First, let’s start by saying we totally understand the
temptation to install your own air conditioner. It will save you money, after
Well, unless it’s a window AC unit or a portable air conditioner, we really do have to advise against this.
The thing is, there are intricate steps to successfully installing an air conditioning system, and if any of the steps are missed or done to quickly, it can lead to problems like a refrigerant leak, inefficient operation, and even a premature system breakdown. Overall, air conditioners are very complex and require a trained and experienced professional to handle.
Of course, if you’re shopping for an air conditioner now, when temperatures are already
rising, we understand the sense of urgency. Rushing into a large purchase like

The short answer to this question is, “yes!” Of course,
we’ll go into more detail. Read on!
You probably don’t think about your ductwork too terribly often, right? We don’t blame you—your air ducts are pretty much hidden from plain view, traveling through the areas between your walls and attic, so of course, it’s only natural that you’d forget about them.
Here’s the thing, though—it would do you well to think about
your ductwork every once in a while. Why’s that? Because problems with your
ducts, even dirty ducts, will directly affect your comfort, your health, and
even the effectiveness of your air conditioner and furnace systems.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy an air conditioner,
and never need to repair it? We wish
this were the case for your sake, but the fact of the matter is that AC systems
suffer from natural wear and tear just like any other appliance.
Of course, if you care for your system properly, you can
certainly help avoid emergency repairs, and potentially even delay other repair
needs. How so? By scheduling professional maintenance and by treating your air
conditioner right. More on that below.

With home health being a hot topic, particularly now, it’s important that we all do what we can to ensure our indoor air quality is as good as it can be. Without the right products and services in place, however, your indoor air quality can actually be worse than that of outdoors. This is particularly true if you have a home that was built within the last few decades. Modern homes are built very “tightly” to allow for maximum HVAC efficiency, by not allowing any conditioned air to escape.
But while no conditioned air escapes, neither does
allergens, pollutants, or even dust and dirt. This is especially lousy news for
allergy and asthma sufferers! Even the healthiest person can start feeling
pretty bad if the air quality in the household is poor.

Tank water heaters are typically what most homeowners are
familiar with when they think of water heaters. They’re large, noticeable, and
sometimes even a bit noisy. Because of their prevalence, most people understand
and suspect that they need service from time to time—particularly maintenance.
Scaling, after all—which is the buildup of hard water
minerals that settles to the bottom of the water heater tank, can have
significant consequences for a water heater. Scaling causes issues with water
pressure, temperature, and even corrosion. The way to solve this is with
flushing, as part of your maintenance session.
But tankless systems don’t have to deal with this, right?
Well… actually… yes, yes they do. Read on to learn more!

A boiler system can only work as efficiently and effectively as it is meant to if it is properly cared for. This means it needs to be professionally installed and serviced by trained and experienced HVAC technicians.
One of these services is maintenance—yearly maintenance will help keep your boiler performing at its best and save you money in repair costs, among other benefits. Of course, even the most well-cared-for boiler may still have repair needs and eventually will succumb to age. What’s important for you to know is how to spot signs of a boiler in distress. We’ve covered the most important signs below.

There are likely a number of individuals out there who would
be willing to do work on your commercial HVAC system, whether it’s your heating
system, air conditioner, or indoor air quality setup. However, do they have any
experience doing a job of this caliber? Sure, a general handyman hired by your
commercial building’s manager may be able to tighten a loose component or fix a
small plumbing leak from a drippy faucet, but they simply do not have the
training and expertise that professionally trained commercial HVAC

If you’re like most homeowners in our area, you use a
furnace heating system to keep your living space warm during the winter.
Gas-powered furnaces are the most popular type of residential heating system
across the country, after all.
They not only produce a large amount of heat, but they do so at less expense than electric furnaces because natural gas costs less than electricity per unit.
However, natural gas appliances do come with a risk. That’s
not to say they’re inherently dangerous. But if you skip maintenance or don’t
keep up on small repair needs, problems can grow and you can end up with a
dangerous situation on your hands. One of these possible situations is a
cracked heat exchanger.
