We run across many misunderstandings about air conditioning systems in our work. Some are harmless, but others can lead to homeowners developing bad habits using their ACs. We’re your local experts in all things air conditioning in Bossier City, LA and we’d like you to avoid mistakes with your AC, so we’ve listed several common misconceptions that can lead to trouble.
We’ve talked before about the problem of refrigerant leaking from an air conditioning system. We’ve also talked about why you don’t want to see ice forming on your AC. This post meets halfway between those two: we’re talking about leaks, and we’re talking about water. Refrigerant isn’t the only liquid that may leak from an air conditioner. You might see water leaking from your indoor AC cabinet. Why does this happen and is it a reason to call us for air conditioning repair in Shreveport, LA? We’ll answer those questions below.
Do you know that you may have a thief hiding in your house right now? A silent thief disguised in the walls and lurking in the attic. A thief who can steal money from you the whole season—each time you turn on your air conditioning system, in fact.
This thief is leaky air ducts, and it’s a common problem found in many homes. You don’t see most of the ductwork in your house, so it’s easy to miss trouble with ducts losing air at first or to misdiagnose what’s happening. The good news is that if you know how to identify the signs of this thief, you can get rid of him easily: just call our professionals to test your ducts and seal those leaks.
Air conditioning systems are marvelous devices. For centuries, people had methods to add heat to their homes but didn’t have a standard method to cool them down. Mechanical air conditioning was invented in the early 20th century but didn’t start to have a significant impact on homes until the 1950s. Now it’s hard for us to imagine making it through a summer without using the cooling power of ACs.
You may have wondered about the performance of your own air conditioning system. For example, how cool can an AC make a house? There must be an upper limit, but what is it? We’ll look at these questions in this post because this knowledge can help you understand how best to run your AC and set the thermostat.
Spring is the time of year when people arrange to have their air conditioning systems maintained so they’re ready to take on the rigors of the approaching summer season. But for some people, this spring is when they’ll need to send an aging, inefficient, and unreliable AC to the scrapyard and arrange for an air conditioning replacement in Bossier City, LA. If you’re in this situation, you can depend on our excellent technicians at Moon’s Air to help make the job as fast and smooth as possible.
Getting a new AC brings with it several important questions, all of which we’ll help you answer. We want to address one upfront because customers often ask about it: What do the efficiency ratings on air conditioners actually mean?
In our previous post, we addressed concerns about your heating system at the end of the winter season. Today, we’re switching topics entirely, because spring has officially arrived and it’s now time to think about warmer weather. And that means talking about your air conditioning system.
We rely heavily on our home air conditioning systems during the middle of the year, and you’ve certainly put plenty of “miles” on your AC (unless you just had a new one installed). All this wear can cause problems for any AC unless it has professional attention to inspect, adjust, clean, and generally tune it up before the major heat arrives. In other words, now is the best time to call our team at Moon’s Air for air conditioning maintenance in Haughton, LA, or elsewhere in the Shreveport Area.
With winter winding down, it’s a good time to think about how your heater is holding up. Running for months on end can put a strain on your system, but luckily, there are signs to help you diagnose any potential problems.
As you prepare to switch to air conditioning, now is the perfect time to check in with your HVAC system and see if your heating could use a professional’s care.
These are five signs that you may need to replace your heater. If you recognize any of them, scheduling a service call for heating replacement in Shreveport, LA can help you resolve the issue quickly.
Here’s a frustration you don’t want to run into during the winter: the outdoor temperature has dropped, you’re shivering and so is everyone else in your house, so you set the thermostat to turn the furnace on… and nothing happens. Maybe the blower fan for the HVAC system activates, but the air coming from the vents is at room temperature. Or maybe there’s no air coming from the vents at all.
What has caused your gas furnace to give up? There are several possible reasons. Some you can troubleshoot, others will require that you call us for furnace repair in Bossier City, LA. We’ll look at six potential causes for furnace failure in more detail below.
Have you changed the filter for your home’s heater so far this summer? Have you even thought about the filter?
Don’t worry if you answer “no” to either question—plenty of people forget about this routine task. Everyone gets busy, and some basic maintenance jobs can slip through the cracks. We wrote this post specifically to help you remember to change the filter and to keep up with regular changes in the future. It’s a basic part of heating maintenance and can spare you many troubles with your heater later on.
Heat pumps offer many great advantages to homeowners. But the best one, the one that made most people want to get a heat pump installed in the first place, is that heat pumps can work as both air conditioning and heating systems. All it takes to change a heat pump from one mode to the other is a thermostat adjustment.
Except when, for some reason, a heat pump doesn’t change mode. Heat pumps can run afoul of malfunctions, just like any other piece of HVAC equipment, and if your heat pump is trapped in cooling mode or it’s only sending out room temperature air, you’ll wonder if you need to call the Moon’s Air team for heating repair in Haughton, LA.
We’ll take a look at why you may have a heat pump in this predicament.
