Do I Need Air Conditioning and/or Heating Service?

If you think something’s wrong with your home’s HVAC system, then the best course of action is to get it checked out by a professional. Avoiding this, or simply ignoring the signs, can result in increased energy costs. If your HVAC unit ends up requiring repairs and you put them off for too long, the cost of said repairs will be much higher than if the issue was dealt with when it first arose.

My Air Conditioner/Heating System Is Working Fine. Does It Still Require Maintenance?

HVAC systems are machines and all machines require maintenance, even if they’re working fine. Omega Electrical recommends regular check-ups twice per year, before summer and before winter. This way, your HVAC unit can be ready to take on the harsher temperatures.

Should I Convert to Refrigerated Air?

Simply put, yes. When you convert your swamp cooler to refrigerated air, you’ll benefit greatly almost immediately. The conversion is simple since it will make use of the vents that already run through your home. Refrigerated air allows homeowners to have a more consistent, comfortable temperature within their homes.

What’s the Deal with Air Filters?

Air filters help keep dust and allergens at bay but they must be replaced on a regular basis. There are two types of filters: disposable and washable. Disposable filters should be replaced regularly, and washable ones should be washed regularly as well. This way, you can rest assured knowing your home is safe from unwanted dust.

When Should I Call an Electrician?

In most cases, you should call an electrician in case of an emergency. If your home’s suffered from breaker panel issues or from electrical failures, your best bet is to seek professional assistance. If your home is older, it may be time to replace the electrical system. An upgrade can help your home become more efficient.
