Around this time of the year, you cannot go a day without using your heating system in our neck of the woods. And all of this continuous use really takes its toll on your monthly budget. Is there a way to lower monthly energy and fuel costs without turning down the temperature to a setting that is downright uncomfortable? Definitely—if you’re willing to work with quality technicians to get your system into shape. Here are 3 ways you may be spending far too much on your monthly bills, and what you can do to solve the problem.
Don’t become another victim of a long-term HVAC equipment rental scheme. Renting a furnace and/or air conditioning system can end up costing you a lot more than purchasing a new one.
By the time winter comes, your home’s furnace will be running full time to keep you comfortable. This means an inevitable increase on your monthly bills.
No matter what type of heating system you own—a boiler, a furnace, or a heat pump—annual maintenance is vital if you expect the system to live out its lifespan efficiently. The steps of a heating maintenance visit vary from system to system, but it generally involves an inspection, cleaning, and adjustment of many of the major components.
Before the autumn weather officially makes its debut, we recommend that you schedule a heating maintenance visit. Professional heating system maintenance involves several steps, including a tune-up, cleaning, and inspection of your system.
We hate to say it, but the warmer weather may soon come to an end. Your air conditioner has done a lot of hard work for you this summer, and it’s about to get a break.
One of the most common air conditioning issues is also one of the most damaging: a leaky system. Water can leak from an air conditioning system and into a home. Depending on the position of the indoor portion of the unit, it may leak into a room of the home and damage valuables or the walls, cabinetry, or flooring.
We’ve heard it time and time again: an air conditioner stops cooling sufficiently and someone says, “Do you think it just needs more Freon?” Freon is a trademarked name by Dupont, a term that is usually used in place of the generic term refrigerant.
In our area, it’s not strange to see pipes and other components of your home freezing—but not in the summer! When your air conditioner freezes, you should treated it as an air conditioning emergency.
Air conditioning systems are complex, which is why you allow experts to take care of any services you need through the years. But there are a few things we think you should know about AC that can actually help you save from month to month.
