Should My AC Be Starting and Stopping So Frequently?

Monday, August 5th, 2019

woman-with-fanIf your air conditioner is starting and stopping frequently enough that you’re asking yourself this question, then the answer is probably no. Now, you have to keep in mind the fact that your air conditioner should not be running constantly, either. ACs are designed to run in cycles, meaning that they should adjust temperatures, shut down, then start back up in relatively even and regular intervals. An AC that is running constantly is no better off than one that starts and stops very frequently.

When it comes to your air conditioning in O’Fallon, MO, you have to keep in mind that “good enough” is never really good enough when it comes to its performance! Truth be told, short cycling may not be indicative of a very serious air conditioning problem. At least, it may not start out that way. However, short cycling may also be caused by a very serious issue, and itself will damage the system if left alone long enough.

Why Is a Refrigerant Leak a Big Deal?

Monday, June 10th, 2019

AC-manifoldAir conditioning systems are complex pieces of machinery, and modern engineering has really done wonders for their capabilities. The basic concepts and theory behind the air conditioning process, however, is actually quite simple. The air conditioner removes heat from your home, and it continues to do so until it reaches the desired temperature. It accomplishes this through the evaporation and condensing of refrigerant. That’s an incredibly simple explanation of how the process works, but it’s really the foundational aspects.

Considering that we just pointed to the evaporation and condensing of refrigerant as the process that allows your air conditioner to, well, condition air, it should be pretty obvious just how vital to the process refrigerant is. It should also come as no surprise to hear that a refrigerant leak is really cause for major concern. So read on, learn more about how that AC of yours works, and remember to contact a member of our team if you think that it’s time for professional air conditioning repair in O’Fallon, MO.
