AC Repair Tip: When to Schedule Service

April 17th, 2017

thermometer-going-redThe only “good” time for an air conditioner to break down is during those cool months of the years when you are not using it anyway. Obviously, if you are not using your system, it is not going to have a chance to break down. The fact of the matter is that your AC is always going to give out on you when you actually need it, and that can leave you dealing with uncomfortable conditions until the problem can be resolved completely.

For precisely this reason, you’ll hopefully never allow problems to develop to the point that a complete breakdown occurs. To avoid this undesirable fate, you need to learn to spot the signs that your system is in need of repairs, and you need to remember that you are always best served by scheduling prompt AC repairs in Fort Collins, CO.

technician-working-on-AC-unitLooking ahead at the weather forecast, you may be wondering why we are even mentioning your air conditioning system right now.

Don’t Ignore the Need for End of Season Furnace Repairs

March 20th, 2017

servicing-gas-furnaceYour furnace has put in a lot of work hours over the past few months. We are sure that you’d love to give it a rest at this point, but your furnace is not quite out of the woods yet. March weather so far this year has proven as unpredictable as ever, with daytime temperatures rising from the 50s one day to up near 80° a day or two later, only then to fall back into the 30s at night. Spring may be here and summer in sight, but you’re going to need your heater for a while longer.

This is why you must not become complacent about your heater’s performance, even this late in the season. We understand you may be tempted to wait on repairs, considering we’re nearing the end of the season. Doing so puts your comfort, your system, and your budget at risk, however. You still need prompt furnace repairs in Windsor, CO.

Are Your Air Ducts Ready for Spring?

March 14th, 2017

In our previous post, we talked about the different types of air cleaners and air purifiers that you may benefit from using this spring, as allergens spike once more. Today, we want to talk about another source of subpar air quality, as well as general discomfort and considerable inefficiency. We want to talk about leaky ductwork.

If you use a forced-air air conditioning system, as most homeowners do, then you use air ducts in order to distribute cooled air throughout your home during the hottest time of the year. There is nothing wrong with doing this, obviously. The issue is that many homeowners fail to recognize that their air ducts are actually not in good working condition.

Spring Is Coming — Along with Allergens!

March 6th, 2017

dandelion-fieldWe’re not quite out of the woods yet as far as colder weather goes, but March is definitely the turning point when it comes to springtime. Now that February is behind us, you’re surely starting to eagerly anticipate the warmer weather and blooming vegetation that spring brings with it. Keep in mind, however, that spring can bring a number of problems with it as well. This is especially true for those of us with allergy and/or asthma symptoms.

Contrary to what some homeowners seem to believe, the air in our homes is not inherently of high quality. In fact, it is possible that the air in your home is more polluted than the air outdoors!
