Air Conditioning Repair Service
Unfortunately, a central air conditioner has a tendency to break down when it is needed the most. Usually, during that period, your cooling system experiences a significant workload, and what may have been a minor issue yesterday can become a serious malfunction or a completely broken air conditioner today.

There are a few signs your central air conditioner needs a repair service:

Your central air conditioner is blowing warm air.
Inconsistent temperatures throughout your home.
Strange noises like grinding, squealing or banging.
Unpleasant odor coming from the air conditioning vents.
The air conditioner unit is leaking water.
The air conditioner is not turning on.
The air conditioner unit has short cycling (turns on and off frequently).
Increase in humidity in your home. Increased energy bills.
Air Conditioning Maintenance Service
A central AC system is a pricey investment for your comfort during the melting hot summers. Of course, anyone who has a central AC system, wants it to run smoothly and extend its lifespan. Besides that, there are many reasons why having an annual tune-up is a great idea. The most important reasons are:

Your central air conditioning system efficiency. A well-maintained system operates more efficiently. Your home is cooler, your energy bills are lower, and the air in your house has fewer pollutants and allergens, which is crucial for people who suffer from allergies or lung diseases.
Can prevent your system from high-cost repairs. Small issues can be found and repaired before they turn into serious breakdowns with expensive repair costs. It can prevent a situation where on one of the hottest days you will need to look for emergency HVAC repair.
Your well-maintained central air conditioner will have a longer lifespan. Regular maintenance prevents many serious AC unit breakdowns. Some of these breakdowns can lead to early system replacement.
You and your family's safety. A central AC unit has a refrigerant in the system. While it helps to keep you cool on hot days, it can be dangerous if it leaks. Another issue can be water condensation. If your air conditioner system has an issue with condensate draining, accumulated water can lead to property damage.
Improved airflow. Clean or replaced air filters help improve airflow in your house and reduce the load on your cooling system.
Warranty. Some manufacturers require regular maintenance service in order to keep their warranty.
Air Conditioning Installation Service
If you're building or renovating a home and considering a central air conditioning system, there are several factors to keep in mind to ensure you choose the right option for your needs. To maximize your comfort, energy efficiency, and the lifespan of your AC, it's important to consider factors such as:

Ductwork. A central air conditioner unit requires ductwork. An alternative to this is ductless mini-split systems.
The right size of the central air conditioner unit for your house size. If the unit is too small, it will not cool your home effectively, while a too-large unit will lead to energy waste and higher energy bills. To determine the appropriate unit size, consider the square footage of your house, ceiling height, number of doors and windows, insulation, and your home's sun exposure.
Energy efficiency. Pay attention to the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ration (SEER) of the central AC unit. The higher it is, the more energy efficient the model is. However, since the climate of New Jersey and New York is not as hot as in some other states, you may not need a model with the highest SEER.
Noise level of the unit. Take into consideration where you want the air conditioner unit to be installed. A loud unit installed near the bedroom might become an issue. If the only location for the unit is near the bedroom, consider buying a unit with a lower noise level and do not neglect on-time maintenance.
Smart home features. Some modern-day central AC systems allow you to control the temperature in your home from your phone.
Warranty. Check the length and terms of the warranty. Most of them require on-time maintenance service of your system in order to keep the warranty.
Zoned air conditioner system. A zoned air conditioning system allows you to set comfortable temperatures independently for different areas of your home, which can help you save on energy bills by adjusting the temperature in areas that are not used as often.
Air Conditioning Replacement Service
Every once in a while, each homeowner is faced with a decision to replace their HVAC system. Our technicians have prepared a list of signs that indicate that your central air conditioner may need to be replaced.

Age of your cooling system. The average lifespan of a central AC is approximately 10-15 years. If your system is older than ten years and requires frequent expensive repairs, it may be the right time to consider a central air conditioner replacement.
Increased energy bills. As an HVAC system ages, it becomes less energy efficient, which leads to higher energy consumption. Moreover, most modern-day air conditioners have higher energy efficiency ratings compared to older models.
You noticed strange noises. If your AC makes noises such as clicking, banging, grinding, squeaking, or rattling, it can be a sign of an expensive repair or a replacement of the system.
Refrigerant leaks. In some cases, a repair can be very expensive.
Spare parts costs. The older your AC gets, the more difficult it can become to find spare parts. Often, the cost of new parts is very high.
You increased the living area of your house. In that case, your existing central air conditioner can be too small to efficiently cool your home.
You noticed excessive humidity and a moldy smell from your AC. If your AC does not effectively remove excess humidity and this issue is neglected, it can lead to mold growth inside the air conditioner. This issue can lead to system replacement.
Poor airflow. This is not a sign that your AC necessarily needs replacement. The issue can be in the clogged duct system as well.
