Most of us focus quite rightly on temperature control when it comes to home comfort: keeping our households cool in the heat of the summer and warm on those chilly winter nights. But that’s not the only thing we should factor in when it comes to a healthy and comfortable home. Indoor air quality plays a role as well: cutting down on germs, dust, and similar contaminants. If your home doesn’t quite feel the way it should, an air filter might be the best option for you.
There are a number of reliable products on the market that can meet your indoor air quality needs. We recommend MicroPure air purifiers in particular based on their reliability, their value for the money, and their innovative way of addressing a number of different IAQ issues in a home. And right now, we’re offering a special on indoor air quality consultation that can help determine what your specific needs may be.

Autumn is here and winter will be along before you know it. If your heating system struggled through the previous winter or you feel the time is right to invest in a new system, the fall makes the ideal time to plan and schedule such an operation. Doing so means that you can enjoy the benefits throughout the winter, saving money on more efficient performance and reducing the risk of a breakdown to a minimum.
Planning a heating replacement in the fall also means that you have the time to consider the various factors involved in selecting the right system for your home. Every household is unique and since heaters represent a serious investment in your home, it behooves you to consider all of the factors that go into a new heater. Here are three of the most pertinent ones you should consider when making your choice.

As summer turns to autumn, local residents are going to be using their air conditioners less and less and their heating systems more and more. This makes it an excellent time of the year to schedule maintenance for both halves of your HVAC system. It will do both of them good, and can help ensure that you get a comfortable house in the most efficient manner possible.

Summers are long here in the Austin, TX area, and tend to last well into September. Sooner or later, however, the temperatures will drop, and you’ll be turning off your air conditioning system in favor of your heating system. Before you do, however, you may want to think about the overall age of your system. If it needs replacing, now is the time to do it: before the heating season begins, when you still have time to prepare and schedule a replacement in a timely fashion.

Summers mean muggy air and lots of germs, with everything from mold spores to bacteria and germs floating around just waiting to make our lives miserable. Each unwelcome invader can enter a home extremely easily and remain trapped there for some time. We rarely open our doors and window during the hotter months, after all, which means that germs and mold spores can circulate throughout your home without any way to escape.
The best solution to such problems is a UV air purifier installed into the home’s HVAC system. It can help sterilize the air in the house and provides strong protection against germs and other biological contaminants. Here’s a quick breakdown of how it works.

Air conditioners are designed to last for many years, and with proper care and maintenance, you can stretch that timetable much further. But sooner or later every system needs to be replaced, and with our summers longer and hotter than ever, you may be forced to make that decision in the middle of a blazing heat wave. The question of replacement is usually triggered by a repair call, though that’s not always the case.

Summers in south Texas are hot and humid, which puts your air conditioner in the position of having to perform all day every day in most cases. Ideally, your system will be up for the challenge, though in most cases, higher energy bills are inevitable during the summer months. Be careful, however, that the inevitable reality of paying more for air conditioning during the hottest parts of the year masks the fact that you’re paying more than you should. A few tips and tricks can make a huge difference as far as those high monthly costs go.

Residences in our area spend a lot of time and money keeping their systems running smoothly. A Texas summer is nothing to fool around with, and the more reliable a home air conditioner is the better. That goes doubly so for commercial air conditioning systems, which have a larger load and must work even more reliably than home systems do. You have a business to run, of course, and you don’t want to have to worry about trouble with your air conditioner. A good commercial service can do wonders to ensure that your office is always cool and comfortable.

We tend to think of insulation in our homes as a winter feature, working to keep heat in our homes and prevent our furnaces from having to work as hard as they should. But insulation in your home can be far more than a winter feature, and because we have mild winters here in Texas, a number of homes possess far less insulation than they might. In most cases, this can end up costing you money not only in the winter, but in the summer too. Insulation in your home can do a great deal more than you think.

Summer is here in all but name, and that means you need an air conditioner to function every day in order to keep your home comfortable. If you need a new air conditioner, now is the right time to install it. An older air conditioner on its last legs won’t be able to handle the coming months of high temperatures, and installing a new one now means you won’t have to worry about whether your system is up for the job in the hot weather to come.
