The Importance of Great Ducts In Your Home

Monday, June 13th, 2022

Your ducts are the lifeline of your home. All your conditioned air (whether cold or hot) travels through this ductwork. If it’s compromised in any way, you’re going to notice a decline in both your comfort and efficiency. This is bad news because there’s nothing worse than an uncomfortable home and high energy bills to match. You don’t have to replace your air conditioning system or even engage in air conditioning repair to rectify this issue. A lot of the time, the problem stems from your home’s ductwork rather than the air conditioning system itself. If you’re looking for great duct sealing in Dickson, TN, then it’s time to schedule an appointment with our professionals. We’re around when you need great work because quality is important to us. We always take the extra steps.

Is My Furnace Air Filter Enough to Clean the Household Air?

Monday, December 27th, 2021
air-filter-change

Your furnace comes equipped with an air filter that’s usually found at the point where the return air duct connects to the furnace cabinet where the blower fan is located. Sometimes the filter is behind the vent cover of the return air vent. If the cabinet contains both the furnace and the air conditioner, the systems will use the same filter, which is why the filter is sometimes called the HVAC filter. 

You might assume that this filter’s primary purpose is to help provide cleaner, healthier air for the house. After all, why else have a filter in place? The truth is different, however. Although the furnace filter can provide some minor benefit to your home’s indoor air quality, this isn’t what it is designed to do. If you’re looking for better indoor air quality, you can’t rely on the filter and may need to look into other options.

How a Dehumidifier Can Help Your Home

Monday, October 25th, 2021

When people think of high humidity levels, they usually think of hot days that feel even worse because of the muggy air. This is why “a dry heat” is supposed to indicate heat that’s more tolerable. (Dry air brings its own problems, but that’s for another post.)

You can’t do much about high humidity outdoors, but you can control humidity inside your house. There are portable dehumidifiers, but they’re limited in scope and don’t give you precise control over humidity levels. For proper humidity control, you’ll need our professionals to install a whole-house dehumidifier. This is integrated into your existing HVAC system and can be controlled through an upgraded thermostat.

How Would You Grade Your AC for the End of the Summer?

Tuesday, October 19th, 2021

School’s back in session, which also means we’re moving into the time of year when we use our air conditioners less and less until they shut down entirely until spring. This is a good season to take stock of your air conditioning system’s performance over the summer so you can take steps to improve it. This may mean calling for repairs, or it could mean scheduling a full replacement.

To help you analyze your AC’s performance, we’ve provided a short guide. All you have to do is think about how well your AC did over the summer, taking into account its reliability and if it needed repairs. Then give the air conditioner a letter grade, just like school, from “A” to “F,” and consult the guide below:
