Tips for Boosting AC Efficiency This Year

Monday, April 4th, 2022

There aren’t many things that HVAC professionals will tell you to do on your own when it comes to servicing your HVAC systems. And there is definitely a reason for this when it comes to big repair needs. The fact of the matter is that there are some components of your air conditioning and heating systems that the pros need special training and licensing to handle. This includes working with components like refrigerant and natural gas.

Professional maintenance is vital for the health of your air conditioner, the efficiency of your home, and for your family’s comfort. Maintenance enables our technicians to comprehensively inspect your cooling system for problems, anything that may need adjusting, and anything that needs to be cleaned. It also allows us to alert you to repair needs. And lastly, maintenance helps your system work more efficiently. But there’s more you can do besides just scheduling maintenance. Read on to learn more!

Monday, October 4th, 2021

As we often hear said around our neck of the woods, different strokes for different folks. It’s crazy to think of air conditioning as a one size fits all solution. People have wildly different standards when it comes to temperature preferences, ideal humidity conditions, and the enjoyment of seasons. Some homeowners like to have a perfectly comfortable temperature throughout the majority of the year, while others are alright with some temperature fluctuations, as long as they remain safe and comfortable at home.

Different air conditioning systems can work for different homes and budgets. Our blog post today is dedicated to showcasing the different types of air conditioning installations in Mooresville, NC that we provide. We’ll give a breakdown of each system and discuss their major differences. Once you’ve got a better picture of the different types of AC systems, you’ll be able to choose your next unit with confidence!

As Summer Comes to a Close, Be Aware of These AC Repair Needs

Monday, September 6th, 2021

two-techs-working-on-outdoor-ac-unitAir conditioning repairs are one of those home services you never want to delay. You might be tempted to–especially as the official end of summer nears. After all, as long as your cooling system is still running, if you don’t have repairs in the budget, why bother? Well, one reason is that by ignoring repair needs, you risk the AC system completely breaking down on you when you least expect it, and when you need it the most.

We encourage our customers to always take care of their air conditioners the moment they notice there’s a repair need. This is especially true at the end of the season. First off, the problem could be something that will impact your heater, too–like damaged ductwork or a malfunctioning thermostat. Secondly, neglecting your suffering air conditioner at the end of the summer season could leave you with an unpleasant surprise next spring–a system that just won’t turn on.

Read on as we uncover some of the most common end-of-season AC repair needs we get called for.

What Should You Do If Your AC Compressor Fails?

Monday, August 9th, 2021

compressor-set-down-in-outside-ac-unitDid you know the compressor is considered the heart of your air conditioner? While the thermostat serves as the brain, sending signals to the air conditioner and the heater on when it should cycle on and off, the compressor is the central component of the air conditioner, where refrigerant flows in and out of, in order to make the cooling process possible.

The compressor is also the most expensive part of your air conditioner! It comprises the outdoor unit of your AC and when it fails, it almost always means that it would be best to replace the entire air conditioner. But this isn’t true in all cases.

Read on as we uncover what a failed compressor means for your air conditioner, and when it’s time to replace (or if you could get by with a repair).

Is Your Air Conditioner Struggling to Keep Up?

Monday, July 12th, 2021

two-technicians-working-on-outside-ac-unitImagine this scene playing out in your home: You’re relaxing in your living room on an 85° day with 65% humidity. It’s sweltering out there! But that’s okay because your air conditioning system is blasting away, providing you will cool air that makes you feel perfectly comfortable. Until suddenly, it isn’t.

You run over to your thermostat. Maybe someone changed the setting on it? Nope, the settings are what they should be. You check your circuit breaker–maybe the HVAC circuit breaker has tripped and needs to be reset. Nope, that’s not it either. So, what’s the problem?

You go ahead and call for emergency repair, but it will be a while before a pro shows up because this is a common time of year for those emergencies to happen. Suddenly, your relaxing afternoon isn’t so relaxing anymore, right?

Fortunately, almost all air conditioner breakdowns can be prevented, simply by knowing the signs that your air conditioner is struggling and needs repair. What are these signs? Read on to find out!

Monday, April 19th, 2021

woman-holding-hand-to-ear-to-listenWhile it’s still on the cooler side in some parts of the country and homeowners there are just now starting to schedule air conditioner maintenance, those of us here are already using our cooling systems on a pretty regular basis.
