Do you want to make sure your air conditioning system last for years and your cooling bills stay low? Keep your system serviced and maintained.
Regular maintenance plays an enormous part in indoor air quality. Keeping your air filter changed can reduce dust, dander, and pollen. Anyone in your home with allergies, asthma, or other breathing problems will thank you for it.
Regular service will also help keep your repair costs lower. Have your system serviced at least twice a year and you’ll be able to catch any potential problems early.
We start by checking the filters. It’s one of the simplest, yet most important, parts of AC maintenance. Clogged and dirty filters can cause many problems with the system, including:
Next, we check the air-handler unit and evaporator coils. Most homes built in Clemmons after 1965 have central air, so those are normally inside on top of a forced-air furnace or heat pump. If your home has radiant heat, the air-handler is probably in the attic.
We take care of several things when we service the indoor part of your cooling system.
The outdoor unit of your AC system has a large fan, motor, and condenser coils. During a service or maintenance appointment, we inspect all of those systems and make sure they’re working well. Debris and shrubs shouldn’t be blocking the fan or airflow around the condenser coils.
The outside unit is also where we connect to your system and check coolant levels. Residential air conditioning systems use either Freon (R-22) or Puron (R-410A) as a refrigerant. The EPA has banned production and importation of R-22 as of January 1, 2020, and made the move to the more environmentally friendly and efficient Puron.
The Freon used in older systems has become very expensive. Freon now costs over $50 per pound if you can find it. Most residential AC units require between 5 and 15 pounds of refrigerant. A system designed to run on Freon can’t use Puron. If you have an older system that uses Freon, consider converting it to Puron. You will need to replace the compressor, condenser, evaporator, and probably the refrigerant tubing. This can be very expensive. You may be better off putting that money towards a new, more efficient system. Contact us and we’ll help you figure out which option makes the most sense for you.
