Fall Outdoor AC Maintenance: Why Should You Clean Your Condenser Coil and How?

When the weather begins to cool down in the fall, you may turn off your cooling system for the rest of the year. After you shut down your cooling system, don't forget to check and clean the system and then make any necessary repairs to the system, including to the unit outside your home. The outdoor unit, or condenser, can stop working next summer if its cooling coil contains grass and dirt. Cleaning the unit now may help you avoid trouble later.

Why Cleaning Your AC Filter Is Critical

An HVAC system has to have a constant supply of air in order to function properly. While you could get all the airflow you need by removing your AC filter, which restricts airflow as it removes dust, your AC unit would be inundated with dust, which would clog up system components. Thus, it is critical to have an air filter, but it is also important to properly maintain it.  Change Your Filter Regularly

3 Reasons Why a Commercial Freezer Might Stop Getting Cold

Are you puzzled as to why one of the freezers in your convenience store has stopped keeping food cold? If your freezer is not simply going out from normal wear and tear, there are a few things that may have caused the temperature to change to the point of not keeping food cold. Here are a few parts of a commercial freezer that can become problematic and prevent food from staying frozen:

Can You Really Heat Your Whole Home with a Pellet Stove?

The idea of heating an entire house with wood may sound very 18th century. But thanks to new technology, it is now possible to heat an entire, average- to large-sized home to a comfortable temperature just by burning wood pellets. And it's not nearly as inconvenient as you might assume! The main apparatus that makes this possible is the pellet stove, which burns compacted wood pellets typically made from bark and other wood scraps that would otherwise rot away in a landfill.

Airflow Problems And Evaporator Coil Frosting

An air conditioning system usually cools a room by absorbing heat from air and then dumping the cooled air into the room. This process is made possible by the fact that as it turns from a liquid to a gas, the air conditioner refrigerant absorbs heat. In this case, the heat it absorbs is usually from the air blowing over the evaporator coils. Normally, an air conditioning system is designed in such a way that the air blowing over the evaporator coils can provide enough heat not to cause extreme temperature drops in this area.
