Is Your Heater Ready for Action?

November 5th, 2018

hello-winterWe know, we know. It’s not as if temperatures are really cold out there right now. And yes, we know that our winters are fairly mild.

How IAQ Services Benefit Your AC

October 22nd, 2018

filter-mediaYour air conditioner serves a very specific function, in that it is used solely to cool your home. While it may dehumidify the air as it cools, it is not a whole-house dehumidifier. While it may have an air filter in place that you need to change every month or so, it is not an air filtration system. This is not to say that your air conditioner is not tied to your indoor air quality, though, or that the use of IAQ systems cannot benefit your AC.

We obviously live in a very hot part of the country, and you really need great HVAC services in Blue Ridge, GA. Don’t count on your AC alone to keep your home as comfortable as possible, though. Remember that we are here to handle your indoor air quality services for you, as well. Taking a multi-pronged approach to comfort in your home is always going to be in your best interest.

ac-technicianUp in the Northeast and the Midwest regions of the country, many homeowners are already firing up their home heating systems for the season.

Routine Maintenance Is a Vital AC Service

August 27th, 2018

AC-outdoor-unitWhile it is getting a bit late in the calendar year, with it already being the last week of August and all, it’s tough to say when you’re air conditioner is really going to get much of a break around here.

July 30th, 2018

blown-awayWe do not expect homeowners to be air conditioning experts. If you all were, after all, our business would be in serious trouble! That being said, we do think that it is in your best interest to have some idea of how your air conditioning system works. You may not be able to accurately diagnose problems that develop with your system, and you definitely should not try to resolve them on your own. You can,  however, recognize that there are a lot of vital components in your system, and any issues should raise red flags.
