Locking caps are a safety feature on your AC unit that protects against substance abuse. Some states or building inspectors do not require locking caps on refrigerant lines, but in Ohio, it is required by law to have them. Homeowners should have locking caps installed on their air conditioning units as it is enforced very heavily by local inspectors during new

Viccarone Heating Featured in High Performance HVAC Today

December 02, 2020 Category: General

We're excited to announce Viccarone Heating & Air Conditioning has been recognized by NCI's High-Performance HVAC Today! Gino Viccarone is a lifer. From the time of his graduation from the West Side Institute vocational school in Cleveland, OH, to where he is today, he has only worked in the HVAC Industry. His first job was with a local HVAC contracting company where he worked for slightly more than eight years as a service technician. The hours were long, the work could be grueling, especially during the hot, muggy Cleveland summers. Eventually, he was given the opportunity to do some installation work and he fell in love. In 1994, he decided to start his own company, and Viccarone Heating and Air Conditioning was born. He operated the business from his home. “My father was retiring from his job at the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper and he decided to volunteer four years of his time riding along with me in the truck. He refused to let me pay him. He often would buy me lunch, especially on those days when I was getting frustrated.” THE EARLY YEARS In the beginning, Viccarone did a lot of commercial work and as the business grew, he needed to get out of the house. In those early days, he worked a lot for an industrial manufacturing company in Cleveland, OH known as Kirkwood Industries doing, as he says, “whatever they needed.” Much of that work was servicing and maintaining their rooftop units, creating drying ovens, as well as dus

November 06, 2018 Category: Venting

As a premier heating and cooling provider in both Ohio and Illinois, some of the calls we receive most often are from homeowners who have noticed a condensation issue within the walls, when an appliance has stopped working properly or their furnace is not venting efficiently during the winter months. When your ventilation gets to the point of causing condensation on your walls, it’s unfortunate that the likelihood of damage to the appliance or structure of the home has occurred as well. Viccarone Heating and Air Conditioning would like to help homeowners prevent these problems, and the often expensive repairs that result, with a guide on how to conduct a visual ventilation system inspection. How to Conduct a Visual Ventilation System Inspection Visual inspection of all ventilation systems in your home should be conducted semi-annually for the most protection. If you notice any warning signs, contact us right away. Our technicians are available to help fix the ventilation system and protect your home, and are also able to conduct inspections of your systems for you, often pinpointing and rectifying potentially hazardous situations before they progress.  Most homes have a multitude of ventilation systems. Below, we’ll discuss each one and note what you should look for as you inspect them. What You Should Look for When You Inspect....
