3 Reasons the Size of Your AC Matters

Monday, July 20th, 2020

AC-unitWhen you are in the market for a new air conditioner, what are you looking for? If your answer is “the cheapest system I can find,” then you’re setting yourself up for failure.

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…)

Monday, May 25th, 2020

AC-techWait a second, some homeowners seem to think, they want me to spend money servicing my air conditioner when there is nothing wrong with it! What a scam!

Has Your AC Lost Some of Its Efficiency?

Monday, May 11th, 2020

AC-manifoldThere are a lot of great air conditioning systems on the market today, and we employ some of the finest air conditioning technicians in the industry. Even purchasing the best equipment and having it installed and serviced by the best technicians cannot guarantee a problem-free home cooling experience, though. In fact, we can guarantee that you will encounter air conditioning problems at some point. When you do, it is important to resolve them promptly. Otherwise, you’re wasting money!

While there are a lot of reasons your air conditioner may falter in its performance quality, one thing is pretty much certain across the board. Your system won’t operate as efficiently as it otherwise would if it is not kept in the best working condition possible. Of all the symptoms that homeowners may encounter, it is a drop in energy efficiency that might stand out the most. After all, the only thing more aggravating than a subpar cooling performance on a hot summer day is paying too much for it, too!

Have Your Ducts Sealed Before Summer Strikes

Monday, April 27th, 2020

ductHave you noticed that your air conditioning system isn’t as efficient as it used to be? Is this especially frustrating because you know that you’ve been diligent in scheduling routine air conditioning maintenance? That is a frustrating scenario, but don’t go replacing your entire air conditioner in Asheville, NC,  just yet. The AC itself may be working just fine. It may not be getting the support that it needs from your ductwork, though. We can help with our duct sealing services.

Now, we know what at least some of you are thinking. Duct sealing—of course! Why didn’t I think of that? Not so fast! Don’t even think about reaching for a roll of duct tape and trying to do this job on your own. Duct sealing is a job for professionals and not a job at all for duct tape! In fact, that stuff should never actually be applied to ducts, despite its many other uses.  (more…)

Monday, April 13th, 2020

air-conditionerWhen you own a home, you and you alone are responsible for making sure that you have everything that you need to live in the comfort that you deserve. That means not only investing in a great air conditioning system but eventually replacing that great air conditioning system with a new model. Make no mistake about it—you are going to need to schedule an air conditioning replacement in Asheville, NC eventually. No AC is going to keep running indefinitely.
