At Carbone Plumbing and heating, we want to make sure you have
the best knowledge and your air conditioning equipment can receive the best care
For air conditioning equipment it is suggested that you
would have a minimum of two visits per year: once to evaluate your heating
equipment and once for your cooling equipment. It may be necessary to have more
than two visits based on how your equipment is used, or if your equipment is in
a particularly “dirty” environment.
Some preventive care that can be done is to have us check
all of your electrical connections, measuring voltage and current. Faulty
electrical connections can cause overload and equipment burn-out, making the
operation of your system unsafe.
A way we can help reduce wear and create a more energy efficient
system is to lubricate all moving parts so friction is reduced.
If a drain is plugged it can result in water damage which
can create mold and poor air quality so it is important to have the condensate
drain inspected and cleared.
One of the most important checks you can have done is the
Diagnostic Start and Test, it will help reveal any irregularities in the system
before something occurs.
Some other simple things you can do to help with energy efficiency
and air quality is to check your thermostat settings and inspect, clean, or
change air filters.
For cooling equipment you should always make sure to have a clean
evaporator and condenser air conditioning coils, as well as having your
refrigerant levels checked and your blower components cleaned/adjusted.
For heating equipment it is important to check and clean all
gas or oil connections, gas pressure, burner combustion and heat exchanger. In addition
to inspecting and changing the components necessary, you should also have your
oil filter assembly changed and leaks on boilers checked.
All of these things will increase your energy efficiency and keep your system running better for longer.
