“Hey, I’ll bet I can fix this myself.”
“My friend knows a guy who can repair that for you real cheap.”
These two phrases (or similar ones) have led the way to many DIY home projects. Sometimes they work out and cost far less than hiring a professional. Other times, they just don’t work out. There are some types of projects and jobs better suited to the professionals.
HVAC isn’t just better suited to the professionals. Only professionals should ever handle actual HVAC repair work. No matter how handy you think you are, no matter how many friends recommend their cousins or “some guy they know,” this should be left to experienced and licensed professionals only. Let’s go over the most important reasons why you should go with professionals for HVAC repair in Summerville, SC.

All of us would love to be proactive at everything in our lives. Unfortunately, life is not always that simple. Most homeowners don’t understand the inner workings of every moving part in their home, such as the dishwasher, the garage door motor, and the plumbing/heating and air conditioning system. If we as homeowners understood every single aspect of mechanical equipment in our homes, then what a world we would be living in! And it would be great if pigs could fly.
In the world that we actually live in, there are parts of our homes that we as homeowners are not supposed to understand and which we have to trust someone else to handle, honestly and competently. We at Carolina Climate Control are your trusted plumbing, heating, and cooling service advisors. We have an approach to educating our clients so they can make informed purchasing decisions. We eat, breathe, and sleep home comfort, and we’re here for you and your family.

The best way to have your furnace repaired is to catch any problem as soon as possible, before it starts to hurt your family’s comfort or leads to additional problems. A complex and powerful piece of equipment like a gas furnace will suffer from a chain of malfunctions if a single malfunction, even a small one, goes unrepaired.
How can you early detect problems with your gas furnace? There are several signs you can watch for, but let’s focus on signs you can listen for. Odd sounds from a furnace are among the most common indications that it needs professional repairs.

This is the #1 question HVAC folks like us get when discussing the benefits of using heat pumps for year-round comfort. We fully understand why people are a bit confused when they hear that there’s a type of comfort system that uses refrigeration technology to provide heat. When they hear more details about how a heat pump delivers heat, they may feel more confused.
We’re going to walk you through this with a hypothetical dialogue between a potential customer and a technician. We’ll pinpoint the confusion and show you why we think heat pumps in Charleston, SC are often the best choice for home comfort.

You have a central heating system in your house for a reason: to provide heat to all of the living space so your whole family stays warm. It’s much better than using a half dozen space heaters, right? Not to mention it’s much safer and energy efficient.
But you may run into a problem where your heater, which was once doing fine at its job, isn’t performing as well when it comes to heating the whole house. Some members of your family are complaining about their rooms getting too cold, and you’ve started to notice cool spots while the heater is running, even though other places in the house are plenty warm. For some reason, your heating system isn’t providing an even spread of heat.
So what’s the reason? Let’s look at several possibilities.

Starting on January 1, 2023, major changes will go into effect regarding the energy efficiency and manufacturing requirements for residential HVAC equipment. We want to keep all our customers informed about this change, which is called SEER2, and how it will affect equipment prices and availability.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) is implementing Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating 2 (SEER2) in 2023 to improve testing and overall energy efficiency performance of air conditioning and heating systems. Manufacturers must meet the new testing requirements with a redesign of equipment, mandating higher minimum efficiency levels. In the Southeast region of the United States, which includes South Carolina, the minimum SEER requirement for air conditioning systems will rise from 14.0 SEER to 15 SEER (which will be designated as 14.3 SEER2), and heat pumps must meet 14.3 SEER2 (15.0 SEER) and 7.5 HSPF2 (8.8 HSPF).
What does this mean for you as a customer? We won’t be legally allowed to sell existing SEER equipment after January 1, 2023. There will also be a 20%–30% increase in equipment costs rather than a standard 8%–10% increase that would come from simply raising SEER requirements. If you are not currently looking to replace your existing HVAC system, SEER2 may have no immediate effect on you. If you think you may need to install a new AC or heat pump, we recommend that you call us today for more details and arrange for an upgrade before price increases affect your home’s heating and cooling costs.

When you turn on your furnace for the winter, you want it to heat your home so everyone is comfortable. In order for a furnace to do that, it has to run long enough to distribute heated air through the ventilation system to all the rooms.

You’ve come to the right place for answers!
