Mitsubishi and Goodman.
Depending on the system, level of customization, features, and size of home and unit(s). Cost can range from $2500.00 (for a single head Mistubishi mini split for a single room) and up. National average $7000.00.
As an Elite Diamond dealer we offer 5 year for labor, and 12 year for parts on all Mitsubishi Systems. Other systems vary by manufacturer.
S.E.E.R. stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It is the calculated energy consumption of an air conditioner. The S.E.E.R. rating starts at 14 and goes up, 14 being the standard. Presently you may find systems up to 22 S.E.E.R. ratings in conventional with Mitsuishi reaching as high as 44 S.E.E.R.
General savings would be around 30% for a 10-year-old system; this also various from unit to unit, based on S.E.E.R. and Consumption of Electricity based on each home’s usage and price per kilowatt from the electric company.
It is the coil that is installed on the supply air side of the furnace or air handler. In most models the coil is built in the form of the capital letter “A”. Its function is to change the refrigerant from a liquid to a gas causing a cooling effect. This coil becomes very cold and as the warmer air from the home blows over it, the air becomes cooled and water in the air is removed.
It is the part of the a/c system that sits outside. After the evaporator coil turns the refrigerant liquid into a gas, the condenser condenses the refrigerant back into a liquid. It is also where the compressor is located that pumps the refrigerant back and forth to and from the evaporator coil.
It is what pumps the refrigerant back and forth from the condenser to the evaporator coil. It is the “heart” located in the condensing unit.
Remember that heat rises and there is a large heat load on the roof of your home. Unless you have a separate system for the second floor, the thermostat will be located on the 1st floor. When the temperature on the 1st floor satisfies, the thermostat turns the a/c system off. If the thermostat is on the first floor it can’t recognize the warmer 2nd floor. Proper attic insulation, correctly sized ductwork and zoning may help the temperature difference.
No. If the a/c is too large, it will “short cycle” resulting in loss of proper humidity removal. Also, it will cool the house too quickly. This will make the house feel cool but damp causing mildew issues. It will also shorten the life of the unit.
A standard installation takes 6 to 8 hours.
R-410A is the earth friendly “green” coolant that has replaced R-22. Since 2010 the federal law requires that R-22 be phased out.
R-22 is currently being phased out as a common refrigerant.
Normal operating hours are Monday-Friday 8am-5pm with emergency service available.
30 days for labor, and 1 year for parts.
It is recommended that you have a qualified technician look at your system 2 times per year during the spring and fall.
All makes and models.
Technicians carry a wide variety of parts on his truck, however if additional parts are needed, they are ordered from the factory.
The most common reason for water discharging from the air handler is the drain line is clogged. This may not always be the case but this is the most common occurrence.
Compressor failure can be caused by several issues such as: age, power spikes, power failures, low refrigerant, poor installation practices and lack of maintenance. A proper diagnosis will determine the cause of the compressor failure.
The air handler is the inside unit usually installed in the garage, attic, interior closet, or in the crawl space under the home. The condenser is the unit on the outside of the home. If you have a package unit, you will only have the outside equipment.
