Diagnosing air-conditioning problems is usually not something a homeowner can repair. There are many different signs that as a homeowner you can realize and call us before any bigger problem can occur. Things to look for that are easily noticeable are broken wires, unit freezing, clogged drain, not cool enough in the house or dirty filters.

Things like bad capacitors, or system is low on charge due to leaks, bad motors or other parts in the system that are not noticeable and only an experienced hvac technician can diagnose and repair and AC unit.

Good To Know

  • A non-profit organization, examined air condtioner manufcacturers' efficiencies versus the actua lefficiencies that resulted after installation: 90% of the units tested exhibited some sort of energy-wasting problem 50% had an improper refrigerant charge 40% failed to meet minimum airflow criteria 20% were barely inside the range specified by manufacturers A deficiency of only 20% of indoor ariflow reduces the efficiency rating by 17% A 15% return air leak from a 120 degree attic could reduce efficiency by 50%

  • Discovered that a 23% refrigirant undercharge could result i a 52% efficiency loss

  • Says that a microbial growth accumemlates on a wet evaporator coil and acts as an insulator. it reduces heat transfer from the air. As little as 0.05" build-up of a stickey, dirty substance on the cooling coil can cut efficencies up to 32%. In case a system will need to operate longer to achieve the set temperature, wasting energy and increasing wer and tear on the unit.

  • Found thatr consumers could save $30.00 per month just by making sure that their ariconditioning system is cleaned and serviced regularly. LSU determined that without proper air filtration, airflow can be reduced by 30% over time Capacity can be reduced by over 12%  

  • States that a typical heating pump would lose almost 50% of its efficiency after 20 years., even if a typical "dust stop" filter had been installed. Also in 20 years, a unit's efficiency could degrade by 50% if it is not properly maintained. This would double the energy cost.

  • Researchers found that by repairing leaking ductwork, cooling energy ws reduced by an average of 17.4%
