How an Air Conditioner works

How an Air Conditioner works Freon Boils at 35 degrees    Supply air is approximately 18 degrees cooler Central air conditioners have two separate components: the condenser and the evap­orator. The condenser unit is usually located outside the house on a concrete slab. The evaporator coil is mounted in the plenum or main duct junction above the furnace. Most central air conditioners are connected to a home’s forced-air distribution system. Thus, the same motor, blower, and ductwork used for heating are used to distribute cool air from the air conditioning system. When a central air conditioner is operating, hot air inside the house flows to the furnace through the return-air duct. The hot air is moved by the blower across the cooled evaporator coil in the plenum and is then delivered through ducts to cool the house. When the air conditioner works but the house doesn’t cool, the problem is probably in the distribution system. Both the evaporator and the condenser are sealed. Therefore, a HVAC professional should be called for almost any maintenance other than routine cleaning. Central air conditioners should be professionally inspected and adjusted before the beginning of every cooling season. However, don’t let your maintenance end with this annual checkup. While there aren’t many repairs you can make yourself, there are specific maintenance procedures you can follow to keep your system operating at peak... read more

Preparing for Summer Weather

Preparing for Summer Weather requires proper Air Conditioner maintenance Spring has arrived and so has the warm weather, so as temperatures of as high as the 80’s are expected for the rest of May and on to June, this means Birmingham residents should make sure their air conditioning systems are in top shape. Proper air conditioning maintenance is a must if you want an efficient system and avoid high energy bills. When problems do happen, do not fall into the trap of conducting DIY repairs if the case requires the knowhow of a Service Tech expert.  Service Tech Heating & Air Conditioning services all major brands and installs the best of the best brands with the highest ratings from consumer reports. Troubleshooting Certain problems may require only minor troubleshooting. For example, if your AC unit refuses to work, check the basics, like if the settings are correct, or if the system controls are in good working condition. The problem could be something as minor as a drained remote control battery. Some malfunctions are also simple enough to fix on your own, such as replacing a burnt-out fuse, or pushing the compressor motor’s reset button back in. Professional Repair When you have exhausted all simple troubleshooting measures, and your unit still refuses to function well, if at all, then it’s time to call in an AC professional.  The problem might be coming from a damaged electrical wiring or main power cord, which should be left in the hands of HVAC technicians. Problems with the AC compressor could also be the result of fluctuating voltage over a period of time. If this... read more

Air Conditioning Repair In Birmingham

Signs that You Need Air Conditioning Repair in Birmingham Your air conditioning unit should run as quietly as possible; however, if you’re beginning to hear a weird humming or rattling coming from your AC, then it’s high time to look into it or contact service companies that offer air conditioning repair in Birmingham as soon as possible. If left unchecked, the underlying causes of these noises might worsen the condition of your AC unit, and could even come to a point when it cannot be fixed anymore. In fact, some air conditioner problems can be determined simply by the kind of sound it makes. Richie Vines enumerated two main noises an air conditioning unit makes, which could be telltale signs of early problems and help you come up with a diagnosis. Rattling When your air conditioning unit makes a rattling noise, there could be two sources: it might be coming from the fan or from loose screws. In the case of your fan, it needs to be clean and properly maintained at all times, and when it begins to be the source of rattling or harsh humming, it simply needs a little clean-up if it has some debris around the blades. The fan might also be loose, thus the rattling, and it simply needs to be tightened. Moreover, be wary of bent blades, which might also be the cause of rattling sounds. With loose screws, on the other hand, simply determine which ones are problematic. The air conditioning unit usually vibrates when it starts working, causing some screws, especially the screws in panels and the mounting screws, to come loose. This... read more

What is a Reme Air Purifier?

Reme Air Purifier  Why The Reme Guardian Air Purifier Is The Best Air Purification System For Your Home Or Business Service Tech Heating & Air has installed and serviced many indoor air cleaners, electronic filters, HEPA filters and UV lamps in Birmingham area homes over the years. Some work well, some work OK, and some work…poorly.  Some are noisy, some are difficult to maintain, and some are just plain worthless.  After many years in the hvac field, my conclusion is that the Reme Guardian Air Purifier system is the best whole house air purification system on the market today. Did You Know? The average human takes 30,000 breaths and takes in more than 3,500 gallons of air each day. But is this air clean? Probably Not.  Indoor air is the most polluted air on the planet, and we are spending the majority of our time indoors. Unlike other systems that simply filter air, the Guardian Air REME+ (Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy) air purification system actually purifies indoor air with naturally-occurring oxidizers like ionized hydro-peroxides, Super Oxide Ions and ionized hydroxides. With this system, it’s as if your home or office were situated beside a fresh crystal clear flowing stream in the middle of a dense forest. The Guardian Air is today’s most advanced technology for boosting airborne oxidizers, and these oxidizers are crucial for our health. What are airborne oxidizers? Airborne oxidizers are naturally-occurring molecules that actively search out and destroy surface and airborne pathogens, and other environmental toxins. Sadly, these natural outdoor toxin-eliminating compounds are found in much lower concentrations or do not exist at all in indoor spaces.... read more

Regular Maintenance

An air conditioner’s filters, coils, and fins require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service. Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases. Check out our Energy Saver program for more ways to help improve your comfort and the efficiency of your air conditioner. AIR CONDITIONER FILTERS The most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to routinely replace or clean its filters. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency significantly. With normal airflow obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity. Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%. For central air conditioners, filters are generally located somewhere along the return duct’s length. Common filter locations are in walls, ceilings, furnaces, or in the air conditioner itself. Room air conditioners have a filter mounted in the grill that faces into the room. Some types of filters are reusable; others must be replaced. They are available in a variety of types and efficiencies. Clean or replace your air conditioning system’s filter or filters every month or two during the cooling season. Filters may need more frequent attention if the air conditioner is in constant use, is subjected to dusty conditions, or you have fur-bearing pets in the house. AIR CONDITIONER COILS The air conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser coil collect dirt over their months and years of service. A clean... read more
