Quality Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning

Although we can service and install every brand, not every brand is worth installing.  Some brands we try to steer clear of.  These brands produce poor quality products and back it up with even worse quality warranties.  Our company guarantee our labor for up to one year on everything we do whether its a faucet install, or a new air conditioning system.  We have learned our lessons with products that just don’t hold up and we take it to heart when something does not live up to its expected standards.  We will always offer advice based on our long learned experience.  Our advise is based on product longevity, serviceability and availability of parts.  After all customer satisfaction and our reputation is of most importance to us.

Air conditioning Refrigerant Freon leaks

In the last several posts we have been discussing different consequences of not changing air filters or not having them at all.  Some of the more severe consequences are frozen evaporator coils (inside/ air handler), which we have also discussed.  When ice expands so rapidly sometimes things move and or shift. That can create small cracks in the coil which eventually leads to bigger cracks.  Some systems have high and low pressure switches built into the condencers that would stop its operation if system is running outside of designed refrigerant parameters.  Some do not.  Those condensers tend to have burnt out compressors.  At that point that is a huge expense if wether parts are under warraty or not.  So again, please change your filters and make sure to do a diagnostic/ system check up at begining of each cooling season.  A skilled technician (ours) can spot issues before they occur and recommend best possible solution.

Leaking evaporaor coil. Not repairable

No filter in central air system

Last week I wrote an article about having a really dirty air filter and why it is a important to change them regularly.  In that article we discussed that dirty filters will restrict airflow in the air handler, which can cause serious malfunction in the system.  Now, lets talk about the repercussions of removing the air filter entirely and forgetting to put one back in .  The same effect as a dirty filter is recreated inside the evaporator coil. Dust gets lodged in between the coil fins, which forms into a giant patch and restricts air flow.  Side effects may include coil freezing and compressor burnout.  At the least it will require the coil to have specialized cleaning which may be expensive and in extreme situations the coil must be removed entirely for propper cleaning.  However, this can all be avoided if the air filter is replaced regularly.
