R-410A: Everything to Know About Your Refrigerant

Monday, September 27th, 2021

It might be obvious to some homeowners, and less obvious to others, but every house with an air conditioner contains refrigerant. Air conditioners use refrigerant as a central component to the cooling process. Without this material, an air conditioner would just be an oversized fan since it would be unable to drop temperatures consistently.

We often talk about the cooling process and how refrigerant cools the air of a home, but what we seldom talk about are the different types of refrigerants. This is important because it will dictate the future of your HVAC maintenance in Los Angeles, CA. A system that runs with older refrigerant might need a full replacement instead of maintenance, especially with the R-22 phaseout that happened last year.

Let’s talk about R-410A, the most common refrigerant, and what homeowners should know about this kind of material.

It’s Time to Talk About Your Refrigerant

Monday, March 15th, 2021

As you take your air conditioner out of “retirement” and start fiddling around to get it up and running, refrigerant probably crossed your mind. Perhaps you’ve dealt with refrigerant leaks in the past, or maybe your system is dwindling in terms of comfort and you think it might be because the system doesn’t have enough refrigerant due to a leak. Either way, it might be time to talk about refrigerant and whether or not you require AC repair in Los Angeles, CA.

Before you scoff at that idea, just remember that an air conditioner might still function with a refrigerant leak, but you’re actively doing harm to it when it does. Leaking refrigerant can shorten the system’s lifespan, cause problems, decrease efficiency, leave your home warmer than it should be, and more.

Our team can help. But first, let’s talk about how you can tell if your system is leaking refrigerant.

Shifting Seasons, Shifting Air

Monday, March 1st, 2021

There’s a pretty interesting reason as to why we use the seasons at all in our calendars. We don’t have to name all the months and have unique names for each season and solstice, but we do. That’s because the weather can shift a lot and so does the indoor air quality of our homes.

Sure, the weather doesn’t dramatically shift in southern California as it might in other areas of the country, but it still shifts. With those shifts come contaminants that are picked up by winds, melted ice on mountain tops, and other allergens that can swiftly come into play in the spring months.

Now that spring is about to begin, it’s high time to think about an air filtration system in Los Angeles, CA. These units can filter out allergens, dust, debris, and whatever else might be coming your way in the next few months.
