Central Air Conditioning Repair & Replacement
Gold Star specializes in air conditioning system repair, and we service all makes and models. If you have a system failure, we will fix it quickly, and if you have less obvious problems, such as uneven cooling, we will diagnose and correct it. Our company even has repair technicians on call around the clock for those urgent cooling issues. If it is time to replace your air conditioner rather than repair it, we can assist you in selecting the best model for your home and installing it precisely.
Types of Central Air Conditioning Systems
The two main types of central air conditioners are split systems and packaged units. Split systems are generally preferred because they are more efficient and have a longer equipment life for the indoor components, but packaged units are required in situations where a split system is not practical.
Understand How Central Air Conditioning Works
Central air conditioning systems are typically split systems with an outdoor unit housing the compressor and an indoor unit housing the evaporator condenser coils and air handler. There are, however, packaged systems that house all of that equipment in an outdoor unit and are used for homes and businesses that, for whatever reason, cannot accommodate the indoor equipment. Both configurations are installed, replaced, serviced, and repaired by Gold Star’s skilled and experienced technicians.
Air is drawn into the central air conditioning system via return vents and delivered via supply vents. Return vents are relatively large, and your home may only have one or two. Supply vents are typically smaller and more numerous throughout a home. This circulation is created by a blower. Return vent air is forced through a heat exchanger, which transfers heat energy from the air. The cooled air is then forced through the ductwork and into the living space via the return vents.
Advantages of Having a Central Air Conditioning System
A central air conditioning system offers numerous advantages for maintaining a comfortable indoor environment. It provides consistent and even cooling throughout the entire house, ensuring every room receives the same level of comfort. It eliminates the need for bulky window units or portable air conditioners, allowing for more aesthetic appeal and unobstructed views. Additionally, central AC systems are generally quieter compared to individual units, reducing noise pollution inside and outside the house. They also offer better air quality by filtering and purifying the air, removing dust, pollen, and other allergens.
• Energy Efficiency
Compared to window units, central air conditioners offer greater energy efficiency. However, it’s crucial to select the appropriate-sized unit to maximize efficiency. An oversized or undersized unit can lead to improper cycling, resulting in higher operating costs and increased wear and tear.
• Filtered Air
While central air conditioning systems don’t actively filter the air, modern units are designed to minimize the introduction of pollutants into the living space. Regular seasonal maintenance and occasional duct cleaning help maintain clean air quality.
• Quiet Operations
Central air conditioning is known for its quiet operation. The loudest components, such as the blower, are insulated away from the living space, distinguishing it from window units and mini-splits that can generate noticeable noise.
• Programmable Settings
Central AC systems are compatible with smart and programmable thermostats, allowing users to optimize energy usage. With programmable settings, you can save money by adjusting cooling settings when the house is unoccupied, such as during work and school hours.
• Consistent Temperature
Unlike window ACs and mini splits, central systems distribute cooled air evenly throughout the entire home. This ensures that there are no warm spots and maintains consistent temperatures in every room, thanks to the pressure in the ductwork.
Air Conditioning Maintenance Services
Seasonal maintenance is the best way to avoid breakdowns and other AC problems. We recommend scheduling a tune-up before the cooling season to perform a multi-point inspection, clean your system, check refrigerant levels, and repair any wear and tear.
