Summer Heat + Fresh Air? An ERV Can Do That!

Monday, July 8th, 2024

When it’s a hot day and you need to have your home’s air conditioning system running, do you keep the windows and doors open? We hope not, since this will cause the AC to waste power as it runs. The air conditioner must work harder to remove the heat from your home as heat is rushing in through open windows. 

Unfortunately, when you seal up your home for the AC, you also seal out fresh air. Modern homes are built so tightly for energy efficiency that they don’t “breathe” much. During a hot summer, you may find your household air becoming stale and dusty because there hasn’t been enough fresh air brought in.

Did you know that there’s a way around this dilemma? It’s called an energy recovery ventilator. We offer installation of energy recovery ventilators in Sandersville, GA, and we’d like to explain how one of these devices can really improve your comfort, energy bills, and indoor air quality.

You’ve Got a Runaway AC!

Monday, June 24th, 2024

You’ve got a runaway AC! The idea of an air conditioner that’s almost continuously sending out cool air may seem refreshing during the hottest days of the summer, but it will soon lead to a house that’s too cold and electric bills that are far too high. It also places an enormous amount of strain on the air conditioner, and that can mean extra repairs and possibly an early need to replace the unit with a new AC installation in Sandersville, GA.

You might think that you can simply raise the thermostat setting to fix this problem. But you shouldn’t: if you push the thermostat higher than you normally would, it means there’s a malfunction somewhere that you need to address. We’ll look at some of the possibilities for a nonstop air conditioner so you’ll have a good idea of how to deal with it.

Why Is Water Dripping From My AC?

Monday, May 27th, 2024

If you notice water dripping from your central air conditioning system, you might wonder where it’s coming from. An AC doesn’t use water to cool the air (that’s how swamp coolers work), so why is there water in the AC at all?

We’re going to address that in this blog post, as well as go into why this problem can occur. Most of the time, it is a problem: it indicates a malfunction with the air conditioner’s condensate drainage system. You’ll need to schedule prompt AC repair in Sandersville, GA to have your leaky air conditioner fixed before it becomes an even bigger concern.

Got a Dead AC Compressor Before the Start of Summer? Here Are Your Options

Monday, April 15th, 2024

One of the best reasons to always schedule air conditioning maintenance in spring is because it will catch problems before the hot weather begins, giving you time to correct them. One of the biggest problems a technician may discover during an AC inspection is that the compressor has failed. If you didn’t know about this ahead of time, you would have turned your cooling system on during the first hot day and gotten … room-temperature air. No cooling at all! 

The compressor is one of the most important parts of an AC: it’s where most of the energy used to cool a house goes. The compressor is also an expensive component. It’s costly enough that when it fails, the conventional wisdom is that the whole air conditioning system needs to be replaced. Is this always the case? Let’s look at the options you’ll have when you’ve got a dead compressor

Why Professional Server Room Cooling Is Essential

Monday, March 4th, 2024

Server rooms are essential for the operations of many businesses, and they require special protection to ensure they don’t lose data. This requires server rooms to have their own cooling systems to prevent the heat from the equipment causing the servers to overheat. 

You can’t cool a server room with just a fan and an open door, and they usually can’t be attached to the standard HVAC system that cools the rest of the facility. They must have a professionally installed dedicated server room cooling system that will ensure the important protection of this operations hub.

We handle server room cooling in Sandersville, GA along with other commercial HVAC services, and we can explain why you need to have experts like ours install your server room cooling system.
