Why Your AC Is Leaking Water

Monday, May 9th, 2022

water-dropletsYou probably know that if you see water leaking from your home’s water heater that it’s a major problem. But what about when water leaks from the air conditioner?

“Wait, my AC doesn’t run on water,” you might think. “Why would water start to leak from the cabinet?”

You’re correct that your air conditioner doesn’t use water to cool the air. (There’s a specific type of cooling system called an evaporative cooler that uses water, but we don’t see many of them where we live.) However, it does create water as part of how it operates, and it’s possible for problems with the air conditioner to lead to water leaking from the cabinet. Whatever the specific cause of the water leaking from your AC, it’s a problem that will require you to call us for air conditioning repair in Cherry Hill, NJ.

Monday, September 6th, 2021

Your air conditioning system is more important than you might think. Of course, many people install the system to help cool down the interior temperature. However, it does more than that.

As with all appliances and electronics, AC systems also get damaged from time to time. And this can lead to a wide range of issues. The good news is that there are often tell-tale signs of problems. If you are keen enough, you can easily forestall further damage and continue enjoying the benefits of your AC.

Why an Air Conditioner Can Be Too Powerful for a Home

Monday, June 7th, 2021

Good brand, pretty design, and the right color to match the interior – these are the primary features homeowners consider when buying a new air conditioner for their homes. However, the right capacity, which is often overlooked, is more vital for the efficiency of the system.

When it comes to choosing the right capacity or power of the AC, the common idea is to opt for a larger one. More capacity means better cooling – it is a general idea, but technically it is a flawed concept. Getting an AC with more capacity does not mean better or instant cooling; rather, an otherwise efficient, high-quality air conditioning system may fail to perform if installed in a space that is smaller for its capacity.

Yes, an air conditioner can be too powerful for a home, and while deciding the capacity, you should not opt for a larger one than necessary. At the same time, if you get an AC with less capacity than required, it will also impact the overall performance. So, getting the right AC size is vital.

Is a Spring AC Replacement in Your Near Future?

Monday, April 13th, 2020

Residential-Air-Conditioner Condensing-FanThe weather isn’t yet at a point where we can expect to turn on our air conditioning systems, and it may not be for more than a month before the whir of ACs is common in homes. But this is still a good time to make some plans for how you want the early summer to go this year. Replacing an aging and ineffective air conditioner is a big job and a major investment, so that makes it easy to put off until it’s absolutely necessary.

However, being proactive with your home’s HVAC system is always smart, since the “absolutely necessary” point of AC replacement usually means scrambling to get the work done, a period trapped without a working air conditioner, and poor AC performance in the time right before the Big Crash.
