Have you ever tried to drive on a road full of potholes? Or, for an even better example, imagine having to cross a bridge to get to work but discovering that the bridge has collapsed. While far less dangerous, a major problem in your ductwork has this effect on the flow of air throughout your house. A large break or disconnect in your ductwork means the airflow is stopped until repairs or a replacement are taken care of.
Here’s the tricky part though. Unlike a fallen or crumbling bridge, a disconnect or major damage to your ducts isn’t visibly obvious. So, how do you know when you need expert service to fix your ducts? Read on to find out if you need to schedule your ductwork services with our team.

How much time do you spend breathing dirty air? On average, we spend more than 90% of our time indoors and the recirculated air we’re breathing isn’t always the cleanest. Bacteria, viruses, dead skin cells, and any other number of things are floating around.

There is! Installing a UV germicidal light in your Hickory, NY home is a fabulous option. Check out the benefits of installing this special light in your HVAC system here!

What many homeowners don’t realize about the air conditioner’s compressor is that this component is the most important, and the most expensive, part of the system. So if it breaks down, you might be wondering, “Is this the end of my air conditioner?”
The short, noncommittal answer to this is “maybe.” Don’t worry, we will elaborate!
Your compressor is tasked with actually allowing refrigerant within the system to move and transfer from a gaseous to a liquid state and vice versa. This is what makes the cooling process possible. In some cases, you may be able to replace just the compressor and not the air conditioner, if the compressor malfunctions, but in most cases, it’s best to replace the whole AC system. Read on to learn why!

Summer is nowhere near over and your air conditioner has likely been put to the test!
Of course, you don’t have to worry about this too much if you had your cooling system professionally tuned up last spring. To keep your air conditioner in great working order, it’s important to have professional maintenance done once a year–or twice a year if we’re talking about a heat pump system. This will prolong system life in addition to reducing repair needs and retaining system efficiency.
In fact, we estimate that maintenance can help reduce up to 85% of the repair costs your system might otherwise need in its lifetime. Still, though, it is possible for repair issues to crop up in between tune-ups. Because of this, and because the middle to end of summer is the most likely time for an air conditioner to break down, it’s important that you know the signs of an air conditioner in disrepair.
Read on to learn what some of these signs are, and what they could mean.

There’s a common subject you’ll see written about air conditioners–that noises coming from the system indicate something is wrong with it that needs anything from minor troubleshooting to a major repair. On our blog alone, you’ve probably seen us mention this dozens of times.
What you normally don’t see, however, is anything listing out the sounds your air conditioner should make. No air conditioner is silent, after all, and giving us a call for every single sound you hear coming from your cooling system would get pretty tiring. So, how do you know what’s a normal sound and what isn’t? Read on to find out!
