How to Choose Between a Central or Ductless Air Conditioner

Monday, April 18th, 2022

ductless-air-handlerWhen homeowners go to buy a new appliance, they’re usually in one of two scenarios:

  1. Their current appliance is breaking down or has already broken down and they need new equipment now or…
  2. Their budget allows for them to get an upgrade appliance, so they want the best that technology has to offer.

Whichever reason is yours, you should know that there is a preconceived notion that the more expensive the system is, the “better” it is, and that’s not necessarily true. The fact of the matter is, which system is right for your specific home is going to depend on many factors.

Signs Your AC Is Failing

Monday, July 27th, 2020

old-rusty-ac-outdoor-unitWe have some bad news–air conditioners don’t last forever!

Okay, you probably already knew that. But do you know how long your air conditioner is meant to last? It does depend on a few factors: the system’s manufacturer, the model of air conditioner, and of course how well you care for it. The latter means that you have your system professionally maintained once a year (or twice a year if you have a heat pump) and that you use it as efficiently as possible.

The average lifespan for a well-maintained cooling system is about 10-15 years. Now, that doesn’t mean it can’t last longer than this. But you’ll be doing your home comfort and your utility bills a disservice if you ignore the signs that your aging AC is actually failing and is just about ready to be replaced. But what if you don’t know the signs? That’s what we’re here for.
