Central Air Repair
Utah summers are long, hot, and uncomfortable if you don't have a reliable air conditioner. Last year in Salt Lake City there were several days when the temperature topped 100 degrees. Looking at how the summer heat has been increasing over the past several years, we can only assume that it is going to get hotter and hotter each summer.

Our Thorough Central Air Diagnosis
Humphrey Plumbing Heating and Air has developed a system to thoroughly diagnose your air conditioner and furnace. When we find a part that has failed we ask, 'why did that part fail?' Low refrigerant, dirty coils, a poor filter set up and many other conditions will cause a central air system to work harder and longer which often results in the failure of the part in question. Our 25 point checklist allows our technicians to evaluate your entire central air system. There are few things more inconvenient than taking time off to get something fixed only to have it break again shortly after. Our thorough diagnostic has been designed to prevent this problem.
Air Conditioner Repair
If your air conditioner runs all the time without reaching the desired temperature you may have a problem with the refrigerant charge. Our technicians have the expertise to adjust the refrigerant level of your air conditioner. In many cases, we can pinpoint the source of the leak and give options to repair it. These repairs may consist of pumping out the refrigerant and brazing the refrigerant line, after which the refrigerant lines will be pumped into a vacuum and recharged. We carry R-22 (freon) and R-410a (puron). These are the most common types of refrigerant used in HVAC systems.
Central air systems are designed to have a certain amount of airflow through the indoor coil. Issues with fans, blowers, filters, return air, and freezing can affect the flow of this air. Dirt and debris that restricts air flow will cause major problems. Coils and fans will sometimes need to be disassembled and cleaned with heavy duty cleaners and/or pressure washing. Our technicians are not afraid to do the dirty work.
If your central air system is acting up or is just not working at all give us a call. In many cases, we can provide options to improve your HVAC system so that it will run more efficiently and break down less often. We offer our services to cities in Northern Utah including Salt Lake City, Murray, Sandy, West Jordan, Magna, West Valley, Taylorsville, Draper, Ogden, Bountiful, Centerville, Woods Cross, Layton, Kaysville, Sugarhouse, and Holladay.

The R 22 Phase Out
Most central air systems installed before 2011 used R 22 refrigerant which is also known as freon. This type of refrigerant is being phased out due to its harmful effect on the ozone layer. Central air systems manufactured since 2011 use R 410a refrigerant which is also known as puron. Supplies of R 22 will become limited over time, so the cost of this refrigerant has skyrocketed and will no longer be produced after 2020. If you have a central air system which is low on R 22 refrigerant, it is in your best interest to make sure the technician servicing your system finds the source of the leak and repairs it as opposed to just topping it off.
What to check before you call
If your air conditioner is not working it may be something simple that does not require a technician. If nothing is turning on, check to make sure that the switch is on at the furnace and that the breaker is on. Also, check the outside breaker and make sure that is on as well. If your thermostat flashes a battery icon try replacing the batteries. Air conditioners that freeze up may just need a clean filter. If your central air is frozen, let it thaw out by turning it off for a few hours then run it with a clean filter to see if that solves the problem. If these solutions do not fix the problem, you will need a repair that we would be happy to help you with. Give us a call and we will send out a friendly and knowledgeable technician to diagnose the problem.
