There is a type of leak that you may encounter with your AC, and this leak is a big deal. That is a refrigerant leak. If you have a water leak on your hands, however, well—the problem is not what it seems. What’s that mean? A central air conditioning system does not use water in its operation, so it is really not possible that it is actively leaking water.
But I’ve seen the water surrounding my system! I swear! Okay, we’re not calling you a liar. Don’t worry. We believe you. We didn’t say that there’s no way that water is coming from your system. Just that it is not really a water leak in the traditional sense. Confused yet? Well, we’re about to clear everything up. Here’s what might be going on with your air conditioning in St. Charles, MO.

Chances are that you rely on your central AC throughout a good portion of the year. It can be oppressively hot and humid in our area, a subpar performance from our home cooling systems amounts to much more than a “minor” inconvenience. It only makes sense that you should be doing everything possible to ensure that your system functions precisely as intended. That simply cannot be the case if you do not keep a fresh air filter in your system.
Any true HVAC professional in St. Charles, MO, will tell you that routine AC maintenance is the key to a system’s success. That is entirely true. However, there is one vital maintenance step that you yourself must take. That is changing your air filter as needed, typically around once a month. That’s much more frequently than you’re scheduling maintenance, of course, hence the need to do it on your own. Today we’ll take a look at some of the issues that dirty filters cause.

The title of this blog poses a pretty complex question. There are a lot of different components in any given air conditioning system, electrical relays, capacitors, etc. When most homeowners ask this question, though, what they have in mind is how their air conditioners actually cool their homes. And to that question, there is a fairly simple air—through the use of the refrigerant cycle. By evaporating and condensing refrigerant, ACs are able to move heat from inside the home, out.
That’s a huge oversimplification of the process, of course, but it gets the major point across. Today we’ll be diving into the topic a bit further, discussing refrigerant, how your air conditioner uses it, and the very real risk of serious problems posed by a refrigerant leak. Just keep in mind that any air conditioning repairs, absolutely including refrigerant leaks, require professional attention. Don’t ever attempt to handle your AC repairs in Chesterfield, MO, on your own.

With the chill of winter behind us (mostly) for another year, all eyes are on the heat of summer. As alluring as that may sound, it’s important to keep in mind just how unpleasant our summer weather can be when you’re not able to get the respite you deserve.
