Air Conditioners need breathing room or they will break

 

rheem installation fort lauderdale fl

Like most people, your air conditioner’s outside unit needs its space—otherwise it cannot work properly. To know why, you need to know how a central air conditioner works.

Here is a brief overview:

Your central AC has an indoor unit and an outside unit. The inside unit absorbs heat from your home’s air and then transfers the heat to the outside unit, which then dumps the heat outside.

To disperse heat, the outside unit needs plenty of airflow, which is why your outside unit has a fan. (Think of it like when you blow on a spoonful of soup before you take a bite.)

However, a decorative air conditioner cover restricts airflow around the unit. Restricting airflow can cause the air conditioner’s compressor to overheat and die.

That is awful news for you.

The compressor is the metal “heart” of the outside unit. In addition, once it needs replacing, you might as well replace the entire outside unit. Yes, a compressor is that expensive to replace.

H2- why you need to clean the outside Air Conditioner unit twice a year

While you may not have a decorative Air conditioner cover, you may have other things that can cause the same problem, including:

  • A fence surrounding the outside unit (there needs to be a minimum of 2 ft of space between the unit and the fence)
  • Small tree branches
  • Dirt

All these restrict airflow and cause your AC to work inefficiently, meaning you have higher energy bills.

One common problem we would like to highlight here is dirt. The outside unit is always exposed to the outside elements, so the unit often gets covered in dirt, dust, grass and leaves.

That is why air conditioning manufacturers recommend an annual checkup. Get one from Aloha Ac Rheem® air conditioner contractor today now!

Call Aloha Ac Rheem® air conditioner contractor Today serves the air conditioning needs of Broward and the surrounding cities.

H2- This outside AC unit could use some cleaning

That is why you should clean the outside unit at least twice a year.

You can either clean it yourself using a special coil foaming cleaner and water sprayer (make sure you use a gentle setting).

Alternatively, you can have a professional do it. Most contractors will wash the outside unit as part of an Air conditioner maintenance visit. In South Florida, your Air conditioner needs maintenance at least twice a year because we use it so often.

Maintenance also helps prevent the AC from breaking down, which is a handy benefit if you want constantly cool air during our sizzling, wipe-your-sweaty-brow-every-5-seconds summers.

Spring is usually your best bet to get maintenance, because it is easier to schedule an appointment with a contractor.

Should I Replace or Repair My Air Conditioner Equipment?

new air conditioning installation fort lauderdale fl

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering, should I repair or replace my air conditioner? How long will my air conditioning last?
Those are questions everyone has pondered at some point. Now, I will answer all the important questions regarding air conditioning replacement vs. repairing the old unit.
There are a lot of good reasons to replace an air conditioner, but it should never be your only choice, as everything can be fixed. If old things couldn’t be retro-fitted or repaired there would be no antique cars on the road. And there are plenty of those, that being said it may not be a good idea to repair an old unit or there may be numerous other reasons that might make replacing the old ac system with a newer model. Newer model air conditioners have come a long way in technology, in ways of efficiency and comfort.

Good reasons to replace an air conditioner are:

1. If you are paying too much in power – Today a new air conditioner can lower a power bill by so much that in some cases, we can finance a new system for $80 a month and then we lower the power bill by $100 which is like saving $20 a month and getting a new system and warranty. If you are one of the ones paying too much in power than keeping your old system is a waste, it’s just math.

2. Your unit is 12 or more years old – Technology has come a long way in 12 years we can make your home 10 times more comfortable with stable temperatures using new 2 stage technology. And energy efficiency has doubled in 12 years.

3. You have a bad compressor and your system is over 8 years old – Compressors are very expensive and are the hearts of air conditioners. If your compressor fails consider replacement as some compressors are 50% the cost of a whole new system and the new system would have 5 or 10 years warranty vs. a 1 year warranty on a replacement compressor. And after a replacement compressor, the new one usually doesn’t last as long as the original because any blockage or other failing parts are already worn starting on day one of your new compressors life.

4. Your coil is rusted – If your coils start rusting and leaking, fixing a leak is only a Band-Aid as rust means another leak will occur guaranteed.

5. Your home has hot or cold rooms – If you have rooms that are always hotter or cooler than other rooms certain times a year, it may be caused by improper duct balancing or from an improperly sized air conditioner. Either way consider this when deciding whether to repair or replace?

6. If your air conditioner takes r-22 Freon you may want to consider replacement – The E.P.A. has deemed r-22 Freon deadly to the ozone. New systems are using r-410A which is ozone safe but also a new r-410A system will blow colder air for less electricity making it the green choice for many reasons. R-22 systems are coming more costly to repair due to the difficulty and price of obtaining r-22 after the government regulations.
I won’t make a list for why to keep your old unit because; if none of the reasons above apply to you then you should just fix or keep your old unit. But when faced with a decision to repair or replace you should simply know all the benefits of replacement and then decide if it makes sense to you at that time.

The benefits to a new air conditioner are:

A new air conditioner can lower the energy consumption by as much as 60% depending on your situation.

A variable speed system will circulate air through the entire home eliminating the need for fans and it will do it with only 80 watts of power.

A Variable speed system even out temperatures from room to room – imagine never having a hot spot, room or flash.

A new unit is quiet

New systems come with 10 year warranties

There you have it, replacing an air conditioner can benefit you by providing a more stable temperature in the home and lowering a power bill by 60% but if your air conditioner is already installed right and all your rooms are same temperature and your power bills are already low then you’re in good shape. But don’t forget to get a routine maintenance check-up because if your machine is ok now, we want to keep it that way.

Keep Your HVAC in Good Shape this Summer

Keep Your HVAC in Good Shape this Summer alohaac miami 07 01 2018 2

Your air conditioning system will be working overtime in the Florida heatwave this summer – follow Alohaac tips to ensure your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC) is working at its best:

1. Don’t let your HVAC work more than is necessary. And don’t let your office get too hot before turning it on. It’s key to regulate your temperature so as not to stress your unit. Keep doors and windows closed when your AC is turned on, and keep shades and curtains drawn on very hot days. Avoid having direct sunlight streaming in through doors and windows. As much as possible, don’t operate other heat-generating appliances in the daytime when your AC is going to be working.

2. Replace your air filters on a regular basis. Do this at least once every 3 months. Experts estimate that you can reduce your energy cost by as much as 10% by keeping up on this task. And the cleaner air will benefit your staff’s health as well. Air conditioning energy assessments are often undervalued!

3. Keep your thermostat constant. Changing your thermostat’s setting constantly can result in inefficiency. If you wish you can increase the temperature by a few degrees in the day time while you are away. When in cooling mode, switch on your AC fan to prevent hot or cold pockets from forming. This can also help prevent your condenser from icing up.

4. Keep your outside unit free of dust and dirt. Clear plants and other items from around its perimeter for at least 12-18 inches. Ensure also that indoor vents remain unobstructed to keep air circulation going for industrial air conditioning, this is so important.

5. Schedule regular tune-ups Have a reliable HVAC technician perform maintenance checks on your unit, preferably before the beginning of summer.

Our staff is fully trained in the HVAC techniques required to ensure this process is carried out efficiently. The result is that your air will be fresher, easier to breathe, and less likely to cause allergic reactions.
