air-conditioningAir conditioner issues are common during the summer season. All that use puts added strain on the system, and for many air conditioners that’s enough to create new problems or exacerbate old ones. There are things you can do, of course. Scheduling preventive maintenance is one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner in good condition throughout the summer. You could just try going without air conditioning, but even if you aren’t a sentient-HVAC loving bear (you aren’t, are you?) you probably don’t want to spend the entire summer in the heat.

Do I Need to Replace My Furnace?

Monday, February 5th, 2018

Old-FurnaceIt always stinks to have to replace a climate control system. They’re not cheap, and the replacement process usually means that you have to go without heating or air conditioning for at least a few hours.
