The Indoor Coil

April 3, 2014

We think that part of customer service is educating our customers. The more you understand about your air conditioning and heating system, the better you will feel about decisions you make in regards to equipment and maintenance needs. This is the first of several blog posts to educate on basic heating and air conditioning facts. What is an indoor coil? To answer this, we need to make one point about air conditioning clear: A home cooling system does not pump cool air into your home. It removes heat energy from your home. This may sound elementary, but it affects everything you understand about equipment. When the air conditioner turns on outside, it compresses a gas called refrigerant. When compressed, this gas turns into a chilled liquid, and is pumped inside via small, copper tubing. If you go out and look at your unit, you’ll see the insulated tubing running inside your home. The chilled refrigerant is sent to the indoor coil, which is a series of metal tubing. How the cooling happens. Once the indoor coil is filled with ice-cold refrigerant, the fan motor in the air handler (or furnace) pulls warm air from the home. The air is forced...

Common AC Problems

March 31, 2014

Air Bourne Air Can Help With Any A/C Problem An air conditioner is what helps all of us make it through a hot, humid Texas summer season. Sometimes, an older air conditioner will cough and sputter in the summer heat. Why? There are many things that can affect your air conditioning system. Below are a few common issues: 1) Dirty indoor coil: Indoor comfort is all about one thing: moving heat energy. An air conditioner compresses refrigerant which chills it. The chilled liquid is pumped inside to the indoor coil, and this coil absorbs heat energy from the air (which cools your indoor air). This indoor coil can become dirty from airborne contaminants and mold, which will hinder cooling performance. 2) Broken condenser fan: The air conditioner expels the heat energy absorbed inside into the outside air. If the fan in your air conditioner fails or can’t keep your equipment cool, your air conditioner will break down (similar to your car overheating). 3) Thermal expansion valve: This valve regulates the flow of refrigerant in your air conditioner. Too much refrigerant or too little refrigerant are both scenarios for disaster. 4) Older units: If your air conditioner or heat pump is old,...

Innovation

January 30, 2014

Innovation is one of those words that usually reserved for the latest product from Apple, or the latest hybrid vehicle. But guess what? Heating and air conditioning is now stepping onto the stage of product innovation. “Right…air conditioning, that’s kind of old hat isn’t it?” Sure, but not anymore. Modern indoor comfort systems feature some pretty slick options. For example, the equipment can communicate for self tuning which helps efficiency and comfort. Variable speed ECM fan motors are now ultra quiet, and support indoor air quality systems. Ventilators exchange fresh outdoor air with stale indoor air, and transfer heat energy in the process. Thermostats offer auto learning, weather forecasts and smart phone access. Still not convinced? Schedule a free in-home estimate with us. We’ll show you how your home can be more comfortable, and how your energy bills can shrink in the process! We’re a trusted Texas air conditioning company who is passionate about indoor comfort, and about thrilling our customers with amazing service. Call us today and experience the Air Bourne difference!
