Monday, February 3rd, 2020

service-timeDid you know that we not only offer routine heating maintenance, but that we also offer a dedicated maintenance program in Asheville, NC? If not, that is a serious red flag for us. Why? Well, for two reasons, really. First of all, if you’re not having your heater tuned up annually, then you are doing it a serious disservice. And, secondly, because you’re doing yourself a major disservice if you fail to enroll in our maintenance program!

Are Your Ducts Dragging Down Efficiency?

Monday, September 30th, 2019

sealing-ductworkWe run our air conditioners very regularly in this area—so much so that we hardly even think about it most of the time. When something becomes so automatic, though, it becomes easy to overlook problems that develop over time, especially when those problems develop in an incremental fashion. This is precisely the case for many homeowners as their air conditioning efficiency begins to slip. With how much we rely on our air conditioners,  you really need to keep efficiency high.

While there are a lot of different reasons why your home cooling efficiency may suffer, a very likely and very common cause is leaky ductwork. If you use a forced-air AC system, then you depend on air ducts to deliver cooled air throughout your home. And, if those ducts are leaking, then you can bet that you’ll see this reflected in your energy costs.  That is why you’ll want a professional HVAC contractor in Asheville, NC to seal up your air ducts!

Monday, September 16th, 2019

AC-manifoldHopefully not, to be honest. We’re not in the business of scare tactics, but we do need you to understand that some air conditioning problems are simply more serious than others. And when it comes to the most serious issues that your air conditioner can encounter, well—a refrigerant leak is right up there. Of course, before you can really understand just why it is that a refrigerant leak is so serious, you must first understand the role that refrigerant plays in your HVAC system in Asheville, NC.

You’re in luck because that’s part of what we’re going to be covering in today’s blog entry. As you’ll learn in the post that follows, an air conditioner without a proper refrigerant charge isn’t really much better than no air conditioner at all. In fact, running an air conditioner with a low charge is a pretty good way to wind up with no air conditioning at all! Don’t let that fate befall you in our hot and humid climate.
