AC Service Dubai FAQ’S

Most of the systems have average lifetime of 15 to 20 years. As the equipment gets older, its performance declines. You must have noticed that it gets noisier and regularly needs repairing. When your AC unit gets old, you only have two options. You can rebuild your system or buy a new one. Because the cooling and heating systems have advanced over time, a new Air Conditioner designed with more energy-efficient hardware makes sense, especially when your AC is almost 15 years old.

No. It will lower the efficiency of the AC if you only replace the outdoor unit. In reality, your efficiency of the unit drops down to 15 %. Worse scenario, your system will fail and sooner or later you have to replace it with a new one.

No, you don’t want your AC to be too enormous. AC units control a certain comfort level in your home by cooling the air and by extracting the humidity. A bigger AC will cool your home faster, equally it will use more energy and must be costly.

An AC unit that is oversized for your home will have very short cycles. It will surely take little time to cool the air, Indoor unit shuts off before enough air blows across the coil where the moisture will condense into water and it will drain from your system. Too much moisture will be left in the air and it leads to mold and mildew problems.

These short cycles also mean that your system starts and stops very often which will use more energy and causes a lot of wear and tear to the system. An AC operates more proficiently during long run cycles.

A matched component system is important for a various reasons. One is its comfort. When all of your components are equally sized to your home, you can easily control the exact amount of heating or cooling you need so you can relax in your home. Also, matched component system enables every component to perform as designed.

Another important reason to use matched component systems is their efficiency. Most of the people buy are oversized systems for their homes, which uses extra energy than needed for your home. A matched component system for your home provides just the right amount of heating and cooling you need so you get the best value for your money.

You must replace the air filter in your furnace on a regular basis. Dirty air filters reduce the air flow through a system and make the furnace to work harder to maintain the required temperature.

Please give us a call and we can give you proper guidance.

Proper air filtration is very important for the efficiency of heating and cooling system, which ensures healthy environment in your home. Without proper air filtration, dirt and dust can build up on your AC system which causes deficiencies. A high-efficiency air filter will reduce dust or dirt problem and will remove pollen and other particles from the air. No matter what kind of air filter you have, make sure you change it regularly.

With the help of high efficiency air cleaner or air filter, you can remove almost up to 99 % of the pollen and allergens that find their way into the home. They are also very helpful in the reduction of household dust, dirt, smoke, and other air pollutants. The indoor humidifier will reduce itchy skin, scratchy throats, and damage to your woodwork.

Molds are the part of the environment. Outdoors, molds play a vital part in nature by breaking down dead organic things such as dead trees and fallen leaves, but for indoors, mold growth is problem and it must be avoided. There are various types of molds, they cannot grow themselves without water or moisture.

When the humid air passes through chilled cooling coils, water drips through the coils into a collection pan, from where it drains continuously. Problems with these systems may occur when this water collects and becomes stagnant when it becomes blocked. The pan will grow mold that can infect your home with dangerous mold spores very quickly.

You can do three things to avoid mold growth in your system:

Regular maintenance will assure that the collection pan under the indoor coil remains clean and clog free.

Install UV lights right next to the cooling coils to remove any mold or bacteria growing on the collection pan or coils.

Keep your ducts clean and use a high-efficiency air filtration system to keep your HVAC system clean.

The average energy bills of homes are about $1,800 annually. Cooling and Heating uses almost half of a home’s energy. EPA provides very important recommendations for energy-efficient equipment, including equally sizing, quality maintenance and installation, and other home improvement considerations to help you get the most out of the cooling and heating products you purchase and save as much as 30% annually on your total energy costs.

ENERGY STAR labeled and qualified products forbid greenhouse gas emissions by having very strict energy efficiency rules set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Heat pumps are very helpful for your home comfort system because they work in both ways to provide heating and cooling. They have SEER ratings like AC and Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) ratings for measuring efficiency of heat. Higher SEER and HSPF ratings mean greater energy savings.

Variable speed fans work on a simple rule: they are able to spin at various speeds depending on the cooling and heating needs of your home. Usually, they operate at lower speeds, delivering a steady, reliable stream of warm or cool air to your home. This helps control humidity levels, utility costs and system noise. When conditions become more extreme, the fan speed increases so that the system can meet increased demand, guaranteeing that on even the hottest days or coldest nights, you’re comfort needs will be met.

Variable speed fans operate on a simple principle: they are able to spin at different speeds depending on the heating and cooling needs of your home. Usually, they operate at lower speeds, delivering a steady, reliable stream of warm or cool air to your home. This helps to control humidity levels, utility costs and system noise. When conditions become extreme, the fan speed increases so that the system can meet demand, guaranteeing that on even the hottest days or coldest nights, you’re comfort needs will be met.

This may exist for various reasons; uneven solar heat load through windows, an undersized system, not properly balanced or clogged system or a single system serving a two-story home with no zoning control. Each scenario is different, usually requiring an onsite analysis with problem specific recommendations. Please call to arrange for us to see your home.

A difference of 6 decibels (such as between 72 dB and 78 dB) is basically a four-fold increase in compressor sound when rating AC or heat pump units. However, it takes a difference of 10 decibels to double its loudness. It is also noted that it takes approximately 3 decibels for the average human ear to discern any difference in loudness at all.

Great works have been made in reducing the operating sound level of system. We will be happy to show you the difference in sound ratings with our product line.

Yes. Every year, carbon monoxide kills more than 300 Dubai and sends nearly 5,000 more to emergency rooms for treatment, reports the Dubai Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Where does it come from? When carbon-based fuels such as gas, oil, kerosene or wood burn, they produce gases. When fuel burning or combustion isn’t complete, carbon monoxide enters the air. The CPSC advises that carbon monoxide detectors are the only way to alert yourself to the presence of any harmful and toxic gas in your home. If you wake in the night with a severe headache — and especially if another member of the family complains of a headache or is difficult to arouse — get out of the house fast and seek medical help. We recommend carbon monoxide detectors be installed in your home!
