Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Why Is My AC Leaking Water?

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

woman-with-fanWell that’s strange, you think as you step in a puddle surrounding your air conditioning system. It appears that my air conditioner has sprung a leak. Never seen that before. While you are not hallucinating or imagining the fact that there is water surrounding your indoor AC unit, the fact is that your air conditioner does not actually use water in its cooling process. If the system does not contain water, though, where is it coming from? Has a pipe sprung a leak, with the water pooling around the AC?

Not necessarily. You see, while the AC does not actually have water in it to leak, exactly, it may still be the source of this water. Confused enough yet? Then you are lucky that we are here. Today, we’ll explore a few reasons as to why your air conditioner in Ludlow, VT may appear to leak, as well as discuss why it may be a cause for considerable concern.  (more…)

How Fresh Is Your Air Conditioning Filter?

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

man-with-filterHopefully the answer to the question posed in the title of this post is “as clean as it needs to be.” If you have explored this blog or our website, you know that we do not advocate for DIY services when it comes to your HVAC systems. This includes the routine air conditioning maintenance that your system will need to excel in its operation and to function at peak efficiency levels. While the vast majority of your air conditioning maintenance should be left to trained professionals, there is one important task to handle on your own.

This is to keep a fresh air filter in your air conditioner in Bellows Falls, VT. This may sound like a minor point of consideration to you, but trust us. If you fail to keep a fresh filter in your air conditioning system, your air conditioner is going to fail you in a number of ways. The effects may not be instant, and your system may not break down entirely just because you missed a single filter change. Over time, though, you can expect to encounter various problems.

In fact, ductless mini splits can save you money in quite a few ways, three of which we will discuss below.

Monday, April 24th, 2017

temperatures-risingWe are still waiting for the weather to really warm up around here. We have definitely had some warmer days lately, but we’re also not ready to start running our ACs just yet, either. That’s not a bad thing, though. Sure, after our winter season we are all ready to start enjoying warmer weather. That being said, this is a great chance to take care of some serious business, such as scheduling routine air conditioning maintenance.
