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.

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.
