AC Sounds You Shouldn’t Neglect

Monday, August 3rd, 2020

woman-covering-her-earsWe may not have as sweltering summers as they do in other parts of the country, but that doesn’t mean our air conditioning systems don’t get quite the workout! In fact, they go through a lot of strain throughout the years, accumulating natural wear and tear that can shorten their lifespan and lead to efficiency problems.

Of course, you can prevent most of these problems by staying on top of your maintenance needs. If you have a standard air conditioner, this means scheduling routine tune-ups once a year. If you have a 2-in-1 heat pump system, it means scheduling a tune-up every 6 months.

Regardless of how good you are at staying on top of maintenance, however, it’s also important that you be aware of the signs that something is wrong with your cooling system. One of these signs is strange and unfamiliar noises. But what noises are we talking about, exactly? Read on!

It’s Never Too Late! Why You Should Schedule AC Maintenance

Monday, July 20th, 2020

two-technicians-looking-over-checklist-as-they-service-air-conditionerHomeowners may often hear us say, or even read on our blog, that it’s best to schedule air conditioning maintenance in the spring, before you need the system the most. This is true! The reason we say it is because it’s the most convenient time for you to have it done. This is the time where HVAC professionals are less busy, and it’s easier for you to get a professional out on your schedule to get a tune-up done.

During the summer, HVAC pros such as ourselves are often out on emergency calls, and it may be a little harder to pin us down as soon as you would like. Plus, if you have an emergency yourself due to skipping maintenance, that puts a strain on your household and quality of life.

All that said, the only time it’s ever “too late” for AC maintenance, is if your system completely broke down and there is no chance for repair. We would much rather see you schedule AC maintenance on a consistent basis (once a year) than skip it altogether because you “didn’t get to it in time.” But why does this matter so much? Read on as we explain!

Is it Too Late for Furnace Maintenance?

Monday, February 17th, 2020

technician-working-on-furnaceIn the absence of a complete furnace breakdown, which may require replacement of the system altogether, no it is never too late for furnace maintenance.

“But I always hear that I need to schedule it in the fall…”

Yes, that’s true, this is our recommendation for your heating maintenance. The reason we suggest this is because it gives our techs a chance to thoroughly inspect, adjust, and clean your system before you need it the most. We also recommend that you have air conditioning maintenance done in the spring for the same reason.

Is maintenance really a big deal though? Read on as we answer that question, in detail.
