When your home or business requires a new air conditioner, call or fill out our online form and we will schedule a comfort analysis in order to determine the best solution for your needs.
Below is some information that may help you understand a little more about air conditioning and refrigerants.
Have you ever asked your auto mechanic or doctor about their diagnosis, and the answers they gave you sounded like something from a different language? You want them to trans-late what they just said into English, but you don’t want to appear foolish. The home comfort industry has its own specialized vocabulary, too. To help you better understand the language of our business, we’ve put together a list of common terms. Knowing what these terms mean will help us communicate with one another better. You’ll also be able to make informed decision when you are ready to install or upgrade home comfort equipment.
This is an acronym for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. It’s an abbreviated way of describing the services we offer.
Two-Speed Air Conditioning
Today's air conditioners are adaptable to indoor comfort demands and outdoor weather realities. Two speed air conditioners ensure that you are getting optimum efficiency, humidity control and comfort whether it is 78°F or 98°F outside.
This stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; Each SEER represents the number of BTU’s of cooling per watt of electricity used. The more cooling you can get out of a watt of electricity, the less you’ll spend. So the higher the SEER, the more efficient a cooling system will be. If you sys-tem is less than a 14 SEER, you may benefit from an up-grade.
Often times, the actual SEER in a home is much lower than rated. Poor air conditioner efficiency results in a higher electric bill because of improper design and/or installation. This is much like miles per gallon (MPG) for a vehicle. Maximum MPG is only achieved under optimal conditions.
Pullen’s service technicians are some of the best in the industry. We provide a thorough consultation to ensure that your A/C system is operating properly, maximizing the efficiency and life span of your air conditioning unit. This assures a high SEER rating for your home, reducing your monthly power bill.
Also known as the compressor, this is the outdoor unit of your central air system.
Sizing a system
This refers to the BTU output. The purpose of sizing is to maximize comfort and efficiency. This is just one way we figure out how much BTU “power” your home’s heating and cooling system needs.
Manual J-Load determines a building's heat gain and heat loss to ensure installation of properly sized air conditioning and heating equipment.
This is an acronym for British Thermal Unit. It can be used to describe the energy content of different heating fuels. However, we use BTU to describe the power of heating and cooling systems.
