Why You Should Schedule Your AC Maintenance Appointment Now

Written by: Metro Air

Summer is here and that means you’ll be turning on your air conditioner daily for a while. Is it ready to handle constant use for the next few months? You’ll need a reliable and efficient air conditioning system to keep you cool and comfortable until the summer weather ends. To help with that, you should schedule your AC maintenance appointment right away.

One of the easiest things you can do regularly is change your air filter every other month. Many people forget to do this, but it’s very important to stay on top of this as to help prolong the life of your system and help with indoor air quality! These air filters help protect the inside of your system from debris and dirt that impact your airflow.

Another thing you should do before you have your maintenance appointment scheduled is to make sure all the debris, dirt, or other build up around your outside unit is picked up and removed.  This debris could also get inside your HVAC system and wreak havoc, causing it to break down or need repair.

Once those to-do items are completed, schedule your maintenance tune-up. Your preventative maintenance appointment will help you fend off costly repairs that could surprise you when you least expect it. There are also a variety of other benefits:

Efficiency: Over the years – especially during the warm summer months – your air conditioner will have some wear and tear. The blower motor especially will undergo strain with a lot of usage, and if it’s not maintained your energy bills could spike. However, if your system is maintained regularly, it will maintain its efficiency rating.

Lifespan: With regular maintenance appointments, your air conditioner can last a long time. But if you don’t, you’re risking breakdown and repairs, which could not only be costly, but could translate to a shorter lifespan for the machine.

Reliability: This is one of the biggest advantages of staying on top of preventative maintenance! Your cooling system will be less likely to break down or suffer major operational issues, right when you need it the most! Our HVAC professionals will look closely at the overall efficiency of the machine, check the filters, and will also make sure the inside components are working as they should. If we notice anything that needs to be changed, we’ll make the adjustments as needed and talk to you about anything additional that needs to be done to keep it working at its peak.

Now is the perfect time to get your maintenance appointment scheduled, before we’re living with scorching, humid days. We service all brands! If you need a new system completely, we can help with that and will work with you to find a new air conditioner that works with your budget and your home’s layout!

Why You Should Go Ductless This Summer

Written by: Metro Air

If you’ve been on the fence about getting a new air conditioning system installed this year, now is the time to act!  Summer officially starts on June 21, and with that comes endless days of heat and humidity! Getting your new system in place soon will help you stay comfortable during those hot days. And what better way to do that than to have a new ductless system installed? Not only will it keep you cool and comfortable during the summer, but it will also keep you warm once winter rolls around! All it takes is a few clicks of a button. One machine can provide both heat AND air conditioning!

If your home lacks ductwork that is used for traditional HVAC systems, a ductless heat pump is a great affordable solution. They can be installed in a variety of different spaces including newly constructed homes, tiny accessory dwelling units, remodeled homes, manufactured houses, or older homes that relied on electric heaters.

What is a ductless system?
Ductless systems use state-of-the-art technology that dispenses cool and warm air quietly and with extreme efficiency. There is an outdoor unit that connects to a small bundle of cables and a refrigerant line, which is installed at the ground level of your house. The unit is connected to the indoor unit which is mounted to a machine head, or various machine heads that are installed in a central spot in the home. There are remote controls that come with the system which will allow you to adjust the temperature as needed.

What are the benefits?
One of the primary benefits is the energy efficiency of these machines. They do not waste electricity like electric heaters or bulky window air conditioners. In fact, it’s very common to see a reduction in your utility bill because of the energy savings! Another benefit is the reduction of noise! Ductless systems are incredibly quiet – most people hardly know that they’re on! These systems can also have air purifiers inside that help reduce your exposure to germs, pollen, mold, or dust, which means that people living with allergies or asthma may also find some relief.

A quality ductless system provides comfort on your own terms, year-round! No matter what the weather is doing outside, you can rely on your unit to keep you cool and relaxed.
