Like any major system, HVAC systems require preventative maintenance to stay in good working order. Units require different kinds of maintenance based on whether they are located indoors or outdoors. With outdoor units, it is important to check certain components such as the compressor and its tubing, the control box and its wires, accessories and connections, and the fan motor and blades to determine if there is any wear and tear. It is also important to examine the coil and cabinet and clean these components when necessary, being sure to remove any dirt, leaves, or other unwanted debris from the area. It is also essential to verify the unit has the proper refrigerant level and to make any necessary adjustments. Be sure to check the base pan and clear any obstructed drain openings.
Indoor units require additional maintenance including checking the ductwork for leaks, cleaning the combustion blower housing, replacing or cleaning air filters, and thoroughly checking the flue system. It is also important to turn the system on and check for any unusual noise or odors, as well as monitor the system’s operation. While the system is running, it is also necessary to measure other features including the dry and wet bulb temperatures, the high and low side pressures, and the temperature rise. It is a good idea to have a professional perform this routine maintenance twice per year.
Signs You Need an HVAC Repair
When your HVAC system stops putting out cold air, or you notice unusual odors or noises coming from your system, it’s time to bring in a professional to provide repair services. If you find moisture in places around your system where it doesn’t belong or if you spot a leak near your system, have a qualified technician take a look. Inefficient airflow can also indicate a problem with your HVAC system. If you notice that different parts of your home are at very different temperatures, there may be an issue with your thermostat.
Tips for the Best Temperature to Save Money
Although everyone enjoys a comfortable indoor climate, it is also nice to save money on monthly utility bills. Energy Star recommends keeping your home at 78 degrees. If you find this temperature setting to be too warm, using ceiling fans or electric fans can help provide relief. Taking care to use the dryer and stove during cooler parts of the day also keeps your house from becoming too warm. Empire Refrigeration can provide installation of AC units and many other HVAC services.
