How a Simple Thermostat Update Can Transform Your Summer Experience

Monday, May 15th, 2017

digital-thermostatThis year, make comfort a little bit easier on yourself and your family. Air conditioning can cost quite a bit to run, which makes summer an expensive time in a warm, humid climate like ours. And that means you might make thermostat adjustments that make the people in your home feel a lot less comfortable, raising the temperature for long periods or shutting off the air conditioner completely when you’d rather not.

One potential solution is a simple one: upgrading the thermostat. The thermostat is not, of course, the part of your air conditioner using the most energy. (You can blame that on the compressor and the motors.) While a new thermostat alone may not reduce energy usage, finding a thermostat with advanced programming options makes it easier for you to set it efficiently without feeling uncomfortable.

A Ductless System Needs Maintenance Too!

Monday, April 17th, 2017

ductless-unit-on-wallDuctless air conditioning and heating systems often get mistaken for standard room air conditioners. While they may have many of the same components, the configuration of the two is much different, with ductless air conditioners having an indoor unit and a separate outdoor condenser. As any ductless split owner knows, they involve a larger investment as well.

Take care of your investment by scheduling maintenance for your ductless mini split before the cooling season is in full swing. In fact, we recommend doing so twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, if you can. Here’s why spring ductless AC maintenance is so important.

Cleaning AC Coils: A Little Known AC Maintenance Necessity

Monday, March 20th, 2017

AC_Nature_EfficiencyHopefully, you’ve heard before that it’s important to keep one part of your air conditioning system clean: the filter. The air filter in your AC and furnace (or heat pump, if you have a two-in-one unit) can become clogged with dirt and particulate that makes it more difficult for air to move into the HVAC system. This can cause a number of problems down the line, which is why you should replace your filter about once a month or so.

But this isn’t the only part of your AC system or heat pump you need to keep clean if you expect it to run smoothly. Your air conditioner is home to two important coils—one inside and one outdoors—and today we will focus on the coil outside, the condenser coil.

Monday, November 28th, 2016

The cost of heating your home in the winter may be comparable to the cost of cooling throughout the year, which is why we recommend taking a few steps to make your entire home work more efficiently.

Ductless Mini Split Installation: The Process

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Are you ready to finally have the whole-home cooling and heating you’ve always wanted for your home? If you are like many people in the area without a whole-house ventilation system, you’ve probably had to relay a lot on temporary heating and cooling solutions.

In the summer, window AC units are noisy and largely inefficient in hot weather. In the winter, you might rely on portable heaters that you have to move every time you change seats, and electric heating is typically extremely inefficient.

Our Comfort Club: A Year-Round Money-Saving Membership

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Many people only get in touch with their local heating and air conditioning company when something is obviously wrong with their comfort systems. If the air conditioner is making strange noises, if the heat doesn’t start up right away, or if there are smells coming from the vents, you contact a local technician.

But often, these are issues that could have been prevented—if only you’d called a technician sooner. Annual maintenance services help to prevent sudden system breakdowns and other major problems with a home’s heating and air conditioning systems. And a maintenance program makes this easy and affordable!
