It's Back...Our 2nd Annual Ugliest Heater Contest

It’s been almost a year since we awarded Chris Koelle of Mays Landing a NEW Heater for having the oldest and ugliest heater submitted to our team and voted on by our loyal friends and followers! And we are ready to do it again...

Chris and his family spent the winter of 2017-2018 in complete comfort with a new heating system awarded to him after submitting his entry in our 2017 Ugliest Heater Contest. Once he submitted his entry, he was selected as one of our five finalists; which then went on to the public voting round of the competition. Although it was close, Chris edged out his competition with 97 votes to become the public’s choice for a new system.

Chris and his family will enjoy their new heating system for years to come. We were so happy to provide this awesome family a new heater just before the cold winter months of 2017 that we decided to make this competition an annual event! Are you ready to win a new heater before the winter of 2018?

Why is My Upstairs Bedroom Still So Stinkin' Hot?

We get this question a lot — Summer & Winter. When a home or larger area is controlled by a single air conditioning system, differences in temperature are common. This can often occur because of an imbalance in the air flow to rooms. It frequently occurs when a two story house is served by a single heating and cooling system having just one thermostat.

What do you need to know to understand why this happens, and what do you need to do to fix this issue once and for all? In our world, this is known as a temperature differential and it can be caused by any one of the reasons mentioned below. But don't worry, there is a solution!

3 Simple Ways to Get Your Home Running Properly this Summer

Well, they’re finally here -- the dog days of summer. While this period between July and August is among the hottest days for the entire Northern Hemisphere, we have everything you need to stay cool, comfortable, and to keep your home running properly during this summer season. Here’s how to make the most out of not only your summer, but your whole year.

Get Maintenance

It’s simple — the more you use your air conditioning system during these scorching months, the harder it needs to work to keep your home cool. Eventually, the components inside these units will experience wear and tear and break down at a faster rate. Believe me, the last thing you want during this summer is a complete breakdown of your AC in the heat and humidity; which can not only leave you uncomfortable, but also cause a major disruption in your life!

Investing in a proper maintenance plan can keep your system running efficiently, and may even save you money on reduced utilities. We offer great rates to give you that piece of mind. To learn more, go to our service plan page.

4 Reasons to Replace Your HVAC System As Soon As Possible

When there’s an issue with your home’s heating or cooling system, it’s pretty easy to brush it off. We can all say, “I’ll take care of this tomorrow"; but never really do anything about it.

We understand that it’s not easy to store away thousands of dollars in the case your HVAC system stops working, so we’re here to help. We’ll work with you through every step of the process to ensure that you and your family are happy with your purchase.

Understanding the Impact of Salt Air on Your Air Conditioner

If you're a homeowner at the Jersey Shore, you have probably seen the effects of the corrosive salt atmosphere around your property. At a minimum, electrical fixtures & exterior door hardware tend to deteriorate quickly, outdoor furniture can fall apart prematurely and windows get grimy.

Your air conditioner is impacted too. The average life of an air conditioner across the country (in normal conditions) is about 15 years. In the salt air of the shore you’re doing well if your air conditioner lasts 10 years or longer (we’ve seen air conditioning units needing to be replaced in as little as 4 years).

 

How do you know if your air conditioner needs help?

Ductless AC: Your Permanent Solution to Hot Spots

If you live in Cape May County or Atlantic County, there is no question that you know just how hot it can get in the summertime. While many Jersey Shore Homeowners use their home as a shelter from the blistering heat, if you have an underperforming or inadequate AC System, hot spots might be making that easier said than done. In most cases, the reason why your air conditioner isn’t getting the job done is due to hot spots, or pockets of hot air where the cold air cannot penetrate. These hot spots can make it so one room of your home is nice and cool while another is insufferably hot.
