The Top 5 Signs Your Boiler Needs Professional Repairs

Monday, January 30th, 2023

Although boilers are not as common for home heating as furnaces, they have enough advantages to stay competitive.

One of the best advantages of having a boiler heat your home is how much longer these systems can last.

Boilers have fewer moving parts compared to a furnace or heat pump, which means they wear down slower and encounter repair problems less frequently.

But just because boiler repair isn’t as common as furnace repair doesn’t mean you can let your vigilance slide.

When your boiler begins to send signals it’s malfunctioning, the faster you act to get it inspected and repaired, the better in both the short-term and long-term.

We’ll make it easier for you to know when you’ve got a boiler problem with this list of the top warning signs.

Don’t Ignore AC Problems at the Start of Fall!

Monday, September 26th, 2022

Fall has officially started, although it might not seem like it when we’re still experiencing hot days. The cool weather is still not far off, and this can make it easy to assume that air conditioning repair in Conway, AR is no longer a priority. The air conditioning system is going to run less and less until it goes on a short winter hiatus. 

This makes it tempting to ignore seemingly “minor” troubles with an air conditioning system in the early fall. Odd noises, uneven cooling, temperatures that don’t feel as comfortable … you might try to dismiss all these as something to deal with later, such as in the spring when it’s time for AC maintenance.

Please don’t put off air conditioning repair like this! The time to call for repairs for an air conditioner is as soon as you notice the troubles. Here’s why we never recommend delaying any professional repairs for your AC.

Watch for Warnings Your AC’s Compressor Is in Jeopardy

Monday, August 1st, 2022

All the components of your home’s central air conditioning system have important jobs. But one component has a special elevated status: the compressor. This is the engine of the entire AC, since it’s where energy is applied to the refrigerant to put it under pressure and then start the process of circulating through the system and moving heat from inside the home to outside. 

The compressor uses the most electrical power of any part of the air conditioner (from 2,900 to 4,100 watts per hour) and it’s also expensive to replace if it burns out. The cost to replace a failed compressor is often costly enough that if the part is no longer under warranty it is more cost-effective to replace the entire air conditioning system.

How Cool Can My AC Make My House?

Monday, July 4th, 2022

Have you ever looked at the thermostat in your home and thought about how cold you might be able to make the rooms if it could be set lower than the 60–63°F? That’s the usual limit on thermostats, and people rarely want the house any colder than that. They rarely want it colder than 68°F! But could the air conditioning system conceivably cool the house even lower? Or, to put it another way, just what is the cooling limit for your AC?

Answering these questions isn’t only an exercise in hypotheticals. You can learn important facts about how your AC runs and how best to manage thermostat settings when you know an air conditioner’s limits.
