There are often times when home service companies get a call from a homeowner who is concerned about a major plumbing leak in their living space, only to realize that the problem is actually a leaking air conditioner. AC systems can leak water, but it’s not because they use your plumbing system to operate. Instead, condensation builds up within the system and can, if it’s not properly draining, find a way to spill over, into and onto your property.

Depending on the location of a cooling system’s indoor unit, the results of that leak can have a huge negative impact. So, what should you do? And is it possible to prevent this from happening again? Read on to learn the answers to these questions!

The Unfortunate Impact of a Clogged Air Conditioner Filter

Monday, June 28th, 2021

mans-hands-pulling-out-dirty-air-filterHomeowners often think that the only reason they need to worry at all about their HVAC system’s air filter is because of the particles and allergens in their indoor air. Unfortunately, this isn’t quite right.

People often assume that a dirty air filter is an issue because it keeps the air dirty and that this is the reason technicians tell you to change it every 1-3 months. If you aren’t suffering from allergies at the moment, this means your air filter is fine where it is, right?

While helping your indoor air quality is a very small advantage of these air filters, their purpose isn’t entirely for that. Their actual purpose is to protect the interior components of the HVAC system itself from dirt, dust, and other debris. Read on to learn more about how a dirty, clogged air filter impacts the life of your air conditioner.

Monday, February 8th, 2021

vent-low-on-wallIf you’re like most homeowners throughout the U.S., you love to hear of new ways to improve energy efficiency and subsequently save money.
