Most homeowners don’t even think of calling an HVAC technician (heating and air conditioning) until something is wrong. But by the time the air conditioner breaks down or stops providing cool air, the problem is at its worst. You may have saved some time, money, and frustration with an AC tune-up before the summer. Typically, this process consists of the following.
- Inspection of your air conditioning equipment

It’s something we hear from homeowners all the time. “Does my air conditioner just need more refrigerant?” When an air conditioning system breaks, they hope the solution will be something “small,” like adding refrigerant, something many people believe should be done regularly anyway.

The 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

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 basic air filter should do a decent job of eliminating some of the particles that aggravate your allergy symptoms or irritate the sinuses. However, many particles still make it through. Continue Reading
