Is My AC Low on Refrigerant?

Monday, June 19th, 2017

technician-repairing-ACThe answer? Hopefully not. If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, then your system is simply not going to function properly. Considering just how hot our summer weather is here in this part of the country, an air conditioner that is not functioning properly can be a huge problem indeed. Plus, you must keep in mind the fact that your air conditioner does not actually consume refrigerant in its operation.

That means that an AC low on refrigerant either was not charged properly, or that it has developed a leak somewhere in the refrigerant lines. Whatever the case may be, you need a professional technician to diagnose the problem properly, and to resolve it completely. We’ll make sure that any refrigerant leaks in your system are pinpointed and repaired promptly.

Monday, March 27th, 2017

thermostat-going-redIn certain parts of the country, there is still snow on the ground (or even in the forecast!). In other parts of the country, signs of warmer weather are becoming more apparent, though the real hot temperatures are still a ways off. Here in Arizona, though, we’re already seeing temperatures in the upper 70’s, or even the mid to high 80’s!. Our air conditioning systems often get a much earlier start than those in other areas, which is exactly why it is so important that you have yours tuned up and ready for action sooner rather than later.

Now, routine air conditioning maintenance is definitely the best way to keep your AC up and running properly.

One issue that you may encounter is ice building up on your system.
