If you are used to living in Bluffton, you know how brutal the summer heat can be. After an afternoon of outdoor work or play, you will be ready to relax in a nice, cool home. A reliable air conditioner may quickly become the most important appliance in your house during those longest days of the year.
Rely on Knueve & Sons to keep you and your family cool throughout the season. Our team of professionals can help match your home’s cooling needs with top-quality air conditioning systems if you are in the market for a new one. Current models provide excellent cooling and improved energy efficiency.
If you are happy with your current air conditioning system, our trained professionals can come out to inspect, tune up, and clean your system before the heat really hits. On the other hand, if you require repair services, give us a call, and we will be happy to send out a professional to fix your air conditioner as quickly as possible.
Not only does your air conditioner keep you and your family comfortably cool in the Ohio dog days of summer, but it will also dehumidify your indoor air. Keeping your home at the correct humidity level can reduce common allergens such as mold and mildew, protect your electronics and appliances from humidity damage, and improve your overall indoor air quality.
Having reliable commercial heating and cooling is important to a company’s bottom line. It takes a special service provider to understand the unique needs of a commercial operation. Our professionals at Knueve & Sons will listen carefully to your organization’s particular situation and make recommendations that fit your business, time frame, and budget.
Whether you’re looking for a heating solution for a small, medium, or large business, our team of professionals is ready to help. We can work with just about any industry, building configuration, and budget constraints to provide reliable, consistent heat in the winter months.
Our team has experience with Bluffton commercial furnaces and boilers as well as ducted and ductless heat pumps. For large organizations, we can install a rooftop unit (RTU), which often manages heating, cooling, and ventilation more efficiently.
When it comes to keeping your employees, customers, and equipment cool in the heat of the summer, you want a system that’s properly scaled and reliable to meet your Ohio cooling needs. Our trained technicians are well-versed in installing and servicing commercial air conditioners, chillers, heat pumps, and cooling towers as well as with a variety of other cooling equipment you might require.

During these checkups, we can often spot potential problems and make needed repairs before your commercial system fails. That saves you time and money as well as the inconvenience of having a broken heating or cooling system during business hours. Check out our maintenance plans that are customized to serve your particular commercial business’s unique needs. Request commercial service online today.
Most homes in Ohio are either heated with a furnace or a boiler. If you happen to have a boiler in your Bluffton home, it will be either condensing or noncondensing. Condensing boilers are more energy efficient as they concentrate the hot water vapor to heat your home while, at the same time, using waste energy to begin warming up the colder water coming into the boiler.
Our professionals at Knueve & Sons can help you select a residential boiler that is energy efficient and properly sized for your home if you are considering investing in a new boilers system. It’s important to have the right-sized boiler because one that is too small will not provide enough heat and one that is too large will waste energy.
Although our team can provide boiler repair and maintenance, if you have a boiler that’s more than a decade old, it may be time to invest in a new one. Older boilers tend to be only 50 to 70 percent efficient while the newest boilers can exceed 90 percent efficiency, saving you money and helping the environment.
Ready to talk more about boilers? Call Knueve & Sons at 419-532-3699 . Our trained professionals will be happy to provide more information or answer any questions. Request boiler service online today.
Have you ever heard of a ductless heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system? Ductless systems provide heating and cooling without forcing air through a network of air ducts in your Bluffton home.
Our professionals at Knueve & Sons suggest considering a ductless system if you are adding a room or providing customized climate control to a particular space in your home. For example, a ductless system would work great in a Ohio sunroom, man cave, bonus room, or home office. They are also a possible solution for keeping one bedroom extra warm for an elderly family member or as supplemental heating or cooling for a rarely used guest room.
One advantage of a ductless system is it requires a very small hole to be drilled through a wall, which makes installation a breeze and energy loss close to nonexistent. In addition, ductless systems are typically quieter and can reduce your energy bills over time if you are losing energy through a duct system.
Though they can be more expensive initially to purchase, in short time you save enough in energy costs to make the difference back. These are perfect if your home needs a system with a small footprint. We can install them most anywhere in your home.
If you are ready to learn more about ductless systems, call Knueve & Sons at 419-532-3699. Our professionals would be happy to share the systems and services we offer. Request ductless system service online today.
One area you may not think about a great deal in your Bluffton home is your air ducts. This network of ducts behind the walls of your home are responsible for carrying heated and cooled air to every room of your house. The professionals at Knueve & Sons want to help you keep these air ducts clean.
Our trained technicians use special tools to loosen dirt in your air ducts and them remove all the debris. In addition, registers, grills, defusers, heat exchangers, and cooling coils are also cleaned with most duct cleaning services.
Many particulates from daily living end up in your Ohio home’s indoor air and can be circulated through your home or settle in your air duct system. Dead skin cells, dust mites, viruses, bacteria, mold spores, smoke, insects, rodent droppings, pet dander, and chemical particulates are commonly found in most homes.
Duct cleaning services, as part of a complete heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) maintenance routine, can help remove these items from your air ducts. In addition, changing your air filters regularly can also help in improving your indoor air quality. If dirt builds up throughout your HVAC system, including your air ducts, it may make your system work harder, which can increase your costs and decrease the life span of your equipment.
If you’re ready to tackle the dirt in your air ducts, call Knueve & Sons at 419-532-3699. Our professionals want to help you keep your home and air ducts clean. Request duct cleaning service online s today.
Are you ready for the colder weather here in Ohio? Once the days grow short and the nights stretch long, you will want to crank up the heat in your home to make it nice and cozy. A wide range of furnaces from Knueve & Sons can help you accomplish that goal. Whether you are purchasing a new furnace or replacing an old one, there are many factors you should consider before making your decision.
One of the first things you want to consider is what size furnace your Bluffton home requires. If you select a furnace that is too small, you will have inadequate heat in the coldest days of winter. On the other hand, if you select a furnace that is too large, you will be paying for more heat than you actually need.
Unfortunately, selecting the right size of furnace is a little trickier than simply looking at square footage of your home. Our heating experts will take into account the climate, size, construction, and layout of your home in order to recommend the best furnace size.
In addition, be sure to consider the cost of various energy sources and the energy ratings of furnaces. Certain fuels will be less or more expensive at any given time and will impact the environment differently as well. One thing you can be certain of is that a new furnace will be more efficient than an old one.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
Many of us are used to the traditional ways of heating and cooling our homes, but more options exist for the savvy shopper. Residential geothermal heat pumps have been around for a long time, but no one has been talking about them. Yet, investing in geothermal heating and cooling can be one of the smartest decisions you will make in Bluffton.
In a nutshell, geothermal systems exchange heat with the earth itself through a ground heat exchanger. While above ground temperatures are fluctuating, temperatures remain fairly steady and pleasant a few feet down, providing an alternative source of reliable heating and cooling. Depending on the model, a geothermal pump may also provide hot water.
While the initial costs of setting up a geothermal heating system may seem intimidating and higher than other alternatives, geothermal heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems cost much less to run than any other common HVAC system.
In many cases, you can expect to recoup your investment in two to 10 years. You may also qualify for government assistance depending on the programs available in your area. Be sure to consult with professionals in advance to make sure that you take advantage of these opportunities.

Our professionals at Knueve & Sons are thoroughly equipped to set up and install geothermal heat pumps according to your needs—give us a call at 419-532-3699.

If you are looking for a heating and cooling solution in Ohio, you may want to consider a heat pump. Heat pumps simply move warmer air from outside to inside in the winter and from inside to outside in the summer, providing a comfortable indoor temperature.
Since heat pumps do not actually create their own heat, they are more efficient and cost effective than conventional furnaces and air conditioning systems. In fact, heat pumps may provide the same heating and cooling options at one-quarter the cost.
Our professionals at Knueve & Sons can help you determine whether a heat pump might be right for you. In the past, heat pumps tended to work best in moderate climates; however, new technology has made heat pumps viable in colder climates today as well.
The air-source heat pump is most commonly available, and it moves the heat between your home and outside. Air-source heat pumps require less electricitywhen compared with baseboard units and furnaces. Some high-efficiency models can also provide better dehumidification capabilities than conventional air conditioners.
Ductless heat pumps, or mini splits, are an alternative type of heat pump for homes without ductwork. Our professionals can talk with you about these if you are interested.
Indoor Air Quality
Everyone needs a breath of fresh air from time to time. In today’s world of super efficient, well-insulated buildings, there may be even a greater need. Although many advantages of modern construction exist, potentially poor indoor air quality can be one disadvantage. Our team at Knueve & Sons is dedicated to ensuring our customers have cleaner indoor air by providing testing and remediation services in Bluffton.
Where do indoor air quality problems originate? The issue can vary from home to home, but smoking, pets, dust mites, and chemicals released from cleaning products or new construction can all contribute to poor indoor air quality.
Although many of us live with these and other irritants around us each day, long-term exposure may result in physical discomfort or significant health problems. Some Ohio homeowners may experience symptoms including fatigue, allergies and asthma, flu-like systems, or respiratory issues. Certain air pollutants such as carbon monoxide from faulty heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can cause serious consequences or even death.
Our trained professionals can provide a thorough testing of your indoor air quality as well as suggest the best remediation actions for your home. Simple things like air filters, cleaning air ducts, or installing air purification systems may help improve your air quality a great deal.
If you are ready to check your indoor air quality, call Knueve & Sons at 419-532-3699. Our professionals can provide all the needed information for you to make a wise decision. Request indoor air quality service online today.
It’s always easier to boost a broken furnace or air conditioner to the top of your priority list, but it can be a stressful scenario to find yourself in, especially during extreme weather.

Turn to our trained professionals at Knueve & Sons a couple times a year for a complete
inspection, maintenance, and cleaning of your HVAC system for your Bluffton home. Regular HVAC maintenance can result in many benefits for the homeowner including:

We will tighten electrical connections, lubricate appropriate parts, and inspect pressure where needed as well.
Schedule regular HVAC maintenance before the summer heat strikes to ensure your air conditioner is ready for the hot weather, as well as before your furnace system should be getting ready to take on the coming winter in Ohio.
Homeownership comes with its advantages and its challenges. One of the most stressful things about owning a Bluffton home is dealing with plumbing problems. When problems inevitably arise, you could have a minor inconvenience or a major emergency on your hands.

If you are building a new Ohio home or planning an addition to your current one, you may need to install a new plumbing system and fixtures. It is important to understand the intricacies of installing plumbing properly in order to create an efficient and reliable system. If you are adding to your current system, you will want to be sure your new plumbing is correctly integrated into your system.
Even if your plumbing system is functioning well, it is always a smart idea to have a professional perform a regular inspection to check for leaks, sewer line issues, and more. Routine maintenance can help reduce the likelihood of major problems later.
