Does My Ductwork Need Repairs?

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

ductsWindow unit air conditioners are still commonly used, but they really are not ideal for cooling an entire home. They are noisy, they leave your home unsecured, and you have to lug them around the house, install them for the summer, and take them out when the cooling season is over. They’re handy for single dorm rooms and studio apartments, but a central AC is much, much better for whole-house cooling needs. Unless the ductwork is in bad shape, that is.

Leaky or otherwise damaged air ducts can lead to a whole lot of problems for homeowners. Unfortunately, determining if your air ducts are damaged can be a problem in and of itself. After all, the ducts servicing your home are not really all that visible. It’s not as if you want to be looking at them all of the time, right? Of course not. That is why you need to work with trained professionals to pinpoint the source of any leaks and to resolve them completely. We’re the HVAC company in Fairfield, CT to repair your ducts.

Read on for some tips about common warning signs.

When Are Furnace Repairs Necessary?

Monday, March 19th, 2018

furnace-wiringImagine a word in which you know for certain that your heater is always going to be there for you, no matter what. You fire it up when the temperature drops, and you shut it back down once things warm up again. Wouldn’t that be something?  Of course, aside from living in an ongoing fantasy world, you just are not going to be able to enjoy this type of reliability from any heater, your furnace included.

The fact of the matter is that your furnace is a mechanical system, and that means that you will eventually need professional furnace repairs in Fairfield, CT.  When it comes to such repairs, there is one mantra to keep in mind: the sooner, the better.

Monday, July 10th, 2017

However, they are also the types of problems that you may expect to run into from time to time with your air conditioning system.
