HVAC Efficiency and Maintenance – The Perfect Combination
Thanks to our seemingly endless summer, El Pasoans really work to get the most out of their HVAC system. Both commercial and residential HVACs get a workout making sure your home and business stay nice and comfortable all season long. That is why it is essential that you keep up with your system’s maintenance in order to keep it running efficiently at optimal levels. The last thing you need as summer comes to a close is a unit that is sputtering or letting out death rattles. You need to ensure the system is ready to keep your warm this winter, or, if you are dealing with a swamp cooler, that you don’t need to replace the whole system next year. That is where the experts from Scott Heating and Cooling can come to the rescue!
Why Does My HVAC Unit Need Maintenance?
We often don’t really think about the temperature systems that keep us comfortable all year long unless there is something wrong or the season calls for a change. Sure, as a homeowner you remember to change the filters (usually not as often as we should), but other than that, your HVAC is usually taken for granted. That is not a good way to go through life because that is how silent damages turn into expensive repairs. Maintenance for your HVAC comes with many benefits, including catching problems before they get big. Here are a few examples:
Old Fan Belts
Fan belts do not last the lifespan of an HVAC unit. They wear down and tear, which can lead to your HVAC unit literally just…stopping. Imagine your temperature control system just stopping in these last hot summer days? El Paso weather doesn’t really follow the rest of the country, which means our summers last longer, get hotter, and are all around uncomfortable until mid October. Regular maintenance checks can catch problems before they arise, such as old fan belts that are ready to pop.
Weird Noises are Never Normal
Sometimes, we hear things from our vents. At first we think it’s nothing. Then we start wondering if we’re going to need that little lady from Poltergeist to visit our home or business. More often than not, it is usually a sign that something is starting to break in our HVAC system and not ghostly hijinks. When you start hearing things pop and whir, don’t blame Casper. Call for a maintenance HVAC check right away to avoid an expensive problem. If they don’t find anything, you may want to revisit that Casper scenario.
If you have a swamp cooler, there is something else that can be wrong. Swamp coolers depend on water drenching absorbent pads as air blows through them to be cooled. That cold air is what keeps your home bearable all summer. As the summer goes on, you may start to notice the air coming from the vents is not as cool as it was at the beginning of the summer. This is because calcium builds up on those pads from the water that is constantly drenching them. Calcium buildup prevents your swamp cooler from functioning efficiently, which means your energy bills will get higher as you get more and more uncomfortable. A simple maintenance check can make sure this is addressed and that your air stays cool.
