Comparing Air Conditioners

When comparing air conditioners, pay close attention to the SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It’s a measure of how efficient an air conditioner cools your home in the summer. The higher the SEER, the less energy you’ll use. Ellis Heating and Air Conditioning can help you find the right size air conditioner for your home.

Proper Size Matters

Bigger is not always better. Air conditioners remove the heat and humidity inside your home when it runs. In order to do that, it needs to run long enough. An oversized unit will cool the home too quickly, but not remove enough humidity. This will leave the home feeling damp and clammy. A properly sized air conditioner will be efficient, remove the humidity and heat, and leave the home feeling just right. We will size your unit based on the size of the home, number of windows and other factors.

Is Your A/C Running Constantly?

Air conditioners are designed to run. Some 24/7. In most cases they will turn off and on periodically throughout the day but as the heat turns up, usually past 95 degrees, its normal for some to run for hours on end.

By continuously running, they are removing heat and humidity from your home. Most units are designed to maintain an average temperature of 78 degrees on a 95-degree day. Beyond that, they may run nonstop until the sun and its heat goes down in the evening.

Air Conditioning Repair

Is your air conditioner not working or not blowing cold air? We provide HVAC service on all makes and models of air conditioners in the Raleigh, Cary, Fuquay-Varina & Holly Springs area. We will identify the problem and provide an estimate for the repair. We want to build trust with our customers so honesty is our ONLY policy. We will not try and sell you on parts you don’t need. If we feel it is more economical to replace the unit, we’ll let you know.

Quality Parts

We use only the best parts made in the USA to repair the most common air conditioner repairs. Our capacitors (the most common service call) are made in Florida and have a 5 year part warranty. Most contractors sell the cheapest “Made in China” parts that average 2-5 years lifespan. The second most common service call is a clogged drain line. Many times it is discovered as water is dripping through the ceiling which adds significant cost and damage to a normally simple problem. We offer a part that will keep the water from leaking out of the system in the event of a clogged drain. This device is also serviceable by our technicians or we can even show you how to clean it yourself yearly if you choose to do so.

Air Conditioner Lifespan

Lifespans of air conditioners can depend on several things. Some of the more important factors are brand and quality of installation. In May of 2012, readers of a national product testing and research magazine rated American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning’s air conditioners and heat pumps as the most reliable brand among leading manufacturers. Likewise, in 2014, Ellis Heating & Air Conditioning was awarded American Standards Customer Care dealer of the year. Besides brand and installation, maintenance will be the third component to ensure a long, productive lifespan.

With regular maintenance, you can extend the life of your air conditioner, save on energy, and not be surprised by repairs. Our goal is not to sell you things each time we visit which is most companies idea of maintenance. We are there for the sole purpose of making your system last as long as possible and gaining your trust along the way. We only offer parts because it’s either necessary or beneficial to your system.

During an air conditioner tune-up, we wash all outdoor units and remove debris from the inside of the air conditioner housing. We offer suggestions on how to keep the unit clean throughout the year.

Air Conditioning Tune-Up

  • We clean all the components inside the air conditioner unit.
  • Test HVAC unit
  • Check condenser coil
  • Test safety controls
  • Inspect unit wiring
  • Clean condensate drain lines
  • Check and adjust refrigerant
  • Wash outdoor units
  • Remove debris from inside and around the outside of the unit
  • Check air-filters

Change Your Filters

Your heating & air equipment wants the least amount of airflow resistance possible so if you don’t have any health issues, cheap fiberglass filters are best. By using pleated or “heavier” filters, your system can be starved from lack of airflow. If indoor air quality is a concern, the American Standard AccuClean is an option to add on to a system to reduce particulates from the home without significantly reducing airflow thus maintaining the efficiency of the system.

Consider a Maintenance Contract

Your heating and air-conditioning system is a complex electrical and mechanical combination. Without proper maintenance, wear and tear will erode its life expectancy. There are many parts with measurable limits that need to be inspected and replaced when necessary. We offer a maintenance contract that ensures your HVAC is running at peak efficiency.

HVAC Maintenance Contract
