Why Insulation Matters Year-Round

Monday, May 3rd, 2021

attic-with-cellulose-insulationHave you ever set foot in a historical building or even an older home that hasn’t been updated in quite some time, and noticed that it’s just as cold, or hot, as it is outside? This is because homes weren’t always built with proper insulation. In fact, the use of insulation in homebuilding hasn’t even been around that long, but it certainly makes a difference in your comfort—maybe even more than you realize.

If you ever think your home could be more comfortable or your HVAC systems should work more efficiently, please give us a call—our insulation services might be just what you need.

Should You Have Your Air Conditioner Maintained Now?

Monday, April 5th, 2021

two-technicians-working-on-air-air-conditionerIt can be easy to dismiss the recommendation for annual air conditioning maintenance. After all, nothing is actually wrong with your air conditioner, so does it really need service at all? It’s never suffered a loss of cooling power–by all accounts, it’s working “just fine.”

But you shouldn’t settle for “just fine”! What if your air conditioner isn’t actually working as best as it could, and as a result is costing each month you more money than you should have to spend? We recommend maintenance because it helps prevent problems. We would love for you to never run into an emergency AC repair need, but the only way to help guarantee that is by taking proper care of the system.

Why Regular Furnace Maintenance Is So Important

Monday, January 11th, 2021

furnace-jetsIt’s officially 2021, and with everything going on in the world, it can be really easy to forget about your household needs. But trust us when we say your comfort and well-being matters! We truly believe that, and that’s why we encourage all of our customers to invest in heating maintenance each year. And no, it’s not too late!

Professional furnace maintenance should be performed once a year. You’ll typically hear HVAC pros, including ours, say that it’s best to have your heater tuned-up in the fall before you need it the most—before winter makes things too cold. But it’s actually far more important to have it done consistently than it is to have it done at the same time each year.

Read on to learn why routine furnace maintenance is so important.

“Do I Need Duct Sealing? (And Can I Do it Myself?)”

Monday, December 28th, 2020

technician-hands-sealing-ductworkWhen you hear the term “home energy solutions,” what comes to mind? If you’re like many homeowners, it’s your heating and cooling systems. These do, after all, account for over half of a home’s energy use. So you want them to work as efficiently and effectively as possible, right? But your HVAC systems simply cannot perform well if your ductwork is damaged or torn.

If this is the case, you need duct sealing! You may be wondering, “Why would I need to have this done professionally? Can’t I just seal up ducts myself with duct tape?”

Well, no. Duct sealing is not something you can or should do on your own with a roll of duct tape. The reason for this is mainly because duct tape isn’t appropriately named! It’s not actually the right tool for sealing actual HVAC ducts—for this you need the use of professional-grade mastic and the skills of an experienced HVAC technician.

Monday, September 21st, 2020

technician-looking-over-furnaceIf the weather this past week was any indication, even though the official start of fall is here, our temperatures are still trending on the high side. So it may seem silly, perhaps even absurd, to already be talking about our heating systems.

Here’s the thing though–when temperatures do cool down and you need your heater, you’re going to want it to actually run, and to do so efficiently and effectively as possible. One way to help ensure this is the case is by scheduling routine heating maintenance. So, no, it’s not too early to think about a heater tune-up. Read on to learn why!

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.

Is Professional Duct Cleaning Necessary?

Monday, March 9th, 2020

before-and-after-shot-of-duct-cleaning“Do I really need duct cleaning?”

This is a common question among homeowners, and it makes sense. After all, it takes years for dirt and dust to build up in ductwork, and you may not even notice the decline in your indoor air quality. Perhaps you’ve even accepted that you and your family members suffer from allergies and there’s nothing more you can do about it.

Well, professional duct cleaning service keeps you from breathing in contaminants and paying more than necessary for your HVAC services. Duct cleaning helps you avoid these detriments by improving your indoor air quality (which can actually be worse than that of outdoors without the right air quality systems and services in place). Improved air quality leads to better health, easier breathing, and more comfort.

Having duct cleaning done every few years helps you achieve this, plus presents you with the following benefits.
