If you have air filters installed into your home’s HVAC
system, or you are currently considering it, then it means you have concerns
about your household’s indoor air quality. You’re probably right to be concerned;
poor indoor air quality is a problem across the country, and right now everyone
is worried about indoor contaminants.
But are those air filters enough? Do you need to have an
electronic air purification system installed as well?
The best way to find out is to work with our indoor air quality
professionals. We can provide you with some helpful information while you’re
waiting for us to arrive.

What do you know about ductless HVAC systems? You may have
seen them a few times before in buildings and not quite known what they were
(something that looks like a window AC unit, except it’s high on the wall and doesn’t
extend through the back of it). Maybe you’ve read a bit about how they’re
growing in popularity in the US after spreading rapidly around Europe and
Japan. If you’ve thought that perhaps a ductless system may be a good idea for
your home comfort, this is the post you’re looking for. Our team handles services
for ductless systems (a.k.a. ductless mini split heat pumps), including
installation, and we can give you a rundown on why they’re good for many homes.

When we first started writing a regular blog to provide valuable information to our customers about their HVAC equipment and our services, we opened with an urge to schedule spring tune-ups for air conditioners. This wasn’t a random topic selection: routine AC maintenance is one of the most important services anyone can have done for their home cooling system, and spring is the ideal time to arrange for it.
But we know that people are often hesitant about signing up for an annual service. “Is it that important to have this done each year? Can I maybe skip a year and not have to worry?” Well, you can make your own choices about this—but we strongly recommend you reconsider delaying service and never miss out on annual AC tune-ups.

It’s something everyone knows from when they’re young: when a
summer day is more humid, the heat feels worse. This isn’t because high
humidity makes the day hotter. When it’s 85°F outside, it remains 85°F no
matter if the relative humidity is a bone-dry 10% or a sopping wet 90%. What
changes is how that 85°F feels. With more moisture in the air, it
becomes more difficult for the human body to release heat through the skin.
Perspiration slows down because there is too much water in the air. The result
is more heat is trapped inside the body, making it feel hotter. It’s as if you decided
to put on a coat on a hot day!

You want to trust that your home’s air conditioning system will get through the summer without running into any troubles. Who wants to have an interruption to their household cooling on blistering hot days? Although there is no way you can completely guarantee the AC won’t break down during the summer, there are two ways to help prevent it. The first we addressed last month: schedule a spring maintenance tune-up and inspection for the AC.
In this post, we’re going to talk about the other way you can stop an emergency shutdown for your AC, and that’s paying close attention to the early signs of a malfunction. Air conditioners rarely break without warning, and if you know what to look out for, you can alert our technicians and we can be out to fix the problem… before it’s a problem.

This summer promises to be another hot one, and you’ll rely
on your central air conditioning system to circulate cool temperatures to the
rooms. But let’s talk about the word rely for a moment. Do you think you
can rely on your current air conditioner for another summer? You may have
concerns about its age, its performance, the cost to run it, and its overall …
Choosing to get a new air conditioning system is a major
decision for homeowners. It requires weighing the pros and cons of continuing
with repairs or going ahead with a replacement. In a few cases, the answer is
obvious—such as when an air conditioning system fails so completely it can’t be
repaired. But in most situations, the choice isn’t so clear.
But don’t worry. We can help.

The spring is usually the season when people have the least
concern for the indoor comfort in their homes. Winter cold fades, summer heat
hasn’t arrived yet. The heating system turns off, the air conditioner has yet
to turn on.
But this is an important time for HVAC systems—because during
the period when they’re aren’t needed as much is the ideal time to have them
maintained. Just the way that amusement parks use the off-season to shut down
favorite attractions for the regular maintenance required to keep the rides
running well and safely.
