May 4th, 2015

Summer is on its way, and here in Palm Beach, FL, that means your air conditioning system needs to be ready to go. One of the most common problems that technicians experience with air conditioning systems is a loss of refrigerant. The chemicals required to facilitate the cooling process require specific amounts in order to work, determined by the exact model of your air conditioner. When those levels drop – usually through a leak or a loss in the system – it can create serious strain on the system, resulting in higher bills and a greater chance of a breakdown. A good maintenance or repair session can nip that problem in the bud, but how can you tell if those levels are low? Here’s how to determine if your air conditioning refrigerant is leaking.

Is a Heat Pump a Good Option for Cooling My Home?

April 6th, 2015

Recent years have seen a lot of advancements in the residential cooling industry. With this in mind, modern homeowners really must stop and carefully consider their next move when trying to determine how best too cool their homes. One option that the professional HVAC technicians at Envirotech Air Quality Services often recommend to our valued clients in the West Palm Beach, FL area is the heat pump. Heat pumps offer a number of unique benefits to homeowners seeking the ideal residential cooling system. Consider the information below, and contact a member of our staff with any further questions that you may have. If, after careful consideration, you decide that a heat pump is the right option for your home, know that you can count on us to install and service your heat pump with the greatest of care.

In terms of whole-house cooling, heat pumps operate much like a traditional split central air conditioning system. Heat is removed from the air in your home, and the cooled air is then redistributed throughout the house via a system of air ducts. Heat pumps are a bit more advanced in their operation, though, and are actually able to reverse their refrigerant cycle with the use of a component called the reversing valve. This is what really sets this type of air conditioning system apart.

In truth, calling a heat pump an air conditioning system is only half right. Reversing the refrigerant cycle means that a heat pump can actually use the ambient heat in the air outside in order to heat a home during the winter season. Not only is this incredibly convenient, allowing for year round comfort while using just one system, but it also allows you to heat your house with great efficiency. The heat in the air outside is the main source of heat, and only a small amount of electricity is used in order to facilitate the heat transfer process. Because our winters are relatively mild, a heat pump is actually a very appropriate heating system as well.

Heat pumps are a great option for any homeowner in this area to consider, but they are not for everyone; no HVAC system is. Weigh your options carefully, and remember to enlist the help of a trained professional to guarantee that you make your choice wisely. If you decide that a heat pump is ideal for your home, Envirotech Air Quality Services is here to help you get the very best performance that yours has to offer.

Ways You May Be Damaging Your AC System

April 2nd, 2015

No air conditioning system will last forever, so you can expect to have to make repairs at some point in time. But are your actions incidentally contributing to a fast decline? If you don’t follow a few simple steps to keep your AC in prime condition, your air conditioner may actually fail long before its expected lifespan is over. You may also find yourself in need of repairs frequently. Call Envirotech Air Quality Services for air conditioning repair in Lake Worth, and take a look at some of the ways you may actually add to your AC’s woes.

  • Leaving your air filter untouched. Most homeowners associate the air filter in their HVAC systems with improving the indoor air quality. It’s true that this filter eliminates some harmful contaminants, but it also keeps your air conditioner out of trouble, as long as it’s kept clean. A dirty filter is too clogged for air to pass through with ease, so your air conditioning system will struggle to suck in warm air from the home, leading to mechanical problems.
  • Waiting to call for repairs. When a minor cooling issue comes your way, you may feel that you have time to delay air conditioning service for a while longer. But if you wait too long to schedule repairs, the problem can only worsen; it won’t get better on its own. You may end up with a total breakdown on your hands before long, on a day that you need it the most.
  • Running it non-stop throughout the day. If you keep your air conditioner running at low temperatures throughout the day, you’ll only wear out your system sooner. For optimum efficiency and lifespan, keep the temperature as high as is comfortable in the warmer months, and program your thermostat so that the temperature is higher when you’re away.
  • Neglecting to schedule maintenance. We recommend scheduling professional maintenance each year to keep your system out of trouble and at peak performance. A professional tune up includes cleaning and adjustments which can also dramatically lower your bills.

Get in touch with an expert at Envirotech Air Quality Services as soon as you notice trouble with your air conditioner. Call us today for air conditioning repair, maintenance, and more in Lake Worth and the nearby areas.
