The relatively good economic conditions in Hutto have allowed homeowners to purchase and install air conditioner units in their houses and offices. These air conditioner units have been beneficial to them as they have made their daily lives more comfortable. However, it is not uncommon for these cooling systems to experience some AC problems. There are five common air conditioner problems that the people in Hutto, Texas encounter.

AC Installation in Round Rock

Round Rock is a city found in Texas that is home to over 99, 887 people, according to the 2010 consensus. It is found in Williamson County. This area is also known to be the 35th largest metropolitan area in the country. The geographical location of Round Rock gives the city varying temperatures throughout the year. There are months when the city experiences humid days and there are months when the city experiences rather colder weather. The changes in the temperatures have forced people to install AC units in their homes and offices in order to bear the weather. Round Rock experiences an average high of 96 degrees Fahrenheit and an average low of 72 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer - so as you can see, an air conditioner is necessary.

Most people hire professionals in order to get a new AC installed. One of the most common types of ACs used is the split system, and this is a cooling system that needs to be set up by the professionals.

The first part of the AC installation is installing the indoor unit. You must find an unobstructed location, particularly a wall, where you can properly mount your AC. The wall has to be strong enough to support the weight of the AC. Otherwise; the HVAC professional might need to install a wood to support its weight. You must avoid heat sources, direct sunlight, or areas where gas may leak. The next thing that you must do is drill holes into the wall in order to place the mounting plate which will support the unit. The plastic anchors must be inserted into the holes with taping screws. You also need to drill a hole that is about 7.5 centimeters in diameter for the piping. Check the electrical connections of your AC unit to ensure that they match the ones provided for in the diagram. Then connect the pipes to your AC unit from the outside of the house. Lastly, secure your AC unit by pressing it into the mounting plate.

For the outdoor condenser, you need to choose a location that is away from dusty or hot areas. The first thing to do is to lay the pad on a level ground. The outdoor condenser will be set on top of the pad. It would also be better if you use rubber cushioning under its feet in order to minimize vibrations. Then connect all electrical wires. Make sure that you follow all the instructions since this part is crucial to get your AC unit working. Finally, secure the flare nuts of the pipes to the corresponding pipes found on the outdoor unit.

To ensure there will be no problems and that your AC unit will be fully functional, there are three more things that you need to do. First is to check that the heat and humidity from the refrigerant circuit will be properly exhausted. Second is to wrap insulating conductor and tape around the piping. Third is to use clamps in order to fix the piping to the wall. Finally, use expanding polyurethane foam to seal up the hole on the wall.

Furnace Control Board

The particular call was called by a customer in Round Rock that said her furnace would not come on nor the AC. We went immediately to the board indicating a lock out on based on the number of flashes. I reset the switch on the furnace so it can reset and it started it's course to try and heat. After it's 90 second delay of the blower running, the inducer came on, the click on the control board never ignited the spark ignitor. Of course if you been doing this line you know right away when it cycles and how it cycles. I did a volt check to find the control board bad. Now this is not for someone who doesn't understand or who is not trained. A professional is recommended for this line of work; It is simply a heads up for customers to get a better idea in what they are up against. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call!

Frozen Outdoor Heat Pump Systems

If the any of these items are not working they don't not allow system to go into a defrost mode and therefore not allowing your unit not work properly. Keep in mind Heat pumps DO NOT WORK in freezing temperatures. It cannot bring the heat from the outside Ambient air into your home which is why the Aux Heat will kick in.
