Do You Want To Fix Your Central HVAC System?
Do you enjoy having mechanical issues with your HVAC system? Any issue that is going to cause disruption to your comfort level and inconvenience your life it is a problem. There are so many different issues that can occur, it can be difficult to know where the problem is stemming from when an AC repair is needed.
Not only that, but a service call can be expensive. This is especially true if it happens overnight or on a weekend. Thankfully, the HVAC experts have shared some easy tips for fixing simple issues with your central HVAC system that will help reduce the likelihood of needing a technician.
Melt The Ice On The Drain Line
If you’re experiencing a refrigerant leak, the leaking liquid can freeze. Also, if the liquid is leaking anywhere near your system’s lines, it can cause those components to freeze as well.
This can cause your HVAC system to malfunction and not work properly. If this is the case, you want to make sure you are cleaning up any leaking refrigerant right away.
Not only that, but you want to make sure to melt the ice off of any HVAC components. Small heaters and hand warmers help to eliminate this issue, as well. Overall, however, you want to make sure that you have a technician take a look at the leak as soon as possible.
Clean The Outdoor Units
When you’re going about your normal chores, cleaning the outdoor HVAC unit usually falls below the radar. As it’s typically not seen that often, it can be forgotten about. Unfortunately, when the system is left to fend for itself, the debris that accumulates on or near it can cause a lot of issues.
To keep your system working properly, you want to make sure that you are cleaning any debris and other items away from your outdoor unit. Wipe it down as often as possible and make sure there are no branches, leaves, or other items around. Not only can dust and other gunk to clog the inner mechanisms, but tree branches and limbs can cause actual damage.
Always Schedule Maintenance
The most important thing that you can do for your HVAC system is to schedule maintenance. It is recommended you have your central air condition system cleaned up and serviced annually.
This will keep your system running at an optimal level. It will also reduce the likelihood of repairs, lower your heating costs, and extend the life of your unit.
Not only that but having preventative maintenance done will allow your unit to work more effectively. Even if you have a new HVAC system in your home, preventative maintenance is important. As mentioned, it can extend the life of your system and also keep your manufacturer's warranty in good standing.
Depending on the brand you choose many warranties and require that you have annual maintenance performed to keep the warranty intact. Overall, maintenance on your HVAC system will ensure that you do not wake up to a freezing house during the cold months of the year or a sauna in the summer.
