Summertime Humidity: Here’s What to Do

Monday, June 8th, 2020

Humidity is the bane of comfort during the summer. Homeowners will complain until the sun goes down about scorching hot temperatures, but very few people know the uncomfortable effects of humidity and how it can contribute to the breakdown of your air conditioner. Let us explain.

Humidity refers to the amount of water vapor in the air. During the summer, when temperatures are high, humidity levels also rise which leads to some adverse effects that can make the climate feel even more uncomfortable. Air conditioners then have more trouble cooling your home and they can begin to fail if you’re not careful. Luckily, there are HVAC options in Cherry Hill, like dehumidifiers, that can address the water vapor issue and lead your home to be more comfortable.

It’s Not Too Late to Get AC Maintenance

Monday, May 11th, 2020

If you’ve forgotten to get AC maintenance and you’ve already started worrying about repairs for the summer, we’d like to let you in on a little industry secret. Sure, maintenance during the springtime might be better in general, but it really doesn’t matter when you get your AC tuned-up as much as it matters that you get it done at all. AC maintenance is a vital tool for combatting a system’s old age, problems that will arise in the future, and increasing efficiency levels.

The problem we encounter more often with homeowners is not that they had maintenance performed on their air conditioner at the wrong time, it’s that they forgot to have it performed at all. This means that when your AC repair in Cherry Hill, NJ is much more expensive than you thought it would be, it’s because your system hasn’t been maintained properly.

So, let’s avoid that with maintenance today.
