Is Your AC Blowing Warm Air?

Monday, July 15th, 2019

woman-too-warmThere are some problems homeowners encounter with their air conditioning systems that don’t really exhibit much in the way of symptoms. That is often why air conditioners wind up seriously damaged—homeowners don’t realize what’s going on, and then they schedule repairs only when trouble is already well underway. In some cases, though, the symptoms encountered are obvious. This is definitely the case with an air conditioner that is blowing warm air. Even then, however, some homeowners defer service.

That is precisely why “good enough” is never good enough when it comes to your air conditioner and its cooling output. The last thing that you want is to put up with a subpar AC performance, only to arrive at a point where costly repairs that could have been avoided with prompt action are needed. Today, we’re going to talk about some reasons why you may run into an AC that is blowing warm air—and why it may not always mean you need air conditioning repair in Milton, GA.

New AC Installation? Why Wait?

Monday, October 8th, 2018

AC-tools-on-topYour initial air conditioning installation in Atlanta is completed on a pretty obvious schedule. It should be installed, up and running, before you move into your home. Why? Well, because we’re talking about Atlanta here, and it is way too hot for way too much of the year to even consider living without a central air conditioner in your residence. It’s not a matter of “I’ll get around to it eventually”.

When it comes to your next air conditioning installation in Atlanta, however, things are not quite so clear-cut. If you think that you’ll just wait until your existing air conditioning system breaks down entirely before you decide to replace it, well, that’s totally within your rights. However, we have to warn you, that is not the way that we’d go about doing it. In the following post, you’ll get some valuable tips about when you should start the new AC installation process—as well as what that process may look like.

Why Is My AC Leaking Water?

Monday, August 13th, 2018

angry-manIf you know a little bit about the ways in which your air conditioner works to cool your home, then you probably already know that a refrigerant leak is one of the most serious problems that you may encounter. What you may not know is that a water leak is another type of issue that you may run into. What you really may not realize is that this is not exactly a water “leak” as you may be thinking of it.

After all, a central air conditioner does not use water in order to cool your home, right? There is no water supply line running to it, and it certainly does not store water in a tank or reservoir of any kind. Does that mean the water that you’re seeing around your indoor unit is some type of wild hallucination, then? No, nothing so exciting/alarming, depending upon your viewpoint.  It may mean that you need residential air conditioning system repair in Atlanta, though.

How Ductless AC Systems Save Homeowners Money

Monday, July 16th, 2018

house-and-money-seesawHere in Georgia, a great air conditioning system is not something that you can take for granted. You need to invest in a quality air conditioner from a trusted manufacturer, and you need to have that new system installed by a qualified professional that you can trust to do the job right. You also need to schedule ongoing maintenance and, yes, occasional repairs with a contractor of this caliber. We have omitted something one important step, though.

That step? Taking the time necessary to explore your air conditioning options fully and choosing your system with the care that such an important decision demands. While the split central air conditioner is certainly a perennial favorite among homeowners, there are a lot of different systems out there that you should at least look into. You may just find that something like a ductless AC system in Atlanta is what you’ve unknowingly wanted all along!

Beware These Heat Pump Noises

Monday, December 19th, 2016

When your heat pump is operating as it should, it typically makes a fairly quite noise, described as a whirring sound when the compressor comes on to start the heat exchange process. You shouldn’t be able to hear any other noises aside from this when your heat pump is running. If you are, then you more than likely have something wrong with your heat pump that requires your attention.

Yes, You Also Need to Change or Clean the Air Filter During Winter

Monday, October 19th, 2015

One of the important steps for regularly maintaining an air conditioning system during the summer is to change its air filter (or clean it if the AC uses a permanent filter) once a month. This advice also extends to your heating system if you have a furnace or other forced-air heater. Usually the heater shares the same cabinet with the air conditioner, and also uses the same filter that is housed where the return air ducts connected with the cabinet.

What Are the Benefits of a Residential Exhaust Fan?

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Exhaust fans aren’t particularly exciting, nor do they change very much, but these steady components can help improve your home’s ventilation a great deal. The ideal placements for exhaust fans are kitchens and bathrooms, as these areas tend to generate a lot of odors and moisture. However, other areas, like garages and laundry rooms, can benefit from exhaust fans, too. Exhaust fans can offer your home several benefits, as we’ll outline below, but to gain any benefit at all, it’s important to hire an expert for installation. The electrical professionals at Premier Indoor Comfort Systems have been helping customers in Atlanta and the surrounding areas since 1999, so if you are looking to install a residential exhaust fan, call us today!

Ducted vs. Non-Ducted

The first thing to know about any exhaust fan you install is that you can choose either a ducted or non-ducted fan. As the names indicate, a ducted fan uses an air duct by which to expel the indoor air and moisture; a non-ducted fan filter air through charcoal, then release the cleaned air back into the room.

Benefits Exhaust Fans Offer

As mentioned above, one of the main benefits an exhaust fan offers your home living spaces is better ventilation. But, there are some other benefits to consider:

  • They help remove excess moisture – exhaust fans pull excess moisture from areas and expel it, removing it permanently from your home. This action can be especially helpful with areas like bathrooms and kitchens.
  • They remove smoke and odors – we’ve all experienced the smoky dinner, or maybe you have a smoker in your home. Exhaust fans help to quickly remove smoke and odors, making your indoor air more breathable.
  • They help improve comfort – exhaust fans help maintain circulation and remove excess moisture, increasing your overall indoor comfort.
