You rely on your home air conditioning system all summer to stay cool — but do you know how it performs its magic act?
Most people think that their air conditioner just delivers cool air into the home, but it actually does double duty. To keep your home comfortable, the system also needs to pull the heat out of a home. Here’s how it all happens.
These are just the basic principles. A professional cooling technician should service your home A/C unit every year to make sure it is working properly.
As the availability of outdated R-22 refrigerant has become more limited, its price has gotten higher. In 2020, R-22 will no longer be manufactured at all!
That’s a big — and costly — problem if your old A/C system leaks R-22 refrigerant and you need to add more.
If you’re not sure what type of refrigerant your air conditioning system has, please contact us. All the A/C systems we install operate on economical and environmentally friendly R-410 refrigerant.
Besides the refrigerant issue, keep in mind that all new air conditioning systems are many times more efficient than models available even a decade ago. Upgrading to a higher-efficiency cooling system can save you a lot of money over the long run — on utility bills and repair costs.
Every time you mow your lawn, there is a chance you could be affecting the operation of your central air conditioning unit. That’s because grass clippings, dust, pollen and dirt are all stirred up during lawn maintenance. This debris then settles either on or inside your outdoor air conditioning unit, and that can compromise its performance.
Take these steps to protect your outdoor A/C unit, which will minimize inefficient operation and help you avoid potential breakdowns:
