Afraid of Life Without AC

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.

Old Bones AC Looking For a New Life

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. 

Here's the Letter:

Dear Keven,

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?

Signed, 

Box Window AC Not an Option

Have you ever experienced random pools of water in your furnace room? We might have an answer as to why that’s happening! Keven provides some great insights as to what might be causing the mysterious leaks in your furnace room, how to find their source, and what to do if you see white or rusty build up on your furnace exhaust pipes. 

Follow these tips and schedule a yearly A+ Furnace Preventative maintenance to ensure you don’t have to deal with a leaking furnace! 

Here's this week's Dear Keven letter:

Dear Keven, 

I am at my wits end. We keep finding random, small amounts of water in my furnace room, and I can’t figure out where they are coming from. We don’t have a humidifier and I know that the hot water tank is not leaking. I thought that it might have been the pipes behind a wall with a slow leak. Once I ripped that apart, I discovered that they were fine.

Lately, we have had a couple of plumbers in and they can’t seem to figure it out either. My brother-in-law said that it might be the furnace, but I can’t imagine why. Do you think this may be the source? 

Signed, 

At My Wits End
