How Do Professionals Determine the Right Air Conditioner Size?

Monday, August 8th, 2016

When it comes to having a new air conditioning system installed, your natural inclination is likely to purchase the most powerful system within your budget. Unfortunately, while this may make perfect sense for some types of appliances, this is the wrong thing to do with an AC system purchase. An air conditioner that is not appropriately installed—and appropriately sized by professionals—can run into many problems.

In fact, the majority of premature air conditioner failures are related to the way the unit was installed to begin with. It’s important when making this kind of purchase that you understand what our professionals do upon installation to meet proper building codes and to ensure that you have the space to accommodate the system of your choice.

Common Air Conditioning Repairs at the End of Summer

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

At the end of summer, you may be surprised if your air conditioner suddenly needs repair. However, your air conditioner runs for long periods of time all summer long, so a lot of air conditioners may run into trouble towards the end. Though you may be unsure whether your air conditioning repair need can wait until the next cooling season, it’s important to get problems fixed as soon as possible. Your air conditioner works hard to compensate when one component of your system is not working properly, and if you wait too long, other components may begin to fail, leading to the need for new air conditioning installation. If you encounter any repair needs, such as the common ones included in this guide, be sure to call for AC repair as soon as possible.

  • Frozen Evaporator Coil: Even in the heat of summer, your air conditioner can freeze up. The inside portion of your AC contains the evaporator coil, which allows refrigerant to evaporate and absorb heat from the air in your home. But if a problem causes reduced airflow to this coil, it may become too cold, causing an icy buildup to form on the outside of the coil.
  • Low Refrigerant: Another problem air conditioners may run into is low refrigerant. Refrigerant cycles through your home to absorb and release heat, but it should never dissipate. Refrigerant may be low if your technician measured it out incorrectly during installation. However, at the end of summer, low refrigerant may indicate a serious leak.
  • Damaged Compressor: The compressor is one of the most important components of your air conditioner. Refrigerant leaves the compressor as a high-pressure gas so that it can move through the rest of the system. Compressor damage may lead to the need for major repairs or even new air conditioning installation. Anytime you notice signs of problems, you should call for repairs right away. These signs include limited cooling and loud noises from the outdoor unit of your AC.

If you run into any of these repair needs, or if you decide you need a new air conditioning installation in Round Rock, TX, don’t wait until the end of summer to call the technicians at Roznovak.

Your Air Conditioning Installation Options in Austin, TX

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Has the time come to upgrade your AC? Are you having difficult figuring out what type of air conditioner would work best in your Austin, TX home? Would you like a blend of power and efficiency? When considering your air conditioning installation options for your home or workspace, it’s important that you hire a professional to assist you from the get-go. One of the most important steps in any AC installation is the system selection. Basically, you need to make certain that the BTU output of your cooling system matches your living space so that your system can operate the way it is intended. Additionally, you need to consider your budget and cooling preferences.

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular cooling options available: central air units, heat pumps and ductless air conditioners.

  • Central air units. It’s not without good reasons that central air units remain the most popular type of cooling system in the country. They are highly powerful, cost-effective and their efficiency continues to increase as the technology develops. The central air split is so-called because it has an indoor and outdoor unit as well as ductwork installed throughout your living space. Whether you’re looking for a powerhouse or you’re on a strict budget, a central air unit may be right for your home.
  • Heat pumps. You might be hard-pressed to differentiate a heat pump from a central air unit on looks alone. They have an indoor and outdoor unit, and they utilize the same refrigerant cycle that most cooling systems do. The one major difference between heat pumps and central air units is that the former can heat as well as cool your home. If energy efficiency is important to you, a heat pump makes for a great option.
  • Ductless air conditioning. As its name suggests, a ductless air conditioning system, also known as a ductless mini split, does not require ductwork in order to function. Instead of a centralized indoor air handler connected to a network of ducts, it uses multiple indoor air handlers installed within the living space itself. These blowers deliver cooling (as well as heating) to the various areas of your home.

Let us help you make a great decision when it comes to your AC installation. Call Roznovak’s Services today to schedule professional air conditioning installation in Austin, TX.
