Monday, June 1st, 2020

woman-covering-her-earsWhen you live somewhere as uncomfortably hot and humid as we do throughout the summer, it goes without saying that using your air conditioner daily is a must. Since summer is well on its way, it’s vital that you keep a close eye out in case any problems crop up.

How to Detect the Signs Your AC Needs Repair

Monday, May 4th, 2020

two-ac-technicians-in-front-of-outdoor-ac-unit-looking-at-checklist-on-clipboardAir conditioning repair is one of those services nobody wants to have to schedule, but it’s inevitable that at some point it will happen. It’s not that air conditioners aren’t sturdy appliances, but rather that no matter the type of air conditioner, it goes through a natural process of wear and tear. Components break down and need replacement, the strain on the system leads to repair needs, and even the lack of maintenance could mean more repairs are necessary.

The longer you wait to schedule AC repair, the higher chance there is of suffering a complete system breakdown. Nobody wants that in the middle of summer, right? So it’s best to learn now what the signs of an air conditioner in disrepair are. We aren’t calling for homeowners to become AC experts, but we do want you to know when it’s in your best interest to give our pros a call.

Have You Checked Your Ductwork Lately?

Monday, 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.

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

Monday, 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.

The Effects of a Dirty Air Filter

Monday, 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.
