Does Your AC Have a Refrigerant Leak?

Monday, September 16th, 2019

AC-manifoldHopefully not, to be honest. We’re not in the business of scare tactics, but we do need you to understand that some air conditioning problems are simply more serious than others. And when it comes to the most serious issues that your air conditioner can encounter, well—a refrigerant leak is right up there. Of course, before you can really understand just why it is that a refrigerant leak is so serious, you must first understand the role that refrigerant plays in your HVAC system in Asheville, NC.

You’re in luck because that’s part of what we’re going to be covering in today’s blog entry. As you’ll learn in the post that follows, an air conditioner without a proper refrigerant charge isn’t really much better than no air conditioner at all. In fact, running an air conditioner with a low charge is a pretty good way to wind up with no air conditioning at all! Don’t let that fate befall you in our hot and humid climate.

Is My Air Conditioner Leaking Water?

Monday, August 19th, 2019

AC-techniciansNo. Well, maybe. But not in the way you’re thinking. Confused? Well, just keep reading!

If you notice water surrounding your indoor AC unit, don’t worry, you’re not imagining it. However, it is important to remember that your air conditioner does not use water in the cooling process. So, that pool of water is not the result of a leaking tank somewhere in the unit, as may be the case with water surrounding a water heater. So what’s the source?

The good news is that A) it may not be a serious issue requiring repairs and B) it may be an issue you can resolve on your own. However, the cause of the problem could mean that there is a larger AC issue at play, and the fact is that any unwanted moisture in your home can result in property damages, biological pollutant growth, etc. Don’t put your air conditioning in Hendersonville, NC, at risk.

Noisy Isn’t Normal: Sounds That Means It Is Time to Call for AC Repair
