Most modern air conditioning units are also capable of heating and cooling, though dedicated heating and cooling solutions are often-times recommended in most situations for a variety of reasons.

Air Conditioning

Why should I service my air conditioner?

A regular service is recommended for your AC unit in order to keep it running as best as possible. Regularly servicing your unit will not only help keep your atmosphere cool but it also extends the lifetime of your unit and reduces the cost of maintenance. Ensure you service your unit with our team of professionals, at Stryker Electric and Air, and keep your AC running at maximum efficiency.

Why does my air conditioner leak?

Your AC unit can be leaking for one of a number of reasons:

  • A clogged drainage pipe or a ruptured seal on from the condensate drain line of your air conditioner may be at fault. When this happens, condensed water does not run off the way it should and the result can be costly water damage to nearby walls and fixtures.
  • In addition to a clogged condensate pipe, another culprit can be the condensate pump, which is used to force accumulated water out of the system through a drain line. If this pump goes bad, you can end up with a serious leak on your hands.
  • There are more serious cases, where a leak causes a larger leak. A leak of a large quantity of refrigerant can cause the indoor coils to become iced and in turn, defrost, resulting in a massive flood of the unit and the surroundings.

Remember that Stryker Electric and Air, with its team of certified technicians is ready to keep your units in shape and your property protected from AC mishaps and disasters.
