Our experienced professionals know how to replace, fix, and clean AC units, so they run at peak performance. Some common reasons why an air conditioner needs regular cleaning are:

  • The air filter can become clogged with dirt
  • Cooling coils or the air compressor can get dusty
  • Ductwork can become disconnected
  • Register dampers on vents in each room can be accidentally set to the closed position, blocking airflow

Here’s a tip to keep your AC unit in good condition: clean or change your air filter every month. In addition, you can work on keeping your home cool by dusting parts of your air conditioner regularly. This includes your air condenser, air filter, ensuring that the fin isn’t bent, and other basic maintenance.

While you’re looking for a new air conditioning system, be sure to choose an AC unit with an Energy Star certification. Energy Star-certified AC units use up to 10 percent less energy than other types of air conditioners. You can also look at the Energy Efficiency Ratio measurement (EER) to see how many BTUs are used per watt. The higher the EER rating, the better and more energy-efficient the AC unit will be in your home.

 

 

An overlooked aspect of new air conditioning systems for many is the electrical requirements of the new system. Check the electrical requirements listed in the AC unit’s technical specifications. As you’d expect, more powerful AC systems will have higher electrical requirements.

 

 

As you assess the cost for your new AC unit, be sure to calculate the cost of AC maintenance down the road. Without proper maintenance, air conditioners will accumulate dust and slowly wear down. This is why we offer regular AC maintenance services or “checkups” to clean blades, cooling coils, and other parts in your AC system. This increases the lifespan of your AC unit and improves its efficiency overall.

One of the most important things to check on AC units is the EER and SEER ratings. The EER rating stands for the energy efficiency rating and the SEER refers to the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. A higher number in each rating means a more energy-efficient air conditioning system.

The next thing to look for are programmable temperature settings. Using this feature, which lets you set a precise temperature and schedule the times when your AC runs. This way, you’re not running your AC during times when you’re not home.

Air conditioners give you cold air by removing the heat and humidity from inside your home and returning cooled air into your home.

Here’s a more detailed look at the components within an air conditioning system:

  • Evaporator: Cooling coils remove warm air and humidity from inside your home using refrigerant.
  • Blower: A fan moves air over the evaporator and disperses the cooled air.
  • Condenser: Heating coils (condenser) move the collected warm air to the outside of your home.
  • Compressor: A compressor moves the refrigerant from the evaporator to the condenser to chill the trapped air.
  • Fan: This blows air over the condenser to pass heat through the outside.
  • Filter: This filter removes particles from the air.
  • Thermostat: This is the control system that you use to control the amount of cooled air that’s distributed.
