goettl-techniciansKeeping cool is a major priority around here—the summers are just too hot to take any chances with the overall performance quality of your air conditioning system.

And air conditioning does not come for free, either. And, the fact is that many homeowners cannot simply invest in expensive new systems in order to boost their efficiency levels.

Monday, March 19th, 2018

goettl-techniciansAt Goettl Air Conditioning Las Vegas, we install, tune up, and repair a lot of air conditioners all throughout the year.

Why Is My AC So Noisy?

Monday, October 30th, 2017

Why Is My AC So Noisy?Do you really need us to tell you that your AC in Las Vegas, NV really needs to work at peak performance levels? Probably not, considering how brutally hot it can be here in this part of the country. Unfortunately, there are a lot of homeowners out there that ignore signs of potentially serious trouble with their air conditioning systems. Why?

This could not be further from the truth in reality, though. If your air conditioner is exhibiting any signs that it is in trouble, including strange, new, or louder than usual sounds, then you should contact a professional HVAC technician as soon as possible.

AC-technician-workingThere are certain problems that you could ignore with your air conditioning system — though we want to make clear that no problem, no matter how minor you may think it is, should ever be ignored!

Do I Have a Refrigerant Leak?

Monday, July 24th, 2017

man-with-fanThe quick answer to the question posed in the title of this blog is: hopefully not. Unfortunately, there is no way in which to guarantee that you will never run into a refrigerant leak with your home cooling system. Because this can be one of the most serious, most potentially damaging problems that you could encounter with your air conditioning system, it is important that you have it resolved promptly. We have some tips to help you recognize the signs of a refrigerant leak.

It is important to remember that your air conditioner does not actually consume refrigerant in the way that a car consumes gasoline. Refrigerant is instead cycled through the system over and over again, and its evaporation in the evaporator coil — and condensing in the condenser coil — is what allows for the cooling process in the first place. If your system is low on refrigerant, you have a leak in your air conditioner in Summerlin, NV.
