Air Conditioning

While many people outside of Colorado think we are buried in snow all year, Denver metro residents know that that our summers can get sizzling hot. Air conditioning systems usually wait until the hottest days of the year to fizzle out, which can send you into a panic mode to return cooler air to your home. In most cases we can identify the root problems behind your air conditioning malfunction the same day you call and provide solutions to get your home cool and comfortable again. At Wheeler’s Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, our NATE-certified technicians provide the full spectrum of air conditioning services, including:
  • Diagnostics
  • Repair
  • Installation
  • Routine maintenance and service
  • Cleaning and optimization
To properly identify the reasons behind why your air conditioning system failed (and to reduce the chance of failure in the future), we always check the following:
  • Overall condition and health of the HVAC system
  • Dirty indoor coil or outdoor condenser
  • Airflow provisions
  • Filters
  • Blower and fan alignment
  • Damaged coil fins
  • Compressor terminals and service ports condition
  • Subcooling and superheat of refrigerants, operating pressures and temperatures
  • Electrical supply voltage, frayed or worn wiring, contactors, capacitor and sensors
  • Condensate drains, trap, overflows, and sensors
  • Temperature drop of air at the vent registers
In some cases we can repair the units to full working order; however, if the system is old, inefficient or parts are unavailable, it may be more cost-effective to purchase a new, more energy-efficient unit.  We provide you with advantage and disadvantage of both options repair or replacement so you can make an educated decision for your home.

A/C Load Calculations

When replacing or installing an air conditioning unit, a customized load calculation for your home is the first step in making sure that your air conditioning unit is properly sized. We use the industry-leading,ACCA-Certified Manual-J Load Calculation Program to provide the most accurate assessment of your home. Every home is different; a true load calculation considers the thermal load placed on your home in relation to its orientation and position, the type of window and amount of sun exposure, the type of building materials of which your home is constructed, the square footage of rooms and the home and the habits of your family. High load areas in the home can then be identified and specifically addressed to make your home more comfortable and efficient. After completing load calculations we typically find that many homes have the wrong size equipment. Our goal is to make your air conditioning unit as effective as possible, saving you money on your monthly cooling bills. We can provide you with the information you need to decide the best course of action for your family’s comfort and your budget, such as:
  • Using Programmable thermostats and optimal settings
  • A/C units that are properly sized for your home
  • A/C maintenance schedules to keep your unit and vents clean
  • Multiple stage units
