Couple Your AC with a Dehumidifier This Summer

July 13th, 2020

Air conditioners are natural dehumidifiers, we know this. In the process of cooling the air in your home, they also remove moisture from the air through condensation. This is great because that moisture can lead to us feeling incredibly uncomfortable and hotter than we would otherwise.

However, your air conditioner, believe it or not, isn’t well-equipped to do a whole lot of dehumidifying. In fact, it can stress your air conditioner out and cause excess wear and tear that could break it down more quickly over time. That’s why we provide installations for dehumidifiers in Akron, OH. These indoor air quality powerhouses can remove large amounts of moisture from your home and leave your air conditioner to do what it does best—cool.

Let’s talk about what this combo can do. Having both an air conditioner and a dehumidifier is a great way to get comprehensive cooling without stressing out your AC.

Does Your AC Need a Refrigerant Refill? Probably Not!

June 29th, 2020

If you ever hear a so-called “HVAC technician” tell you that it’s time to give your air conditioner a refrigerant refill, run the other direction as fast as you can! This technician either has no idea what they’re talking about or they’re trying to pull a fast one on you.

Unfortunately, people are often confused about how refrigerant in an air conditioning system works. They often assume that refrigerant is a type of fuel and the AC will eventually run low on it. Like an automobile, it needs to have more fuel put in to keep it going.

This isn’t how refrigerant works at all. An AC may at some point require more refrigerant, but this is a repair, not a regular task. We’ll explain below to help you understand when you may need more refrigerant, and why most of the time you won’t.

Ice on the Air Conditioner? No, That Should Not Happen!

June 15th, 2020

Since most people don’t know the inner workings of their home air conditioning systems, they may think the appearance of ice along the evaporator coil is something normal. After all, the AC blows out air that feels frigid, as if it were blown across an Arctic landscape. So shouldn’t ice be a normal byproduct of the air conditioner cooling down a house?

The answer is no, not at all.

When an air conditioner is running properly, ice will never appear on it. If ice does show up on the evaporator coil (the spot where it will start) it means that something is wrong with the system. If this happens to your air conditioner, you will probably need to call for air conditioning repair in Akron, OH.

When Is It Time to Stop AC Repairs and Get a New One?

June 1st, 2020

As much as you’d love for your current air conditioner to last for as long as you own your house, the stress on an AC will eventually catch up with it. Even with the best regular maintenance, you can expect the system to reach a point where it’s more cost-effective–not to mention more comfortable–for you to have a new system put in rather than pay for yet another repair.

But aside from the air conditioner suffering from a catastrophic breakdown, how will you know when it’s time to leave aside AC repair in Akron, OH, and arrange for a new installation?

We can help!
