Regardless of whether it is hot or cold, summer or winter, 30 degrees Fahrenheit or 40 degrees Celsius, maintaining a comfortable temperature inside of your commercial or residential property will require that you service your hvac equipment regularly. Here is a checklist for maintaining your system. However, if you are currently experiencing problems with maintaining the temperature of your property, we suggest that you contact us immediately and schedule an appointment for your free service call and heating ventilation cooling and air conditioner tune up inspection.
Before we begin, an easy and effective procedure to maintaining your hvac system and its components is to regularly check the air filter and remove any dust or debris that may be disrupting the air flow. Next, even if the air filter looks clean and you have been keeping it free from dust and debris, you should replace the air filter every three to six months, or in accordance with the recommendations of its manufacture; whichever comes first.
Your air conditioner has five major components, the thermostat, evaporator, condenser, expansion valve and compressor. To understand where all of these parts are located, think of your system as two coils and a valve: a cold coil and a hot coil on each side, with an expansion valve that sits between both coils and regulates the amount of compressed liquid refrigerant that moves into the evaporator.
On the cold side, an evaporator and fan will blow air over the cold coils and then push the cold air through the vents. On the hot side, a compressor, condenser and blower fan will push the hot air from the compressed refrigerant through the vents and into the property.
