Charge Air Conditioner Lines

Charge Air Conditioner Lines

Usually most people have a friend of a friend or a connection with someone somewhere where they can get a central air conditioner at a great deal. This has become quite common and we often lose a sale if someone has a connection somewhere. In all honesty I don’t blame home owners; I would take a better deal if I could get one somewhere else as well. Maybe its not the exact same central air system, maybe it’s a better one but a connection can sometimes bring in a great deal. The thing is central air conditioners can only be installed using specialized equipment. The copper lines running from the AC, through the wall, and into the A coil in your furnace have to be filled with a specialized refrigerant and pumped up to a specified pressure. Ones the correct pressure has been attained within the lines the lines are then brazed closed so they can never leak. So you very well may get a great deal on your central air but you will be on the search for an AC company that will come out and charge air conditioner lines and I can tell you it is not a priority for most companies.

Winter Air Conditioner Care

Winter Air Conditioner Care

Your home air conditioner was probably one of your more expensive purchases and thus you want to take care if it.  Winter can be damaging to your system but removing it and storing it inside is not really an option for most home owners. We will discuss some of the ways you can protect your air conditioner as well as some of the things home owners do that can hurt your system. Winter Air Conditioner Location If your air conditioner is near a walkway, porch, or a location that has the potential to get salted for ice accretion then you are going to want to take additional action to protect your AC from salt.  The salt will speed up corrosion significantly.  I have seen home owners use skids with a tarp stapled to the outside in order to provide a sufficient salt and snow blockade. Water or ice dripping from the roof onto your air conditioner can be a serious issue.  Water expands when it freezes and can seriously damage your system.  Be proactive and ensure that the eaves troughs above are clean and debris free.  As a test you can spray the roof with a hose above your system to ensure that the troughs are not leaking and water is being diverted sufficiently. Snow drifts and blowing snow are a fact of life; if your air conditioner sits in a location that is prone to snow drifts you are going to want to protect it.  Blowing snow can penetrate right into the heart of an AC.  Try using an old skid as a snow block or your local hardware store likely has some snow fence. Winter Air Conditioner Protection An air conditioner cover is a great idea for Toronto and surrounding area homeowners.  The best types are made with a vinyl top, mesh sides, and a vinyl skirt around the bottom few inches.  The mesh allows air to flow though the air conditioner drying it out in the spring when snow is melting back into water. The most prevalent point of entry for water and snow is through the top of your AC where the fan sits.  Placing a piece of plywood with a few bricks or rock on it...

What Is The Copper Worth In Your AC?

What Is The Copper Worth In Your AC?

Home air conditioners seem to be an irresistible target for some copper thieves these days. Unfortunately it is a common occurrence so we thought we should check out why thieves do it, and how much money they get for the crime. With one of our customers old central air systems we decided to tear it apart in search of the apparently significant copper money. In less than 10 minutes and with the help of three tools, an old but fully functional A/C can be stripped of its copper. In this case the unit is not worth anything but copper thieves frequently destroy brand new systems worth roughly $3,000 or more. When a thief steals your A/C, it is  unfortunate but the owner is stuck with the bill and the copper collected amounts to a little more than a handful, leaving A/C owners with a useless mess. The number one question – how much money do thieves get for the stolen copper? Using the copper we had legally removed from the air conditioner, we headed over to a local scrap yard and had the total haul weighed. 4.04 lbs. In order to get paid for our scrap metal they asked to photocopy valid identification, a policy required under Ontario laws. They then paid us our $12.12 @ $3 per pound of copper. Therefore a when a thief steals or destroys an air conditioner that could be worth $3,000 or more they net a total 12 dollars in scrap copper. Police told us that in most cases, those committing the crimes are just looking for a way to support a drug habit. They also mentioned that the risk of getingt caught for a misdemeanor is not the best deterrent for the crime...

Rental Central Air Conditioners In The GTA

Rental Central Air Conditioners In The GTA

Here is some honest and true advice on renting your air conditioner within the Toronto and Greater Toronto area.   First and foremost how does renting an air conditioner work? Well it is basically the exact same as renting your water heater. A company will install and maintain the system with no upfront costs with an agreement you pay a monthly fee for a set term defined on the contract. Of course this opens up even more questions, so I will try to answer them now. The benefits of a rental air conditioner No upfront costs Brand new energy efficient system Maintenance plans Stable and reliable payments No surprise repair bills or breakdown costs Costs – The installation and unit cost is absorbed by the air conditioner installer and supplying company on the outlook that it will be paid back slowly through the set monthly fee. Central Air Systems – Only new high efficient units are installed, they type and model is completely up to the home owners, but monthly fees will either increase or decrease according to cost. The Luxury Lennox Signature series is going to have a higher monthly cost verses a high efficiency Amana ASX. Maintenance – This may be covered by the company installing the system but contracts can and do vary so it is an important question to ask a rep who visits your home for the consultation and model selection. Payments – Since you’re on a monthly contract your payments are very stable, you can accurately set a budget without the necessity of accounting for breakdowns, maintenance, or repairs. Repairs – We just touched on this point, but to reiterate the installation company will handle all repairs and breakdowns associated with your air conditioner. Just like a water heater rental. The moment a problem arises call us up and we will repair or even replace the system at no cost to the homeowner.   Here are the negatives when renting your air conditioner. Like I mentioned at the beginning I’m going to be brutally honest here, I may even scare some potential clients off but I feel it is important to look at all the facts so homeowners know what they are getting...
