Each summer, your air conditioning system takes on a heavy burden: keeping your house and family comfortably cool through the heat. It’s easy to take an air conditioning system for granted—a utility that’s always there when you need it—but age and wear eventually overtake any AC. Even the best maintenance won’t keep an air conditioner running forever. 

Now that summer is ending, we recommend you take stock of your air conditioning system’s performance over the season. Think about how well it cooled the house, how dependable it was, if it needed repairs or other services, how much it cost to run, its age, etc. Take all this information, and then give your air conditioner a grade on the standard “A through F” scale you remember from school. Then check our reference guide below.

If you do, then we can help you. When it comes to air conditioning in Wayne, PA, we’re the local pros with more than 40 years of experience installing, repairing, and maintaining air conditioning systems. 

Central air conditioners make large demands on the electrical system of a home. That’s one of the reasons an overworked AC can cause a circuit breaker to trip. When an air conditioner goes into its cooling cycle, the compressor consumes about 3,500 watts per hour. To put this in perspective, running the AC in “fan-only” mode consumes about 500 watts per hour. This will give you an idea of how much energy goes into cooling your house.

If you noticed steeper electrical costs this summer, there are several possibilities for why it’s happening. We’ll look into these causes and some steps you can take to get those bills down.

Cooler weather will soon settle in and you’ll stop using the air conditioning system for a few months. It’s a nice relief, especially since we don’t have stern winter weather in New Orleans. In fact, you may be tempted to simply forget about the AC and leave it be until you need it again next year. And this is fine … as long as the air conditioner doesn’t have anything wrong with it. For example, maybe there was some malfunction you noticed that you think you can tolerate until you need the AC back up in full form next year.

If this is the case, if there’s something amiss with your AC, such as odd noises, short-cycling, a drop in cooling power, or strange smells, please don’t let the system go into shutdown mode yet. You have one more job to do: calling us for AC repair in Wayne, PA.

When you turn on your air conditioner, you expect it to send cooled air to all the rooms in the house attached to the ventilation system. After all, that’s why you have a central air conditioner: to provide cooling all around your house.

But what if you notice the AC isn’t giving your house the even cooling treatment it’s supposed to? You can expect some temperature fluctuations in the house based on room placement, insulation, and window exposure. However, if you find rooms are much hotter than they should be while others are fine (or even too cold), you have a problem with the HVAC system.

Fall doesn’t immediately arrive when it’s September, and even the official start of fall at the end of the month isn’t a guarantee that temperatures will continue to cool down—if they’ve even been cooling down to begin with. But people have a fall mindset that kicks in with September, and unfortunately, that often means neglecting necessary air conditioning repair in Wayne, PA. “Well, I soon won’t need the AC at all, so why should I rush out to have it repaired?” they think.

There are plenty of reasons to make AC repairs a priority as soon as you believe your air conditioner needs them.

Monday, June 15th, 2020

Air conditioning systems aren’t necessarily “quiet” systems (although advancing technology has reduced the amount of sound they make). You expect to hear several sounds as your home’s AC runs: the fans, the motor powering the compressor, the drip of water from the condensate pan, and the movement of air through the ductwork. It’s an easy set of sounds to become accustomed to until it turns into part of the soundtrack of summer—a soothing white noise for hot days.

Then … something strange interrupts the AC soundscape. Something odd, or loud, or unexpected. Could it be a malfunction in the AC?

It might, and we’re going to look over a few of the more common cautionary sounds you might hear from your air conditioning system. When in doubt, you’ll want to have trained HVAC technicians on the job to see what’s wrong, and what needs to be fixed.
