Exploring The Importance Of Air Conditioner Maintenance

Hello, my name is Darby Aldrich. I would like to talk to you about the importance of maintaining your air conditioning system. When I moved to a hot climate, I did not realize how vital having a running air conditioner was for living comfortably. When the unit just stopped working one day, the temperature inside the house rivaled the piping hot weather outdoors. We had to go to the community center to keep the kids from feeling sick. While we were gone, we had a local HVAC contractor fix the unit. She let us know that some simple maintenance tasks would prevent that situation in the future. I will use this site to closely explore those tasks in great detail. I hope you can use the information to keep your air conditioner running like new. Thanks.

Four Benefits Of A Geothermal Climate Control System


Geothermal heating and cooling systems are a unique form of climate control for both residential and commercial properties that make use of the earth itself as either a heat sink to move air out of the interior of your property or a heat source to provide heating to the interior, depending on the season. Understanding some of the advantages associated with this unique method of climate control can help you determine if inquiring about installing a geothermal climate control system is the best bet for your needs.


One of the largest advantages associated with geothermal climate control systems is the fact that they are highly efficient at providing heating and cooling, even over larger areas. This is because they are effectively heat pumps, pulling heat from or dumping heat into the ground depending on the season; they don't actually generate heating or cooling themselves. This means that geothermal systems tend to have lower operating costs when compared to traditional forced air systems, which can help to pay down the installation cost of a geothermal system.

Environmentally Friendly

Another advantage associated with geothermal climate control systems is the fact that they are extremely environmentally friendly, using just a minimal amount of electricity to move heat into or out of your property. Since they don't use natural gas or non-renewable energy to power their operation, geothermal systems thus do not create any sort of emissions with normal operation. This is also an important safety consideration, as there are no flammable materials associated with geothermal climate control.

Low Maintenance and Low Profile

Another huge advantage associated with geothermal climate control systems for either residential or commercial properties is the fact that, after installation, they require very little maintenance to stay in good working order. This is because geothermal systems have very few moving parts, and thus are at a very low risk of becoming inoperable or malfunctioning through normal operation. Furthermore, this lack of moving parts means that geothermal climate control systems are extremely quiet and low profile while operating, reducing ambient noise and keeping your property sufficiently comfortable without any of the distracting or unpleasant noises usually associated with ductwork.

Property Value

Another key consideration when it comes to installing a geothermal climate control system is the fact that, due to the above advantages, the installation of such a system can have a huge effect on your property value, which is relevant to owned property whether it is commercial or residential. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of a more efficient climate control system in the short term and to recoup the costs of installation if you decide to move to a new property at any point in the future.
