The size of the whole home generator  you need for your home in Durham really depends on which appliances you want to operate during a power outage. You can usually run the most crucial appliances just fine on a generator with a 5,000 – 7,500 watt capability. However, to make sure that the generator will be powerful enough for the needs of your home, before purchasing you should check the wattage of the appliances you want to run. The wattage of individual appliances is usually listed on their label. When you have determined which appliances you wish to run and their wattages, add them together to see if the generator can handle the amount of power your home needs.
To learn more Comfort First is standing by. Contact us today  for a home generator consultation!

If your AC is not blowing cold air in your home near Durham, it could be for a number of reasons:

  • Your thermostat could be malfunctioning and not sending the right signals to your unit.
  • There is ice buildup in the unit, due to either dirty evaporator coils or clogged air filters that prevent proper airflow.
  • The condensate pipe is clogged.
  • The refrigerant levels are low and could mean there is a leak.

If you are having trouble with your air conditioner, call Comfort First today! We provide expert AC repair services at competitive rates.

How much a repair for an air conditioner will cost depends mainly on what is wrong with the unit. Most repairs tend to be minor ones and average $350 in price. Larger repairs can cost upwards of $2,000 and could include replacing a compressor or repairing a complicated refrigerant leak.

For a more accurate estimate contact Comfort First today! We offer free quotes on professional AC repair services, guaranteed to keep your home cool all summer long.

  • The size of the home you are cooling.
  • The quality and energy efficiency of the AC unit.
