Monday, September 16th, 2019

Humidity can be annoying, but as we end the cooling season it’s important to talk about the indoor air quality of your home during the winter. It’s easy to tell when your home is too humid in the summer, but it’s harder to tell when your home isn’t humid enough in the winter.

5 Most Common Problems with Ductless AC

Monday, September 2nd, 2019

While we do recommend ductless air conditioners fairly often, no AC is without its fair share of problems. That being said, the problems with ductless AC units can basically happen to any type of air conditioner, and they’re not really that bad when it comes to the extent of the problems. We’re not talking about explosions or issues that could set half of your house on fire. Nope, just a leak here and there or a clog in the condensate drain.

Why is that so? Well, for starters, ductless air conditioners are well made and hyper-efficient units. There’s a reason we recommend these heat pump systems so frequently. Even when they break down and everything that can go wrong with them does, there are still multiple air handlers to one system that allows them to keep cooling your home. For everything else that goes wrong with your ductless AC, you can contact your friendly neighborhood technician for AC repair in Cherry Hill.

So, let’s take a look at the common problems with ductless air conditioning.

technician-inspecting-furnaceTemperatures are still chilly for now. But with spring on its way very soon, you know how fast the weather can turn. Soon enough, you’ll need your air conditioner on a regular basis in order to stay comfortable in your home.

But neglecting your heating system when you actually need work done on it can be detrimental to the system, leading to potential safety hazards if you’re using a gas powered system, and leading to the possibility that your system will completely die on you next fall when you need it again.

But around here, we still have plenty of cold weather to contend with in the coming weeks. So facing a broken down heater is likely the last thing you want to do.
