Monday, April 10th, 2017

Installing an air conditioner is a pretty big investment, so it’s natural to want to get the most out of it by making the system last for as many years as possible. However, even with careful maintenance and prompt repairs, all things must end. Summer’s not far off now, and you don’t want to be caught without a working air conditioning system when it gets here. If your current air conditioner won’t be able to cut it over the next few months, you should replace it now so you don’t have to deal with it breaking down later. There are a number of warning signs that your air conditioner is reaching the end of its life.

Is My Air Conditioning System Ready for Replacement?

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

The advances in air conditioning technology over the last few decades are astonishing. You may want to take advantage of these leaps with a replacement system in your home to help make the Texas weather more bearable. However, getting a new air conditioner is a major step; installation requires time and professional work in order to get done properly. Before you settle on a replacement, consider some of the signs that may indicate your older system is ready to get swapped out. If a replacement is the best choice, put the job in our hands. PRK Services, Inc. handles Flower Mound, TX air conditioning replacements that will suit your needs

You should first take into account the age of your current system. Although modern air conditioners can provide many years of solid cooling, they wear down over time like any hardworking machine. If your AC was already in place when you moved into your home, it might have years of service behind it. Older systems will usually have manual thermostats with sliders instead of digital ones with pinpoint temperature accuracy. Pay particular attention to signs of trouble with an aging air conditioner, and if repairs start to pile up, it may be time for a replacement. However, if your system is only a few years old, repairs are probably a better choice than a complete replacement.

Look over your last year of electricity bills. A spike in costs usually means a repair that needs to be done to the AC, and not something that requires getting a new system. However, if you see an unexplained rise in your bills that continues even with repairs, then it may be a warning that your AC is coming to the end of its lifespan and cannot work at the same level it used to.

A poorly functioning air conditioner will no longer get your home as cool as it once did. If particular spots in your home feel warmer than others, you might look toward issues with the vents or the ducts. Problems that develop in ductwork are usually not pointers toward a failing air conditioner. A house-wide increase in temperature is a more worrying sign. Although other factors might be involved, if uneven heat occurs in conjunction with the problems above, it’s time to call in a professional to get an informed opinion on whether replacement is the best route.

PRK Services, Inc. has experience offering those opinions. For Flower Mound, TX air conditioning services and expert advice, look to us when you think your AC is ready for replacement.

My Air Conditioning System Has a Hard Time Starting Up: What Should I Do?

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Living in Texas is great, but even those of us that love the heat the most enjoy a reliable respite from the heat. A high-quality air conditioning system is one of the most important investments that a homeowner can make here. Of course, no air conditioning system is perfect. Even the best AC systems can encounter a variety of different operational problems. Just like a lawnmower that won’t start on the first pull, an AC that has a hard time starting up can be a serious inconvenience.

Here are a few tips as to why your air conditioning in Corinth, TX has trouble getting going.

If your air conditioner fails to start up or starts and then promptly shuts back down, it may be that the circuit it is on cannot handle the electrical demand necessitated by the system. If this is the case, you have probably noticed that your circuit breaker trips with some regularity. You may need to designate a circuit for your system or call a professional electrician to find a solution. Alternatively, if your electrical system should be able to provide the needed juice, there may be a problem with an electrical component in your system.

In your air conditioning system, there are devices known as capacitors. Not all systems have two, but there are both start capacitors and run capacitors. The start capacitor gives the compressor an extra boost of power to get going, while the run capacitor keeps it going as long as needed. If these, or any other vital electrical component, should fail or malfunction, then you cannot expect a reliable performance from your air conditioning system. Contact an air conditioning repair technician with the skills and qualifications necessary to protect your comfort throughout the cooling season.

For more information about why your air conditioning system has trouble starting up, call PRK Services, Inc. Our Corinth, TX air conditioning professionals have the answers you need to determine the exact cause of your problems. Your comfort is our top priority, and we can resolve the issue promptly for minimum disruption to your AC service.

Why Is My Air Conditioning Only Cooling Certain Parts of My Home?

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

When you run your air conditioning system you expect it to cool your entire house. But if you notice that your AC is only cooling certain parts of your house it can be frustrating and also uncomfortable. In this blog post, we wanted to put together a quick explanation of what might be causing this issue. If you’re having this problem at your home call the Corinth, TX air conditioning repair technicians at PRK Services, Inc.

Corinth, TX Air Conditioning Tips: Why Isn’t My Whole Home Getting Cool?

Are only certain parts of your house getting cool? This is a common problem that has a few common causes. Take a look below at what might be the source of this issue and then call for professional Corinth, TX air conditioning repair.

  • Clogged air filter – Probably the most common cause of air conditioning issues is as clogged air filter. Your AC has an air filter in it that protects the internal components from dust and dirt. If it gets clogged it will restrict the flow of air through the system. This means that the cool air will only be able to travel to the rooms closest to the air handler leaving the rest of your house hot.
  • Oversized or undersized AC – One common mistake that homeowners make is that they buy an air conditioner that is too small or too large for their home. If your AC is too large for your home the air conditioner will only operate for short periods of time which means that it will only cool a small part of the house. If your AC is too small, it simply won’t have the power to push the cool air to all the parts of your house.
  • Evaporator coils – One of the key components to your air conditioning system are the evaporator coils that are located in the inside unit of your AC system. If they get dirty or covered in dust and bacteria, it can keep them from properly cooling the air that moves into your home.
  • Fan motor – Your home’s air conditioning system relies on a fan motor to push the cooled air through your home’s ductwork. If the fan motor starts to break down it could hinder the ability of your fan to push enough air into your home. This could cause only certain parts of your home to get enough cool air.
