Hvac Maintenance & Services

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Whether you are tired of the continuous heat spell or it is the chilly winter winds that is making you restless, installing an HVAC system will solve all your problems. During the summer season, it will extract the hot air from inside the house and replace it with a cold and conditioned air, thus making the inside temperature comfortable. Similarly, during the winter season, the heating element of the HVAC system becomes functional and it extracts out the cold air from inside the house and it gets replaced by a warm comfortable air.

When an HVAC system functions at its full efficiency, the homeowners enjoy absolute thermal comfort but the problem arises when the system starts malfunctioning. Most of the times, when an HVAC system does not function properly, it becomes necessary to get in touch with an HVAC expert. This is because HVAC systems are quite complex in nature. However, you can prevent the occurrence of such an incident if you take good care of the HVAC system. Proper maintenance of an HVAC system is an absolute necessity to ensure that it functions at its full efficiency.

Some of the things that you can do to stay away from an expensive HVAC repair activity are the following:

Changing the filters regularly: This is an important step that every homeowner must keep in mind. Dirty filters means the system has to work harder to reach a similar level of efficiency. As a result the system experiences higher wear and tear, thus increasing the chances of breakdown. In fact, it is recommended that HVAC filters must be changed after every three months.

You should always carry out a visual inspection of the system so that you can point out if the system needs any professional assistance. The sooner you find out the better it is for the system as well as for your pocket.

All homeowners must be a little careful with the thermostat. Turning the thermostat one or two degrees higher during the summer and a few degrees lower in the winter can save a lot of wear and tear in the machine.

During summer, spring and fall one must clear all kinds of debris like twigs, leaves, and pollen from top and sides of the outdoor unit. This is because accumulation of such debris will block proper airflow to and fro the system.

You should also ensure that the outdoor unit are on firm and level ground or pads.

It is a good practice to pour a cup of bleach mixed water down the air-conditioner condensate drain. This will prevent the accumulation of mold and algae which in turn will keep the drain clog free.

The battery in your home’s carbon monoxide detector should be replaced annually.

Besides all these DIY methods it is a good idea to call an HVAC expert two times in a year to inspect the HVAC system because this way you can be sure that you will not have to face any sudden breakdown of the system.
