Why Is There Ice on My Cooling System?

Monday, June 29th, 2020

AC-techniciansIf you find ice on your air conditioning system, you may actually mistakenly think that it is a good sign at first. After all, your cooling system is there to, well, keep you cool! And what could be cooler than ice? Unfortunately, ice on an air conditioner is actually indicative of a problem, and a potentially serious one. Remember, while your AC is there to keep you cool, it is not a freezer! If it’s generating ice, there’s a problem.

In today’s post, we’re going to review some of these potential problems, including a couple that you can resolve on your own. There is at least one major potential cause of the problem that you’ll need a professional to handle, though—and we hope that it won’t be the cause of your specific problem. As always, if you do require professional air conditioning repairs in Southern Vermont, ours is the number to dial. Our technicians will handle your problem the right way, the first time. (more…)

Monday, June 15th, 2020

What’s Causing Your AC Inefficiency?

Monday, June 1st, 2020

money-in-grassEven in Vermont, where temperatures are much more well-known for the extreme cold than the heat, a reliable air conditioner is an invaluable resource. Summer may take a while to get going, but when it does, it can hit pretty hard. That’s why an inefficient air conditioner is just as big a deal as an inefficient or unreliable heater. It may not see quite the same level of use, but you still don’t want to be overpaying for your comfort.

There are a lot of different reasons why you may run into low efficiency levels with your air conditioning system. Some are quite simple to deal with. Others require professional intervention and may pose a real threat to the overall health of your air conditioning system. Today, we’ll explore some common causes of AC inefficiency so that you can know what you might be dealing with. In most cases, though, remember that working with an AC professional in Southern Vermont will be necessary.

Keep Your AC’s Filter in Mind This Summer

Monday, May 18th, 2020

air-filterHere in Vermont, winter has been known to overstay its welcome from time to time. Even those of us used to such shenanigans will admit that accumulating snow post Mother’s Day is really starting to push it, though. With that in mind, we are going to turn our focus toward warmer thoughts in today’s post, and talk about your air conditioning system. More specifically, we are going to talk about the air filter in your home cooling system.

There are some common misconceptions about this air filter, including its primary objective, that we’d certainly like to put to rest. We’d also like to help you understand just how vital it is that you keep that air filter in great working condition. That means changing it out when needed. And that is a job that is much of less of a hassle than some homeowners seem to think! In fact, it’s probably the single most important AC-related task that you yourself can handle.

Taking Stock of That Old Air Conditioner

Monday, April 6th, 2020

ACLast time around, we recommended that you take a few minutes to take stock of your home heating system, now that we are slowly but surely (admittedly, more slowly) moving into the warmer time of the year. As you consider how your heating system performed this past winter, we also encourage you to think further back and consider how your air conditioner functioned last cooling season. It may seem premature, but look at it this way—you don’t want to be thinking about it when the temperatures have already risen!

Spring is a great time to go ahead and replace your air conditioning system in Southern Vermont. Even if you’re not planning to replace, you’ll be scheduling routine AC maintenance anyway. Of course, you don’t want to tune up an AC that you’re going to decide to replace in just a couple of months anyway, right? So keep the following in mind, and remember—you can count on our team to handle any and all AC services that you may need.

Is Your AC Ready for Replacement?

Monday, August 26th, 2019

ac-technicianGeez, summer isn’t even over yet then we’ve got all winter to get through. Why are we talking about replacing ACs already?

Well, because it pays to be prepared. If your air conditioner is struggling to get through the end of the summer, and repairs are no longer justified due to age or overall dissatisfaction with the system, why wait until next summer? Doesn’t it make more sense to get out ahead of the problem, rather than to wait for summer to be on the horizon once more?

Even if you’re not necessarily thinking about replacing your system immediately, it is always a good idea to keep some reasons for replacement in mind. When you get used to a “pretty decent” performance from your air conditioner, it can be easy to forget that you deserve so much more! In today’s post, we’ll cover some reasons why homeowners might want to seriously consider an AC replacement. We’re here for your air conditioning services in New Hampshire. (more…)

3 Benefits of Central Air Conditioning

Monday, July 29th, 2019

AC-unitI’ve thought about adding central air conditioning to my home, but I just haven’t taken the plunge. How beneficial could it really be over my window—

Sorry to interrupt, but the answer is: a lot. Comparing central air conditioning to window units is like comparing your favorite fruit to that same fruit after it’s been sitting in the compost for a couple of weeks.

In today’s post, we are going to cover 3 reasons why you should opt for central air conditioning in New Hampshire. Before we do, we want to highlight one major difference. A central air conditioner needs to be professionally installed. And when you invest in something as major as a whole-house cooling system, you want to know that you’ve got the best people on the job. That means working with us. From the sizing of your system to its design and integration into your home, you can count on our team to do the job right, right from the start.  (more…)

Monday, May 20th, 2019

AC-technicianOkay, you’ve got your air conditioner all tuned-up for the upcoming cooling season. Maybe you even replaced an old AC with a brand new, more efficient model. Should be smooth sailing from here, right?

Well, not necessarily.

We’re not the gloom and doom type, mind you, but we are realistic. We’ve been in this industry for many years, and the fact is that air conditioning problems are inevitable. The key to a successful AC experience isn’t to avoid problems entirely, but to address them promptly when they do develop.

That means that you need to know what to look (and listen, and feel!) for. Here are some tips to help you spot problems early on. (more…)

Are You Ready for a New AC Experience?

Monday, April 8th, 2019

thermometer-in-the-redLook, we know that the temperatures outside are still pretty far from warm, let alone the level of heat that would require your conditioning system’s service. Compared to even just a week or two ago, though, it’s clear that temperatures are on the upswing. Don’t wait much longer to take stock of your air conditioning system. In our last post, we talked about getting your home ready for the cooling season. What we didn’t touch upon was potentially replacing your AC.

Tuning up your existing air conditioning system in Ludlow is definitely a must if you plan on running that air conditioner for even just one more year. If you’re not certain that this is your plan, though, then it is definitely time to start thinking about your replacement. Don’t wait until it’s the hottest time of the year and your system has broken down before doing so. You’ll run the risk of fighting for an appointment during the busiest time of the year!
