Radon Levels in Your Home: What You Should Know

Written by Rick Lucazak on . Posted in Blog

If you’ve recently bought a new home, you may have had an appraisal, inspection and radon test as part of the purchasing process. These items are often required by the mortgage lender; extending a loan secured by a home that harbors a dangerous condition or is structurally unsound can cost the lender money, so ensuring your home meets or exceeds all relevant standards can render it a much safer investment.

Generally, the results of your radon test won’t be reported to you unless they indicate high radon levels inside the home.

While high radon levels can result in denial of a mortgage loan–and can sometimes give you the right to cancel a purchase agreement without penalty unless the seller agrees to pay for radon mitigation–borderline levels may be enough to pass your lender’s standards, even though this data could indicate a radon problem that needs attention.

Read on to learn more about this tasteless, odorless, colorless gas and how radon mitigation services can keep you and your family safe after you’ve purchased a new home.

Why Size Matters When Choosing Your Next Air Conditioner

Written by Rick Lucazak on . Posted in Blog

Have you ever bought a brand-new pair of shoes only to discover that it was the wrong size for your feet? You wouldn’t put up with a pair of shoes one size too large in hopes that your feet would grow, nor would you suffer with a pair a size too small. Yet, many homeowners buy new air conditioning systems that are either too large or too small for their homes and then cope with the consequences.

Buying an oversized or undersized air conditioner can have a wide variety of consequences, including compromised cooling comfort, higher energy consumption, or even a shortened lifespan for your A/C equipment. The following explains why you need to choose the right size when you purchase a new air conditioning system for your home.

When an older air conditioning (AC) unit fails to deliver on its cooling and drying promises, the unit may not need complete replacement.

Many times, all your AC unit needs is a bit of maintenance, a small repair or two, or an equipment adjustment. If it’s been a while since an HVAC professional inspected your air conditioning system, schedule a service call before you give up on your air conditioning unit. Below are some tips about repairing and replacing your air conditioner.

There Are Times to Give Up

Ten years go by fast when you own a home. And ten years are about as long as you can expect some AC units to last. This fact is especially true if you’re not fastidious about maintenance.

However, putting your A/C system back to work isn’t as simple as turning it on and hoping for the best.

Uncover and Clean the Outdoor Condenser Unit
