New Regulations for Home Air Conditioning: What It Means for You

February 14th, 2017

AC-Air-Conditioning-Repair-TechniciansThe ozone layer is there to protect the earth, preventing too many UV rays from reaching us. It works sort of like sunscreen for the planet, but in decades’ past, we have known little about this ozone layer and that the substances we release into the air may speed along its depletion.

In recent years, however, the US government and others have taken steps to reduce the use and release of ODS (ozone-depleting substances) such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). This has an impact on the heating and air conditioning industry, as the refrigerants once common in air conditioners and heat pumps are now being phased out. Continue Reading

January 16th, 2017

You are probably aware that every home’s air conditioning and heating system has an air filter. This filter is typically made of fiberglass, paper, or a cloth material. And its function is to catch particulate moving through the air so that it cannot circulate through your HVAC system.

The Hidden Reason You’re Not Comfortable (and Spending Too Much on Heating)

December 12th, 2016

When the house isn’t warm enough, you simply go to the thermostat and turn the temperature up by a few degrees. Normally, this would do the trick. But if there are leaks and cracks in the ductwork, you might have to turn up the temperature much higher than you should have to in order to make certain rooms tolerable. And this means a higher utility bill as well.

If you feel as if your home has inconsistent temperatures and if you pay high bills for heating, we may have a diagnosis. Technicians can examine your ductwork to find out whether it is leaking. A leaky air vent system is more common—and more troublesome—than you may think. Continue Reading
