I constantly get this question from homeowners in the greater Lexington, KY, area, and the answer is almost always, “Yes!” Almost — but more about that later.
It’s normal for your air conditioner to create some noise when running—that simply means it’s working. Although older units are typically louder than newer ones, all air conditioning noises are not the same. Despite your air conditioner’s age, any sound coming from the unit can still be bothersome. If your air conditioner is producing an unusual sound, that could mean trouble. So instead of risking injury to you or your system by poking around the unit yourself, play it safe and call a professional to come inspect it for you.
Air conditioning isn’t exactly a stimulating topic to bring up at parties. It’s not something most people think about too excessively. But at Synergy Home, we’re obsessed with it! We want to share with you some things that you may not have known about your air conditioner (AC). We’ve made this list to help you become an informed consumer and get the best out of your purchase.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from uranium in the soil. Although it exists in trace amounts all over the world, it can cause significant health problems if you happen to have a high concentration of it in your home. It’s dangerous because you can’t smell, see, or taste radon.
Unfortunately, the short answer is yes. In fact, it’s the leading cause of cancer for nonsmokers in the United States. For smokers, radon comes in second and contributes to an already-dangerous health situation. Radon comes from the soil as uranium breaks down in nature. Found everywhere in the world, radon levels can vary depending on the geographical location in which you live. You can’t see, smell, or taste radon, which makes it impossible to detect without a radon test.
