One of the best reasons to always schedule air conditioning maintenance in spring is because it will catch problems before the hot weather begins, giving you time to correct them. One of the biggest problems a technician may discover during an AC inspection is that the compressor has failed. If you didn’t know about this ahead of time, you would have turned your cooling system on during the first hot day and gotten … room-temperature air. No cooling at all! 

The compressor is one of the most important parts of an AC: it’s where most of the energy used to cool a house goes. The compressor is also an expensive component. It’s costly enough that when it fails, the conventional wisdom is that the whole air conditioning system needs to be replaced. Is this always the case? Let’s look at the options you’ll have when you’ve got a dead compressor

It’s time to think about your air conditioning system, even if you haven’t started to use it regularly. One crucial step to take during spring is to have a professional do a thorough maintenance inspection and tune-up so the AC is prepped to handle the heat. This is the standard annual procedure. 

But you may be in a situation where you have an aging air conditioner (10 years or older) and suspect that it’s starting to run down. The big question: should you have the air conditioner replaced before summer, or can you get by for several more years with repairs as needed?

Why an Oversized AC Is a Truly “Big” Problem

Monday, July 18th, 2022

In a recent post, we debunked several common myths about air conditioning systems. We didn’t have space for all the major misconceptions people have about ACs (there are plenty!), but we wanted to write a specific blog post about one we didn’t include because it deserves special attention. This is the myth that “There’s no such thing as an air conditioner that’s too powerful.” Or, in HVAC terms, “an oversized AC.”

When people are looking for a new air conditioning installation in Conyers, GA, they often fall into the mistaken belief that it’s better to err on the side of an AC that’s too powerful rather than one that’s not powerful enough. It’s easy to see why this is a common belief. If the AC provides too much cooling, you can just adjust the thermostat, right? 

However, the sizing of an air conditioning system for a house is complex, and both undersized and oversized ACs create problems. An undersized AC won’t be able to cool the house fully, and an oversized AC will … well, we’ll get into that below.

Air conditions have their own body of lore, much of it false. Although some of these misunderstandings are harmless, others can lead to poor operation and wasted money. Below, we’ll debunk several major AC myths we encounter far too often.
