Your air conditioner has one job: to keep your home comfortable when outside temperatures heat up. If your AC had a professional installation that ensured its cooling capacity matches your home, it should be able to handle even the hottest summer days and provide the level of cooling you want.

But what if it doesn’t? An air conditioner can completely fail, but it may also start to lose cooling capacity and not provide the cooling you expect from it. If you find that you’re lowering the AC temperature more and more to get comfortable, something isn’t right, and you may need professional AC repair in White Bluff, TN. Below we’ll look at the most common reasons for an AC that can’t keep up.

Why Cost-Cutting on HVAC Services Can Cost You More

Monday, July 12th, 2021

There’s a difference between “saving money” and “cheap,” but people often tangle up the two. They see a low price for an HVAC service, like an air conditioner repair, and assume that means they’ll save money. But “cheap” often means something is cheap all-around: shoddily done and temporary at best. That kind of cheap HVAC service is the opposite of saving money because it means more troubles in the future—often the near future—with poor system performance, additional repair problems, and even an early system failure.

When you invest in HVAC services in Dickson, TN with our professionals, you’ll receive great work and lasting results, and that means saving money as well. Below we’ll go into more detail about why choosing our professionals is better and less expensive than to try cost-cutting with DIY or amateur service.

Why Refrigerant Leaks Are Bad News for Your AC

Monday, June 21st, 2021

People often misunderstand the role of refrigerant inside an air conditioning system. It’s common for homeowners to think their AC will eventually “run out” of refrigerant and need to be refilled or topped-off. This isn’t the case, since refrigerant is not an energy source or fuel for an AC. The energy source for an AC is electricity. What refrigerant does is allow the air conditioner to carry out heat transfer, i.e. moving heat from inside the house to the outside. Heat transfer is how an air conditioner provides cooling for a home, and it can’t do that without refrigerant. 

Because refrigerant isn’t an energy source the AC consumes, it doesn’t get “used up.” The amount of refrigerant in the air conditioner when it’s installed (known as the AC’s charge) is the same amount it will keep through its service life. The only case where an air conditioning system may lose its refrigerant charge is because of leaks. Unfortunately, these are a common AC problem and require professional AC repair in Ashland City, TN or else the air conditioner will be in major trouble. Below we’ll go into why refrigerant leaks are bad news for any air conditioner.
