How Boise Air Conditioners Work

When the temperature outside begins to climb, many people seek the cool comfort of their indoor Boise air conditioning unit. Air conditioners in Nampa and Air Conditioners in Caldwell are one of those things that we see every day but seldom pay much attention to.   Air conditioners in Meridian come in various sizes, cooling capacities, efficiencies and prices. Most commonly referred to as central air, an Boise air conditioning system which uses ducts to distribute cooled and/or dehumidified air to more than one room, or uses pipes to distribute chilled water to heat exchangers in more than one room, and which is not plugged into a standard electrical outlet.  With a typical split system, the Boise Air conditioners condenser and Nampa air conditioners compressor are located in an outdoor unit; the evaporator is mounted in the air handling unit (which is often a forced air furnace). With a package system, all components are located in a single outdoor unit that may be located on the ground or roof.

Outdoor air conditioner

Central air conditioning performs like a regular air conditioner but has several added benefits:

When the air handling unit or Furnace turns on, room air is drawn in from various parts of the building through return-air ducts. This air is pulled through a filter where airborne particles such as dust, lint and other contaminantes are removed. Sophisticated Air filters may remove microscopic pollutants and germs as well. The filtered air is routed to air supply ductwork that caries it back to rooms. Whenever the Boise air conditioner is running, this cycle of cleaning your air repeats continually. Because the central air conditioning unit is located outside the home, it offers a lower level of noise indoors than a free-standing or window air conditioning unit in Boise.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Boise Air conditioner maintenance is a very important item to remember even if you have to put it in your calender to remind you.  Drake Mechanical can also remind you of your Air Conditioning Maintenance if you need us to.  Plain and simple, Meridian Air conditioners get dirty.  When your Nampa air conditioner gets dirty it looses efficiency, costs you more money to run and can have issues like freezing up or cause a compressor to burn up.  Annual Boise Air conditioning maintenance is something that needs to be done each spring once the weather warms up enough that we can get good readings on the refrigerant and make sure everything from the air conditioners compressor motor, start capacitors and other parts are within the manufacturers tolerances so that you can stay cool all summer long.   We all know Murphys law, if it can break, it will break and at the worst possible time.
