5 Things to get your Air Conditioning ready for summer
Proactive maintenance plans will help extend the life of the equipment as well as possibly catch some issues before they arise and leave you stranded without cooling at a time of need. Maintenance plans will not catch all issues however keeping the air conditioner clean will assist in not having breakdowns and keep it operating as efficiently as the manufacturer intended.
The most common AC issue we find are a dirty indoor filter, a dirty outdoor coil, the thermostat is programmed and at times of high demand can not cool fast enough, and the most common is a failed capacitor.
All AC models have benefits as well as down sides. Our preferred AC brand is Payne which is part of United Technologies. The best brands are dependent on the service the contractors get from the distributors in the area, due to part availability and service. We have a great relationship with our vendor to assure we can give the service and satisfaction we strive for.
People should assure that the AC system is not undersized or oversized for the home. All duct systems are designed for a certain size system and will most of the time not operate properly if an improper wiring system is installed.
The best feature of current HVAC systems are the efficiency capabilities that are available, and the indoor motors that are designed to run 24/7 to assist in keeping a balanced and comfortable home. A great feature of modern HVAC systems is the Controls/Thermostat with Wifi capabilities to control the thermostat from a phone, tablet, or computer, as well as movement learning, and wireless room sensors. The HVAC system technology is changing at such a rapid pace and equipment is getting more and more efficient. The outdoor units are also getting quieter and are gaining the capability to store fault codes, which can help a technician if there are intermittent issues.
The furnace and the AC do not have to be replaced together, however you can capitalize on rebate incentives as well as save some money in the long run typically due to it being slightly less labor to do both systems at the same time.
If you have an HRV or ERV they are set to specific CFM rates based on the code when the house was built.
Condensation and moisture typically appear on windows in the winter since the air outside cant hold as much moisture as the air inside the home. If it's colder outside, that means the humidity in the home needs to be lower and some humidifiers operate on a curve based on outdoor temperature automatically adjusting the requested humidity level. If you have condensation on the windows and you have a humidifier, it is recommended to turn the level down to prevent this. If you do not have a humidifier and have this issue the home needs to cycle more outdoor air into the home to assist in dehumidifying the air. It is not recommended to use stand alone humidifiers if you have a forced air system due to the humidifier putting a very fine dust in the air which can cause the furnace filter to plug up faster.
The best thing to keep an AC running efficiently and reliably is to keep the outdoor coil clean. If the coil is dirty it causes the AC to work harder to get the heat out of the unit, leading to longer run times as well as more wear and tear on the unit. The outdoor coil can be cleaned with a garden hose spraying the coil in the downward pattern similar to rinsing soap off a cleaned car.
