Does My AC Thermostat Need To Be Replaced?

July 18th, 2022

The thermostat doesn’t receive as much attention as it deserves as part of a home’s HVAC system. After all, it doesn’t feel like it’s connected to the bigger machinery of the air conditioner such as the blower, the heater, and the ductwork. But the thermostat is the control panel for a comfort system, the “brains” of the heating and cooling.

The Best AC Systems

June 27th, 2022

Once upon a time, if you wanted air conditioning for your house, you only had two options. You could purchase separate window AC units or you could use a central air conditioning system. The first option was never ideal—window ACs are awkward, don’t offer enough cooling power, block windows, and are generally impractical for providing comfort to an entire home.
