System Maintenance In Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, AZ and Valley Wide
Once an HVAC system is installed, you can’t just set it and forget it. It requires regular maintenance to ensure it keeps running smoothly. In Arizona, where we have such hot summer days and cold winter nights, it’s crucial that our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems are running at their highest capacity. That doesn’t just make sure you’re more comfortable; it also keeps costs down by making sure things run efficiently and keeps the air you’re breathing in as clean as possible. A dirty filter can reduce the system output up to 30%.
An inspection can include the entirety of the HVAC system. At Norris Air Incorporated, that means going over the air conditioner, heat pump, furnace, filters, drains, and thermostat. Our technicians rinse the outdoor coils to get rid of dirt that could block the fins and clean the fan too. We’ll make sure that loose screws are tightened up, so they aren’t jiggling around. If things are blocked up or out of balance it can lead to problems with the airflow, causing the motor to overheat.
Some things need to be regularly replaced. For instance, we can swap out the blower filter each time we visit. The furnace filter should also be inspected and changed as needed, and the lines that distribute coolant are checked to make sure there aren’t any leaks. The EPA says that should be done by a professional who knows how to properly handle the chemicals. HVAC units produce from 5-20 gallons of water a day. When a drain becomes clogged, water builds up in the overflow pan, and over time, will spill out over the sides. Without proper maintenance, that water can end up in your home causing thousands of dollars in damage.
Some HVAC systems are kept outside the home, and for those, it’s especially important that it’s regularly inspected since it’ll be exposed to the elements. The technicians at Norris Air make sure there isn’t too much debris crowding the unit and that it hasn’t been damaged by falling limbs or weather events. Over time, failure to clean the condenser coils can cause a malfunction and require a replacement.
The best practice is to have your HVAC system inspected twice a year. Typically, that’s done in the Spring, before things get too hot, and again in the Fall, before temperatures drop into the 40’s. Norris Air Incorporated offers our USA Club Membership for those regularly scheduled inspections. That comes with some extra savings guarantees, like a 15% discount on most service repairs and a promise that we don’t charge overtime fees while you’re part of the Ultimate Savings Agreement.
