Monday, July 9th, 2018

ductless-blowerIdeally, you’ll already have a great air conditioner in place before the heat of the summer season really makes it a necessity. If you got a bit behind schedule with your installation or replacement, or if an unexpected breakdown has left you in need of a prompt installation, then take a moment to consider an option that you may have overlooked: a ductless air conditioner! And no, we are not talking about those noisy, inefficient units that you put in the window frame.

A ductless air conditioner, or ductless mini split, is indeed a whole-house cooling solution—but it doesn’t need to use ductwork in order to distribute conditioned air throughout your home. This makes it ideal for use in a number of applications, including in those homes that do not already have a system of air ducts in place. Read on, and be sure to work with us for all services related to HVAC in Stamford, CT. We’ll find the right system for your needs.

Why Schedule Late Season Heating Repairs?

Monday, April 30th, 2018

dog-under-blanketThis winter really didn’t want to leave, but it is finally looking like it has taken the hint and is beginning its retreat. That doesn’t mean that your heater is necessarily done with its work for the season, of course. The nighttime temperatures are still pretty chilly, and you may need your heater to take the edge off just a bit for a while longer. Even if you are pretty much done with the system for the season, we suggest that you schedule repairs now rather than wait for the start of next winter.

We obviously deal with a lot of different calls pertaining to HVAC in Stamford, CT, but heating repairs are among the most common.

Furnace FAQ: Gas or Electric?

Monday, September 18th, 2017

furnace-wiringWith temperatures hovering in the mid — and even high — 70’s over the course of the next couple of weeks, it’s safe to say that you are probably not quite ready to pull the plug on your air conditioning system quite yet for the season. That being said, with nighttime temperatures dipping into the 50’s, it won’t be too much longer before the days start to cool off, too. If you are serious about making it through the heating season comfortably, then you may need to replace your heater this year.

If you need a heater for a new home, or if you are replacing one in your existing residence, then you should definitely consider the use of a furnace in Stamford, CT.

Do I Have a Refrigerant Leak?

Monday, August 7th, 2017

man-with-fanThe honest answer to this question is: hopefully not. Just because you have a refrigerant leak does not mean that your air conditioner needs to be replaced entirely — typically — but it does mean that you may actually damage your system seriously simply because you do not realize that there is a leak to begin with. It is for this exact reason that you must schedule air conditioning repairs in Stamford, CT the moment that you realize that there is a leak.

In order to do that, of course, you must first learn to recognize the signs that there is a leak in your system to begin with. This is not always as simple as it sounds. While a refrigerant leak is a big problem, it is one that won’t cause your system to break down entirely immediately. The longer that it goes undetected, though, the greater the risk of serious damage to your air conditioner. We encourage you to keep the following tips in mind so that you can get out ahead of any such problems.
