AC FAQ: Why Is My System Shutting Down So Much?

Monday, June 17th, 2019

AC-technicianIt’s a frustrating problem. Your air conditioner cycles on, starts to cool your home and to provide you with some relief from the heat, but then it cycles back down again before much headway can be made.

What gives?

Well, this problem actually has a name: short cycling. And like most problems that earn an official title, short cycling is actually much more serious than you may realize. It’s certainly much more than an annoyance.

In today’s post, we’ll be looking at what short cycling is, what can cause it, and what the repercussions of a short cycling air conditioner might be. In one case, it is actually a problem you can resolve on your own. In another, it could be the result of one of the most serious problems that an AC can encounter! For this reason, a professional diagnosis is always best once the most obvious cause is ruled out. When you need air conditioning repair in Atlanta, GA, you need to call us.

Refrigerant Leaks: Serious AC Trouble!

Monday, May 20th, 2019

AC-metersThere may be something to taking the occasional risk but, if you ask us, they’re never worth taking with your air conditioning system! With summers as hot and humid as ours are, you really need your AC to be fully functional at all times. Unfortunately, no one can guarantee that your AC will always function properly. Not truthfully, anyway. If you do find a contractor telling you they’ve got the secret to doing so—find another contractor!

One of the most serious problems that you may encounter with your air conditioning system is a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant plays a vital role in the overall cooling process, so a leak that reduces refrigerant levels cannot be taken lightly. Today, we’ll tell you about some warning signs that can alert you to refrigerant leaks, and what the potential risks of ignoring such signs can be. Remember, our pros are here for you when you need any air conditioning repairs in Atlanta, GA.

It’s Worth Repairing Your AC (This Late in the Season)

Monday, September 10th, 2018

man-with-fanOh boy. The AC really seems to be struggling. But hey, it’s mid-September. It can wait. I’ll just push it through to the end of the cooling season, and have it repaired before I really need it again.

If this is the way that you find yourself thinking about your struggling air conditioner, we implore you to reassess your stance. Sure, your air conditioner may be able to make it through to the other side. Forcing it to do so, however, is definitely not going to do you or your system any favors. Even this late in the season (and remember, our fall weather can be pretty hot too!) it is well worth repairing your air conditioner at the very first sign of trouble. You wouldn’t want to finish up a marathon on a sprained ankle, would you?

When you need AC repair in Atlanta, you need it completed immediately. It is just way too hot for way too much of the year to take any chances with your air conditioner, regardless of the time of the year!

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.
