Air Conditioning Repair and Maintenance Tips Continued

The middle of summer is a terrible time to face a problem with central air conditioning systems. Unfortunately, this is the most common time for such issues to surface. The frustration of paying for a repair is coupled with the discomfort of not having cool air circulating through your home. You may wonder if it’s possible to avoid such breakdowns. Our experts can provide air conditioning service for both repair and maintenance needs. Give us a call at Air Quality Control if you are ready to schedule an appointment.


Can I Do a Tune-Up on My Own?

While it might seem economical to take a DIY approach to air conditioner repair, you may do more harm than good in the process. This is particularly true if you are thinking about recharging your own refrigerant. There are many restrictions on the use and servicing of equipment that uses Freon for cooling. Most suppliers won’t sell the product to homeowners. If you don’t have an HVAC license, you probably won’t be able to obtain your own supply for your air conditioner. Puron isn’t a valid alternative to Freon. Your equipment must be serviced with the correct refrigerant. Our contractors provide affordable pricing on the service, and proper levels of refrigerant will make a big difference in the efficiency of your AC system.

What Should I Do if My AC Breaks Down Repeatedly?

If you are faced with many instances of equipment malfunctions, then you should begin to think about replacing your unit. Every homeowner needs to plan for this possibility. While equipment can last for a couple of decades, it will eventually require replacement. It’s helpful to realize that modern systems are more efficient than those produced as recently as a decade ago. This means that replacing your unit will provide an immediate improvement in energy use and cost reduction.

How Do I Decide on the Best Air Conditioner for My Home?

Our professionals can do a load calculation in order to determine what equipment will meet your household cooling demands. You may want to think about selecting a heat pump instead of an air conditioner as a heat pump will address both heating and cooling needs. We can help you evaluate the possibilities and the costs so that you are able to make the best decision.

We will help you examine systems that are eligible for energy tax credits as well. In some cases, the installation of a new system will enable you to quickly recover part of your investment. We can also help you explore air quality products that can improve the condition of your home environment. Give us a call to get started in evaluating the options.
