Things to Consider
There are several things you should consider before paying a high bill for air conditioning service, including whether you would end up saving more money with a new air conditioner. Newer units have more efficient motors and can eventually pay for themselves by lowering your monthly bill.
If you have an older air conditioner, it may cost more to repair than a newer one. If the bill is going to be several hundred dollars, and you don’t plan on moving anytime soon, a new system makes a lot of sense.
For environmentally minded customers, we recommend a newer unit that doesn’t use refrigerants that jeopardize the ozone layer. By switching to an Energy Star air conditioner, you could help protect the environment for future generations.
Installing a new air conditioner makes life easier. They are quieter, have a longer lifespan and usually come with a parts and labor warranty.
Blue Ox Air Conditioning Service
You can get a qualified HVAC technician to perform regular A/C maintenance to prevent problems from arising with your unit. The best time for A/C tune-ups is in the spring. Having regular maintenance saves you on energy costs by keeping your system running efficiently. It also can extend your air conditioner’s useful life.
Ask your technician about the Maintenance Club available through Blue Ox Heating & Air.
DIY AC Maintenance
Professional inspections of your air conditioning unit keep your air conditioner working properly. However, you can also help to maintain your system by following these tips:
Change the filter once a month. If you don’t change the filter frequently, particularly during the summer, air cannot efficiently flow through the unit. Conversely, a clean filter promotes better indoor air quality and keeps you’re AC running efficiently.
Keep the vents clear. Your AC unit draws in warm air, cools it and then distributes it throughout your home through the vents. Overtime, dust and dirt collect on the vents. Clean them off frequently to ensure proper airflow.
Brush dirt and debris off the condenser coil. This enables your A/C to continue producing cool air more efficiently. Use a vacuum, hose or brush to spruce up the condenser in the spring, just before you plan on using the AC for the first time. If you aren’t sure how to clean the unit, give us a call. A trained, experienced technician can show you how and ensure that you’re good to go for the year.
If your unit isn’t working as expected, it may be time to call for air conditioning service.
What if You Have a High-Velocity Air Conditioner?
Blue Ox Heating & Air technicians perform air conditioning service on all types of units, including high-velocity air conditioners. These units are good options if you live in an older home with no ductwork.
During installation, we put in place small, flexible tubes that deliver cool air without disturbing the structure of your home.
Zone Cooling System
Some homeowners satisfy their heating and cooling needs using zone heating and cooling systems. Our air conditioning service extends to zone systems that provide maximum comfort in your living space. You can control the temperature in different rooms or “zones” by changing the setting on the thermostat.
If you have hot spots in your home that you avoid in the summer, reclaim your space!
We also repair, install and replace mini-splits. These air conditioners solve summer cooling needs in homes with radiator heating and no ducts for airflow. Mini-splits also work well in apartment buildings and duplexes where installing ductwork would be problematic. Contact us for your ductless air conditioning service, installation and repair needs.
When Should You Replace Your AC?
Wondering when investment in air conditioning service just doesn’t make sense? If you have an older unit or notice any of the following symptoms, it’s time to sit down with one of our technicians to determine if you should invest in a new AC unit.
Signs that it’s time to replace your worn, outdated unit with a newer, more efficient model include:
- High energy bills
- Irregular cooling
- Humid indoor air
- Refrigerant leak
- Change in outdoor airflow
- Frozen evaporator coil
- Leaking ducts
