When the temperature starts to rise this summer, you might run into an air conditioner problem that puts a serious halt to your comfort. This can be rather alarming, when an air conditioner stops sending out the cool air you expect it to, or doesn’t send out any air at all.

It’s tempting to handle repairs on your own. After all, HVAC technicians are busy and you have no time to waste! Plus, there are dozens of online tutorials, so what can go wrong?

Well, unfortunately, plenty. Attempting repairs on your own could lead to more problems with the air conditioner instead of less, can void the manufacturer’s warranty on the system, can leave you spending way more than you thought you’d have to and can even lead to injury.

Read on to learn just why it’s so important to call on a professional when you need a repair for your air conditioner… any repair!

Although it’s pretty much hot year-round in our area, if you’re reading this blog post it means you used your heat pump in heating mode at least briefly this past winter. So, as the weather warms back up to what we’re used to, you might be ready to switch your heat pump back over to cooling mode.

But what if that just doesn’t seem to happen? A heat pump stuck in one mode or the other is actually a pretty common problem with these systems, especially if they’re aging or haven’t been well-maintained (remember, because this is a year-round HVAC system, it needs biannual maintenance tune-ups).

Read on as we dive into what may be going on if your heat pump won’t switch from heating mode to cooling mode.

When you live in a climate like ours, it’s no secret that you need a powerful air conditioner to keep your family comfortable and safe throughout the year, let alone at the peak of our summer season.

Purchasing a new air conditioner can and should be a very careful purchase, and not one to rush into. You want to ensure you’re working with an experienced team, first off, who will inform you of your options and make sure that your system is properly installed and matched for your specific home.

An overpowered air conditioner can be just as detrimental to energy efficiency as an underpowered one, which is why you should always trust a pro to size your new central air conditioner.

But wait… what if a central air conditioner isn’t your only option? It’s a great option! But you might want to consider going ductless. Read on to learn the ins and outs of both these cooling options in order to help you make a decision about your next cooling system installation.
