AC Blowing Warm Air

Daniel Reichert - Wednesday, August 24, 2016

There can be a number of potential causes for the AC blowing warm air. Some causes are a simple fix not requiring a call for repair. Others can only be repaired by a certified HVAC technician. Garland Heating and Air Conditioning is available for your HVAC needs, and provides emergency services 24/7 for your convenience.

Thermostat Settings

Almost everyone has turned the thermostat off, and the fan on manual at some time. Whether it is to help pull out the smoke of a burned meal, or just to bring fresh air in on a mild day, it is easy to forget it and numerous people do. The fan should be set at auto. When the fan is set to the “on” position, and the AC is off, the fan will blow warm air. Check the thermostat before calling your HVAC technician. In addition, check battery operated thermostats for a low battery warning, and change the battery if indicated.

 

Airflow Restriction

An airflow restriction can cause problems with the unit, including the shutdown or failure of the compressor, leading to the AC blowing warm air. The first thing to check is the air filter. An excessively dirty filter may be the cause of the AC blowing warm air.  

 

Dirty Coils

An additional cause for the AC blowing warm air can be dirty coils. By routinely changing the air filter you can delay this issue, and by scheduling annual maintenance you can potentially avoid it all together. In addition, when extreme dusty conditions prevail, check the filter more often. During remodeling, its best to cover the air registers and leave the system off if possible while work is actively occurring.

 

Refrigerant Leak

Refrigerant doesn’t get “used up”. If your AC is low on refrigerant it is either undercharged or has a leak. Either condition can result in damage to the AC system, and may be the cause of the AC blowing warm air. A refrigerant leak will require repair, and the system recharged with refrigerant.

Contact a Garland Heating and Air Conditioning certified professional for prompt repair.

 

Bad Compressor 

A bad compressor can cause the AC blowing warm air. Compressor failure is a typical reason why a new air conditioning installation is selected by homeowners. The compressor is a costly item to replace, and when installed on an aging system can create additional problems. Replacement is the ideal solution in all but fairly new systems.


Annual maintenance ensures your HVAC system of obtaining the longest possible lifespan, and greatest energy efficiency and performance. Furthermore, it reduces wear and tear, and often enables the technician to identify components with wear before a breakdown occurs. If your system is in need of maintenance, call now to schedule air conditioning service. Garland Heating & Air Conditioning technicians are NATE certified ensuring the best service and reliable repairs and installation.

Advanced Air Filtration | Heating and Air Conditioning

Daniel Reichert - Monday, August 22, 2016

Everyone wants to breathe cleaner air, and indoor air has a significant impact on our health. According to the EPA, the indoor air we breathe is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. This is due to modern homes being tightly insulated and sealed to provide greater energy efficiency. Garland Heating and Air Conditioning NATE certified professionals’ can provide clean indoor air without sacrificing the energy efficiency of the heating and air conditioning system. Advanced air filtration is one of the solutions we offer for healthier air.


A high quality electrostatic filter or a HEPA filter can improve your air quality significantly. The air circulating through your home passes through the air filter where contaminates are trapped and is redistributed throughout the entire home.

Electrostatic Filtration

Electrostatic filters are one type of advanced air filtration that is manufactured with charged material that attracts air particles with an opposite charge. This enables the filter to capture a much larger range and amount of particulates. Electrostatic filters also capture pollutants such as allergens, smoke, and bacteria.

Electrostatic filters, which use static electricity to draw pollutants, become less efficient as the filter becomes saturated with pollutants. For this reason, replace/clean them on a regular basis, ensuring higher efficiency for your filter, optimal performance for your heating and air conditioning system, and higher air quality for your home.

HEPA Filtration

Another highly efficient advanced air filtration is the HEPA filter. HEPA filters trap up to 99.97% of all airborne particulates as small as 0.3 microns. This includes a wide range of microscopic pollutants, including dust particles, dust mites, mold spores, tobacco smoke, pet dander, pollen, bacteria, and some viruses.

HEPA filters are commonly used in hospitals, labs, sickrooms, and fin homes. Like electrostatic filters, HEPA filters require routine replacement for the best performance, and the highest possible air quality.

High quality air filters provide cleaner air and the added benefit of maintaining a cleaner heating and air conditioning system. This in turn, reduces the need for heating and air conditioning repair in Dallas. Remember to check the air filter often, and replace as necessary. In addition, homeowner’s should recognize that not all HVAC systems are designed for the use of a HEPA filter. HEPA filtration is dense, and requires a system designed for it. Use of HEPA filtration in a system not designed for it may result in premature wear and tear on the system with the need for heating and air conditioning repair.

In addition to HEPA filters, we also offer UV air purifiers and air exchangers. When your goal is cleaner air, Garland Heating and Air Conditioning professionals will provide the clean air, and the quality you need.

Humidifiers 

Dehumidifiers and humidifiers are an additional means of improving indoor air quality. Excessive humidity can worsen the symptoms for those with asthma, allergies and other respiratory illness. A whole-house dehumidifier provides relief throughout the home. Dust mites, and mold thrive in high humidity. A dehumidifier can provide a relative humidity below 50%, depriving mold, dust mites and other contaminants of the environment they need.

On the other hand, during the winter additional humidification added to dry furnace air can be beneficial by increasing your comfort, while reducing your susceptibility to illness.

Lower humidity in the winter causes the nasal passages and skin to dry out, leaving you more vulnerable to respiratory illness such as colds and the flu, bloody noses, sore throats, static electricity, and dry, itchy skin.

Garland Heating and Air Conditioning NATE certified technicians provide heating and air conditioning solutions for homeowners and businesses with the highest quality services and industry expertise available. Advanced air filtration and air quality control are only a few of our wide range of heating and air conditioning services. Our technicians are ready to take your emergency call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our services are available in Dallas, Plano and the surrounding areas. Garland Heating and Air Conditioning is a member of the BBB with an A+ rating. We guarantee your satisfaction.

Programmable Thermostat | Heating and Air Conditioning

Daniel Reichert - Friday, August 19, 2016

The programmable thermostat can greatly improve your comfort and the energy efficiency of your home. Even the basic digital thermostat will provide energy savings on the cost of heating and air conditioning your home. A programmable thermostat is one means for saving money on the energy bill year round, and offers features a basic digital thermostat cannot. For example, a programmable thermostat can be programmed to fit your schedule. This means it automatically raises the temperature for the AC when no one is home, and lowers it prior to your arrival back home, enabling you to enter a comfortable home, rather than waiting for it to cool down. During the winter, it provides the same convenience with the furnace. The programmable thermostat offers greater temperature accuracy, and greater comfort while reducing wear and tear on the heating and air conditioning system.


There are a number of measures you can provide to improve energy efficiency, in addition to a programmable thermostat, including:

l  Seal cracks and gaps in the foundation and walls. 

l  Caulk windows and replace weather stripping 

l  Shut off lights in unoccupied rooms or install motion sensors for lighting

l  Reseal ducts

l  Add insulation

l  Install Energy Star appliances

l  Install a new high efficiency HVAC system

l  Routinely change the air filter as recommended

l  Provide annual or biannual HVAC maintenance

l  Install a ceiling fan

A programmable thermostat is one of the simplest means of saving energy. They are available with a variety of features, from programming a simple schedule to all the benefits and features of Smart thermostats and WI-FI technology. With a WI-FI enabled programmable thermostat you can control the climate inside your home. This is provided by remotely controlling the settings while you are away at work or on vacation with a SmartPhone, tablet or computer. 

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats offer the latest technology that allows you to remotely control the home’s temperature. With a WI-FI enabled Smart thermostat you can control the climate inside your home while you are away at work or on vacation with a SmartPhone, tablet or computer. 

While features vary between brands and models, Smart thermostats a number of benefits, such as models capable of integrating with security systems, electrical systems and even offer learning models that develop a program based on the personal preferences you select over a period of time.

Programmable thermostats eliminate wasted energy and provide a greater accuracy of temperature. In addition, a programmed schedule also reduces the wear and tear of unnecessary usage on the home’s heating and air conditioning.
