Frequently Asked Questions

AC USAGE

  • How often should I get my AC Serviced?
    Experts agree that AC units should be serviced every 3-4 months to maintain cleanliness and efficiency. Drainage lines and drip trays are constructive and need to be cleaned to avoid leakage. Electricity also needs to be checked and filters should be cleaned to ensure that the air is as clean as possible.   One of the great benefits of regular AC service is that it allows any potential problems to be downloaded in advance. This means that minor repairs can be made and parts can be replaced before a major problem occurs. During AC service the technician can also monitor…
  • How do I know how many AC units I have?
    You can easily calculate the number of AC units in your area by counting the number of thermostats. Each thermostat will control one AC unit.
  • Do I need to service AC units that I don’t use?
    There may be several units in your area, some of which are frequently used (like the kitchen) and others that are frequently used (perhaps the living room). However, it is recommended that all devices be serviced regularly, regardless of how often they are used. Without making it easy for you to track your AC service, dust and dirt can still linger in an unused area, and electrical failures can occur. We strongly recommend that you get them all at once, so that when you suddenly rely on them, they will be ready to use and working well.
  • If I am in an apartment, is the AC centralized or do I need to get my own system serviced and cleaned?
    In most cases, the AC units in your apartment must be serviced separately from each other in the building, and this may be your planning responsibility. You should also make sure that the pipes inside your apartment are cleaned regularly. If you're not sure, check with your building supplier to see if you need to schedule your own air conditioner maintenance.
  • How often should I change my filters? How do I know if my AC even has filters?
    Most filters do not require regular replacement, but do benefit from regular cleaning. Almost all air conditioning systems will have some sort of filter. These filters are essential for removing small particles from the air, keeping it safe and clean. Filter cleaning is part of a regular air conditioner tour.
  • Should I do anything to maintain my AC between servicing?
    No. Without reducing operating hours by automatically arming the system and locking rooms as needed, your system shouldn't require much attention. Regular maintenance is required, but should always be done by a professional as it involves potentially dangerous electrical work as well as roof and roof mounting.
  • How can I reduce energy costs from ongoing AC use?
    Without a doubt, AC performance is a big burden on your electricity bill. Unsurprisingly, if you use the system a bit, it will cost, but this may not be the case during the hot summer months.   Simple steps like insulating curtains can help keep the heat at bay and make it easier for your air conditioner to maintain a comfortable temperature. If you don't have to do much work, it will use less energy, reducing your electricity bills.   Smart thermostats that include climate control and eco modes will help ensure that your system is running as efficiently as…
  • Can air conditioning control humidity?
    Yes, by its very nature, an air conditioner removes moisture from the air. If you experience high levels of humidity in your home, one of the first things you should do is check if your air conditioning system is working properly. Poor air conditioning can be a major cause of high humidity. If the air conditioner is working properly and the humidity in the room is still high, you may need to check for other problems in your area. For example, you may have improper seals on your windows/doors, you may have cracks in your ceiling, or other load issues.
  • Is it better to leave your AC running or turn it on and off as needed?
    During the cooler months, only turning your AC on only when needed makes sense. However, during the summer months turning your AC off when you leave the house could raise humidity levels and make it more difficult to reduce the heat again when you are back. Smart thermostats that include climate control will help to automatically manage the system to ensure the AC is not wasting unnecessary energy but the humidity is still controlled. Make sure fans are set to “auto” so they shift to low or turn off completely once comfortable temperatures are reached. If you do not have…
  • Should I leave my AC on when I go on holiday?
    In the past, you may have been advised to leave your air conditioning systems on when you are away for long periods of time. This is because some people believed that it would reduce the damage that high humidity and humidity can do to the home, especially during the summer months.   However, we strongly recommend that you do not leave the air conditioning system on while on vacation. Since no one is inspecting your home, any problems that may arise may go undetected and you may find yourself returning home to a disaster zone. Clogged gutters, gas leaks, and…
  • How do I ensure my AC lasts as long as possible?
    If your air conditioning system is used excessively (long hours of operation), it may be necessary to replace the fast power components. A well-maintained unit ensures that you get the best health from your system. Regular maintenance means parts are replaced early and the system is clean and efficient, avoiding unnecessary stress on important parts of your air conditioning system that can lead to costly damage.
  • If we have multiple AC units, is it better to have them all on to cool the entire house or just in the rooms we are using?
    If you have large open spaces with multiple thermostats, it may be more efficient to have all the units running (but automatically set to adjust to the desired temperature) rather than forcing one unit to cool a larger area than it is designed to. Closed rooms can be used regularly, such as bedrooms that can only be opened when used.
  • What is the best temperature to have my AC on?
    The answer to this question really depends on what you like. Most people enjoy a temperature of about 21/22 degrees in the summer during the day, lowering it by a few degrees at night to help them sleep better. In the summer, setting the temperature 25/26 degrees outside the house will keep moisture out while reducing costs.
  • Is it a good idea to also get ceiling fans?
    Ceiling fans do not directly impact the efficiency of your AC system. However, they can make rooms feel more pleasant by providing a breeze. As such, having a ceiling fan may make you feel more comfortable at temperatures slightly higher, allowing you to set your AC general temperature higher. Remember, ultimately a ceiling fan is simply shifting the existing air around a room, rather than cooling the air.
  • What are the signs my AC isn’t working correctly?
    The most obvious sign that your AC is not working is that the air temperature in your area is not cool. If you feel warm air coming from holes or if you wake up sweating at night there is a good chance that something is wrong with your AC system. Strange sounds and noisy fans can also indicate that something is wrong with the system. In these cases you should always call a specialist so that he or she can diagnose the problem. Remember, it is not safe to play with AC systems. The combination of water and electricity can…
  • What should I check before calling for an AC repair?
    If you think your system is not working well it is best to get a trained professional to evaluate it properly. Keep in mind that some systems can take a while to start cooling a room especially if it is turned off for a long time. If you turn on your AC and it doesn't feel cool right away, leave it on for at least 5 minutes and check again. If you are still not satisfied, call our team.
  • How cold should my AC air feel?
    Depending on your settings, the airflow in your system should remain cool or neutral, neither hot nor hot. If your fan is set up but the room has reached a set temperature, you may find that the air from the system does not feel cool because it circulates the air inside the room.
  • How do I know it’s time for a new air conditioner?
    Well-maintained AC units can last a long time and regular servicing and replacement parts will often keep your system running smoothly and efficiently. Replacing a complete AC system is a costly task and can only be considered if the components are no longer available or your AC unit creates significant costs due to the normal component replacement.
  • Will a new AC system save me money?
    New AC systems may have updated features that may improve the efficiency of your AC use. For many people, however, the significant cost of completely replacing your AC system will far outweigh the benefits of these new features. If you keep your existing AC properly maintained with regular servicing and replacement parts as needed, there should be no need to upgrade your AC system.
  • Why do ducts need cleaning? How can I tell when they need cleaning?
    Air ducts are responsible for pumping air into each of your rooms. Over time, dust particles, dirt and harmful microorganisms begin to conquer their habitat. If your air conditioner is working to move that dirt and dust, put it back in your rooms.   If you see dust or mold, that's a serious sign that your ducts need cleaning! However, the pipes in your home are behind the walls, and you are unlikely to be able to tell for sure whether they need cleaning. If your pipes haven't been cleaned in over a year, you might think that dust and…
  • What are AC Coils? Why do they need cleaning?
    Your AC unit has a coil that is responsible for cooling the air pressure in the system. It is stored in your external system and is wet, which means it is able to collect dirt and mold that adheres to it.   Any dirt and mold that collects in your coil will eventually start to enter your system and affect your air quality. Any strange smell coming from your AC could be an indication that your coils need to be cleaned. Dirt on your coils can also affect the efficiency of your system and the impact of power consumption.  …

    If you have large open spaces with multiple thermostats, it may be more efficient to have all the units running (but automatically set to adjust to the desired temperature) rather than forcing one unit to cool a larger area than it is designed to. Closed rooms can be used regularly, such as bedrooms that can only be opened when used.
  • What is the best temperature to have my AC on?
    The answer to this question really depends on what you like. Most people enjoy a temperature of about 21/22 degrees in the summer during the day, lowering it by a few degrees at night to help them sleep better. In the summer, setting the temperature 25/26 degrees outside the house will keep moisture out while reducing costs.
  • Is it a good idea to also get ceiling fans?
    Ceiling fans do not directly impact the efficiency of your AC system. However, they can make rooms feel more pleasant by providing a breeze. As such, having a ceiling fan may make you feel more comfortable at temperatures slightly higher, allowing you to set your AC general temperature higher. Remember, ultimately a ceiling fan is simply shifting the existing air around a room, rather than cooling the air.
  • What are the signs my AC isn’t working correctly?
    The most obvious sign that your AC is not working is that the air temperature in your area is not cool. If you feel warm air coming from holes or if you wake up sweating at night there is a good chance that something is wrong with your AC system. Strange sounds and noisy fans can also indicate that something is wrong with the system. In these cases you should always call a specialist so that he or she can diagnose the problem. Remember, it is not safe to play with AC systems. The combination of water and electricity can…
  • What should I check before calling for an AC repair?
    If you think your system is not working well it is best to get a trained professional to evaluate it properly. Keep in mind that some systems can take a while to start cooling a room especially if it is turned off for a long time. If you turn on your AC and it doesn't feel cool right away, leave it on for at least 5 minutes and check again. If you are still not satisfied, call our team.
  • How cold should my AC air feel?
    Depending on your settings, the airflow in your system should remain cool or neutral, neither hot nor hot. If your fan is set up but the room has reached a set temperature, you may find that the air from the system does not feel cool because it circulates the air inside the room.
  • How do I know it’s time for a new air conditioner?
    Well-maintained AC units can last a long time and regular servicing and replacement parts will often keep your system running smoothly and efficiently. Replacing a complete AC system is a costly task and can only be considered if the components are no longer available or your AC unit creates significant costs due to the normal component replacement.
  • Will a new AC system save me money?
    New AC systems may have updated features that may improve the efficiency of your AC use. For many people, however, the significant cost of completely replacing your AC system will far outweigh the benefits of these new features. If you keep your existing AC properly maintained with regular servicing and replacement parts as needed, there should be no need to upgrade your AC system.
  • Why do ducts need cleaning? How can I tell when they need cleaning?
    Air ducts are responsible for pumping air into each of your rooms. Over time, dust particles, dirt and harmful microorganisms begin to conquer their habitat. If your air conditioner is working to move that dirt and dust, put it back in your rooms.   If you see dust or mold, that's a serious sign that your ducts need cleaning! However, the pipes in your home are behind the walls, and you are unlikely to be able to tell for sure whether they need cleaning. If your pipes haven't been cleaned in over a year, you might think that dust and…
  • What are AC Coils? Why do they need cleaning?
    Your AC unit has a coil that is responsible for cooling the air pressure in the system. It is stored in your external system and is wet, which means it is able to collect dirt and mold that adheres to it.   Any dirt and mold that collects in your coil will eventually start to enter your system and affect your air quality. Any strange smell coming from your AC could be an indication that your coils need to be cleaned. Dirt on your coils can also affect the efficiency of your system and the impact of power consumption.  …
