Your home air-conditioning system will be working hard this summer. AC technicians highly recommend having getting regular HVAC service in Chesapeake, VA so you wont run into any issues when heat peaks. It gets very uncomfortable when your cooling system quits when your need it the most.

Often, homeowners wonder what is involved in an air-conditioning tune-up, and if it is really necessary. Here are the things that should be included when you choose a reputable heating and cooling company:

  1. Comprehensive cleaning of condenser coils to increase the efficiency of your unit.
  2. Evaluation of the refrigerant level to ensure it is operating optimally.
  3. Full thermostat calibration to verify optimum performance.
  4. Electric Component Inspection to ensure safe system operation.
  5. Ductwork check-up for possible energy loss
  6. Verify blower motor performance and make sure blower belt is in top condition.

These standard checks should be done properly to maximize the efficiency and performance of your central cooling system. Contact Central Plumbing and Heating, Inc for thorough HVAC inspection and servicing.

Water Leaking From Air Conditioner Condenser Requires an Inspection and Tune-Up

One common HVAC issue that usually occurs during summer is leaking water outside the air conditioner condenser. There are multiple factors that cause excessive dripping water, and all of them require immediate HVAC check-up and maintenance service.

Dirty air filters are the number one cause of water pooling in the drip pan. When filters are clogged, the airflow is blocked over the evaporator coil causing it to freeze up. When the ice melts, an excessive amount of water overflows from the drain pan. If you have an older unit, most likely your condensate pan is rusty and may have cracks and holes where water can leak. Furthermore, dirt can also block the drain pipes. A professional HVAC technician may need to use a special vacuum to remove the dirt. Improper installation of the drainage pan can also contribute to water leaking issues.

A continuous water drip beneath the air conditioner can accumulate and turn into a puddle of water. This can lead to humidity in the basement, mold, and pests. Contact Central Plumbing and Heating for a thorough inspection and tune up of the central air conditioner if you see pooling water.
