Unique Ductless Needs to Be Aware Of

Monday, July 19th, 2021

When it comes time for you to choose a new air conditioning system for your home, there are so many options to choose from, right? To make sure that your AC system of choice works as effectively and efficiently as it is meant to, you’ll need to ensure that you work with a professional to find one that fits your specific home and budget.

One of the options you’ll find in your research is the ductless HVAC system.

Rather than utilizing a system of air ducts to function–connected to a single indoor air handler and outdoor unit–a ductless system does not use ductwork. It’s comprised of a single outdoor unit and up to 4 indoor air handlers, which can be discreetly mounted up on the walls in the rooms where you need cooling (or heating).

If you already have a ductless system, you’re familiar with this concept. If, however, you aren’t a ductless owner yet and you’re considering it, then you should learn about the unique needs your system may have.

We want our commercial customers to know about current challenges we are facing obtaining HVAC equipment and parts due to the effects of the pandemic and disruption in the supply chain.

If you currently have needs for heating and cooling system replacements or installations, we recommend scheduling the work as soon as possible. We will work with your individual needs and budget to find a solution that works for you. If you already have scheduled an installation, you need take no further action—we’ll contact you about the service if we haven’t already. 

If you have repair needs, we advise you to plan ahead and schedule an appointment now. This will help ensure we can provide the necessary equipment and fixes for your facility’s HVAC systems.

Summer is officially here, and if you haven’t done so already, now is the perfect time to ensure that your air conditioning system is up to the job of getting you comfortably through another warm season.

If your current cooling system isn’t up to this task, then now is a great time to replace it… before temperatures warm up too much more and you potentially face a sudden breakdown when you need the system the most.

But of course, if your system is on the newer side (less than 10-15 years old), then it could be that you just need a repair. So where do you draw the line? Read on to find out.

Summertime is right around the corner. This means that now is the perfect time to check on your air conditioner and make sure that it is up to the task of getting you through the season comfortably and affordably.

If you’re worried that it’s not up to the job, then it’s a good idea to go ahead and invest in a replacement system now rather than waiting for it to break down completely in the middle of summer. No Modesto area home should be without their central air conditioning system on one of the hottest days of the year!

But how exactly do you know it’s time for that upgrade?

Why Do AC Air Filters Need to be Regularly Changed?

Monday, April 26th, 2021

You may have heard an HVAC technician tell you at some point that your air conditioner’s air filter needs to be changed. Have you wondered why? Maybe you assumed that a dirty air filter is an issue because it doesn’t protect your indoor air quality when it’s too clogged up. This isn’t quite right, though.

It’s true, when this air filter gets clogged up, it won’t be able to draw in particles from the air. However, that’s not even the purpose of this particular air filter. No, this air filter is in place to protect the interior components of the HVAC system itself. While it doesn’t hurt your indoor air quality, it’s actually in place to protect the integrity of the air conditioner.

So what happens when you don’t change your air filter regularly (every 1-3 months)? The following:

Monday, June 8th, 2020

As temperatures begin to warm up even more and remind us that summer is well on its way, we’re starting to use our air conditioners on a more consistent basis. That said, our cooling systems go through a lot over the years, accumulating wear and tear faster than systems in cooler areas of the country. This also means they may even require repairs more often.

To avoid the biggest and most emergent of repair needs, it’s important that you schedule maintenance at least once a year for your cooling system. During this service, our pros will fully inspect clean, and adjust your system to ensure its efficient and effective operation. But with or without professional maintenance, your cooling system may show signs that it need repair—and often times those signs are in the form of strange noises. Read on as we uncover some sounds you should never hear from your AC system and what they mean.
