Major Benefits of Air Conditioning Maintenance

Monday, May 4th, 2020

AC-technicianFor reasons well beyond our understanding, there are still homeowners out there that fail to schedule professional air conditioning maintenance on an annual basis. Even more perplexing is the fact that they fail to do so when our technicians are here just waiting to ensure that they get the best that their air conditioners have to offer. Let us be blunt about this. Routine air conditioning maintenance is, without exception, the best thing that you can do for your air conditioner in Southern Vermont.

Now, we realize that you don’t necessarily need your air conditioning system just yet. However, we also know that homeowners too often wait longer than they should schedule routine maintenance, sometimes not even doing so until they realize that problems are brewing. Problem is, that’s when repairs are needed, not maintenance. Today, we’re going to share with you some examples of why you really cannot, should not, must not overlook the need for annual AC maintenance! (more…)

Don’t Forget About Your Heater’s Filter!

Monday, November 18th, 2019

filterWhen you live in Vermont, you have to deal with the winter season.  It’s coming around each and every year,  and when it comes around, it can really stick around. But you don’t need us to tell you that our winters can be pretty intense. What you might need reminding of, though, is one of the most effective ways in which you can set your forced air heater up for success. That is by changing the air filter as needed. What does “as needed” mean in this case?

Well, typically, it means every 1-3 months.  That’s not a hard and fast rule, as some homes will require changes more frequently. However, no home should really push it beyond that 3 month mark. Why is changing the filter so important? That’s the focus of today’s post, so just keep reading to learn more. Suffice to say, it has major implications for your heater in Ludlow. Don’t put this critical system at risk.

Protect Your Home and Your Family with a Generator

Monday, October 7th, 2019

generatorIt’s just barely October, and not all of you are going to want to hear this, but—winter is on its way. Winters in Vermont can be beautiful, but they are also a lot of hard work and they can be quite stressful at times. If you ask us, it pays to take any measures possible to reduce that stress in any way possible. One recommendation that we cannot make strongly enough is that you take advantage of a whole-house generator.

A whole-house generator works much the same as a portable generator in principle, but on a much larger scale. While portable generators are great for power radios and other equipment for camping trips or tailgating events, they are not going to power your entire home when the power goes out due to winter storms. A whole-house generator can do just that, though. Or, at least, it can when it is properly installed and serviced. To ensure that this is the case, schedule your whole-house generator services with our electricians in Ludlow, VT.

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!

A Short Cycling Heater Is Not “Good Enough”

Monday, January 14th, 2019

just-right-temperatureThere are areas in this country where the heating system is not nearly as important as the air conditioner. Even in those areas with consistently cool weather in the winter season, the heater is not always a top priority. It can be easy to overlook issues with one’s heater as attention is diverted to more pressing matters. Here in Vermont and throughout the northeast, of course, few matters are more pressing than heating issues during a frigid winter cold snap.

Even so, some people do seem to take a “good enough” attitude when it comes to their home heating systems. Don’t fall into this trap! If your heater in Southern Vermont is not functioning properly in any way, you may be on the precipice of a slippery slope. Once you start sliding down that slope, it can be extremely difficult to stop the descent. Work with our team to have any necessary heating repairs in Ludlow completed as soon as possible. (more…)
