Can a Dehumidifier Help You This Summer?

Monday, April 8th, 2019

We’ve heard it 1000 times: “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”. And as cliché as this phrase is, it’s true. Humidity levels during the summer can make it feel as though the temperature outside is much hotter than it actually is. This is because high moisture content in the air makes it much harder for our bodies to sweat, thus making it difficult to cool off. So when this happens, of course, the first thing we want to do is seek relief in the comfort of our homes. So what do you do if the inside of your home is humid as well?

High humidity inside of your home can have a profound effect on your overall comfort and energy efficiency, so it is important to address it. Installing a dehumidifier can help mitigate the effects of high humidity, protecting your furnishings, your health, and your HVAC system in Crozet, VA. In case you are not yet convinced, we’ve outlined just some of the many benefits of installing a dehumidifier below. Keep reading to find out more!

Delaying AC Repairs Has Big Consequences

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

AC-technicianThis summer, with its long stretches of very, very hot weather was trying, to say the least. And now, we’re just about out of its clutches. Many of you are probably already turning your attention toward your home heating systems (as well you should, and come back next time for a great heating tip!). That does not mean that you can just put your air conditioner out of your mind completely, though. Especially if everything is not running smoothly.

While it may seem pretty late in the game to be scheduling AC repair in Crozet, VA, we need to remind you that problems will not just go away because the system has had a few months off. Those problems will be waiting for you at the start of the next cooling season, and they may not be the types of issues that can be resolved with basic maintenance. Let’s use this posts to reflect upon some of the consequences that delaying your AC repairs will reap.

This is a good time to start preparing for the heating season, of course, as it is bound to unleash its icy fury (too much?) before long. This does not, however, mean that you should ignore your air conditioning system.

Before you find yourself back at the beginning of another cooling season, you want to be sure that you are 100% satisfied with your air conditioning in Orange, VA. If this is not the case, then now is the time to try something new.

Work with a Professional HVAC Company

Monday, August 13th, 2018

AC-manifoldIf we were really just using this blog to drum up business for ourselves, then we would actually be telling you to go ahead and service your air conditioner on your own if you are the DIY type.

How to Choose an HVAC Contractor

Monday, July 30th, 2018

man-with-fanThere are certain jobs that you may hire out which won’t require that much consideration as to who can handle it. Maybe you hire some neighborhood kids to shovel your driveway, for instance, or your buddy recommends a friend to handle some light landscaping. Different homeowners are going to have different standards of who they give work to, but there is one area where you can never take chances: the installation and/or servicing of your HVAC system.

You absolutely must work with a professional HVAC contractor in Crozet, VA. There is no other way in which you can be sure that you are working with skilled professionals that you can trust. Of course, not all HVAC contractors are created equal. There is a major difference between earning your license and starting a business, for instance, and establishing yourself as a trustworthy contractor capable of living up to all of your clients’ expectations—if not exceeding them!

What’s Wrong with My Heat Pump?

Monday, July 16th, 2018

condenserHeat pumps are a great option for homeowners interested in enjoying year-round comfort with great energy efficiency.  They operate just like central air conditioners in the summer, meaning that they evaporate refrigerant in order to remove heat from the air in your home during the summer season. In the winter, this process is reversed. Refrigerant evaporates in the outdoor unit, absorbing heat before being compressed to boost its thermal energy, which is then used to heat the interior living space.

Your heat pump is going to put in a lot of working hours over the course of the year. While routine maintenance can address much of the wear and tear that it will incur, it cannot make your heat pump 100% reliable. Nothing will. Eventually, you will find yourself in need of heat pump repair in Charlottesville, VA. If and when you do, be sure to dial our number in order to guarantee that your system is put back on the right track, the right way, the first time.
