While we’re lucky in the South Bay area in that we typically have very moderate weather, there are still days during the summer where the sun can make it uncomfortably hot outside. When that happens, you want to make sure your cooling system is up to the task. At Carter Services, we provide air conditioning repair and maintenance and air conditioning installation and replacement to keep you feeling great inside no matter how hot it may get outside.
AC Repair or Replacement?
One of the hardest decisions you can make when it comes to your cooling system is deciding whether you should have an AC repair performed or you should simply replace the entire system. When you call Carter Services, we will send an expert technician to your home to provide whatever kinds of air conditioning services you need. We will be completely forthcoming as to whether you’d be better off with a repair or replacement; we won’t try to sell you something that you don’t need. At the same time, however, if a replacement, we will provide you with an efficient installation that will once again have you feeling cool and comfortable.
It is very important that you have a professional help make sure you get the correct size of air conditioning system for your home. If, for example, your system is too small, it will have to work too hard in order to make you comfortable. This will not only result in higher energy bills each month, it will also reduce the lifespan of the system. On the other hand, though, if your new system is too large, it won’t do a good enough job of dehumidifying your indoor air. As a result, your home will constantly feel clammy.
It is very important that you have your air conditioner checked once a year to make sure it is working properly. This is particularly vital if you have an older system – just like you wouldn’t drive your car 40,000 miles without getting an oil change, you shouldn’t run your AC unit for 15 years or more without having it checked. If you neglect your cooling system, you may be looking at a very expensive AC repair down the road.
As part of our air conditioning repair services, we perform a 36-point checklist to make sure your system is working properly from top to bottom. Here are just some of the checks we perform:
Checking for loose or corroded wiring connections
Checking for any refrigerant leaks
Making sure all components are clear of debris
Cleaning or replacing the air filter if necessary
Clean the condensate drain pan
Clean the surface of the evaporator coil if it is accessible
Check for proper compressor amperage draw
Look at the expansion valve/metering device and bulb
Check all blower motor circuit boards
Check the condition of the evaporator coil fins
Flush the outdoor condenser unit
