It’s Time to Upgrade Your Thermostat!

May 2nd, 2022

Your thermostat serves as the “brain” of your HVAC system. It communicates to what would otherwise be a mundane piece of cooling equipment, and turns your AC system into a monitoring device. Once the temperature reaches above the line where it’s comfortable, your AC switches on at the direction of your thermostat and starts cooling things off.

That’s why we think it’s so important to talk about thermostats, especially thermostats that are old or outdated. Newer temperature monitoring systems are able to be programmed to curb energy loss and cool your home in a more efficient manner.

3 Solutions for a Short Cycling AC

April 18th, 2022

ACs typically have a regular cycle of turning on and off that will vary based on exterior temperatures. Short cycling is when an air conditioner runs for short, frequent bursts, switching off and back on at intervals of five minutes or less.

These problems occur as a result of something inhibiting an AC unit from completing a full cooling cycle. They can be attributable to a number of causes, such as a clogged air filter, a refrigerant leak, or a system that’s too large for the home it’s in.

Short cycling is a concerning behavior to see in AC units. Not only is it usually a symptom of a larger problem, but it also wears out the outside unit’s compressor. This can end up causing a lot of trouble down the road, as compressors are costly to repair and often result in homeowners being inclined to replace their entire outside unit.

March 7th, 2022

Invisible, odorless, and without many tangible characteristics, it’s easy to take the air we breathe for granted.
