Are Late Season AC Repairs Worth It?

Monday, November 5th, 2018

old-acOne look at the weather forecast will tell you that the winter season is moving in fast. In fact, it is likely that you won’t need to use your air conditioner even once more this year. Which is perfect, because your AC wasn’t exactly working perfectly the last time that you did need to use it.  So you can just wait until next year to have it fixed, right? Well, sure you can.

And, technically, you could probably make it around the block a few times without any tires on your rims. That doesn’t mean that you’d try to do so, though. So why let your AC sit in a state of disrepair all winter?

We get it. Many homeowners would choose to ride out the rest of the summer with an AC on the edge rather than schedule late-season AC repairs. Even more would skip over out-of-season air conditioning repair in Durham, NC. We’re here to tell you that it’s in your best interest to go ahead and have them taken care of now, though.

What Short Cycling Means for Your AC

Monday, May 7th, 2018

AC-technicianOne of the worst things that you can do for your air conditioning system is to convince yourself that your air conditioner is working “well enough”. We know, we get it. It’s hot out, you’re busy, at least there’s still cool air coming from the vents, etc. etc. That may all be true, but the fact remains that ignoring the need for air conditioning repairs is a decision that is going to come back to haunt you. Worse, the negative impact on your air conditioner can manifest in a number of different ways.

Why Hire a Professional for Your AC Repairs?

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

AC-technician-manifoldIn this day and age, you can type a few basic keywords regarding just about any job around the house into a search engine and find some type of tutorial or guide to help you complete a DIY project.
