My AC’s Compressor Died—Does That Mean I Have to Replace the AC?

Monday, July 15th, 2024

The heart of a central AC is its compressor. This powerful motorized component places refrigerant under pressure so that it will circulate through the rest of the air conditioning system and change between a hot gas and a cold liquid to move heat out of the house.

Because the compressor is so powerful, it uses the most energy of any part of the AC. It’s also an expensive component to replace if it should burn out and fail. Conventional wisdom says that a dead compressor means the whole AC has to go to the recycling yard so a new AC can replace it. 

But conventional wisdom isn’t always 100% accurate. So let’s look further into the possibilities when you’ve got a dead compressor. Do you need a full central AC replacement in Stephens County in this case? Or is there another option?

It’s Not Too Late For AC Maintenance!

Monday, July 1st, 2024

We recommend our customers schedule professional AC maintenance every year. This is a light recommendation—it’s a major one! If you want an AC that is…

  • Effective
  • Energy efficient
  • Long-lived 

…then you need annual professional maintenance. That’s how beneficial this service is.

Does My AC Control Humidity As Well?

Monday, February 12th, 2024

Comfort in a home is about more than just the correct temperature. The correct humidity balance is also crucial. Air that’s too dry or air that’s too humid makes it more difficult for people to feel comfortable. High humidity is specifically a problem in hot weather since the moisture levels make it harder for the human body to release heat and naturally cool off.

You have an air conditioning system in your house to help lower the temperature during the heat. Does the AC also contribute to controlling the humidity? We’re going to look into this in greater detail and offer our recommendations for humidity control in Madison County.

Is Your AC Turning On and Off Too Rapidly? Here’s What’s Happening

Monday, July 3rd, 2023

You normally don’t think much about your air conditioning during the summer months once you’ve got it set. It turns on when you need it to, runs for a stretch, shuts down, and then turns back on whenever the house starts to get too warm again.

Except now, something different is happening … The AC is turning on and off far more often. It turns on, only runs for a short time, then shuts off, only to turn back on again a short time later. You’re always noticing the air conditioner turning on because it’s happening so often.

Is this a problem, and what exactly is causing it? Do you need to call us for AC repair in Franklin County? We’ll look into this problem (yes, it is a problem) more below.

Why Your AC Isn’t Getting the Whole House Cool

Monday, June 19th, 2023

This is a common problem that people run into with their air conditioning systems. The AC appears to be working normally, and there’s cool air coming out of it, but the whole house isn’t getting the amount of cooling it’s supposed to.

A good central AC is supposed to cool the entire house—it’s designed and sized for that purpose. If you got an AC that can’t evenly cool your home, there are several possibilities that may require replacing the air conditioner or, in most cases, calling our team for air conditioning repair in Hartwell, GA
