Dealing With a Hard Starting Air Conditioner

Monday, May 8th, 2023

There are several common problems that air conditioning systems may encounter as they start to get older (more than 8 years, which usually still puts them under warranty). One we often help our customers fix is hard starting. 

An air conditioner is hard starting when it has trouble getting the compressor to start up. The compressor uses a power motor to run—in fact, it’s the reason you see significantly higher electrical costs on your utility bills when you start using the AC. If this motor struggles to turn over and get going, it will cause problems for the entire air conditioner. If the compressor won’t run, there’s no cooling in the house.

If you have a hard starting AC, you’ll need to contact us for air conditioning repair in Roswell, GA. Ignoring the problem will only cause it to get worse and lead to a completely broken AC. A failed compressor in an older cooling system usually means the whole system must be replaced.

Monday, April 17th, 2023

Short-cycling is a common problem for air conditioning systems and heat pumps. An AC is said to be short-cycling if it is turning on and off rapidly, never fully completing a standard cooling cycle. This is damaging to an air conditioning system because of all the extra strain put on its components. It also drains larger amounts of power, leading to skyrocketing electric bills.

HVAC Tips For New Homeowners

Monday, August 8th, 2022

Being a new homeowner is an exciting time in anyone’s life! It can also be a really stressful time if you’re not adequately prepared. Whether you’ve moved into a home already equipped with central HVAC systems, or you’re having your own installed for the first time, we have some tips!

Monday, March 28th, 2022

A common question we get as a professional HVAC contractor is “what will my air conditioning installation cost?” We’d love to be able to answer this upfront and give you a cost you’ll feel satisfied with. The real answer is, though, “it depends!”

“What Type of Furnace Filter Do I Need?”

Monday, February 14th, 2022

There’s a fairly common misconception amongst Roswell area homeowners in regards to their HVAC air filters. Given their name, people assume that air filters do exactly as their name implies–filter the air. But there are different types of air filters, and the one that comes standard with your furnace installation isn’t there to protect your air, but rather to protect the furnace.

Now, there are different kinds of “air filters,” air filtration systems, and air purifiers with replaceable filters that are designed specifically to filter out your indoor air, making it cleaner and easier to breathe. But the furnace air filter works to keep debris such as dust, dirt, and more out of the furnace and off of the heating system’s sensitive components.

There are also different types of HVAC air filters, including fiberglass mesh, pleated, and even “permanent” air filters. Read on to learn more!
