How To Ensure A Heat Pump's Maximum Performance

Your heat pump is an integral component of your heating system. It makes perfect fiscal sense to employ a periodic maintenance plan to ensure the system works optimally. We specialize in providing our clients with periodic maintenance services for their heat pumps. But if you are willing and able to self-help your heat pump maintenance, here are the steps for you to take

  • Air filters must be checked on a monthly basis. It should be thoroughly clean and replaced.
  • Outdoor units must be clear from debris, snow, and ice in the top, sides, bottom and around it.
  • Outdoor coils must be kept clean. Use a degreaser and a hose to remove the dirt between the coils. Make sure to turn off the unit when you do this.
  • To ensure proper airflow and servicing, shrubs must be pruned at least 18 inches from around the unit.
  • Indoor condensate pan and must be flushed and drained in Spring prior to using an AC. This is very important especially when the unit is above or in finished living space. This should be done by a certified HVAC technician.
  • Some units require fan motors to be oiled yearly.
  • Your heat pump must be checked by a professional HVAC technician at least annually.

Some these steps require you to know what you are doing. Coils are sensitive and you can easily damage them if you are not careful. Of course we recommend that you leave this to a professional. When you need trusted certified HVAC technicians in Chesapeake to perform heat pump inspection and repair, contact Central Plumbing and Heating, Inc.

Why AC Cleaning Must Be Done Regularly

An air conditioner removes heat from a living space and releases it outside through refrigerant cycle between an indoor and an outdoor unit. The evaporator coil and condenser coil are the two most significant component involved in this process.

When air blows to the evaporator coils, heat is moved from the air in the living space to the refrigerant within the coils and taken outside. On the other hand, when air blows through the condenser coils, heat is moved from the refrigerant within the coils to the air outside.

Therefore, when you have dirt building up on either of the coils, it causes disruption to the heat-transfer process. This implies AC's refrigerant needs to work hard to absorb heat from your living space and release heat outside your home. Since inadequate heat is removed, the environment will be less cool and comfortable. Worse, it will increase the system's energy consumption. Aside from that, when dirt accumulates in the coils, it will develop airflow problems overtime. Your AC system will be susceptible to breakdowns when HVAC routine cleaning and maintenance is not performed.

Have a certified HVAC technician inspect, clean and maintain your air conditioner unit regularly. Through regular cleaning and maintenance, it can extend the life of your AC system as it helps reduce your energy cost. Contact Central Plumbing and Heating Inc. today!

Damaged HVAC Duct Calls For Immediate Action

A damaged HVAC duct will significantly heighten your energy consumption as the air conditioning system losses its efficiency. Conditioned air must go directly from the system to the living room. When you have a broken duct the conditioned air escapes and your AC unit must overwork. If you're experiencing unexpectedly high energy bills and you suspect something is wrong with your system, look for a trusted AC servicing as soon as possible.

There are various types of HVAC ducts. It often depends on the local building code on what material was used, what installation method and its location. HVAC duct material can be galvanized sheet metal system, fiberglass duct board, flex duct, or spider system. A certified HVAC technician can easily determine what type of duct you have installed in your home. They can readily detect and repair issues on your HVAC system as well.

If you are looking for an HVAC expert near Chesapeake, VA, contact Central Plumbing and Heating, Inc. Our technicians are trained to evaluate, repair, and replace your existing duct work in order for you to get the absolute most out of your energy dollar.
