Summers are long and hot, and your AC unit works hard to keep your house cool. If you have noticed your system isn’t working as efficiently as before, it could be an indication that a service appointment is in order. Efficiency can often be a slow decline that you may not notice. Think back to when your AC unit was brand new. How does it compare to its cooling ability today? A/C Re-New is a product that can restore your unit back to its glory days!
How to know if your AC needs help
Did you know that a ten-year-old AC unit can be 20-30% less efficient than when it was new? That is a significant drop. How can you tell?
• It just can’t keep up. Your unit seems to run constantly and has a hard time cooling your house to the preferred temperature.
• Indoor vents are blowing tepid or warm air.
• The AC outside unit has grown increasingly louder over the years.
• Energy bill has increased year after year.
What is A/C Re-New?
Just like using an oil additive in your automobile to protect its moving parts and to clean out the buildup of particles, A/C Re-New does the same for your air conditioner. It’s a synthetic oil that is injected into your air conditioner that mixes with the system’s existing oil and refrigerant, providing many added benefits. After years of use, oil from the AC compressor can build up in the line through which refrigerant flows. This buildup creates a barrier reducing the ability of the refrigerant to absorb heat from the air. It also reduces the amount of refrigerant travelling through the line. Your AC will have to work that much harder and longer to create the cooling level you prefer. This, in turn, increases wear and tear, decreasing the life of your unit and increasing the energy bills you pay every month.
A/C Re-New, how does it help?
When A/C Re-New is added to your system, it chemically breaks down the oil buildup on the inside of the refrigerant line. This essentially cleans your whole system by removing that oil barrier which is reducing efficiency. In addition, A/C Re-New coats the line, preventing oil build-up in the future. This makes it perfect for old and new systems. While travelling through your HVAC system, is also lubricates moving parts, reducing friction which is often the cause of a loud outdoor unit. Your AC with be more efficient, use less energy, provide cooler air, run quieter, last longer and run less. How can you go wrong?
After a few months of gruelling heat, if your AC isn’t working as well as it used to, call(402) 477-1371 or contact Bill’s Heating and Air Conditioning to schedule a service appointment and be sure to ask for A/C Re-New.
