Talking About Duct Maintenance and Repairs

Hello, my name is Edward McLaughlin. I am going to use my site to talk about duct cleaning and repair. The ducts running through your home send hot or cold air to each room in an effort to control temperatures. The temperature the system strives to achieve is set at the thermostat. Without cleaning and repairing the ducts, the air will fail to flow to the proper location, keeping temperatures at improper levels. I will talk about the different tools and techniques used by HVAC contractors to maintain and fix the ducts. Please feel free to use the information on my site to keep your ductwork in perfect shape. Thanks for visiting.

Dealing With Air Conditioning System Problems In Your Home Or Office

While there can be some differences between residential and commercial air conditioning systems, their issues are often very similar. AC repair in both situations may come down to service and maintenance issues, and while you will need an AC repair service that is comfortable working on your system, repairs are usually not complex in either case. 

Failure To Run

One of the most common issues with any air conditioning system is failing to start and run when it is first turned on for the season. The AC repair service will often need to come and inspect the system to determine why it is not responding to the thermostat when it is set to cool and test the components inside the system to see where the failure is. 

The controller inside the AC unit, the compressor motor, or the thermostat can all be faulty in these situations. The only way to determine the issue involves testing the system to find the fault and replacing the parts that are not working. Often the tests are simple electrical tests that the AC repair technician can handle quickly so the system is up and running. 

The earlier you test your air conditioning system, the more likely you will get fast service and repairs. Once the temperatures start going up, the AC repair service may get busy, and the time it takes to get to your repairs can be significantly longer.

Airflow Issues

Another common problem with underperforming residential and commercial air conditioning systems involves a lack of airflow through the system. The air filters in the AC system must allow enough air to flow through the system or the air conditioning may shut down.

When the AC repair service is evaluating the system, they will check the air filters on the intake side of the system and the filters inside the building to ensure they are clean and the air is circulating properly. The return air filters can also become a problem if they are not maintained and create a situation where the system does not detect return air, so it shuts down until it is checked. 

Because of the way the air conditioning system is designed, air movement throughout the entire system is critical, so maintaining your filters, cleaning the vents, and serving the unit to keep dirt, dust, and other debris out of the system is critical. Most AC repair services can service the system yearly for you, and you can change the filters throughout the cooling season yourself to ensure they are clean and in good condition.
