August 13th, 2018

ductwork being worked on by a technicianIf you’ve lived here for even just a year, then you know how uncomfortably hot and humid it gets during the summer months. That being said, you want an air conditioner that will operate effectively and efficiently, right? Well, consider the “V” part of “HVAC”—is your ventilation system in good shape? We’re talking about the ductwork that connects your air conditioner to the outside, enabling the distribution of cooled air. Given that it is typically out of sight—hidden behind walls, beneath floors, and the like—we don’t blame you if you haven’t given it much thought.

But what you should know, is that if your ductwork is in bad shape either due to age or even a poor installation to begin with, you may find yourself in need of air conditioning repair in Edmond, without knowing the actual cause. If your air ducts are affected by leaks, poor connections, or improper construction, then you can be experiencing problems that lead to poor HVAC efficiency, costing you money that you shouldn’t have to spend.

The Effects of a Dirty Air Filter

July 2nd, 2018

man holding air filter on a white backgroundIf you’ve been reading our blog, you may have seen us mention before the importance of changing your air filter. Maybe you think this is because a dirty air filter contaminates your indoor air, and this is why we urge homeowners to clean or replace theirs every 1-3 months. We understand why you’d assume this, but it’s not actually the case.

The air filter that comes standard with your HVAC systems is in place to block particles and contaminants from damaging the inside of the HVAC systems themselves, by pummeling or jamming the fan or building up on other indoor components. When an air filter is too dirty, it can do just as much damage by now allowing for proper airflow and causing your air conditioner to work harder than it should have to in order to do its job—essentially leading to the need for potentially costly professional AC repair, and maybe even premature cooling system replacement.

Keep reading to learn more about the impact that a dirty air filter has on your cooling system.

hvac vent on wallLong story short? Yes.

Residents of Edmond are no strangers to the high humidity levels that come along with summer heat. And your air conditioner can deal with that humidity a bit, but it’s not designed to lower the humidity—only the temperatures. Furthermore, excess humidity can actually cause damage to your cooling system as it tried to deal with the humidity, and ultimately you’ll be left with a muggy and uncomfortable home.

The good news is that there is a very effective way to rid your home of this uncomfortable and damaging humidity, and prevent AC system problems—the installation of a whole-house dehumidifier.
