Don’t Fall for DIY HVAC Tips

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

heating-technicianPeople love DIY projects. There are websites dedicated to providing you with tips and tricks about how to do certain projects yourself. Certainly, you can build yourself a new centerpiece, or even paint an old coffee table, but there are some projects that are better left to experienced professionals.

HVAC projects require the hands of a trained technician. Often, doing something yourself leads to further damage. We understand that there are thousands of “how-to” videos online, but HVAC technicians undergo years of training to master their skills. Simply watching a video is not enough training for HVAC repairs.

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.
