Exceptional service for your comfort.
Our technicians have extensive experience installing and repairing all types of air conditioners—from smaller, single units used to cool residential homes to complex, multi-unit cooling systems for commercial buildings.
Residential AC Units
Residential cooling systems are most often single air conditioning units, just large enough to cool the inside of a single-family home. The cooling units themselves come in a variety of sizes to accommodate both larger and smaller homes.
Though larger units usually incur bigger utility bills, it’s best to choose the right size system for your home. A system that’s too small for your space will run for much longer and cost you more money in the long-term. If you’re not sure what size AC unit works for your home, you can trust the experts at Therm Ayre to make a recommendation.
Industrial AC Units
Industrial air conditioning is generally much more complex than residential air conditioning systems. We usually install a series of heavy-duty units on the roof to cool a large office space or other public building. This placement ensures we can maintain them easily, and helps cool the building from the top down.
Using multiple units not only increases the air conditioner’s cooling power, but also enables us to split the system into sections so that different rooms, offices, or floors of the building can have separate thermostats.
While it is often quicker and less expensive to repair a malfunctioning AC unit, sometimes it’s worth the investment to simply replace it. A new system may cost more upfront, but will save you money in the long run because you won’t have to worry about higher electricity bills and constant maintenance.
Regardless, when we assess your air conditioning system, you can trust Therm Ayre to make the best recommendation for you. Our goal is to provide you with an efficient system at the best possible value.
The technicians at Therm Ayre are well-versed in maintaining, fixing, and upgrading a wide range of air conditioner systems. Below are the systems we see most often in South Jersey.
Most homes in South Jersey with air conditioning systems have a central air conditioner. These systems feature a central unit that blows cool air through a duct system in your home, cooling all the rooms at the same time.
Central air conditioning typically only has one thermostat that controls the temperature in your whole house. Vents that open and close can be installed to help fine-tune the temperature of certain areas.
Ductless air conditioning—also called a ductless mini-split system—features an outdoor compressor/condenser and several indoor units that are wall-mounted or suspended from the ceiling. They’re connected to the outdoor compressor/condenser by a refrigerant line that enables the indoor units to efficiently cool the air as it enters your home.
Having multiple units enables you to split your home into several zones that are independently temperature controlled. As the name implies, this system also doesn’t require ducts or vents, meaning it can be installed in any home or building.
Each component of an air conditioner plays a crucial role in helping it work properly. If any one of these components malfunctions, it could cause the system to cool less efficiently. Therm Ayre’s technicians will keep an eye on every element of your AC system to ensure your space is cool and comfortable all summer long.
The evaporator coil is on the AC unit’s cool side, which helps cool the air in your home. Liquid refrigerant fills the evaporator coils, with a fan blowing behind them. This cooled air flows through the ducts and into your space.
When an evaporator coil goes bad, your air conditioner won’t be able to cool your space efficiently—if at all. Here are a few ways to tell if it needs to be replaced:
Your furnace is older and/or generating soot
The compressor is responsible for transferring heat from the inside of your home to the outside so it can be replaced with cooler air.
Indications your compressor is malfunctioning include:
The expansion valve is right between the evaporator and the condenser. It converts refrigerant into gas to flow into the evaporator coils and siphon cool air through your AC ducts.
If you’re experiencing AC problems, your expansion valve may be the culprit if:
The condenser is responsible for converting the refrigerant in your unit from gas back to liquid. This process helps move heat out of the unit, which keeps the unit from overheating and helps cool your home more efficiently.
Your air conditioner can’t function properly with a faulty condenser. If you experience the following problems, it may need to be replaced:
