How Often Do I Need to Change My AC’s Air Filter?

Monday, July 20th, 2015

One question our Certified Air Systems, Inc., experts get asked a lot is, “do I have to change my air filter?” The answer is unequivocally “yes!” Then comes the follow-up question: how often do I have to change it?

Why Your Air Conditioner Needs Refrigerant

Monday, June 15th, 2015

The cooling process is an interesting one, largely because it relies on a single chemical that changes states very easily: the refrigerant. While Freon was formerly used as a refrigerant, today’s refrigerant, also known as R-22, is a much more environmentally friendly option. Why is refrigerant so important? In short, because it facilitates the transfer of heat from your home. While air conditioners appear to cool a space by blowing cool air into it, what your AC actually does is remove heat and humidity and replaces it with cooled air – thanks to refrigerant. (more…)

Why Is There Frost on My Air Conditioner?

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Frost and frozen condensate build-up rank among the most common air conditioning problems reported in Orlando, FL, which can seem counter-intuitive on the surface. “Doesn’t frost build-up mean that it’s really cold?” When you add Orlando’s famous humidity to the mix – creating condensation on AC units that can easily frost over – it seems almost like a natural state of affairs. In truth, however, frost on your air conditioner represents a serious problem, and the longer you let it go, the worse it gets. The answer to the question “why is their frost on my air conditioner?” explains a great deal. (more…)

Reasons to Consider Ductless Air Conditioning

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Are you building a new home, or need to replace an aging, outdated air conditioning system? You may want to consider the installation of a ductless AC. Ductless air conditioning is fast becoming a top choice for whole home air conditioning for several reasons, but excellent installation is the key. The air conditioning experts at Certified Air Systems, Inc., have been helping customers in the Orlando, FL, area with their air conditioning needs for over 20 years, including installation. So why should you consider a ductless air conditioner for your home? Let’s take a look.

Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning

Ductless air conditioning systems work by delivering air through indoor blowers that are supported by a single outdoor unit. The outdoor unit holds the compressor and condenser and can support up to 4 indoor blowers at a time. Each indoor blower operates separately, which brings us to our first great benefit: customized cooling. Indoor blowers operate individually, allowing you to cool an area just as you want to. You can also cool only the areas that you need to, which is a second benefit of a ductless AC system: better energy efficiency. When you cool only the areas that need it, you use less energy, thereby reducing your overall energy use. You also reduce the overall usage of your AC, which brings us to our third benefit: less stress on the system. A system that isn’t stressed works optimally, providing you with the comfort you need.

The lack of ductwork also provides some benefits. First, you don’t have to worry as much about air loss from faulty ductwork, which can greatly compromise your energy efficiency levels; second, you don’t have to worry about adding expensive ductwork to your home and lastly, expansion and installation can be easier with a ducted system because there is no ductwork to contend with.

Installing a new air conditioner can be a great opportunity to use a different whole house AC system that may fit your need better. Ready for a new AC? Call us today and schedule an appointment!
