HVAC Repairs and Service

One of the most fundamental ways for homeowners to save a noticeable amount of money in the long run is by having routine mechanical maintenance on their HVAC systems. This will reduce your monthly energy expenses dramatically. At first glance, it might seem pricey to have your HVAC system routinely serviced; it will definitely save you money in the future by lowering the costs of running and will result in fewer call outs for repairs.

FAQs about repairing and servicing your HVAC system:

Why does my system require refrigerant if it’s not a refrigerator?

Before summer arrives, your HVAC system must have refrigerant in it. It is very much the same function as coolant for a car’s engine. Without this vital ingredient, the machine will overheat and stop running. The levels of coolant in your HVAC system can be assessed during routing maintenance by an engineer or certified HVAC repairperson. In the case of your system being fueled by environmentally unfriendly substances, such as chlorofluorocarbon (CFCs), you will be required to switch your cooling mechanism to a more environmentally sound or “greener” option.

What is the best temperature to run my air conditioner at during summer?

It is advisable during hot weather to not run your air conditioner constantly on the coolest level. Just by turning up the temperature two degrees, you can dramatically prolong the life of your HVAC system.

Since we have air conditioning, we don’t really need our old ceiling fans anymore, right?

It is a good idea to install central ceiling fans in each room of the house or building. These fans will work in connection with your air conditioning system and will enhance its functionality, which will allow it to conserve more energy while performing at a higher level.

Is it very important to check my ductwork or filters?

It is in your best interest and the interest of your HVAC to have all heating ducts cleaned thoroughly before the cold seasons approach and then to replace the heating filter on a monthly basis thereafter. If the filters are clogged or dirty, your HVAC’s system will not function as efficiently as possible.

Does my furnace affect the overall HVAC system? Should it also be serviced?

Having your furnace thoroughly inspected before the onset of the cooler season is vital to the overall performance of your HVAC. If the furnace is not functioning properly, it could contribute to inadequate system performance, wasted energy as well as carbon monoxide poisoning. This can be fatal or cause long-term health problems.
