AC-technicianWhen you need central AC repair in Asheville, NC, you must act quickly. Just because your air conditioner has not broken down entirely does not mean you time to spare.

What Causes AC Water Leaks?

Monday, June 22nd, 2020

heat-pump-replacementThe title of this post is a bit of a trick question. There certainly may be water pooling around your air conditioning unit, and we definitely want to talk about the problems that could cause that issue and their solutions. Right off the bat, though, we do want to remind you that your air conditioner does not actually use water in the cooling process. There is no reservoir in the system that could spring a leak.

Again, this doesn’t mean that you’re not actually seeing water around your AC unit. It just means that it’s not really the result of a water leak as you’re thinking of it. If you notice water surrounding your air conditioner in Asheville, NC, you have every reason to be concerned. However, you may be surprised at how simple a fix your system is in for. Unfortunately, you may also be surprised with a pretty serious problem! We’ll let you know for sure.

Little Refrigerant Leak? BIG Problem!

Monday, June 8th, 2020

ac-techniciansLeaks, in general, should be taken seriously. If the attitude that you adopt toward leaks is that there is no such thing as a “minor” leak, then you don’t wind up wasting money due to, say, a dripping faucet. It’s not a big leak, but those drips add up! In some cases, though, even “small” leaks can have much more immediate consequences. This is definitely the case with refrigerant leaks. If you have a refrigerant leak of any size, act fast!

Your air conditioner in Asheville, NC, uses refrigerant in order to cool your home. That refrigerant does not get used up like gas in a car. It exists in a closed system, cycling back and forth from the indoor to outdoor units, over and over. If that closed loop leaks, you’ll run into a lot of different problems. Let’s explore why refrigerant leaks are such a major concern, and how to spot the signs of such leaks in your system.  (more…)

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.
