Why Use the Better Business Bureau

     People today are often overwhelmed with the choices of whom to do business with. There are more than 30 million businesses in North America alone, not including millions of websites to go to. The BBB was formed, to be able to give consumers unbiased, verified, information about how businesses work with customers. They help consumers identify trustworthy businesses, and those who are not.

Are You Having More Air Conditioning problems?

Well, here we are in the dog days of summer. Here in Boise and Meridian Idaho, that means hot, hot weather. I was in an apartment complex and each building has 12 apartments and let me tell you what. Those twelve air conditioners were humming their little heart out trying to keep everyone cool.

If you are like me, you live a busy, busy life. It's so easy to either forget to turn your T-stat down when you leave your home, or at night when you retire. Also, when you come home from work and your house is freezing, and you rush to turn up heat.

So, the question is, which one is right for you? In this blog I will provide some basic information about them.

Why Your Air Conditioner Can't Keep Up

Your Boise air conditioner is working, but it's not "keeping up". It feels like the air coming out is cool enough but the house never gets to the point where it's really comfortable. What causes this problem?

 #1: Your AC unit is undersized for the space you're trying to cool.

For example, a small window unit can't be expected to cool a space beyond the room that it's in. That unit could run 24/7 but it doesn't have the capacity to keep up with triple digit heat.

Is Your Air Conditioner the Right Size?

Do you know what size air conditioner you have? Many do not, let alone knowing the importance of the right sized unit. Ensuring that your AC unit is the correct size is important for a number of reasons.Find out below the problems of a wrong-sized AC and the benefits of the right one! When we talk about size we are referring to the tonnage of the unit, i.e. 2 ton, 3 ton, etc.

The right Size Matters:

Is a Heat Pump Better than a Air Conditioner?

     When you think of cooling your Boise home, you probably think, air conditioner, swamp cooler, or window fan. As it turns out, a heat pump can be a preferred way of cooling your home. Wait! "Heat to cool your home?? Well, that’s a bit of misnomer. A heat pump can both heat, and cool your home.  In some parts of the country where the winter temperatures seldom get below 30 degrees, a heat pump is a great advantage because you won't need a separate back of heat source like a furnace or air handler.

When it comes to heating and cooling your Boise home, most home owners are in search of the most cost effective and energy efficient system possible. Generally, most homes here in the valley have some type of HVAC system for controlling indoor temperatures. Typical HVAC systems, many of which reduce fossil fuels, waste energy and increase monthly living costs, are the reasons Boise home owners are taking an interest in hybrid heating systems to address some of these concerns.
