In either case, there are ways to get creative about staying cool without sitting in front of the AC all day long. Check out these innovative ways to keep your cool, whether you're venturing outside or staying in.

FAQs About Air Conditioning

If you're considering installing an air conditioner in your home for the upcoming summer or you would like to replace your existing one, you likely have many questions about AC units. Two-thirds of American homes contain air conditioners, producing about 5% of all electricity produced in the United States at a yearly cost of more than $11 billion to homeowners, says Energy.gov. Having an efficient AC unit is key to saving money and the environment.

Importance of Whole-House Dehumidifiers

With the rising humidity levels of summer rapidly approaching, your air conditioner isn't always enough to keep the air in your home dry. Too much humidity in the home can make you feel clammy all the time, encourage the growth of mold, and cause allergy flare-ups. Perhaps you have a dehumidifier in your basement to suck out high levels of moisture, which works great for that one room, but what about the rest of the house? That's where a whole-house dehumidifier comes in.

3 Qualities to Look for in an HVAC Tech

When searching for a dependable HVAC technician that won't take you for a ride, it can be a stressful process -- one that involves some research on your part. However, with that research comes peace of mind knowing that you chose the right company for you.

Spring Home Maintenance Tips

Spring cleaning is a must for all areas of the home, particularly your HVAC systems. That's because over the year, your ducts and systems can become clogged with dust and dirt, resulting in lower air quality for your family. That's not all you should be checking in the spring. Take stock of your home's mechanical systems to make sure they're working properly so they can handle the demands of the pending season.

Thinking Ahead to Spring: Tuning up the AC

With spring nearly upon us, you may be having thoughts about hotter temps and summer fun. To keep cool throughout the season, you'll need a properly-running air conditioning unit to perform well when you need it to. Before cranking your AC up, you'll need a tune-up to ensure it's in peak working condition. Regular maintenance and servicing of your home comfort system saves you money on your utility bills, guards against costly repairs, and extends the operating life of your system, says Energy.gov.

Has Customer Service Gone Extinct?

It's right there in the title: customer service. Serving the customer. Many companies follow that literally: offering a phone number or website to assist the customer in finding and buying a product or service. Wonderful. But what about that extra something that should be implied between the lines? Service with a smile? Convenience? Going the extra mile to ensure satisfaction? That's where many companies fail these days. Not us.

Sealing and Maintaining Your HVAC Ducts

Did you know your duct system is the most neglected component of your entire HVAC system? As such, it needs to be maintained in order to operate at peak efficiency. We know, ducts are easy to forget because they're in the walls and ceilings: out of sight, out of mind, right? Well, you'll need to step it up a notch when it comes to maintaining and sealing your duct system to extend the life of your system, keep your energy bills low and keep repairs at bay.
