A water heater seems like such a simple appliance, but there are many different types to consider when thinking about a water heater replacement. Mode Comfort & Air Quality has many years of experience in water heater repair and installation on all makes and models, but we do have certain brands we recommend. While tankless water heaters offer many great benefits, sometimes basic is just better, and it is almost always more affordable! If you already have a traditional water heater and are looking for the most cost-effective option for a water heater replacement, a tank system may be the way to go.
Purchasing an air conditioner is a big investment and choosing the contractor to do it right is a big decision. Choosing the right unit for your AC installation will impact your comfort and home energy expenses for years to come. Hiring a knowledgeable HVAC contractor is also key; doing a little research could save you money, time, and headaches down the road. Mode's excellent reviews are readily available, and we are happy to provide references upon request. Air conditioners vary in style and type.
Oil furnaces have been providing dependable heat for a long time. They are messier and dirtier than gas models. Oil furnaces can also come with some additional costs, as oil prices fluctuate wildly and these units have to be cleaned yearly to operate safely. Gas furnaces can operate using propane or natural gas. Both options are cleaner than oil and do not have to be cleaned as often. Another benefit to gas furnaces is that many furnace service calls are very simple in nature. On occasion, a technician may even be able to talk you through the furnace repair over the phone.
A boiler is essentially any appliance that uses water to heat a home (and sometimes provide domestic hot water), as opposed to a furnace, which uses heated air to heat a space. Condensing boilers are high-efficiency boilers fueled by natural gas or liquid propane. Condensing boilers are reliable with low operating costs. Condensing boilers are so named because they have a secondary heat exchanger. As the gasses pass through the secondary exchanger, additional heat is removed from the exhaust gas.
In the market to replace your current heat pump? Mode Comfort & Air Quality's customer service, attention to detail, and HVAC expertise is hard to beat. What's more, we truly stand behind our work. Very simply, a heat pump is both a heating and cooling system. It works by taking heat from the air and pumping it into another location (hence the name "heat pump"), either inside our outside of your home. During warm weather (and in central Virginia, we know this can be anywhere from March to October), your heat pump removes heat from inside and pumps it outside, which cools your home.
Great customer service! Flexible hours for working folks! Been using them for several years now!
Mode Comfort wins. G. Todd Price promptly responded to my call. He listened to my problem and told me it was an easy fix. He explained how I could fix it myself if I wanted. I did it myself and 20 minutes later my AC was working. That is the kindness this world needs. Call them.
Todd was incredibly helpful, quick to respond, and professional. Couldn't have asked for better service. Highly recommended!
