22 Aug Preventative Maintenance Is Key To Health Of HVAC System
The average temperature in Garner, NC and the rest of central North Carolina in August is near ninety degrees. The weather starts to cool down in late September before winter temperatures becomes the norm in December and January. Right now, our HVAC customers are constantly running their air conditioners to keep cool, but in just a couple of months, they will begin to use their heaters to stay warm. Biggs HVAC recommends to all of the residents of North Carolina that they have their HVAC units looked at before the summer season ends.
At this point in the year, so much can go wrong with your HVAC unit that can cause the need for an AC repair. Our knowledgeable and experienced technicians at Biggs HVAC will be conducting AC repairs for weeks to come. Sometimes the problem is as simple as a blown fuse or a disruption in power to the HVAC unit. However, sometimes the AC repair will happen because of a leaky coil or a mechanical system failure that causes a detrimental domino effect on the whole HVAC system. The same can be said for the fall and winter when ac repairs turn into heating repairs.
We cannot stress it enough. The best way to prevent catastrophic damage to your HVAC unit is to have an HVAC professional inspect the unit before the heat of summer sets in and the cold of winter arrives. When an HVAC technician from Biggs HVAC comes to look at your HVAC system, you can expect them to perform checks on parts of your HVAC unit that you will not be that familiar with. They will check for electrical connections that may be loose. They will check on the life of your system’s motor. If there are moving parts that need to be lubricated, they will see that when they inspect the system. Our technicians will inspect the condensate drain. Unless your system has a sensor that shuts the system off if the drain pan becomes too full, you run the risk of your home being flooded if it overflows. They will perform a check on the operating system controls. They will ensure that there is proper airflow happening, and clean the condenser and evaporator coils. They will inspect the thermostat to make sure it is working properly.
