Preventative HVAC Maintenance
The benefits of annual preventive maintenance checkups on your central air-conditioning system far outweigh the costs of repair service. With regular preventive maintenance checkups, you can lower your energy bills and extend the life of your unit. During high usage months in the winter or summer, check your air filters at least once a month and change them as needed.
HVAC Forced Air Systems
Forced air systems are those that use air to distribute the heat throughout the building. The system uses a series of ducts to carry the heated air to vents placed in individual rooms or other areas of your home. A thermostat activates or deactivates the system to maintain a desired, preset temperature.
Heat Pump Systems
Heat pumps and central air conditioning systems incorporate a filter or filter system to prevent dirt and other debris from contaminating the evaporator coils. Changing the filter regularly helps to maintain a clean evaporator coil and allows the air to flow easily. A dirty coil with a restricted airflow can cause your system to work harder to distribute the conditioned air, leading to higher energy use, energy costs and shorten the expected life span of the system.
Central Air Conditioner Repair & Maintenance
Central air conditioners require a high degree of training, knowledge, and experience to repair properly. Both of the main components—the evaporator and the condenser—are sealed units; therefore, special training and tools are required to service them. To maintain peak performance and efficiency of your central air conditioning system, schedule an annual inspection.
Air Conditioner Short Cycling
It is perfectly normal for your air conditioner to cycle on and off to maintain a set temperature throughout your home. However, if you notice that it is turning on and off more frequently than usual and the outside temperature is not particularly warmer than normal, it is possible that your unit is malfunctioning. Short cycling puts extra stress on your air conditioner, and can cause it to fail entirely if not handled quickly.
New Air Conditioner Installation
The first step in getting a new air conditioner unit installed is determining what size you’ll need. You don’t want one without sufficient power to cool your home, and getting an air conditioner that’s too big can be more expensive and less comfortable.
