hvac air conditioning service

The heating, ventilating and air conditioning system also known as hvac is a type of air conditioner and servicing it is important to maintain its high level of operation. Regular HVAC preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance. Pre-season maintenance is also important. It can help to avoid a system failure in severe hot or cold weather when you need it most, and it can also keep your energy bill from getting out of control. Prevention is better than cure and in this case maintenance of your hvac could save you a lot of money and inconvenience in the future. There are a few things you could keep checking to ensure you avoid abrupt system failure. You should schedule maintenance checks in the seasons leading up to summer and winter for a system that heats and cools. If you have a system that only cools you can do the maintenance once a year before winter to ensure that you are warm and comfortable in the season. If you wish to do the furnace maintenance only you should do it once a year before summer.Many dealers provide priority service for their customers who have an annual maintenance or service agreement. Bi-annual preventative maintenance will ensure that your system runs as efficiently as possible.

There are many types of air conditioners, the car air conditioner, the wall air conditioner, the central air conditioner, the portable system and the split system air conditioner. Most air conditioners have the following similar parts, the compressor, the condenser, the evaporator, the expansion valve and the drier or accumulator. These parts are interconnected using pipes and valves. Refrigerant is the fluid which is also highly volatile that transports heat from one component to another. The air conditioner basically starts working when you turn on the AC and the refrigerant goes to the compressor where it is compressed and absorbs heat and changes from liquid to gas. Then it goes to the condenser where it is cooled sometimes in some systems the condenser may be fitted with an electric fan. After being cooled and changing back to liquid the refrigerant moves to the evaporator where it is cooled further and then air is blown across it for it to become cool and this cool air is then blown into your environment. The refrigerant then absorbs the heat from the air blown and it reverts to a gas. The drier removes any impurities on the refrigerant using filters and desiccant to absorb any moisture. The expansion valve controls how cool the air you receive will be. Then the process takes place over and over until the room is cooled. This is also referred to as the refrigerative cycle. Before acquiring a unit you should check how energy efficient it is and for some of the appliances industries they offer free installation of your unit.

At some point the air conditioner may start having problems and you should get it repaired by a certified technician from a quality service company near you. They will first do an initial diagnosis before establishing what the problem is and then make recommendations. If you do regular maintenance then they will only be small repairs to do. However, without maintenance you may find yourself having to replace components of the AC system which are quite costly. Most companies have the components there and will easily replace any parts that need to be repaired. They also offer to retrofit your old refrigerant with the newer environmentally safe refrigerant.
