We can do it all, from cooling preventative maintenance to emergency service after an air conditioner breakdown.
Cooling equipment is pretty rugged. Most problems with air conditioners and heat pumps stem from faulty installation, poor service or lack of maintenance. Leaky ducts can also be a factor in poor performance. If the amount of refrigerant in the system (the "charge") does not match the manufacturer's specification, the equipment's performance and the efficiency will be affected.
Your furnace and air conditioner are the biggest energy users in your home. The key to ongoing efficient operation is routine preventative maintenance to help save money on HVAC repairs and replacement costs in the long run.
Well-maintained air conditioning equipment will also have fewer mechanical and electrical problems than equipment that hasn't been maintained very well. Our Energy Saving Service Plan is an example of a cost-effective way to keep the expert eye of an air conditioner repair specialist on your system so that any minor or developing problems will be spotted before they become major repairs.
Another big advantage of maintaining your air conditioning system is your comfort. A well-maintained air conditioner or heat pump that runs efficiently will deliver the best performance possible. A well-maintained air conditioning system can also help keep indoor air quality at healthy levels.
You have a part to play in keeping your air conditioner running in top condition. Change the filters and clean the air conditioning coils regularly. A dirty system can cause the compressor or fans to fail.
Our Energy Saving Service Plan has an option to include MERV 8 filters (designed to protect you from 70 to 85 percent of contaminant particles down to 3.0 microns) delivered at each semi-annual check up in Omaha and surrounding areas. We buy them in bulk, so this is a great deal!
When our professional team comes in to inspect and clean your cooling equipment, you can get the best value out of their visit by preparing a list of concerns and questions for them. Things that you notice may be indicators of system issues, like:
Sources of strange noises include the blower speed, insufficient lubrication, worn or damaged belts, or it might be that some duct hangers that have come loose.
A big issue with air conditioning equipment is refrigerant leaks. If there is a leak, or if the refrigerant was undercharged at installation, you'll experience poor cooling performance. Topping up the refrigerant is not a solution. You need a trained American Energy Advisor technician to inspect and repair any leaks, and then charge the system with the right amount of refrigerant.
