If you are used to living in Ashburn, 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 All-Star HVAC 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 Virgina 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.
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 Ashburn home.
Our professionals at All-Star HVAC 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 Virgina 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 All-Star HVAC at 703-680-9911. Our professionals would be happy to share the systems and services we offer. Request ductless system service online today.
Are you ready for the colder weather here in Virgina? 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 All-Star HVAC 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 Ashburn 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.
If you are looking for a heating and cooling solution in Virgina, 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 All-Star HVAC 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 electricity when 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 All-Star HVAC is dedicated to ensuring our customers have cleaner indoor air by providing testing and remediation services in Ashburn.
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 Virgina 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 All-Star HVAC at 703-680-9911. 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. One way to minimize or potentially eliminate this situation is to invest in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) maintenance.
Turn to our trained professionals at All-Star HVAC a couple times a year for a complete
inspection, maintenance, and cleaning of your HVAC system for your Ashburn home. Regular HVAC maintenance can result in many benefits for the homeowner including:

When you call our team for HVAC maintenance services, you will receive a comprehensive inspection and tune-up.

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 Virgina.
