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.

You need to invest in a good system, and you need to have that system installed by trained, experienced professionals. This is really just the start, though.

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.

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.

How the Size of Your AC Affects Its Performance

Monday, June 18th, 2018

thumbs-upWe have all heard someone say that “bigger is better” at some point. Whether it’s in reference to a piece of machinery or a pizza, there are many cases in which, yes, bigger is better.
