Air Conditioning Noises You Should Never Ignore

Monday, August 6th, 2018

Air-Conditioner-TechAir conditioning problems come in many forms, some of which are easy to spot, and some not so much. We recommend that you have a professional conduct maintenance on your air conditioner every year, so you know that it’s ready for the added strain of the summer season. Preventive maintenance is not a guarantee, though.

There is still a chance that you can have problems come up with your system between appointments, which is why you need to be sure to keep an eye out for signs that your air conditioning system is in trouble. One of the most common ways to tell if your air conditioner is in trouble is to listen for odd noises coming from the system. (more…)

Why Does My AC Keep Tripping the Circuit Breaker?

Monday, August 1st, 2016

It’s the middle of a hot day, and suddenly the air conditioning system that’s keeping your home cooled down and pleasant shuts off. You go to the circuit breaker panel to check on it (something you should always do whenever a large appliance in your house stops working) and find that the breaker for the AC has tripped. You reset it, turn the AC back on… only to have the circuit breaker trip again not long afterwards. And it happens again and again.

Air Conditioning Myth: “Noisy Is Normal”

Monday, July 18th, 2016

An air conditioning system cannot run in complete silence. Regardless of how far technology develops to lower the sounds coming from the motors, compressor, and fans, there is no way that a AC can be designed and manufactured to work without creating any noise volume.

However, the idea that it’s normal for an air conditioning system to work noisily each time it comes on is also false. There’s a threshold of sound that an AC shouldn’t cross. If your home’s cooling system begins to become what you would call “noisy,” then it’s time to either have it repaired… or have it replaced. (more…)

Air Conditioner Short-Cycling: What It Is, What Causes It?

Monday, June 6th, 2016

One of the more common problems that air conditioning systems encounter is something called short-cycling. This is when the air conditioner starts up and runs for only a short time before shutting down, then turns on a brief time later, getting caught in a start-and-stop repetition. This is a serious problem for an air conditioner because it places immense strain on its components, particularly the compressor. The amount of energy that short-cycling drains will also result in a steep rise in bills. Because the AC won’t be able to complete its full cooling cycle, it will also result in a poor distribution of cold air through the rooms. (more…)

Help: My AC Won’t Shut Off and There’s Ice on It!

Monday, May 30th, 2016

You may have heard that ice appearing on an air conditioning system is not a good sign… and it’s true. An air conditioner doesn’t use ice as part of the process of cooling down a home. What it actually does is use chemical refrigerant that moves through a process of evaporation and condensation to absorb heat from inside a house and exhaust it to the outside. If ice develops during this process, it means something has gone wrong that’s triggering water moisture to freeze along the evaporator coil. (more…)

The Dangers of Low Refrigerant in an Air Conditioning System

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

People often misunderstand the role of refrigerant (a.k.a. “Freon”) in an air conditioner. Refrigerant is not a type of fuel: an AC doesn’t use up its refrigerant as it runs the way that a car uses gasoline or a cell phone drains its electrical charge. Refrigerant remains at the same level in an air conditioner as it moves between liquid and gaseous states, absorbing heating through evaporation and then releasing it through condensation.
