Consider Your Air Conditioner Options Carefully

Monday, August 19th, 2019

animated-group-of-air-conditioners-and-fansLet’s face it, this is pretty much the worse time of the year to be shopping for air conditioning in Oradell, NJ. We say that because you clearly need your cooling system right now. Still though, the middle of summer is the most likely time for an AC system to break down, particularly if it’s aging or if you skipped a maintenance session this year.

So, if it’s time for you to shop for a new system, you’re likely very motivated to make a quick purchase. We really have to discourage you from rushing, however. Rushing into an air conditioner purchase can leave you with a system that’s not appropriately matched to your home. This may not sound like a big deal, but it can actually be detrimental to the efficiency, effectiveness, and overall performance of your air conditioner.

Why Does Ductless Maintenance Matter?

Monday, May 27th, 2019

closeup-view-of-hand-turning-on-ductless-air-handler-remotelyUsing a ductless system to cool (and heat) the home has become a popular option for many individuals throughout Rockland and Bergen County, and for good reason! These systems operate on heat pump technology, which gives them that functionality to both cool and heat the home. They use heat transfer rather than heat generation during the winter, making them similar in setup to the traditional central air conditioner—and making them more efficient than a standard central AC or central furnace.

If you already have one in place, then you already know all this! But, do you know how important maintenance is? Professional maintenance is a service that allows our technicians to inspect your entire HVAC system, checking for anything that needs adjustment, cleaning the system, and looking for signs of repairs.

Why is this service even more important for your ductless air conditioning in Emerson, NJ, though? We’ll answer below!
