Sounds That Signal HVAC Trouble

May 15, 2017
Your air conditioner has an important job.  Now that the temperatures are on the rise in Wilmington, you rely on your air conditioner to keep your home cool and comfortable.  One of the best parts of your air conditioner is that it does its job in a relatively quiet manner, and most of the sounds you do hear are completely normal.  Some noises, however, are not normal, and can signal trouble for your HVAC unit.

What Do MERV and MPR Stand For? MERV and MPR are two different rating systems for HVAC air filters, and their ability ... Continue Reading

How Air Conditioners Can Cut Humidity


How Air Conditioners Can Cut Humidity Spring is well under way in Wilmington, and the temperatures are on the rise.  So, too, are the humidity levels.  In many instances, the humidity is worse than the heat.  Hot, humid days can make you feel miserable.  Fortunately, an efficient air conditioner will not only help to keep the temperature of your home at a comfortable level, it will also greatly help to cut the humidity. Why Cutting Humidity is Important High humidity with warm temperatures is never a good mixture.  Our bodies regulate temperature through perspiration, and as it evaporates, we cool down.  When the ...

Why Should You Upgrade Your Old Thermostat?

March 22, 2017
Your HVAC system runs throughout your entire home, yet it is all controlled by such a small piece of equipment – the thermostat.

However, if your thermostat hasn’t been changed out in a while (or ever, that you can remember), it might be time for an upgrade. Manual Thermostat Lacks Accuracy A manual thermostat is any thermostat that operates with the use of a dial or sliding switch. ... Continue Reading

Seasonal HVAC maintenance you can do yourself

January 12, 2017
No one wants their heater to quit working in January (even if you don’t need it every day in Wilmington) and everyone wishes their heating bill would be lower, but what can you do? Although regular maintenance by a professional is always recommended, there are steps you can take as well. Change those filters. This one, simple step can make a big difference.

These systems utilize ducts to carry cool air to rooms. Once cool air warms as it circulates throughout the area, it returns to the central air conditioner through the ducts to be cooled again. No more unsightly exterior window units; central air units bring money-saving elegance ... Continue Reading
