Top 3 from AIRE SERVE of Summerville.

Commercial Top 3 from AIRE SERVE of Summerville. Thank you AIRE SERV of Summerville, SC for your HVAC Top 3!

Summer is just about in full swing and as the temperature rises outside, we start cranking down the temperature inside!  This time of year has local air conditioning companies working around the clock repairing or replacing faulty units.  Here at SERVPRO of Greather Northern Charleston there is also a spike in the number calls we get when rooms are flooding by clogged AC lines or overflowing drain pans.  For this installment of Top 3, we reached out to our favorite HVAC contractor, Russell Harshman, the General Manager at AIRE SERVE of Summerville, to find out his top 3 word of advice to make sure your summer is a cool as possible.

Top 3 words of wisdom in the HVAC world in Charleston:

Have routine maintenance.   A lot of homeowners (especially new homes) let maintenance go by the wayside. Here at AIRE SERV, we recommend twice a year maintenance to prevent breakdowns in operation and efficiency. Make sure the technician does a thorough electrical inspection on your indoor and outdoor unit, clears the drain line, cleans the evaporator and condenser coils, and checks refrigerant pressures. Ask for a report showing measurements for your records, if they cannot provide this then I would take it as a cautionary sign.

Use reviews and referrals.  Charleston is a busy place with a lot of new-comers to the area. When problems arise a lot of folks don’t know who to call, so they ask for a referral from a local friend or a neighbor. More often these days people are turning to their neighborhood Facebook page for referrals and it has really changed the dynamic of finding what will work best for you in your area. AIRE SERV recommends you still do your research on the contractor using review websites easily found online. Things on the company webpage like 24/7/365 service, drug testing, background screens on employees and satisfaction guarantees are very important. AIRE SERV OFFERS ALL OF THESE TO EVERY CUSTOMER, EVERYDAY.

Don’t waste any more money on R-22 FREON.  R-22 FREON is the type of refrigerant over half of South Carolina still uses to cool and heat their home. January 1, 2020 the EPA will complete the phase out of this gas by making it illegal to manufacture or import in the U.S. ...FOREVER! This means that any homeowner with an R-22 system in their home would, could or will find themselves in a position where their HVAC system will cost an unreasonable amount to repair in the event they need FREON to fix your system. Since this is a very common repair item, the problem will also get more common the closer we get to 2020. Homeowners will be forced to replace the entire system re-actively based on the cost of R-22 alone. At AIRE SERV, we recommend consulting with an HVAC professional to talk about the options to replace your system before then, PRO-ACTIVELY. To get your NO-COST NO-PRESSURE consultation, CALL AIRE SERV TODAY!

STAY COOL AND BREATH EASY CHARLESTON!
