It would be great if we had air conditioners that could self-diagnose themselves and then send us an alert through an app on our smartphones to tell us that something is amiss. To be honest, that’s probably not too much of a stretch for the future. Unfortunately, it’s not a reality quite yet.
For now, we do have to rely on other means to warn us that something is wrong with our air conditioning systems. Perhaps it’s a sudden drop in cooling power, or an unexpected rise in your energy bills. Or it might even be that your circuit breakers connected to your AC system are constantly tripping.
One of the most common signs that something is wrong with your air conditioner is that it’s making loud or unfamiliar noises. You know more than anyone the everyday sound of your HVAC systems. If something sounds strange, it’s worth giving our team a call.
So what kind of sound are we talking about? Read on!

Believe it or not, summer is right around the corner. And the last thing you need this coming season is to come home after a long day at work to a baking living space because your air conditioner stopped functioning, right?
Of course, the likelihood of this happening is decreased if you take good care of your cooling system. This begins with professional AC maintenance. During your maintenance session, also referred to as a tune-up, our technicians thoroughly clean, adjust, and inspect your air conditioning system. The inspection portion of this service alerts our team to any AC repair needs you might have, and getting those repair services on your schedule right away will help ensure that your cooling system can handle all that summertime weather has to bring.
But whether or not you’ve already scheduled maintenance (and no, it’s never too late), it’s always a smart idea to be aware of the signs that AC repairs are imminent, and give our team a call if you notice any of the signs we’re about to list below. Keeping on top of your air conditioner repair needs, particularly if you have an older cooling system, will ensure your system functions well this summer.

Professional tune-ups allow our technicians to fully inspect, clean, and adjust components that need it within your air conditioner.
If you haven’t scheduled a tune-up yet, don’t worry! It’s not too late to give us a call. And in the meantime, we’ve shared below some additional tasks you can do to ensure your air conditioner operates efficiently and therefore costs less due to the energy you’ll save.

Air conditioning maintenance is one of those services that people often think of as a luxury—not something that is really needed but is just “nice to have.” We guess we could say that it’s not really needed—not if you don’t want an effectively and efficiently running air conditioner that will last the entirety of its extended lifespan.
AC maintenance is beneficial, and we are going to dive into why this is the case below. Maintenance is when our technicians come in and thoroughly inspect, clean, and adjust the components that need it, helping it to run smoothly and helping to lower your energy costs throughout the months and years. Read on as we uncover some of the main benefits of this service!

Looking to get your home set up with a new air conditioner? If so, this isn’t a job you should be attempting to do on your own.

Each member of our team knows how to approach each part of the installation and get it done correctly, which includes taking factors like sizing and load calculations into consideration. And those are incredibly important. Here’s why:

Did you have heating maintenance done this past fall? If you did, great! Your heater is probably in good shape and ready to make it through the rest of the winter weather we have this season. At least, this is the case if you followed up on repair needs that were recommended at the time. Maintenance is also vital to keeping the efficiency of your heater up. Actually, each year you skip maintenance, your heater can lose about 5% of its efficiency.
Maintenance is not the only way to boost heating efficiency! It’s definitely the first step, and a very important step at that. But there are other things you can do that are affordable and even free, that help improve efficiency and therefore save money. Read on as we uncover a few tips on how to do this.
