Why You Shouldn’t Get an Oversized AC

Monday, June 29th, 2020

white-question-mark-on-blue-circle-on-white-backgroundNo, we aren’t talking about air conditioning systems that are the size of your home. When we talk about oversized air conditioners, we are discussing systems that are set up to produce too much cooling power for your home.

We want to ensure you are comfortable this summer and the sizing of your air conditioning system plays a huge role in this. Let us explain why having an oversized AC is just as detrimental to your comfort as an undersized one.

Is It Ever Okay to See Ice on an Air Conditioner?

Monday, September 10th, 2018

Frozen air conditioning with icicleThe short answer to this is “no,” but if the questioner part of you is wondering why, stick around! We’re going to explain.

To understand why this is a problem you first need to understand how your air conditioning in Royal Palm Beach, FL operates. You might already know that it is a refrigerant-based system and that it works similarly to your home’s refrigerator. Both these appliances utilize a chemical refrigerant to absorb heat from the inside and move that heat to the outside. This is why you notice the outside condenser unit blowing out heated air when the AC is operating.

But neither of these systems requires ice to function. We understand how this misconception occurs—after all, the cooling system is sending out chilled air—but this just isn’t the case. Transferring heat from one place to another using refrigerant just doesn’t require ice, and it shouldn’t produce it, either.

Don’t Let These Condensate Drain Problems Get You Down

Monday, November 28th, 2016

Your AC system has been working hard over recent months to keep you cool by utilizing a refrigerant cycle to remove the heat from the air within your home and exhaust it outdoors. This helps lower the temperature in your home, and also helps reduce humidity. When there is too much humidity in the air, your evaporator coil helps to control moisture levels, while the condensate tray and drain help evacuate that moisture from your home.
