I hear a banging noise, should I call for service?
It’s difficult to diagnose sounds without being in your home to hear them, so in many cases a service call is the peace of mind you need to feel comfortable. There are plenty of times we come out and the solution is simple, but other times it can be an indicator of something much more serious. Give us a call, or send us a note and we will help you determine what fits your needs best.
I think there may be a leak somewhere in the wall/ceiling, should I call you to investigate?
It’s difficult to trace back the route of water leak issues. Sometimes it’s related to plumbing pipes, other times cooling systems need more insulation around the ductwork and condensation begins to drip down. It can be a drainage issue in the system or other issues.
What is certain is that water leak problems should be addressed immediately since they can result in severe damages and, if left unchecked, black mold causing respiratory issues in your home over time. Contact us, and if it makes sense to come out and take a look we can see if it’s related to your system, or at the very least help steer you in the right direction from there. It’s also possible it may be related to a chimney in your home depending on the leak’s location, we can address that as well.
My air conditioning always worked fine but all of a sudden it seems like it’s not cooling properly, do I need a new system?
