Air Conditioner Summer Checklist

May 27, 2018

When the temperatures start to rise, you want to make sure that your comfort system is operating as efficiently as possible. Here is a list of things you can do around the house to make sure that you stay cool during the summer.  Change Your Filters – Dirty filters really do lower the performance of your AC unit. When the filter gets dirty and starts to restrict airflow, it leads to a system pressure drop. This sets off a chain reaction in the internal components and ultimately causes your system to work harder to reach the settings on your thermostat. Plan on changing the filters every 90 days, or more often if you have pets.  Clean Your Condenser Coils – Usually located in your system’s outdoor unit, the condenser coils can become coated over time with dust, leaves, pet hair, and grass clippings, etc. This hinders performance since the condenser’s job is to transfer heat from indoors, allowing the refrigerant to work properly. Use a soft bristled brush and a hose or pressure washer to clean the coils yourself. Also, you may want to trim and branches or bushes surrounding your outdoor unit.  Clearing The Condensate Drain Line – Over...

Raising the Humidity in Your Charlotte Home

October 9, 2017

The humidifiers we grew up with are remnants of old, clunky technology. Instead, there are DIY ways to increase the humidity in your home.  The noisy machine and smell of menthol is no longer the only option we have. Hang Dry Your Clothes Clothes’ dryers are rarely energy efficient. Besides, the heat wrinkles your clothes, and if you do not change them over from the washing machine, the mildew smell wafts obviously. If you have extra space, you can hang your clothes up to dry. You are saving energy and releasing moisture into the air. Drying Does It The space of a clothes’ line may be impossible. Perhaps, you would rather vent your dryer indoors. Kits are available to draw the moist air indoors, increasing indoor air quality as well as humidity. It also cuts down on heating bills in the depths of a cold winter without having to use a humidifier.

Furnace Check-Ups in Charlotte – Why is it Necessary?

September 26, 2017

When purchasing a new furnace, it is likely that the technician will recommend annual check-ups for the unit. With appointments costing anywhere from $30 to more than $200, many homeowners feel overwhelmed about the cost and where to start and end up skipping the service altogether. This could be dangerous for a few different reasons. First and foremost, skipping your seasonal furnace check-up can void your furnace warranty. This means that if something goes wrong with your furnace, the repair will most likely come out of your pocket rather than the service company’s, and this can get expensive! Secondly, seasonal furnace checkups can help find small problems before they become big ones. During your seasonal check-up, a professional technician will inspect the various components of your heating system. He/she should check the vents for: · any blockages in the vent system · inspect the blower and its parts · check the drainage system for any blocks or leaks · check to make sure the igniter and pilot light are working properly · test the blower motor and compare it to the specifications for your model furnace · check the wiring for any corrosion · check and clean the burner wheel...

Are Expensive Air Filters Worth It?

August 20, 2017
