Have your trusted HVAC technician checked your unit for early detection of any latent issues and so it can be repaired right away. Performing heating system inspection and tune-up regularly will help extend the life your unit and prevent costly repairs.

Tips To Keep Your AC System Running At Its Best Performance

Your air conditioner works double-time during summer. To ensure that it will continue to perform well throughout the hot season, take the following AC system failure preventative tips:

  1. Schedule an annual tune-up. Have your AC unit checked by your trusted HVAC technician yearly. They can detect latent issues in the components and address them early. This will prevent further deterioration of the unit and the costly repairs that go along with it.
  2. Change the filters regularly. Good indoor air quality can be maintained when your AC's air filters are constantly clean. This also improves the efficiency of your unit, When dust and dirt accumulate in the filter, cold air is impeded to flow properly throughout the home. Your AC unit tends to overwork and this decreases the life span of your equipment.
  3. Clear the area surrounding the outdoor unit. The condenser of your outdoor AC needs room to breathe so as to run properly. Clear the surrounding area of any object. This will also make your outdoor unit accessible for you and your technician.
  4. Address any AC issues right away. Minor issues can get worsen over time. In order to avoid expensive repairs and untimely replacement, have your HVAC expert checked your unit regularly.

Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Furnace System Performing at Its Best

This blog post is offered as a public service to remind all of you that your HVAC system needs regular and recurring maintenance to prolong the life and the performance of your systems. We know for a fact that HVAC systems are the most neglected of the homeowner’s major support systems. We hope that you wisely turn to the professionals like us here at Central Plumbing and Heating to guarantee that you secure proper maintenance and maximize the lifespan of your systems. But if you choose to go it alone, the following are furnace maintenance tips that will help you maximize the performance of your heating system throughout winter.

1. Hire a professional tune-up - Again, always your best choice. Schedule a professional tune-up bi-annually. Certified technicians will check the unit for any operational issues and will carry out the upkeep procedure such as cleaning in order to prevent it from malfunctioning in the future, improve its efficiency and ensure that the system is operating safely.

2. Clean the Filters Regularly - A dirty filter is a usual cause of issues and efficiency problems.

The filter must be checked, cleaned or changed monthly.

3. Test the CO detectors - CO detector serves as a warning device that detects a carbon monoxide leak which can be life-threatening. CO detectors must be tested to ensure they are working properly. Also, make sure that the batteries are new during the heating season.

4. Let air registers breathe - The furnace may find it difficult to heat your home evenly when any of the air registers are blocked off. Make sure they are open and remove any obstructions.

5. Inspect the pilot light in older furnaces - Make sure an older furnace with a pilot light is burning bright blue. In case you notice a different color, it indicates inefficient burning and you may need to contact your trusted HVAC technician to check the issue.

6. Outdoor exhaust pipes must be blocked - Gas furnaces that are highly efficient have exhaust pipes that lead outside the home and close the ground. In order to ensure it operates safely and efficiently, make sure pipes are not blocked.

7. Keep the area around the system clear - Clear the area around the furnace so it is easy to access during inspection, maintenance or repairs.

Prepare Your Heat Pump Before Winter Arrives

As the dog days gradually wrapping up and temperatures going down, you know you'll feel the chill soon. Don't wait for winter to take over before you start checking your heat pump's condition. Now is the perfect time to perform preventative measures that will ensure your heat pump to operate at maximum potential during the cold days.

Remove Unnecessary Items Around the Heat Pump

Clear this area from items like yard tools, leaves and other debris that may cause potential airflow problems. Move them away to allow maximum air flow and for it to run efficiently.

Filter Change

A dirty air filter can cause air flow obstruction through the HVAC system. This will cause the equipment to overwork and use up more energy. As a result, you will be charged more on your utility bill. Air filters are recommended to be cleaned every 1-6 months depending on the type of the filter and the amount of accumulated dirt.

Proper Use of Thermostat Settings

The thermostat has 3 settings namely: heat, cold and emergency heat. Always remember to turn your thermostat to heat mode and not the emergency heat mode, the first time you use the heat pump in fall. Emergency heat mode sources its heat from the furnace and is only intended when the heat pump is not working properly or iced up. Using the emergency heat mode will cost you more.

Schedule Annual Maintenance Earlier

Have a HVAC technician check your unit. Make sure to schedule its annual maintenance before the temperature drops. You will likely have a hard time booking an appointment if you wait until winter as it is one of the busiest time of the year for the HVAC industry. The annual maintenance will help your heat pump to perform more efficiently as it prevents malfunctions related to dirt buildup. This will also help extend the life span of your unit.

If you are looking for an HVAC expert to check you heat pump, contact Central Plumbing and Heating.

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.
