Homeowners love their heating and cooling system, but sometimes they forget to regularly check on it and see if there are any problems that need to be addressed. A poorly maintained system will perform poorly and can break down just when it’s needed the most, putting the homeowner in an uncomfortable situation. This can all be prevented if regular maintenance is carried out with the help of an experienced AC contractor in Haughton. Heating and cooling systems would have three basic components: source of air, means of air distribution to the different rooms and a way to regulate the system (such as a thermostat). Common problems with the system are usually caused by one of these components. While central air conditioning systems are a bit more complex, they make up for it with its reliability.

If you’re tapping a reliable AC contractor in Haughton like AccuTemp Cooling and Heating for your first AC purchase and installation job, you’re likely to find a ductless air conditioning unit among its array of offerings. In a nutshell, a ductless AC system is one you’ll likely see in a room or a home without the usual HVAC ductwork. It is otherwise known as a “mini-split,” owing to the fact that it is composed of only two main parts: the outdoor compressor and a number of indoor evaporators or air handlers. People may think that ductless ACs are equal to window ACs. That wouldn’t be wrong, but ductless ACs possess a handful of qualities that their counterparts don’t have. Here are a few of them.
Air conditioners are designed to cool you down in sweltering weather in order to keep you comfortable. By doing so, they help you sleep better, but what if they’re noisy? If the noise they produce becomes a bit too excessive (not to mention manifesting in irregular patterns), it usually points to a problem with the compressor. No AC owner wants a failing compressor. Along with blowing warm air, leaks and hard starts, excessive noise is one of the benchmarks for a malfunctioning compressor. The usual whirr when the AC runs is common, but if it’s accompanied by sounds like squealing and knocking, it means your compressor is in for some hard times—and you’ll need the services of a local Shreveport air conditioning company like AccuTemp Cool and Heating real soon.

Air-conditioners may be likened to refrigerators in how they work, that is, by transferring indoor heat to the outdoors using simple evaporation and condensation. No matter what type of AC unit you have in your home, one of the most common defects you can encounter is a faulty air condenser. Before calling in a professional, you will have to inspect the equipment for any anomalies like a tripped circuit breaker or ruined fuse. If the damage is more serious like a faulty motor or compressor, you should immediately seek emergency air conditioning repair in Bossier City, LA. Another typical problem with AC units is when they function but fail to provide adequate cool air to the whole house or room, particularly when the outside temperature is over 100 degrees. Still another is when your AC constantly switches on and off. In both cases, you can try giving the entire unit, including the evaporators and the condenser units, a thorough cleaning to remove any dirt.

An air conditioner is a complex machine that is made up of many moving parts that work together to make the unit run. It could come to a point where the air conditioning unit will start making strange or funny noises. This is often pretty normal, but if the unit starts to sound differently, however, this is generally a bad sign. In some cases, a noisy unit may be beyond repair, but more often than not, it is nothing that a Shreveport air conditioning expert can’t fix. The first thing that has to be done is to identify where the sound is coming from. Most of the time, air conditioning noises come from the fan, the compressor, or the condenser coil, but it can also originate from any other part. Before any maintenance work can be done, the circuit breaker must be turned off, as well as the air conditioning unit itself. Only after that can the unit be checked and worked on.

Summer is still a few months away, though mid-2015 is almost upon us. For Shreveport residents, mid-year can only mean one thing: skyrocketing temperatures. While the heat wave is fairly distant as of now, today would be a good time to have your air conditioner seen to by local Shreveport air conditioning technicians before the heat wave hits. Air conditioners, however, can fail due to various factors—some of which are explored in detail below. Dirty air filter – An A/C unit’s air filter acts as a safety net to protect the appliance’s innards from dirt and pollutants. If the filter isn’t cleaned properly, then the flow of air into your home’s ducts will be impeded, forcing your A/C system to work harder than usual. Subsequently, the strain could prove too much for the A/C unit to handle and cause it to break down.

Like any household equipment that has been neglected for a time, an air conditioner that is seldom maintained will likely conk out sooner or later, and sometimes, in the worst possible moment when you or the health of a family member depends on it. Modern air conditioning units usually have a fresh air cooling option, which means they are able to filter source air so that the air that flows into the home is free from harmful substances. This also means that if the AC is nonoperational, these allergens and other noxious substances are free to circulate around your home. Herein lies the importance of a Bossier City air conditioning repair service. Take a look at some of the air pollutants that, if left unmanaged, can severely affect your family’s health.

Much of that growth can be attributed to air conditioning systems gaining wider acclaim as technology advanced and industries and their offices opened up. Likewise, if not for air conditioners, Dubai and other hubs of business and technology in hot regions of the globe may never have taken off as well. Now that you know the important role that air conditioners plays in society, it’s only fair to acknowledge the important role it plays in your home, and the need to keep your AC system running smoothly.

The air quality inside your home could turn out worse than the air outside. The conventional cleaners that you use for your home to clean your floor or carpets could diffuse lead, formaldehyde, and other volatile and harmful chemicals. The longer people spend time indoors breathing pollutants in the air, the more they are exposed to the ill effects on health of poor indoor air quality. Those living with smokers in the house run an even bigger risk of acquiring respiratory tract infections. Cigarette smoke comprises one of the top three toxic irritants that pose great danger to people’s health inside their own home. There are many ways to reduce the proliferation of indoor pollutants, given the latest home technologies. HEPA air filters, for instance, are efficient at removing airborne particles circulating indoors.

While your air conditioning system cools your room, the heat pump, on the other hand, is responsible for letting the heat out. Instead of the usual refrigerant cooling system, heat pumps can efficiently cool (or heat) a room by transferring heat from one location to another. Heat pumps simply transfer heat, and are therefore greener than your gas-burning unit. As such, they can help lower your monthly energy bills. Take responsibility to learn more about how your Shreveport air conditioning system can work more efficiently for you, delivering optimum and longer-lasting performance and minimizing the need for constant AC repairs. If you’re at a loss whether to go for new installation or opt for repairs, consult with highly skilled AC technicians from established companies, such as AccuTemp Cool and Heating to provide skillful assessment of the situation, and offer a fair estimate of their installation work or repair.
