We always urge our customers to move quickly when they think they need AC services. Delaying on important repair and replacement jobs can make the situation worse. But right now we have a special reason to recommend customers calling as soon as possible for new air conditioning equipment: a national HVAC equipment shortage.
Many contractors are experiencing backlogs of orders on air
conditioning systems because of COVID-18-related manufacturer shutdowns. Some
customers are waiting up to four weeks to receive new air conditioners. We currently
have a full inventory, but this is peak season for new AC installations, so
please call us to schedule your service as early as you can.
We hope that you scheduled your air conditioning tune-up in Parksville, BC in spring or early summer. This is an essential job to ensure you enjoy a summer without an AC that gives you grief with repairs, poor performance, or skyrocketing bills.
Now it’s almost fall, and that means we’re turning away from
air conditioning and looking at heating. Heating maintenance, that is. It’s not
cold yet, but there’s no better time to have your heater inspected and tuned-up
than during a time when you don’t
need to run it. You’ll be glad you got maintenance out of the way early so you’re
ready when the first cold day of fall strikes.
An air conditioning system that’s making more noise than it used to, or is making unusual noises it hasn’t before, is a reason for concern. It may not mean that it’s time for a new AC installation in Courtenay, BC to replace the air conditioner, but it often indicates a need for repairs from expert technicians.
In this post, we’ll examine some of those out-of-the-ordinary
sounds that might come from your air conditioner and what they mean. When in
doubt, go straight to calling for professional repairs rather than tinker with
the AC yourself. Making an accurate diagnosis of air conditioning problems is something
only trained technicians can do. Amateur work risks getting the problem wrong,
and therefore getting the “repair” wrong.
Last time, we discussed some simple things that you can do
to help your air conditioner out this summer. There’s been enough time since
this last blog post for you to take a little time to implement these tips, but
what if these tips haven’t worked for you? You might feel like you’re a little
stuck. We understand this, but we want to assure you that this isn’t the case.
You have power in your home. If you’re not getting the work you need, it just might
be time for new
AC installation in Courtenay, BC.
We know that reading this above isn’t always a reason to jump for joy. Replacement work is time-consuming and expensive. When you come to our team though, you can get all the right work that makes this process as affordable and easy as possible. Call today.
Summer means a rise in electric bills for a household as the air conditioning starts running regularly. The AC requires plenty of electrical power for its compressor and fans, and unless you want to sweat out most of the summer, you can expect to have those higher electrical bills. But … they don’t have to be as high as they sometimes are. You may be wasting electrical power and not realize it.
We’d like to help. Here are some tips for your air conditioning in Courtenay, BC, at the beginning of summer that can help make the whole season less expensive—while still being cool!
Proper ventilation is essential for having the best indoor
air quality for a home. People tend to believe that air pollution is a problem
that only exists outside—but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Numerous airborne
contaminants come from inside a house: cooking and cleaning products, cosmetics,
pressed wood, paint and varnish, hobby tools, vehicles in an attached garage,
and more. The best way to clean out a concentration of chemicals, smoke, volatile
organic compounds (VOCs), and plain ol’ dust is to open up the house to circulate
a fresh breeze.
We can already anticipate your objection: “How can I do that
during times when it’s extremely hot or cold outside?” This is the number one
problem. Maintaining energy efficiency in a home requires a sealed home. This
is why so many houses today are built tightly with heavy insulation. And its
also why so many contaminants get trapped indoors.
No matter what the temperatures are during spring, it’s the right
time of the year to prepare your air conditioning system for the coming summer heat.
Air conditioners aren’t invincible devices that can run and run without starting
to wear down. Without proper inspections and tune-ups from professionals done
each year, air conditioners will rapidly decline and create numerous problems
before breaking down early.

We won’t truly enjoy warmer spring weather for at
least another month, and even then the temperature swings can be shaky. The
short of it is you need to have your furnace working well through the spring.
Now is not the time to ignore troubles with your furnace just because you might
be able to “wait it out.”
There are several important reasons to always act fast on furnace
repairs, but the top one is that a natural gas furnace (which is what you probably
have in your home) may turn hazardous if repair needs are ignored. Gas furnaces
aren’t an inherently dangerous type of heating system, but negligence raises
the chance of safety hazards.
