Heating and air conditioning systems have undergone many changes and improvements since the concept of using a centralized unit to heat and cool family homes became popular back in the 1970s. Today's heating and air conditioning systems (HVACs) offer families more comfort, efficiency and affordability than ever before. However, even these may not be able to provide comfort to homes where certain problems or conditions exist. If your home's HVAC system is in good condition and fully operational, yet your home does not feel as comfortable as it should, the problem may be caused by something other than your central heating and cooling appliances.
It doesn't take long for the average air conditioner to bring your home's indoor temperatures down to your desired levels. In most cases, an A/C system that's in good shape can cool off a home within 10 to 15 minutes before turning off. However, there are several issues that could make an A/C system run constantly without shutting off.
#1: Clogged Air Filter
A clogged air filter can block air from entering the A/C unit.

This style of water heater warms water on demand as it flows through your pipes, rather than heating the water and storing it until it is used. Tankless hot water heaters offer many advantages for cabin owners, but there are a few drawbacks to keep in mind as you consider this option, too.
