The indoor air quality of your house may be poor. This is an educated guess, because numerous homes around the country suffer from poor indoor air quality because they have such poor outdoor ventilation. The troubles can intensify as the fall starts and cooler weather means more people inside and the house closed off to the outside air.
We have methods to help you enjoy better indoor air quality. One of these is the installation of air purifiers in Chapel Hill, NC. There are many different types of air purifiers available, and we can help find the right ones to help you—often paired with air filtration to catch larger particles.
However, this raises the question of how to know you need air purifiers in the first place. We have some answers below:

This is the time of the year when you need to be extra cautious about your air conditioning system. It’s been working hard since you had it professionally maintained back during spring. (You did remember to schedule that service, right? It’s key to getting the best performance from your AC each year with the fewest problems.) Plenty of strain has built up on the cooling system, and it still has months of work ahead before it gets any type of break during cooler weather. If you aren’t attentive to all the signs an AC is malfunctioning, there are some malfunctions that can sneak up on you.
That sounds sinister, but some of the biggest AC problems start small and can fly under your radar. Below we’ve listed a few of the problems that can strike your air conditioner without giving you big warning signs first. Never hesitate to call us for air conditioning repair in Cary, NC—the sooner we get these sneaky problems fixed, the easier and less expensive the repairs will be.

Hot weather is hot weather as far as your air conditioning is concerned—or at least this is what most people think when they think about their AC system at all. The air conditioner does its job as well as it can against the heat.
But this isn’t 100% true. An air conditioner is like any complex appliance: it starts to wear down with use, and changes in external conditions can make it more difficult to do its job and put it at higher risk of failure. This is the situation most air conditioning systems are in during the late summer. This is a time of year when we caution our customers to be on the watch for signs they need Durham air conditioning services. Just because fall is around the bend doesn’t mean you can relax about the performance of your air conditioner. Below are some key facts to know about this time of year.

When you are looking to install an air conditioning system for your building, or to replace an older air conditioning system, you’re going to see the word tonnage referenced often. “What tonnage of system do you think you’ll need for the space?” That sort of thing. It’s standard HVAC lingo, and most people outside of the industry don’t know its specific meaning, except that bigger tonnage has something to do with more cooling power.
We’ll dispel some of the mystery around this term and explain why it’s important for your AC installers to know the exact tonnage necessary for your facility.

Summer is the season of the air conditioner. Most of us think of the sound air conditioners make as part of the soundtrack of the season, and the whirr and occasional hum of our household cooling systems are something we rarely pay attention to.
But when you notice a sound from an AC that isn’t normal, such as a distinct and annoying rattling noise, it isn’t something you should shrug off and try to get used to. Often, rattling sounds like this indicate you need air conditioning repair in Durham, NC from our professionals. The trouble might be simple. Or it could be a warning that your AC is in major trouble that could soon impair its ability to keep your family cool.

You’re concerned about the indoor air quality of your home. Many people are right now, since we’re spending much more time indoors and the summer won’t change that. So along with a reliable air conditioning system (which we can help you with), you’ll also want to know you have clean and healthy air to breathe indoors.
But are the filters you have in place enough? And by this we mean special air filtration systems, not the basic filter on the HVAC cabinet, which isn’t designed to clean the air. The right filters can do a fantastic job removing major air pollutants from circulating in a house. But they sometimes need help from air purifiers. Let’s take a look at air purifiers in Cary, NC and when they’re useful.

We’ve talked about air conditioning efficiency ratings before because they’re one of the first things people look for when considering the purchase and installation of a new air conditioning system. When you think of “energy efficiency,” you usually think of “money savings,” and you may be willing to pay for a more expensive air conditioning system if it rewards you with many years of lower-cost cooling performance.
But choosing an air conditioner based on the energy efficiency rating is trickier than it looks. The most efficient system may not be a cost-effective purchase. It may not even be the right system for your home. The efficiency of a cooling system only matters if the system can work at peak performance, and this is why we strongly recommend the you call our professionals when you plan for new air conditioning in Rolesville, NC.

There are many parts of an air conditioning system that are essential for it to work. If the compressor dies, the AC won’t run, for example. Today we’re going to look at one part—that is actually two parts—that can often fail during a summer season and leave a home without cooling: the fan(s). Specifically, we’re going to see why your fans might stop working and trap you in a boiling home.
