The Importance of HVAC Maintenance
Why Is Air Conditioning
The air conditioning system inside your home is a multifaceted arrangement of equipment, parts, and energy sources that work together to deliver the precise temperature you want to stay comfortable. Indoor air temperature is vital to overall home comfort, so it is important to maintain your air conditioning system to optimal operating standards. Below we will share why it is so crucial to keep up maintenance on your home air conditioning system.
How Your A/C System
Your air conditioning system is most likely hidden, all you may see is the thermostat on the wall, and all you feel is the temperature you have chosen. Behind the scenes, however, there are a series of operations working to condition the air in order to keep you comfortable.
To begin, the air supply inside your house is pulled through a vented register and sent to the furnace, which is responsible for both heating and cooling. After the air has been conditioned it travels through a network of ducts, usually located in the attic, and sent out through vents in each room.
Once the indoor air supply has reached the furnace, it then travels through an air filter that removes the airborne particles and pathogens. After these particles are captured by the filter, the clean air is pushed by the blower motor through the furnace to be conditioned. The air then travels through the evaporator coils, which receive compressed gas called refrigerant from the compressor, which is located outdoors.
The compressed refrigerant then cools the evaporator coils, which causes the air passing through it to be cooled.
Lack Of Maintenance Causes Expensive Problems
Air conditioning is one connected process. As a result of this, a problem or imbalance in one part of the process can cause major issues and create a lack of conditioned air, or air that is not conditioned to your expectations. Regular use of an air conditioning system along with normal vibrations of the equipment, fluctuating voltage or surges, drastic outdoor temperature changes, dirt/grass or insects, etc. all take a toll on the equipment and require regular inspection to ensure proper function. Neglecting regular maintenance check-ups can lead to costlier calls when the system stops performing at its peak or breaks down.
Regular Maintenance Leads to Longer Lasting Equipment
A lot of homeowners neglect regular A/C maintenance, believing it will be a big hassle or an unnecessary expense. Here at Fresh Air HVAC, we ensure timeliness, efficiency, and a valuable investment. Avoid being stuck at home with a broken A/C during the hot summer months or unpredictable fall/winter season. Regular air conditioning maintenance is a much more worthwhile investment in the long run. You can avoid unexpected malfunctions and extend the lifespan of your air conditioning equipment which will cut down on the unnecessary expense of replacing the whole unit due to lack of maintenance! You will also save money on your energy bill by letting us keep your equipment running at peak efficiency.
