ac-unit-with-wrenches-on-itYes, fall is officially here (or at least it will be a few days after we post this) and the temperatures have started to cool down to being merely warm.

Monday, May 15th, 2017

duct-cleaning-before-afterYou may have heard suggestions to have the air ducts in your home cleaned, either from advice on a website (you’re reading one of these now) or from a sales person offering to take on the job for a surprising small amount of money (uh, we’ll get into this later).

The saying that “March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb” acknowledges that when the month begins it is still winter, and by the time it ends (specifically, after March 20th) it is spring.

However, this proverb is often phrased the other way around, and that’s because you never quite know what is going to happen in March. (MARCH MADNESS! That’s the better proverb.) This is a strange month for the weather, and it always has been. These storms could vanish in days and turn to powerful and warm sunshine—and then a cold snap might follow the next week.

How to Choose Qualified HVAC Contractors

Monday, December 5th, 2016

One of the paradoxes of modern living is the “paradox of choice.” It’s really a variation of the adage, “hundreds of channels on TV and nothing to watch.” When there are so many options available, it’s hard to make a decision for fear that you may end up with a substandard product or service.

We’re aware of how this affects the HVAC industry, because anyone with access to an Internet connection can type in a few search terms to locate a contractor—and come up with an enormous list of possibilities. When you face this dilemma, you’ll want a simple answer to the question: “Who is a qualified HVAC contractor?”
