HVAC Maintenance and Repair: Tips by Gilbert AZ HVAC Service Center ACH

Gilbert AZ HVAC ServicesEstablishing a simple and doable Gilbert AZ HVAC preventative home maintenance plan ensures that your heating system remains in top shape. Basic heat pump or furnace upkeep demands one to three hours per year in personal effort and routine filter replacements ranging from $40 to $100 in costs.

According to the ten-day forecast from Weather Underground, current Gilbert, AZ nighttime lows ranging between 45°F and 51°F remain in effect. It’s going to get worse and the demand on your home heating system will increase. This means a jump in the cost of staying comfortable on the inside of your home.

But you can reduce the cost for Gilbert AZ HVAC operations and repairs.

The team at American Cooling and Heating recommends a professional inspection at the beginning of spring and at the beginning of fall. Heavy-duty HVAC maintenance and repair involves opening the primary system, inspecting and cleaning the wiring, the mechanisms of the unit and examining the condition of the duct system. It’s usually a bit more than the typical Gilbert homeowner should attempt. But that doesn’t prevent you from practicing basic cooling and heating and preventative home maintenance.

Prolong the life of your Gilbert AZ HVAC system. Apply the following energy efficiency best practices for extended life and better service from your heating and cooling equipment.

Standards for Routine HVAC Maintenance and Repair

Whether heating and cooling with a dual-stage power-efficiency Trane XL20i heat pump or an Amana premium packaged dual-fuel gas and heat pump system, effective preventive home maintenance of your Gilbert AZ HVAC demands certain immediate actions:

  • Buy and install a pleated, high-efficiency air filter
  • Maintain a clear airflow path around your outdoor heat pump or AC system
  • Control the accumulation of grass, leaves or any other loose substances or materials that can hinder the performance of your external units.

Additional energy efficiency best practices include monthly and seasonal maintenance. Upgrading your HVAC filter system to a pleated unit with electrostatic particle management only works if the remains unclogged by pet hair, dust or other obstacles. Inspect the filter monthly. Replace it every ninety days regardless of appearance. Additional seasonal HVAC maintenance and repair practices include:

  • Checking the visible refrigerant lines for damaged insulation
  • Cutting off the water supply to the furnace humidifier during the summer
  • Replacement of the humidifier filter and engaging the water supply during the winter.

Following up on the immediate and the seasonal, make sure your Gilbert AZ HVAC inspection, maintenance and repair program includes annual servicing. Along with scheduling heating and cooling preventive home maintenance from American Cooling and Heating, here are some annual energy efficiency best practices that you can handle yourself:

  • Inspect the balance of the outdoor units to ensure that erosion has not caused the pads to become unleveled
  • Inspect your in-home registers to ensure that they are blocked or closed thus placing unnecessary strain on your heat pump, ac or furnace system
  • Prevent excess buildup of algae and mold by pouring a mixture of bleach and water down the inside condensate drain.

As a final step, replace the battery in your carbon monoxide detector. While you are at it, replace the batteries in your fire alarms. The U.S. Consumer product safety commission reports an estimate of 14,000 CO poisoning incidents during 2009. The average yearly CO poisoning death rate falls on 14 people per year. Don’t be one of the few.
