Air Conditioning Service in Birmingham, AL.
Air Conditioning Maintenance
Many homeowners think that as long as their heating and cooling systems work when they expect them to, they’re fine. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This kind of mentality may apply to some things, but your HVAC system can always benefit from regular maintenance services. We recommend an air conditioner tune-up once a year, preferably in the spring. This way, we can make sure your AC is ready to handle everything Mother Nature sends its way.
KS Services’ air conditioner maintenance includes a comprehensive inspection of all your air conditioner or heat pump components. Your technician cleans and lubricates necessary components, and checks the integrity of the belts. He or she also tests all electrical switches and controls.
This thorough service quickly identifies areas of excess wear and tear. These red flags allow us to make minor repairs or suggest usage changes to prevent bigger repairs and/or breakdowns from occurring in the future. This ultimately saves you time and money.
Plus, most manufacturer warranties require routine maintenance from a qualified professional to stay in compliance.
AC Repair in Birmingham
At KS Services, we repair any brand of air conditioner or heat pump. How do you know when you need a repair? Short of “nothing happens when I turn it on,” there are a few signs.
For example, if your heat pump or air conditioner behaves oddly, it might need to be repaired. Odd behavior may include a strange noise, like a grinding sound. You may also hear clicks or squeals. In some cases, you may smell strange odors, like musty mildew or a burnt smell.
All of these, believe it or not, mean something specific to an experienced HVAC technician. We are happy to jump in and solve your problem before it gets worse and requires replacement, or more importantly, puts your safety at risk.
HVAC systems are powerful and expensive appliances in our homes. It’s more than just comfort; heating and air equipment affect your safety as well. Call us for any concerns you have with your heat pump or air conditioner. We’ll fix it right up with peace of mind for you, as well.
Air Conditioner Installation in Birmingham
It’s important to start out with the right equipment. Our team carefully measures and records information about your house, your needs, and any energy-efficiency goals you have. It’s crucial to get an appropriately sized cooling system for your home. Too often, we find a customer with an air conditioner that’s either too big or too small for his or her home.
Is a “too big” AC unit a bad thing in Alabama? You bet. There’s a host of potential problems there – everything from short cycling to discomfort and outrageous utility bills. When you’re ready to replace an air conditioner, give us a call.
We’re happy to talk through your various air conditioning installation options, the pros and cons of variable versus single-speed units, how to incorporate a Wi-Fi, or “smart” thermostat, and if ductless mini splits are right for you.
Heat Pump Systems
Many homeowners have opted to make the switch from an air conditioning system to a heat pump. Heat pumps are a heating and cooling system that works year-round to provide comfort to your Birmingham, AL home. Why are heat pumps so popular? They’re incredibly energy efficient! Instead of using natural gas in your heating system to make your home comfortable, heat pumps transfer heat from the air outside into the home. In the summer, the process is reversed. The system transfers hot air and releases it outside.
Heat Pump Installation
Now that you know about heat pumps, are you interested in having one installed? Talk to one of our experienced HVAC technicians to see if a heat pump system would be right for your home. There are many incentives and discounts available, and the team at KS Services can work with you to see what you’d best qualify for. We can also install a heat pump in your home faster with financing options from Wells Fargo. You can have a quality heating and cooling system installed in your home while making small monthly payments. Call us today to see if you qualify.
Heat Pump Maintenance
If you use a heat pump, we recommend a tune-up twice a year. Because heat pumps work all year long to provide both heating and air conditioning, it needs extra attention. Unlike an air conditioner and a furnace combination, a heat pump has no off-season. Regular maintenance can help restore your system’s energy efficiency and uncover minor issues so your system doesn’t break down unexpectedly.
Heat Pump Repairs
If your heat pump breaks down at any time, you can count on KS Services to respond 24/7 to any heating and cooling emergency HVAC problems. This includes broken heat pumps. For all of your HVAC repair needs including loud noises coming from your unit, odd smells, or limited air output, schedule an appointment with us today.
Ductless air conditioners are quickly gaining in popularity. You may use them in a couple of different ways. First, you could use a single unit to boost the comfort in a room that’s tricky to cool, like a sunroom or a south-facing room with lots of windows.
Ductless mini splits are installed on the ceiling or on the wall and are quiet, energy-efficient and – because they’re not connected to ductwork – flexible. If you’re building onto your home or finishing a space like a garage workspace, they’re amazing.
Second, some homeowners choose to install multiple indoor units to heat and cool their whole house. As many as four to six indoor units may connect to a single outdoor condenser unit. This provides zone control for specific rooms or floors, unlike central heating and air. A ductless system needs an outdoor compressor to work. This can be an air conditioner or a heat pump. When air conditioning systems are connected to ductless mini splits, they are only able to cool a room, but when connected to a heat pump, they can both heat and cool.
Talk to KS Services about a ductless air distribution system and if it would work best in your home. We can install one unit, or multiple units throughout the house. Whenever your ductless mini-split is having issues, you can always turn to KS Services for quality ductless mini-split repairs. We can also tune up your mini-split during your annual maintenance appointment.
Commercial Cooling Services
Not all HVAC contractors have the experience to provide repairs to commercial buildings. Commercial heating and cooling systems are much more complex than residential ones, which can make troubleshooting issues much more complicated. When you call KS Services, you will have complete confidence that our commercial services will provide you with the comfort solutions you need.
Businesses all throughout the Birmingham, AL area turn to KS Services when their offices, storefronts, or multi-family buildings are uncomfortable. We are an HVAC company with years of experience installing new systems in buildings as well as maintaining them to keep their cooling system running on the hottest days of the year.
Indoor Air Quality Service in Birmingham, AL
The first air quality concern for most customers is humidity. As part of the cooling process, an air conditioner extracts moisture from the air, but it’s hard to keep up with the volume of humidity we encounter in Alabama.
Many people choose to install a whole home dehumidifer to complement the cooling system in their homes. A whole-home dehumidifier increases your comfort, takes some pressure off the air conditioner or heat pump, and even lets you leave the air conditioner at a slightly higher temperature, which saves you money.
Do you have someone in your family with allergies or asthma? The number of people who live with chronic respiratory illness continues to increase. In fact, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Birmingham is the 8th most challenging city in the United States to live with asthma.
Triggers for allergies or asthma vary by person. The most common include pollutants, such as dust, dander, pollen, mildew, and insect or critter material. We can provide indoor air quality solutions to make sure everyone in your home is comfortable and healthy.
We install various air filtration or cleaning products within your HVAC system to reduce or eliminate airborne particulates. Some products neutralize airborne viruses or bacteria particles. That’s good for everyone. Ask us for a free recommendation based on your specific health needs.
