Call the HVAC Contractor and Cool Down!
The air conditioning that keeps your home cool during hot weather needs to be maintained if you want it to continue working when you need it. Therefore, you may need the help of AC services to do the routine maintenance, tune-ups, and minor repairs that will be needed as it wears out from regular use. The following AC services information will help you keep your home cool when you need it:
Problems with your heater can sometimes be hazardous or pose risks to your home and health, so staying on top of maintenance and looking out for warning signs will help you keep it in good shape. Knowing what warning signs to look out for can help you catch problems early before they get worse or pose any serious risks.
Circuit Breaker Keeps Tripping
Running an appliance like a furnace requires a lot of power, so if you notice that the breaker for the circuit your furnace uses keeps tripping, this could indicate a problem that needs fixing before your heater is used again.
The air conditioner (AC) condenser is responsible for getting rid of the heat that the AC extracts from the house. Thus, the AC's cooling efficiency will suffer if the condenser is malfunctioning. Below are some condenser problems that can trigger inefficient cooling.
The condenser has a coil that circulates hot refrigerant to dissipate heat. Damage to the coil can cause the refrigerant to leak. Coil damages, from physical impact or corrosion, are typical causes of refrigerant damages.
With a "typical" home heating and cooling system, one thermostat controls the temperature of the entire home. With a zoned system, however, individual thermostats throughout a home provide additional temperature control. In a two-story home, for example, having one thermostat downstairs and one thermostat upstairs can allow for more consistent heating and cooling year-round. Dampers installed inside a home's existing ductwork allow for more precise airflow--so air is only sent to the areas of the home that need it.
Your air ducts are susceptible to temperature influences from the external environment. Air duct insulation separates the air within the ducts from the air outside them to minimize such effects. However, the separation is only possible if the insulation material is thick enough. Below are some of the factors that determine adequate insulation thickness.
The local weather determines the effect of the external environment on the air inside the ducts.
When we bought our house, we had a home warranty that was good for one year. One of the first things that had to get taken care of was the air conditioner. Before we had the HVAC contractor come out, we made sure filters were changed and other basic maintenance was taken care of. The HVAC contractor that the insurance company sent out replaced the compressor and our AC is working fine now so we're glad that we did it when we did, especially because he found a major mistake in our system. You don't want to wait long when the AC goes out on a hot summer day. This blog is here to make sure you get the help you need.
