Can you imagine suffering through a hot, humid Kentucky summer without a working air conditioner? At Arronco Comfort Air, we work hard to ensure that all of our customers have a good working air conditioner for the summer months. Yet have you ever stopped to consider just how that air conditioner keeps you cool? Here’s a closer look at how air conditioners work.
Your heating and air conditioning system needs to be properly maintained in order to serve your family well. Proper maintenance through annual service and maintenance appointments at the start of the cooling season and the start of the heating season will bring several benefits to your family and your home, but these appointments are easy to overlook. Here are some reasons why HVAC maintenance is critical to fully enjoying your system throughout its expected lifespan.
The sweltering Kentucky summers have certainly made us all say a quiet prayer of thanks for air conditioning on more than one occasion over the years. Inevitably, at one time or another, you’ve also had one of those annoying “summer colds”—commonly thought to have been brought on by the change in weather.
But have you ever considered that the cause of your cold- and flu-like symptoms could be caused by something else—like poor indoor air quality? While your HVAC system doesn’t make your air dirty, it can spread dirty air throughout your home. Your family has to breathe the air inside your home every day, so it’s important to take this into consideration.
Arronco Comfort Air is pleased to inform you of the recent success for homeowners. The Continuing Resolution spending bill signed by President Trump in the early morning hours Friday, February 9, 2018, includes a measure to extend the tax credits for the industry-both residential and commercial for geothermal heating, cooling, & hot water systems. The credits for geothermal, which initially expired December 31, 2016, have been extended to December 31, 2021. They’ll remain at 30% until December 31, 2019, at which point they’ll begin a phase-out. For 2020, the credit will move to 26%, and in 2021 the final incentive will be 22%. The tax credit for geothermal was also made retroactive for all of 2017 geothermal installations.
Whether you’re interested in lowering your utility costs or reducing your impact on the environment, going green isn’t just for progressive thinkers.
