HVAC Climate Control – Essential Maintenance Tips

Essential Maintenance

Cutting-edge technology is responsible for developments in Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, which are very energy efficient, yet, like most advanced systems, HVAC does require regular maintenance, which we outline below.

  • Inspect thermostat calibration and setting – An inaccurate (or faulty) thermostat leads to using excess energy and for a multi room air conditioner, there should be a thermostat in each room. If you are unable to carry out such an inspection, a local HVAC engineer would be happy to do an annual inspection and list the tasks carried out.
  • Clean evaporator and condenser coils – These are essential components that do require regular cleaning; refer to the product documentation to locate both coils. Fujitsu is one of the most popular brands on the market and you can check online for product reviews to find out which performs the best.
  • Clean condensation drain – This component is typically removable, which makes it easy to clean.
  • Check refrigerant coolant – If a top-up is required, your local HVAC engineer is more than capable of this.
  • Check all electrical connections and tighten as required – This is a standard aspect of HVAC maintenance, which also looks for corrosion and other issues. Click here to find out when it is time to replace your roof,
  • Inspect heat exchanger – This is a critical component that is usually made from stainless steel; the engineer takes a close look and if there are issues, he might recommend a replacement.
  • Lubricate moving parts – Much like any other workable system, moving parts needs lubrication and this is another job that the HVAC engineer does as a matter of course.
  • Adjust blower components – Fan blades should be cleaned, as this promotes airflow and the system is monitored while in operation.

The importance of regular maintenance

HVAC systems are designed to perform at optimum levels and this can only happen if the system is serviced at regular intervals; if you do not know very much about the inner workings of your climate control system, we advise you to contact a local HVAC service engineer. There should be a small booklet in which the service engineer records the work done, which is ideal for a new owner, should you ever decide to sell up and move on.

Pre-summer maintenance

Of course, your a/c works overtime in the hot summer months and the best time to service the system is in the spring months of October and November. This is the busiest time of the year for a service engineer, so you should book a service as early as you can.

Replacing an old a/c system

If the a/c in your home has seen better days, why not consider replacing it with a state-of-the-art HVAC system? This will save a lot of energy to the point where it might just pay for itself. Noone likes to spend more than they need to for energy, which is why you need an efficient HVAC system to control the interior temperature.
