Why Refrigerant Leaks Are a Major Concern

Monday, May 28th, 2018

AC-tools-on-topYour air conditioner does not somehow generate coolness, the way that your furnace or boiler generates heat via electric resistance or the combustion of fuel. Instead, that coolness that you are feeling is really the absence of heat. Your air conditioner removes heat from the air in order to cool it down before recirculating that air throughout your home. The refrigerant in your air conditioning system plays a vital role in this process and, without a proper refrigerant charge, your air conditioner will be in serious trouble.

Today we are going to discuss how refrigerant works in your air conditioning system, as well as some ways in which you can spot signs of trouble with your air conditioner that could be related to refrigerant leaks. The moment that you do, give us a call. Refrigerant leaks can, unfortunately, do very real damage to your AC in very short order. Prompt AC repairs in Cherry Hill, NJ are definitely in your best interest.

Catching air conditioning problems early on and having them resolved in a prompt manner is always in your best interest—not to mention that of your air conditioner.

So today, we are going to share with you some common signs that you are in need of air conditioning repairs in Cherry Hill, NJ. If and when you notice any of these warning signs in your home with your system, contact us right away. The last thing that you want is to invite serious problems into your home just because you had more pressing issues to deal with—or because you failed to recognize the warning signs at all!

service-timeWinter was pretty set on overstaying its welcome this year, but the warmer weather finally seems to be creeping toward us once more.

ductless-blowerOkay, so we are obviously not advising everyone to forgo the use of ductwork in their homes in order to maintain comfortable temperatures by distributing heated and cooled air throughout the living space.

Will You Need a New Air Conditioner This Year?

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

AC-topviewIf so, then now is the time to sort out the details. Sometimes, homeowners convince themselves that an old AC still has a year of quality performance left in it. Other times, they simply forget about the issues that they were having with their AC last cooling season, only to remember when faced with even more problems during the current season. We strongly recommend you avoid both of these scenarios. It’s always best to plan ahead when it comes to an air conditioning replacement.

Of course, we understand that you do not want to replace your air conditioner prematurely. If you do that, you are just wasting the money you invested in that system at the time of purchase. It may seem like a tough line to walk, but we have some tips for you that should help you to do so successfully. So be sure to keep the following in mind, and leave your air conditioning replacement in Cherry Hill, NJ to us.

Is a Heat Pump Right for Me?

Monday, February 19th, 2018

AC-with-moneyInvesting in a new heating and/or air conditioning system can be a bit overwhelming. There are the old standards, of course, such as the central air conditioner and the furnace.

Well, the heat pump offers one of the most innovative and versatile performances of any HVAC system, and using a heat pump in Cherry Hill, NJ can actually help you to live comfortably more efficiently.
