It’s Never Too Late for This Important AC Service

Monday, September 9th, 2019

air-conditioner-with-tools-on-topOkay, so there is one scenario where it’s too late for this service—air conditioning maintenance, that is. If your air conditioner has completely broken down and the compressor is shot, then maintenance won’t do anything. In fact, you’ll probably have to replace the entire air conditioner. This is particularly true if its an aging system as replacing just the compressor, unfortunately, won’t help the rest of your air conditioner last much longer.

A sudden breakdown is a lot less likely to happen in a newer system, or a system that’s had maintenance done on it each year. This is essential—your air conditioning maintenance should be done on a routine basis, no matter the time of year. Sure, it’s most ideal to have maintenance done in the spring, before temperatures reach their hottest. But AC maintenance is definitely one of those areas where frequency means more than timing.

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Female holding a remote control air conditioner at home. Happy young woman on sofaWe’re all too aware that the weather in our area never really gets “cold.” We use our air conditioners on a pretty consistent basis, and given the cost of running these systems, it’s important that we have reliable and efficiently performing cooling systems. Is yours up to the task of getting you through the rest of spring and then our sweltering summer?

If not, it may be time for air conditioning service in Tampa, whether that be system repair or, in the case of an aging or inefficiently operating AC system, replacement.

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!

Our Most Common Air Conditioning Service Calls

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

Here at Ierna’s Heating & Cooling, we know how much you rely on your air conditioning during the long hot summer. With a professional installation and regular maintenance, you can usually steer clear of many problems during the service lifespan of your cooling system. But, eventually there will come a time when you need professional AC repair services. In this post, we’d like to review some of our most common Land O’ Lakes air conditioning service calls. Call Ierna’s Heating & Cooling for superior AC services throughout the Tampa Bay area! We’re always here to help!

  • Land O Lakes Air Conditioning Service It’s hot and my AC won’t turn on: We hear this more than you might think. First, check your circuit panel to make sure you haven’t simply blown a fuse or tripped the circuit breaker. Next, check your thermostat to make sure that it’s definitely turned on and calling for cool air. If neither of these steps works, then there may be an electrical connectivity issue in your AC unit. Alternatively, your capacitor may have failed.
  • My AC makes this weird hissing sound: If it sounds a bit like air is escaping through a small hole, then that’s probably what it is! At a certain stage during the refrigerant cycle, the refrigerant is in a gaseous state. During this phase, if you have even a microscopic puncture in your coils or copper lineset, then you may hear a hissing sound. That is the sound of refrigerant leaking out of your AC unit. It’s not only bad for the environment, but it will also decrease your energy efficiency and significantly reduce your cooling performance over time.
  • I want more control of my AC: If you’re sick of the one-temperature solution of central air, but are otherwise pleased with the performance of your unit, then consider installing a zone control system. Electronically controlled dampers are inserted directly into your existing ductwork so that you can control the temperatures of different zones of your home differently. It’s a great way to add versatility and boost energy efficiency.

These are just a few of the most common Land O’ Lake air conditioning service calls. Call Ierna’s Heating & Cooling for AC service today!
