  • Corroded evaporator coils

Protect Your Air Conditioner with a Condenser Cage

When thieves strip your air conditioning condenser’s copper wires, brass piping, and motors, it’s not a quick fix to get it running again. While they’re making money on the black market, you’re left with a badly damaged air conditioner that may need significant repairs before it can run again.

If you’re in a high-risk area, or if you simply wish to protect your investment from thieves, we are happy to offer condenser cage installation. Our ac condenser cages are extremely secure, can be made to fit your current air conditioning condenser, and still allow technicians to easily service the unit. Call now for pricing and to see if a condenser cage is a good investment for you.

Did you know?

Michael Faraday, best known for the Faraday Cage, came up with the idea of using compressed ammonia gas to create the first air conditioner all the way back in 1820. But the first air conditioned home wouldn’t be built until almost a hundred years later, in 1913.

Ductless Air Conditioner Installation

Over the past few years, ductless air conditioning systems have exploded in popularity–and for good reason. Our ductless mini-split systems by Mitsubishi let you cool rooms independently from each other, so everyone in your home can set a custom temperature that is right for them. With a ductless system, you also aren’t wasting money on rooms that don’t need to be cooled. They’re also extremely efficient, with SEER ratings up to 33, making them roughly 50% more efficient than even the best heat pumps.

Ductless systems come in a variety of configurations and styles so there’s something for everyone.

While these high-quality systems do cost more than standard ducted systems, there are multiple financing options that can help. As a Mitsubishi Electric Elite contractor, we are able to offer some of the industry’s best financing for ductless systems through Synchrony.

If you think a ductless air conditioning system might be a good fit for your home, call today to set up your free in-home consultation and estimate on your ac installation.

Ducted Air Conditioning Installation

If you just want to replace your ducted, forced air system, we can do that too. We install high quality equipment by Trane that offers significant efficiency, performance, and lifetimes savings benefits over equipment by other manufacturers. We even offer multiple ways to pay for your central air install, including financing.

Signs You Need Furnace Repair

  • Weird smells. Burning plastic or gas can be signs that your furnace is operating in dangerous conditions.
  • Short cycling. If your furnace keeps turning off and on again, it could be a sign of a faulty fan motor, heat sensor, or electrical issues.
  • Breaker keeps tripping. An electrical short or failure could case frequently tripped breakers.

Of course, these are just a few of the warning signs that something is wrong with your furnace. Be sure to call for help at the first sign of any trouble to avoid more costly repairs, and health risks, down the road.

“I’ve been using Irish for close to 5 years now. At first when I tried him I had heard good things but I could never rely on that until I had my own experience. Sure enough the reviews and feedback I had heard/seen were correct. I quickly started sharing Irish with friends and family and realized his team was honest and reliable. In the past few years he has done service calls, a entire unit replacement, and seasonal services for my family. I know Ryan will get it taken care of and usually knows what’s wrong before he approaches the home. Saves me time and money every time I use him!”

Smart Homeowners Sign Up For Preventative Maintenance

One of the first things we always recommend to our customers is that they enroll in a routine maintenance plan for their furnace and air conditioner.

Regular inspections guarantee that our furnace repair technicians will spot signs of damage or irregular functioning ASAP, allowing us to prevent further damage to your system, and potentially to your home. It’s the smart, easy way to avoid unexpected air conditioning repairs, and sudden furnace shutdowns, and other HVAC failures that can threaten your home comfort.

Preventative maintenance is also a smart way to keep your family safe. Gas furnaces are a fire hazard if not properly ventilated, and furnaces can also leak natural gas or carbon monoxide, both of which are extremely hazardous to your health.

Let our experts at Irish Heating and Air set up a quarterly service plan for your HVAC system. Read more about our maintenance services or call today to get started.
