Look at the label on the outer surface of the system component for a manufacture date. Equipment less than five years old may have a warranty, but also may not based on the manufacturer. Warranty terms and conditions vary by manufacturer and the installing company. Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can figure out the warranty status of your heating and cooling system via System Inspection. We also offer a Platinum PLUSTM Protection Plan for home heating and air conditioning systems, regardless of how old your equipment is or manufacturer warranty status.
Loud heating and cooling
equipment increase sound pollution.While no monetary
savings are tied to less sound in your home, the
sound rating of a cooling system can have a considerable effect on
comfort and enjoyment of your Mobile home. The sound level of an
air conditioner or heat pump depends on a variety of factors,
such as how old and who manufactured the
equipment, and the degree
to which the compressor is insulated can increase the
amount of noise it makes.
of heating and cooling systems built today are quieter than they ever have been, it's a sound idea to compare sound
ratings when shopping
for a new
air conditioner or heat pump,
particularly if the equipment location is near bedrooms or living rooms.
A Service Call fee is a fee for the expense associated with the time and travel to diagnose, inspect and deliver expert recommendations for a home's heating or air conditioning system by a certified professional technician. Coupons for the Service Call fee can often be found on our web site, in the Yellow Pages, or by email when joining our Email Club at the bottom of this page.
A popping sound is a typically sign of an under-sized duct design. It
may have to do with greater air flow than the duct work can handle. Have a qualified company analyze your home's ventilation system
for proper design and make necessary recommendations. Improper duct work layout can be attributed to several ventilation and air quality problems, including:
- loud popping
- higher energy usage
- lowered life of the system
- uneven temperatures throughout your home
- damaged compressor in cooling season
- overheated unit in the winter
In addition, if your ductwork is incorrectly sized you may have other concerns, such as leaky ducts and poor layout that restricts airflow. In humid states this can promote mold growth within your ductwork.
answer is, typically, yes. Here's why.
System Design: All air conditioner and heat pump outdoor units
are specially constructed
to work with a matched indoor unit for ideal
efficiency and performance. The effect of this matched equipment
is a harmonized,
top-performance team that ensures dependability and efficiency. Air conditioner
and heat pump outdoor units may ”run” with indoor units other
than those for which they have been specially intended;
however, the outcome
would be a definite compromise in system performance.
Advances: As research has improved, indoor blower coil
units have undergone a
number of design advances — especially in the areas of air handling
performance, filtering efficiency and operating sound levels. A new outdoor unit will also include the latest
Cooling And Heating Efficiency: The cooling and/or heating
efficiency ratings that are posted
for an air conditioner or heat pump are based on their performance as matched
systems. While changing only the outdoor unit may result in improved efficiency when looking at your old system, but efficiency
will suffer from what it was designed to be, and your savings will
be less than with a matched system.
Age: If an air conditioner or heat pump is 10 years old or more
ready for replacement, the
indoor unit is likely just as old and has been subjected to the same amount of wear and tear. Changing both units
means you won't have to replace the indoor unit in a brief time period… you'll have many years of efficient
Warranty: A new system also gives you a new
product warranty. Changing
the indoor unit simultaneously
with the outdoor unit results in peace of mind,
knowing that the new warranty covers the entire system for the same period of
Bargain: At first glance, substituting only the
outdoor air conditioner or heat pump may appear to be a deal. But, when you
consider the lower cooling and heating efficiencies, decreased reliability and
high cost of ownership that results, it's not such a bargain. Replacing an
entire system may cost more, but the result is
efficiency, reliability and comfort for years into the future.

You probably wouldn't buy a brand-new car and assume to not ever have to add air to the tires, change the oil and examine any unfamiliar noises. Your home comfort system is like your car’s engine; it’s a mechanical device with a motor, electrical components... and even fuel. So it is critical to have routine maintenance of your home comfort system by a qualified technician. If not properly and routinely maintained, even the best heating and air conditioning equipment could experience complications and become less 'fuel' efficient over time.
are several possibilities that can trigger your HVAC system to
freeze up; many of
them usually need to be corrected by a professional technician. Determining
the air filter is clean or replaced and confirming the airflow is not restricted are about the only things
a homeowner should safely investigate
or handle themself.
refrigerant: Sometimes, freezing up is initiated by a leak in the
refrigerant lines. Weak solder joints, friction from piping rubbing or
vibrating against an object, leaking valves or loose fittings can cause leaks. The length of time your system has been installed and the kind and location of the
determine whether to have the system repaired or
evaporator coil: In time, the evaporator coil will become dirty. In these cases,
the results are similar to those of having a dirty filter. Gradually
you will lose airflow, slowly enough that you probably would not realize it
until it freezes up or is not cooling adequately. You will need to contact your local Service Experts
sales and service center to correct
blower motor or relay: A blower motor running at an
improper speed or not running at all
can cause freezing. It can also be intermittent, starting at full
speed and slowing down after it heats up. Or a relay could cause it to start
one time and not the next. In either scenario, you will need to contact your local Service Experts
sales and service center to correct the problem.
that your system was freezing due to a dirty air filter, after replacing or
cleaning the filter, you can expedite the thawing process by turning the system off and
then turning on only the fan. If you have a heat pump system, you can try
turning the system to heating mode until the ice has melted. After the ice has
the system settings back to normal. If the system refreezes, contact Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in

you are replacing
your Mobile area home air conditioner, furnace or heat pump, it is the
right time to also install a new zoning system to fix
hot and cold spots or special temperature requirements in the home.
When your new comfort equipment is coordinated by a zoning

control in each zone.
is also a
great idea for new homes since the system can
be installed during construction. If you are investing in a new home,
check with your builder about a zoning system. It could make the difference
between just enjoying your new house and being truly comfortable in it.
