When your air conditioner is in jeopardy, you have to rush to get much-needed repairs in at the last minute. You might have other plans, but leaving your house hot is simply not an option for you. That’s why preventative maintenance is such a valuable service.
If it’s been going on for a long time, you might just start to think it’s normal for certain rooms of your home to be draft or to feel cooler or warmer than others. However, you should be concerned about this issue for more reasons than one.

Are you considering an HVAC system replacement? The best time to do so is springtime, as our temperatures mellow out and technicians will be less likely to be out on emergency calls. Before you rush out and get the biggest unit you can, however, you need to know that a bigger unit is not necessarily better. If your system is too large, then it will continuously shut on and off to compensate for its size. This process is called short-cycling, and is damaging to your HVAC system, plus it doesn’t efficiently cool or heat your home.
Spring allergies can be a major pain, and they’re even worse when your air conditioner and heater seem to exaggerate the problem. You always hope that coming home to a climate-controlled space will make you feel more comfortable.
