At Relaxed Heating & Air Inc., we're proud of our 15+ years of experience in providing top-quality HVAC services to residents across Los Angeles County. Our team of fully licensed and qualified technicians is always ready to tackle any HVAC project, no matter how big or small. In this success story, we'll share how we helped our customer Michael in Sierra Madre transform his apartment's air comfort and efficiency by upgrading his entire HVAC system. This project involved replacing the condenser unit and evaporator coils, upgrading the line set, installing an R22 TXV, and upgrading the furnace due to size restrictions. The result? Improved reliability, quieter operation, lower maintenance costs, enhanced air comfort, reduced energy costs, and better air quality.

Finding the Cause of Inefficiency

Michael contacted us after his home warranty company referred him to our services. He was experiencing issues with his apartment's central air conditioning system – it was no longer providing adequate cooling and seemed to be struggling overall. Upon arriving at Michael's apartment on E Sierra Madre Blvd, our technicians tested the existing system and discovered that there was no refrigerant in it. To determine the cause of this issue, they filled the system with nitrogen at 380 pressure to pinpoint the location of the leak. The leak was traced back to the evaporator coils and kings valve, which meant that a full system upgrade was necessary.

Recommending and Implementing A Comprehensive Solution

As part of our commitment to providing customized solutions for our clients, we recommended replacing the condenser unit and evaporator coils to address the leak issue. Additionally, we advised upgrading the line set, as it was too small (1/4 instead of the required 3/8) for optimal system performance. Furthermore, we also suggested installing an R22 TXV (Thermal Expansion Valve) to better regulate refrigerant flow and improve overall efficiency. Lastly, due to size restrictions in Michael's apartment, our team recommended upgrading his furnace as well. Michael agreed to these recommendations, and our technicians quickly got to work on implementing this comprehensive solution.

A Successful Same-Day Upgrade for Enhanced Comfort and Efficiency

Thanks to the expertise of our technicians, they were able to complete the full HVAC upgrade within a single day. This same-day service allowed Michael to enjoy immediate improvements in his apartment's air comfort without any prolonged disruptions or inconveniences. The upgraded HVAC system delivered numerous benefits for Michael and his apartment:

  • Improved reliability: With a new condenser unit, evaporator coils, and furnace in place, Michael's upgraded HVAC system is less prone to breakdowns.
  • Quieter operation: The new components ensure a quieter system with reduced noise levels.
  • Lower maintenance costs: The upgrades minimize potential repair costs down the line.
  • Enhanced air comfort: The improved HVAC system provides consistent cooling throughout Michael's apartment.
  • Reduced energy costs: The efficient performance of the upgraded components translates into lower energy bills for Michael.
  • Better air quality: The updated system promotes healthier indoor air quality in the apartment.
