When it comes to both protecting your household and keeping your family comfortable, one of the most important aspects of your home is its electrical system. Properly caring for this system and knowing when to call for repairs or an electrical panel upgrade (which we’ll talk about below) are essential to a hazard-free home. The good news is, there are some electrical upgrades you can make that are not only quite useful, but can be fun too!
Don’t forget, however, you always need a professional electrician for any work involving your home’s wiring. This is the law, first off—there are certain municipal building codes we have to abide by. Then there is your safety to consider, and the integrity of your property.
With that said and without further ado, here are some upgrades you might want to consider this summer. We’ll start with the fun ones!

Imagine this scene playing out in your home: You’re in your living room, sitting on the couch relaxing. It’s an 85°F day, but that’s alright! After all, your air conditioner is blasting away, providing you with cool air that makes you feel perfectly comfortable. Until suddenly, it stops working.
What do you do next? If you’re like most folks, you probably head over to your thermostat. Maybe you see that the settings are correct and the device seems to be working okay. So next is the circuit breaker panel—did the breaker for the AC trip? Nope, that’s fine too. So what’s happening?
You go ahead and call for emergency repairs, but you have to wait because everyone’s doing the same thing on this hot day. Now you’re stuck not only feeling frustrated, but uncomfortable too.
Well, hopefully, you’ll never have this scenario play out. Read on as we uncover some major clues that it’s time to call an HVAC pro for a small repair need before it grows into a much bigger problem, like the one we just outlined.

The electrical panel of your home, also referred to as the circuit breaker panel, is tasked with keeping your household’s entire electrical system running smoothly and safely throughout the years. You probably don’t think about this home component very much—unless you have to constantly reset breakers. But because of this, problems can crop up without you knowing about it until it results in an outage or some other more serious problem.
If you’ve lived in your home for 25+ years and have never had an electrical inspection done, now is the time. Older electrical panels require professional care and attention to make sure that they are not operating in a way that could threaten your home or your family’s safety. If you do find that you have an urgent electrical problem, we’re the team to call. However, we’d like to help you avoid electrical problems altogether, and for that reason, we’ve put together these signs for you:

When most people think about “air quality,” they’re focused on what’s in the air outside, such as pollen or mold levels. But actually, your indoor air quality can be worse than that of outdoors, especially without the right products and services in place. With Americans spending more time indoors than ever before, it makes sense that you’d want to find the best way to make the air you breathe as healthy as possible. This is especially true if you have household members who suffer from allergies or asthma.
So, perhaps an air purifier is the answer? While it would be easy, and certainly cheaper, to go with a portable system, a whole-house system is really what’s going to do the trick. Read on to learn why.

When something goes wrong with your air conditioning system, it can be a big problem. There is the obvious immediate issue of poor cooling for your home along with the additional troubles of higher energy bills and potential added strain on the system. An AC in need of repairs isn’t something to ignore.
But a malfunctioning AC isn’t something you should try to fix on your own. We know that the internet is rife with DIY solutions for a faulty air conditioner, but opening up this system and trying to fix it yourself is not going to end up the way you want it to. In a majority of cases, DIY repair attempts often end up damaging an air conditioner more than anything else. Your best option if something goes wrong with your AC is to contact a professional for air conditioning repair in Eugene, OR.

While it may take a little bit longer for temperatures to warm up around here than it does in other parts of the country, it’s no secret that relatively speaking, our summers are hot. Therefore, you need a highly efficient and effective air conditioner to keep you cool throughout the season. True, if something goes wrong with your air conditioner, our team is here to help you with prompt and reliable repairs. But wouldn’t you like to avoid air conditioner repairs if you could?
Well, you can! With proper care, your air conditioner can work reliably and efficiently as possible throughout its entire lifespan. The average air conditioner can last 10–15 years when properly cared for. But without proper care, you can expect that lifespan to be cut in half.
Read on as we provide a few tips on how to best prepare your air conditioner for summer.

Electrical problems can be among the most dangerous of household issues you can have, depending on their severity. We say this because not all electrical problems lead to just blackouts—they can lead to electrocution or even house fires. Hopefully, you invest in professional electrical maintenance once a year to avoid this problem.
Even with maintenance, however, it’s also a good idea for you to make sure that you keep an eye out for indicators that your system is struggling. The faster you can identify potential electrical issues, the less likely they’ll progress far enough to pose a threat. Take a look at some of the signs that your home’s electrical system is suffering.

What if we told you that when you’re looking to heat or cool your home, there’s an effective and efficient way to do both from one system? There is: the ductless HVAC system. Also referred to as a ductless mini-split or ductless heat pump, this type of central heating and cooling is becoming increasingly popular both in our area and throughout the country.
Ductless systems are effective at keeping homes warm in the winter as well as cool in the summer. If you’re looking to replace your air conditioner this spring and have also been considering a heating system replacement, then this may be just what you’re looking for.
