If you read enough about the benefits of ductless systems, you’d think they were pure magic and ran on miracles.

hvac-technician-air-condition-repairSome equipment you only use part of the year, such as a lawn mower or a snow blower. Otherwise, it’s out of sight and out of mind. That is until you need to mow your yard or clear a driveway. Then you worry about all the things that might go wrong in your time of need. The same is true for your AC system. For much of the year in Ohio, it’s on the backburner. When summer arrives, however, be on the lookout for these common signs of AC trouble.

Doing so can save you effort when the weather starts to cool again at the end of summer, as well as ensuring that your furnace is ready to go on the first day you need it.

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.

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.

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

high-humidity-levelsHeat is always a concern during the summer months, when you need your air conditioner to work every day as expected to keep your household comfortable. But Ohio brings an extra wrinkle to the equation every summer: high levels of humidity, which can create that manky gross feeling in your home and cause all kinds of other problems to boot.

Air conditioners can deal with the problem to a certain extent, but they’re not set up to handle high humidity levels the way a whole-house dehumidifier can. Now is an excellent time to install one in your home, before the summer begins in earnest.
