The Importance of HVAC Maintenance

hvac maintenance
 
We all know the importance of regular maintenance for our cars; you wouldn't go for more than a year without getting an oil change. Similarly, you shouldn't ignore the maintenance needed for your heating and air conditioning equipment! 
 
What Does HVAC Maintenance Consist Of?
 
Your HVAC equipment needs a checkup every so often. Usually, we recommend a spring tune-up for your air conditioning unit and a fall tune-up for your heating equipment. This tune-up consists of:
 

Checking the Cooling Equipment For:

 
  • Thermostat operations
  • Condenser drain
  • Indoor blower motor
  • Condition of the filter
  • Condenser coil
  • AMP draw compressor
  • Refrigerant levels
  • Pressure and super heat
  • Electrical wiring 
 

Checking the Heating Equipment For:

 
  • Thermostat operation
  • Burners and compartment 
  • Flame sensor
  • Flue pipe inspection
  • Safety controls
  • Ignition and flame
  • Indoor blower motor (oil if necessary)
  • Combustion motor fan
 
Fall is a great time to get your heating unit checked for optimum usage; otherwise, you may find yourself without heat once winter hits. 
 

Save Money on your HVAC Equipment

 
Not only does regular HVAC maintenance ensure you will not be without heat or air, but it can also help you save money in the long run. By keeping up with your HVAC maintenance, you are preventing any big breakdowns that could cost a lot of money to repair and even more to replace!

Did you know the key to cooling your home is "dehumidification" in the hot summer months, and that's precisely the logic of air conditioning/condenser units? Consider These Things For Dehumidification In Your Home Many homeowners want to adjust their thermostat down further when hot/humid days in NE/Central Ohio are sweltering. One of the most important things to consider is to leave the thermostat somewhat stable during the Air Conditioning season. At 95 degrees, it's best to have your thermostat remain steady as an 85-degree day.  Your home's HVAC equipment is rated for the home design and size, house positioning, area location in the US, and typical high/average temperatures, along with building materials and HVAC duct designs used in construction, so most equipment will be rated to achieve 20+ degrees of cooling differences from outside to inside temp's. Example: At 96 degrees/90% humidity outside, earning 70 degrees inside can be tough on equipment. Still, it will feel very relaxed & comfortable when entering the home from the outside, even if the inside temperature is 75 degrees. Of course, you want the equipment to be clean and running well, but lowering the thermostat may be useless during those few days in Ohio when extreme temperatures hit. Clean filters and annual maintenance are critical to keeping units operating effectively. Tips To Keep In Mind To Help Dehumidify Your Home Besides the information listed above, here are som
