Family owned Boston heating and cooling company sees spike in AC repair calls.
Boston Standard Plumbing, voted Best of Boston 2010 for heating and cooling services by Boston Magazine, has been featured in an article that appears in the July 8, 2010 issue of the Boston Globe. The article follows Joe Wood, owner of Boston Standard Plumbing & Heating as he made air conditioning service calls to homes in the Boston area. Wood said that the intense heat that has gripped the Boston area has prompted many Boston residents to seek help with malfunctioning air conditioner units.
"Our service calls have been up substantially in the past week," says Wood. "The outside air is dangerously hot and the humidity is high, meaning that air conditioning units have to work exceptionally hard to dry the air and cool it down. Wood says that air conditioner breakdowns aren't uncommon at this time of year, but people often wait until they need air conditioning to have a broken unit repaired.
"Regular maintenance on air conditioners can prevent breakdowns when the heat reaches the 90's and beyond," says Wood. "It can also help prevent a small problem from turning into a big one." Boston Standard Plumbing & Heating provides heating, air conditioning and residential plumbing services. "We work on all kinds of heating and cooling systems, including heat pumps, central air conditioning units and even ductless air conditioners," says Wood.
Wood advises Boston-area residents to seek help as soon as they notice a problem with an air conditioning unit. "Sometimes, maintenance and repair can help homeowners avoid replacing a cooling unit, and allow them to maintain safe, comfortable temperatures inside their homes during the height of the summer." Wood also notes that a properly maintained air conditioner or heat pump is more efficient, and therefore uses less electricity.
