Most people understand the importance of regular maintenance for their cars. It is a big investment and they want to make sure the car runs well for many years. But these same people will buy a house and ignore everything in it. Regular maintenance can keep all of a home’s systems running smoothly, especially the heating and air conditioner. By partnering with an HVAC contractor in Sunrise homeowners can not only keep their system running smooth, they may save a little money over time.

Check the Air Conditioner

The air conditioner will have four main components to be inspected: the refrigerant, condenser, compressor, and evaporator. The refrigerant is the lifeblood of the air conditioner, channeling the heat from the inside to the out. The technician at Best AC Services Pro will measure the pressure levels of the refrigerant to ensure there is enough in the system. The condenser and evaporator will both have a fan that blows across a series of coils. With all the air blowing over the coils, they can become dirty and less effective. Cleaning them can be delicate work because they are thin and fragile. Oftentimes, the technician will use a blast of air to stir the dust up and then vacuum it out of the air. They will also check to ensure each fan is operating smoothly with good electrical connections and no bent or damaged fan blades. The compressor is the only part of the refrigerant loop that has moving parts that should be inspected. It should be oiled to make sure the parts move smoothly and without difficulty.

Check the Furnace

The majority of furnaces use a heating element over which air is circulated. If it is an electric system, electricity is cycled through the element, heating it up just like with a portable heater. Over time, the heating element and the connecting wires can break down and need to be replaced. If the system uses a flame to heat the air, there are more areas to be inspected. First, the fuel source and burners should be inspected to ensure proper flow of the fuel and to make sure the burners are not clogged and all flames are igniting. Technicians will also inspect the fuel lines, looking for any cracks or potential wear and tear. The igniter will also be checked to make sure it is lighting correctly. As a flame burns, it gives off carbon monoxide, which can be deadly. The technician at Best AC Services Pro will inspect the exhaust vent to ensure it is free of obstructions and carrying the carbon monoxide out of the house.

Check the Shared Components

There are several components that are shared by both the heater and air conditioner, most notably the fan. This part circulates the household air through the system to make the living areas comfortable. Like the A/C fans, the technician will look at the electrical connections and the fan blades. The thermostat will also be checked to make sure it is reading the temperature correctly while communicating effectively with both sides of the system. Along with that, the technician will inspect all the electrical wiring and connections to make sure they are good.
