After all, you may well know that your air conditioner does not actually use any wat…Read More

  6. Why Refrigerant Leaks Are a Major Concern

    Your air conditioner does not somehow generate coolness, the way that your furnace or boiler generates heat via electric resistance or the combustion of fuel. Instead, that coolness that you are feeling is really the absence of heat. Your air conditioner removes heat from the air in order to cool it down before recirculating that air throughout your home. The refrigerant in your air conditioning…Read More

  10. Whole-House Comfort: Skip the Air Ducts!

    Okay, so we are obviously not advising everyone to forgo the use of ductwork in their homes in order to maintain comfortable temperatures by distributing heated and cooled air throughout the living space. In some/many cases, however, homeowners are going to run into some trouble as far as the ductwork goes. This can happen for different reasons and at different stages. When it does, clients oft…Read More
