The Entire Universe Raves About It
Most Long Island homes and businesses tackle the sweltering summer months with some sort of air-cooling system, usually a traditional central air conditioner unit or a heat pump. Both systems use compressed refrigerant to gather heat from inside of your residence as air passes over a coil in the air handler and moves it to the outside. They’re actually cooling your home by removing heat energy and not producing cold air. An air conditioner is a complex system with many parts, including a compressor, fan, condenser coil, evaporator coil and refrigerant. Larger heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems also include an outdoor compressor, indoor air handler and duct work.
It can be very confusing unless you’re an engineer specializing in HVAC design—or one of Gold Star’s highly trained cooling technicians. We are constantly sharpening our AC repair skills so we are able to service all makes and models and install air conditioners when that time arrives. When you enlist us to repair your air conditioner, we will diagnose the problem, thoroughly explain it, answer all of your questions and provide you with the options that best fit your budget. Our AC repairs will include no hidden costs; you’ll know exactly what you are getting and how much you will pay for it.
When Is It Time to Repair Your Air Conditioner?
Gold Star’s highly rated cooling team is ready day and night to repair your air conditioner if you encounter any of the following issues listed on the federal government’s energy website:
- Unit isn’t cooling properly. This could be a result of low or leaking refrigerant, thermostat issue, clogged outside drainage or dirty air filter.
- Unit isn’t turning on. Compressor and fan controls could be worn out from being overused or the thermostat needs new batteries or must be replaced.
- Limited airflow. Air ducts could be leaking or clogged, or the air filter is dirty and restricting the efficiency to cool the air.
- Unit is making unusually loud noises or vibrating. This is not normal and should be addressed immediately.
Gold Star’s been performing these important AC repairs for years, and nothing makes our locally owned, family-run company happier than seeing our neighbors living comfortably in their homes when it’s simply too hot to be outside. Leave the sweating to our licensed air conditioning repair pros to handle refrigerant and electrical problems. These AC repairs aren’t something you want to try by searching for solutions on YouTube. Switching out dirty air filters, yes; replacing refrigerant or compressor switches, no.
When Replacement Rather Than Repair Is the Smart Choice
The Department of Energy recommends replacing HVAC systems, of which air conditioning is a big part, every 15 years. You might’ve inherited an older model with a recent home purchase and factored installing a new air conditioner into your renovation budget. Or you might’ve gone to turn on your AC unit for the first time since the previous summer and nothing happened. Uh, oh. Time to contact Gold Star.
Our staff will listen to your air conditioning needs and present you with a detailed installation proposal. We’ll provide you with information to determine the right size for your new AC system. We’ll explain the pros and cons of a high-efficiency AC replacement versus a standard efficiency unit. We’ll discuss possible indoor air quality add-ons, such as humidifiers and high-efficiency air filtration before we install your air conditioner system.
