A central air conditioner is designed to last for many years. However, if yours is getting on up there in age it may not work as efficiently as the newer more up-to-date models. Today’s models used a lot less energy than those of years past. Some even use half as much energy. These units are definitely worth the investment though, so you would not necessarily just rip out a working system to replace it with a newer more energy efficient model. However, if you need to replace your unit anyway, you will most likely realize a lower energy bill each month with the new ones.

Consult with Avis to see what the right unit to choose for your house is. You need to make sure to get a large enough unit for it to have the capacity to cool your whole house. When your unit is too small, it will not be able to cool the house sufficiently and you will wind up with higher energy bills as your unit struggles to keep the house cool.

If your unit is over 10 or 20 years old, you may consult with a professional on how much you would save each month updating to a newer system, if your budget allows. The savings may easily pay for the new system in a short time. At least, when you get a professional to come out and analyze your specific situation, you can then make an educated decision.

Central air conditioning is a huge part of many people’s lives today. You definitely want your system working up to optimum standards using as little energy as possible. Give Avis a call to see if you need a new setup at your house today!

Southwest Florida AC Repairs and Replacements

A central air conditioning system is an expensive investment, but most systems aren’t meant to last for much more than ten years. Ideally, it should be energy-efficient while maintaining optimal comfort in every part of the home. Your air  conditioning system should be able to reduce the humidity level that contributes to the discomfort of summer heat, while lowering the temperature enough to let people sleep well or enjoy their activities when they’re awake. Even with regular maintenance, you may reach a point where your system isn’t functioning well enough to keep your home comfortable during the hottest part of the summer. Avis can help you make that decision if your air conditioning system needs to be repair or replaced.

Have you ever found yourself in the Florida heat without a working air conditioner? This is never a pleasant experience. The best way to ensure that your air conditioning unit remains in working order is by seeking routine air conditioner maintenance.

Minute particles of dirt and dust can still enter various parts of your air conditioning, causing problems that might call for repair. The only way to ensure that this dust and dirt does not get out of control is to seek periodic air conditioner maintenance to clean all of the parts of your unit.

These inspections help to identify certain issues that may be decreasing your air quality and preventing your air conditioning unit from functioning in the most energy efficient manner. A video duct inspection is often the most effective way to get a peek inside your ducts and locate blockages and other potential issues. This video duct inspection involves the use of a camera which can easily maneuver through your air ducts to give your technician a better idea of what may be causing you problems and determine whether or not you might need air duct cleaning.

By utilizing the video duct inspection services at Avis Plumbing and Air Conditioning, you can help to ensure that your air conditioning unit is working at full capacity. Our skilled professionals will use the video duct inspection to diagnose any issues or determine if you need air duct cleaning. The best way to provide effective solutions to your air duct issues is to take a look inside. Contact Avis today and find out if a video duct inspection might be right for you.

A Brief History of Air Conditioning

The first modern air conditioning system was developed in 1902 by a young electrical engineer named Willis Haviland Carrier. It was designed to solve a humidity problem at the Sackett-Wilhelms Lithographing and Publishing Company in Brooklyn, N.Y. Paper stock at the plant would sometimes absorb moisture from the warm summer air, making it difficult to apply the layered inking techniques of the time. Carrier treated the air inside the building by blowing it across chilled pipes. The air cooled as it passed across the cold pipes, and since cool air can’t carry as much moisture as warm air, the process reduced the humidity in the plant and stabilized the moisture content of the paper. Reducing the humidity also had the side benefit of lowering the air temperature — and a new technology was born.

Carrier realized he’d developed something with far-reaching potential, and it wasn’t long before air-conditioning systems started popping up in theaters and stores, making the long, hot summer months much more comfortable.

The actual process air conditioners use to reduce the ambient air temperature in a room is based on a very simple scientific principle. The rest is achieved with the application of a few clever mechanical techniques. Actually, an air conditioner is very similar to another appliance in your home — the refrigerator. Air conditioners don’t have the exterior housing a refrigerator relies on to insulate its cold box. Instead, the walls in your home keep cold air in and hot air out.

Central air conditioning runs through a house via ductwork and registers to keep a house cool. The cooled air travels through the ductwork and out the registers to accomplish this. There is also return registers for the air to circulate back up to the main cooling unit.

It is important to understand how these cooling systems work. They dehumidify the air coming into the house, along with cooling it. There are different makes and models of these systems for homes. The most common being a split-system model. With this system, there is an outdoor unit with a compressor and condenser and then on the inside of the house there is a unit containing the evaporator. If the house has central heating, it is usually included in this indoor unit.

Commercial buildings may have a packaged version of the central air conditioners. With this version the condenser, compressor and evaporator are all combined in one outdoor unit. This version can be placed on the concrete slab next to the buildings or on the roof. Homes can also use this type of cooling system.

Having a cooling system like either one of these models is more efficient than the portable window units are. These portable ones have a limited range and ability. If someone has a large house, it would take a portable unit in each room to sufficiently cool the whole house. This would cost more energy-wise compared to what a central model running through ductwork would cost to operate.
