AC Troubleshooting: When to Repair vs. Replace

Monday, September 9th, 2019

old-outdoor-ac-unitJust because the official end of summer is near doesn’t mean our temperatures will suddenly cool down. In fact, you can expect to need your cooling system for quite a bit longer.

However, this winding-down time of the season is a good point to assess your air conditioner’s needs and whether you want to keep using it after you fix it up a bit, or if you’re ready for replacement.

The bottom line is you don’t want to wait for your AC system to completely break down before you get it replaced—this can leave you in a stifling home in the middle of summer. If possible, we advise you to get ahead of the problem and replace your system before it starts giving you any issues such as increased electrical bills and unreliable operation. But, how do you know when replacement is the better option over repair?

What Poor Ductless Installation Leads To

Monday, August 26th, 2019

closeup-shot-of-ductless-air-handlerWe hope that you’ve never been in a situation where you learned the hard way what a poor HVAC system installation can lead to. It is important, though, to be aware that ductless cooling and heating systems have unique needs that aren’t concerns for other types of more traditional HVAC systems. Therefore, if your ductless system isn’t installed just right, and followed up with regular professional maintenance, the system can suffer—as can your heating and cooling bills.

Ductless systems are a leading choice for more and more homeowners, due to their excellent efficiency. They enable homeowners to have zone-controlled cooling and offer a number of other tangible benefits. They’re fantastic for homes that don’t have a space for a ducted system, or even households that experience indoor air quality problems from a ducted HVAC system. But, as we said, ductless systems do have unique needs—what happens if yours isn’t installed the right way?

AC Installation: Why Size Matters

Monday, April 22nd, 2019

outside-ac-unitThe official start of spring just a couple weeks ago was a great reminder that even warmer temps are right around the corner.
