Casteel Heating and Cooling offers direction and makes recommendation based on information that is backed up by testing and experience. One of the first tests we perform when replacing your HVAC unit is a Manual J “Residential Load Calculation.” This test ensures that your new unit is sized properly for your home.

www.energysavers.gov recommends the following:

Correct system sizing requires considering many factors other than simply reading the nameplate of the existing unit. Key factors for correctly sizing a heating and cooling system include the following:

  • The local climate
  • Size, shape, and orientation of the house
  • Insulation levels
  • Window area, location, and type
  • Air infiltration rates
  • The number and ages of occupants
  • Occupant comfort preferences
  • The types and efficiencies of lights and major home appliances (which give off heat).

Make sure that anytime you’re considering hiring an HVAC contractor you insist on having the Manual J Residential Load Calculation performed prior to signing any contract. At Casteel Heating and Cooling, we not only perform the Load Calculations but we also perform these tests as well:

  • Room by Room Airflow CalculationCasteel Heating and Cooling
  • Air Duct Leakage Calculation
  • Air Flow Leakage Reduction Guarantee
  • Infiltrometer Blower Door Test

We’ll do thorough research and testing before we recommend the right HVAC unit for you!  Call us today at 770-565-5884 Contact us online .

Casteel…world class service…unmatched quality!

The lights in my home dim when my cooling unit turns on. Does this mean there is a problem with my unit or my breaker panel?

Air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers, furnaces and other devices that have large motors require large amounts of power when the motor first starts. Once the motor is spinning, the energy requirement drops down.

This instantaneous need for motor shaft speed can cause a momentary dimming of your lights. AC units come equipped with start-up capacitors. These give the motor an electric boost when it first starts up. But over time, these capacitors can get weak and become ineffective. Eventually the power draw can cause circuit breakers protecting the wiring to the units to trip.

Your air conditioning system may also be overcharged with refrigerant. Overcharging puts stress on the compressor, and in turn the motor, when it tries to get the compressor engine moving.

Excessive dimming can also be caused by a loose neutral wire in the breaker box. Your AC serviceman can check for overcharging of your AC unit, properly working start-up capacitors and loose neutral wire connections.

Following these tips will help you reduce your energy costs:

Air Conditioner

  • Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean cooler when it comes to room air conditioners. In fact, a unit
    that is too large for the room operates less efficiently than one that is properly sized.
  • Don’t switch the unit off and on. Window units work best when left to run for long periods.
  • Don’t keep the unit running at the coldest setting. Set the thermostat as high as is comfortable.
  • Don’t put lamps or TVs near the air conditioner thermostat.
  • Use interior fans to circulate cooled air more effectively through the house.

Best value around
 
Installed a replacement a/c unit for one that died. Explained everything including what the previous contractor had done to cut corners. Installers treated the house as if it was their own. Polite, neat and extremely thorough, couldn’t have had an easier install.
The best there is
From estimates, to price, to actual installation, Casteel and Ryan Huprich made it easy and simple. The Trane system is fantastic. Considering the agony of installing/paying for a new A/C and Htg system, it couldn’t be better. Their guarantee and employees reflect their quality. Allen Walters, Roswell, GA.
