It depends on how old and effective your current air conditioner is. The main consideration is the cost of repairing an old air conditioner to buying a new one.

Newer AC units may also help you save on your energy bill so cost is the biggest consideration. Our technicians will give you an estimate on the cost of repairing and replacing an air conditioner in your home.

There are many reasons why your air conditioner might not be turning on. It can be due to a blown fuse, your air filter might be dirty, registers and vents may be blocked, and many more.

If each room in your home is being cooled unevenly, then you should make the following considerations. Checking your air filter for dirt may be the cause of uneven cooling in your home. Another reason for uneven cooling can be due to dirty air vents or problems in the ductwork. Try to keep your vents clean and clear to reduce pollutants and keep your AC functioning properly. Another reason for uneven cooling is insufficient insulation in your attic. Inadequate insulation may cause lower floors to have uneven cooling.

There are 3 main types of air conditioners. Packaged air conditioners, split systems, and ductless air conditioners.

Your air conditioner size is important when it comes to the cooling efficiency of your home. A small air conditioner will struggle to cool your home on hot Summer days while a large air conditioner will cycle on and off wasting power and raising your energy bill.

You can start saving money on your energy bills by installing a smart thermostat to control your air conditioner. This can help you cool your home before you arrive and manage your power bill. Another way to save money is to install a ceiling fan. Ceiling fans can move air and make you feel cooler without lowering the temperature of the room. You should also periodically check your air conditioner’s filters for dirt and keep them clean.

A new central air conditioner is a big investment and to ensure you are making the right choice you should check your unique needs. You should look for an air conditioner that is more energy-efficient, is the right size, has a good warranty, and is not too loud. Contact Lee Collins Air conditioning to learn what type of air conditioner is best for you.

To maintain your air conditioner for years to come, you should regularly clean your filters and fins of your air conditioner. You should also clean your condensation drain to keep your air conditioner functioning efficiently.

Depending on your air conditioner, you should service your air conditioner at least once a year and inspect it quarterly. If you don’t know how to inspect your air conditioner, contact the team at Lee Collins Air Conditioning.

Yes. Your air conditioner can keep the air in your home between 40 to 60 percent humidity which can prevent mold airborne illnesses.

Keep leaves and debris away from your central air conditioner so it doesn’t get clogged or blocked. You should also make sure grills and vents in your home are not blocked so air pressure doesn’t build up and cause failure in your air conditioning unit. A programmable thermostat can also help reduce usage when cooling isn’t needed.

An average central air conditioning unit can last upwards of 20 years. While air conditioners from 10 years ago may not be as efficient as newer models, some air conditioners can effectively cool your home for over 30 years.

Newer air conditioners are much quieter than older generation air conditioners. Depending on the model of your air conditioner, you might not hear any noise at all.

The most common cause of a leaking air conditioner is frozen evaporator coils. A dirty air conditioning filter can cause your coils to freeze even during hot Summer months. Another cause of a leaking air conditioner is a full or cracked drain pan.
