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 Virginia 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 Henrico 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.
Synergy Technical Services can work with you to find the air conditioner that fits inside your home and within your budget.
The air ducts hidden behind your walls keep hot and cold air flowing to each of the rooms in your Henrico home. Over time, air ducts can get dusty, moldy, and, in some cases, even begin to leak air. If the air from the vents smells bad, if you see condensation on the ceiling, or if you hear whistling in the walls, you likely have a problem with the ductwork.
Duct cleaning and vent cleaning are sometimes necessary to bring the entire heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system back to peak performance. Neglected systems that rarely get service or filter changes can accumulate mold and debris in the air duct making the home dusty and smelly. When HVAC ductwork comes loose or leaks, conditioned air is released behind the walls, wasting electricity. Older homes in Virginia are notorious for leaking or poorly insulated air ducts.
If your air ducts are not as quiet as they should be or if you are having mold and dust problems in the house, call Synergy Technical Services at 804.608.1050 so we can take a look. Let us work with you to fix the duct problems in your home. Request air duct service online today.
Are you wondering what an air handler is? For most homeowners in Henrico, air handlers may be a bit of a mystery. Although air handlers can be an important part of a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, they are not necessarily commonplace. However, our trained professionals at Synergy Technical Services can help you understand air handlers and how they might fit into your HVAC system.
You may own a furnace or air conditioner and have never set eyes on an air handler, which typically looks a bit like a furnace and sits inside your Virginia home. However, if you use a heat pump to deliver your heating and cooling needs, then you most certainly already have an air handler. Although an air handler performs different functions, one of its main jobs is to circulate the air throughout your home via a blower.
Air handlers, working with heat pumps or some air conditioner systems, offer several advantages over traditional furnaces and air conditioning units. First, air handlers distribute the air more evenly throughout your home, which can increase your comfort. Second, they produce less condensation, which can lead to a safer environment. Third, they are simple to clean, improving the overall indoor air quality of your home. And, finally, they can supplement your heating and cooling as well.
For additional information about air handlers, call Synergy Technical Services at 804.608.1050 . One of our professional team members will be happy to answer any questions and share our product line with you. Request handlers service today..
Installing a new split air conditioner in your Virginia 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 Synergy Technical Services have installed them all over Henrico. If you have a room that needs its own HVAC unit, call us at 804.608.1050. Request ductless system service online today.
Air ducts are an important part of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in your Virginia home. Air ducts carry the air that has been heated by your furnace to warm your family throughout the winter, and they transport cool air from your air conditioner through your house in the heat of the summer.
Keeping your air ducts clean is a priority for our professionals at Synergy Technical Services here in Henrico. Our services include an inspection of your air duct system, equipment that vacuums out the dirt and dust found throughout your air ducts, and a flush and final cleaning as well. Our team will also clean defusers, cooling coils, grills, and registers when we provide duct cleaning services.
A wide variety of debris can be found in your air ducts including rodent droppings, dust and associated dust mites, mold and mildew, and bacteria and viruses. If you have pets, dander can accumulate in your vents. And if you have recently done any remodeling, you may have chemical off-gassing from carpets, paints, and other materials affecting your air quality.
Air duct cleaning services are designed to address all these things that can build up in your ducts. If blockages are significant, you may restrict airflow and make your HVAC system work harder than it has to.
For additional questions about air duct cleaning services, call Synergy Technical Services at 804.608.1050. We are waiting by the phones to help you make the best HVAC decisions for your home. Request duct cleaning service online s today.
From time to time, you may need to hire an electrician to address problems or expansions in your Henrico home. Synergy Technical Services provides professional electricians to add indoor or outdoor lights, security systems, or smart home devices. In addition, we can help install, repair, or upgrade electrical services including generators, wiring, or circuit board panels.
In today’s highly technological world, there are many gadgets, tools, and systems designed to make life easier in your Virginia home. Adding one or two new electronic toys may not have an effect on your electrical system, but when you start installing major entertainment systems, house-wide smart devices, or other such technology, you want to make sure you are not overloading your electrical system.
Our trained electricians can come out and inspect your current wiring and circuit board system, as well as your planned additions to help you scale your system so it can handle the new electrical load. Once you understand your capacity, you can consider items such as generators, outdoor flood lighting, or home security systems.

Whenever you require electrical services, call Synergy Technical Services at 804.608.1050. Our licensed electricians will be happy to evaluate your situation and answer any questions you might have. Request electrical service online today.
You, your family, and your Henrico home depend on your furnace to work each winter. A broken heater in the middle of a Virginia 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.
Synergy Technical Services 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 804.608.1050 to see what options exist for your home. Request furnace service online today.
Do you dream about cuddling up to a cozy wood fire but just can’t justify the cost and the mess? A residential gas fireplace may be just right for you. Gone are the days of weak blue flames that never really fooled anyone.Take a look at what these low-maintenance fireplaces offer you and your family in Virginia.
You can expect a gas fireplace to offer almost all of the same perks a wood-burning fireplace provides with a fraction of the energy and time it takes to run a wood fireplace. While some people will always love specific aspects of a wood-burning unit, the simple truth is many people do not have the time to set up and maintain wood-burning fireplaces anymore.
A gas fireplace, on the other hand, can be turned on and off with a flick of a switch. The chimney will never need sweeping out, nor will you need to split wood to have your cozy atmosphere. Best of all, the newer models highly resemble a wood fireplace.
While you can complete many do-it-yourself (DIY) Henrico home projects yourself, we highly recommend you get professional help even with the simpler gas fireplace kits that are on the market. When you are ready to consider your options and move on a gas fireplace, our professionals at Synergy Technical Services are just a phone call away at 804.608.1050. Request gas fireplace service today.
Like most heat pumps installed in Virginia, 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 Henrico 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 Synergy Technical Services 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 804.608.1050 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.
A recent survey showed higher than average demand for new smart home systems here in Virginia. Instead of using a timer to turn off and on the lights and air conditioning while you are away, home automation allows Henrico homeowners to turn on, not only lights and air conditioning, but music systems, burglar alarms, and even warm up the oven through an app on your smartphone.
Smart home systems allow you to set your home’s temperature while you are away and, with a swipe of the app, your home prepares for your return. The app sees your distance from home and knows exactly when to turn the cooling on, so your home is cool when you arrive without the air conditioning running longer than needed.
You will get a reminder when your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) filters need to be changed, and if something is wrong with your system, one of the home automation devices sends an alert to your phone.
Smart home installations are one of Synergy Technical Services’s most popular service requests. Our customers are wowed by the technology and thrilled with the results. Call us at 804.608.1050 for a home automation survey today. Request home automation service online today.

Our professionals at Synergy Technical Services want to be sure your Virginia home provides a healthy environment for you and your family. Our testing and remediation services can help you check your air quality and improve it.
Poor indoor air quality can result from a host of things including dust, pet dander, smoking, and viruses. In addition, cleaning products, paint, or carpet can release chemicals that can negatively affect indoor air quality.

Our experienced professionals can test the quality of your Henrico indoor air. If they discover potential issues, they may recommend things like cleaning your air ducts, changing your air filters, or installing an air purifier. They can also check for things like deadly carbon monoxide leaks.

You may have had to deal with the unfortunate cold shower or the inability to run your dishwasher or laundry at the time you wanted to do it. The hot water you wanted was simply not there. Today, your options range far and wide to be sure your hot water needs can be met. Two major types of residential HVAC water heater are on the market today: tank and tankless.
Tank water heaters are still the most common, particularly in older homes. These are the type that may have run out of hot water while in use in the past in your Virginia home. Generally, these are heated by electricity, oil, or gas.
On the other hand, tankless water heaters heat up water exactly when you want it, on demand, regardless of how much or how little you need. You are also freed from the necessity of continually heating a large tank of water in your Henrico home. In addition to using traditional energy means to fuel these heaters, they can also utilize other alternative sources of energy such as geothermal, solar, and more.

Zone Control Systems
Have you ever envisioned imaginary dollar bills just floating out of your home when you think about cooling or heating rooms not in use? This is actually what figuratively happens when there are specific parts of your Henrico home you don not use much but still heat and cool. Ideally, the rooms you are currently using are comfortable while the rest of your home is conserving energy. Up until recently, that was a difficult goal to achieve.
However, zone control systems are available today that allow you to do a better job of customizing your temperatures. Part of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, a zone control system allows you to operate several thermostats, each controlling the temperature of a different zone of your home. A zone control system automatically opens and closes the appropriate dampers to direct heating or cooling just where you want it in your Virginia home.
Our team at Synergy Technical Services can provide more details and share the cost savings you can expect by installing a zone control system. Our trained professionals are well-versed in how to properly install, repair, and maintain a zone control system so it works effectively with your current HVAC system.
