It’s been a hot summer in Rhode Island, and for most of us, that means our air conditioners have been running on a consistent basis to increase home comfort. For anyone who has ever experienced what it’s like to have to deal with emergency repairs when outside temperatures are at their hottest, being unprepared for summer heat is simply not an option ever again.

How it works: An indoor fan pulls warm air out of a room, which is then converted into cool air via a ductless evaporator coil and a refrigerant.

Impressive Energy Savings

Did you know that ductless systems can also provide heat? Heat pumps are as much as 40% more efficient than standard electric furnaces and baseboard heaters.

Ducts alone can lead to a 30% loss in energy consumption, and since heat pumps are ductless, this isn’t a problem.

For Rhode Island residents who are getting their homes ready for the summer, the air conditioner is often the first point of focus. Rhode Island summers tend to be comfortable, but every year brings with it at least a handful of days that are so hot that it can be difficult to stand without AC. This being said, many people don’t realize that their AC units aren’t functioning properly and perhaps have not been for quite some time.

The transition from spring to summer has been quite enjoyable here in Rhode Island, with temperatures soaring and sunshine brightening up our days. While many people are getting outside and spending as much time in the sun as possible, others are worrying about whether or not their cooling systems are in good enough shape to handle the responsibilities of summer.

We’re on the precipice of summer here in Rhode Island, and it’s time to make sure that you and your family are ready for some fun in the sun. What many people don’t realize in anticipation of the warmer weather is just how important it is to ensure that your home is properly cooled for when the hot temps hit. Air conditioning maintenance can, unfortunately, easily go overlooked. If your AC unit is on the older side, there’s a good chance that you could benefit from replacing it.

Spring is in the air, which has many Rhode Island homeowners taking a moment to clean up around the house now that the winter weather is gone. While tasks such as cleaning baseboards and vacuuming corners often come to mind, one of the most important places to look when getting ready for the warmer months is your air conditioner. Air conditioner maintenance plays a major role in home performance, and ignoring it year after year will lead to nothing but problems in the long run.

Let’s face it: Rhode Island seasons can be difficult to deal with sometimes. When the snow starts falling, or when the heat begins,  RI homeowners owe it to themselves to ensure that their heating and cooling systems are functioning at peak performance. Many people who have purchased relatively new equipment believe the systems will last for years without any issues.

It’s the time of year when storms start to come out of the woodwork and hit Rhode Island homeowners hard, and one of the biggest side effects of this rough weather is losing power. We tend to take power for granted, but what happens when it goes out and you’re unprepared?

It’s a scenario that far too many homeowners in Rhode Island have experienced, but the good thing is that you don’t have to if you’re careful. The solution? A backup generator. Here are just a few reasons why having one is a good idea.

The winter weather is causing many Rhode Island residents to hibernate indoors until spring arrives, which means we’re all paying much closer attention to how our heating systems are functioning. A frequently asked question from customers is in regards to dirty furnace filters. Dirty filters are an incredibly common issue that can stem from a variety of different sources. Understanding the problem comes down to pinpointing exactly why it started in the first place.
