June 18th, 2018

AC-tools-on-topAll of us want to live comfortably in our homes throughout the year. Doing so efficiently, however, can prove to be a little tricky. If you have an air conditioning contractor telling you that you need to buy a brand new, high-efficiency air conditioning system if you hope to boost energy efficiency, however, do not schedule your HVAC services in Canton with that individual. Yes, a high-efficiency system will obviously yield results. It’s not the only way, though.

Don’t Let Your System Short Cycle

June 4th, 2018

relaxing-on-couchConsidering just how hot it can get around here during the summer season, we probably don’t need to tell you that you are going to want to have any problems with your air conditioning resolved in a prompt manner when they arise. What you may need reminding of, however, is that not all problems are going to result in an immediate breakdown. The fact that your air conditioner is starting up, and even the fact that it is pumping out some cooled air, does not mean that the system is functioning properly.

Short cycling is a common air conditioning problem that many homeowners encounter. Because the system is technically functional, even if it is running erratically, many homeowners fail to address the issue in a prompt manner. This is a huge disservice to the system, as well as to those homeowners’ comfort. Today, we’re going to discuss why you’ll want to get in touch with our Kennesaw AC repair pros as soon as you notice that your system is short cycling.

Refrigerant Leaks Are a Big Issue

May 21st, 2018

working-on-ACAir conditioners require the right amount of refrigerant in order to function properly. It is just that simple. A low refrigerant charge is a relatively common problem with air conditioners. It is also one of the most serious problems that homeowners may encounter with their home cooling systems. Why?

Today we are talking all about the role refrigerant plays in your air conditioning system, why that role is so important, and how it is that you may notice a potential refrigerant leak with your system. Once you do notice any of the discussed symptoms, you absolutely must schedule professional air conditioning repair in Canton, GA as soon as possible.

Why Your AC Installation Calls for Triple Evacuation

May 7th, 2018

working-on-ACCentral air conditioning systems, heat pumps, and ductless mini splits share a few key attributes in common. Chief among these similarities is the fact that all of these systems us refrigerant in order to facilitate the cooling process. Refrigerant is a heat transfer fluid that changes its physical state from liquid to gas and back again relatively easily. It evaporates in the indoor evaporator coil, removing heat from the air in the home, and is condensed outdoors to release that heat.

Now, low refrigerant levels due to an improper initial charge (a mistake that we simply do not make) or a leak is the first issue that most people would associate with refrigerant. It is not the only one, though. Quite often during new system installations, underqualified technicians will fail to properly clean out the AC line sets. This can leave behind a number of contaminants that can cause problems for your AC in Rome, GA. That is why triple evacuation cleaning is the way to go.
