Let’s be honest, homeowners care a lot less about recent advancements in cooling technology than they do about cooling their home affordably. How many times have you been talking to a salesman where you just want to cut them off and ask the burning question—”so, how much?”
We get it. Air conditioners are the same way. There are a lot of highly efficient and technologically advanced comfort systems out there, but they’re not what the majority of Americans use. Most people utilize central air conditioners to cool their home. That’s because a central AC in Winnetka, IL is affordable, effective, and efficient.
We’re going to take a break from talking about some of our more exciting pieces of technology we service, and talk more about a beloved piece of equipment that so many people in our community rave about. Let’s discuss central air conditioners, how they work, and why one could be perfect for your home.
Is your air conditioner making noises? No, we’re not talking about the slight sound of whooshing air or the clicking every now and then when the system turns on. We’re talking about noises like banging, buzzing, screeching, or anything that might keep you up at night. If your system is starting to sound more like a monster that hides under your bed than a quiet, cooling system, then you’re likely got a problem.
These problems are not the kinds of problems you can just ignore. Problems associated with noises almost always signify the need for air conditioning service in Winnetka, IL because of how they can often compound into more expensive issues down the line. Sure, if you don’t care about the condition of your AC and you’re okay with paying exorbitant prices later on, then you can ignore it. For everyone else, keep reading. We’re going to discuss the details of air conditioner noises and what they might mean for you.
Ductless air conditioners are not just specific AC systems for particular types of homes. Sure, in some homes they definitely run better than in others, but that’s not why so many people are using them these days. Ductless air conditioners are all the rage nowadays because they’re hyper-efficient and provide a comfort solution that functions without air ducts. Yep, you heard us right.
You’re probably frustrated, asking us “how the heck could ductless AC in Winnetka, IL cool your home without the use of air ducts?” After all, every movie or tv show has shown us that air ducts are basically required in every home or building imaginable, right?
Wrong. Duct installation services can be expensive and intrusive, especially in older or smaller homes. With a ductless AC, technology allows us to cool a home easily without the use of an air transfer system like ducts. Let us explain how.
Air conditioners struggle to meet our temperature demands here in Illinois. Our summers can get incredibly hot, and if you’re planning on using your system for longer than just a few years, it’s going to need some help. That help can range anywhere from a few DIY tips to full-blown AC maintenance provided by the best HVAC company in Winnetka, IL. The choice is ultimately yours, we’d just like to nudge you in the right direction!
Today, we’re going to talk about a few of those tips for increasing AC efficiency. These aren’t perfect on their own, and each tip only might help efficiency by a tiny margin, but if you plan on using your AC for years to come, those tiny margins add up! When you combine high-efficiency practices with routine maintenance, we can bet that your AC is going to be in fighting shape well into its second decade.
Air conditioners that are set up correctly and properly maintained don’t tend to have catastrophic problems very often. That’s why we advise homeowners so much to have their air conditioning systems set up with the help of a professional. Amateur service can start an air conditioner off badly, leading to a plethora of repair needs down the line—and one of those issues is sizing.
Air conditioners must be sized accordingly, and an air conditioner that is installed by an amateur has a less likely chance of being sized appropriately for your home. Homeowners that deal with an incorrectly sized air conditioner will run into a problem called short cycling, and that’s what our informative blog post is about today. What is short cycling? How does it develop? Will you really need an AC replacement in Winnetka, IL if you’re dealing with a short cycling system?
Keep reading and we’ll get to the bottom of all these questions.
If you’re a homeowner that needs help with your AC that’s leaking refrigerant, then we can help. Leaking refrigerant is a problem all too common with air conditioners, and unless you know exactly what you’re looking for, it can be easy not to notice your ailing system.
The first step in figuring out what kind of help you’ll need with your air conditioner is detecting a refrigerant leak. Problems that arise from leaking refrigerant can take many forms, so it’s important for homeowners to stay vigilant for all of the problems we mention down below. People who can detect a problem and contact a professional for AC repair in Winnetka, IL are going to have a much less expensive and stressful time when the problem is diagnosed—so remember to stay vigilant!
Keep reading if you think your AC might be having trouble with refrigerant.
AC maintenance is the perfect service to sign up for in the springtime. Spring is when we’re winding our heaters down and our air conditioners aren’t in full swing yet, which means we’ve got some downtime to perform inspections and to make sure they’re ready for the fight against scorching temperatures. Is your air conditioner ready?
It’s okay if you didn’t immediately answer yes to that question. Many homeowners don’t know the condition of their AC systems, and how could they? Unless you had background knowledge or training in the field of HVAC, it can be near impossible to know how ready your air conditioner is for summer. So, with something like routine maintenance performed, you get access to a certified, licensed professional who performs an evaluation to give you the green light that your system will survive another year. If that sounds like a good idea, then contact us for AC maintenance in Winnetka, IL.
