When we talk about oversized air conditioners, we are discussing systems that are set up to produce too much cooling power for your home. While this could sound like a great idea (more cooling power in the summer sounds more comfortable to a lot of people) it is actually one that will produce more problems than anything else.

We want to ensure you are comfortable this summer and the sizing of your air conditioning system plays a huge role in this. Let us explain why having an oversized AC is just as detrimental to your comfort as an undersized one.

Ice on Your AC Is a Problem

Monday, April 20th, 2020

ice-on-air-conditionerMaybe you’ve seen it in a movie or even seen it on your neighbors AC unit: that layer of ice around the system that seems to give off the idea that the air conditioner is keeping things really cool.

Handling Leaking Ductwork

Monday, April 6th, 2020

hand-sealing-ductworkThe ductwork in your home is important for delivering the conditioned air required to keep things comfortable and cool throughout the year. Without your ducts, your central air conditioner, or your ducted heat pump, isn’t going to be able to properly do its job. However, hearing that your ducts have sprung a leak can be a little confusing.

When we refer to leaking ducts, we are talking about ductwork that has small breaks in its body where the air your air conditioning system is making is being allowed to escape. As you can imagine this is problematic when you are trying to maintain your home comfort–in fact, duct leaks are known for causing between a 15 to 40% home energy loss.

We can provide a reliable solution to this problem. All you have to do is reach out.
