Attempting furnace repairs on your own can lead not only to injury but also operational problems for the heating system. On top of that, it can end up costing you more than just calling a pro would have in the first place, since you’ll probably have to call us when your repair doesn’t last or something happens to the system because it wasn’t properly cared for.

How to Listen for Signs of AC Trouble

Monday, August 10th, 2020

woman-covering-earsWouldn’t it be nice if someday there was a way for our air conditioners to tell us when they weren’t feeling well? Like, an app that sends us a text message saying, “Help! My refrigerant is low!” or “I think I have a bent fan blade.”

Get Your AC Ready to Work This Summer

Monday, April 6th, 2020

outdoor-ac-unit-with-clipboard-on-itHave you scheduled spring maintenance for your air conditioner yet? If not, now is a perfect time! We typically recommend this service right before you need your system the most, so it has the best chance of making it through summer without needing repairs or breaking down on you unexpectedly. During maintenance, our technicians fully inspect your air conditioner, clean it inside and out, make adjustments, and recommend repairs to you if needed.

This all helps your air conditioner perform better, last longer, and keep you more comfortable! Of course, this type of maintenance service should be left to the professionals—forgoing professional maintenance and trying to do complex work on your own can actually void out the system warranty. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t steps you can take that help with overall maintenance. Curious? Read on!

Monday, February 24th, 2020

heating-ventHere’s the thing—the number one way to prevent furnace repair in Norman, OK is to schedule routine maintenance. Now, we aren’t saying that you’ll never need a furnace repair—that would be an outrageous claim. Every heating or air conditioning system will succumb to natural wear and tear, and as a result, will need repairs.

But to keep those repair needs minor and to limit your chances of having an HVAC emergency on your hands, you’d do well to schedule annual maintenance services.

But no, that does not mean it’s too late now to schedule it if you skipped it this fall.

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

Monday, 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!
