It’s known as the “silent killer,” and with good reason. You can’t see it, smell it or taste it. This silent killer is Carbon Monoxide and it can cause harm to your family without you even knowing! The good news is you can protect your family by following these easy tips from your HVAC professionals at Mid-State Heating and Cooling in Monmouth County.
Carbon monoxide is created when fossil fuels are burned. These fossil fuels come from burning gas, coal, wood or oil. If you stop to think about it, most appliances and systems in your home burn this kind of gas. While most of these appliances and systems are made to produce minimal levels of carbon monoxide, systems can malfunction and it’s important to be prepared with the facts and a plan.
Since you can’t see carbon monoxide, you’ll need to recognize the symptoms caused by a leak in your home. If you or your family members are suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning, you might see flu-like symptoms including:
- Sore throats
- Rapid heart beats
- Memory loss
- Difficulty thinking
- Sensitivity to light, smell or sound.
These symptoms are so similar to the flu that 2,000 people of the 12,000 each year who experience flu-like symptoms are actually suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning!
Luckily, it is easy to protect your family from problems caused by carbon monoxide poisoning by following these tips:
- Have your HVAC contractor in Tinton Falls check your heating equipment before you turn on your heat this fall
- Install carbon monoxide detectors within 10 feet of each bedroom in your home
- Never operate anything with an engine in your home or garage, or near open windows.

Can you believe Labor Day came and went already? It’s that time of the year again – the kids are going back to school, and it’s time for fall home projects and to get your home ready for the cooler seasons. One thing you’ll have to be doing soon is shutting down the central air conditioning or packing up your window units in preparation for the cooler weather. At Mid-State Heating and Cooling, it’s a busy time of the year for us as we’re helping homeowners with air conditioning maintenance in Monmouth Count and duct cleaning in Monmouth County.
- Do an outside scan of your air compressor and make sure that nothing looks like it needs repair or replacement on your unit. You also want to make sure that it is free of debris before covering the unit.
- If you have a window unit, be sure to clean the filer in the unit before taking it out of the window. Store the unit in a box or with a cover so that it doesn’t suffer damage in the attic or garage over the winter.
- Schedule a duct cleaning if you have central air, so that when it’s time to turn the heat on a couple of months, you’re not blowing dust and allergens around your home (which are harder to get of in the winter when you can’t open the windows to air out your home.) Schedule your duct cleaning now to get the most convenient appointment for your schedule as they do fill up in the next couple of months.
To schedule your cleaning, or any air conditioning maintenance you might need before shutting down, give Mid-State a call at 1 (800) 536-7199. “Like” us on Facebook for more tips, specials and more!

Like many other mechanical items that are in your home, hot water heaters have undergone major changes throughout the past several years. Yes you can still purchase a natural draft water heater that vents in your standard chimney but the technology changes have enabled contractors to eliminate these large storage tanks and have a small device hang on the wall of your basement, utility room or garage in place of it. Not only is the water heater small, but extremely powerful and efficient, up to 96% efficient versus your 54% efficient standard tank! Below are some of the manufacturers that we stock and a brief description of their offerings.
The Navien on demand water heater is one of the most efficient water heaters on the market today. The unit features a annual fuel utilization efficiency of 95% for natural gas and 97% for propane! This unit is unlike other “tankless” or on demand units in the sense that it can be vented in schedule 40 PVC and vented up to 100 feet away from it’s location! This makes this unit very versitile when it comes to installation. This is our water heater of choice for the Home Performance with Energy Star program!
Rinnai is one of the leaders in tankless technology. Rinnai has over 30 million tankless water heater installations worldwide. Rinnai has been efficiently heating water since 1964, and selling their heating appliances in the United States since 1974. Rinnai is the world’s largest gas appliance manufacturer.
Rheem Manufacturing Company was established in the mid-1920s when brothers Richard and Donald Rheem acquired a galvanizing plant in San Francisco, California. In the 1930′s, Rheem began manufacturing water heaters, and by 1936 had coast to coast distribution. During the 1940s and 1950s, the company increased its product line to include space heating units for homes, oil furnaces and air conditioners.
In 1959, Rheem acquired Ruud Manufacturing Company, a pioneer in the water heating industry with a well-regarded product line and a distribution network throughout North America. In subsequent years, Rheem entered the heating and air conditioning market and expanded in the late 1960′s and 1970′s with the rapid growth of the central air conditioning industry. In 1985, the company acquired Raypak, a leading producer of copper tube boilers used for swimming pool heating and commercial hot water supply and hydronic heating

A. O. Smith produced its first residential water heater in 1939, establishing a tradition of innovation that continues to this day. In 1953, A. O. Smith shipped its first commercial water heater equipped with a “glass-lined” tank, which remains the industry standard for protecting steel from the corrosive effects of water.
A. O. Smith Water Products Company is headquartered in Ashland City, Tennessee, home of the world’s largest water heater factory. The A. O. Smith network includes five manufacturing facilities in North America, plus plants in Nanjing, China and Veldhoven, The Netherlands.

- Generally, 78 degrees is a perfect temperature for your air conditioning unit. This might differ a few degrees based on your personal preference, but keeping it as close to this temperature as possible will keep you comfortable and keep costs down.
- Change your air filter often to ensure efficiency and help to keep the air clean.
- A higher efficiency system will save you money on your energy bills. Choose units with high SEER ratings. The experts at Mid-State Heating and Cooling can make sure you’re set up with the best unit for your home.
- Keep in mind that if your air conditioning unit is more than 10 years old, it could be losing efficiency and costing you more money. Consider upgrading your unit if this is the case.
