A common central air conditioner problem D & M encounters is refrigerant leaks. Leaks can be difficult to locate and fix, and they can make your life a hassle because they usually shut down your central air conditioner. Let D & M Milwaukee quickly, conveniently repair your leak so you don’t have to worry. We locate air conditioner leaks in several ways. First, if the system is empty, we use a high pressure dry nitrogen charge and listen for the leak. If we cannot locate the leak, we inject a fluorescent dye into the air conditioning unit with a new charge of refrigerant. If the system continues to leak, we employ an ultra-violet light and search for evidence of the dye that leaked with the refrigerant. Our air conditioning repair techniques are precise, environmentally conscious, and safe for Milwaukee families. 

Once we determine the cause of the air conditioning leak, our Milwaukee technicians provide a fair estimate for the central air repair and fix it as soon as we can, so you can return to enjoying your refreshing indoor air despite Wisconsin’s oppressive summer humidity.

Air Conditioner FAQs

What is "high efficiency"?

The minimum efficiency for current air conditioners is 13 SEER. The minimum standard was raised from 10 to 13 in 2006, a 23% increase in energy efficiency requirements. Any rating above 15 SEER is considered high efficiency in the Milwaukee market - D & M Heating & Air Conditioning carries air conditioners up to SEER 21, which saves you monthly on energy bills. 

What is SEER?

SEER measures efficiency. The acronym stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. SEER rating is based on the cooling output of an air conditioner during a given cooling season. The output is divided by the energy input it consumed during that same time period. SEER reveals the cost effectiveness of your air conditioner. For example, a unit that is 10 to 15 years old is commonly a 10 SEER. Let's assume that unit costs 100.00 per month to run. A 13 SEER unit, running in the same month and conditions, would have done the same cooling work for about 77.00. D & M Heating and Air Conditioning's most efficient unit is a Carrier 21 SEER. For only 48.00 per month the Carrier model would perform the same as the other two. The high efficiency Carrier in this scenario would reduce your monthly air conditioning by over half! 

What refrigerants are used in air conditioners?

Refrigerants are chemicals that help air conditioners cool your home. Freon was once the prevalent air conditioning chemical, but it has declined in popularity because of detrimental effects on the environment. Freon was proven a main contributor to ozone depletion in the '90s. Its production is banned. By 2020, the FDA plans to phase freo out as an air conditioner refrigerant.

If your current air conditioner still uses Freon, you will eventually have to replace it with an air conditioner that runs on Puron® or an alternative air conditioning refrigerant. Our Milwaukee air conditioning experts will help you select a central air unit to cool your home with environmentally friendly refrigerants.  

What about the new refrigerant, Puron®?

Puron® is the replacement refrigerant in most manufacturers' residential air conditioning systems, including Carrier. Puron® air conditioning refrigerant is environmentally sound. It won't deplete the ozone layer. It was introduced in 1996, and Carrier was the first central air manufacturer to introduce this refrigerant in their air conditioner units. The cooling and performance of Puron® feels the same as other air conditioning refrigerants, if not better. 

Are larger air conditioners more efficient?

Having a larger air conditioning unit does not mean your house will be cooler. In fact, it may mean the opposite. The D & M Heating & Air Conditioning experts can zone your Milwaukee home to decide which air conditioning unit would be best for the size of your home and your cooling needs.

How can I make my home cooler without raising costs?

It is early spring, and Milwaukee is anticipating warmer weather in only a few months and then the humid Milwaukee air of the summer. D & M Air Heating and Air Conditioning wants you to save money on your central air bill this summer, so you have more money for your summer expenses like vacations, patio furniture and yard work equipment. Here are some air conditioning tips that D & M’s own central air technicians use in their homes each summer to save money on air conditioning. 

Enhance Air Circulation 

D & M Heating and Air Conditioning sells multiple Carrier central air units designed for maximum circulation. However, if a new air conditioner is not in your budget this summer try some home remedies to keep your central air bill low. Using ceiling fans to circulate your air, for example, helps. Since heat rises, ceiling fans recirculate warm air better than box fans on the floor.  

Seal Central Air Ducts 

Surprisingly, duct tape isn’t for ducts. Duct tape was invented during World War 2 for sealing ammunition boxes. If you use it on your air conditioning vents, your cool air will leak before it can recirculate in your home. The key to airtight, cost-effective sealing is mastic sealant or mastic tape.  Not all of your air conditioning ducts will be accessible because some may be hidden in ceiling panels, but you’ll enhance the efficiency of your central air system by sealing the ducts you can reach. 

Screen Your Windows 

Banish solar-heated air from your home with window screens. A variety of styles are available including transparent sheets made of a metallic substance that deflects heat and bears some of your air conditioner’s cooling burden. The US Department of Energy recommends screening all windows before the summer sun starts baking later in the year, especially windows facing east and west. The move can intercept up to 70% of solar energy, freeing your air conditioner to convert primarily thermal-heated air to that crisp, cool temperature you’ve come to love during sweltering Milwaukee summers.   

Vary Air Conditioner Fan Speed

Your air conditioning fan should usually be on high while your central air is running. However, if Milwaukee’s forecasters are predicting a humid day, reduce your fan speed to low. It will reduce moisture build-up in your air conditioning unit and relieve some of the conversion burden of your central air system.
