Better Air Conditioning Performance

The quality of the ductwork in your home plays a significant role in the performance of your air conditioning unit. When it is sealed with a sealant like Aeroseal, the performance of your AC will be increased by a large margin. 

This increase is explained by two reasons. First, the AC unit will not be fighting against duct leaks to deliver the needed temperatures to your home.

With the availability of these services, you can get away with buying a less expensive AC unit because the Aeroseal will make up for the lower efficiency rates.

Lowered Energy Bills

It is not a secret that duct leaks create higher energy bills because they cause the AC to work harder than necessary. With Aeroseal, cooled air will flow directly into your home without escaping through cracks or gaps. As a result, you will be getting the most out of your AC without having to pay exorbitant energy bills.

How To Prepare Your Home For Fall

How To Prepare Your Home For Fall

It is not a secret that winters in Alabama can be quite chilly.  As the fall and winter seasons approach, it is important to make some necessary preparations in order to prepare your home for the winter months. Some of those preparations involve preparing your furnace for the winter months. 

In this article, we outline the benefits of furnace repair and how to best prepare your HVAC system for the colder months. Read on to learn how to ensure a warm and comfortable home all season long. 

Benefits of Routine Furnace Repair

The use of the furnace is always key to a warm and cozy atmosphere when it is cold and frigid outside. Simple repairs and tune ups will allow you to get the most out of your heating system without running into more costly and extensive repairs. A thorough maintenance check normally consists of cleaning the HVAC system, filters, and coils to ensure HVAC efficiency. 

Some people choose to perform maintenance checks themselves, but not everyone is skilled and educated enough in furnace repairs. Therefore, we encourage you to contact your local furnace repair service like Hansen Air Pros, who will set you on the right path for a comfortable winter. 

How to Winterize the AC System

As you prepare your home for another winter season, there are certain steps you can take to prepare your AC for the cold months. If you choose to take on the task of winterizing your AC on your own, here are a few things you will need to:

  • Find the pipes and drain lines connected to your unit and empty them. Doing so will ensure that they won’t freeze during the cold season. 
  • Check and refill the refrigerant levels if needed.
  • Check the belts and pulleys and reposition or tighten them if needed. 
  • Inspect and clean the ducts of any dust and debris. 
  • Clean the coils by removing any dust and debris. 

Sounds like quite a few steps, right? This task list will be made easy with the help of your local furnace repair techs.

Once the cleaning portion of the inside of the unit and ducts is complete, you will also need to prepare the area around the outdoor unit as well. 

  • Clean the area around the outdoor condenser unit. Remove all toys, equipment, dust, and debris on and around the unit. Make sure nothing is sitting on top of the unit as well. 
  • Trim down any plants and rake away fallen leaves within a 4 ft. radius around the unit. 
  • Protect the unit from the cold elements by covering it with a tarp or its specially manufactured cover.

We wrote a more detailed blog post on how to prepare your HVAC for the fall season. Check it out on our website!

Additional Furnace Prep Steps

To ensure that your furnace works well and without a hitch all winter long, the techs at Hansen Air Pros recommend checking the following items: 

  • Check your filters! Are they clean? It is recommended to clean or replace air filters at least every 90 days to ensure efficient airflow and optimized air quality. 
  • Check the age of your furnace! The average lifespan of a furnace is 10-15 years, depending on the manufacturer. If you noticed an increase in furnace repairs or an increase in energy bills during winter months, it may be time to replace the furnace. 
  • Check the thermostat for proper calibration and battery supply. There’s nothing like a failing thermostat in the dead of winter, so ensure that the thermostat is ready to serve you year round. Though replacing batteries is fairly easy, checking the calibration may require an expert’s help. 

Furnace repair is available at a high quality and affordable price through Hansen Air Pros. Most furnace repairs can benefit from a good cleaning. Check out our blog on how to clean a furnace or heat pump.

What is an AC Capacitor?

What is an AC Capacitor?

The world of air conditioning is complex and foreign to most homeowners. However, having a basic knowledge of its various components can serve you well when things begin to break down. One of those components is the AC capacitors. 

The highly trained technicians at Hansen Air compiled this article that defines what AC capacitors are and their integral role in the function of your HVAC system. We also provide a quick overview that indicates when your capacitor needs replacement. 

The Importance of AC Capacitors

AC capacitors are a special set of electrons located on the inside of your unit that provide the energy your AC needs to start its operation. Capacitors are made up of two metal conductors that have a piece of insulating material in the middle. As the AC runs, they store energy inside their battery-shaped units. This stored energy is then used to power the AC up when you turn it on. In essence, AC capacitors are like car batteries; without them, your AC units will not run. 

If you’re having trouble starting your AC, it may be an indication of a needed repair. Check out the blog post to learn about some of the other signs that your HVAC system needs repair

Start vs. Run AC Capacitors

Capacitors are different from one unit to the next but in general, there are start and run AC capacitors. Let’s take a look at how these two types of capacitors differ. 

Start Capacitors

The role of these capacitors is to provide the required energy to your unit to begin cooling your home.

Run Capacitors

Once the start capacitors provide the AC with that first burst of energy, the run capacitor takes over to provide a continued supply of energy that allows the air in your home to remain cool. 

Both capacitors work together to provide the cooling effect we so desire throughout the hot summer days. Usually, these capacitors are installed individually in the AC but a dual capacitor is also available. Whether you have a single or dual AC capacitor will depend on the design of your unit and your technician’s recommendations. 

Reasons For an AC Capacitors Replacement

As with anything else in the home, AC capacitors do require replacement from time to time. The time frame between each replacement varies based on a couple of factors which are broken down below. 

Overexposure to Heat

Heat is what damages a capacitor the most. And yes, that sounds pretty ironic considering that ACs are designed to shield us from the heat. But it’s not the heat of our homes that capacitors are damaged by, but by the sun rays beating down on the outdoor unit all day. 

During the hot summer months, it is important to ensure that your outdoor unit is shaded away from the sun. Overexposure to the heat causes the AC capacitors to work harder, which shortens their lifespan. 

Voltage Rating

The voltage rating of your capacitor has to be chosen appropriately to the size of your unit. Though a smaller voltage rating won’t damage the unit, its lifespan will be significantly shorter than the capacitor that is chosen by your technician. Make sure to consult a professional before choosing a capacitor yourself. Choosing an incorrect voltage rating will hurt you financially in the long run. 

Its Age

Clearly, we now see that AC capacitors are great. But as with anything great in life, they do have a lifespan. As they approach the end of their lifespan, they begin to break down and fail. Sometimes no matter what you do, the capacitor will need to be replaced simply because it is the time to do so. 

During each maintenance visit, AC technicians check the capacitors to ensure that they are in optimal working order for the upcoming season. If needed, they will recommend and perform a replacement in accordance with the homeowner’s wishes. Check out our blog to learn about more benefits of having an AC maintenance plan in place.

Upgrade Your House with Smart HVAC

Upgrade Your House with Smart HVAC

Technology has come a long way and has evolved in a spectacular way. There are various ways people use technology to ease their life. There are multi-cookers that you can control on an app from work, and there are cars that you can start with the push of a button on your key. 

Today, we will explore the beauty and benefits of upgrading to a smart HVAC in your home. We will define what a smart system is and review the benefits it offers. 

Are you in the market for a new AC unit? Check out our blog on the key things to know before buying your new AC unit. 

What Is A Smart HVAC?

A smart HVAC system is built to connect to the network in your home to allow you full control of the temperature in your home. It allows you to have more precise temperatures that are tailored to your preferences and needs. A smart HVAC comes with an app that connects to your thermostat and gives you the ability to make adjustments while sitting on your couch. 

There are several smart HVAC products that offer supreme benefits to your home. Below, we provide a quick overview of these products. 

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats come highly recommended by Energy Saver and other authoritative voices on energy and HVAC products. These thermostats are programmable to the tee and allow you to set your own temperature preferences. Most smart thermostats operate only when people are in the house and only when you want them to operate. You are able to turn your thermostat on with the help of an app on your phone and get notifications about energy usage. 

How’s that for a smart HVAC system? To learn more about smart thermostats, check out our blog on the 12 benefits of getting a smart thermostat in your home. 

Smart Vents

Now if you think smart thermostats are cool, wait till you learn about smart vents. These vents are built with special sensors that detect activity in a room. Based on their detection, they will do their part to redirect air where there is more activity going on. For example, they will redirect air from an empty room to a room that is actually being used at the moment. 

Smart Humidifiers and Air Purifiers

If you’re looking for ways to enhance your indoor air quality with smart HVAC products, we encourage you to check out smart humidifiers and air purifiers. The humidifiers and air purifiers have the innate ability to detect poor air quality and work to enhance it. If your room is too humid, they will extract the humidity. Air purifiers will clean the air of odors and bacteria, allowing you to enjoy a safe and comfortable home.

Smart Window Treatments

Now, this smart home feature makes us giddy. Did you know that you can also get smart window treatments for your home? As you upgrade your air conditioning unit to a smart HVAC, consider upgrading to smart windows and electronic window shades as well. 

Smart windows and smart electronic window shades also connect to the network of your HVAC system. Together with the AC unit, they will close or open automatically according to your set temperature preferences. 

These smart window treatments will help maintain your HVAC’s efficiency and prolong its life span. Plus, you get the benefit of enjoying consistent and preferred temperatures in your home with little to no effort on your part.

The Importance Of Heating And Air Conditioning Maintenance

The Importance Of Heating And Air Conditioning Maintenance

It seems that the AC is working just, doesn’t it? So why schedule a maintenance visit when there is little reason to do so? This question is very valid and has a very good explanation. 

Whether there is a change in seasons or a new baby in the home, ensuring that your heating and air conditioning system is in proper order is very important. There are several benefits to doing so and we will outline them below. 

Better Air Quality

Good air quality is important for the health and wellness of all the residents of your home. If you have a new baby or a loved one with a compromised immune system or upper respiratory issues, air quality should be at the forefront of your concerns. 

Air quality is often decreased because of clogged air filters and ducts. These parts of the AC unit accumulate dust and debris. Because air passes through them, it gets infiltrated with all particles that decrease its quality. 

An AC repair technician will be able to spot these problems during their inspection. Air conditioning repair techs are equipped with the training and resources to make the necessary adjustments and cleaning. This will ensure that you and your loved ones are breathing easily and safely. 

Hansen Air Pros offer Indoor Air Quality services at affordable rates. Click here to learn more. 

Maintain Good Efficiency

A regular maintenance visit from your air conditioning service company will ensure that your AC isn’t working harder than necessary. Bad efficiency means that the HVAC system uses more energy to heat or cool your home. Not only does this increase your bills, but it also decreases the lifespan of your unit.

Maybe there is a loose part or an issue with the motor that needs fixing. All of these factors will need to be investigated by a trustworthy technician who can make these repairs.

Save Money In The Long Run

Along the same lines of maintaining the good efficiency of your HVAC system, regular maintenance visits also save you money in the long run. Let’s face it: in today’s inflated economy, extra repairs or even HVAC replacements are burdensome for many people.

Hansen Air Pros is equipped with skilled technicians and tools to help you pinpoint the areas of improvement in your HVAC system. These improvements will enhance its efficiency, allowing you to enjoy a comfortable home environment with minimal repairs and lower energy bills. As prices rise, we must cut corners somewhere, so this is a win-win for everyone.

Speaking of rising prices, did you know that Hansen Air Pros offer financing options for new AC installations? Click here to learn more about our financing service options. 

Prolong The Use Of Your HVAC System

Lastly, the most important reason to keep up with the maintenance of your heating and air conditioning system is to prolong its use. A well-maintained unit can last up to two decades in your home, providing you with lasting comfort through the seasons. 

Very few people get excited over spending thousands of dollars on new HVAC units. When problems arise but go unnoticed, the unit has to work harder to maintain the temperatures in your home. This causes it to break down faster and eventually stop working. A sooner HVAC replacement will be inevitable with poor maintenance. 

When was the last time your AC got a good once-over from an HVAC repair technician? Hansen Air Pros is one of the best HVAC companies serving Mobile, AL, and its surrounding areas. Contact us, the best HVAC repair service in Mobile, AL, to schedule your maintenance visit today. 

Why Not to Delay HVAC Repair in Biloxi

Why Not to Delay HVAC Repair in Biloxi

Biloxi is known for its intense summer heat and humidity. You don’t want to deal with an HVAC breakdown then or any other time of the year. Whether there are signs HVAC repair is needed or a maintenance technician finds a small issue, here are reasons not to delay HVAC repair in Biloxi.

More Serious Damage Can Occur

A faulty blower, worn out fan, or clogged filter or duct can strain your HVAC system. The issue at hand may not be so terrible. But fixing it is simple compared to the trouble you may face by procrastinating. A major air conditioner or heater breakdown can cost you thousands of dollars.

Your AC/Heater Is Less Likely to Break Down

Homeowners often feel a system breakdown was unexpected. But usually, a problem has been festering for some time, leading to a cascade of failures that led to an HVAC unit not working. If you avoid delaying a repair, you can schedule a repair visit in time (hopefully your AC contractor offers 24/7 emergency service). At Hansen Air Pros, we’re always available, and stock all the replacement parts needed on our trucks and in our warehouse to complete repairs quickly.

You Can Save Money

A minor fix may cost a couple hundred dollars, but that pales in comparison to a major repair or replacement. Any type of issue can reduce an HVAC unit’s efficiency, including a dirty air filter. Once the issue is resolved, your system will be more cost-effective to run.

You Won’t Void the Warranty

Most HVAC manufacturer’s warranties require units to be properly maintained. If not, you risk voiding the warranty and having to pay the full cost of service. That goes for scheduling prompt repairs as well. You’ll maintain warranty coverage (if your system is still under warranty), and the repair costs will be taken care of.

An Air Conditioner or Furnace Can Last Longer

It’s often said an AC or furnace might last 10 to 15 years. But in reality, there’s no expiration date. With proper maintenance and prompt repairs, a system can last several years longer than it otherwise would. It will also run more efficiently during that time, saving fuel, energy, and money.

You Don’t Risk Declines in Comfort

Your HVAC unit can gradually decline in performance before it finally breaks down. Until then, you may have sleepless nights that can be more pleasant and restful if you don’t delay HVAC repair. Hot air can be uncomfortable and unhealthy. There may also be humidity and air quality issues to deal with if the system isn’t fixed.

Poor Air Quality Can Put Your Health at Risk

Dust, pollen, and particulates can increase allergies and be very irritating. A malfunctioning HVAC system can also lead to mold, which can have a variety of health effects. If your air conditioner isn’t working right, the air won’t be as clean as it should be. When a furnace isn’t running properly, you can have poor air quality plus the risk of carbon monoxide in your home.
