Summer Heat + Fresh Air? An ERV Can Do That!

When it’s a hot day and you need to have your home’s air conditioning system running, do you keep the windows and doors open? We hope not, since this will cause the AC to waste power as it runs. The air conditioner must work harder to remove the heat from your home as heat is rushing in through open windows. 

Unfortunately, when you seal up your home for the AC, you also seal out fresh air. Modern homes are built so tightly for energy efficiency that they don’t “breathe” much. During a hot summer, you may find your household air becoming stale and dusty because there hasn’t been enough fresh air brought in.

Did you know that there’s a way around this dilemma? It’s called an energy recovery ventilator. We offer installation of energy recovery ventilators in Sandersville, GA, and we’d like to explain how one of these devices can really improve your comfort, energy bills, and indoor air quality.

The Reasons an Oversized AC Is a Problem

July 8th, 2024

When you install a new central air conditioning system for your home, one of the most important decisions to make is the size of the AC. This doesn’t refer to its physical size, but the amount of cooling power it can provide. If an air conditioner is undersized, it won’t be able to cool the house enough to reach the target temperatures on the thermostat. 

But what about an oversized AC? That doesn’t sound so bad—having too much cooling shouldn’t be a problem. 

Unfortunately, you can’t err on the side of being too big with an AC. An oversized air conditioner will create many problems. If you plan on an air conditioning replacement in Maysville, make sure you work with professionals like ours so your AC will be the exact size it needs to be.

You may occasionally have to go to the circuit breaker panel in your home to reset a tripped breaker. Some appliances can create power surges that trip breakers, although this should never be something that happens regularly. 

Because your AC is one of the most powerful electrical appliances in your home (often the most powerful), it might trip the power breaker if it’s pushed for too long. However, if the AC is tripping the circuit breaker repeatedly, then it means something more serious is wrong. You may need to schedule air conditioning repair in Forsyth, GA. Below, we’ll look into why this might happen.

What Parts Make a Heat Pump Different From an AC?

July 8th, 2024

Making the change from using a standard central air conditioning system to a heat pump isn’t difficult. Heat pumps operate in a similar way to air conditioners and contain most of the same components to do the job. It’s not difficult for installers to remove a standard AC and put a heat pump in its place. Externally, they look similar, so most non-experts can’t tell them apart.

Of course, they do have differences, because the heat pump can do what the AC cannot—work in heating mode as well as cooling mode. Because we have extensive experience with heat pump installation and heat pump repair in Glenwood, GA, we know all about the components of a heat pump that allow it to do these two jobs. We’re going to list the most important of these parts below to help you get a better sense of what your heat pump does—or what you’ll want from the heat pump you’re planning to install.

The idea of an air conditioner that’s almost continuously sending out cool air may seem refreshing during the hottest days of the summer, but it will soon lead to a house that’s too cold and electric bills that are far too high.
