FAQ: Major AC Problems That Require the Professionals

Monday, September 2nd, 2019

Homeowners are often scared of touching their furnaces or boilers because of how dangerous they can be- but as with any HVAC machine, there can be dangerous problems with your air conditioner as well! Often not as explicit, because let’s face it, a machine that cools is a lot less dangerous than a machine that heats things up. (Nobody is every scared to touch their freezer, but they’d be crazy to touch their stovetop!)

Dangerous problems from an air conditioner can be a lot more insidious than your boiler or furnace. Problems like refrigerant leaks, mold, and an overheating compressor, can still cause major health problems for you and your family if you’re not careful. If any of these problems sound remotely familiar, contact air conditioning service in Syracuse, IN as soon as possible.

How Often Should I Change the HVAC System’s Air Filters?

Monday, May 29th, 2017

pleated-air-filterLast year we wrote a tutorial post about how to change the air filter in your HVAC system. As a brief reminder of why this is important, a clogged air filter can cause the following problems for your air conditioning and heating system:

  • A significant plunge in energy efficiency because the blower motor must strain harder against the obstructions in the filter.
  • Potential damage to the interior of the HVAC system because of dust and dirt infiltration.
  • A general decline in comfort around the house because there will no longer be sufficient airflow.

A question we often hear from customers is, “How often does the filter need to be changed?” We’re glad people ask this, because there’s a misleading belief—one we’ve seen too often wandering around the Internet—that the air filter only needs to be changed once a year. Nothing could be further from the truth! In some cases, an HVAC filter needs to be changed as often as once a month.

March Planning for Your HVAC System

Monday, March 6th, 2017

heating-and-cool-homesMarch. It’s a weird month. The year can’t decide if it’s winter or spring.

The Benefits of Joining Our HomeSavers Club

Monday, December 5th, 2016

One of the basics of keeping a home comfortable and energy efficient through all four seasons is to schedule maintenance tune-ups and inspections for the air conditioning system and the heating system at least once a year. The air conditioning system needs its maintenance done in spring to ready it for the summer heat waves, and the heater needs a fall maintenance visit to prep it for the chills of winter.
