When it comes to AC trouble, there are two kinds:

As a homeowner, thinking that you need to replace your AC now, on top of everything else on your to-do list, is about as enjoyable as considering a root canal.

In the case of your AC, that’s why you want to know for sure when it’s time to install a new system. We’ll discuss three signs below indicating you need to replace your AC.

Whole-house fans used to be the main means for regulating the temperature within a household until modern air conditioning systems came into the picture. Yet, they are still used to complement AC systems for a number of reasons. At Sierra Pacific Home & Comfort, Inc., we specialize in installing whole-house fans, which circulate air by creating specific pressure points throughout your house. In particular, whole-house fans draw in cooler air from outside and vent warmer air out through the attic or roof.
In this post, we discuss four ways a whole-house fan helps you, emphasizing how homeowners can benefit from getting these fans installed.

To improve the performance of your home, all you have to do is take a few common-sense measures.

Your home’s central air conditioning unit is one of the most important features when it comes to your comfort and quality of life. It’s also one of the most specialized—while a homeowner can take on things like minor plumbing, electrical, or carpentry work with confidence, not many homeowners have the specialized knowledge and training required to service or maintain an HVAC system.
Just like your car or many other systems, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance to keep working properly, and it’s a lot easier (and cheaper) to address any problem when it’s at Stage 1 rather than waiting until Stage 4 or 5. Even the best air conditioning unit has a life cycle of about 10 to 15 years, but you can get the most out of that unit with regular maintenance.

HVAC contractors can be a lifesaver during the heat of summer, when temperatures soar and you need your air conditioner to function reliably for days on end in some cases. A quality repair service needs to do the job swiftly and effectively, as well as providing timely maintenance services and even full-bore replacement if you need it.
Every home is different, and your HVAC system likely has unique needs that require specific services to address. What works for your home may not work for another, and so too does your HVAC contractor need to do the job for you specifically. That said, there are several basic traits that you should look for in any quality service. If you spot them, chances are you’re looking at someone who can address your HVAC needs the right way.
