How big an air conditioner do you need for your home?

You may find this a strange question. Obviously, you want an air conditioner that will fit where it’s supposed to go. But the “size” of an air conditioner isn’t about the amount of space it takes up. It’s the amount of cooling it can put out. 

Finding the right system for your AC installation in West Chester, PA is more complicated than just picking a system you think is powerful enough to keep your house cool. A home needs a specific size air conditioner, one that’s neither too small or too large. Yes, too large is a problem, and far too many amateurs make the mistake of putting in an air conditioner that’s too powerful for the home it’s supposed to keep comfortable.

Watch Out for the “Overcharged AC”

Monday, June 20th, 2022

The overcharge we’re talking about here has nothing to do with the initial price of an air conditioner. An AC system is overcharged if it has too much refrigerant in it. The amount of refrigerant in an air conditioner is known as the system’s charge, and each AC model is designed to use a precise charge. Either too little (undercharged) or too much (overcharged) is bad news for the AC. It leads to malfunctions, poor performance, and an eventual system breakdown.

As you get into your summer preparation in West Chester, PA, we want to address the danger of the overcharged AC. Unfortunately, unscrupulous people posing as HVAC experts often advise homeowners they need to “refill” or “top off”their AC’s refrigerant before summer. This is 100% false! We’ll go into the overcharged AC problem more below.

What Parts Make a Heat Pump Different from an Air Conditioner?

Monday, October 18th, 2021

Heat pumps are similar to air conditioners. In fact, air conditioners are technically classified as a type of heat pump. A heat pump is a device that uses the circulation of refrigerant to pump heat from one location to another. In the case of an air conditioner, the system is designed to pump heat in one direction: from inside a house to the outside. A standard heat pump is designed to be able to switch the direction it can move heat so that it operates as both a cooling system and a heating system depending on the setting. 

For a heat pump to work in both modes, it has several features an air conditioner doesn’t have. To help you better understand how a heat pump is able to serve its two functions, we’re going to take a look at what parts make it different from an air conditioner.

When an AC’s Compressor Dies, Does the AC Have to Be Replaced?

Monday, July 26th, 2021

If you’re reading this because the compressor in your home’s air conditioning system has burnt out, we do have to be honest that this is not great news. The compressor is the heart of an air conditioning system, almost literally because it causes refrigerant to circulate through the rest of the air conditioner and carry out the heat exchange cycle that cools your house. The compressor consumes the most amount of electricity of any component in the AC (and often all the appliances in your house), and when it fails, it may mean the entire AC is finished.

But is this always true? You may have heard that “dead compressor = finished air conditioner.” There is some truth to this. There are also exceptions. We’ll take a look at four different steps you can take when AC repair in West Chester, PA won’t bring back a compressor.
