“What Do I Do if My AC Compressor Fails?”

Monday, June 15th, 2020

compressor-inside-ac-outdoor-unitIf you’ve been following our blog for very long, you may have seen us refer to your thermostat as the “brain” of your HVAC systems. Well, if the thermostat is the brain, the compressor is the heart of your air conditioner! It’s what allows for the movement of refrigerant throughout the rest of the air conditioner to transfer heat from inside your home to the outdoors. When this compressor fails, the air conditioner fails. Sure, the fans might still run, but no cooled air will come in through the vents.

Since the compressor is such an essential component to your cooling system, and an expensive one to replace, you as a homeowner may be left with the decision about what to do next. Sometimes replacing the compressor is the right call, while other times replacing the whole entire system is more economically feasible. Read on as we help you explore your options. (more…)

Monday, July 15th, 2019

The thing is, today’s homes are built with very tight construction. The reason for this is for energy efficiency—when there are no drafty areas or spots for air to escape your home, it means all the cooling you’re paying for stays indoors. You’re not simply paying for air conditioning that doesn’t actually keep you comfortable.

Where this becomes a problem, is that it can cause the air in your home to become stale and dry. True, dry air isn’t something we deal with a whole lot in our area, but trust us when we say it can become uncomfortable real fast. So, what’s the solution? Well, we encourage you to look into the installation of a whole-home energy recovery ventilator (ERV)—read on to learn more! (more…)
