If you own a business in Fresno, CA, air conditioning is crucial for maintaining a comfortable environment for your employees and/or customers and clients. A rooftop package unit, which combines all the components of the air conditioning into a single cabinet, is one of the best ways to condition your workplace.
However, no air conditioning system, packaged or otherwise, will last forever. At a certain point, you may discover that your current packaged AC can no longer do the work it is supposed to, or it has started to drain money due to an inefficient performance. When you think you need a replacement, call on the team at Shaw’s Air Conditioning. We’ll look over your current system and determine if repairs will do any good. If the system is too aged and worn down, we will tell you when it’s a better idea to have installation of a new unit with a higher efficiency rating.
We recently installed a new 16 SEER package unit for a Central Valley business. They called us to look at their current air conditioning system, which was very old and suffering from one of the major problems that occurs with age in an AC: Freon leaks. When refrigerant begins to leak from an air conditioner, it not only impairs the AC’s cooling power, but it will eventually damage other components, such as the compressor, leading to a complete breakdown.
In this case, we detected numerous leaks in the system. Although it was possible to fix them, the business owners opted instead to replace the decaying system with a new 16 SEER American Standard Package unit. This was definitely a wise choice, since the older system probably only had a few more years of service remaining to it, and it was already operating at lower efficiency and costing more to run than it should. With the new 16 SEER unit, the business would start saving money immediately thanks to the higher efficiency.
