What Should Be Included In A Spring AC Maintenance Check

AC Unit Checkup

When is the best time to schedule an AC maintenance check?

The best time for AC maintenance is the springtime. The weather is warm enough to make maintenance easier to manage, but not so warm that the air conditioner is under a heavy workload. For many homeowners, the springtime is also home maintenance season, and an AC maintenance check should be on the list.

The reason is that when summer arrives, your air conditioner will be pushed much harder. If there are any underlying issues, no matter how minor, they can cause your system to fail when the weather gets hot. This is why HVAC professionals are busiest during the summer. If you wait for summer to get your air conditioner checked, it may be difficult to secure an appointment in a timely manner. Read more

What Are Air Conditioner SEER Ratings?

SEER ratings stand for seasonal energy efficiency ratio, and they are a single-number metric for determining an air conditioner’s operational efficiency. SEER ratings are calculated by comparing an air conditioner’s cooling output and its energy usage. In short, the less energy an air conditioner needs to produce one unit of cooling, the higher its SEER rating. Higher ratings mean better efficiency.

Specifically, SEER ratings look at how many watt-hours an air conditioner needs to output one British Thermal Unit (BTU) of cooling. There’s a lot of math involved, which is why the industry has reduced it down to a single number. Read more

What HVAC Systems Are Available For Commercial Buildings?

Commercial HVAC systems are larger and more powerful than residential systems, but they are also designed for efficient, reliable operation. There are several commercial HVAC options available, including variable-air-volume systems, heat pump systems and systems that rely on cooling towers, chillers and boilers. Some commercial HVAC systems are designed for rooftop installation, while others are intended for group installation. Read more

What Is A Heat Pump?

A heat pump is an air conditioner that’s built with a reversing valve, so it can be used to cool and heat a building. Though it sounds like a heat pump is only for heating, the term refers to the movement of heat, so a heat pump moves thermal energy from one place to another.

Heat pumps move this thermal energy against a thermal gradient. What does that mean? It means the system transfers heat from a place where there is less heat, to a place where there is more heat. In practice, this means moving heat from inside a building to the hotter exterior air. In the winter, it means moving heat from the cold outside air to inside. Read more
