How Do I Troubleshoot Systems Issues?

There are ways to determine if your heating or cooling might have a problem. Some tell-tale signs include hearing odd noises when your systems turn on, unusually high energy bills and poor airpower when blowing. However, the only way to honestly know is by scheduling an inspection with a professional.

Our team can evaluate your systems and determine what’s wrong with your heating or cooling system.

Please refrain from trying to repair systems by yourself. Doing so without the proper training is dangerous and could lead to further problems. Contact us to schedule an inspection today.

Why Is Heat and Air Maintenance Important?

Unless you have your heating and systems shut off, they work continuously throughout your home and business. Like all machinery, your system’s parts will eventually wear down and malfunction—or stop functioning completely—if left untreated. Routine and preventative maintenance evaluates your systems’ conditions and addresses any encroaching concerns so that you can remedy them sooner than later.

How Often Should I Schedule Maintenance?

We recommend scheduling maintenance routinely to ensure your systems are working right. You should undoubtedly schedule maintenance for your systems before using them: check your heat before fall and winter and check your A/C before spring and summer. Doing so will ensure your systems work right when they’re most useful.


What Are Cooling Load Calculations?

Many home cooling systems malfunction due to inappropriate A/C equipment sizing. If a system is too large, its cooling cycles turn on and off inconsistently, leading to uneven temperature shifts. On the other hand, small systems get overburdened and worn out easily.

Cooling load calculations determine the factors that add to cooling systems malfunctions, helping our professionals to form a customized solution to keep your home cool and comfortable.

Here’s what cooling load calculations consider:

  • What is your home’s square footage?
  • What is your home’s layout?
  • How much insulation is in your home?
  • Does your home have any appliances or equipment that affect your cooling?

How Long Will My Systems Units Last?

Your unit longevity depends on several factors. Age, current condition and manufacturing quality can affect how long your units will work. Preventative maintenance will extend the life of your unit by preventing problems from occurring. We recommend scheduling maintenance to keep your units long-lasting and functional.
