Bi-County Inc Increase AC Efficiency

Outside Temperatures Affect How Well Your HVAC Works

We all know that the hotter it is outside, the harder the AC works to cool our homes. As a result, you might find it struggling to bring down temperatures in extreme summer heat. One reason is that the air conditioning cycle requires the temperature outside to be cooler than the hot air it is releasing from the unit. That is why your air conditioner works more efficiently in cooler fall and spring temperatures. One of the simplest ways to increase the efficiency of your HVAC is regular maintenance services. Dirt and debris, or faulty parts can add to the strain on the compressor.

Imagine waking up on a chilly winter morning or a hot summer day, only to find something is not right with your heating or air conditioning!

Air Quality Action Day

What is an Air Quality Action Day?

Recently, here in Bucks County PA, we experienced several days of a level orange Air Quality Index (AQI) Alert.  AQI is used by government agencies to communicate to the public how polluted the air currently is or how polluted it is forecast to become over a specified period of time.  As the AQI rises, an increasingly large percentage of the population is likely to experience increased adverse health effects. Whole home air purifier systems can remove particulate matter and other hard-to-remove impurities such as dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mites and spores.
