We feel it is our duty to properly educate our customers on how to get the most out of that investment. Helping you understand how proper air conditioning system maintenance is a major win,win. A win for your checkbook and a win for your peace of mind.
How your central HVAC System Works
To understand why HVAC systems need proper professional maintenance. We first need to understand how they work. In simple terms an HVAC system works similar to a refrigerator, they transfer heat from a home’s interior to the warm outside environment. This is what happens the moment we turn the dial on our thermostats. The evaporator coils remove heat and humidity from the air using refrigerant. A blower circulates air over the evaporator, dispersing the chilled air. Hot coils release the collected heat into the outside air. A pump that moves refrigerant between the evaporator and the condenser to chill the indoor air. A fan blows air over the condenser to dissipate the heat outside and air is delivered through a system of ducts and registers into the home. The process of cooling or heating a home efficiently takes many components working together at a high capacity.
Benefits of Regular HVAC Maintenance
