Summer will be here
before we know it, which means that right now is a great time to check if your
air conditioning system is up to the task of getting you through the season. If
the system you’re using now isn’t up to this task, it’s better to upgrade it
now than to wait for it to just fully break down on you—especially since that’s
most likely to happen at the peak of summer heat.
You shouldn’t be
without an air conditioner any longer than you need to be in the middle of one
of the hottest days of the year!

some signs that it is, in fact, time to replace your air conditioner.
Well, it means your system is short-cycling, but is that a
bad thing? Well, yes. There is never a circumstance in which short-cycling is
normal. It’s a sign that your air conditioner is not functioning as it should
be. In fact, it could mean that your cooling system is in need of major work.
However, it’s not always indicative
of a serious problem. So why worry about it?
Because, while your air conditioner might not break down
entirely right away, and even if the issue is relatively simple to fix, continuing to run a short-cycling HVAC
system is going to negatively impact that system and you in a number of ways! We
really can’t stress this enough—no problem, minor or not, should be ignored.
Keep reading to learn more about what causes this symptom, and the toll that
short-cycling takes on your system.
You won’t meet a lot of longtime Nashville residents who
aren’t painfully aware of how hot and humid our summer climate is, and how
vital air conditioning is to the comfort of our homes and buildings. Air
conditioning is necessary for comfort sure, but it’s vital to making your
living space even bearable over the summer.
But do you use your air conditioner as efficiently as you
can each year? The good news is, you can make some small changes in your home
and with your cooling practices that can boost AC efficiency, and as a result
save energy and subsequent money, as well.
Temperatures are staying cool for now, but if you’ve lived in the Nashville area for even just a year, you know that when summer comes, it hits hard, and you want to make sure that your air conditioner is very well prepared. One of the most important things you can do to ensure this is the case is to schedule preventive maintenance.
Routine professional maintenance ensures that your AC system
is ready for the added strain of summer. Delaying or skipping maintenance will
make it more likely that you’ll be facing problems by the end of the cooling
season or before. Keep reading to learn more about this service and its
Both your central heating and air conditioning systems rely
on a system of air ducts to do their job. These systems cool or heat the air,
and then blow that air through the ductwork to the various rooms in your home.
They’re typically located behind walls, in your attic, or other out-of-sight
areas so they can do their job as unobtrusively as possible.
This is great, however it makes it difficult to spot when
problems, like leaks, occur. The good news is that the HVAC professionals on
our team can address the problem of leaking ducts quickly and efficiently.
Before we can do that though, you of course need to be able to spot the signs
that something is amiss to begin with (or just give us a call for duct testing
If you’re like many homeowners in our area, then you may very well be using a furnace as your heating system of choice. Since the furnace is the most common type of residential heating system out there—ahead of boilers and heat pumps—it’s the one we get the most calls about. Furnaces can provide powerful heating and reliable performance, but just like any other complex mechanical system, furnaces can malfunction and as a result require professional furnace repairs in Nashville, TN.
Fortunately, you needn’t look any further than our team to
get those services, but we know that some furnace problems can be tricky to
find for the untrained eye. We’d like to help you detect problems early on, so
you can get our technicians out to help you before you’re stuck with a
completely malfunctioning or broken down heater when you need it the most.
After all, winter isn’t over quite yet! If you notice any of the following
signs, please make sure your next step is giving us a call.
If we had to guess, we’d assume that you have no trouble
maintaining your car a couple times a year. It’s an important investment, after
all. It’s probably one that you can’t imagine being without for very long, so
you want to take care of, right? Besides, without routine tune-ups, it can’t
remain safe to operate.
Well, this logic needs to be applied to your heating system,
too. This is especially true in regards to a gas-powered furnace. But many
homeowners still neglect this and skip their furnace tune-up. Your heating
system needs love and care though! In the form of a quality Nashville maintenance
program. Be sure to schedule your maintenance, and in the meantime, check
out the reasons why tune-ups are so important.
In the grand scheme of HVAC services, air
duct cleaning probably seems pretty minor. But you actually might be
surprised by how beneficial it can be. Sure, your ductwork seems like just a
minor part of both your heating and cooling systems, but ducts are pretty
important to the functionality of both.
In order to keep your various climate control systems
operating as they should, and keep
your indoor air quality at an acceptable level this season, be sure to get your
ducts cleaned if they haven’t been within the last few years.
