Why Fast Heater Repair Is the Best

Monday, January 10th, 2022

When we talk about “fast” heater repair, we’re not really counting the minutes, or even the hours.

What Is Refrigerant, and What Does It Do?

Monday, August 12th, 2019

close-up-view-of-refrigerant-lineRefrigerant is a necessary component of your air conditioner. Your unit has an evaporator coil that evaporates the excess moisture in the atmosphere, along with the heat, using the refrigerant. The heat energy transfers to the refrigerant which cycles through the system to the condenser coil which will deposit the moisture and heat. This is the gist of the cooling process.

Why You Should Never Skip Your AC Tune-Up

Monday, July 1st, 2019

AC-technicianWe get it. You know that technically your air conditioning system is ready for a tune-up. However, you also know for a fact that your air conditioner is functioning just fine as is. So—why bother with a tune-up? Sure you can wait until—

We’re going to jump in and stop you right there. The fact of the matter is that, regardless of whether or not your air conditioner is functioning at the moment, it needs annual maintenance. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Once a year. Every year. That’s the schedule that you need to stick to. And with good reason.
