Home Air Conditioner Crystal Lake

Having the right sized air conditioner for your home is essential. Most people will think bigger is better, but that is not the case. An oversized air conditioner cools quickly, which is what most homeowners would like, and the air conditioner does not run as much, which is a double win right? Wrong, this is a drawback as I’ll explain later. A different problem with occur if you have an air conditioner that is to small for your home, the air conditioner runs for a prolonged period of time putting more strain than your air conditioner is designed to handle. Make sure the air conditioner for your home is the right size and working properly by having a professional HVAC technician install and maintain your air conditioner Crystal Lake.

Air Conditioning Installation Crystal Lake

Proper Installation is critical for your air conditioner to work properly. If a line is not sealed correctly, bent in the wrong way, or components are not adequately secured, it can cause your air conditioner not to work or even break down. A leak will cause the coolant to leak from the system and can be expensive to repair. Often the easiest way to fix the hole is to add a sealant to the coolant, but that can cause build up on the inside of your system, but can sometimes be the only solution. Applying an outside seal is the best solution, but requires a lot of work to complete. A bent pipe or improperly installed components means having to re-install them so that they work if they had not become damaged from before. The biggest risk of improper installation is when the components break. Those will have to be replaced and sometimes when one part fails, it can damage others as well increasing the cost of the repair, where proper air conditioner installation would have been cheaper in the long run.

Air Conditioners Crystal Lake

Modern air conditioners were invented in 1902 by Willis Carrier, sound familiar? Even though cooling technology had existed long before 1902, it was in that year that what we see today was created. Air conditioners remove heat from the air by changing the pressure inside a tube to turn a coolant from a liquid to a gas thereby absorbing heat from the surrounding air. The gas then moves to a condenser where it releases the heat and turns back into a liquid where it can be brought back inside where it can absorb more heat. Earlier I mentioned that it is important that your air conditioner run for a specific amount of time, well that is because the components of your air conditioner are designed to operate for a particular length of time and frequency of time. When your air conditioner runs for less time, that means the number of times you home heats up and cools off is more frequent than a home that has the right size. Starting up puts more strain on some components than longer running time, causing excessive wear. The same goes for an air conditioner that is too small. It will run longer putting excess strain on the motor and other components of your air conditioning system.

Humidity Removal Crystal Lake

An added bonus of an air conditioner is that it can remove excess humidity from your home. It does this by collecting moisture during the internal evaporation process that turns the coolant into gas. The evaporation process causes the moisture in the air to condense on the pipe where this process is occurring, the condensed moisture then travels into a drain to be removed from the home. This helps improve the overall air quality of your home and can help improve your mood. No one likes to be in the humid air where it feels like your swimming in water while trying to relax and watch TV, read a book, or use a computer.
