Why Annual Heat Pump Maintenance Is Not Enough

We all know how hot and stuffy our summers can get, and in fact that’s probably what we think about for most of the year.

Deciding Whether You Need a New Air Conditioner

Most air conditioners today are manufactured to last 10-20 years, as long as they are professionally installed and well-maintained throughout their lifespan. However, every air conditioner has it limit, and at some point yours will wear down to the point that you have to replace it.

How do you know when you’ve reached this point though? Are there certain signs that it’s time to have your system replaced before the current one breaks down altogether? The good news is that yes, there is. You shouldn’t have to worry about having your AC system break down on you suddenly right in the middle of summer. Continue reading

What Contributes to Air Conditioning Efficiency Loss?

We probably don’t even need to tell you this, but summer is officially here! Temperatures are only going to rise even further in the coming months, and when they do you’ll want to make sure your air conditioner is working as effectively and efficiently as possible.
