What is inspected during professional air conditioner maintenance call?
Your air conditioning unit will experience problems over time. However, you can minimize problems with regular maintenance.
What we cover during routine inspections:
Power connections: Improperly grounded electrical connections and excessively high voltage can cause fires and other accidents. We will check to make sure all components of your air conditioner are properly set up and connected.
Condensate drain: A blocked condensate drain can lead to leaking from your evaporator drip pan, causing significant water damage and even mold or other bacterial growth in your home. Let us make sure your condensate drain is clear of all debris so you can enjoy fresh, cool air.
Lubricant and refrigerant levels: Lack of lubrication creates friction between parts of your air conditioner. Aside from excessive wear and prolonged overheating that can lead to premature system failure, constantly working against opposing forces consumes an enormous amount of energy. Likewise, an imbalance in refrigerant levels will lead to an inefficient air conditioner.
Condenser and evaporator coils: According to the Environmental Protection Agency, just 1/10th of a centimeter of dust on your air conditioner’s coils decreases the condenser’s efficiency by 21 percent. With the average American household spending around $1,500 per year on heating and cooling, keeping your condenser and evaporator coils clean can help you save $315 each year. Best Heating and Air Conditioning LLC provides comprehensive cleaning services to keep your system working at its best.
Blower motor: The blower motor helps to push cool air into your home. Without proper airflow, the blower motor’s efficiency decreases by an average of 15 percent. During inspection, we will ensure your unit is working properly so you can stay comfortable.
Why is filter replacement so important?
Air conditioning filters prevent dust from accumulating on fragile interior parts. When these get too clogged to do their job properly, airflow diminishes and the fan blades can start to suck debris into your air conditioning system.
If your air filter is severely clogged, contact us for professional replacement.
What are the benefits of ductless mini split systems?
Ductless mini split air conditioners do not feature extensive ductwork, making them more convenient to install. Ductless systems house small evaporators installed on interior walls near baseboards or ceilings. The entire assembly links to an exterior compressor via tubes that remove humidity and recirculate refrigerant.
Benefits of installing a ductless mini split:
Energy efficiency: Mini split systems are Energy Star rated by the EPA as consuming at least 15 percent less energy than other types of systems.
Targeted cooling: Due to interior installation and a smaller size, ductless mini splits cool specific areas instead of an entire house. This increased cooling efficiency can qualify homeowners for a federal tax credit.
Easy installation: You will not have to lug large furnaces or evaporators into tiny crawl spaces or attics. Nor do you have to hire contractors to tear out drywall to install ducts and vents, or to reseal gaps between window ledges and bottom surfaces. This keeps a lid on labor and energy costs, while providing greater peace of mind from enhanced security.
Quiet operation: Some ductless mini splits operate at noise levels as low as 19 decibels, which is softer than a human whisper.
What are some easy ways to save on your cooling costs?
While regular maintenance from your air conditioning technician is recommended, there are still simple tasks you can do on your end to ensure your cooling system stays efficient.
Keep entrances and exits free of foreign matter and debris. Work from the inside out by starting with the filter first. Replace or wash air filters at least every 90 days, or monthly if you live in smoggy or dusty surroundings.
Wipe down your grille covers or central HVAC duct openings. Use a regular vacuum cleaner hose attachment to dislodge dust particles from between vent fins.
Finally, make sure the area around your outdoor HVAC unit is well maintained. Rake any leaves or mow tall grass around the units. You can also fill in gaps between air conduits and attic insulation, door casings, or windowsills with foam.
If you have any questions about better maintaining your system, let us know and we will provide you with a comprehensive guide to easy maintenance steps you can carry out.
