With spring fast approaching, it's time to consider optimizing your home for the upcoming warm weather. One sure way to make indoor living more comfortable year-round is to invest in air conditioning. With increasing temperatures, there are several reasons why having an air conditioner installed is beneficial, from improved health and comfort levels inside your home to better energy efficiency ratings when using modern systems. Learn more about AC installation and discover three reasons for installing your air conditioning this spring.

What to Know About AC Installation

Adding an air conditioner to your home comes with several benefits—and not just during the warmer months. If you're wondering how much AC your home really needs, consider the following questions:

  • What type of AC system is suitable for my home?
  • How powerful should the unit be, and what size do I need?
  • Are there any additional features or accessories I should consider?

A Bob's Heating sales representative can help you find answers to these questions when you're looking to decide on the best air conditioning system for your home.

Once you commit to adding an air conditioner or heat pump to your home, consider the following reasons to have the installation completed before summer arrives.

Beat the Rush

Many of the best AC contractors are booked during summer when demand is highest, so scheduling an installation in spring provides you with plenty of extra time and better access to inventory options.

Prepping Your Home for the Upcoming Winter Season



As the winter season approaches faster than many of us had hoped for, it becomes more critical to prepare your home and keep your mind at ease when the weather starts to turn. Many may not realize how much winter can impact your home, so taking the proper precautions will help to get you and your home ready for the winter season. It is very important to take care of your home's exterior and interior when preparing for the chilly weather. Who wants to worry about having to take on any home projects when it’s cold out? Our guess is, no one!

This article will walk you through what you should have in your home for winter and what to mark off of your checklist before the first snowfall.

Invest in a Smart Thermostat

After returning home from a long day at work on a cold winter afternoon, the last thing you want is to walk into a frigid house. If you’re wondering how you would be able to avoid that, we have the answer for you – smart thermostats! A smart thermostat can be controlled from your smartphone, so you’re able to turn your heat on and off with the tap of a finger. This makes it quick and easy to manage your home’s temperature while the system itself helps to save you money and energy.

If you don’t already have a smart thermostat and are considering one, making the choice sooner rather than later will add to a comfortable home and reduced utility bills. Installing this type of thermostat is something that should be done before winter hits in case any incidents occur, such as faulty wires or power outages. If you’re unfamiliar with thermostats and their installation, Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning can help you install a smart thermostat for your home.

Check your Home’s Insulation

Before winter hits, creating a checklist of what needs to be done will also help you to get your home ready. One of the items on the checklist should be to check your home’s insulation during the summer or fall to allow you to find and resolve any problems that arise. Due to the temperature drop outside as winter progresses, ensuring your home is properly insulated will help keep your home warm. Your windows, siding, attic, and basement should all be insulated to avoid any cold air from entering your home.

HVAC Spring Cleaning in 3 Easy Steps


Spring welcomes the birth of new beginnings everywhere. It is the perfect season to turn over a new leaf, so to speak. It also happens to be the best time to tackle HVAC spring cleaning. Get your home prepped and ready for the warm seasons ahead by following these three easy steps!

How to Clean an HVAC Filter


Your HVAC unit needs a little TLC to work at peak performance. One of the most important things you can do for your system is to schedule preventive maintenance in the spring and fall, ahead of seasons where you’ll depend on your central air system for round-the-clock comfort.

Between maintenance visits, however, you need to be diligent about changing or cleaning the filter. Here’s how:

Five Tips for Properly Disposing of an Old Air Filter


Your home air filter is perhaps one of the most important parts of your HVAC system. So many of the issues that could cause your system to slow down or stop working entirely can be attributed, at least partially, to an old or clogged up air filter, so regularly changing your filter is an important part of home maintenance. However, once you change your air filter, your old furnace air filter may release dirt and debris back into the air in your home, which could lessen your indoor air quality.

This brings up a question that many people want to know the answer to: how should you properly dispose of an old air filter? Air filters have the benefit of being disposable in your regular trash, but what can you do to prevent all of the airborne debris trapped in the filter from escaping again as soon as you move it? Here are a few disposal tips you can follow.

Why You Should Choose Central A/C Over Window Units


As summer progresses and the weather gets hotter, most people will do anything to keep their homes cool. Air conditioners are an essential way to do this. Some people prefer small window A/C units while others like a central air conditioning system. At Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend central A/C units over window systems. In this blog, we will explain why a central A/C unit over a window system is the right choice for you.

Your home is more than just four walls; it equates to security and comfort for you and your family. When the outdoor temperatures soar, you’ll want to escape to a cool dwelling space.

Air Conditioning Mistakes That Are Costing You Money


In the hottest parts of the summer, an inefficient HVAC system can run for much of the day. Older units tend to be less efficient than newer ones, but there are ways you can improve the performance of your air conditioning system.

Don’t Ignore These Furnace Noises


If you have an older furnace, strange banging, clanking, and whistling sounds are no strangers to your home. However, if your furnace is relatively new, your unit should be almost completely silent while it operates. Either way, it is not a good sign when your heating unit produces strange sounds. If you hear the following noises, you should have your furnace inspected by a professional HVAC technician.
