We emphasize the importance of scheduling regular AC maintenance in Dover, DE each spring and early summer—it’s that important. And since the summer is rapidly closing in, we want to impress upon all our customers who haven’t yet arranged for their regular air conditioning service visit from our technicians to have it done as soon as possible. It’s simple when you join our Maintenance Agreement Club.

As the weather is getting warmer as we get nearer to summer,
air conditioners are going to get to work—and some of them will start to not
work. We offer 24/7 repair service for our customers when they have an
emergency situation with their air conditioning systems. We know how vital a
cooling system is for the comfort and safety of your family.
But people sometimes have questions about what constitutes a
need for an emergency call. An air conditioner that won’t turn on at all
certainly seems like an emergency. But maybe there is a simple
explanation? Sometimes there is, and we want to help you understand better when
you have an actual AC emergency on your hands and how to tell when there’s a
simple troubleshooting step that will take care of the problem.

When homeowners think about their indoor comfort, they
usually think of their heating and air conditioning: the “H” and “AC” in the acronym
“HVAC.” They often forget about the “V” sandwiched in the middle, standing for “ventilation.”
But that letter is in the acronym for a good reason—ventilation is essential
for comfort in a home and for better indoor air quality. Problems with ductwork
in the ventilation system can lead to poor heating/cooling distribution,
humidity swings, dusty and polluted air, and a plunge in HVAC energy efficiency.

If you’re asking yourself about whether a repair for your
faulty HVAC system is too costly, it’s either because a) your heater is
starting to fail at the end of the season after a long winter, or b) you’re
concerned about your old air conditioning system and if it will manage the
coming summer weather.
In either case, you’re already asking the right question.
Repairs for an HVAC system early on in its service life are usually worth the
price, and many will fall under the warranty. With older systems that are out
of warranty, price becomes a bigger concern. The cost to fix an older AC,
furnace, boiler, or heat pump is often steeper, and you may be on the edge of
purchasing a new system. Is the cost of a repair worthwhile, or is the repair
too expensive and it’s finally time for a replacement system?

When your furnace is running during cold weather, you have a
good idea of what kind of noises it makes. A modern furnace won’t make a
racket, but it does create a blanket white noise of air moving through the
vents. When you’re near to the HVAC cabinet, you’ll be able to hear the burners
running and the noise of the blower fan and its motor.
But if your furnace is making unusual sounds, ones you aren’t accustomed to hearing, you may feel worried something is wrong. Is it an emergency that needs 24/7 services from a Smyrna, DE, HVAC contractor? Or is it maybe nothing and you’re overreacting?

The end of the winter season is when a heating system is
most likely to run into problems. After all, it’s gone through a few steady
months of regular work keeping a house warm against extreme cold. If a heater
had proper maintenance done in fall, it has a strong chance of making it through
to the warmer weather of spring without incident. But nothing can be guaranteed,
and one common trouble a house may encounter with its heating at the end of the
season is uneven comfort.
When heating is uneven, parts of the house will feel colder than normal, while others may feel hotter. Yes, stuffy rooms are as much a warning as cold rooms! Something is wrong with the forced-air heating system that has created this imbalance. It may be a simple error, but in many cases you will need a professional Georgetown, DE, HVAC contractor to locate the problem and fix it.

The weather conditions during March can go through extreme shifts, but it certainly isn’t a time when we can expect to start receiving steady warmer temperatures. But is the month when spring officially starts, and that means it’s also the first month when you should give serious consideration to your household HVAC in Delaware. The air conditioner in your HVAC system must have its regular pre-summer maintenance inspection and tune-up during spring, and arranging for the work in March is a great idea. Our technicians have more open schedule and can easily find a convenient appointment time.

Unless you move out of your house, you will eventually need
to replace the household furnace. No matter how well you maintain a furnace, it
will start to deteriorate from age and wear. Maintenance can help it reach a
long service life, but a time will come when you’ll have to make the decision
that the furnace is too old and needs a replacement.
What is “too old” for a furnace? That’s the big question, and it doesn’t have a straightforward answer. Not all furnaces are identical, nor do they wear out at the same rate. In this post, we can provide details about furnace age and performance to give you an idea about when to consider a new furnace.

Boilers are still around and heating homes because they
offer even and effective heating that often outdoes forced-air systems like
furnaces and heat pumps. The even distribution of heat is one the advantages of
having a boiler in the first place.
But if you have a boiler that isn’t giving you the even heating spread you expect from it, or simply isn’t meeting the target for warmth you need to stay comfortable, you may need to call for heating repair in Delaware to get it fixed. Our HVAC technicians are experts at handling boilers, which isn’t a skill you’ll find at every heating contractor in the area. Whatever issue you’re having with your household boiler, trust that we’ll find the source of the problem and have it fixed.
