HEATING & COOLING INSIGHTS

BLOG

A breeze of cold air is nice when out on a boat on a lake. Cold air coming from a furnace is not as pleasant, though. Cold air doesn't heat a home during cold winter seasons. Without hot air inside the house, your comfort level drops, and you run the risk of bursting pipes and causing other issues. Here are some reasons why a furnace may be blowing cold air.

If you have pets, you are more likely to have air quality issues in your house. This is because their fur or dander can get and stay in the air. Animals can also bring in dirt, dust, or pollen that can make its way throughout the home. How can you keep the air as clean as possible?

 

Sweep and Vacuum Regularly


The easiest way to keep fur or other particles out of the air is to keep such items off the floor or from getting deep into the carpet. This can be done by regularly sweeping wood floors or by vacuuming carpets to remove as much fur, dander, and other particles as possible. It may be a good idea to have floors professionally cleaned on a monthly or quarterly basis.

 

 

Groom Your Pets


Brushing your pet or having its coat trimmed can help to reduce the amount of fur that it sheds in the house. It may also be a good idea to have your pet wear boots or a coat when it goes outside. This can keep the fur dry, which makes it less likely that anything will stick to it. If it can’t stick to your animal, there’s less of a chance that it can be brought inside.

 

 

Have Air Filters Replaced Every 30 Days


Under normal conditions, you can generally keep an air filter in place for about 90 days. However, at Dave Broussard A/C & Heating in Broussard, we recommend changing air filters on a more frequent basis if you have pets. This helps circulate dander-free air throughout your home.

 

If you are looking to keep your home's air safe to breathe, we can help you change your air filter, repair a heater, or maintain an air conditioner. We can also install insulation or a generator to ensure that your home is able to function as it should all year long. Call Dave Broussard A/C & Heating today to set up an appointment.

It is very common for homeowners to overwork their AC system. This can cause the unit to break down, or at least cause parts to wear out more quickly than they should. Unfortunately, many homeowners are not familiar with the signs that they are overworking their air conditioners. Key signs may include the AC unit freezing over or the system failing to get the temperature down to what you have specified. To learn more about the signs that your AC system is being overworked, read on.

 

The AC Unit Freezes Over


It is quite common for AC units to freeze over. Some owners may think that this is simply indicating that the AC unit is keeping their house nice and cool. However, they may not know that it is actually a problem. However, an AC unit that freezes over is a symptom of one of several different problems. One of the possible issues causing an AC to freeze over is that the system is being overworked. If your AC unit is frozen over, raise your specified temperature and see if the frost clears up. If the frost is still there, contact a professional for repair or replacement services. 

 

 

Your AC Unit Cannot Get Down to Your Specified Temperature


If you set a low temperature and your AC unit simply could not get down to it, it will be overworked. This is because AC units usually turn off when they have achieved the desired temperature and only turn on to maintain it. If your AC unit is constantly working to maintain an impossibly cold temperature, it will be straining quite hard. As previously mentioned, this could lead to a breakdown in the AC system if it continues for an extended period of time.
