Most homes today have heating, ventilation and air conditioning or HVAC systems to keep their home at a comfortable temperature all year long. However, if the system is not properly maintained, most units quickly start to develop issues and they can become quite costly to operate. To help prevent this situation from occurring it is important that regular maintenance be performed on the unit by professional Ocean View, DE HVAC Contractors.
When a professional comes to perform maintenance on the HVAC system in a home they will spend some time in cleaning the various components on the system. This generally will include the compressor, condenser, evaporator blower and burners. Cleaning the system is very important in making sure that the system is operating effectively and efficiently. If a system is too dirty, it can become clog and have other issues. This can cause the unit to need additional power to work. This can put a strain on the system, which can shorten the life of various parts on the unit and the system in general. In addition, using extra power can increase utility costs dramatically.
With the unit clean, the technician will be able to perform inspections on the various parts that make up the system. They can check the burner to ensure that when the flames ignite on the system they are blue and non-flickering. The motor on the blower can be checked to ensure the wiring and connections to the unit are in good working order and show no signs of wear or tear. The fan on the blower and the belt will be inspected. If there are signs of damage the units can be replaced as needed.
Most technicians will also spend time calibrating the thermostat to ensure it is measuring the temperature in the home correctly. The condenser and compressor units outside will be thoroughly inspected for signs of damage. The technician will also spend time checking the level on the Freon in the unit and will recharge the system if required. Since a system that needs a recharge of Freon can often indicate a problem with leaks in the system, the technician will spend time looking for such leaks and repair them when they are found. Other tubes and hoses will also be inspected for leaks or other problems and will be replaced as required. Finally, the air filter will also be replaced.
