It’s Never Too Early to Prevent Air Conditioning Breakdowns!

March 11th, 2019

ac-system-being-worked-onOur hottest temperatures are still a good ways off. But don’t let our relatively cool spring weather trick you into thinking that you don’t need to worry about your air conditioner just yet. When summer does arrive in earnest, it can sneak up on you. And even though the warmer weather is generally pretty welcomed, you won’t get to enjoy it as much indoors if you need AC repair in Norman, OK.

The best way to prevent this? By scheduling air conditioning maintenance, sooner than later.

There are some basic maintenance chores you can do on your own. This includes changing the air filter in your air conditioner as needed. Typically, this means every 1-3 months during periods of use (and if you used a furnace this winter, the air filter is probably shared between the two systems, so it’s actually a great idea to change it now!) It’s also a good idea to remove any debris from around your outdoor condenser unit, to help airflow.

Male hands setting up ventilation system indoorsLet’s put it this way—damaged ductwork certainly doesn’t help your furnace, nor your comfort.

We get it, you want your heater to work as effectively and efficiently as possible. Well, then it’s important that you think about the “V” part in “HVAC.” That is the ventilation that connects your furnace (and central air conditioner) to the outside, making the distribution of conditioned air possible.

Don’t Ignore These Sounds from Your Heater

December 3rd, 2018

woman covering her ears, on white backgroundIdeal scenario: you turn on your furnace. It takes a few minutes for the fan to finally start that familiar “whirring” sound, since the furnace heat exchangers actually have to be warmed up by the burners, and the fan doesn’t start going until that occurs. Once you hear that whir, you are satisfied knowing that warm, comfortable air is about to come flowing through your vents.

Other than this sound, you shouldn’t expect to hear much else coming from your furnace. But what if this isn’t the case? What if you hear unusual or loud sounds coming from the system itself, your ductwork, or your vents? Well, then it is time to call in the pros for heater repair in Oklahoma City, OK.
