Why Is My Air Conditioner Running Irregularly?

May 14th, 2018

AC-technicianOnce the heat of summer really gets back into full swing, is your air conditioning system going to be there for you in order to keep your home cool and comfortable? Obviously, investing in good equipment and keeping that equipment well-maintained by scheduling annual tune-ups is going to give your system a good fighting chance. The truth is, however, that even the best and most well-maintained systems will stumble from time to time.

Now, an air conditioner that won’t start up at all or that is pumping hot air into your home is an air conditioner that is obviously in need of professional air conditioning repair services. There are plenty of instances in which you may need AC repairs in Madera that aren’t quite as obvious, though. An AC that is running irregularly is certainly one of them. Just don’t fool yourself into thinking that such problems are “minor” enough to wait on.

Can I Cool My Home without Ducts?

April 30th, 2018

ductless-blowerYes, you can—and no, you do not have to do so with multiple window unit air conditioners installed throughout the house. While these window units do have their uses, such as cooling a single dorm room or maybe a studio apartment, they are far from ideal for cooling an entire house. When the heat comes back to our area, and it will come back hard, you need to know that residential AC system is up to the task at hand.

That is why you should consider using a ductless mini split system in your home. The system may not be ideal for every home or every homeowner, but no system is. For those homeowners that the system is the right fit for, there is nothing that can compare to the many benefits that ductless air conditioning has to offer. Just remember that any air conditioner that you invest in is only as good as your air conditioning service in Clovis, CA.
