Everyone in a home or office understand just how important it is for them to ‘keep their cool’ during the hot summer months. A properly working air conditioning system can guarantee that everyone in your home or office is comfortable, and that the air is cool and clean whenever the temperatures rise. Therefore, an air conditioning system that is not functioning properly during a heat wave qualifies as an emergency. It is important to contact a professional HVAC technician to repair or replace your air conditioning unit. The following is an overview of proper air conditioning maintenance, repair and replacement, as well as the types of units that are available for your home or office.
Air conditioning servicing or maintenance
It is important for all property owners to service their air conditioning units before the summer months. You should call a technician to ensure that your HVAC is working properly. Calling a technician before the summer months means that you will get more attentive and flexible service. Furthermore, you will be ready to tackle the summer heat once the season begins. Our qualified technicians will check your filters and the ducts, and ensure that the motor is well lubricated. It is important to service your unit at least once a year. Servicing can be cost effective, and you will avert the need for costly and emergency repairs. Other services that JC’s Heating and Air offers when maintaining your HVAC system include:

Air Conditioning Replacement
An air conditioning unit is supposed to serve your heating and cooling needs for a maximum of about 15 years. Therefore, your HVAC system may not be functioning properly because it has already run its course and needs to be replaced. A new HVAC system should be energy and cost friendly, and it should meet all the specific needs of your home or office. The following are some of the units that JC’s Heating and Air might recommend:
Central air conditioners: This is a very convenient and efficient unit which supplies cool air through the various ducts and registers in the home. These supply and return ducts could be in the ceiling, walls, or floors. They are efficient because they cool the entire house, and not just a single room.
Ductless air conditioning system: This is ideal for people who do not have any ducts in their house, and who want to cool a particular zone or room in their home or office. These systems are usually small and very flexible, and they are meant to cool a particular room or area.
Down flow systems: These systems are usually very common in server rooms and data centers. The system is usually placed around the perimeter of the server room or data center. The cool air will flow through the grilles in order to cool the hardware cabinets. The hot air will go back to the top of the air conditioning unit.
Rooftop systems: This unit is placed on the roof, and it circulates cool air throughout the home or office via openings in the roof. It is popular with businesses, but a lot of residential homes are also using this system these days.
