People often say, “Out of sight, out of mind.” And for many homeowners, this is true when it comes to air ducts. You probably don’t think about the air ducts in your home too often, especially because they’re not in plain sight. But it might be time to think twice about the air ducts in your home. Neglecting your home’s air ducts could lead to some big problems.

The air ducts in your home work hard to efficiently provide the whole house with heat and cool air when needed. But if your ductwork is damaged, you’ll also see poor heating and cooling performance. Not only is this uncomfortable and inconvenient, but it could also raise the price tag on your energy bills. This is why professional duct maintenance is so important.

When was the last time you had your air ducts cleaned? If you can’t recall, or it’s been a while, it might be time to pick up the phone and call for air duct cleaning in Henderson TN. Allow us to explain why air duct cleaning is not just worth it, but necessary as well.

We’ve discovered there are two typical schools of thought when it comes to an air conditioner developing ice all of the sudden:

  1. Well, it’s a refrigeration system, so ice is supposed to form like this, right? or

How Many Hours a Day Can I Run My AC?

July 4th, 2022

It’s time to plan for summer! Soon enough, we’ll have consistently warm temperatures, and that means you need to have a fully functional air conditioner running pretty much 24/7.

“Wait,” you might be wondering, “Can I run my air conditioner 24/7?”

The answer is, “yes and no.” We get it, that’s a frustrating response, but bear with us! We will elaborate.

You see, there’s no problem having your air conditioner set to “cool” 24/7 during the summer. The “problem” arises when you set your thermostat so low that your air conditioner can’t possibly reach the desired setting, and therefore the compressor keeps cycling on and even staying on when it shouldn’t. This is what gets inefficient and leads to exacerbated wear and tear.

Read on as we teach you about something called the temperature differential and learn how to use your cooling system in the best and most efficient way possible!

Before you get too enthusiastic, we need to clarify–this is not a “how-to” guide. We generally do not recommend that homeowners do any repairs on their air conditioners themselves. Aside from changing the air filter or tightening a loose screw on a panel of the outdoor unit of the cooling system, trying to resolve repair needs on your own can do more harm than good, and leave you needing to call in a professional anyway.

What this is a guide for is the most common questions that come up in regards to air conditioning repairs–like how long they’ll last and why that matters, how much AC repairs cost, and if AC repairs can be prevented. Read on to learn the answers to these questions.
