Thermostat Repair | AC Repair Dallas

Daniel Reichert - Friday, May 27, 2016

Thermostats will eventually wear out like any other item in the home. Signs that a thermostat may require repair or replacement include the system operating excessively, the failure to turn the system on, as the setting requires, the system running too long, or not operating at all, among others. When issues occur with your HVAC system, you may not need AC repair in Dallas, you may need thermostat repair or replacement.


Our home's and personalities are all unique. One thing the majority of people have in common is the desire to save money on our climbing energy bills. Whether you scrutinize every detail of the indoor climate, or simply want a product that takes care of it for you, there is a programmable thermostat for you. Carrier thermostats offer custom control features to fit your lifestyle and home.

Carrier thermostats offer Wi-Fi remote access, comfort management, energy saving intelligence, energy-use reports, thermostats for zoning, humidity control, and models are available for those who want accuracy, but simple operation, and more.

For those who not comfortable with technology, a basic digital thermostat will improve the system’s performance and energy efficiency. It does so with its greater accuracy in temperature control.

 

However, a programmable thermostat, offers greater control with a variety of energy saving features depending on the model you choose. The programmable thermostat is programmed according to your selections. Alternately, you may select a learning thermostat, which bases it’s self-programming on your choices over a specific time period. The learning thermostat is great for those who want the energy saving benefits of today's technology, without the initial investment in time for programming.

Programmable thermostats also free you from remembering to adjust the temperature as you leave and return home. The thermostat will do it for you, with multiple settings offered. The programmable can provide significant energy savings, and extend the lifespan of your home’s heating and air conditioning system by reducing unnecessary use. In addition, reduced use results in less wear and tear on the unit, and consequently potentially reducing the frequency of AC repair in Dallas.

Features vary according to model, providing a range of thermostats to accommodate every home.

Ductless Systems | Air Conditioning Installation

Daniel Reichert - Wednesday, May 25, 2016

There are a number of types HVAC systems available for installation. They include central AC, heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps, ductless systems, and others. With so many options to choose from, there is one right for your home and budget. One of the more recent HVAC systems with a rising popularity is the ductless system. When considering a ductless system, contact Garland Heating and Air Conditioning for additional information, and /or heating and air conditioning installation.


How It Works

As the name implies, the system doesn’t utilize central ducts for delivery of conditioned air. As with most systems, it is comprised of two parts, the evaporator, and the condenser. The evaporator is an indoor ceiling or wall-mounted component typically called the air-handling unit. The evaporator contains the evaporator coil, a fan, and the control system.

The second part of the system is the condenser, which is located outdoors. It consists of the condenser coil, the compressor, and a fan. The two components connect to each other via the refrigerant lines, and electrical cables supplying electricity to the outdoor condenser. A small hole is required to allow the passage of cables and pipes. 

Benefits

The ductless system offers a number of benefits, including:

·      Provides quiet operation

·      They are easier to install since they do not require ductwork, and require only a small hole for the passage of cables and refrigerant lines

·      Ductless systems offer an option for room additions, or homes where ductwork is lacking, and/or can’t be installed

·      Provides customized temperature from room to room or zone to zone

·      Offers an energy efficient option for those who want to cut energy costs

·      Provides an ideal solution for those with allergies utilizing HEPA filters for the highest indoor air quality, and lacking ducts which can distribute indoor pollutants

Each room or zone has its own thermostat, for setting the desired custom temperature for each area. The versatility of custom temperature control saves energy and money, by allowing you to heat or cool just the rooms’ necessary, without heating the entire home.

Energy lost through leaky ducts can account for more than 20% of a home’s energy consumption for heating and air conditioning. A ductless system eliminates the loss, providing an additional means of saving energy, and money.

Air Filter | Air Conditioning Repair Dallas

Daniel Reichert - Monday, May 23, 2016

Homeowner Maintenance - Air Filters

The majority of maintenance of the HVAC system requires an HVAC technician to provide it. However, your changing the air filter is essential for the system’s performance, efficiency, and lifespan. Furthermore, routine filter changes will avoid major issues from occurring, and will reduce the issues that can result in the need for air conditioning repair in Dallas.


Keeping Your HVAC System Healthy

You need only to look at the filter throughout the month to realize the amount of dust, lint and other debris that would have entered the system without a filter. If the filter isn’t changed, the debris will clog the filter and prevent air from flowing through the heating and air conditioning system.

Problems that can potentially damage the system can occur due to a clogged filter. When the filter is clogged, airflow through the system is reduced. This forces the system to work harder, causing unnecessary wear and tear on components. Furthermore, it may result in overheating and the potential for immediate damage, or even a potential house fire. Without routine changing of the filter, the need for air conditioning repair in Dallas is certain to occur as a result, and may even result in the need for a new system. The cost of a new filter each month is miniscule in comparison to a new heating and air conditioning installation.

For those who change the filter before damage may occur, but not during the recommended timeline, problems can still occur that will affect performance, efficiency and will eventually result in the need for air conditioning repair in Dallas. A prime example of this is the condenser coil. Located inside the home in a split system, the filter is located in the flow of air to capture debris before it reaches the condenser coil.

How effective the filter is depends on the type filter, and the frequency of its change. Assuming you are able to utilize a quality filter, once the filter is saturated with dirt this soil will be pulled around the filter and onto the condenser coil. A dirty coil prevents the system from performing effectively, and can result in issues requiring air conditioning repair in Dallas. Routine filter changes, and annual professional maintenance will prevent dirty coils from becoming a problem, ensuring peak performance, extending the system lifespan, and greater reliability.

An additional result of a dirty filter is reduced HVAC operating efficiency. The system’s efficiency translates into increased utility costs.

Furthermore, filter condition plays a significant role in indoor air quality. While the standard blue fiberglass filter is not going to provide any contribution to improving indoor air quality, the commonly used pleated filter, and HEPA filters, will improve the quality of indoor air. A dirty filter allows the captured particles to enter the home’s circulated air. Remember to allow time for washable filters to dry before reinserting to prevent mold and mildew. If mold or mildew occurs, replace the air filter immediately.

Air Filter Changes

The frequency of filter changes depends on the type of filter, the condition of your home in regards to the amount of dust present both indoors and out. Some filters require changing every month, such as the cheap fiberglass type. Others require changing every three months, such as pleated filters.

Generally, regardless of the type filter in the system, check it every month. Home containing pets may require frequent changes due to pet dander. During remodeling jobs, it isn’t a bad idea to check the filter daily if the system is in use. Extremely dusty conditions outdoors may require an increase in filter inspection and change.

Finally, before upgrading to a high efficiency filter, such as a HEPA, check with your HVAC technician or the system manufacturer for its approved use. The use of higher efficiency filters on some system may result in damage, and the need for air conditioning repair in Dallas.
