AC Tune-Up in Chesterfield by No Problem

As spring turns to summer, Chesterfield homeowners will be swapping out their heaters for air conditioning. But is it ready to tackle the summer heat? The people at No Problem know that it’s a good idea to give your AC a tune-up before the warm weather moves in. That way, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing your AC will survive the summer heat. Here are six reasons you should get an AC tune-up in Chesterfield before the summer arrives. 

Benefits of an Early AC Tune-Up in Chesterfield:

 

Lower electricity bills.

Summers are hot- there’s no way around it. It’s likely that you’ll want to be running your AC most days, but that can create a steep increase in electrical bills. A system with clogged filters and failing parts will need to work harder to do the same work. By tuning up your AC now, you’re increasing its efficiency and lowering your utility bills.

 

More comfort.

What would you call an AC that can’t keep you cool? A bad one. Summers can be tough even for modern systems. If you want to keep a consistently cool, you’ll want our professionals at No Problem to make sure your AC is running at top performance.

 

Fewer breakdowns.

If you use your AC system this summer, are you certain that it won’t fail to start up? Do you know for sure that it’ll run smoothly all season? If you’re not sure, give us a call! Our tune-ups come with a complete inspection that can identify problems before they cause a breakdown.

 

Cheaper repair bills.

In the event that your AC winds up needing repairs, they’ll likely be cheaper if you’ve gotten maintenance beforehand. The reason for that is because our maintenance addresses the more costly problems (like air flow issues and broken parts) during our inspections.

 

Extended AC lifespan.

If you want your AC system to stay operational for a long time, you’ll want to give it regular maintenance. By routinely checking on your AC and preventing breakdowns, we can help extend your AC’s lifespan by years. Without regular maintenance, the average AC only lasts a few years.

 

Better air quality.

During the months where you never use your AC, various bits of dust and grime build up in it. When you turn it on, all that nasty junk is going to go into the air, which can hurt your air quality and aggravate those summer allergies. When you call No Problem to give your AC a tune-up, we’ll clean it out, ensuring that your home’s air stays fresh.

 

Why should I choose No Problem for my cooling needs?

 

No Problem Heating and Cooling has been helping Missouri homeowners with their heating and cooling systems since 1994. Scheduling an AC tune-up with us is a great way to keep you AC working at its best. Our highly-trained professionals will look over every part of your AC to make sure it’ll last the year. In addition, we also offer excellent service guarantees, warranties on all parts and services, and seasonal rebates.

How to Shut Down Your AC for the Winter

How to Shut Down Your AC for the Winter

  • Cooling
AC shut down winter in Missouri by No Problem

October is here and we’ve gotten our furnaces ready for the incoming winter weather. But how much have you done for your air conditioner? Although you won’t be using it at all, your AC has a condenser outside that needs to be shut down before winter arrives. If you don’t give it the protection it needs, it’ll be heavily damaged and might not work when you try to use it next summer.  Ensure you’ll have a cool summer by following our step-by-step guide to protecting your AC.

Here’s how you shut down your AC for the winter:

 

Ensure both units are repaired

Your AC has an indoor unit and an outdoor condenser, and both should be in good condition. If you can tell one or both of them need work, give us a call to fix them up. You shouldn’t leave any issues to fester over the winter, or they can cause more serious damage down the line.

 

Disconnect the condenser’s power

One of the most important parts of shutting down your AC is ensuring the condenser isn’t getting any power. Even if it’s connected but turned off, a warm spell could cause it to turn on automatically. This could cause it to take damage as it sucks in ice and snow. To disconnect it, you need to shut off the air conditioner’s breaker switch, which is usually found on the side of the house or under a flip-up switch near the condenser. Keep in mind that this switch has to be turned back on next time you want to use the AC. If your AC doesn’t turn on the next time you use it, that switch may be the reason.

 

Clean up the condenser

With the power now disconnected, you should clean up the condenser and the area around it. You should sweep the area with a broom and clear away any debris on or around the condenser. Next, use a low-pressure spray from your hose to wash off the outside cabinet. While it dries, double-check the condenser for damage. It’s good to also see if the filter needs replacing or the seals need to be tightened by professionals.

 

Cover the condenser

When it dries, all that remains is to cover the condenser with a water-proof cover and tightly secure it with bungee ropes. Everything you need for that can be purchased at a local hardware store. If you have a water-proof tarp, that can work as well assuming it completely covers the condenser.

R22 Refrigerant: Replace it Soon!

R22 Refrigerant: Replace it Soon!

  • Cooling
R22 Refrigerant in Missouri by No Problem

In your home, do you have an older AC, such as from before 2010? If so, then we have some important information for you. Refrigerant is a liquid inside your AC that moves between various parts to move heat, cooling your home. Chlorodifluoromethane, better known as R22 refrigerant or Freon, is one of the more popular kinds of refrigerant in the country. However, in about four months, that’s going to change.

A history of R22 refrigerant, past, and future

R22 refrigerant first saw usage when it was first created in the 1950s. It’s particularly popular for its usage in residential and commercial heating and cooling. However, in the 1970s, people discovered that R22 and similar refrigerants cause major damage to the ozone layer. As a result, the EPA and various global organizations created the Montreal Protocol, a plan to phase out ozone-damaging refrigerants. Starting in 2004, we’ve been phasing out the usage of R22 and similar gasses. One of these deadlines came in at the start of 2010. Since then, there are no manufacturers that produce AC units that use R22. The final deadline comes in at the start of 2020. When that comes around, no one will be producing R22 anymore, except for recovered and recycled R22.

What does this mean for those who use AC units with R22? Simply put, you’ll be paying a lot more to keep your old AC working. Given that older AC units already tend to need more service, your more frequent AC service calls will cost a lot more. Also, there are strict regulations on recovering and recycling R22, and only EPA-certified technicians can buy what remains of the R22 supply. This all means that R22 and all repairs involving it will cost a lot more when New Year’s rolls around.

What should you do?

With R22 prices soon rising, your best bet is to get a new AC. At No Problem Heating and Cooling, we offer new, energy-efficient models that use R401a refrigerant, which is newer and more environmentally friendly than R22. It’s possible to retrofit older units to use R401a, but that can cost as much as a new model and is certain to void the warranty. There’s also the possibility that you wind up breaking your AC, requiring to you buy a new one.

But how do you know your AC uses R22? Odds are, if your AC was made before 2010, then it uses R22. If not, then it probably uses a different refrigerant. To be certain, you should check your AC unit’s manual or nameplate, which can usually be found on the outside condenser. If you can’t find them or are still unsure, check with the AC unit’s manufacturer or call us.

Do I Need AC Repair or Replacement?

Do I Need AC Repair or Replacement?

  • Cooling
AC repair or replacement in Missouri by No Problem

Problems with your AC never seem to happen at a convenient time. Oftentimes it seems they only break down when they’re working hard on a very hot day. Usually all you need to do is call No Problem to come fix it with a repair. However, the problem might actually be a sign that your AC is good and gone. But how do you tell the difference between some basic repairs and a complete breakdown? Read our guide to learn whether you need AC repair or replacement.

Do you need an AC repair or replacement? First, here are some signs it just needs repairing:

 

Increased energy bills

Have you noticed you’re paying more for your bills than you normally do? That might be a sign your AC is becoming less efficient. As your AC gets worn down, it takes more effort on its part to get the same results. This increased effort can also reduce your AC’s overall lifespan, so it’s a good idea to get it checked out.

 

Strange, loud noises

For the most part, ACs are very quiet when they run. Because of this, if you hear any loud scraping, rattling, or banging noises, you know there’s a problem. There are a few different things that could be causing the noise. There might be a part loose or broken, a component might need lubrication, or a belt might have slipped out of place. Whatever it is, it can be damaging and costly if not repaired. If your AC is being noisy, call us right away!

 

Moisture

A leaky AC can be a sign of a serious repair job. If the AC is leaking water or has ice inside it, that’s just a problem with a drain tube. The water can cause some mold and mildew, but it could be worse. What you really have to worry about is your AC having a refrigerant leak. Not only is Freon poisonous, but the leak is a serious AC problem. Whatever problem you have, call one of our technicians ASAP.

 

Warm air

Obviously, you bought an AC to cool your house, not sit around looking pretty. If it’s not keeping the house comfortable during hot weather, it’s time to give it an examination.

 

Low airflow

A similar issue to the air being hot is the airflow not being strong enough. It might be an issue with the AC’s compressor or possibly the ducts themselves. There’s definitely some uncertainty in this issue, so it’s a good idea to call a professional to diagnose the issue.

 

Strange odors

If the air in your home is starting to smell strange, there might be trouble. If your AC is poorly maintained, mold might be growing on the coil inside the unit. When your AC is operating, it’ll spread that mold through the air. That musty smell could be a sign of mold in either the unit or the duct work. Alternatively, the wire insulation inside your AC might be burnt out. Either way, it’s worth calling in a professional to fix the issue.

 

Thermostat not working

Your thermostat acts as the command center for your AC. Its job is to tell the AC how much cool air to generate and constantly take measurements to make sure its working right. When the AC won’t turn on or won’t stay on for long, the thermostat might have a problem. You’ll need a trained technician to look at the thermostat, as they have plenty of complex electrical components.

 

Next, here are some signs you should schedule a replacement:

 

The AC reached retirement age

How long have you owned your current AC? According to the National Association of Home Builders, a well-maintained AC unit should last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. If your AC has reached this point and isn’t working like it used to, it might be time to retire it. It may seem like a major cost, but don’t worry! You can use this opportunity to purchase a modern unit that’s more energy efficient.

 

The AC has a refrigerant leak

A refrigerant leak is a serious problem with your AC. The leaking coolant can pose a health risk to your family and the water leakage can damage your home. It’s possible to fix serious leaks by getting a new coil, but it might be a sign you should get a new AC.

 

A repair would cost too much

Sometimes replacement parts and repairs for your AC don’t justify their high costs. It gets more unappealing when you’re talking about a unit with an expired warranty. If this is the case, you should pick up a new unit and get a new warranty.

 

Your AC is making strange noises

Is your AC operating louder than it normally does? AC units are supposed to run quietly, so any grinding, banging, or rattling noises are a major concern. These noises can represent something like a slipped belt or broken motor bearings. If these issues aren’t fixed quickly, you’ll have a costly repair or replacement on your hands.

 

The AC air isn’t cold

If you turn on the AC and cool air doesn’t come out within a few minutes, there’s a problem. A wide variety of issues can cause this problem, like low Freon levels or a broken compressor. Whatever the case may be, it’s an obvious sign that your AC has an issue.

 

Your AC needs frequent repairs

You may want to keep an AC operational for a while through repeated repairs. However, doing this may eventually lead you to spend more than you would from getting a replacement. This is more likely if your warranty has expired and isn’t helping with repair costs. If the repair costs keep adding up, it may be time to install a new unit.

Stay Cool With These Summer Savings!

Stay Cool With These Summer Savings!

  • Cooling
summer savings with No Problem in Missouri

When the summer heat rolls in, you’ll likely want to stay cool. This means you’ll be using your AC a lot to keep your house comfortable. However, keeping your AC on all summer will generate some hefty electricity bills. There are plenty of things you can do, big and small, to get some AC savings in Texas this summer. Let the experts at No Problem Heating and Cooling give you some advice on how to stay cool without breaking the bank.

Here are six tips on getting some summer savings:

 

Stay on top of your AC’s maintenance

When was the last time you gave your AC maintenance? If the answer isn’t “this spring,” you should call us to give it an inspection. Getting your AC an inspection can do a lot to improve your energy savings. The AC won’t have to work as hard to cool, it’ll have less mechanical issues, and any grime built up in your AC will be cleaned out. It’s a simple bit of advice, but it’s very good advice at the same time.

 

Upgrade your thermostat

Programmable thermostats are a great way to help conserve your AC’s energy usage. A major feature in these thermostats is that they are programmable and can follow a schedule. This lets you automatically adjust the temperature around the household’s schedule, so the AC turns off when nobody’s home. Other useful features include the ability to keep a constant temperature and other high-tech features.

 

Keep your home sealed

In a battle between the Sun and your AC to determine the outside temperature, the Sun will win hands-down. Because of this, you want your home to stay well-insulated. A poorly insulated home will leak cool air and let in hot air more easily. At a basic level, you can fix this by caulking leaky windows and insulating doors leading outside. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive examination, call one of our experts to check your home.

 

Close the blinds

If you have windows letting in sunlight, that can make your home hotter than you want. During the hotter parts of the day, close your blinds to keep out the sun to keep the temperature down. In addition, this also helps keep cool air inside your house.

 

Be a fan of ceiling fans

You don’t always need the air conditioner to stay cool. The National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) estimates that a ceiling fan can make a room feel 10°F and uses 10% of an AC’s energy. There are also smart ceiling fans that can be set on a schedule, similarly to smart thermostats.

 

Get zone control AC

Zone control AC lets you choose individual areas to heat or cool. You probably have one or two parts of the house you don’t use very often. With zone control, you can cool certain parts of the house less or not at all. This lets you save money on unnecessary cooling.

 

What makes No Problem my best choice for keeping my home cool this summer?

No Problem Heating and Cooling has been working for over 25 years to keep Missouri residents comfortable. Our company is available for 24/7 emergency calls because we know that your AC doesn’t keep normal business hours. In addition, we’re proud to have recently won the prestigious 2017 “Best of St. Charles” award for the Heating Contractor Services category. Call No Problem today so we can help you maximize your summer savings!

4 Common AC Emergencies in Missouri

  • Cooling
  • HVAC
AC emergencies in Missouri by No Problem

Over the course of its life, your AC will likely have a variety of mechanical issues. However, don’t be so quick to call us to fix it! A lot of times, the issue is something extremely easy to fix, like a changed thermostat or a power outage. Other times, these can be actual emergencies that can mean life or death for your AC. Let No Problem tell you about four common AC emergencies in Missouri.

Here are four AC emergencies in Missouri you’ll likely experience:

 

Screeching noises

Is your AC making more noise than it usually does? AC units are generally pretty quiet, but they can get very noisy when something is wrong. If you’re hearing screeching noises, there are two reasons why that’s happening, and one is much worse than the other. The less serious issue is that the fan belt has become loose. However, it’s possible that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure. If that’s the case, turn off your AC immediately and call us to repair it.

 

Blowing warm air

This might be surprising, but your AC shouldn’t be blowing warm air. If it is despite your thermostat being set correctly, then you have a problem. There are a variety of reasons this can be happening. Some of the possible causes include a restriction in the air flow, a lack of electricity to the outside unit, a problem with the compressor/outdoor unit, or a low refrigerant level. You’ll have to call one of our professionals to find the cause.

 

Burning smell

If there’s ever a burning smell coming from your AC, that’s a sign of a major problem. More often than not, the burning smell is a sign of an electrical problem. Oftentimes something has heated up to the point where it has melted. It’s important to call us as soon as you can so we can take a look. Electrical problems can easily become fires if they go unchecked.

 

No air

It’s common for an AC in need of repair to not blow any air. There are a wide variety of reasons you’re not getting any air. Sometimes the problem is something as simple as a clogged air filter. However, sometimes the issue can be something far more serious. Before you call us, check over your AC for the more obvious issues. If you still can’t figure out what’s causing your AC problems, call on us to check it out.

 

What makes No Problem a high quality heating and cooling company?

For 25 years, No Problem Heating and Cooling has been working with Missouri residents on their heating and cooling systems.

How to Keep the Upstairs of Your Home Cooler?

Tips To Cooling Down Your Upstairs

No Problem Heating and Cooling, St. Charles, MO

You know how nice and comfortable the lower level of the house is. Feels so great. You decide I want to put on some stretchy pants and relax. You head upstairs and it is hotter than an oven. Keeping the upstairs cooler is tough, however. Here are a few things you can do in your home: 

Keep shades and drapes closed

It’s important to remember that sunlight is beating down on your house all day long. That heat warms the side of the house so it naturally increases in temperature. Those windows that you have hold heat, just like your car. when you go to sit in it and it is steaming hot. Think of your house the same way.  TIP If you can’t stand the heat and do not have any drapes or curtains, you can consider window tinting. This is an amazing way to keep the heat out of the house. In the winter it can also prevent heat from escaping. We highly recommend Custom Tint Solutions. Click on this website link to contact them. When you call, ask for Joe S. They also have locations in Austin TX, San Antonio TX and St. Louis MO.

Keep lights off

Leaving your lights on wastes energy, which creates heat. -TIP- A great way to conserve energy is energy-saving bulbs. You can also use a dimmer switch which will allow you to turn down the lights.

Opening and closing registers

Closing vents can cause problems in the long run, so it’s important to be careful. Your health and well being is important. Especially when it comes to kids. If you are sleeping upstairs and it is one of those 100 degree nights like St. Louis gets. I would close a few vents my self. Just open then back up when you go downstairs.

Floor Fans

Fans are a great way to circulate air throughout a room. Although they don’t exactly lower the temp, they can help move cold air around.

Drastic Changes

  1. Windows- Consider replacing your windows. Low E glass or triple pained windows are the best. TIP If you have cracks or space between the windows and the walls, this will allow hot air or cool air to escape like that spider you covered last night with that favorite wine glass.  Even if you don’t upgrade your glass, make sure to cover any structural spots that need taken care of.
  2. Duct or ceiling fans –Replacing the AC register covers with register fans forces air out the upstairs ducts. You can call us to have them installed. TIP Add some ceiling fans to your upstairs rooms.

Air Conditioner Not Blowing Cold Air?

Air Conditioner Not Blowing Cold Air?

  • HVAC
heat wave

Your AC is blowing but it isn’t blowing cold air. We hear this common question in St. Charles,  Mo. “Why isn’t my air conditioner cooling my home?” The most common cause is simply a lack of airflow. One of the first steps is going to your circuit breaker and flip it off. Give it a few minutes and let it rest. Flip it back on and see if you have noticed any change in your air. The idea behind this is to give it a reset. You are shutting all the electrical and mechanical parts down. Hopefully, by doing this simple step it reset for you.

AC Not Blowing Cold Air

If your AC isn’t working properly, it’s important to know the cause. In this blog, we will troubleshoot any issues you may be experiencing in your home!

Outside Air Conditioner Not Turning On.

If your outside unit is not turning on this could be a big problem. You should first check your fuse box and make sure that you have not blown a fuse. This seems like it would be out of the ordinary and you are right. It normally isn’t the problem but kids flip breakers having fun all the time and sometimes they just overload.

No Cold Air? No Problem Can Help.

Common Issues You May Experience With Your AC

Power Issues

This is generally your first thought to check. It seems basic but it is so common you just have to check. You should check the ac and make sure you are still plugged in. While you are at it go yo your electric panel and still if it has been flipped or broke. If you had a surge of power it could have flipped the breaker without you knowing.

Clogged Filter

We have seen AC units that will shut down the entire system when the filter gets dirty. This is a simple trick to help save your motor and help save your entire system. When you have a clogged filter, you will notice the system gets backed up and the ac will have trouble breathing.

Thermostat Problems

Barring any electrical issues,  the next step is to check your thermostat. Many things can go wrong with a traditional thermostat. If you haven’t looked into a digital thermostat yet, the time is now.

Clogged Drain

The whole idea behind an air conditioner is to remove that moisture from the air. Once the air is removed, it drains it out of a pipe or hose. It is very important to replace those or keep them clean. You can rinse it out with a natural cleaning solution.

Dirty Compressor

Your compressor is a high ticket item and it should be treated like so! You should try to clean around the area. Some folks in colder areas in St. Charles like to cover it for the winter.

Why Isn’t My Air Conditioning Not Cooling My House?

Your air conditioner has a water sensor switch for example. This will shut down if it has a clogged condensate drain line and spills water into the overflow pan. It is your Amana AC airbag deploying to prevent water damage to your home.

Like a human, your ac can overheat. This will cause it to run harder and pulling in more than enough electricity than the breaker can handle. The breaker will cut power to your air conditioner. If you flip the breaker and it does it again a few times. It is letting you know there is something wrong somewhere.

Other Possible Issues

  • You could have a bad compressor. This will need to be inspected by a licensed technician
  • There could be a low charge on your refrigerant or you have a leak
  • A broken condenser

If you cannot figure this, out or just have a simple question call us. We can make this easy for you! If you are having an issue call us as soon as you can! We’re ready to help you today.

Why Is My Air Conditioner Leaking?

Why Is My Air Conditioner Leaking?

  • HVAC
AC leak? Call No Problem Heating and Cooling tor AC REpair

Got an AC Leak?

Call The Experts At No Problem!

It never crosses your mind but that air conditioner moves a lot of cold air. As long as it comes on and kicks off when requested the air conditioner leaking does not cross your mind. It might cause a little confused though when there is a swampy water mess underneath the unit outside or indoor next to the evaporator unit. We will go through AC leaks and explain unnecessary or unexpected repairs.

AC Leaks Explained

Remember only a certified heating and cooling specialist will be able to diagnose a problem with your St Charles, MO air conditioner. If a large amount of water is still visible after a 24 hr period contact us. Here are some reasons why your air conditioner might be leaking.

  1. There could be a blockage in the condensate drain pipe and then can force water to back up and out of the drain pan.
  2. A dirty air filter. This can cause restricted airflow to the coil. The coil can freeze then cause water to spill out of the condensate drain pan.
  3. A simple crack in the air conditioner condensate drain pan allows water to leak out of the air conditioner.
  4. Low refrigerant can cause the evaporator coil to become a lot colder than normal and cause a freeze up.

This Is When An AC Leak Isn’t A Problem.

Always remember that weather can play a huge role for the system. An air conditioner leaking is normal in a sense. Here are a few times you don’t have to be alarmed.

  1. On a hot St. Charles MO day three more than likely will be a small amount of water around the air conditioner. Most systems automatically recycle water so this is seen often.
  2. You could notice a small amount of water around the condensate drain pipe. Again, St. Louis is known for its crazy hot weather and humidity. Improvise. If the water does not go away or grows larger, it might be time to give us a call.

Things to Do If You Discover your Air Conditioner Leaking

The same small air conditioner maintenance tactics come back to play. Try checking or changing the air filter. You can also bleach the condensate line. Normally these will fix the leak. If not the problem could be more extensive. It would be worth it to call the contractor. Finding water is no reason to panic. Follow these simple steps and do a self-diagnostic to see if you need to take further steps.

Air Conditioner Leaking from New Installation.

If you have recently had a newer air conditioner installed, the problem can simply due to the installation process. We have seen improperly designed condensate traps that stop the condensate from draining.

If you are just not sure how to fill out an appointment, we will have an NPM expert call you right away. Call today!
