Signs You Should Consider AC Replacement in Tampa

Friday, February 27th, 2015

As we head out of winter toward spring, now is the ideal time to assess whether or not your current AC system in Tampa needs replacement. There are a number of factors to review when considering the replacement of your existing air conditioner, and of course, you can always (and should) seek the assistance of an Ierna’s Heating & Cooling expert to help you determine whether or not it’s time to install a new AC. What are some factors to consider? Here are a few examples:

  • Your current air conditioner uses R-22 refrigerant (Freon) – as you may very well know, R-22 refrigerant, better known by its brand name Freon, is being permanently phased out. In fact, Freon will no longer be produced at all by 2020, even for repairs. As such, if your current AC uses Freon, you will have to replace your system in the imminent future anyway. Why wait until the last minute? Get ahead of the crowd and help lower your repair costs by scheduling replacement now.
  • Your AC is more than ten years old – there are two reasons why the decade mark is important for an air conditioner: first, the average lifespan of a traditional air conditioner is 10-12 years, and second, the federal laws regarding SEER ratings were updated in 2006, which can mean you are operating a system that is not very energy efficient. High age and low energy efficiency can have a negative impact on your overall AC costs, so it is worthwhile to see how a replacement system can help improve your AC costs.
  • You have dealt with, or are facing, multiple repairs – reliability is a need with any whole-home system. If your AC has become unreliable and as a result, has needed multiple repairs or needs multiple repairs to keep running, you money may be better spent on a reliable, new system.

Replacing an existing AC system is a big undertaking, and the air conditioning professionals of Ierna’s Heating & Cooling are here to help you with every step of the process. Call us today and schedule an appointment for AC system replacement for your Tampa home!

Air Conditioning Repair Tip: Signs your Ductless AC Needs Repair

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

During the hot summer months, problems with the performance of your air conditioning system can seriously disrupt your comfort. That is why you should always contact a skilled professional to schedule any necessary air conditioning repair in Wesley Chapel at the first sign of trouble. The sooner you have your air conditioning system repaired, the less likely serious issues with your AC are to develop.

Here are a few tips to help you recognize the need for ductless mini split air conditioning repair:

One of the great benefits of ductless mini split systems is that they are able to cool your home very efficiently. There is no ductwork used, as individual, wall mounted blowers handle the distribution of cooled air directly. If you notice that your ductless mini split air conditioning system costs more and more to operate, there may be a problem with the system requiring professional air conditioning repair. It is possible that there is a refrigerant leak in your system, that a fan is not operating properly, or that some electrical component is malfunctioning. Whatever the cause of your efficiency loss, it is always best to have the situation evaluated and resolved as soon as possible.

Another sign that your ductless mini splits may be in trouble is the development of unfamiliar sounds and odors during their operation. While these issues may not seem terribly serious, they are often indicative of more serious problems with the system developing. Remember, even the most serious problems with your air conditioning system are unlikely to spring up overnight. It is much more likely that they are the result of operating a compromised system, giving the problem the opportunity necessary to become more severe. That is why routine ductless mini split maintenance is such a good idea.

To learn more about the signs that your ductless mini split system is in need of repair, give Ierna’s Heating & Cooling a call. We are happy to answer any questions you may have. When it comes to air conditioning repair in Wesley Chapel, you can always count on our technicians for truly outstanding service.
