Air Conditioning Maintenance

If you already have an air conditioning unit in your home or business, then it’s important to make regular maintenance chectkups a priority. Regular cleaning and maintenance can not only help you save money, but can also extend the life of your HVAC unit. In fact, our NATE-certified (North American Technician Excellence) technicians can easily identify any issues while they are still small, so that you can address them quickly before they become larger, more expensive problems. You should schedule regular maintenance checks twice a year — once in the fall and once in the spring. This will help ensure that your HVAC system is running as smoothly as possible and identify any potential issues more quickly.

In between these professional checkups, there are a number of things that you can do to help maintain an efficient cooling system.

Change the Filter

Since a dirty filter can sabotage the efficiency of your air conditioning unit, it’s important to make sure to change it every month. If you have a washable filter, then simply clean it and replace it. Every filter has a minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) that ranges from one to 12. The higher the number, the better the filtration it offers. Keep in mind, however, that better filtration also means more energy will be needed to pull the air through it. So when you’re trying to decide which number to choose, try to find a good balance between air-quality concerns and energy costs, or contact Frontier A/C Heating and Refrigeration for our professional recommendation.

Use a Programmable Thermostat

Unless someone is at home during the day, there’s no reason to blast your air conditioning all day long. While no one wants to come home to an uncomfortably warm house, you also don’t want to pay the bill for keeping it comfortably cool when you’re not home. An easy way to solve this problem is to install a programmable thermostat. If you have a central air conditioning unit, then set it to let the air get warmer while the house is empty and begin cooling shortly before you arrive home. Not only will you be able to enjoy cool temperatures upon arrival, but your wallet will breathe easier from lower energy bills.

If you don’t have a programmable thermostat or you use a wall unit, simply stop in at your local home improvement store to purchase a timer. They’re relatively cheap and will save a lot of money in the long run.

While it’s great to have a brand new A/C system installed at your residence or business, you don’t want to forget to provide regular check-ups for your unit. Over time, it can become bogged down with dirt and other contaminants that can slow down the efficiency of the system, which will increase your energy bill. Be sure to schedule routine maintenance for your air conditioning unit in Mission today!

Keep Your HVAC Unit Running Efficiently

There are some other items that you should consider to help your HVAC unit continue to run as smoothly as possible. While regular checkups and filter changes are important, there are a couple of other areas that can lead to a less-than-efficient unit.

Maintain Insulation Levels

It’s important to regularly check the insulation levels in your attic and crawl spaces. Even if you have recently moved into a brand new home or building, the insulation will slowly settle over time, which means that you are not getting the same protective benefits. From spray foam and batt insulation to rigid-foam and more, there are a number of different products that you can use to keep your ducts insulated. Make sure to talk with one of the technicians at Frontier A/C Heating and Refrigeration about the best solution for your home before attempting to do this on your own.

Assist Compressor and Condenser

If you have a central air conditioning unit, then you can assume that it has an air compressor and condenser that are usually located outside the house and close to the foundation. With this in mind, make sure to check the area regularly to keep it clear of any tall grass, leaves, hanging branches, or overgrown shrubs. Plant growth can quickly and easily get in the way of air flow, causing them to work much harder than they should. One other task that you can perform to help your HVAC unit work more efficiently is to build a screen to shield them from the sun. Direct sunlight will cause your compressor and condenser to work much harder, and can reduce their efficiency by as much as 10 percent! Speak with one of the technicians at Frontier A/C Heating and Refrigeration in Mission for more information.

Use Blinds and Curtains

You can actually extend the life of your air conditioning unit by remembering to keep blinds down and shades drawn during the day. If you’re at work, there’s no reason to let the sunshine in and heat up your house, which will make your a/c unit work more often. Even on a timer, your air conditioner will turn on each time the temperature rises above your preset numbers. To prevent your unit from working more than it has to, resist opening your blinds and curtains when you’re leaving the house.

If you enjoy the sunlight and will be home during the day, you could opt to install sheer curtains over your blinds. This way, you can open the blinds for light, and enjoy the shading benefits the curtains will provide. This arrangement offers the perfect compromise that allows you to get the sunlight you want without making your air conditioning unit work as hard.

Air Conditioning Repairs

One of the benefits that come from regular air conditioning maintenance is the ability to identify any issues that need repairing. In spite of routine maintenance checks and care, there will come a time when you will need to contact the professionals at Frontier A/C Heating and Refrigeration in Mission to perform some repair work on your HVAC unit. There are three common air conditioning repairs that you may need help with:
• Compressor Issues
• Fan Problems
• Refrigerant Leaks

Compressor Issues

The compressor is essentially the heart of your HVAC unit, which means that if it’s not working, you won’t have cool air. The job of the compressor is to circulate the refrigerant that is required for the heat exchange through the coils of both the indoor and outdoor unit. When the summers heat up in Mission, your air conditioning unit and its compressor will be working hard to keep your home comfortably cool. This means that, over time, the compressor will begin to wear down the same way that a motor would. From dirt and dust to grime and debris, there are a number of factors that can negatively impact the performance of your compressor and cause excessive wear
and tear.

Fan Problems

Your HVAC unit actually has two fans — the evaporator fan (blower) and the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located in the outdoor unit and helps to remove the heat from the air conditioner’s system. The blower, which is located in the indoor unit, pushes the cool air into the ductwork in your home. Typically, if you need to schedule repair work due to one of the fans, it will be the result of an issue with one of the, motor problems, or loose or bent blades.

Refrigerant Leaks

While refrigerant leaks may be one of the most common repair issues for air conditioning units, the challenge comes with finding the location of the leak. This is why it’s important to contact one of the professional technicians at Frontier A/C Heating and Refrigeration in Mission. Repairing a refrigerant leak is not something that you should attempt on your own. A leak in the refrigerant lowers the levels of refrigerant in the entire system, which can lead to a variety of other problems. If you suspect an issue with your system’s ability to cool your home, don’t delay in contacting the NATE-certified technicians at Frontier!

No matter what you need help with, our NATE-certified technicians will provide the superior customer service that you deserve. With routinely scheduled maintenance, we can provide early detection for potential problems. Once you’re aware of any issues your A/C unit might have, we can repair them quickly and effectively so that you can avoid larger problems down the road.

Air Conditioning Replacements and Installation

Eventually, no matter how much you care for your air conditioning unit and utilize regular checkups, there will come a time when it needs to be replaced. The cost of purchasing and installing a new HVAC unit can be daunting, but there are several factors that can make it less intimidating, including financing, utility company rebates, and lower energy bills.

Energy Efficiency Rebates

One of the great perks of purchasing a new HVAC system is that there are a variety of energy efficient models on the market. In fact, make sure to contact your utility company to learn about any rebate programs they may have for purchasing one of these models. Often, you will discover that they have great incentives, as they benefit from your purchase as well. The up-front cost for an energy efficient air conditioner may be a little more, but there are great benefits in the long run, including lower energy bills! Not only will your unit come with a programmable timer, which will save both energy and money, but it will also have other features that use less energy. All of this means that you’ll be able to save money on your utility bill, and who wouldn’t love that?
