Heed These Common End-of-Season AC Needs

Monday, September 9th, 2019

outdoor-ac-unitsThe official end of summer is near, and while you may be ready to welcome cooler temperatures outside soon as well as the chance to stop using your air conditioner as often, this is no time to forget about your air conditioner, or its repair needs.

Hopefully, you had maintenance done at the beginning of the season and didn’t experience any major cooling system catastrophes over the summer. If you didn’t schedule maintenance this year, not to worry, it’s not too late! It’s only too late if you have an aging system that’s completely broken down and has no hope for repairs.

That said, whether you had professional maintenance done or not, there are some needs that can crop up at the end of the season that require your attention. They include the following:

Poor Installation Can Lead to These Ductless Problems

Monday, July 1st, 2019

ductless-unit-with-remote-controlDuctless systems have been increasingly growing in popularity, and for good reason. Rather than operating through a network of ducts connected to an indoor air handler and evaporator unit, ductless units break up the indoor unit and blower fans to distribute air through handlers that operate independently of each other—meaning the temperature settings can be different for each air handler.

This makes ductless systems operate much more efficiently than a standard central air conditioner, which is forced to cool your entire home, even if you don’t need conditioned air in your entire home at the time. There are a number of benefits to the installation of these systems—but there can also be drawbacks if you don’t have yours professionally installed.

We’ve covered some unique ductless repair needs below. These can happen even with proper installation, but they’re a lot more likely if the install is done by an inexperienced amateur.

What to Know About Damaged Ducts

Monday, April 8th, 2019

ductwork-being-repairedWhen you live somewhere like Lawrenceville, there’s a good chance that you already think about your air conditioner quite a bit. You’d understandably like to expect that it works efficiently and effectively throughout its lifespan. But what many homeowners don’t think about when it comes to their HVAC system is the “V” part of the equation—the ventilation that connects your cooling system to the outside, making the distribution of cooled air possible.

This ventilation system, known as your ductwork, is usually out of sight—hidden behind walls, beneath floors, or in your attic or crawlspace. Unfortunately, if your ductwork was installed by an inexperienced ‘professional,’ then there is a good chance that it has accumulated damage over the years. And if your air ducts are negatively impacted by anything like air leaks or poor connections, you could be experiencing problems that lead to poor HVAC efficiency and possible even AC repair needs.

An air conditioning technician welds a connection prior to installing AC unit.Wouldn’t it be nice if you could find an air conditioner that performs at 100% efficiency and effectiveness throughout its entire lifespan?
