FAQ: What Does “Tonnage” Mean for an Air Conditioner?

Monday, July 10th, 2017

condensers-on-risersThe HVAC field, like any other technical field, has a language and jargon all its own. For example, we divide the year into two seasons, heating season and cooling season. Except they mean the opposite of what they sound like. Heating season is the time of year when it’s cold, and cooling season is when it’s hot.

This is a simple example. There are plenty other terms that are even more confusing to people who don’t work in HVAC for a living. One of them is the tonnage of an air conditioner. No, it’s not how much the air conditioner weighs! It’s a measure of something much more important. (more…)

Monday, July 13th, 2015

The installation of a central air conditioning system, whether as part of a new home or as a replacement for an older and inefficient system, should always be left to HVAC professionals. One of the reasons for this is that it is difficult—if not impossible—for an amateur to know the right type of AC to put in for a home. Each house has different cooling requirements, as does each family. It takes a skilled technician to determine the right size of air conditioner for your home. (more…)

Why Your Air Conditioning Installation Matters

Monday, April 7th, 2014

There are a lot of air conditioners on the market, but there is one fact that applies to all makes and models: they must be professionally installed if you hope for your air conditioner to operate as efficiently and reliably as possible. It does not matter how handy you may be or if you watched a few online tutorials: a successful air conditioning installation in Corpus Christi, TX can only be completed by a professional, experienced technician. There is no way to get around this. By dialing our number and scheduling your air conditioning installation with a member of our team you can enjoy the best performance that your air conditioning system, whatever type it may be, has to offer.

A primary reason why it is so important to work with a professional air conditioning installation technician is the simple fact that determining which air conditioner is right for you can be quite difficult. Central air conditioning systems are probably the most common method of residential cooling. However, many people may choose instead to use ductless air conditioning systems. Even if your home can accommodate ductwork, the elimination of the need for air ducts also eliminates the risk of energy through leaky or improperly sealed ducts. Heat pumps are another option to consider, able to cool your home in the summer and to use ambient heat from outside to warm it back up in the winter months. Choosing the cooling system best suited to your needs is every bit as important as ensuring that the system you choose is well made and reliable.

Another reason that you must schedule your air conditioning installation in Corpus Christi, TX is the fact that only a qualified professional can determine just what size your air conditioner should be. If it is too small, after all, it will struggle to cool your home effectively. This will result in a subpar performance even as you pay more than you should to run your AC too frequently. An oversized system is no better, as it will short cycle frequently and can lead to unnecessary wear and tear or damages to your system.
