We understand that this may not be the most interesting subject for today’s homeowner—but maybe it should be. After all, air conditioning can account for a majority of your utilities in the summertime!

Soon enough, you’ll be running your central air conditioner just as often as you ran your heating system this winter. In our part of the country, it can get pretty humid, so you may be anxious to get the air conditioner started up right away at the first sign of heat. But we’re here to remind you that you cannot expect your air conditioner to run properly when you need it, unless you prepare.
Just like heating systems, air conditioning units need maintenance before the warmer weather is in full swing. Today, we’ll talk about the importance of scheduling a maintenance visit in the spring and offer you more helpful advice for getting your air conditioner into gear. To learn more, contact your friendly local HVAC specialists.

Think about what your bills were like in the middle of winter last year. In our area, heating costs can run quite high. And many of our habits and the way our homes work can make energy and fuel costs even higher.
Our summers are not only hot, but also very humid. This means there is an exceptionally high amount of water vapor in the air, which makes it feel warmer than it really is. When relative humidity levels are about 50% or higher, your body no longer has the means to dissipate sweat—as it cannot evaporate into the air around it so easily—and this is your body’s natural way of cooling off.
When water leaks from your air conditioning system, it could result in hundreds or thousands of dollars in damages to your home. We’ve heard of some pretty severe situations where water leakage has ruined kitchen cabinets or floor boards and we want to make sure this doesn’t happen to you.
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. But an HVAC system can often make things worse, pushing the air throughout the home so that any contaminants in the air, like dust and pollen, only continue to circulate.
We don’t want you to feel like you have to shiver under some blankets just to save some money on your monthly bills. If your heating bills seem way too high this year, it could just be that you haven’t taken the right steps to get the problem under control.
Looking for a way to save money on heating and cooling without getting rid of your older HVAC system? One simple change can make it a lot easier for you to stay comfortable, and it can help you regain control over your monthly heating and cooling costs. All you have to do is trade out the thermostat on the wall (with the help of a professional).
It’s pretty frustrating listening to the sounds of your furnace starting up and then almost immediately shutting down. If you hear this happening, it usually means that your system isn’t igniting. When your system doesn’t ignite, the safety controls within the furnace immediately shut the system down to prevent anything dangerous from developing. It isn’t your job to see what’s happening with your furnace’s ignition – this is a potentially dangerous scenario. Instead, call the heating experts from Boehmer Heating & Cooling and schedule furnace repair in Baldwin-Whitehall.
