two-techs-wearing-face-masks-working-on-air-conditioner-outside-unitScheduling repairs for your central air conditioning system is one of those professional services you don’t want to put off any longer than you have to. And we understand the temptation to do so, especially if your system is still running (just not great) or if repairs really aren’t in your budget right now.

We encourage all of our customers to take good care of their system, and to call for repairs as soon as they notice signs that they’re needed. But, how do you know when your air conditioner needs repair? After all, you aren’t an air conditioning expert. Well, that’s okay, we are! Read on as we uncover some signs that it’s time for you to give us a call and go ahead and schedule those AC repairs.

Don’t Ignore These End-of-Season Heater Repair Needs

May 17th, 2021

woman-wrapped-in-blanket-sipping-from-mugSummer is almost upon us! It might seem silly to even be thinking about our heating systems this time of the year, but if you’ve been here all winter long and into spring, then you were using yours pretty consistently, right? Our heaters do certainly get a lot of work, and therefore they need an adequate amount of care.

This means maintenance, first and foremost. You should be doing some small maintenance tasks on your own, such as changing out the air filter and making sure the heating system itself and your vents are unobstructed so airflow isn’t restricted. But you should also be scheduling professional heating maintenance once a year.

During this service, our technicians thoroughly inspect, clean, and adjust components that need it, all while looking for small repair needs and alerting you to them so you can get them on your schedule sooner rather than later. If you had this service done already last fall, then you may already know what repair needs you have or maybe you already took care of them. But if you skipped the tune-up, you should heed these end-of-season repair needs now so you don’t have to worry about an ineffective heater next fall. Continue Reading

Why You Should Only Trust a Pro for Your Drain Cleaning

April 19th, 2021

drain-with-water-going-downWhen you have a clogged drain in your home—one of the most common plumbing problems there is—it’s easy to look for a quick fix. You can hope for the best, but unfortunately, that quick fix isn’t so quick after all.

There are some instances where a little bit of “do-it-yourself” (DIY) work can solve problems. There are other times, however, that it is better to leave the job to trained professionals. Drain clogs can fall into the former category, but when we talk about relieving a drain clog on your own, we don’t mean reaching for that bottle of store-bought drain cleaner you got at the hardware store. We mean using a plunger and a little bit of ‘elbow grease,’ and when that’s not enough it’s time to call a pro.

Maybe you already own a portable generator. These systems come in handy for things like heating a cooktop on a camping trip or a tailgate party. They’re not recommended—nor even considered very safe—for powering up your entire home in the case of a power outage. No, for that you’ll want a whole-house generator.

But should you have one installed? Keep reading! Continue Reading
