HAVE YOU HAD YOUR AIR CONDITIONER TUNED UP YET?

technician-with-condenserWhile our winter season is decidedly mild when compared to that of other areas in the country, that doesn’t mean that Texans don’t get excited for the chillier weather of the year to end. That being said, it’s a lot more difficult to enjoy summer’s heat if you don’t have a great air conditioner that is in great working order waiting for you. This is exactly why it is so important to ensure that your AC is properly tuned up prior to the arrival of the cooling season.

Because we’re not quite out of winter’s chilly grasp just yet, you may not be thinking about your air conditioner in Houston, TX too much. Trust us when we tell you that it is better to get out ahead of your service needs, though. Waiting too long to schedule maintenance may lead to the temptation of skipping right over it when the summer heat hits sooner than expected.

How Does Maintenance Benefit Me?

If you have read this blog or any other home services blog/publication in the past, then you have certainly been told that routine AC maintenance is a must previously. Simply put, there is just no better way in which to guarantee that you get the best performance that your air conditioner has to offer. We’re happy to provide a few more details, of course.

  • Reliability – we obviously run our air conditioners pretty hard in this part of the country. If you are hoping for your AC to be there for you when you need it most, then you need to schedule annual air conditioning maintenance. Otherwise, you run the risk of repair needs during the hottest time of the season.
  • Efficiency – we use our air conditioners way too much over the course of our long, hot cooling season to risk inefficiency. The longer that you force your air conditioner to run without a tune-up, the more likely you are to see a noticeable decline in energy efficiency.
  • Longevity – routine maintenance gives your technician the chance to deal with the past season’s wear and tear, as well as to discover, diagnose, and preemptively address any developing problems. Failure to schedule routine maintenance can result in shortened system lifespan.

AC TIP: COILS MUST BE KEPT CLEAN

Some homeowners assume that the fact that their air conditioner is up and running means that is it is functioning properly. This is not necessarily the case, though. There are many different issues that may impede the operation of your AC, even if it is cooling your home. One such issue is a dirty evaporator coil.

vDuring routine air conditioning maintenance, you technician will clean your coil for you. However, that does not guarantee that one cleaning per year is going to keep the coil in peak operating condition. If you have any issues with your AC in Houston, TX, as you’ll see below, it could be a dirty evaporator coil to blame.

WHY IS A DIRTY COIL SUCH A BIG DEAL?

In order to understand why a dirty evaporator coil is so detrimental to the operation of your air conditioning system, you must first understand precisely what it is that your evaporator coil does. This coil is located in the indoor unit of your air conditioning system, and it facilitates the absorption of heat from the air in your. When hot air passes over the coil, the cool, low-pressure refrigerant therein absorbs heat from that air. The system then redistributes the cooled air throughout your home, and the warm refrigerant goes out to the condenser coil to shed this heat. The process is repeated until the desired temperature is attained in your home.

Now, if the evaporator coil is caked with dirt and dust, it is going to struggle to remove heat from the air in your home successfully. This can leave you living less comfortably, and even paying more money to do so. That’s because your air conditioner is going to have to work harder than it should have to in order to cool your home, using energy inefficiently in the process.

It is even possible for the coil to become so cold that the condensation on it ices up. This further insulates the coil, and further impedes the cooling process. If your evaporator coil needs to be cleaned in order to help your AC function at peak performance and efficiency levels, our technicians will do the job right.

Always schedule your air conditioning services with Expert Air Cooling And Heating.

DIRTY AIR FILTERS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS PROBLEMS

You have no doubt heard it declared that routine air conditioning maintenance is an absolute necessity if you hope to get the best performance that your home cooling system has to offer. We are certainly not going to argue the accuracy of that point. What we will do, though, is remind you that there is something important to do on your own in between your scheduled HVAC maintenance services.

That is to change your air filter regularly. If the air filter used by your air conditioner in Houston, TX is clogged up due to infrequent changes, you can encounter a number of different problems. Read on to learn more about the issues that may develop. If you have any questions regarding the changing of your air filter, contact the professionals on our staff for the answers that you need.

Reduced Efficiency, Low Indoor Air Quality, Performance Issues

Think about blowing air through a straw. Now think about doing the same thing when the straw is bent or has something jammed inside of it. It’s harder to do then, right? Well, the same principle applies to your air conditioning system and its filter. All of the air that is cooled by your AC passes through this filter before being distributed throughout your home. If the filter is clogged up, your air conditioner is going to have to work harder than it should have to in order to force air through it, and that can result in higher energy costs.

You may also notice that your air quality is suffering. This could be due to the fact that your filter is so clogged that air is moving around it, rather than through it. Eventually, circumventing the filter entirely may be the path of least resistance. When that happens, there is nothing between the pollutants in the air and your living space.

Finally, there is the fact that decreased airflow caused the dirty filter could cause the evaporator coil to ice up. This coils draws heat out of the air. If not able to do so effectively, it may wind up getting too cold, and the condensation on the coil can freeze. This makes it harder for your system to cool your home, and the ice acts as an insulator that only exacerbates the problem.

WHAT IS SHORT CYCLING, AND WHY SHOULD I CARE?

During the hottest time of the year, you need to know that your air conditioner is going to function as reliably as it does effectively. While our winters may not be as extreme as the summers are around here, you need to be able to count on your heater in the same manner. If either of your systems is short cycling, then this is just not the case.

In the following post, we’ll discuss the causes of short cycling and the adverse effects that it can have on your HVAC systems. We’ll focus on air conditioners, given the season, but just keep in mind that your heater may experience the same issue, though the causes may vary. If your systems are short cycling, be sure to schedule service with a member of our staff right away.

What Is Short Cycling?

Okay, you’ve noticed that your air conditioner in Houston, TX is starting up and stopping very frequently. This is what is known as short cycling. For some reason, your system is not completing a full cooling cycle and is shutting down prematurely. Once it has, it has to start back up before long. If you hear your system doing this, pick up the phone and dial our number.

What Causes Short Cycling?

There are a few potential causes of short cycling. You could have a refrigerant leak in your system, leading to the compressor overheating and shutting down. Perhaps your air filter is very dirty, limiting airflow, and causing the same problem. You may also have a faulty run capacitor, or your thermostat may be registering the temperature wrong. Whatever the issue, only a trained professional can determine with certainty what’s gone wrong.

Why Is It a Problem?

When your system is short cycling, in incurs far more wear and tear than it would when operating normally. This can shorten the system’s lifespan and may cause it to require more frequent repairs. Plus, your system uses the most energy when starting up. That means that you’ll likely be paying more money for less comfort if you don’t have the problem resolved ASAP.

Let Expert Air Heating and Cooling service your HVAC systems.
