Why is My Air Conditioner is Not Cooling?

Posted on: August 11th, 2017 by roxheating No Comments

If your air conditioner does not cool properly, there are four basic troubleshooting steps you can easily perform for yourself. First, check the thermostat settings, just to be sure it wasn’t accidentally switched to heat instead of A/C. While you’re looking, check the fan settings, too. When the fan is set to the “On” position, it will blow even when the A/C unit isn’t running. It can make you think something is wrong because sometimes it blows cold air, then it goes back to blowing warm air. Set the fan to “Auto” to make it come on only when the A/C kicks in. If you find the settings are correct, take the next step to find the problem.

Check the air filter. A dirty filter obstructs the flow of air that needs to flow over the evaporator coils. The unit draws in the warm air inside your house, but the air can’t get past the dirty filter to be cooled. Go to your fuse box and shut off the power to the A/C system for your personal safety. Remove the dirty filter and either clean it or replace it. If you don’t have a replacement filter, write down the size so you get the buy the right one. They come in lots of sizes and types, so taking a picture with your smartphone is also a good idea if you are new at this. Once you put in a clean filter and restore power, you should feel the difference immediately. If this is not the problem, you must do a more thorough check of the unit.

When the Freon, or other refrigerant, charge is low, the A/C can’t cool the air. If this is the case, there is a leak somewhere. The main signal that your unit has a leak is that the A/C cools the house just fine when the weather is cooler, such as night time or cooler days, but not on hot days. Another sign of low Freon is an ice buildup on the refrigerant coils and the outside unit. Also, with the power off, if you hear any hissing or bubbling sounds in the unit, that’s a leak. Leave the system off and call a professional service before you turn it back on. Trying to use the system like this will damage the compressor beyond repair. Lacking the signs of a leak, there’s another problem to consider.

Your air conditioner may be near the end of its operational lifespan and just cannot cool your house the way you’re used to it doing. Getting the system checked by a professional is important when your troubleshooting efforts do not solve the problem. You may need to have the system serviced, repaired, or even replaced when it can no longer do its job effectively.

What Is Air Conditioner SEER Rating?

Posted on: August 9th, 2017 by roxheating No Comments

A SEER Rating is a type of rating used to identify the efficiency of an air conditioner or heating unit. SEER stands for: Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The SEER rating refers directly to how efficient the unit is. Efficiency in this case referring to energy efficiency. In addition, knowing a unit’s EER rating is useful when deciding on a unit for purchase. EER stands for Energy Efficiency rating, and is very similar if not the same as the SEER rating. These ratings can be helpful when choosing a product, especially if you are looking for a unit that is going to be more energy efficient for your home.

When searching for an air conditioner or any sort of cooling or heating unit in your home, it is important to observe the SEER rating for each unit. For example, a unit with a low SEER rating will use up more energy in your home. While a unit with a higher SEER rating will use much less energy when compared to other objects. Considering how often we do use these units in our homes, a more energy efficient unit will lead to a lower electric bill, as well as being able to feel good about doing something with the environment in mind.

It goes without saying that installing a more energy efficient cooling or heating system in your home will be beneficial for all of those around you. With a more efficient system, your home will take less power to be heated or cooled, and this process will also take less time. If you choose to install a more efficient system in your home, you may also be compensated, depending on the utility company you are with. These specific companies are more than willing to pay in return for the installation of more efficient systems, so do take the time to research companies and installation options available in your area.

Opting for more energy efficient heating and cooling options can not only be beneficial for our environment, but also for your wallet. This is why it is very important to pay close attention to SEER rating of your system, as well as to ask about the energy efficiency rating of a system you may plan on purchasing. It is wise to opt for a system with a higher rating, as observing and researching this rating will keep you educated of what you are installing in your home, and but also make your home life easier.

Easy Energy Saving Tips

Posted on: April 15th, 2017 by roxheating No Comments

Want to lower your energy bills? Want to reduce your carbon footprint? Whether you are motivated by money or by the environment, you probably want to use less energy than you do now. The question then becomes — how?

First, sometimes we are using energy for absolutely no reason. A plugged up charger connected to a device that is already on full battery, for example, is continually emitting unneeded energy. That means that perhaps it isn’t the best use of energy to charge devices while you are asleep; the device will probably hit 100% long before you are awake. On the same note, a charger plugged in but not connected to anything is using energy for no reason too. Anything that has a standby mode, such as a cable box or an internet modem, is continually using energy when not in full activation too. Sometimes it might be prudent to unplug such devices, especially when they won’t be used for a few hours as when you’re going to bed or heading to work.

On a larger scale, heating and cooling our homes drains lots of energy and is an aspect to consider when lowering energy use. When would it be possible to turn off the heating/cooling system entirely? Use those perfect spring and fall days to your benefit. Open the windows and enjoy the cool breeze to avoid turning on the air conditioner, or leave the windows closed but turn the heat off once it has knocked off the morning chill. Even when the air conditioner or heating system is necessary, turning it down or up a few degrees can make a difference too. If it’s sweltering outside, dress lightly inside and turn the air conditioner to a lower setting. Set it to come on when it reaches 74 degrees inside rather than 70 degrees, for example. Cold outside? While you don’t need to don a parka inside, put on a sweatshirt and socks so that you can keep it a bit cooler inside, perhaps 67 degrees instead of 70. Whether you are heating or cooling your house, it’s not doing you any good when you’re not there. So, turn it down or up as appropriate when you are leaving for more than a few hours.

Finally, conserve the heat or cool in your house. When you open the door, heat or cool will billow out and make your system work harder. So, avoid propping the door open. Also, try to minimize how many times the door will open. Think of ways you can make your trips outside double duty. Walking the dog? Pick up the mail while you’re at it. Bringing in groceries? Carry four bags rather than two. Better yet, invest in a rolling carrier to bring in everything at once. Kids keep going in and out? Have them plan what they want to do and bring everything out at once — balls, bubbles, drinks, etc. Sometimes energy is wasted even when the door is closed, escaping through cracks. Check around doors and windows to make sure this isn’t happening in your home. These are just a few ways you can decrease your energy use. Enjoy your lower energy bills and the peace of mind that you’re doing your part for the environment!
