Why Your AC Is Running Irregularly

August 6th, 2018

woman-with-fanToo often, homeowners fail to report problems with their air conditioning systems early on. Sometimes this is due to the fact that they think the issue at hand is just “no big deal”. Other times, they figure that they’ll just wait for a system to break down before addressing the problem, which you should never do. In many instances, however, homeowners simply fail to realize that something is wrong. This is especially common when dealing with irregular cooling cycles.

As long as the air conditioner is starting up and is blowing out cool air, some people just assume that the system is doing fine. This really is not the case, though. Short cycling is something that affects many air conditioners, for many reasons, and it can cause many problems. The fact that an air conditioner is running doesn’t mean that it’s running right. Fortunately, you can always count on us for quality air conditioning repair in Fresno, CA.

Wait—Air Conditioners Get Water Leaks?

July 9th, 2018

AC-technicianYou may not have much cause to meander past your indoor air conditioning unit all that often, depending upon its location in your home. You should be in its direct vicinity at least on a monthly basis, however, because you need to change its air filter at least that often. So what if you are passing by your unit, and you notice that it is surrounded by water? What would you do in that instance? Assume that you have a water leak and call a professional plumber?

Well, the problem with this is that air conditioning systems do not actually use water in their efforts to cool your home. They do not have a water tank of any kind, nor are they fed water for any purpose. So—where the heck is this water coming from? And should I be concerned? The short answers to these questions are frustratingly vague. There are a few potential problems that could be behind it and: maybe. So let’s take a closer look at the issue, and help to determine if you need professional air conditioning repair in Hanford, CA.

What Do AC Coils Do?

June 25th, 2018

outdoor-AC-unitsMost homeowners do not really have a thorough knowledge of how their air conditioning systems work to cool their homes, much less the various components that the system uses to do so. While we don’t expect you to be an expert on such matters—after all, that’s what we’re here for—we do think that it is in every homeowner’s best interest to have a basic understanding of their air conditioning system.  That is why we’re focusing on a couple of specific components today.

These components are your air conditioner’s coils. More specifically, the evaporator coil and the condenser coil. These coils perform fairly similar, if reversed functions. Do you know what else they have in common? If they are damaged or even just very dirty, your air conditioner and the overall quality of its performance is at risk. That is why the Fresno, CA air conditioning pros on our team want you to understand just how important your air conditioning coils really are.

May 14th, 2018

AC-technicianOnce the heat of summer really gets back into full swing, is your air conditioning system going to be there for you in order to keep your home cool and comfortable? Obviously, investing in good equipment and keeping that equipment well-maintained by scheduling annual tune-ups is going to give your system a good fighting chance. The truth is, however, that even the best and most well-maintained systems will stumble from time to time.

Can I Cool My Home without Ducts?

April 30th, 2018

ductless-blowerYes, you can—and no, you do not have to do so with multiple window unit air conditioners installed throughout the house. While these window units do have their uses, such as cooling a single dorm room or maybe a studio apartment, they are far from ideal for cooling an entire house. When the heat comes back to our area, and it will come back hard, you need to know that residential AC system is up to the task at hand.

That is why you should consider using a ductless mini split system in your home. The system may not be ideal for every home or every homeowner, but no system is. For those homeowners that the system is the right fit for, there is nothing that can compare to the many benefits that ductless air conditioning has to offer. Just remember that any air conditioner that you invest in is only as good as your air conditioning service in Clovis, CA.
