How can I find air conditioner service near me?
Finding the right hvac technician to do your air conditioner service is quite essential. Our website contains a list of all the air conditioner service contractors that are located in your surrounding area. Go through profiles and read about the services they offer, and any sale or discount they may have listed. Fin the right technician for your air conditioning needs.

Routine maintenance such as changing filters can be handled by most consumers, but others require professional service.

It’s a good idea to brush dirt and obstructions from the coils and the drains at the start of each cooling season. Depending on the system and the consumer, this may require a service call from a professional as well.

If the system is not producing as much cold air as is normal, it could also be an indication of a refrigerant charge or airflow problems. These problems may require servicing. Hence, we always recommend that you hire a hvac professional to do the servicing on your air conditioner system. Sign up for a yearly plan and it will save you a lot of money on the long run.

Sealing leaky ducts may be the biggest single thing you can do to improve efficiency, but there are a lot of other stuff that could be done as well: replace dirty filters, keep the right charge and airflow, and clean the coils.

One more thing that you could work on is to make sure that your outdoor condenser is not getting blocked or being clogged by leaves and other materials.
If you are replacing the air conditioner, look to buy high efficiency equipment. The most generally known efficiency rating is Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER). SEER 14 is basically the minimum system you should consider, but higher efficiencies are likely to be quite cost effective.

Depending on the climate where you live, you may wish to consider other efficiency numbers as well. For example, if you live in a hot and dry climate, you should look at the Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) which says how well the system will work at peak conditions. If you live in a hot, humid climate you need to consider how well the unit can dehumidify.

The previous points have focused on cooling, but the original definition of air conditioning contains more than that; an ideal air conditioner should heat, cool, clean, ventilate, humidify and dehumidify as needed to provide health and comfort. In fact the second most important objective of the original definition is to provide ventilation. Whether or not the piece of equipment we call an air conditioner provides it, ventilation is needed.

Without adequate ventilation, contaminants generated indoors will can lead to significant health and comfort problems. Various manufacturers recommend that there be at least enough ventilation to exchange the air inside house once every four hours, depending on house design.

Older homes tend to have leakier walls and leakier ducts and mostly get sufficient ventilation through such leakage. Such leakage and infiltration may not be the most energy efficient approach to ventilation and is an opportunity for savings.

"Most new homes and some existing homes are relatively tight and thus require mechanical ventilation to meet minimum ventilation requirements."

How to service my air conditioner?
Before you go blasting the cool air from your A/C, make sure you've given your trusty appliance it's yearly check-up. Air conditioners require regular maintenance to work at their peak. If you follow our tips each year, you'll be staying cool and saving cash—in energy bills.

1. Change the filter.
Every air system should have their filters changed at least every few months. But if you've let the chore slide to the back of your mind, now's as good a time as any to replace the filter.

2. Check to see if you're blocking the condensing unit.
The part of your air conditioner that draws air into the system obviously needs to be uncovered. That means any fold-able patio chairs you've conveniently stored in your A/C closet for the winter need to come out. Also take the time to clean obvious obstructions like leaves from around the unit.

3. Check your Freon levels.
Your air conditioner isn't consuming Freon coolant, so under ideal conditions, the Freon would never need to be filled or changed. But you could have an HVAC tech check for a leak (especially with older models) or another irregularity as part of your annual A/C maintenance plan.

4. Clean the vents.
Again, a regular dusting several times a year is a must. But if you've been slacking, do it now. You could also consider having a professional give your air ducts and vents a thorough cleaning.

5. Check everything else.
If you're going to have a pro come in to check the Freon, also have them check that the electrical controls and coils are in top shape. A professional HVAC tech can also calibrate your thermostat.
