I think I need to schedule AC repair, what warning signs should I be looking for?
When it comes to cooling equipment, it’s best to act as soon as possible if you think something’s wrong. Issues don’t usually start out as being significant. Often they’re minor, seemingly insignificant but can rapidly snowball into huge AC repair costs—and potential replacement. Watch out for changes in energy costs, odd noises, unusual odors, leaking, and uneven cooling or high humidity in your home. If you’ve noticed any of these warning signs, give P.K. Wadsworth a call.
Can AC be installed in my home with a boiler?
A great way to add air conditioning to a home with a boiler is to install a mini split system. These systems don’t need ducts. They are a ductless system that can be used for both heating and cooling. This is a great advantage; not only will they help cool your home, but they also can act as a backup if your boiler system fails.
Not only do these ductless systems work well with your boiler, they also bring many advantages that other systems can’t provide. They are very energy efficient, especially if you consider the zoning options. They provide much cleaner air to your home than air that has been run through a series of dirty vents.
Should I cover my AC in the Fall and Winter?
Covering your AC is not necessary. Sometimes moisture will get trapped inside the cover which is not good for the unit.
