At some point we’ve all sarcastically said or heard the phrase, “the joys of home ownership.” When you’re in need of an air conditioner replacement is certainly one of those times, but replacing your air conditioner isn’t all bad news. Air conditioners are being made more efficient than ever. This mean lowering your energy usage, which can save you money. Another way to save money with a new system is by utilizing rebates and tax credits.

You could qualify for utility rebates and other local incentive programs when you purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner from Lennox®. You’ll improve the comfort of your home, while also saving money.

The team at Andrew DiPietro’s Climate Zone has been approved by Mass Save as an AC Check Trained Contractor. Mass Save ensures that the contractors they work with have been trained in proper airflow and charge protocols through their heating and cooling program and that your newly installed equipment operates according to manufacturer’s specifications. We will work with you to ensure you’re getting all the rebates and incentives available as they tend to change quickly so it’s best to take advantage of them as soon as they become available.

If you’ve decided to take your efficiency to the next level and go the solar air conditioner route, such as the SunSource® Home Energy System, you’ll be eligible for a federal renewable-energy tax credit through 2016. If you were thinking of solar, now is definitely the time.

Allergy season is ramping up in the Merrimack Valley and Southern New Hampshire area. Last year at this time ragweed was at a record high in our area. You shouldn’t have to suffer, especially in the comfort of your own home. Taking a look at your indoor air quality could ease a lot of your seasonal suffering and let you fully enjoy an otherwise beautiful time of year. The home comfort professionals at Climate Zone are ready to help you keep those itchy eyes and sneezes at bay with an air filtration system.

When homeowners think of air filtration they’re usually thinking about the filter they are changing in their HVAC system. Of course, traditional air filters are an important piece of the healthy air puzzle. It’s smart to get into the habit of checking your filter every month, typically changing it out every two months. There are quite a few different filters available. We recommend high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters because they utilize hospital-grade technology to clean your air to the highest levels possible.

Giving your home the best indoor air quality starts with traditional filters, but it doesn’t end there. Lennox® has the industry’s most effective air purifiers and their PureAirTM air purification system is the only system to combat all three classes of contaminants. These contaminants are: particles (dust, pet dander), biological (mold, pollen, dust mites) and gas phase (cleaning supplies, air fresheners and pesticides).

Your forced air heating and cooling system moves air throughout your entire house, this is the ideal place to combat air containments and that’s exactly how our air purification systems work. Our air filtration systems can be incorporated into almost any HVAC system. Along with helping your allergies and keeping you healthier, it will also keep your home smelling fresh. So that fish you fried last night isn’t lingering around the next day. Our systems purify your air without producing ozone, which is a lung irritant.

We offer many air purification and filtration systems to ensure you’re breathing only the best air. Your health and comfort is our main focus at Climate Zone. We want to work along with you to not only help you battle those seasonal allergies, but any other of your home comfort needs. Our professionals are available 24/7 and you can reach us by phone at (978) 872-1190 or use our handy online scheduler.

With spring officially here, even if the temperature doesn’t reflect it yet, it will only be a matter of time until we start feeling the effects of another warm Haverhill summer. It’s no secret that as temperatures begin to climb we start depending more and more on our air conditioners so that we can escape the heat and stay comfortable.

As it is with most everything, the more you use it, the greater the chance that parts can begin to wear out or will require service. Air conditioners are no exception to this rule. So if it’s been a while since you’ve had your air conditioner serviced, the chance for an air conditioner repair is likely increasing too.

Now is the perfect time to flip on your air conditioner to see if there is anything out of the ordinary going on with your system so you can get it checked out. A few of the most common things we suggest looking for are:

  • Air That Doesn’t Get Cold – It seems like something you’d notice pretty quickly, but you’d be surprised how many people flip on their air conditioner and don’t realize it isn’t providing cold air until it really heats up outside. If you’ve already noticed this and tried to adjust your thermostat, but still aren’t noticing any change in the air temperature, it may be time to give us a call.
  • Decreased Airflow – If you put your hand over a vent in your home and it feels like the air coming out of it doesn’t seem to be coming out as strong as it usually does, there is a chance you have a problem. One of the first things to do is to replace your air filter. Dirty air filters can cause a lot of issues with air conditioners and is a relatively easy fix that you can likely do on your own.
  • Strange Noises – We wouldn’t say that it’s normal to hear clanking or banging sounds coming from your air conditioner, so if you hear these, you may need the help of a pro. Air conditioners have a lot of moving parts to them, both inside and out, so it’s not uncommon to have something come loose and get damaged from regular use over time.

Just because you haven’t had your system serviced doesn’t mean that repair is inevitable though. Even if Haverhill experiences record temps this summer, your system could work just fine. However, why risk it going out on the hottest day in July? The team at Andrew DiPietro’s Climate Zone is available 24/7 to help take care of anything that’s going on with your air conditioner. Give us a call at (978) 872-1190 to get something set up today.
