Temp Guys – Your Local HVAC Experts!

There are a lot of components that make up the central air conditioning unit, and in order to troubleshoot what is wrong with your air conditioner, you need to understand a wide variety of components that make up the system including refrigeration, electricity, electrical components, electric mechanical controls and AC(air conditioning) components. Since the system can be complex it is probably better to have a trained HVAC specialist look at and diagnose the unit rather than attempt repairs yourself, but you should also be familiar enough with your ac unit so you understand how to maintain it.


Five Common Causes of Air Conditioning Repair Calls

heating system First, let us say we have been installing furnaces since 1989 with next to NO repair problems. This includes the 92% versions. We ran a new house HVAC business for 10 years installing not only the furnace, air conditioner or heat pump but all the ductwork, wiring, in other words, a complete turnkey installation. We did this on between 150 - 200 new homes a year for this 10 year period. The size of the flue pipes ( diameter ) runs between 2" and 3". The size of the furnace and the length of the runs of pipe, as well as the number of elbows, will dictate which diameter of the pipe is needed. Here again, if the installer AND the estimator don't understand this, you can count on problems! In other words, if 3" pipe will be needed SOMEONE has to be sure there is enough clearance to allow for installation AND the 1/4" pitch.

Knowing When It Is Time for AC Repairs

heat air ventilation and cooling Of all the money you pay to the energy providers, heating and cooling systems make up the majority. HVAC repair prices have risen in the past few years due to expensive tools, increase in fuel prices, labor costs, and a rise in transportation costs. But you can still save on air-conditioning repair by following these steps. Invest In a Pro's Advice When buying an air-conditioner, don't pick what commercials glamorize. Invest wisely and do your homework before going out to the market. There are several types of efficient air-conditioners in the markets. The first type saves energy and the second one saves repair costs. Both types differ on behalf of the number of parts and complexity. Brands that offer drastic savings on energy generally use a significant number of parts which can potentially fail. Improvise Home/Office DesignTry some other ways to reduce the indoor temperature of the building. For example use curtains, window treatments or window film to prevent direct sunlight from entering the building. Tall trees surrounding the building would also reduce the temperature along with detoxifying the air. Improvised building design will let you run the air conditioner at a lower temperature and reduced run time, putting less wear on your HVAC system as well as saving you money.
