Reliable Air Conditioner Maintenance in Circleville, OH

Why is AC Maintenance Important?

The following are a few of the benefits of air conditioner maintenance, which indicates why all HVAC professionals stress the necessity of regular seasonal maintenance on residential air conditioning equipment:

Enhancing Energy Efficiency

Our seasonal maintenance service includes the cleaning and inspection of the AC system’s fan blades, motor, cooling coils, and of other related equipment and essential components that have a direct effect on the unit’s level of efficiency and performance. With the coils and some of these other parts getting regular service, the system is able to provide cooler temperatures easier, which reduces overall energy consumption — even as the temperatures outside continue to rise.

Comfort Optimization

We call them comfort systems for a reason! Failing to have an a/c serviced leads to the decline of comfort levels. The good news is that our home cooling heroes closely scrutinize and test all the various parts of an A/C system. Doing so, they’re able to locate any abnormalities or things that are of concern and might need to be addressed before the cooling season is in full swing. The results in a fine-tuning, an enhancement of the home cooling system that enables the A/C to perform at its best — providing the customer with an optimized level of comfort from Central Ohio’s muggy summer heat.

Avoiding Emergency Problems

Seasonal maintenance on an HVAC system is sometimes compared to getting a checkup with a dentist or doctor, or more so like having an automobile’s oil changed, or getting a tune-up and servicing. This is because A/C maintenance enables one of our state-certified HVAC technicians to optimize the home cooling equipment, making sure it’s in the best possible condition prior to going into home cooling season full swing. Old, faulty or defective parts are identified and can be replaced before they cause damage to other equipment and inhibit the unit’s otherwise smooth and efficient operation. Preventative measures like these save homeowners a lot of discomfort and stress in addition to money in the long run.

Lengthen Equipment Lifespan

Seasonal maintenance enables an air conditioner to sustain optimal efficiency while amplifying its lifespan when it’s performed regularly by an NATE-certified technician that’s honest and cares. When you calculate the cost of installing a new A/C, you’ll see how and why maintenance has such massive long-term payoffs.

Better Indoor Air Quality

Our friendly cooling experts here at Circleville Heating & Cooling have tons of experience working on all types of AC units and their skill level is second to none. During a routine service call for maintenance, they clean out particles that collect within the AC system and get trapped there — things like pet dander, dust, dirt and grime. If not addressed, this stuff can eventually travel into a homeowner’s ductwork where it builds up where it can get circulated back into the home in the air you, your loved ones and guests breathe.

Keeping Warranty Active

If your home cooling equipment is still under warranty and you neglect to have your A/C serviced for even a single year, that warranty becomes a worthless piece of paper. This is because the manufacturers of air conditioning equipment also recognize the importance of maintenance performed by an NATE-certified professional. They mandate it be performed every year in order to keep warranties valid. Otherwise, if something happens, if a part fails or becomes defective and the system wasn’t properly serviced, the homeowner is out of luck. Why risk it?

Step-by-Step Guide: How to Replace Your A/C Filter

In many homes, the air conditioner’s air filter is located near the thermostat. So, to start this process, the first step is to find the filter. Go to your thermostat, and look for a vent. If you’re unable to locate a return vent with the filter located nearby, look at the A/C unit. Some models have the air filter closer to the system, instead of at the return air grille. When you find the air filter, the following steps explain the rest:

  1. Loosen the fasteners holding the front of the grille to the vent, and remove the cover gently. Then, place to the side. The air filter should be directly behind this cover.
  2. Reach in and pull it out, carefully.
  3. Then, set the air filter off to the side, and assess the condition it’s in. A dirty or bad air filter is usually a dingy, greyish-brown color. If it still looks whitish and fairly new, there might be some life left in it.
  4. If the filter is dirty, on the other hand, you’ll want to get a new air filter.
  5. Identify the arrow pattern on the edge of the filter. The direction of the arrows is important to ensure proper airflow. The arrows should not point outward or towards you. If they do, airflow will be restricted.
  6. After locating these arrows, position them so they’re facing the wall.
  7. Then, put the filter back into the return duct opening. You want to gently ease in the bottom portion of the filter first, and then the top.
  8. Double check to confirm the arrows are pointing toward the air duct.
  9. Give the filter a gentle pat to ensure that it snugly fits into the opening.
  10. Then, place the cover back on.
  11. Finally, tighten the fasteners.
