The Problem with Low Humidity (and What Can Be Done)

October 21st, 2019

happy-couple-enjoying-indoorsWhen it comes to indoor air quality, you may think that the measurement for this is how hot or cool it is in your home. Your HVAC systems certainly play an important role in your overall indoor air quality, but they’re certainly not the only component. In fact, your HVAC system can actually contribute to lower indoor air quality just by their nature.

One of the common ways in which our indoor air quality suffers as we get closer to the winter months is with low humidity. The ideal relative humidity level in any home is between 30%-50%. Anything above this range means there’s too much moisture in the air—a common summertime problem—while anything below this range means it’s too dry. And dry air can be as bad in your home as humid air!

Have You Checked Your Ductwork Lately?

August 12th, 2019

inside-of-flexible-ductWith summer progressing right along, there’s no denying that hotter temperatures are here to stay, at least for the next couple of months. So of course, you want to make sure that your cooling system is ready, by providing it with the right services (like maintenance). Turning up your air conditioner each year—or every 6 months if you have a heat pump system—with the help of our trained technicians, is really the only way to ensure it will function without any issues this summer, and that it won’t cost more to operate than it should.

There’s much more to keeping your cooling system operating as efficiently as possible, though. Maintenance is essential, but it’s not the end all. It helps spot AC problems before they become big emergencies… but what if your AC problem isn’t a problem with the system itself?

One of the biggest energy thieves you might face over the course of your homeownership is actually leaking ductwork.

Why You Should Join a Maintenance Membership Program

July 29th, 2019

animated-checklistDid you make a plan for the hot weather this year? Is your air conditioner prepared for the work it’s about to go through? We’re talking about preventive maintenance—spring is typically the best time of year to have this service done, as the weather hasn’t settled into steady warmth yet and we don’t need our air conditioners on a practically hour by hour basis.

But it’s far more important that you have your maintenance done consistently than it is the time of year you have it done. For an air conditioner or heater, you should be having maintenance done once a year. For a heat pump or ductless system, which heats and cools homes, maintenance should be done twice a year.

The best way to remember all this? By enrolling in a maintenance membership program with a professional HVAC contractor. Maintenance is easily one of the most important HVAC services in Norman, OK you can have done, and with a membership, we’ll be the ones to remind you to get it done. That’s not the only great benefit of a maintenance plan though! Read on…
