WHAT IS A CLEAN AND CHECK?

WHAT IS A CLEAN AND CHECK?

Scheduling a clean & check on your air conditioning unit can help catch possible break downs before they happen. An EPA certified and trained technician cleans the condensing unit coils by hosing them off and using a special cleaner on them. Next, he will check the amp draw of the compressor. Improper pulling of amps is a sign of an inefficient compressor, or your compressor may be going out.  At this point if he feels there is an issue, he will inform you of his findings. Once he continues, he will check the fan motor as well as the capacitor and if needed, oil the motor. System pres...

R-22 REFRIGERANT?

R-22 REFRIGERANT?

R-22 Refrigerant?  Don’t delay! In 1990, United States Congress passed the “Clean Air Act” which became effective on July 1, 1992.  This Act prohibits individuals from knowingly venting ozone-depleting compounds used as refrigerants into the atmosphere.  Freon is a chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) that will damage the Earths protective ozone layer if released.  If your unit is leaking refrigerant it is also leaking oil, (the lubricating oil is in the refrigerant). The laws governing CFC’s now do not allow your HVAC specialist to add this refrigerant to a lea...

SUMMER HEAT

SUMMER HEAT

Summer time is approaching…. Summer heat is going to be here soon…so before you start tinkering with your cooling system it’s important to understand that your air conditioner is a tough piece of equipment. You should leave some of the more mysterious parts to the professionals. You can however, check your filters once a month.

Keep in mind, if you use the filter that reduces allergens they will clog up faster! Also, make sure the exterior condenser is ...

WE LOVE OUR PETS!

WE LOVE OUR PETS!

We give them love, the best pest protection, and spend lots of money on toys, treats, and their special needs; not to mention their food! In return, we receive unconditional love, protection, and (some believe) healing. That said; we need to briefly glimpse into their world, see through their eyes. That HVAC technician who comes to service your furnace or air conditioner? He possess a strange and unfamiliar odor. His voice and mannerisms are un-recognizable. He is scary! Please be mindful of your pet when strangers “invade” their territory, and be courteous to the human entering yo...

DOES MY WHOLE HOUSE GENERATOR NEED ANNUAL MAINTENANCE?

DOES MY WHOLE HOUSE GENERATOR NEED ANNUAL MAINTENANCE?

Generator maintenance is a vital part of owning one. Even if your system has not been used at all for a year, it is going to need servicing. Without regular maintenance, a generator will at the very least not function properly at the time it is needed most. Parts on the inside get dusty and fluids may need to be replaced. Regular maintenance of a whole house generator means having a skilled technician take a good look at the system once or twice a year, and probably after every major period of usage. Some systems may need oil changes, air filters, and of course keeping the area around the unit...

Consider installing a programmable thermostat that will lower your settings while you are away or sleeping. The idea that leaving ...

WHY HUMIDIFY YOUR HOME?

The obvious reasons set aside, I.E. dry skin, static electricity, or dry nasal passages; your home needs to stay properly hydrated in order to maintain the comfort of those living in it.
