9 Ways an AZ Air Conditioning Contractor Can Improve Your A/C
When an Arizona air conditioning service contractor performs an inspection on your home’s HVAC system, he takes the time to check all of the integral components that are essential to proper operation and efficiency. During this inspection, the HVAC inspector will usually perform the following tasks:
1.) Test the thermostat to ensure that it is effectively communicating with your HVAC system so that it starts, operates and shuts off properly. If you have a programmable thermostat, the contractor can also program it according to your lifestyle so your system only runs when you need it most.
2.) Check and clean out the system’s water drain. A plugged drain can cause an overflow of condensation water will may eventually damage your floors or walls.
3.) Check moving parts for proper lubrication and lubricate if necessary. If movable parts are grinding for lack of lubrication, it can cause your HVAC unit to run less efficiently and eventually result in frequent costly repairs.
4.) Check all electrical connections and tighten if necessary. Loose or bad electrical connections are dangerous and can damage the sensitive components of your HVAC system.
5.) Measure the system’s voltage to ensure all circuits are getting the right voltage. If your HVAC system isn’t receiving the proper voltage in the right components, it won’t operate the way it’s designed to and eventually the components will be ruined and need to be replaced.
6.) Check and adjust the blower components for optimum air flow. Poor air flow can reduce your system’s efficiency by 15% or more.
7.) Check and clean the Evaporator and Condenser coils. Dirty coils will cause your system to run longer and work harder, the results of which you will see on your monthly utility bill.
8.) Replace the air filter. This should be done monthly by the homeowner to reduce allergens and pollutants in the home and to ensure maximum air flow.
9.) Educate the homeowner on how to efficiently operate their HVAC unit to ensure comfort in the home and a lower utility bill.
