When Is the Best Time for Air Conditioning Maintenance?

May 22nd, 2017

best-time-air-conditioner-maintenanceEven the most efficient of professionally installed air conditioning systems can fail when they don’t receive routine care. When your air conditioner is running full-time over the summer to keep you comfortable, the occasional issue is to be expected. But repair needs will crop up more frequently if your cooling system doesn’t receive the level of professional service that it needs.

We recommend that you invest in an Ogden, UT AC tune-up once a year, and before you need it the most—so, now! Although, if you’re using a heat pump—which is a year-round system—then you’ll want to increase this service to twice a year. Keep reading to learn more about why you should never skip your routine maintenance appointment for your AC.

May 8th, 2017

humidifier-installed-best-timeLiving in Utah, we are all too familiar with the experience of dry air. The lack of moisture in the air can cause a variety of the problems in the home, particularly during the summer when you need to run your air conditioner to keep the heat away—because your air conditioner actually helps dehumidify your home, decreasing the already low levels of moisture.

If you aren’t already taking advantage of a whole-home humidifying system, then the best time for a Layton, UT humidifier installation is right now, while our current humidity levels are relatively balanced. You’ve likely seen portable humidifiers in drug stores, used to help alleviate cold symptoms or even allergy symptoms, especially for young children.
