The following troubleshooting guide will help you address some of the most common problems you can fix on your own. The A/C Won’t Turn On The first thing to do if your air conditioner isn’t turning on is to check your unit from outside to see if the condenser is running. Ensure that your thermostat is set correctly and that the unit is plugged in. Lower your thermostat and set it to cool to see if that fixes the problem.

Why Do I Need Duct Cleaning

  Most people wonder if duct cleaning is important and whether they should get their air ducts cleaned and the answer is that they should. This is because all homes with air ducts are susceptible to accumulations of dirt and dust. HVAC systems need to be examined by reliable professionals from a licensed HVAC company on a regular basis. Below are some more reasons why as a homeowner, you should have your ducts cleaned.

As you inhabit your home, a lot of contaminants such as chemicals, dust and dander are produced and drawn into the HVAC system. They are re-circulated approximately five to seven times a day. With time, this recirculation causes a buildup of contaminants in the ducts. Dirty ducts do not essentially mean harmful air in your space but they may be donating to bigger health issues or sheltering contaminants that could cause problems for people with environmental allergies or respiratory health conditions. Energy saving Studies indicate that close to forty percent of the energy used for cooling or heating homes is squandered. This is because contaminants in the systems cause it to work harder and shorten its life. Even though filters are used, HVAC systems still require duct cleaning because cooling and heating systems still accumulate dirt through regular use. An HVAC system that is clean doesn’t have to...
