AC and heating issues are difficult for most people to handle. Those looking for helpful advice on how to deal with their air conditioners and heating units now have a new place to turn.
Apache Air Solutions, an HVAC company based out of Clifton New Jersey, recently updated their website to include a blog which they post to many times per week. Each week their posts cover different topics relating to HVAC, and often answer various questions that people with AC and heating problems have.
The company’s domain is the same as it has been since 2011, ApacheAirSolutions.com, but the website has a whole new look.
The blog is usually posted to three times per week. The posts are most relevant to people living in and around New Jersey areas like Clifton, Wayne, and all of Bergen and Passaic counties. However, even those living outside these areas will find the advice on the posts extremely helpful when facing their HVAC related issues.
A recent post from Apache explains how an unmaintained AC unit can lead to water damage in the home.
“The most common cause of a water leak in the summer time is a clogged condensation drain. Let’s explain. Your air conditioner is like a large dehumidifier. As the air conditioner runs, it draws moisture out of the air. Depending on the humidity, the size of your system or how efficiently the air conditioner is running the amount of water can be as little as a pint or as much as a gallon per hour. This ‘condensation’ has to go somewhere.
If your air conditioning unit has not been serviced in a while, then the pipe leading to the drain can clog. A clogged drain can cause extensive damage to property and become a time-consuming mess.”
Another topic that Apache Air recently tackled in a blog post was that of lightning strikes, how they could potentially affect your HVAC units, and how to prevent any harm from coming to them.
“Power surges can harm nearly any electrical device in your home, and at Apache Air we often find air conditioners ruined during lightning storms. This damage can range from simple blown fuses and burnt capacitors to fried compressors and burnt wires.
If a storm is in the vicinity you can prevent AC compressor damage by turning your air conditioner off. Your air conditioner is only susceptible to power surges when the unit is operating. Direct lightning strikes can, however, ruin any air conditioner. Luckily, direct lighting strikes are rare.”
Every week people can check back to learn more about their heating and air conditioning units and get advice on different situations that may arise. Liking the Apache Facebook Page will help keep people up to date on the new posts that make it onto their blog.
