3 Desired Quality Air Conditioning Repair Services

Monday, November 6th, 2017

air-conditioning-repairAir conditioning repairs are more common this time of year than you’d think. With warm weather likely gone until spring, you have lots of time to get any problems with your air conditioner fixed. Many homeowners were forced to run their systems during the hot weather even though they may have evinced problems: anything from a comparative lack of cooling power to an odd noise that just won’t go away. Those problems will need to be addressed before you need your air conditioner again in the spring.

Fall or Spring: What’s the Best Time for Air Conditioning Repair?

Monday, October 9th, 2017

air-conditioning-repairWith the coming of autumn comes cooler temperatures. And with that, your air conditioning is likely going to be put out to pasture until the spring comes around once more. We rarely have need for air conditioners during the cold winter months here in Ohio, and indeed you should never even turn your air conditioner on if the temperature drops below 65°F. (It could cause a lot of damage.) If you’re facing an air conditioning repair issue, the question becomes when to schedule it. Should you do it as soon as possible and get it out of the way? Or wait until spring? The answer depends on you.

Could Your Home Benefit from a Ductless AC System?

Monday, August 14th, 2017

ductless.air-conditioning

Most of us are accustomed to the traditional centralized air conditioners which can be found in many homes in the area. They use a simple system to cool your home during the summer: lowering the temperature of the air in a single central unit, then blowing the cooled air into the various corners of your home with a system of ducts. It’s effective and reliable, which has made it a staple of air conditioning systems in our area. But it’s not the only type of system out there, and if you’ve struggled with central air for whatever reason, you might want to consider another installation option.

We often recommend ductless mini-split systems for homes that can’t support a central air system, or for homes where central air systems aren’t practical. Ductless systems cost more to install, but in the process, they deliver some tangible advantages.

The Benefits of Commercial Rooftop AC

Monday, July 17th, 2017

commercial-hvac-systemsCommercial air conditioners are as important as residential models during our hot and muggy Ohio summers. Indeed, in some ways, they might be even more important, since most people spent the heat of the day in an office, a retail store, a school building, or similar structure that requires commercial air conditioning. That system also needs to perform as expected day in and day out. When it doesn’t, you need a good service to take care of the issue quickly and effectively, without disruption.

In most cases, modular rooftop air conditioning units make the ideal means of delivering cool air to your commercial space (as well as warm air in the winter in most cases). Modular units involve a series of identical HVAC units, each able to deliver a certain amount of cooling power. Why place them on the roof and why use modular units instead of a single AC? There are a number of good reasons, all of which provide key benefits to your office or business.

How Does Air Conditioning Maintenance Help Your Home?

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

central-air-conditioningWe often tout the benefits of air conditioning maintenance, which most people don’t think about very often. But here in the middle of summer, with temperatures high and your air conditioner needed every day, the benefits can be immeasurable. We recommend maintenance sessions once or twice a year, either at the very beginning or very end of cooling season. If you haven’t had maintenance scheduled for the last 12 months, we strongly recommend setting it up. It can pay huge dividends not only this summer, but for many summers to come.

Repair or Replace? How to Choose for Your Air Conditioner

Monday, June 19th, 2017

air-conditioning-replacementLate spring and early summer are the ideal time to give your air conditioner a close look and determine whether it can handle the upcoming months of high heat. This is especially true if it runs into trouble in the next few weeks and you need to make an assessment about whether it’s worth it to repair the system or simply have it replaced. Air conditioners are expensive and the decision to repair or replace a unit is never an easy one. At the end of the day, only the individual homeowner can make that decision. Usually, however, there are a few tell-tale signs that can help you determine whether you should get a given problem fixed, or if replacing the entire unit might be a better use of your money. The more you understand about them, the better choices you can make about what’s best for your home.

An Efficient Air Conditioner Is a Happy Air Conditioner

Monday, June 5th, 2017

air-conditioning-efficiencyAir conditioners see regular use during the hot summer months, and most homeowners are accustomed to paying more in monthly bills when the temperature gets warm. This is to be expected, of course, since the air conditioner in your home needs to run more often in order to keep your home comfortable. But just because you need to pay more for summer air conditioning doesn’t mean you should pay more than is necessary. By improving the efficiency of your air conditioner, you can cut down on the high monthly costs and reduce the wear and tear on the system to boot.

How to Improve the Longevity of Your Air Conditioner

Monday, May 8th, 2017

air-conditioners-outdoorsAir conditioners all come with a warranty, covering the individual components in the event one or more of them breaks down. In most cases, you won’t need to start looking for a new air conditioner until after the warranty expires. But by taking steps early in your air conditioner’s life, you can extend its longevity well past the warranty expiration date—by many years in some cases. Your mileage may vary but early action is key. The more you do over time to keep your air conditioner working at maximum efficiency, the longer it will last.
