If you’re worried about the quality of air in your house, you’re not alone. Today’s homeowners have much greater concerns about unhealthy pollutants, microbes, and germs floating around the air they breathe. And many have good reasons to. 

The reason that so many homes today have worse air quality than before is because construction builds houses “tighter” so the buildings are more energy efficient: it’s harder to lose heat in winter or gain it in summer. But this tight seal on the house also traps indoor air and the contaminants inside it—and there are more sources of indoor pollutants in households than ever before. Your home’s air can contain a mixture of chemicals and volatile organic compounds along with ordinary dust, lint, dander, and pollen. 

It’s with these smaller particles that an air purifier can really make a difference for your home!

Duct cleaning services sometimes get a bad reputation, but this is because there are many disreputable people out there who try to sell subpar duct cleaning that doesn’t do much more than dust the vent covers and vacuum a foot or so inside the ducts themselves. But genuine duct cleaning from licensed HVAC professionals can make a major difference in air conditioning, heating, and indoor air quality for a house. 

So, does your home need duct cleaning?

Because it’s easy to forget about the ducts in the walls and attic of your house—after all, you can’t see them easily—you probably don’t think much about scheduling service to test them and find out if they need sealing or repair. However, professional duct testing is a task that benefits most homes. If air ducts have leaks, it will cost a house in comfort, energy bills, and damage to HVAC equipment. It all adds up to big expenses and a loss of basic comfort, whether in summer or winter.

How big an air conditioner do you need for your home?

You may find this a strange question. Obviously, you want an air conditioner that will fit where it’s supposed to go. But the “size” of an air conditioner isn’t about the amount of space it takes up. It’s the amount of cooling it can put out. 

Finding the right system for your AC installation in West Chester, PA is more complicated than just picking a system you think is powerful enough to keep your house cool. A home needs a specific size air conditioner, one that’s neither too small or too large. Yes, too large is a problem, and far too many amateurs make the mistake of putting in an air conditioner that’s too powerful for the home it’s supposed to keep comfortable.

Watch Out for the “Overcharged AC”

June 20th, 2022

The overcharge we’re talking about here has nothing to do with the initial price of an air conditioner. An AC system is overcharged if it has too much refrigerant in it. The amount of refrigerant in an air conditioner is known as the system’s charge, and each AC model is designed to use a precise charge. Either too little (undercharged) or too much (overcharged) is bad news for the AC. It leads to malfunctions, poor performance, and an eventual system breakdown.

As you get into your summer preparation in West Chester, PA, we want to address the danger of the overcharged AC. Unfortunately, unscrupulous people posing as HVAC experts often advise homeowners they need to “refill” or “top off”their AC’s refrigerant before summer. This is 100% false! We’ll go into the overcharged AC problem more below.
