We Can Install & Service Your Central Air Conditioner in Birmingham, AL

When most people hear the term air conditioning, they envision the traditional central system, also known as a split air conditioner. It is, in fact, the most popular form of air conditioning in the country (and has been for decades). There’s been an increase in technology that has brought us different options, but the central AC system still maintains dominance in the market.

But your central air unit can only work as effectively and efficiently as it’s meant to if it is professionally installed and serviced by experienced HVAC technicians. This is why you should trust Sullivan Service Co. with the job. Birmingham-owned since 1959, we’ve always had one goal in mind: 100% customer satisfaction. Contact us today to schedule your central AC services.

Do You Need a New Central AC System?

There are two reasons anyone might need to have a new central AC system installed—they either don’t have an AC system in their home at all or their current one has broken down, or is nearing the end of its lifespan. But for the latter, how do you know when it’s time for replacement? There are a few different signs you can watch for that indicate you may want to consider a new central air unit in Birmingham, AL:

  • Yours Is Aging: It’s dependent on the manufacturer, but most central AC systems can last a couple decades, so long as they are well taken care of and you stay on top of your maintenance appointments. But no cooling system lasts forever, so if yours has reached this age, it’s time to consider your upgrade options.
  • You Need Frequent Repairs: If your current central AC system has you calling for repairs a few times a year, then something is wrong. You should only need repairs maybe once every couple of years for a well–maintained system. Frequent repairs mean higher wear and tear on your system, and a limited lifespan.
  • Your Efficiency Is Suffering: As your central air conditioner gets old, the various components making up the system begin to wear out. This causes the system’s efficiency to drop, forcing it to stay on for a longer period of time to compensate. This is a waste of energy which hurts system’s efficiency and your wallet.

Caring for Your Central AC

From beginning to end, you want to take care of your central AC system to ensure it lasts as long as possible and performs efficiently, too. This means first determining what size central AC system is best for your living space. Too small of a system can’t adequately cool the home while too large of a system will go through a process called short–cycling, which is damaging to the system.

After installation, you’ll want to follow up with regular maintenance through our Comfort Zone Service Agreement, and stay on top of any repair needs that were recommended to you. After all, AC problems get worse the longer they’re allowed to develop and accumulate. Contact our team today for trustworthy central AC services throughout Birmingham, AL and beyond.
