HVAC Tune Ups Deliver Health and Economic Efficiency

Darren Kincaid - Thursday, February 28, 2019
Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VA

As climate shifts to warmer weather, a regular and recurring household maintenance task is to prioritize indoor air quality. Issues including molds, bacteria, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds tend to increase during the warming months. These increases your family's risk to respiratory diseases. To improve indoor air quality, you must provide proper ventilation and clean source of air at your home.

This is the best time to schedule your spring AC tune-up. It is important that a certified technician perform your AC servicing.

You should be advised that dirty A/C filters can cause home air ducts to become dirty and clogged. More importantly, this promotes a favorable environment for molds and spores to propagate within the ductwork. Unwanted airborne particles like dust, pollen and pet hair can trap and accumulate in your filter. When not cleaned regularly, build-up of allergens such as fungi, pollen and bacteria in the air and may trigger respiratory ailments. Air conditioning filters must be cleaned and/or replaced for both health and system efficiency reasons. Dirty filters cause your HVAC equipment to work harder and use up to five percent more energy.

If you need certified technicians in Chesapeake, VA to perform A/C tune up and maintenance services, contact Central Plumbing and Heating.

Like any other mechanical equipment, the furnace requires annual maintenance and servicing. This is because dirt, dust, wear, tear, and improper upkeep are the common issues that cause furnaces to fail and breakdown. Through professional furnace maintenance, latent and developing issues can be detected and repaired early before they get worse.

Skipping proper furnace maintenance may lead to the system working harder than normal. For this reason, the unit will wear out faster and increase the cost of repairs. Additionally, furnace replacement will cost you thousands of dollars. If you want the optimal performance from your heating equipment, the system must be properly maintained regularly. This can even lower your energy consumption charges up to 35 percent.

Service maintenance includes cleaning and inspection of components, checking duct work for leaks, vent inspection, and thermostat evaluation. Furnace service and maintenance plans ensure the furnace system will run properly season after season. At the same time, you can maintain the comfort and air quality at your home.

Air Conditioning System Repairs Are Needed When Refrigerant Levels are Low

Darren Kincaid - Thursday, July 26, 2018

Air-conditioners are intended to cool down your home during warm weather. But what happens when it suddenly stops blowing cooled air when it is supposed to? Air conditioners are highly dependent on refrigerant in order to function properly. When the refrigerant gas is below the recommended level, this can be an indicator of refrigerant leakage and requires HVAC expert service for a thorough inspection and repairs.

When refrigerant gas leaks, you will notice that the cooling system blows out more tepid air. If the gas totally runs out, it will no longer produce cool air at all. The system will send out room temperature air because there is no refrigerant to absorb the heat in the cooling chamber. Other things you may notice in a cooling unit with refrigerant leaks include:

  • Evaporator coils that get too cold. Ice can form in the coil itself and to its surrounding components
  • Leaks that produce oily residue
  • A sudden spike in your utility bill since your cooling system will work harder to meet the ideal temperature

If you notice those following signs, contact Central Plumbing and Heating as soon as possible to prevent further damage of your cooling system.

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

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, June 06, 2018

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.

Ways to Save Energy Expenditure with Your Cooling System this Summer

Your energy bill very often spikes during the summer. This is often inevitable with the continuous use of your cooling system to cool your home and make it comfortable. There are ways to keep your energy consumption down while you stay comfortably cool at home.

A regular air conditioning tune-up and ensuring that the air filter is clean can help you save on your energy consumption. Air conditioners tend to work harder when filters are clogged with dust and dirt. Have HVAC service maintenance in Chesapeake, VA performed on a regular basis, this includes a regular cleaning. Moreover, whenever you turn on your air conditioning unit make sure to close all doors and windows to prevent air from escaping.

Applying weatherstripping to seal doors and windows prevents air leakage. Furthermore, it is recommended to set the thermostat at 78 degrees which will help you save about 8% on your cooling costs. Make use of portable fans to help circulate air around the house. These appliances have lower energy consumption because they have lower wattage than your central AC.

Performing the tips above can reduce your energy expenditure and can keep your unit working at maximum efficiency. Contact Central Plumbing and Heating for proper tune-up of your air-conditioning unit.
