Last Minute AC Repairs to Be Aware of

November 26th, 2018

air conditioner being repairedWinter weather is slowly but surely coming, with nighttime temperatures already pretty chilly! Chilly enough that you may even be using your heating system already. In fact, you probably aren’t going to be using your air conditioner at all as far as this year is concerned. But what if your air conditioner wasn’t exactly working perfectly the last time that you did need to use it? Can you just wait until next spring to have it repaired?

You could, and technically you could also drive a car around the block a few times on nothing but the rims. In other words, it’s a bad idea.

November 12th, 2018

Close-up of the elements of a clean car air filter; dynamic shot using diagonal lines.Well…yes. But we won’t stop there. We’re happy to explain why this is the case, and just what it is that you get from regularly cleaning (if you have a permanent filter) or changing your air filter every 1-3 months as needed.

And this air filter isn’t there to protect your indoor air quality either (despite popular belief) but rather the inside components OF those HVAC systems. So true, it may seem a bit early to be talking about your heating system, but because of the shared importance of your air filter, we feel this is a pertinent topic no matter the time of year.
