HVAC systems can operate 24/7 and that means they need routine maintenance. It is critical to ensure that you are doing regular HVAC maintenance, since every part of the air conditioner and heater needs to be maintained in order to be efficient and to save you money.
Air Filters & Indoor Coil
The system needs to remain clean, in order to maintain proper air flow and to reduce the risk of mold building in the AC unit. When dirt becomes packed in the area, it could become clogged and that means it will need to work harder to cool off the house, increasing the cost of cooling each day that it runs.
Usually found on the outside of a building, this is where the transfer of heat will take place. Here, the pressure of the refrigerant is kept low and the compressor is then protected in this area. That ensures that the air conditioner unit runs more effectively and with greater efficiency. As the coil does become exposed, you do need to do routine cleaning.
All the moving parts in the air conditioner should be properly lubricated. A trained HVAC system technician will know which of the parts need to be lubricated and how to handle this, even between regular maintenance schedules.
As they age, electrical connections can loosen and this can cause heat to build up. Often, this will lead to the failure of a unit. If this is going to happen, ti will occur during the hottest part of the summer, or the coldest point of winter. It is important to ensure that the electrical connections in the system are looked over and tightened as part of your routine maintenance.
Your heating and cooling pump system require refrigerant to operate properly. It is critical to ensure that you maintain the right levels of coolant within the system. Having too little can cause damage to the compressor. Having too much can actually cause just as much damage.
