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.

At Casteel Heating and Cooling we respect the fact that you are inviting us into your home to service, repair or replace your heating and air conditioning system. Part of respecting your home is to make sure we leave the work area cleaner than it was before we started. We realize having any type of work done in the home is an inconvenience, and that’s why we spend countless hours training our employees how to protect and care for a home while they’re working. We do not want to compound the inconvenience to the homeowner by tracking in dirt, smudging walls, damaging bushes and landscape, disturbing antiques in attics or leaving a dusty and dirty house.

Whether it’s protecting your floors by wearing shoe covers, covering antiques in an attic, or vacuuming the work area frequently for dust, Casteel will do whatever it takes to ensure your home is left spotless. In addition, if you are not 100% satisfied with how we left your home we will gladly pay to have it professionally cleaned – and that’s the Casteel Clean Home Guarantee!

…because we’re perfectionists!

Finally an honest HVAC contractor

We have always said that if a contractor could just be on time, deliver what we pay for, not disappear after the sale, and be honest they would be successful and shine brighter than all the others. Casteel delivered it all.

Honest and outstanding service!!!!!!!!

Last year (another contractor) told us we would have to replace our entire AC unit. I called Casteel when our unit needed service and was SOOOOO glad that I did. They were so honest and thorough that my unit only needed some maintenance. I bought the annual service plan and will gladly pay that to have my units maintained each year by Casteel. Thank you for your honesty and integrity!!!

When you refer a friend, family member or co-worker, we know you’re putting your faith in us. Good business is built on referrals and we appreciate your trust in Casteel Heating and Cooling, Inc.
