Heating and Cooling too in Glendale WI

Temperature extremes are the norm in the greater Milwaukee area and the areas along Lake Michigan see it all. But our extremes usually range from near zero outside one week followed by mid 40's two days later, a sizeable range of temperature but nothing like for instance at the international space station. At the station, the side facing the sun can reach 250�F while the shade side plunges to -250�F a 500 degree temperature span versus our at most 40.

Heat Transfer

Environmental heat is transferred in the air primarily by conduction (collisions between individual air molecules) and convection (the circulation or bulk motion of air), this is difficult on the space station but luckily not in our homes. We can heat our homes by trapping air inside our insulation, also our homes are never 100% insulated which is good because if it was, we would be building heat up as our bodies and heating systems, lamps, computers and everything electronic produces heat would stay trapped and make our home hotter and hotter. At the space station the insulation needs to be 100% as air leakage would be very bad and the solar radiation also needs to stay outside to keep the astronauts alive. In our homes we vent the heat in the summer through our air conditioner with a 3 square foot grid of coils in our outdoor units. At the space station the "vented" through radiators are filled with liquid ammonia with a coil or radiator size of 1680 square feet!

Home System

But eventho our systems are much less complex than the space station, proper maintenance of your home heating and cooling system is still best left to the experts like Lake Country Repair. Call them today to get your furnace checked. Mid winter is actually a great time to do the maintenance. Your system has been running for a while and you will know if things "sound" or "feel" different from prior years. Have a much warmer or colder room than you are used to? Time to check the balance of your system to help keep you comfortable.
