My Unit Doesn’t Cycle Off … What’s Wrong?

Monday, August 17th, 2020

Air conditioners work in cycles. Did you know that?

Each time the compressor pushes refrigerant through the system, it creates cooled air in what’s known as an air conditioner cycle. This cycle keeps all the parts working in order and allows for stress to be distributed equally among all the parts so that it doesn’t run into any problems. The moment this cycle is disturbed or cut off, some components may take damage or a lot of force that they shouldn’t have to. Just like when you slam on the breaks in a car that’s driving, eventually your breaks will give out and the stopping stress will cause other compounding issues to take place. Treat your air conditioner like you would a muscle car in your garage.

Luckily, our HVAC service in Shreveport can help you get to the bottom of your cycling problem. Give us a call and keep reading!

Why Your AC Is Leaking Water

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

water-lineHave you ever stopped to listen to your home’s air conditioning system as it runs? We recommend doing this occasionally, since it can sometimes identify when there’s a malfunction in it (you don’t want to hear grinding or hissing noises, for example). One sound you’ll occasionally hear that isn’t an indication of a problem is dripping water. Your air conditioner doesn’t use water to cool down the air—only special evaporative coolers do that—but water is a byproduct of how it works.

And where there’s water, there can be water leaks. You might see water dripping from your air conditioner at some point. It usually means the air conditioner must be repaired. We’ll explain why.
