Choosing the right air conditioning system for your home involves careful consideration. Depending on the options and features you have in mind, our sales associates can make professional recommendations on the best system to fit your wants and needs. Then we can take care of the entire installation process, from start to finish. Beginning with an initial consultation, we will provide you with an accurate estimate and once the installation is complete we will share some maintenance tips and go over how to work your new AC system and thermostat. Our technicians always ensure your air conditioner is set for optimal operation to maximize energy efficiency.
After a certain amount of time, a complete system replacement may be necessary. On average, air conditioners that are more than 10 years old should be replaced. We also recommend AC replacement when the repairs exceed 50% of your system’s value. Investing in a new AC system may seem expensive at the time, but our new systems prove worthwhile when you consider the associated annual energy savings. If you’re unsure if replacement is your best option, we can evaluate your system and make our informed recommendation.
Common Air Conditioning Issues
If your air conditioner is broken or not working well, follow these steps before you call us:
- My AC doesn’t turn on – First, check the thermostat and make sure it is functioning properly. Change the batteries or check electrical power and make sure it is set correctly. If your thermostat is working as it should, check your breakers and make sure the breaker to the air conditioner hasn’t been tripped and that the fuse looks good.
- My AC blows warm air – Clean the filters and replace any that cannot be cleaned, such as the ones that use oil to collect dust and debris. The refrigerant level may be low. If this is the case, a licensed HVAC repair technician must be called to fill it back up.
- My AC won’t turn off – Your fan may be stuck on. To check, turn the fan to the “auto” position and see if your fan is still running. If the fan turns off as it should, it could be low coolant levels or your air conditioner is too small for the size of your home.
