When to Replace an Air Conditioner

Monday, August 20th, 2018

AC-tools-on-top-of-unitWait a second, we’re nearly at the end of the summer season. Why the heck would I bother replacing my AC when things are hopefully going to be cooling down relatively soon? Well, doesn’t it make more sense to replace your air conditioner in Chesterfield, MO at the end of the season, rather than waiting until you really need a new air conditioner and trying to have it done then? We think so. Of course, that still leaves you with the question of when an air conditioning replacement is actually necessary.

Look, there is no set date that any air conditioner is going to just give up and quit on you. While AC systems will have an expected lifespan, this doesn’t mean that the system will stop working on the day it hits that point. It also doesn’t mean that the system will necessarily even last that long, unfortunately. So what’s a homeowner to do? Wait for the system to break down before replacing it? No way! Here are some tips to help you decide if an AC replacement is necessary.

There Is No Such Thing as a “Minor” Refrigerant Leak!

Monday, July 9th, 2018

question-markThere are plenty of times in life when one may be hesitant to recognize a problem, or when one may be quick to downplay just how important any given problem really is. If you own a home and use an air conditioning system to keep yourself and your family comfortable throughout our brutally hot and humid summer season, then you cannot afford to develop this type of mindset in regards to refrigerant leaks. Refrigerant leaks of any size are serious problems demanding prompt attention.

That being said, it begs a rather obvious question: how do you know if there even is a refrigerant leak in your system? It is not as if you are a professional HVAC technician—after all, if you were, you wouldn’t need us to tell you all this. Well, the “silver lining” here, though that may be testing the limits of the phrase, is that a refrigerant leak will typically give you some clear signs that something is wrong and that professional AC repairs in Chesterfield, MO are necessary.
