What is a heating leak search?
When your HVAC system has a refrigerant leak, detecting the source isn’t always easy. A leak search relies on bubbles or electronic leak detectors to pick up the tiniest leakages.
Do I really need to change my filters?
Proper airflow keeps your components cool. Without it, they can overheat and break down. Dirty filters also send dust and debris into your home, reducing your air quality.
How do I know I have a carbon monoxide leak?
Even low levels of exposure can cause dizziness and nausea. This colorless, odorless gas is best avoided via frequent maintenance.
