Heater Maintenance Now?

November 16th, 2020

Yep, we know that temperatures are starting to get frigid. We know that soon homeowners will be seeing their breath in the air, the snow will fall, and their heaters will be on full blast. People out there are probably focused more on heater repair than heater maintenance, right?

Our team isn’t yet inundated with call after call for broken-down heating systems, which means there’s still time for heating repairs and maintenance in Queens. And today we’re going to focus on why it’s so vital that homeowners get their systems tuned-up today.

Still with us? Good. Keep reading, we promise that we’ll get to the big picture soon.

Duct for Cover! The Problems with Ducts in Disrepair

November 2nd, 2020

We could talk for hours about air ducts. Seriously, these parts of our HVAC systems might not seem like that big of a deal, but they’re special places. They are responsible for transporting the cooled or heated air from an HVAC system directly into a home. Without them, an HVAC system would just push an uneven flow of air from wherever the system was, leaving certain rooms uncomfortable.

What can possibly go wrong with air ducts? Can’t anyone just use duct tape to clear up the leaks and gaps? Plenty can go wrong with the air ducts in a home, and duct tape is far from the best solution. In fact, duct tape is inappropriately named because it’s so bad at solving air duct issues.

Call our team for duct services in White Plains, NY as we talk about the problems people in our area face every year.

4 AC Noises Never to Ignore

September 7th, 2020

What kind of noises does an air conditioner make? If anyone out there said “gentle whooshing noise of air coming from a vent” or “a clicking sound when it started up or stopped,” then they would be right. However, if they started saying things like “buzzing” or “rattling,” then there’s something we need to address.

AC Efficiency Guide: Ways to Save

July 13th, 2020

What does efficiency mean? In the HVAC industry, efficiency means energy consumption in relation to cooling or heating power. An efficiently running air conditioner or heater will run while consuming as little energy as possible. This term is important because it signals the need to keep operating costs low and gives homeowners a clear idea of how much a specific type of AC unit or heater will cost to run.

What many contractors don’t tell homeowners is that there are additional ways to increase efficiency and lower the energy consumption of HVAC systems. These aren’t things that anyone needs to purchase, they’re just simple behavioral changes. While we go into detail about these nifty efficiency tips, make sure to call our team for air conditioning repair in New Rochelle if an air conditioner starts consuming more energy than it should.
