Heating and Cooling Terms
We know that not everybody is an HVAC expert. Many people don’t know what makes your air conditioning function. That’s ok too and a reason to call us. If we are replacing your ac you will probably hear our technicians talk about all of these below.
Air Handler — A device used to regulate and circulate air as part of the HVAC system. An air handler is usually a large metal box containing a blower, heating or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, sound attenuators, and dampers.
Compressor — In a central air conditioning system, the compressor (and the condenser) is located in the box outside your home and compresses the refrigerant to initiate the cooling process.
Evaporator Coil — the part of the air conditioning system that actually pulls heat out of your home’s air by allowing the refrigerant to evaporate, which extracts heat from the surrounding air, lowering the air temperature.
Refrigerant — A substance found in the evaporator coils. The refrigerant moves from gas to liquid to exchange heat to produce a cooling effect.
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) — SEER is a standardized measurement for the overall operating efficiency of an air conditioning system. The higher the system’s SEER rating, the more efficient it is at converting energy into air cooling.
AC Repair or Replace
Sometimes when we show up for a heating and cooling repair and we find more than a couple of problems. If there are several major issues with your system we will look at its age. If your system is more than 10 years old we will probably recommend an AC replacement. Especially if the major repairs are close to 50% of the replacement cost anyways. We know that to replace the AC System can be pricey, it’s always worth the investment in the long run.
If your ac is at the end of its lifespan, you’ll realize it (you just might not want to) There are a lot of parts in an AC system. Minor repairs like replacing belts, a coil, and resizing a duct, are only a few things to get your system running again. You still have a lot of major components in your system that could fail soon.
The easiest way to gauge if you should repair or replace is the cost of the repair. If the repair is going to be anywhere near 50% of replacement cost, we will recommend getting the new system. There are several advantages to owning a new AC system. There are tax credits, manufacturer’s rebates, and energy efficiency savings. Unfortunately, if your system uses R22 refrigerant you will have to replace and upgrade your system. In 2020 R22 is being phased out and will no longer be available.
