Why You Should Never Fix an HVAC System Yourself

May 7th, 2018

air-conditioning-maintenanceSpringtime usually means repairs for your heating or cooling system in the event they run into trouble. For furnaces and other heaters, the weather has become warm enough to shut them down until the fall, and any problems that cropped up during the winter can be properly addressed. For air conditioners, it means dealing with any problems that may cause trouble later in the summer, when temperatures are soaring and your AC needs to perform on a daily basis.

In both cases, the mild weather or spring provides a window whereby you can repair your HVAC system without having pressing need of it: saving you a lot of trouble and consternation while allowing you to schedule any needed repairs at a time of your convenience.

Alternate Types of HVAC System

March 12th, 2018

ductless-mini-split-ACMost people are accustomed to traditional centralized air conditioners and furnaces, which heat or cool the air inside the unit before blowing them into the home with a fan. It’s a simple and effective way to control the temperatures in your home, but it’s not the only way to do so, and depending upon the needs of your home, you may benefit from something a little different.

Spring makes an excellent time to replace an old or outdated HVAC system with a new one. The weather is growing warm, but it’s not yet hot enough to need an air conditioner. And if a centralized system isn’t quite what your home needs, or you flat-out can’t make a typical system work given your home’s specific dimensions, then one of these alternate forms of HVAC system may be just what the doctor ordered.
