Why You Should Enroll in a Maintenance Plan

Monday, December 30th, 2019

animated-checklistHere in the Lawrenceville area, we tend to give a lot of attention to our air conditioning systems versus our heaters as far as HVAC issues go. This is understandable—after all, we need our air conditioners to help up combat the high heat and humidity we deal with for so long each year. But this doesn’t mean that the heater in your home is any less important than your cooling system.

When temperatures drop—and they’re already doing so—you’ll be just as thankful for your heater as you are for your air conditioner in the summertime.

That said, there is one very important thing that your heater and air conditioner have in common, other than the fact that they both keep you comfortable throughout the year. They both require annual maintenance! Maintenance is key to boosting system performance and increasing efficiency. Read on to learn more.

“Do I Really Need to Change My Air Filter Between Maintenance Sessions?”

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

man-holding-air-filterWhether we’re talking about your forced-air cooling system, furnace, or heat pump, you need to change your air filter. This is an important part of maintaining your HVAC system and should be done every 1-3 months depending on the type of air filter and the level of contaminants in your home.

But, why? More on that below!

In the meantime, keep in mind that professional maintenance should always be done by a trained and licensed technician. We encourage and urge you to handle the air filter on your own, and even keep the area around your outdoor unit clear of debris. But a thorough inspection, comprehensive cleaning, and any component adjustments should only ever be done by trained professionals.

We digress, though—why is it so important that you change your air filter between maintenance sessions?

No, Your Cooling System Shouldn’t Make THAT Noise

Monday, August 26th, 2019

woman-covering-her-earsHave you ever heard someone say that it’s okay for an air conditioner to operate louder on a muggy day, because it’s “working harder?” Unfortunately, even if it was an HVAC technician that told you this, it’s just not true. Nor does a grinding noise mean that your system is just “warming up.”

Take our word for it, these silly claims are not right.

Air conditioners are built to operate as quietly as possible. In fact, the only sounds you should hear coming from a functional air conditioner is the sound of the air “wooshing” through your vents, and the hum of the compressor outside. True, these not be “quiet” sounds to you, but in relation to the noises that we’re about to describe below, they’re pretty minor.

contractors-standing-side-by-sideIt’s that time of year again—there are two seasons where HVAC professionals are the busiest. Winter, and summertime.

With summer here now, it’s the most common time we’ll get called for urgent repair sand services—perhaps even a “quick” replacement (spoiler alert: no air conditioner replacement should ever be rushed).

As the temperatures start soaring upward, it is inevitable that homeowners will run into cooling system problems, especially if their systems are aging or have not been maintained properly. As such, we understand the urgency when something goes awry with your cooling system. You want help and you want it fast! So, you choose the most immediately available HVAC company and give them a call.

What if we told you that was the wrong approach?

May is nearly over, and temperatures are already rising. Did you forget to schedule air conditioning maintenance? Is it too late? Maybe you should just skip it, not that you’re going to need your air conditioner on a daily basis.

Don’t do this!

Skipping maintenance altogether can be detrimental to the functionality and efficiency of your cooling system, and in the absence of a total system breakdown, it’s never too late to get your air conditioner tuned up. This truly is a case of “it’s better late than never,” and there are many benefits to maintenance. There are also a number of advantages to being part of our maintenance program—more on that below.
