So, if yours is broken or you even suspect that something is wrong with it, the time to fix it is now! Otherwise, you could be caught off guard by sudden repair needs or even a broken down air conditioner.

Monday, April 1st, 2019

ac-maintenanceAt the office, everyone keeps asking, “Comfort Bear, aren’t you excited? Winter is over!”

To be honest… No, I’m not. Winter is the only time of year that I can feel comfortable! I’ll have no choice but to blast my AC as soon as temperatures start rising. If my home isn’t colder than an igloo, you can bet that I won’t be happy.

What’s that? I should just cut my hair? Nope, not happening!

So, if I don’t want to suffer through the heat this summer, then I’ll need to make sure my air conditioner is ready for the season. After all, firing up your AC without any maintenance is just asking for it to break down on you at the worst time!

Comfort Bear here. Let me tell you something about my cousins from the Arctic:

If you humans had a sense of smell that good, you might be able to sniff out a fishy HVAC contractor. A bad HVAC contractor is a huge loss of both time and money, but it can be difficult to spot them.

Monday, August 20th, 2018

duct-cleaningDuct cleaning is not one of those things that homeowners often think about. After all, the ducts are not the flashiest parts of your home. At least, I certainly hope they’re not. Take it from a bear who knows, though, keeping your ducts healthy is just as important as making sure that your air conditioner is functioning properly. After all, they’re two parts of the same system! The ducts serve as the lungs of your home. If they’re not in good shape, your air conditioner won’t be able to cool your home effectively. Poor ducts also have a negative effect on the quality of the air itself. Let’s take a look at why it’s so important to keep your ducts as clean as possible.
