At AJ’s Air, the best AC service in Orlando, Florida, we advise you on everything that you need to know about air conditioners. This time, we decided to make a list of the most frequently asked questions about air conditioning.

Does the refrigerant gas contaminate?

The refrigerants that are used in the air conditioning equipment have a reduced environmental impact and are not toxic. Companies tend to be increasingly committed to the environment and try to harm it as little as possible, so they often use refrigerants such as R-410A and R-407C.

Should the air conditioning be used combined?

In this case, the answer is positive. Combining the function of our air conditioning with other household appliances, such as ceiling fans, can offer significant support to our air conditioner, which will extend its lifetime considerably. You can also alternate to give a break to the cooling device and prevent it from running too many hours in a row.

Are refrigeration equipment harmful to health?

Quite the opposite. If the system has a correct installation, it should help to filter the air that enters the room where it is placed. These air conditioning systems are prepared to control both humidity and air circulation, in addition to removing harmful particles that are in it.

Can the outdoor units be hidden?

Due to the lack of aesthetics of outdoor units, many people want to cover or hide them. This is possible as long as special attention is paid to the manufacturer’s instructions on the ventilation requirements.

How can consumption be reduced?

All air conditioning equipment include a series of recommendations for use. These recommendations are the ones that will give the necessary keys to reduce the energy consumption and achieve a good saving in the electricity bill.

How long does an air conditioner last?

The duration of the equipment varies depending on its use. The industrial average indicates that they usually last between 12 and 15 years if the professional maintenance and the necessary revisions are carried out annually. It should be noted that this type of equipment lasts less if they are in coastal areas.

Is it normal for the air conditioner to work continuously?

Normally, no. If the air conditioner works constantly, and the place has not reached the temperature that has been programmed, it is because it is not working as it should. If this happens, you should check the temperature of the air that enters the equipment, because if the equipment does not cool at least fifteen degrees is because it does not work properly, and you should contact a technician. If, on the contrary, the air works and cools correctly, the problem may be that it does not have enough power to acclimate the room in which it is located.
