    Choosing a Thermostat

    Last updated 5 days ago

    When it comes to maintaining a comfortable indoor environment, a thermostat is a necessary appliance. There are many different types of thermostats, and they come with different perks. Keep reading if you need help in choosing a thermostat.

    Heat only and cool only thermostats work for a single source of heat and one individual cooling source, respectively. Other thermostats are designed to control one source of heat and one source of cooling, while still others control multiple sources of each. A programmable thermostat is a nice investment because it can help you save money on your energy bills by providing a regular heating or cooling timetable. Thermostats may come with differently oriented faceplates including vertical, horizontal, or round, so you can always work them into the design of your home with ease.

    Examining Some Common Air Conditioning Problems

    Last updated 12 days ago

    Air conditioning problems can be frustrating, especially throughout the warmer months of the year. There are some problems that you can tackle on your own, while others will require the help of a professional HVAC service. Keep reading to take a look at some common air conditioning problems.

    Failure to Cool
    There are a multitude of reasons why your air conditioner may be failing to cool your space. The first thing to check is always your thermostat; make sure it is on and set to cool. If this is the case, your condenser may be the culprit. Make sure that it is clean and free from obstruction. Your condenser is especially prone to dirt and obstructions if it is located in an area of tall grass or weeds. If it is not obstructed, the problem may have to do with the compressor or the amount of refrigerant.

    Shutting Off
    Your air conditioner cannot be very effective if it is constantly turning itself off, which becomes a problem when the weather is warm. This is another problem that may be due to dirt and obstruction. Clean your entire condenser unit as well as the evaporator and see if the problem is alleviated.

    Calling Your Professional
    Most air conditioning problems that have to do with cleaning can be handled by the owner of the unit. However, there are a handful of problems that will require the assistance of a trained HVAC professional. Any problems with your compressor or refrigerant should be handled by a professional. If your air conditioner fails to cool your space or continuously shuts off and it does not appear to be related with the cleanliness of the system, call your HVAC service and have someone professionally troubleshoot your unit.

    Understanding SEER Ratings

    Last updated 1 month ago

    The higher quality air conditioner you have, the better prepared it is to cool your house sufficiently and inexpensively. A SEER rating describes this ability. Keep reading to gain a better understanding of SEER ratings.

    SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. A high SEER rating indicates that a particular air conditioning unit is able to do its job efficiently. This is advantageous in a number of ways. More efficient units require less energy than their less capable counterparts. This means that your energy bills will be lower and the environment will be less affected by the use of your appliance. Since units with higher SEER ratings are more efficient, they also tend to have longer working lives than those with lower SEER ratings. High efficiency systems may also come with incentives like rebates.

    Would you like additional help in understanding SEER ratings? Contact Estes Heating and Air Conditioning or visit our website for help. We are Atlanta’s home for air conditioner repair and replacement as well as other HVAC services. Feel free to call us at (404) 935-0170 if you would like to know more about our business.

    Last updated 1 month ago

    An air conditioner can be a lifesaver when it comes to beating the heat throughout the warmer months of the year. Watch this video to find out how you can improve the performance of your air conditioner and relax in comfort on those warm days.

    It is important to maintain your outdoor unit. Regularly clean it out and remove any debris or dirt that may impair its ability to cool your home. You should also change the filters on a regular basis; dirty filters can make it much more difficult for your air conditioning unit to do its job. Keep your thermostat on a low setting, and call your HVAC professional if the unit needs more refrigerant.

    If your air conditioner is not performing as well as it should, call Estes Heating and Air Conditioning at (404) 935-0170. We are happy to provide the Atlanta area with a variety of HVAC services. Please do not hesitate to visit our website for more information.
