Hi there! I’m James and live outside of Seattle with my wife and two daughters. While it’s pretty temperate in Seattle, the summers can get a little muggy and we like to stay cool as much as possible.

I am one of those people who refuse to have someone take care of anything for me if it is possible to handle it on my own. There is something very wrong with my air conditioning system and I want to find a tutorial that will help me figure out how to get it working again. This is something that is much easier said than done, especially since the problem has not been diagnosed yet. I am also wary of people who are trying to make me pay them for directions on caring for my system. I know there has to be a better solution.

The main thing that I am having a problem with is the fact that I am not exactly sure where to look. It seems like most of the places I look are websites filled with haphazard information intended for those who want to end up on the consumer end of a contractor’s deal. While I will head out and find a professional if it turns out I cannot do this on my own, I do not want to do this until I take the time to work on it a little.

Heating And Air Conditioning Repair Tips

We recently moved into a new home that is about 15 years old. The previous owners had a good deal of work done on many features of the house, including the cooling system. However, there are some issues that are coming up with the heating source and I would like to be able to find some of the best tips for heating and air conditioning repairs so that I can take on some of the fixes for myself.

While I do not have any background in HVAC repairs, I would like to learn about some of the different noises that I can listen for and how I can go about cleaning the heating system to keep it in great shape for as long as possible before I work on replacing anything major.

Is there a way to build up a collection of tips that I can always keep handy should any sort of emergency arise? I want to learn about the potential for having to bleed the lines in our oil furnace if necessary and I want to be able to have information on changing out the filter and any other replaceable parts instead of having to call a technician for it.
