If you take good care of your home’s central air conditioner and regularly schedule maintenance for it, it should work with few problems for most of its service life. Repair problems can still crop up, however, and one we advise you to look out for is leaking refrigerant. This is a common issue with AC systems and also one of the most damaging.

An air conditioning system can run into several different types of malfunctions over its service life. One of the more common is called short-cycling, which is both a symptom and an underlying problem. If an AC begins to turn on and off rapidly over a short period of time (four times or more during an hour), then it’s short-cycling. If you notice this occurring with your air conditioner, please don’t shrug it off or hope it gets better. This is a major malfunction that can warn of several significant underlying problems that require professional air conditioning service in Damascus, MD.

If you know the basics of how central air conditioning systems work, then you understand that an AC doesn’t use water to cool the air. The AC in your house cools down the air using refrigerant, which absorbs heat along the indoor evaporator coil, then releases that heat outside through the outdoor condenser coil.
However, water is a part of the way your AC works, and it isn’t surprising to discover water leaking from the indoor unit. It’s not something you want to see happen, however! We’ll explain how water leaks can occur in an air conditioner so you’ll know when to call our technicians for air conditioning service in Clarksburg, MD.

This may be the spring when you have your old, inefficient, and unreliable air conditioning system sent to the recycling yard and a new one put in its place. We encourage making this change, and our technicians are the trustworthy experts who can see you get the best new system with the best possible installation.
One important consideration when you’re looking for a new AC is its efficiency ratings. These ratings give you an idea of how well an air conditioning system converts electrical power into cooling power. The efficiency of air conditioners is continually advancing, so even making the switch to a mid-efficiency AC will likely improve over your current one. Below we’re going to go over the basics of these efficiency ratings: what they mean and how to use them.

With that in mind, here is a closer look at how to tell if an older furnace is worth replacing.
