Air Conditioning Problems You Need to Watch For This Summer

Monday, June 25th, 2018

air-conditionersSummer is prime time for air conditioner problems. This should come as no surprise, considering the amount of strain the average air conditioner is put under during the average summer day. We’re not saying that you should avoid using your air conditioner during the summer, of course. It wouldn’t be good for much if not for keeping you cool during hot days.

All we’re saying is that you should keep an eye out for signs that your system is in need of repairs during the summer season. If you can identify problems with your air conditioner faster, you can get them repaired faster and your system will be better off as a result. Below are some of the more common air conditioner problems that people run into during the summer. (more…)

When Should I Schedule Duct Sealing?

Monday, July 24th, 2017

ducts-in-atticDuct sealing is a professional service that closes up gaps and leaks along the ductwork of a home’s ventilation system. And we have to emphasize professional: this isn’t a job an amateur can handle with a roll of duct tape. Duct tape isn’t even designed to work on ducts and won’t work at creating lasting seals. Professionals must use special equipment to find all the leaks and then use sealants and metallic tapes to restore the airtight seal along the ductwork.

There are a number of times when we recommend you schedule duct sealing in Mills River, NC. You can call us to arrange for this service and we’ll be glad to put you on the schedule. (more…)

The Mitsubishi Multi-Room Heat Pump System

Monday, May 15th, 2017

money-saving-piggy-bankWe recommend using the spring to make any major changes to your home’s air conditioning system. This might be the spring when you decide to put in a new cooling system. Or perhaps you live in an older home that’s never used a central air conditioner (you’ve relied on window units) and you think now is when you should have one installed.

Whatever the reason that you’re in the market for a change to your household cooling system, we advise you consider a Mitsubishi multi-room heat pump system. (And we have a great offer for them right now. See below!) There are many advantages to going with this ductless system for your Mills River, NC heat pump replacement this spring. (more…)

Have That AC Tune-Up Scheduled—And Receive Extra Benefits!

Monday, March 6th, 2017

money-out-the-roofLast week we talked about getting a mid-winter tune-up for your heating system and why it’s a good idea to schedule work on your home’s heater even when winter is coming to a close.

And that topic leads right into today’s. With the end of winter in sight and temperatures starting to rise into the 60s, now is also a great time to consider the regular spring maintenance and tune-up for your air conditioning system. March is a notoriously unpredictable month for weather (“in like a lamb, out like a lion” and the other way around as well) and it’s not yet time to shut down your furnace or other heater—but the AC needs to be ready to get to work soon.

Why Is My Furnace Tripping the Circuit Breaker?

Monday, January 9th, 2017

One of the reasons that furnaces are so popular for home heating is because they are reliable. A furnace that receives regular annual maintenance should encounter few troubles during the winter season, even with high demand placed on it. But sometimes that reliability can vanish, such as when a furnace keeps shutting down because it trips the circuit breaker. (more…)

Early Season Furnace Repairs You May Need

Monday, December 5th, 2016

As the weather continues to cool down in North Carolina, you can expect to have your furnace running more and more frequently. If you’ve already had it tuned-up for the season (and it’s still not too late to arrange it with us through our residential maintenance program!) then you probably won’t run into any major operational problems.

But there’s never any guarantee that a furnace will always work at its best, even with regular maintenance. Below are some of the more common troubles that might crop up right as the furnace starts to get to work for another winter. (more…)

Choosing a Different Type of Heating System for a Replacement

Monday, October 31st, 2016

We’ve recently looked into the question of when you should replace your home heating system, first looking into gas furnaces (the most common type of heater found in homes) and then boilers. In both cases, we focused on replacing a heater with another of the same type: a new gas furnace to replace an old gas furnace, for example.

But this won’t always be the case. When you plan on a new heating installation, you may consider going with a new type of heater altogether. You should always consult with professionals about this, since not every heating system is ideal for all homes. Below we’ve listed some possibilities for changing over to a new kind of home heater. This will help get you started thinking about your options. Call us to assist when you’re ready to make a choice. (more…)

Why Regular HVAC Maintenance Is So Important

Monday, August 15th, 2016

We’re now in late summer, and even though there are still a few months left before it’s time to turn on our homes’ heating systems, now is as good a time as any to discuss regular HVAC maintenance. Not just maintenance for the heating system, but also for the air conditioning system. When you sign up for a regular maintenance program from professionals (such as our Comfort Club), you’re making an investment in your comfort throughout the year, year after year—not just for a single season.
