Late AC Maintenance Is Still Worth It

Monday, August 8th, 2022

Air conditioning maintenance is a service that really comes to fruition when you get it done regularly. Your AC can more easily reach the 10-15 year lifespan, run efficiently, and even cool your home better with routine maintenance that’s scheduled every year.

However, nobody lives in a vacuum. Things happen in our lives that can bump into these kinds of purchases and simply jump to the front of the line in terms of priorities. Perhaps you’re planning for your daughter’s wedding, or you’ve got a recently broken-down car that needs to be replaced. These are important expenses that we understand take first priority.

So, if you were busy spending on important things and missed your chance for AC maintenance in Kalispell, MT, then don’t worry. Late maintenance is actually still just as effective as early maintenance, as long as you get it done in a yearly fashion. Keep reading to learn more!

“My AC Is Leaking What?”

Monday, May 16th, 2022

Uh oh, you’re hearing the telltale signs of a refrigerant leak. Either you’ve got a hissing or bubbling air conditioner, or maybe the system’s efficiency levels are really starting to cost you. But either way, it sounds to us like you’re dealing with a refrigerant leak. This is a fairly common problem with air conditioners, and since we’re at the very beginning of the cooling season, it only makes sense to get it fixed ASAP.

Air conditioning systems rely on refrigerant in a closed-loop system to deliver cooling to your home’s air. With less refrigerant (because more of it is leaking), this job gets harder and harder to do. You can’t really DIY a fix of this magnitude, because the system requires very precise AC repair in Kalispell, MT that can only be done by licensed professionals.

Keep reading to learn more about refrigerant leaks and what you can do to fix yours.

The Unique Benefits of a Ductless System

Monday, September 20th, 2021

Ductless air conditioners are all the rage these days. With our ever-growing fascination with tiny homes and energy-efficient HVAC systems, ductless technology keeps hogging the spotlight. That’s why we think it’s important that homeowners know exactly what they’re purchasing when they look into investing in these systems.

Ductless HVAC systems can both heat and cool a home. While they might not be as efficient during our coldest winter months, they can be amazing for nine or ten months of the year while we deal with mild temperatures and the need for an improvement of a few degrees in one direction or the other.

Want to know about how ductless systems work and why you would ever think of investing in one? Well, keep reading. If you’re an unconventional homeowner, or perhaps a homeowner with an entirely electric house, then we’ll tell you all about how perfect ductless AC systems in Kalispell, MT are!
