Our air conditioning systems will run less and less until they shut down for a long hiatus during the winter. You’ve probably already started to give your air conditioner longer breaks, which helps to keep down costs. But there’s one “break” you shouldn’t give your AC during the tail end of summer: a break from repairs. It is tempting to ignore signs of an air conditioner that’s malfunctioning at this time of year. After all, you won’t need it much, and soon won’t …

It’s Late Summer: Watch for These Air Conditioner Problems!

It’s already August, but that doesn’t mean we can expect any reprieve from the heat soon. This is a point of the year where a household air conditioning system faces a dilemma: it has plenty of hard work still ahead of it, but has already built up a tremendous amount of wear and tear from two or more months of steady operation. This is the time when a homeowner has to be the most vigilant about potential air conditioning problems. If all that stress leads to a loss of cooling or a complete AC system breakdown, it means getting stranded …

My Heat Pump Isn’t Sending Out Cool Air!

Heat pumps for year-round home comfort are a good idea for most homes. Even with the deep freeze winters here in Minnesota, homes can still enjoy effective heating from a heat pump that’s also a dual fuel system using a back-up furnace in case the heat pump loses efficiency. But you probably don’t want to hear about heating power right now. There’s enough heat outside as it is! Your current concern is the other half of your heat pump system’s operation, its cooling power. A correctly sized and installed heat pump is as powerful as a similar sized air conditioner.
