Central Air Conditioner –Installation, Repair, & Maintenance Services
Central air conditioners circulate cool air through a system of supply and return ducts. Supply ducts and registers (i.e., openings in the walls, floors or ceilings covered by grills) carry cooled air from the air conditioner through the home. This cooled air becomes warmer as it circulates, then it flows back to the central air conditioner through return ducts and registers.
Central Air Conditioning Installation
With central air conditioning, more than a single room is cooled. Many times, an entire home will be fitted with ductwork as part of a central air conditioning system. Although central air conditioners differ from model to model, they operate on similar principles.
Included in the components that make up a central air conditioning system is a condensing unit, which is located outside the home. The condensing unit contains the air conditioner’s condenser coils, and the compressor. The evaporator coils are located on top of a furnace or air handler inside the home. The furnace or air handler uses a circular blower fan to draw air through the return vent, blow it past the evaporator coils, and force the air through the home’s ductwork.
A central air conditioning system should be installed by a certified and experienced professional. Ask for a quote along with any information about warranties before you approve the installation. Central air conditioning prices can start from $5,000. Contact us for top quality air conditioning systems today.
Central Air Conditioning Repair, and Maintenance
Maintain your central air conditioning unit to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Keep your central air conditioning system at peak performance by having a contractor do annual pre-season check-ups. Contractors get busy once summer and winter come. So, it is probably best to check the cooling system in the spring and the heating system in the fall. To help you remember, it may be a good idea for you to plan the check-ups around the time changes in the spring and fall.
Central air conditioning maintenance should include the following:
- Ensure that your thermostat is set to keep you comfortable while you actually occupy your home and is set to save energy while you’re away.
- Make sure all your connections are secure. Loose electrical connectors can be fire hazard and can damage the equipment.
- There are many moving parts in an HVAC system. Ensure that they are all lubricated to avoid wear and damage.
- When your Air Conditioning system is in cooling mode, it is the ideal time to check the condensate drain. Ensure that it isn’t plugged and won’t cause backflow into the system.
- Ensure the systems starts, cycles and turns off in the correct fashion.
