Now that you’ve got air conditioning, you never want to go a hot day without it again – we get it. But can a dirty AC condenser impact the functionality of your air conditioning? You bet it can.
Each week Acclaimed! posts a live video on Facebook responding to a common customer question or letter we receive from homeowners.
This week, Keven answers a letter from a homeowner “Afraid of Life Without AC”, wondering how important cleaning the AC condenser is. Keven notes that like anything involving a filter, AC condensers need to be cleaned regularly to ensure proper air flow to the unit. While homeowners can roughly clean their outside air conditioning units themselves, he does recommend getting a professional in every once in a while for a more thorough clean.

Refrigerant is an an integral ingredient to making your air conditioner run – but topping up the unit can get costly if you have an older unit that runs off of R22 or “Freon”.
Each week, Acclaimed! goes live on Facebook to answer a popular question we’ve received in the office or a letter a homeowner has sent in. This week, Tami and Keven answered a letter from a homeowner signed, “Old Bones AC” wondering if they could drain their older AC unit of R22 and replace it with the newer R410.
Keven responds by noting that unfortunately, older ACs still using R22 are not compatible with the newer, more environmentally and economically friendly refrigerant, R410. He recommends replacing your AC unit if possible, as the overall cost savings of a new unit will likely outweigh the repair costs of older air conditioners using R22 in the long run (especially since the cost of R22 is increasing rapidly as supplies depleat).

With spring in the air and warmer weather on the horizon, you may be starting to think about getting air conditioning for your home. This week, Keven discusses AC options for those whose homes do not run on a forced-air system. If you’re also against the clunky look of box window AC units, watch the Dear Keven Letter below to learn about your alternative options.
With summer approaching in the (hopefully) near future, my partner and I are starting to think about getting an air conditioner installed in our condo. Our building runs off of a central boiler and we have baseboard heating, so traditional central AC is not an option for us. I also don’t like the idea of having a clunky AC unit taking up my windows. Do you know of any other options that might be available for us?
Box Window AC Not an Option

Here is the latest letter from one of our readers:
How is important is it to cover the air conditioner outside for the winter. If figure since it is made for the outdoors it shouldn’t really matter, however my father in law suggests differently. Please advise.
Our latest live video features some more great advice and addresses one of the latest questions from our readers, “Dueling Couple”, wondering what’s the most efficient way to run an AC. Do you ever wonder what the best way to run your AC in the summer is? If you’d prefer to watch this video directly on youtube, click here.
I am hoping you can help my husband and I solve an argument on what is best for efficiently of running our ac. We both work during the day. We have ac and have a programmable thermostat.
During these hot days, one of us thinks that it is best to turn our ac off during the day completely and let the temperature rise in the house to 28-30 degrees during the day. Then have the ac set to go on at 4:30 to get it down to 22 degrees and go off in the morning.
The other one of us thinks it is best to have it set at 24 degrees during the day and have it set to pull it down to 22 degrees around 4:30.
Please help us settle this argument!
