How to Tell That an Air Conditioner Needs Troubleshooting

It is important to recognize when an air conditioner is just beginning to malfunction. By seeking out necessary repairs early on, one can avoid an unpleasant breakdown in the middle of summer. Many expensive AC replacements come from procrastinating repairs, so do not delay to call. Our technicians are ready to help with any AC issue, no matter what kind of model or make.

A few of the most typical indicators that an AC needs repairs include:

What about closing air vents? Although it would seem that closing air vents is a great way to conserve energy, the opposite is true. Closing the vents forces the heating system to overwork, which actually increases energy consumption and costs. However, partially closed vents are okay, since it still allows air to flow properly through the HVAC system.

When to Replace Heater Air Filters

Typically, inexpensive filters will last between 1 to 3 months. High-efficiency filters, on the other hand, only need to be changed once or twice a year. The frequency of changing these filters depends on the level of contaminants in a home. For example, homes with pets will generally need to change filters more regularly than those without. 

Every heating system has at least one air filter. The air filter is an important component that keeps contaminants from going into the heating unit. Many heating systems have a second filter that filters the air that passes through the return vents. When these filters become clogged with dust and debris it’s important to change them. Dirty filters can cause the heating unit to work harder than necessary, as well as diminish indoor air quality.

Here Are a Few Things about Us That You Should Know:

  • Most people tend to think that bigger is better. Nothing could be further from the truth when talking about your heating and cooling system. Proper sizing of your HVAC system ensures supreme comfort. When it comes to heating your home, you do not want to do what is called surface heat. Surface heat is when the furnace comes on and only runs for a couple of minutes and then it turns off. What you want to happen is for the furnace to run for several minutes or so to remove the coldness from the furniture, walls, etc. On the cooling side of things, you want the air conditioning system to run for longer cycles to remove humidity from the home. 

 

  • With induction of new freon, R410A (which takes the place of the old R22) you can no longer just change to outside unit; the complete air conditioning system has to be changed (A-coil in the furnace and line set). Unfortunately, some companies take the cheap route by trying to flush the old-line set so they can save a couple of dollars by not changing it out. On every A/C we install, we change the line set whenever possible. There are a few rare occasions where you just can’t, but other than that, we always change them.
  • We also solder with nitrogen charge in the line set to ensure that no dirt or particles are in the refrigeration system.

 

  • We recommend that every home has a 2-stage high efficiency furnace. Here’s why. A furnace is designed to be able to warm your home on the coldest days of the year. However, on the not-so-cold days your furnace is wasting all that fuel. It is only that cold a few days out of the year. On the rest of the days, you don’t need all of that heating power. A 2-stage furnace has the ability to work on a lower speed saving you all of that energy. When we have a bitter cold day or week, the 2-stage furnace has the ability to switch to a high speed. Only when you need it!!

 

  • We pride ourselves on our work and stand behind what we do! We put our heart and soul into our systems. Contact us today and experience the Barbour Heating & Air difference. You will be glad you did!!
