Monday, September 27th, 2021

Nobody likes to get sick, right? Unfortunately, the things that make us sick are typically too small to see or feel: viruses, bacteria, and other microscopic pathogens. These can all cause a wide range of problems for both our health and comfort.

Staying inside our homes seems like the most logical way to stay healthy these days, but unfortunately without the right indoor air quality products and services in place, your indoor air quality can actually be worse than the quality of the air outside. Maintaining great indoor air quality is critical, and it’s also very possible!

Perhaps you’ve already considered the installation of an air purifier such as UV germicidal lights, also referred to as UV lights or a UV air purifier. This system is effective at removing pathogens from your ductwork before they even have a chance to enter your indoor air. But would the installation of one be beneficial for your home?

Maintenance helps prevent 85% of repairs your air conditioner may ever need by allowing our technicians to thoroughly inspect the system and alert you to any smaller wear-and-tear needs the system has before they grow into bigger emergencies. So in short, yes, maintenance really helps you avoid AC repair. Of course, it’s easy for us to say that, but a little bit harder to feel reassured as a homeowner, right?

We understand. This is why we’ve decided to share with you the many benefits of maintenance, below, and why you should look into enrolling in our Energy Savings Agreement (ESA).

With summer right around the corner and temperatures warming up, it’s time to start thinking about our air conditioners. If you have a heat pump system, this means scheduling a tune-up for the system, even if you had one done last fall. The reason for this is because a heat pump is a year round system. So while a standard central air conditioner or furnace needs maintenance once a year, your heat pump needs it every six months.

Whether you had maintenance done already or not though, the fact is that if you went to turn on your heat pump to cool you off, and it’s stuck in heating mode, you have a problem on your hands! Read on to learn what’s going on.

You may have heard or seen us say at one point that it’s important to change out your HVAC air filter every 1–3 months. We aren’t just throwing this out as a random suggestion. We are offering this tip as a way for you to get the most effective and most efficient use out of your furnace or air conditioner. And considering how much we have to use both around here, chances are you’d like to do anything to keep your heater running powerfully and affordably, right?

Well, one method of doing this is by performing a small maintenance task—changing the air filter. You might be surprised to find just how important this small component is. It’s about much more than protecting or improving your home’s indoor air quality. In fact, that is not the purpose of this air filter at all. While there are whole-house air filtration systems available to improve IAQ, the furnace air filter is in place to protect the furnace itself from debris that can get inside and damage its components.

Watch Out for Compressor Problems With Your AC

Monday, August 31st, 2020

What’s the most important part of your air conditioner? This is a bit of a trick question, since all the components in a modern air conditioner are important for it to operate efficiently and effectively. However, there’s one part that deserves special consideration—the compressor. There are several reasons why:

  • The compressor is the literal heart of the air conditioner, since it is what causes refrigerant to circulate through the system and move heat from inside the house to exhaust it outside. Without a working compressor, an AC is merely a large indoor fan.
  • The compressor consumes the most energy of any part of the AC. This is where the energy from the electrical system is applied to the refrigerant so the air conditioner can do its job.
  • A broken compressor is an expensive part to replace. So expensive that if the compressor is no longer under warranty, it’s more cost-effective to have the entire air conditioning system replaced instead.

Making sure the compressor is in good shape will help you avoid expensive issues with your AC. Below is a list of signs of a compressor in danger so you’ll know when to call our technicians for AC repair in Chambersburg, PA.
