Monday, April 20th, 2015

Most homeowners in our area are very familiar with the fact that summer bills can be quite high. Running an air conditioner is costly, as your air conditioning system has a lot of parts that require electricity to operate. And if you have an older air conditioning system, it can use up even more energy because the parts are often worn down and outdated. If you’re worried about the cost of monthly cooling this summer, check out some of our tips for improving the efficiency of your unit.

Now Is the Time for Air Conditioning Maintenance

Monday, April 6th, 2015

An air conditioning system certainly will not wait until the weather is ideal before breaking down. In fact, in many cases, air conditioning units are most likely to break down on the hottest of days. Air conditioning systems run into trouble when the parts become overworked, which is a definite possibility if your unit has dirty, loose, or broken parts which are forced to run at full capacity on a hot day. Regular air conditioning maintenance helps to prevent AC failure, so you have peace of mind running your unit throughout the year.

The steps of maintenance

A maintenance visit involves a comprehensive inspection of the most important components of your HVAC system, a thorough cleaning of some of the parts, and some minor adjustments (though major repairs may need to be scheduled for a later date).

  • Inspection – After a thorough inspection, a technician will let you know whether anything needs immediate repair, so that you’re not inconvenienced by a sudden breakdown later down the road.
  • Cleaning – Cleaning the components of an air conditioning system can help to improve efficiency and prevent repairs. For example, a dirty coil may inhibit heat exchange, which can force the mechanical components to become overworked, but professionals know to clean these with every maintenance visit.
  • Adjustment – Some of the components need a quick adjustment before your air conditioning technician leaves. This may include tightening electrical connections, straightening bent coils, and screwing in loose parts.

The important of annual service

If you don’t schedule annual air conditioning maintenance service before the heating season is in full swing, you may find yourself with a number of problems on your hands. For one, you’re likely spending far more on monthly energy costs than is necessary. Furthermore, maintenance can extend the life of your unit and prevent the need for repairs over the year.

Don’t wait any longer to prepare your air conditioner for the hotter weather ahead. Call Air Conditioning Experts, Inc. for air conditioning maintenance in the Atlanta, GA area, and ask about enrolling in our Comfort Club maintenance program.

Tips for Efficient Air Conditioning in Atlanta

Monday, May 6th, 2013

Homeowners throughout the Atlanta area are always looking for tips to make their home cooling more efficient. While we cannot control the cost of electricity, we can control how much electricity we use. For efficient air conditioning in Atlanta, call Air Conditioning Experts today!

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your AC this summer:

  • Enroll in a maintenance program: It makes sense to let a pro worry about the details of your AC. A maintenance program gives them the opportunity to thoroughly inspect, clean and tune-up your system biannually, so that your heating and cooling systems are fully taken care of. The Comfort Club Membership also includes a 15% discount on parts and labor. Prevention is the best path towards efficient air conditioning, especially considering how much use your Atlanta AC gets during the long cooling season.
  • Clean and replace your air filter: During peak cooling times, you need to change your air filter at least once a month. Not only will this improve your indoor air quality, but it will also allow uninhibited airflow between your air handler and your living space. A clean air filter goes a long way to improving system performance and energy efficiency.
  • Clean and clear: If any vegetation has begun encroaching on your outdoor unit, spring’s great time to clear a space around it so that it can adequately dissipate the heat pulled from the interior of your home. Even the most minor obstruction can cause your system to work harder and reduce efficiency. Speak to a professional for more advice about what you should and should not attempt to clean.

For more information, talk to your local AC tech. For Atlanta air conditioning services, call Air Conditioning Experts today!

Why Tune Up Your Home’s Air Conditioner Before Summer?

Monday, March 18th, 2013

Even if you love the sunshine and heat of summer, there are times when you just need to cool down and relax. That is why a professional air conditioning installation is so important. Only with a high-quality installation will your air conditioner be able to provide you with the consistent, dependable cooling power you need to beat the heat this summer. If you have not scheduled preventive AC maintenance yet, though, you are putting your comfort and condition of your air conditioning system in Atlanta at risk. Call Air Conditioning Experts today to schedule professional AC maintenance.

You may think that it makes more sense to have your air conditioner serviced after the close of the cooling season. This is simply not the case. While your air conditioner will likely suffer some general wear and tear during the summer, it is really necessary to schedule service prior to the regular use of your air conditioner.

Following the previous cooling season your AC has month after month of sitting and waiting in store for it. You cannot expect it to kick right into high gear after that amount of time. Any issues that developed during use last cooling season will still be there at the start of this one. Just because your air conditioner was running at the end of the summer does not mean it was doing so efficiently.

Scheduling maintenance before summer starts gives your professional maintenance technician the chance to discover and resolve any problems before you really need to depend on your AC. This helps prevent any disruption to your air conditioning service – and comfort – when it is put into heavy rotation. Operating a compromised air conditioning system puts your AC at risk for damage and also leads to higher energy use. The more energy you use, the more you are going to pay in cooling costs.

Contact Air Conditioning Experts today for more information about the importance of scheduling preventive air conditioning tune-ups in Atlanta. Trust us; it is the best way to protect your comfort and the condition of your air conditioner. Do not wind up spending more money for less cooling power. Schedule the services your air conditioner needs today.
