Air condition repairs -Dutchess
Maintanance on heating and cooling components is just as important as the maintenence on your car. The same theory is true for your air conditioner or heat pump. If you don’t service your air conditioner or heat pump regularly, you’ll find yourself calling us in for a repair. An air conditioner is a rigid piece of equipment. Designed to withstand all sorts of abuse and keep on running. This is great in most respects, but you to have the unit maintained for it to run properly…
Without regular maintenance an air conditioner loses about 5% of it’s original efficiency for each year of operation. This means that the high quality unit that you bought just a few years ago may be functioning like a low quality unit today! But with proper maintenance you can recover most of that lost efficiency through regular maintenance.
You see with regular tune-ups a unit will maintain up to 95% of it’s original efficiency. This means that the cost of an annual tune-up is recovered very quickly in savings on your monthly electric bill and reduced repair costs. A properly serviced air conditioner will also do a better job of dehumidifying your home. So net and net It is cheaper to have us come out and do a service once a year on your system.
Air Condition Repair
We offer New customers a special discount in the beginning of the year. We even offer annual service programs that insure that you will be reminded of the need to service the unit at the beginning of the cooling and heating seasons.
What do we do in maintenance inspection: We clean the condensing unit coils, checking the amp draw of the compressor, check filters, checking that belts are well adjusted, and checking the system operating pressures and temperatures against the manufacturers specifications.
One of the most important items to check is the Freon in the air conditioner. A system that is only 10% low on coolant will cost about 20% more to operate! The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) recommends that coolant levels be checked every year.
The laws governing CFC’s now do not allow your air conditioner contractor to add Freon to a leaky system. They are first required to find and fix the leak in the system. That is if the system is leaking.
There are some things in addition to yearly tune-ups that you can do to help ensure a high level of comfort and proper system operation. First, buy good filters and change them regularly. Next, keep bushes and other materials away from the outside unit of your air conditioner. Another good idea is to avoid closing supply air in your house. In almost all cases, closing supply outlets is harmful to the operation of the overall system.
