HVAC Maintenance Tips For Winter

HVAC Maintenance Tips For Winter in Chesapeake, VA

1. Replace Your Filters

Your filter must be free from dust and clogs to perform effectively. Replacing your filters regularly will ensure your HVAC unit will operate at its maximum potential.

2. Check For Any Obstruction

Check the surrounding of your outdoor unit. Make sure it is clear from debris, now, and ice in the top, sides, bottom and around it.

3. Coils Must Be Cleaned

Outdoor units collect dirt debris. Coils must be cleaned routinely during winter HVAC maintenance. Dirty coils are like clogged filters, they can hamper the performance of your unit. Use a water hose and a cleaning agent to clean the coils. Wash it from the inside out.

4. Blowers Must Be Dust-Free

Indoor blower drives the air out of the system. When the blower is dirty, air may not come out right even though the system seems functioning. Regularly inspect your blowers for dust buildup.

5. Duct Research

Duct systems come in different types. Make sure you are using the right size, otherwise, your HVAC may be breathing through a small hole. Common duct systems are below:

  • Sheet Metal – Durable and mold-resistant
  • Fiberglass Lined – preferred option when you need to prevent condensation
  • Fiberboard – offers sound proofing and thermal advantages
  • Flex – It's a flexible plastic over a metal coil. Low cost, lightweight and easy to setup

RESIDENTIAL HVAC: Forward Thinking of Maintaining The HVAC System Will Conserve Your Unit

Darren Kincaid - Tuesday, September 29, 2020
Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VA

It is better to understand how a residential heating and cooling system works. In this way, it is easier and faster to troubleshoot HVAC problems when the need arises. No need to panic and worry as you are guided by your little information on how to resolve the problem hence you will easily inform the technician of the problem incurred and immediately it will be resolved in just a short span of time.

If you have a faulty HVAC system in your home or there is one unit nearing the end of its life surely you will be paying more cost. It is for the reason that an old and malfunctioning AC consumes more energy than the normal working AC unit. Air conditioners require maintenance from a knowledgeable technician and from there it will be detected when you need to replace the entire system or maybe one of its components. Just one component or even a damaged filter will add much to your energy bills. Therefore, it is more advantageous if you take care of your AC unit in order to save repair costs and energy bills. In any case just brief information to know an average HVAC that is well-maintained and regularly tuned-up will last for years depending on the type of air conditioners you are using. It is because there are some air conditioners that last for decades.

Most air conditioners require maintenance and regular tune-up because taking it granted or if it is not well-maintained it will lead to the breakdown of the unit within its first few years. And one of the biggest mistakes you will make with your air conditioners is not having it serviced at least once a year. Also, bear in mind that air conditioners installed the wrong way have shortened service lives. Thus if you are not sure of the installation, it is best to call an HVAC contractor to inspect the unit in order to determine potential troubles and hazards.

Plumbing Maintenance Resolves Any Tight Spot of Your Home

Darren Kincaid - Tuesday, September 15, 2020
Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VA

There are lots of common plumbing issues that require immediate solutions. Whatever problems encountered, making a habit of scheduling a simple plumbing maintenance work to catch some of those minor fix-ups before they become major repairs is very important. At the same time, you will avoid costly home repairs and the inconvenience of no running water while doing your daily activities, etc. will be avoided.

Even though you are using your water every day for some varieties of things however there are some issues that you have not noticed like small leaks or corroded pipes and fittings. With just a simple task of conducting a plumbing maintenance inspection is worth the time and cost. In addition, testing the responsiveness of your plumbing and doing a bit of cleaning to keep everything in good shape will put you in daily good condition at all times. It is advisable that you go through the Check-Test-Clean routine every 3 months. There are times when you will tackle a small repair or replacing a drain cover, etc. However, bigger plumbing repair jobs need professional attention. If you are trying to repair some common issues by yourself such as slow drains or leaking toilets will lead to bigger problems later.

It is beneficial if a certified plumber will give you a more in-depth look at your home’s pipes and drains. It is the best way to prevent costly repairs to your home. The inspector is expected to check the water heater, garbage disposal, and every tight spot of your home’s plumbing system. As such in order to avoid bigger problems, an inspection is the basic foundation of any maintenance schedule which will conduct thorough assessments on the pipes, lead testing and filter system inspection.

Common Gas or Electric Hot Water Heater Problems

Darren Kincaid - Friday, August 28, 2020
Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VA

Some point in time, you'll encounter some issues in your gas or electric water heater tanks. Common problems include insufficient or no hot water, rusty or smelly water, strange noises and leakages.

No Hot Water

When water that comes out from your shower is unpleasantly cold, the culprit is likely your water heater. You probably need to check the pilot, thermocouple and gas control valve when you have a gas water heater. If you have an electric unit, check the thermostat and the heating elements. If you think there's something wrong with any of these components, have a professional hot water technician check and fix your unit.

Inadequate Hot Water

When your water heater delivers some hot water but not sufficient to your needs, it is probably the temperature setting or the heating components of your electric heater, any tank deposits or a disconnected dip tube.

Rusty, Smelly Water

Accumulation of bacteria and pipe corrosion likely cause discolored water and rotten egg stench that comes out when you switch on the faucet.

Odd Noises

Accumulation of sediments that settle at the bottom of the tank could cause the tank to overheat, as a result the water boils. This causes the rumbling noise from your water heater. Flushing your water heater will remove the deposits.

Meanwhile, the hissing sound would indicate a tank leak that lets water go down onto the burner.

If your water heater has been idle for a while then recently turned back on, condensation might be happening from the bottom of the tank leaking onto the burner. The hissing noise will diminish once the tank is fully heated.

Water Leak

A faulty T&P relief valve or a plumbing connection leakage, or even the tank itself could be the cause of a leaky water heater. T&P valve and plumbing leaks can be fixed but when the leak is in the water hank, it should be replaced right away.

If you think your water heater is not properly functioning or you encountered the abovementioned issues, contact Central Plumbing and Heating, Inc. Our certified hot water technicians can help you resolve the hot water issue.
