Your house may have improperly sized ductwork or holes in the ductwork. Also, there may be a lack of insulation in some of the rooms.

You just made a major investment in your house by purchasing an air conditioning and heating system. By checking it out twice a year, you can rest assured that it will be operating at peak performance. Also, most units come with an extended part warranty. This means if a part goes out, it will be replaced under the part warranty. Why not have that done and keep the unit running properly?

If it can be done safely and cost-effectively, AirStar always prefers to repair rather than replace. However, without exception, IF YOUR HEAT EXCHANGER IS CRACKED, YOU SHOULD REPLACE YOUR HEATER. A cracked heat exchanger will leak carbon monoxide into your home and can kill you.

Turning on your heater for the first time in winter can produce a burning smell. This is more prevalent on heat pumps when the electric heat turns on. However, if you feel the smell is making you feel uncomfortable or you think there may be a problem, please turn it off and call Air Star so we can dispatch one of our experienced technicians to take care of the problem for you.

That will depend on the usage of your air conditioning equipment. Some of the things to consider are:

  1. Do you have pets?
  2. Do you have children?
  3. Do you have carpet?
  4. Do you smoke?

The first thing to do is turn it off. Usually, once your unit freezes up, it can happen again. The biggest concern is causing further damage to your air conditioning equipment. Running your air conditioning unit while it is frozen can cause damage to the compressor, which in turn is a very costly repair. Call Air Star and we will be happy to dispatch an experienced technicians to take care of the problem for you.
