Signs You Need to Replace Your A/C

There are several things to look for to determine if your AC unit needs replacement. As a homeowner, pay attention to things like:

  • Lack of cool air: Probably the most obvious sign of AC trouble is a lack of cool air. Now, this could be the result of a few things, which is why an inspection is important before automatically replacing your unit. But if your unit is around 10 years old, replacement is necessary.
  • Moisture buildup: All AC units will produce water/moisture, but a well-functioning unit will be able to handle it. If there is too much buildup or even leaks, they are a sign that your unit is not functioning properly. Depending on the severity of the issue, you may be able to get away with repairs. But deal with moisture as quickly as possible to prevent mold growth.
  • Strange sounds: Grinding, squeaking, and other louder than usual sounds could be an indicator of something wrong. A functioning unit, even an older unit, will make noises, but if they start to become louder than usual, you may need to repair or replace your air conditioner.
  • Bad smells: Smokey or burning smells are not a good thing to be produced by your AC unit. If these smells are present when your AC unit kicks in, something is wrong. Contact Kool My Air, Inc. as soon as possible to begin inspecting and potentially replacing your unit.
  • Higher energy bills: An inefficient AC unit could be causing your energy bills to skyrocket. The older the unit, the harder it has to work to cool the air in your home. You’ll see this in your bills, which can quickly increase the older or more damaged or air conditioner is.

This is why inspection scheduled for at least twice a year are so highly encouraged. Regular inspections, maintenance, and repairs can help your unit last longer than 10 years and still work efficiently. Another easy way that homeowners are encouraged to keep their AC units running smoothly is by changing the AC replacement filters at least once a month. Doing so will prevent dust and dirt buildup, which can affect the efficiency of your unit. The best thing you can do is invest in an energy efficient ac. These units are designed to effectively and efficiently produce cool air for home. The energy output is significantly lower than a regular unit and they can easily be installed by the Kool My Air, Inc. team.

How do I know if my air conditioner needs Freon?

Freon air conditioning unit

Freon is a commonly known refrigerant coolant that is  used for refrigerator and air conditioning units. Freon or R-22, is slowly being replaced by a more eco-friendly refrigerator coolant such as Puron otherwise known as R-140A,  since it has been noted to have caused some side effects due to leakage both in and outside of the home. As we delve into the effects of Freon, we will discuss the costs, repair and health related issues and why Freon is slowly being phased out.

Can you still get Freon for air conditioner?

The simple answer is yes but due to certain factors, will possibly become a thing of the past as we will discuss later in this post.  While you can get Freon for your air conditioning unit it does not require a recharge as Freon units can last for several years. Consult with a professional in air conditioning repair if you find that there is a leak in your air conditioning unit before you consider a Freon recharge. The cost to put Freon in your unit is pretty inexpensive ranging from $100-$150. However Freon does need to constantly be replaced. One way to know if you need Freon is if your air conditioning unit is blowing warm air and having a tough time cooling your home the way it should. If your air conditioning has what looks to be frost or ice hanging from it, then Freon is needed in this case as well.

What kind of Freon goes in a home air conditioner?

Freon is a type of refrigerant coolant used in refrigerators, automobiles and air conditioning units to name a few. There are two types of refrigerant: R-22 and R140A.  R-22 otherwise known as Freon is the most commonly used refrigerant. Even though it is the more popular between the two, it has been said to be hazardous to the environment. If you are looking to go more green use Puron or R410A in your air conditioning unit.  Puron R-410A has also replaced Freon that was once used in your refrigerator which occurred back in the eighties.

How much does it cost to put Freon in an air conditioner?

As stated earlier, Freon is a pretty inexpensive installation since it does not need to be regularly replaced.  Replacement costs on average between $100-$150 while air conditioners themselves can run upwards to $4000 per unit.  If you have a large commercial HVAC unit, typically found installed on singly ply roofing, the price for Freon replacement could be higher. To determine if you need a new air conditioner all together, look to see what year your model is. Newer air conditioning units do not use R-22. Therefore, if you have an older model it is best to look into upgrading your air conditioning unit.

What does a Freon leak smell like?

Of course Freon is a chemical. Freon is odorless and tasteless. While I do not feel anyone will attempt to consume Freon as a refreshing beverage, the fact that it is an odorless component is very dangerous. If Freon is inhaled, it can be significantly dangerous to the person’s lungs cutting off all oxygen.  So making sure your air conditioning unit does not have any leaks is critical. Contact an air conditioning professional to avoid any Freon leaks that may occur and do bodily harm. Leaks can appear on the outside of the unit in liquid for and can cause minor injury if there is skin contact. While in the evaporator coil, the Freon is an odorless gas and can leak that way as well.  The acid that gathers inside the coil can cause corrosion and create tiny holes that leads to leaks.

Is a Freon leak in your home dangerous?

A Freon leak inside the home would be due to a leak in the refrigerator as Freon leaks from an air conditioning unit would normally occur on the outside. These leaks result in minor injuries such as dizziness and headaches although it is best to maintain leakage from any source. At the most you can experience a form of refrigerant poisoning with symptoms of irritation in the facial region.  Remember to contact a professional before attempting to handle any repairs for your air conditioning.

Puron is slowly becoming more integrated into appliances that used to incorporate Freon as a healthier and more environmentally safe alternative. As newer appliances are being introduced to the market, home-owners who still use older appliances that use only Freon, are now being asked to upgrade as Freon will not be used as often in future products.  The cost is relatively low in replacing or recharging Freon but the long term damage if not maintained can be even more costly. For other questions about Freon vs refrigerant and other services, call 833-321-5665 at Miami Beach, FL.

When Your Home has Squirrel Damage

Hearing squirrels running around in your attic or behind your home’s walls is annoying, scary, and worrisome. Just how were they able to get into the home and how much damage was caused doing so? Just how long has the home been vulnerable for further damage to occur? These are often questions that run through homeowners heads when they realize they have squirrel damage in their Miami Beach, FL home and need to get repairs. If you are needing repairs to any of your air conditioning systems from squirrel damage, call Kool My Air, Inc. at 833-321-5665 today.

Squirrel Destruction to Homes and HVAC Units

Squirrels often get into homes by chewing through soffit and fascia. This then allows them to access the attic where they like to chew through insulation and wires, then ending up inside air ducts where they get stuck and die. This is usually where homeowners realize that they have a squirrel infestation- as the putrid stench of a decaying animal in the air ducts starts wafting throughout the home, requiring professional HVAC cleaning and removal. Air duct repair and residential roof repair in FL are also then required to repair the exterior entry points of the home where the squirrel gained access inside.

Can Squirrels Chew Through Walls?

Squirrels Often Hide in Warm Places Inside Your Home Like Your Insulation or Air Ducts

Squirrels can and will chew through walls, as they love the warmth of the insulation that is packed inside the drywall. You can often hear the animals inside your walls, with their little toenails making scurrying and scratching sounds all throughout the day. Do squirrels come out at night? Most breeds of squirrels are not nocturnal, so you will hear their activities during the day. Only flying squirrels are active at night.

Oftentimes, these will be mother squirrels looking for warm places to nest her young, so you want to remove the animals humanely. Drilling a hole in the wall and removing them, or calling professional wildlife control removal to come and get them are the best way to get rid of the rodents. Setting up traps are not recommended at all.

Common Signs of Squirrel Damage to Look For

  • Chewed wiring
  • Chewed furniture
  • Droppings in the attic, closet, or inside walls
  • Dug up gardens or missing fruits and vegetables from gardens
  • Damaged siding, soffit, fascia, chimneys, insulation, or other roofing materials
  • Loss of heating and cooling from chewed holes in air ducts
  • Urine or water stains on ceilings

How Do You Get Rid of a Squirrel?

You can lure them out of their hiding spots in the walls or air ducts of your home by making it so unbearable for them to live there that they seek shelter elsewhere. Irritating squirrels’ senses with squirrel repellent the best squirrel prevention method. What is a good squirrel repellent? For outside preventative repellents, things like mulch, sprinkler systems, and floodlights help to keep the critters from ever entering your yard and being tempted to climb trees to enter through your roof. If they have breached your home, good repellents to use inside include ultrasonic devices or vinegar.

They have sensitive noses and taste buds and don’t like anything spicy which annoys these senses. Sprinkling cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, or paprika around your home will trigger their senses and alert them that they are in an uncomfortable environment. Other scents that they don’t like include peppermint, or predator urine from foxes which you can buy at farm supply stores.

Other ways to lure them out is to keep food properly stored and eliminating any standing water in your yard that might attract these animals to gather around your home for daily meals. You can also purchase humane live traps and set them up in areas of the home where you know that squirrels are residing or that you have seen squirrel damage and wait

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Squirrel Damage?

hvac technician checks air ducts

Loss of Heat and Cool Air or Foul Smells Could Be Indicators That Squirrels Are In Your Air Ducts

Typically, your insurance company won’t cover any damage to your home caused by rodents like squirrels. Insurance companies view squirrel damage as being able to be prevented by better home maintenance. Upgrading to ‘tougher roofing like metal that squirrels can’t chew through to enter the home would have prevented any squirrel damage from happening in the first place’, is the mindset of the insurance companies.

Insurance companies will only really fork over money to clients in events that they consider “acts of God” that considered considerable damage due to the elements, like nature. So if a squirrel happened to chew through your wiring and started an electrical fire, then they would help cover some of the damage costs, but not for regular repair of your chewed-through insulation, fascia, or air ducts. If your air ducts have experienced squirrel damage in Miami Beach, FL, contact Kool My Air, Inc. at 833-321-5665.

Is Your Home Ready for a Mini Duct HVAC System?

Closeup of Smaller Duct Lines

Traditional Vents are Much Larger Than Those in a High Velocity Mini Duct System.

While the concept of high velocity AC has been around since the 70’s, these symptoms have soared in popularity in recent years. Not only do homeowners use high velocity (also known as mini duct HVAC) systems to retrofit their aging duct work, many new construction properties utilize them as well. While these premium systems may cost more at installation, they offer several opportunities to save money with improved efficiency and functionality. Here’s how!

What is a Mini Duct HVAC System?

High velocity HVAC systems utilize a specialized pressure system to force air through a serious of flexible duct work. The ducts are comprised of very small tubes (some are only 2 inches wide), which can fit behind traditional wall spaces and effortlessly curve in and out of tight spaces. Smaller tubing provides several helpful benefits for homeowners, which we will talk about in a little bit.

Traditional HVAC Solutions

Traditional forced air systems operate at a much slower pace, taking additional time to circulate air throughout large houses. Their rigid ducts require a lot of space to install, making additions to an original forced air system could require you to tear up ceiling areas just to make room. Diverting to newly added rooms is just as frustrating.

The duct work in forced air systems is susceptible to wasteful leaks that develop over time. While they may go unnoticed for months or even years, these leaks will cause your HVAC system to activate for longer cycles. This not only increases energy consumption, it also accelerates wear and tear on your HVAC unit’s mechanical parts. When compared with traditional air conditioning systems, high velocity AC is clearly the winner in terms of functionality and efficiency.

High Velocity Air Conditioning Pros and Cons

High Velocity Mini Duct System

In a High Velocity Mini Duct System, Duct Lines are Considerable Smaller and Better Insulated.

There are several alluring perks for installing a high velocity HVAC system. Compared with other solutions on the market (even mini split systems) high velocity air conditioning is incredibly convenient and space saving. As we mentioned earlier, these systems can supply heating and cooling much faster than forced air systems. As a result, your home’s air is conditioned in less time and your HVAC system can turn off sooner, saving energy.

 

Pros

  • Little to No Construction Work Needed During Installations
  • Simple to Use During Retrofits or Extensions
  • Requires About 1/3 the Space of Traditional Ducts
  • Circulate Air Faster For Speedier Heating and Cooling
  • Shorter Run Times, Saving Energy
  • Tubing Can Fit Behind Walls and Between Rafters
  • Little Equipment Needed to Serve a Full House
  • Vents are Less Noticeable in Ceiling

Cons

  • Cost of a High Velocity Mini-Duct System Somewhat Higher
  • More Complicated to Adapt for Zoned HVAC
  • Rush of High Velocity Air Can Be Chilly

High Velocity Air Conditioning vs Mini Split

As you can see, there are numerous benefits provided by high velocity systems. But how do they stack up against a more premium solution, such as a mini split HVAC system? Let’s compare the two!

Mini Split Systems Explained

A Mini Split System Mounted on a Wall

Mini Split Systems are More Obvious, But They Can Customize Room Temperatures.

First, we need to understand the core function of a mini split solution. Also known as “ductless split systems”, mini splits utilize up to 4 ceiling or wall-mounted units which are connected to an outside unit by a single tube. The indoor units take in warm air from each room, flush the heat outside, and redistribute the now-cooled air. One of the primary reasons homeowners love mini splits is that they can customize the temperature in each room with an indoor unit. Plus there is practically zero duct work required to install the system.

Now how does this stack up with high velocity AC?

The Two HVAC Systems Compared

We’ll break down different aspects of each system and declare a winner in each category. Let’s start with space requirements.

  • Hardware Requirements: Tied

While mini split systems require no duct work to circulate air, most are limited to cooling 4 rooms. To provide customizable temperatures for more rooms, a second air handler will be required. On the other hand, a high velocity HVAC system requires a little duct work, but it also heats and cools the entire house with just one unit. Both provide an impressively small HVAC system. Thus, we come to a tie. 

  • Efficiency: High Velocity Mini Ducts

The pressure-powered system of a high velocity AC speeds air throughout the house at an impressive rate, considerably faster than mini split systems. High velocity wins. 

  • Customization: Mini Split Systems

While high velocity systems can be augmented to achieve zone control, mini split systems have this feature built into their basic design. Mini split wins.

  • Appearance: High Velocity Mini Ducts

The temperature customization of mini split systems comes with a notable downside: protruding boxes mounted on the wall. Mini ducts feature tiny, powerful vents that function well but aren’t as noticeable. High velocity AC wins. 

  • Cost: Tied

Do expensive roof leak repair costs have you looking for the most affordable HVAC system option? The cost of a high velocity mini-duct system is very close to that of a mini split system. If a home requires more than one air handler however, the mini split system may cost more. It’s close though, so we’ll call it a tie anyway.

Common Problems With Home Air Ducts

Air Ducts

Leaky Ducts Can Cost You Hundreds in Higher Energy Costs. Keep Them Sealed as Best You Can!

Your HVAC system daily relies on healthy air ducts to efficiently transport cool air around the house. Unfortunately, air ducts come with their fair share of problems, which can be surprisingly expensive to fix (if not detected early on). These problems include:

  • Air Leaks
  • Insufficient Insulation
  • Mold Growth

Today, we have a short guide to help you get a leg up on your air duct maintenance and prevent these nasty hazards! 

How Do You Fix Leaky Ducts?

When you (or your local HVAC technician) gets to work fixing your air ducts, the first thing to look out for is obvious gaps and tears in the piping. Generally, large traditional duct work is highly susceptible to cracking and tears after so many years. You home may have significant leaks already; many homeowners don’t know there’s something wrong until their energy bill skyrockets.

As tedious as this may be, you need to seal the cracks as completely as possible. You can take time to add extra insulation while you’re at it, as this almost always pays itself off in reduced cooling costs. If you can’t stand the heat, you can always hire a professional.

How Do I Prevent Mold in My Air Conditioner?

Mold is created when you have too much humidity in your home. Unfortunately, this is a serious problem for many homeowners in Florida, where humidity is just another part of life. There are a number of steps you can take to prevent the growth of mold and mildew, including…

  • Increasing ventilation in your attic (an area often untreated by AC)
  • Installing a UV light filter
  • Installing a whole home dehumidifier

Many local homeowners favor dehumidifiers, since reduced humidity naturally makes the air feel coolerIf you’re having problems removing excess humidity from your home, consider installing a whole home dehumidifier (preferably before you have to call for mold and mildew restoration).

The Benefits of Air Conditioner Maintenance

The Benefits of Air Conditioning Maintenance

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Our Team Can Render Comprehensively Excellent Air Conditioning Maintenance.

Air conditioning maintenance is an invaluable procedure that can lengthen the life of your system. The average air conditioner will last for 10 to 15 years. To achieve the upper end of this estimate, you absolutely need the benefit of regular AC maintenance. Since it lengthens the life of your unit, maintenance will also increase the overall value of your HVAC investment. Units that receive regular care will also require less energy to operate. As air conditioners age, parts will begin to wear out.

As a consequence, your unit will require more energy to adequately cool your home. Expert-level service can reverse this trend, maintain your unit’s optimal level of service, and lower your monthly energy bills. To learn more about the benefits of regular service, give us a call today at 833-321-5665. Kool My Air, Inc. represents your local leader for air conditioning maintenance in Miami Beach, FL.

What Is Involved in HVAC Maintenance?

Astute AC maintenance will cover five different areas. Each of these has a vital impact on your air conditioner’s functional capabilities.

Refrigerant Levels: Your air conditioner uses refrigerant to create cool air. Over time, your refrigerant levels may drop, due to leaks or other problems. An AC with low refrigerant will work harder to regulate your home’s temperature, and can eventually lose its ability to create any cool air at all.

Electronic Controls and Components: Maintenance should comprehensively check your ACs electrical connections and components. Problems here can short out your system, and render damage to other interior parts.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Maintenance Allows Us to Perform Preventative Repairs to Save You Money.

Parts Lubrication: Like any complicated machine, an air conditioner has many moving parts. Regular maintenance should include the lubrication of these parts to ensure a continued level of optimal service.

Thermostat Caibration: A professional technician will also calibrate your thermostat as part of AC maintenance. Thermostat calibration ensures the proper function of your AC, and also increases its energy efficiency.

Cleaning: Over time, air conditioners collect dirt, debris, and worse. In the absence of regular cleaning, these airborne particles get endlessly cycled through your home. To ensure cleaner air and better operation for your unit, an HVAC technician should clean your AC’s coils and change its filters.

How Often Should You Have Your Air Conditioner Serviced?

An air conditioner should ideally receive service on an annual basis. This can allow the technician to not only perform the items listed above, but also identify repair needs before they cause trouble. These preventative repairs are perhaps the greatest benefit of annual maintenance, as they correct problematic issues before they become full-blown problems. Maintenance for your complete HVAC system should occur on a seasonal basis: in spring for the air conditioner, and fall for the furnace. The choice of these times ensures that your HVAC can handle the highest of seasonal demands.

Keeping Your House Cool And Your Bill Low

When it is hot and sticky here in Florida, it can be almost unbearable to not have the A/C turned on. It feels great until the end of the month comes and you get the electric bill and see the price of staying cool. There are a few simple things that you can do that you may not have thought of that will help you keep cool allow you to keep a lower energy bill. There will be times that you do have to run your air and deal with the bill because there is no reason to live in your home and be uncomfortable, but with a few of these simple tricks, you may be able to get some relief.

Cool Down Your Home

Curtains – Curtains can be your best friend in the summertime. To keep your house cooler, turn down your air and shut all the curtains and blinds so that your home is as dark as possible. Once you have done that and you have lowered the temperature in your house, you can turn your air off and the house should remain cold for a while as long as no one is going in and out.

Fans – This is a simple one that some people don’t even think about. If you are just planning to sit around your house, you may just want to turn the air off your down and turn the fans on. This will be able to keep you comfortable at the very least.

If you need help with your A/C, call Kool My Air, Inc. at 833-321-5665 and let us help you.

Energy Efficient Tips For Your Home Air Conditioning

Energy Efficiency

Keeping Your Home Energy Efficient This Summer May Not Be As Hard As You Think.

With summer almost here, it is time to get that AC turned on! One big concern many homeowners have during the summer months is how to keep their home energy efficient and keep your utility bills low. It may seem impossible with rising heat, however, there are some things you can do to ensure your home stays cool while not breaking the bank. The Kool My Air, Inc. team have compiled a list of things you can do for a more energy efficient home.

Ways To Increase Efficiency

  • Check Your Insulation – Quality insulation in a home can help your property retain cool air during the summer time and prevent the outside weather from entering your home. You can check this by going to your attic and looking at your roof structure.
  • Close Your Blinds – During the winter, having your blinds open can naturally warm your home. However, during the summer, you want your home to be cool. Control how natural light and UV rays affect your home by closing your blinds.
  • Use Your Thermostat – Set your thermostat at a good average temperature so that the system is not overworking. If you have a programmable thermostat, you can set it to be only on and off at certain times of the day, reducing the use of energy when no one is home.
  • Update your Home Air Conditioner – One final way you can improve your energy efficiency is to replace your old system with a new one designed to be more energy efficient. Newer models can even tell you their efficiency rating. If you choose this option, speak with your local heating and air conditioning company to get the best model and size for your home.

Ductless Air Conditioning- What You Need to Know

In most homes, some variance of central heating and air is in place. However, in older homes or homes with small central systems, and a ductless unit could be ideal. Ductless air conditioning units work to provide cooler air in an energy-efficient way to areas with high heat or no duct A/C. There are two main types of ductless A/C that can benefit your home.

Ask Our Experts if a Ductless System is Right For You.

Ductless Air Conditioners Provide Energy Efficient Cooling Without the Need for a Duct System.

Single Zone Options

These air conditioners work in one room to provide cooler air to a concentrated space. They use a wall or ceiling mounted blower along with a small outside condenser with refrigerant and power lines connecting the two. These systems provide reinforced cool air to areas with no duct or spaces that need extra cooling.

Multiple Zone Air Conditioners

Multi-zone ductless A/Cs offer the same effectiveness, only with multiple blowers that connect to your condenser. These small wall or ceiling units deliver optimal air filtration along with cooled air right where you need with adjustable airflow and delivery systems. When you are looking to utilize a ductless system for your entire home’s air conditioner, a multi-zone option works best to keep your home cool and energy costs down.

Whether you’re looking for an option to reinforce your current A/C unit or you need a ductless system for your older home with no central air conditioner, the Kool My Air, Inc. experts can help you choose the perfect model for your needs. Call us today at 833-321-5665 to learn more about your ductless air conditioning options in Miami Beach, FL or to schedule your consultation.
