Prepare Your Heater for the Coming Weather

September 24th, 2018

furnaceBefore we begin today’s post, we want to let everyone affected by Hurricane Florence know that you are in our thoughts. The aftereffects of the storm are going to be felt for some time, but we know our community and those surrounding it, and we know that we will all band together to put the pieces back in place.

That being said, we are turning our attention away from the stormy weather and toward the coming cold. Now, we may not suffer the extreme chill that they do in parts of the Northeast and Midwest throughout the winter season, but that does not mean that we don’t need great heaters in our homes. And a great heater will only provide a great performance when paired with great heating maintenance in Raleigh, NC!

Read on for some reminders about what routine heating tune-ups can do for you. It may not be quite time to fire up that heater yet, but a look at the forecast will show that cooler temperatures are on their way. Reach out to a member of our team to get your heater back on track.

Let Us Customize Your Ductwork

September 10th, 2018

ductworkThere are few experiences as frustrating as investing in a top of the line HVAC system, only to discover that this system is really coming up short in terms of performance quality, efficiency levels, or both. Just because your system is only working “decently,” as opposed to exceptionally, doesn’t mean that “something is better than nothing”. You deserve better than decent, and we can give it to you. How? In many cases, by ensuring that your ductwork is optimized for your system.

Well, shouldn’t the ductwork installed with my system be the perfect fit?

Ideally, yes. However, we don’t live in a world where everything is ideal (to say the least).

You contact a professional contractor capable of giving you customized ductwork that is ideally suited to your system! We specialize in sheet metal fabrication in Raleigh, NC.

Does Your AC Have a Water Leak?

July 30th, 2018

man-on-couch-with-fanHuh, that’s weird. The AC is leaking water. I didn’t even know that it held water! I’ll just try to find the leak myself and maybe I can plug it up. 

Stop. Right. There.

You are not hallucinating. Yes, your air conditioner may be surrounded by water. Yes, this may be the result of a leak in the system—though probably not exactly in the way that you’re thinking.  The fact of the matter is that, unless you are using an evaporative cooler, your air conditioner does not use water in its operation.

It doesn’t store water.

It doesn’t have a water supply line.

So where the heck is this water coming from?

Well, that is what we are going to be looking at in today’s post! Read on to learn more about why your air conditioner may be standing in a pool of water, and whether or not that means that you need air conditioning repair in Durham, NC.

Susan:

Well, thank goodness for that. I was starting to—

(We hear the system shut back down. Susan and Joe Homeowner both fall to their knees.

Susan and Joe:

How Ductless Air Conditioning Can Save You Money

July 2nd, 2018

ductless-blowerIt is impossible to argue against the fact that the split central air conditioning system remains the most popular of all whole-house cooling systems in use today. The central AC that we all know and love has a lot going for it—and its method of distributing conditioned air throughout an entire house via a centralized system of air ducts is certainly a major improvement over loud, inefficient window units. That being said, there are other options out there to consider.

The ductless mini split is certainly one of the most enticing, even if some homeowners are not yet privy to the many benefits that it has to offer. While they’ve long been dominant in many commercial applications, ductless air conditioning systems have become incredibly popular in the residential sector over the years, too. You can count on us to install your ductless AC and to handle any other air conditioning service in Durham, NC the right way, every time.
