Learning About Commercial HVAC Systems

Hello, my name is Jacob. I would like to talk about proper installation and repair of the HVAC system in your commercial building. Full scale HVAC systems for commercial buildings require ongoing maintenance and repairs to keep every floor and room at a comfortable temperature. These temperature control systems also control the air quality in the building by sending the airflow through filter elements. My site will cover all aspects of the upkeep needed for these systems. I will also talk about the benefits of keeping your air quality and temperatures at desirable levels. Thanks for coming to visit my website.

Ways To Keep Your Residential AC Unit Running At Its Peak

Isaiah Chapman

Air conditioners play a huge part in keeping the interior environment of buildings cool for everyone's comfort and enjoyment. They, however, need to be properly looked after to keep operating efficiently and reliably.

Besides AC installation, AC contractors can provide a variety of services designed to maximize the performance and lifespan of air conditioning systems. Here are some essential AC services that can help keep your residential AC unit running at its peak. 

Cleaning or Replacement of Dirty AC Filters

The condition of your AC system's filter is critical to its performance. A dirty, clogged filter will restrict the normal flow of air entering your home's cooling system, thus hurting the efficiency of the system.

Cleaning or replacing dirty filters is a great way to avoid airflow issues that may prevent your AC unit from running at peak efficiency. Whether to clean or replace your filter depends on the type of filter you have. Certain types of filters can be cleaned and reused while others are designed to be used only once.

Cleaning of Dirty Coils

When a dirty filter isn't replaced soon enough, the air that passes through the filter may transfer dirt directly into the evaporator coils. This will hurt the coils' ability to absorb heat from the hot air inside your house.

Condenser coils can also get dirty pretty easily because they're usually located outside. Dirty condenser coils aren't effective at their job of removing heat from the refrigerant flowing through them.

An AC technician can clean your dirty evaporator and condenser coils to ensure they don't undermine the cooling performance of your AC system.

Checking Refrigerant Level

All AC systems contain refrigerant in their copper coils — evaporator and condenser coils. The main purpose of the fluid is to facilitate the absorption and eventual removal of heat from the air that circulates inside your home.

The refrigerant flowing through the evaporator coils absorbs heat from the air before the heat can be extracted by being passed through the condenser coils located in the outdoor unit of your AC system.

A residential AC system isn't designed to run out of refrigerant. However, refrigerant levels may drop if there is a leak within the system. An AC technician can check if your AC unit has enough refrigerant. If not, they may recommend that you get it inspected for leaks and repaired.

The maintenance requirements of your AC system may vary depending on the type of system you have in your home. Talk to a professional AC technician near you about your specific AC care needs today.
