It doesn’t matter if it’s the peak of the cooling season, or the very last hot day on the calendar.

We are not just trying to make money off repairs that you don’t really need here, either.

What Are Capacitors?

Monday, July 30th, 2018

blown-awayWe do not expect homeowners to be air conditioning experts. If you all were, after all, our business would be in serious trouble! That being said, we do think that it is in your best interest to have some idea of how your air conditioning system works. You may not be able to accurately diagnose problems that develop with your system, and you definitely should not try to resolve them on your own. You can,  however, recognize that there are a lot of vital components in your system, and any issues should raise red flags.

Today we’ll be talking about just such vital components—the capacitors in your AC! Now, different systems may not have the same capacitors, some may serve double functions, etc. etc. For simplicity’s sake, we’ll focus on two specific types of capacitors today.  These are the run capacitor and the start capacitor. If you should encounter any problems with your air conditioning capacitors, then you’ll definitely need to schedule prompt HVAC services in Calhoun.

Don’t Let Your System Short Cycle

Monday, 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.
