Getting the Best Cooling System Installation for Your Home

When spring rolls around, people often start to think about how to keep their home cool once the summer warmth hits. Some people have never had a cooling system, and aren’t sure what to get. Some are homebuyers who may not be happy with the air conditioning that came with their new house. Others know it’s time for an upgrade, but might be confused by all the choices available. How can you know you’re getting the best cooling system installation for your home? We recommend that you first do some research, and then call a qualified professional like GRC Mechanical Services to help.

The type of air conditioning you install in your home is highly dependent upon the type of home you have. For instance, if you already have an existing central air conditioning system, you’ll probably want to consider an upgrade to a higher-efficiency central AC model. Your home is likely equipped with the ductwork you need to move the cooled air throughout your home. It just makes good sense to install a system that works with your existing ductwork. A professional home comfort company like GRC will help ensure that your system is the right size for your home, and provide you with the best model for your needs.
What if I need cooling installation in a home without ductwork?
If you have radiant or baseboard heat in your home, you might not have ductwork. And installing it, while usually not entirely impossible, can be expensive and can cause a lot of construction mess throughout your home. Many people don’t realize that there are some great options available today that are efficient, quiet and provide comfort control throughout your entire home. A ductless mini-split system, […]

Who Should I Call If I Need Cooling Repair Services?

It’s a scorcher outside, and you can’t wait to relax in the cool comfort of your home’s air conditioning system. But when you finally settle in at home, you notice it’s much warmer inside than you’d prefer… much warmer. You check your air conditioning system and realize it isn’t working. You check your filter and your thermostat… but those aren’t the problem. Looks like something’s going on with your cooling system, and you need the help of an air conditioning expert. Who should you call when you need cooling repair services?

The best place to start is with a professional cooling contractor, but as you likely know, there are many to choose from. What should you look for when you need AC repair for your home? For starters, you’ll want to consider how long the company has been in business. Are they well established, with a satisfied customer base?

Air Conditioning Maintenance: 4 Reasons to Call A Pro

GRC Mechanical Services offers Qualified, Award-Winning HVAC Services to all of Bergen County, NJ and surrounding areas.

Spring is here in New Jersey, and that means it’s time to start thinking about your home’s cooling system. Even though it might be a little early to run your air conditioner, there’s actually no better time than the present to make sure it’s operating properly. The best way to do that is by calling a qualified local HVAC contractor, like GRC Mechanical Services to give your system an inspection and tune-up.
GRC Mechanical Services offers cost-effective Preventive AC Maintenance.
Annual air conditioner maintenance is critical to keeping your home cooling system running in top shape. Here are 4 main benefits you can look forward to when you schedule air conditioning maintenance with a top-rated GRC HVAC technician:

Longer HVAC Equipment Life Expectancy
By choosing preventive maintenance for your AC system, you could actually be helping it last longer. That’s because your annual maintenance call will include a thorough cleaning and check-up of your system. Any small issues will be found and can subsequently be addressed. Plus, a clean system doesn’t have to work as hard as one clogged with dirt, debris and build-up.

Better Air Conditioner Efficiency
One of the biggest culprits when it comes to reduced equipment efficiency is also one of the simplest to remedy – a dirty filter. Annual maintenance ensures your filter will be cleaned or replaced at the beginning of cooling system. And, it’s easy to replace your filter yourself (some experts recommend you change your equipment filter once a month during periods of heavy use.) Our friendly technicians will show you how!

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Energy Savings Could Be Yours – Right Now, the Price is Right with Carrier® Cool Cash!

As our home comfort systems age, they naturally become less efficient. Couple that with the fact that every year, manufacturers are developing technologies that make furnaces and air conditioners operate better. As a result, you can imagine that a 10-year old HVAC system is probably costing you more in energy than need be. But, getting new home comfort equipment is an expensive proposition. Many people don’t really plan for the day that they’ll need a new furnace or air conditioner, and unfortunately many have to replace theirs because of a breakdown.

Therefore, it’s important to think of your home’s HVAC system like you would your automobile – get it the maintenance it needs, and plan to replace before it breaks down. The Department of Energy suggests that upgrading to a high efficiency system is an effective way to cut down on home comfort costs. They also explain that many of today’s heating systems offer between 90-98.5 percent energy efficiency – that means that only a very small fraction of heat is lost, and most is used to keep your home cozy and warm. And, that translates to lower utility bills. So, if you have an older system that’s been needing repairs and jacking up your energy use, it probably is time to replace.
Right now, you’ll save with Carrier Cool Cash and GRC Mechanical.
GRC Mechanical is offering our huge Carrier® Cool Cash incentive. Now through the end of November, you’ll get substantial financing options on new, efficient Carrier heating or air conditioning systems. We’re offering several payment options for your new system, as well as financing plans to qualified customers. This offer provides monthly payment options and our 5-year labor/10-year parts warranty. Not to mention, you will […]

How Much is Too Much AC Repair for Your Paramus, NJ System?

When summer reaches its peak heat, it’s important to have an air conditioning system that works well. You want your home to stay nice and cool, and your energy usage to be at a minimum. Of course, like any other mechanical equipment, you can expect that your system need some minor fixes on occasion. But, if the AC repairs for your Paramus, NJ home have gotten out of hand, it might be time to think about a new system. An article on the Angie’s List website provides some insights into whether you should repair or replace.

The article points out how to know if AC repair is the way to go for your Paramus, NJ home. First and foremost, you should consider the age of your system. If your system is older (more than 10 years old) it could be time. If you have an older system and you’ve noticed a hike in your utility bills, it’s just not working as efficiently as it should. Couple that with expensive air conditioning repair costs, and a new system may actually end up saving you money.
Here are a few more things to think about when it comes to AC repair for your Paramus, NJ home.
Consider the 5000 rule.
To do this, simply multiply the age of your system times the cost of the repair. For instance, if the repair is $200, and your system is 10 years old, that equals 2000. Since it’s less than 5000, you should go for the AC repair. If, however the repair would cost $650, that would equal 6000 – meaning you should consider installing a new system.
Evaluate your system’s energy efficiency.
Air conditioning systems, especially ones that haven’t been properly maintained, decrease in efficiency as the […]

Frequent Air Conditioning Repair in Your Bergen County, NJ Home Could Mean It’s Time for Replacement

When the summer heat strikes in Bergen County, NJ, having an air conditioning system in good working order is vital. If your AC system is in frequent need of repairs, keeping your system running is a costly venture. Many times, homeowners aren’t sure if they need to repair or replace. ENERGY STAR offers some guidance on how to know if an air conditioning repair is in order, or if you need to consider a new system.
If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it might be time for replacement. The older a system gets, the more inefficient it becomes. And that can cost you more in utilities. ENERGY STAR also cites the frequency in which you need air conditioning repair in your Bergen County, NJ home. If you need extensive repairs often, it is probably costing you more in the long run than a replacement may cost.

Also, are some of the rooms in your home hot, while others are cold? While this could be a problem with your ductwork, it could also lead back to your AC system. An air conditioner that isn’t operating properly, or is poorly sized, can result in uneven cooling of your home. By nature, an air conditioning system should also help dehumidify your home. If that’s not happening, ENERGY STAR says it could be due to poorly operating equipment. Finally, noisy systems are pretty good indicators that something is up. Sometimes the noise can be remedied by a simple AC repair in your Bergen County, NJ home. But, it can also mean there are problems with your indoor coil – and that can be costly to fix.
GRC Mechanical can help you get AC replacement or air conditioning repair for your […]
