Air Conditioner Repair
If your air conditioner runs all the time without reaching the desired temperature you may have a problem with the refrigerant charge in your outdoor unit. Our technicians have the expertize to adjust the refrigerant level of your air conditioner. We carry R-22 (freon) and R-410a (puron). Air conditioners are complex systems. In order for them to work they need to be properly sized. If an air conditioner is sized too small it will not cool the house on really hot days. Too big and it will cycle on and off more than it should which will shorten the life of the air conditioner.
Air conditioners are designed to have certain amount of air flow through the indoor coil. Issues with fans, blowers, filters, return air, and freezing can affect the flow of this air. If your air conditioner is acting up or is just not working at all give us a call. In many cases we can provide options to improve your HVAC system so that it will run more efficiently and break down less often. We know that there are many companies for air conditioner repair in Utah. Call us today and find out why thousands of home owners have chosen Humphrey Heating and Air.

The R 22 Phase Out
Most central air systems installed before 2011 used R 22 refrigerant which is also known as freon. This type of refrigerant is being phased out due to its harmful effect on the ozone layer. Central air systems manufactured since 2011 use R 410a refrigerant which is also known as puron. Supplies of R 22 will become limited over time. The cost of this refrigerant has skyrocketed and will no longer be produced after 2020. If you have a central air system which is low on R 22 refrigerant it is in your best interest to make sure the technician servicing your system finds the source of the leak and repairs it as opposed to just topping it off.
What to check before you call
If your air conditioner is not working it may be something simple that does not require a technician. If nothing is coming on check to make sure the switch is on at the furnace and that the breaker is on. Also check the outside breaker and make sure that is on as well. If your thermostat flashes a battery icon try replacing them. Air conditioners that freeze up may just need a clean filter. Let your central air thaw out by turning it off for a few hours if it’s frozen then run it with a clean filter to see if that solves the problem. If not you will need a repair which we would be happy to help you with. Give us a call and we will send out a friendly and knowledgeable technician to diagnose the problem.
