Thanks to Candu, you don’t have to spend hours scouring online reviews, asking friends and relatives for recommendations, or just rolling the dice on the first name that comes up in a web search. The Candu Pro Network includes thousands of professionals around the country who are trained and qualified to work on all brands and models of central air conditioners.

Types Serviced

There are two main types of central air conditioners. Most homeowners have split, ducted central air conditioning systems, which use a boxy outdoor condenser and compressor paired with an indoor coil. Refrigerant circulates through the system, cooling air that is then distributed through the home via ductwork. Heat pumps are a variation on this system that can both heat and cool your home.

Mini-split systems, or ductless systems, use an outdoor compressor and condenser connected to four or more blower units, or air handlers, indoors. The two parts are connected by a conduit for power, condensate drain lines, and refrigerant lines. Split systems aren’t technically central air, because each air handler has its own individual controls that you set to provide cooling to just the areas of your home where you need it.

No matter what type of central air conditioning you have, Candu can help you find the right service professional to fix it. When you need central air repair for your standard split system or ductless system, put your Candu Home membership to good use and book a service appointment.

Should You Repair Or Replace Your Central Air Conditioning Unit?

Your HVAC system is the most expensive home system to replace. A new split system, ducted central air conditioner costs an average of $4,631. So, it’s easy to make the choice between repair and replacement for most problems. Most people want to get the most use they can out of this expensive home system, understandably enough, so they wait until the unit is truly on its last leg before replacing it.

The lifespan of a central air conditioner is about 10 to 15 years, so if it’s 15 years old or older, you may want to plan to replace it sooner rather than later, especially if it starts breaking down more frequently. Did you just need central air repair last season, and this summer it’s broken down again? Probably time to replace.

You’ll also want to consider replacement if a repair is expensive. To figure out how much is too much to pay to repair your central air conditioning, multiply the cost of the repair by the age of the unit in years. If the result is more than the cost of a replacement in your area, then you may want to replace the unit instead. 

Not sure how much a central air replacement will cost you? A service professional from the Candu Pro Network can give you an estimate. They can also give you advice on how much life might be left in your unit.

Central A/C Maintenance

Like your furnace, your central air needs service every year. Even if you don’t think you have any problems with your unit, yearly service can keep it clean and running efficiently. Having a professional look at your central air conditioning unit every year gives them a chance to inspect each component for functioning and pinpoint repairs that need to be made to prevent an unexpected breakdown. 

Regular service ensures that your A/C unit functions with optimum efficiency, to save you money on your energy bill. It could also keep your air conditioning from going out in the middle of the summer, leaving you to sweat miserably as you wait, perhaps for days, for a local service professional to have time to look at the unit and diagnose the problem.

Don’t get caught without cooling this summer. As a customer of Candu, you’ll always have access to a nationwide network of service professionals to handle your air conditioning service and repairs.
