Air Conditioning

Athletic trainers tell us interval training is one of the best exercises. It gets your heart rate up, burns fat, and motivates you to give it your all in the next set. In the same way, your air conditioning system isn’t always running in the summertime. And that’s a good thing. Temporary breaks increase the longevity of your cooling system and decrease the dollars you spend on cooling in your month to month utility bills. Your air conditioning unit runs until it achieves your thermostat set point at any given time. A deviation from the actual versus set point temperature sparks your cooling system to turn ON until the ambient temperature meets the programmed temperature. The reason the actual temperature continues to increase, and your air conditioning unit continues to turn ON to cool it down, is cool air escaping and warm air entering through the cracks, walls, and windows of...
Even if you don’t have children enrolled at the popular St. Louis school district, you’re probably familiar with Charles Lindbergh. He gained fame for the first solo nonstop flight across the Atlantic in 1927. Remarkably, Lindbergh completed the journey in a single-engine plane. Lindbergh Schools serve the Crestwood, Sunset Hills and South County areas. In these areas there are many two-story homes with a single air conditioning unit. In fact, a variety of factors determine whether one or two units are best. Consider these important variables in the air conditioning equation for your two-story home. The Existing Cooling System in Your Two-Story Home Your existing cooling system relates to the age of your home. Many older two-story Sunset Hill homes contain a non-zoned system. Therefore, two smaller sized units service each floor. Homeowners adjust the upstairs and downstairs temperature independently, without tweaking the thermostat constantly and wasting energy on an unoccupied...
Band-Aids have a place in your home’s first aid box just like HVAC repair has a place in restoring the cool temperature of your home. But adhesive bandages are not always the best option in medicine. And repair is not always the best long-term solution for your energy bills. Let’s walk through the good, the bad, and the ugly of simple versus comprehensive solutions for your cooling system, and how Hoffmann Brothers can help you choose. The Good A Band-Aid can control the bleeding and protect a cut. It’s a simple and inexpensive item available at your local drugstore. In the same way, an air conditioning repair is immediately less expensive than a replacement. It turns your unit back on and pumps out cool air to your home.   The Bad Sometimes a Band-Aid is used to cover a wound that needs stitches. You keep opening the wound, loosing blood, and...
Awnings, ivy walls, window drafting, attic fans, porches, and basements are somewhat nostalgic ways to get through the heat this summer. Swimming, shade trees, and cool drinks work too. But life as we know it in the modern world requires air conditioning. Air Conditioning in BusinessConsider business hours of operation independent of the season. A vast number of Americans work 8 – 5 jobs in business formal attire. Meetings are rarely cancelled for snow much less record heat. The key to surviving the fourth floor office conference room, wearing a wool suit in the month of July, is air conditioning. In fact, our business laptops and Internet servers depend on cool ambient temperatures year round. Air Conditioning in City LifeModern architecture including high rises and skyscrapers does a great job of sustaining city life. A high population density can be packed into a relatively small square footage for work, home, and...
Anyone faced with a medical need for a hip or knee replacement knows the value of the right surgeon. The patient doesn’t start on Google, looking for the best kind of implant. Metal versus ceramic? Polyethylene insert versus metal-on-metal? Instead, the patient looks for a trustworthy and skillful surgeon with years of experience and plenty of patient testimonials. Now, shift to a homeowner who needs a new air conditioning unit. Homeowners who follow the model of the patient get the best outcome in overall price, efficiency, comfort, and long-term durability. You get what you pay for in surgery and air conditioning installation. Instead of comparing the pros and cons of Trane versus Carrier or heat pumps versus air handlers, it pays for a homeowner in the market for a new AC unit to call an expert. A qualified contractor understands the latest technologies, the right fit for the application, and the...
