Repair or Replace | Air Conditioning Installation

Daniel Reichert - Thursday, April 28, 2016

When homeowner's experience the need for frequent repairs of a HVAC system, the question of when to repair or replace is often asked. The answer depends on the individual situation, with consideration given to factors such as the system's age, the frequency of maintenance, history of repair, and others. A Garland Heating and Air Conditioning professional is your best source for determining whether repair or replacement is the ideal solution. You can rely on the expertise, of Garland certified HVAC technician for heating and air conditioning installation, repair and service.


Routine maintenance is essential for the long-term performance and lifespan of the HVAC system. However, eventually age, wear and tear takes their toll, and heating and air conditioning installation of a new unit becomes necessary.

With a new installation, homeowner’s will receive the benefits a new unit provides with increased reliability, and potential energy savings, especially if an Energy Star system is selected.

Besides routine maintenance, an additional factor that can affect the lifespan of the heating and air conditioning system is the quality of air conditioning installation. There are a number of factors involved in determining the proper size system for your home or business. Often, less reputable HVAC installers will base the unit size on the square footage of your home. This single factor alone is not sufficient for proper sizing.

Problems occur in systems that are sized wrong. A system smaller than is required will be overworked and experience premature wear, resulting in a reduced lifespan. System’s that are oversized will short cycle, failing to properly excessive humidity during the cooling season, and potentially resulting in mold, discomfort due to excessive humidity, excessive energy use and premature wear. These are all reasons to insist on a qualified installer.

When Repair is Best

When a system is relatively new, that is in the first half of its expected life span, repair may be the best option. However, if the system is 10 years old or older and requiring frequent repairs, replacement is likely the best option. A system of this age will not provide the efficiency it once did, and a new heating and air conditioning installation will provide greater efficiency and higher performance.

The installation of a new system provides a convenient time to inspect the home’s energy performance. Attic insulation can settle, for example, reducing its insulating factor. As a rule, if you can see the rafters, insulation needs to be added. Furthermore, inspect the weather-stripping around doors, and caulking of the windows. Sealing all cracks, gaps, and air leaks will also assist you with energy conservation. In fact, energy upgrades may allow you to downsize the unit requirements, potentially saving you even more money on installation and the energy bills.

A Benjamin Franklin professional will provide a comprehensive inspection of your home’s existing HVAC system. Once the technician determines the condition, remaining lifespan, and current performance of the existing system, you will be in the position of being able to make an informed choice to repair or replace.

Thermostat | Air Conditioning Repair Plano, TX

Daniel Reichert - Monday, April 25, 2016

The thermostat is an often-overlooked component of a home's heating and air conditioning system. It can be considered the guidance system for your home's heating and cooling, as the thermostat is responsible for when the heating or air conditioning unit operates. Thermostats can experience wear like anything else, and may stop working completely. When this occurs, it typically requires replacement to enable the HVAC system to get back up and running. Garland Heating and Air Conditioning can provide the air conditioning repair in Plano, TX you need.


Signs that it may be time to replace a thermostat include the system running too long, taking too long to cut on, or a system not running at all. You may not need heating or air conditioning repair in Plano, TX after all; you may need a new thermostat.

Upgrading

Almost everyone is familiar with the little round or rectangular thermostats that utilize sliders or dials. For their time these were the only option available, but with today’s technology they are outdated and often inaccurate.

 

Upgrading to a basic digital thermostat will improve the system’s performance and efficiency, saving you money on the cost of energy. To save even more, a programmable thermostat will offer greater control, and enables you to access a greater variety of features, including integrating it into home automation depending on the model.

 

Programmable thermostats, which include smart thermostats, provide the ability to control when the system runs for multiple daily settings. It frees you from remembering to adjust the temperature when you leave home, return from home, and waiting for your home to reach a comfortable temperature. This thermostat will do it all for you, and more. This feature can result in significant energy savings, while extending the lifespan of your home’s heating and air conditioning system. When a thermostat operates properly, it eliminates unnecessary wear and tear, and the need for increased heating and air conditioning repair in Plano, TX.

 

While features and functions vary according to brand and model, examples include the ability to work with humidification and dehumidification systems, filter change alerts, service reminders, and the ability to integrate into home automation to name a few. In addition, the WIFI capability of smart thermostats provides the ability for remote changes. If you would like new thermostat installation, or need other heating and air conditioning repair in Plano, TX, give our NATE certified professionals a call.

Before selecting a thermostat, ensure it is compatible with the home’s heating and air conditioning.

Air Conditioning Repair Dallas

Daniel Reichert - Thursday, April 21, 2016

Spring has arrived and with the blooming flowers, flowering trees, and the resulting yellow pollen that coats everything in sight, comes the sneezing, sniffling, discomfort for those who suffer from allergies. There are steps you can take to provide relief from the full effect of allergies. One means of reducing your suffering (besides the allergy medications) is to maintain indoor air quality as much as possible during the allergy season, and schedule air conditioning repair in Dallas if needed. As the temperatures continue to warm up, the air conditioning unit will need to run more often. 


The following tips will assist those with allergies in reducing the factors in the home that can cause them to be worse:

·      Inspect the air filters and clean or replace them. Clean air-conditioning filters enable you to breathe cleaner indoor air.

HVAC professionals recommend replacing or cleaning the air conditioning filters at least every four weeks to improve indoor air quality. Routine filter changes assist in avoiding major problems, and reduce the need for air conditioning repair in Dallas.

If you are using a low-grade air filter, talk to your HVAC technician or the systems manufacturer about the ability to utilize a higher quality filter without damaging the HVAC system. The majority of AC systems will tolerate pleated filters, although it is best to be certain. The use of a filter denser than the system can tolerate can result in damage to the system, and the need for air conditioning repair in Dallas.

·     Close the windows and doors to reduce the amount of pollen inside the home.

·     Maintaining the proper humidity of 30% to 60% provides an essential factor in preventing dust mites, mold and mildew, which can aggravate allergies and cause respiratory illness.

·     Eliminate dust, dirty surfaces, pet dander, and dead plants by maintaining a clean home. Cleaning dust from surfaces and using a vacuum with a HEPA filter helps to eliminate indoor allergens. Do not forget to clean dusty drapes, and rugs. In addition, use products marked natural, and VOC free to avoid the use of chemicals in the home.

·     Vacuum air registers, and routinely clean the air return grill to prevent clogging.

·     Schedule annual HVAC maintenance and cleaning of the air conditioning system.

·     A HEPA air cleaner improves indoor air quality and reduces respiratory problems caused by dust, pollen, mold, and other air pollution. A whole house system treats the entire home and not just a single room. A certified Garland Heating and Air Conditioning professional can provide assistance in the selection of an air cleaner for your home.  

·     If you need air conditioning repair in Dallas, contact a Garland Heating and Air Conditioning NATE certified technician.

Garland Heating and Air Conditioning's certified HVAC technicians have the expertise to provide reliable air conditioning repair in Dallas, and expert installation and maintenance. If you are ready for cleaner air, call to schedule service, installation, or air conditioning repair in Dallas today. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
