The Role Your Insulation Plays in Your HVAC System’s Operation

November 4th, 2019

technician-installing-blown-in-insulationToday’s newly built homes often tote the detail that they are “green and efficient” because they are sealed. This means that the way they are built reduces air leakage which helps to improve the efficiency of the homes systems by making it easier to maintain the ideal indoor temperature.

What is Short-Cycling?

October 21st, 2019

white question mark on blue circle with white backgroundTexas is one of several states that requires the use of efficient, well-maintained air conditioning systems. If you are live in the Lone Star state and you don’t have a properly working AC, you are likely to encounter uncomfortable days filled with heat and humidity throughout most of the year.

If you have a good cooler though, you don’t have to worry about finding sanctuary from high temperatures in a coffee shop or library because you can keep your home as comfortable as you want. However, this doesn’t mean your system will never encounter issues.

One of the many common problems that we see in residential AC systems is short-cycling. Some residents may not realize that short-cycling is an issue simply because their air conditioner is still running, even if it seems to be doing so in short spurts.

The truth is that an air conditioning system that is short-cycling is one that needs repairs sooner than later.
