Heater Age Significantly

Water heaters last around 10-12 years. After that, their efficiency is significantly compromised and repairs are more frequent, costing you more in fuel bills to get the same amount of hot water you’re used to. If your water heater is starting to get old, consider a high-efficiency upgrade to maximize your home’s safety, comfort, and oil or propane budget.

Want to Protect Your Hot Water Heater?

Contact the expert HVAC service techs at Deiter Bros. today to order propane or oil, schedule a water heater tune-up, enroll in a maintenance agreement, or book an equipment replacement. We’re here for you with the best service in Lehigh Valley.

Air Conditioning Advisory in Lehigh Valley, PA | Deiter Bros.
Pennsylvania and New Jersey residents should know about this air conditioning refrigerant news. Contact Deiter Bros. with questions or for assistance!

 

IMPORTANT LEHIGH VALLEY AIR CONDITIONING INFORMATION

If you live in Pennsylvania or New Jersey and keep cool over the summer with an air conditioner, you need to know about R-22 refrigerant. The USA has enacted an R-22 ban that will take effect in just a few short months. Keep reading to learn more and contact Deiter Bros. if you need any help with an A/C conversion or replacement this summer.

Answers to Your Questions

Q: What is R-22 A/C refrigerant?

A: R-22 is a substance that works within an air conditioner to cool your home. Without refrigerant, air conditioning, refrigeration, and freezing technology would be impossible—and we would still be delivering ice to keep your home cool!

Q: Does my air conditioning system use R-22?

A: Chances are, yes. For decades, R-22 has been the most common refrigerant for air conditioner manufacturers. If you want to confirm, just give Deiter Bros. a call. We’ll be pleased to send out a technician who can easily check for you.

Q: Why is R-22 being banned?

A: The EPA has ruled R-22 as too damaging to the environment, and in particular, the ozone layer. Sales and importation will be prohibited beginning January 2020.

High-Efficiency Air Conditioners

Along with using a modern, clean refrigerant called R-410A, newer air conditioning models are more energy efficient. Check out some benefits of upgrading your air conditioning system this year:

·         Better energy efficiency

·         Savings on electricity bills

Ready to Upgrade? Contact Deiter Bros.!

Ductless Air Conditioning in Lehigh Valley, PA| Deiter Bros.
With cooling and heating functionalities, ductless is an affordable way to cool your house. Contact Deiter Bros. to equip your PA home with a ductless A/C!

 

Why You Need a Ductless Mini-Split A/C

Pennsylvania homeowners in the Greater Lehigh Valley area get the best of both worlds throughout the year—a nice balance of warmth and cold. To accommodate for these varying temperatures, there’s nothing better than a Mitsubishi ductless mini-split air conditioner. This versatile equipment can be used for cooling or heating, depending on the weather and your family’s preference.

Benefits of a Ductless Air Conditioner in PA

Central A/C is nice, but is it really worthwhile to pay to cool your entire home, including the rooms you don’t use very often? Instead, cool the rooms you use the most with zoned heating, a common energy-saving strategy in PA. Here are some perks to this useful equipment:

 

Zoned Cooling Saves You Money

Cooling every room in your house is an expensive luxury. Instead, just air condition the rooms you use the most—for example, your bedrooms, living room, and kitchen. Install them into any and all rooms you want, without wasting money and electricity on areas you don’t use.

 

Whisper-Quiet Operation

This almost-silent appliance is perfect for families who don’t want to be disturbed by annoying sounds in their living areas. The indoor units are quiet, which allows you and your family members to enjoy listening to each other instead of your cooling equipment.

 

Efficient Electric Power

Electricity is well-known for its high efficiency. Since ductless mini-splits run on your home’s electricity, there’s no need to worry about keeping fuel in stock for your unit. Simply turn the A/C on at the temperature you want, kick back, and enjoy total comfort.

 

Sleek Design & Easy Installation

Ductless mini-splits look nice and are simple to install, because they are hooked up to the walls in the rooms you want. One outdoor unit connects to one or more indoor units, making the ductless mini-split exactly what you want it to be: nothing more, nothing less.

 

Mitsubishi’s “Hyper Heat” technology Makes this a Year-Round Tool

Did you know that ductless mini-splits can be used to heat as well as cool? Mitsubishi’s Hyper Heat technology provides efficient heating in temperatures as low as -13!

 

Install your ductless mini-split today! Contact Deiter Bros. for details on financing or installation.

Controlling Your Indoor Air Quality in PA | Deiter Bros.
PA residents looking for quality HVAC service, heating oil & propane delivery, or indoor air quality control can contact Deiter Bros. to book today!

 

How Clean Is the Air in Your Home?

We often hear about pollution and air toxins in our environment, but did you know that the air inside your home can be over ten times more harmful? Our homes and businesses can be a breeding ground and safe haven for airborne bacteria and chemicals, which seriously affect the health of our families. Stick around to learn how to improve the indoor air quality of your home.

Improving Air Quality

Having high-quality indoor air is significant for your family’s comfort and safety. Here are some simple and productive steps you can take to make sure the air in your home is clean and safe.

Install Radon and CO2 Detectors

Homes in 2019 are all equipped with smoke detectors—but have you tested for Radon and do you have a CO2 detector? These invisible chemicals can be toxic to anyone living in your home, and should be monitored at all times. We recommend placing these detectors in accordance with manufacturers recommendations for best results.

Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned

Most homeowners in Pennsylvania have ductwork installed in their homes for either heating, air conditioning, or both. This HVAC luxury can have an unexpected danger, though; mold, pollen, Pet dander, and other allergens can catch in the ductwork, polluting all the air that’s cycled through your home. If you want to have your ductwork inspected or cleaned, contact us right away so we can get you scheduled.

Decorate with Plants

Plants add a homey and comfortable feel to your house, but they also have air-cleaning benefits. EcoWatch.com recommends aloe vera, bamboo, and spider plants to clean the air of chemicals such as carbon monoxide, benzene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde.

Use Rugs to Keep Pollutants Out

Purchasing a thick rug for every entrance to your home can improve your indoor air quality by reducing the amount of chemicals and pollutants that are tracked inside. Traffic from shoes, paws, and bags can bring in an unprecedented amount of germs.

            Bathe Pets Regularly

Dander from pets can accumulate in air vents and ductwork in your home, which is why you should bathe your animals regularly. Dogs can be bathed about once a month, and cats one to two times a year. This will decrease the amount of dander and pet hair that cycles through the air you breathe.

Contact Deiter Bros. for an evaluation of your Pennsylvania home’s indoor air quality today!

Decisions, Decisions...

Are you the sort of person who says, “I may be indecisive, but I’m not sure.”

Making decisions is no laughing matter, and homeowners are faced with a slew of them. Some are smallish, like selecting new towels for the guest bathroom. Some are a little larger, like choosing a new bed for the guest bedroom. And believe it or not, some decisions get even more sizeable than that...
