It’s Time to Upgrade From a Window AC

June 5th, 2023

Isn’t it a pain to lug that big, energy-sucking monster from the closet every year? It barely fits in your window, it doesn’t even work very well, and it could lead to a serious back injury in the future if you’re not careful. Those window air conditioners are heavy, and not an easy thing to set up with only one or two people.

But that’s not what we’re going to focus on today. If you live in an apartment or don’t have access to an entire private living space, then they’re perfect for that. But if you’re a homeowner, or someone with an extended living space that could be cooled in its entirety, then we’d like the make the case today to finally upgrade.

Yep, it’s that time we talked about the big ugly elephant in the room (or in the window). If you’ve thought about searching online for “central air installation near me,” but you’re worried about the costs, then let’s talk about the costs of not getting this upgrade.

The “Goldilocks Problem” With Water Heaters

April 24th, 2023

Water heater service can be tricky. Depending on the problem, a water heater can have all sorts of malfunctions. They can leak, run into sediment problems, corrode, and even have trouble regulating the temperature. While we don’t have the time and space to talk about every problem your water heater can exhibit, we will focus on one: poor temperature regulation.

Every water heater has a temperature setting that is usually set up by a professional that specifies the temperature the water will be kept at. Then, when it’s sent to your appliance, it mixes with cold water for your desired temperature specification. However, sometimes homeowners can find their water to be brutally cold even if it’s supposed to be hot. Or, the water might be scalding hot when it’s supposed to be warm. This can be a big problem with a water heater installation in New Castle, and we aim to fix it.

Is Early AC Repair Better?

March 13th, 2023

The short answer is yes, absolutely. But to answer that question in full, we need to discuss a few nuanced points about air conditioning repair. When you detect a problem, no matter what time of the year it is, you should get it fixed. Greenfield AC repair is offered to residential customers all the time, because air conditioners don’t usually choose the most convenient times to have trouble.

Down below, we’ll get into the reasons why skipping AC repair until a convenient time for you and your family might make things more expensive in the long run.

When Is It Time to Replace Your Heater?

January 30th, 2023

Heating systems do have expiration dates, contrary to what many people think. We’ve all got that family member or neighbor who still runs that old 20 or 30-year-old heating system that technically still works, but looks like it’s about to fall apart at any minute.

Heating systems are not muscle cars. They’re not intended to work for decades beyond when they were originally designed.
