Monday, August 20th, 2018

condenserFirst off, note that we didn’t say a perfect AC performance. An air conditioner, even the best one on the market and even those installed by trained, experienced professionals, is still a  mechanical system. That means that, like any other mechanical system, they are subject to occasional operational problems. When that time comes, you can count on us to provide you with exceptional air conditioning repairs. Our air conditioning services in Hanford, CA are nothing if not comprehensive.

Okay, that being said, how can you get the best performance that your air conditioner can offer?  That is the subject of today’s post. Just because we’re already pretty far into the summer season doesn’t mean that this type of information can’t still be of use! So read on, and remember that our technicians are the ones that you want on the job if you want the best performance possible from your home cooling system.

Why Your AC Is Running Irregularly

Monday, 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?

Monday, 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?

Monday, 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.

The Benefits of Using a Central Air Conditioner

Monday, May 15th, 2017

AC-outdoor-unitLiving in California means that homeowners have a lot to enjoy. The food, the sunshine, the culture, and the general atmosphere is more than enough to recommend the lifestyle. Ensuring that you are able to enjoy your days here as fully as possible also means that you need to take measures to keep your home comfortable, of course. While we don’t live in the hottest area of the state, it still gets warmer than is comfortable for most people regularly. That is why you need to have a great air conditioner in place.

If you are trying to keep a single room or a small apartment comfortable during the hottest time of the year, then window unit air conditioners may do the trick. They are far from ideal for cooling a whole house down, though. When temperatures soar, you want to cool your home reliably and affordably. That is why you really should opt for a central air conditioner in Clovis, CA instead.
