Trends are important, right? We look to trends to determine certain things. Sometimes we need trends to help us decide to wear. Sometimes we need trends to tell us what to eat. Sometimes we need trends to help us make some of our life decisions. These trends should be somewhat predictable over time and help contribute something of value to our lives. This value could be in the form of money savings or it could be something that increases our material quality of life.
Regardless, and whether we want to believe it or not, trends help us choose.
With Heating and Air, finding trends are not that hard. In the Tennessee Valley, our weather is somewhat (emphases on “somewhat”) predictable. We know summer time, specifically middle August summer, will produce heat and humidity. It is just how it is. Now, based on this trend we are able to assume certain things. Among those things we can reasonably predict how your AC unit should be functioning. Listed below are a few cause and effect scenarios for this time of year you may be dealing with, some of which you may not even be aware of.
1) Your duct work is sweating, is trending. Now, in years past we would just chalk this up to, “oh, it’s the South. You have to put up with some sweaty duct work.” False! Fact: You do not. Your sweaty duct work could be contributed to insufficient insulation, poor installation, excessive humidity, bad vapor barrier or all the above. Nevertheless, you do not have to deal with this. Replacing this stuff is possible and affordable. Rid yourself of increased power bills and excessive humidity. Water is not your friend. Get rid of it.
2) Mice could be in your crawl space is trending. This trend is a thing. Especially this year for some reason. These little critters will do a number on your duct work. They will slice through it like butter. This will cause your power bills to go up as well as your indoor air temperature. Cute maybe? Destructive, definitely.
3) Your Evaporator coil is dirty is definitely trending. Yes, it is. You may of just had it cleaned, but it is still dirty. It is just how it goes. Our climate has a great deal of humidity. We all know that. That humid air passing over a cold Evaporator coil is the perfect place for dirt to cling to. Over time dirt builds up more. It then insulates and stops up the coil causing a myriad of problems ranging from poor air flow to frozen evaporator coils. Its dirty, trust me.

4) College football starting is trending too! I’m not going get into who is the best team… mostly because I want you to be our customer, still, we are excited!
Anyways, look, this stuff can get pretty complicated, especially if you have more than one issue going on. We are here to help out the North Georgia and Chattanooga area feel comfortable for less. We are affordable and reasonable. Let us know if we can help with some of these trends.
