What's Causing My A/C to Trip the Circuit Breaker?Your central air conditioner shouldn't be tripping the circuit breaker in your home. If it does this just one time, it's not necessarily a sign of problems. It's when the A/C is tripping the circuit breaker a second and third time that you need to address the issue. It probably reflects an underlying problem with your cooling system. First try some do-it-yourself troubleshooting, then if that doesn't work, call in an HVAC professional.

Duct Sealing Can Increase Your Home’s Energy EfficiencyThe benefit of a central air system is that it allows your entire home's temperature to be controlled from a single thermostat, with a single HVAC installation. But it also comes with a serious drawback: the ducts that deliver air to your living areas can develop leaks or tears that bleed off conditioned air before you can make use of it. When your ducts pass through crawl spaces and other passages outside of your living areas, this can lead to wasted energy and money. That's why duct sealing is so important.

"Brian showed me what was wrong with my air conditioning unit and explained everything so I could understand. He spoke to Vicki at the office regarding a needed part that would have to be ordered. They could have slapped a generic part on, but it would have only been a short-term fix. Instead of taking the easy way out, they are getting the part made for my unit so it will stay fixed, and they are coming back to finish the job as soon as they have the part. Hartman Brothers is ethical, knowledgeable, friendly, and they do the job right! I highly recommend them!"

"Always a tremendous experience with Hartman Brothers. I have used them for more than 25 years and gotten to know their people more like friends/family than vendors... because that's exactly how they treat their customers! Always a pleasure to deal with and their work is exceptional as a bonus. Would give them 6 Stars if it was an option."

"They worked me in early. Inspected and found the problem quickly. Explain the issues thoroughly and did not attempt to see me parts and services I did not need. They got the heat going temporarily and hope to have needed parts in a couple days."
