Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning

Right away, you may be asking yourself what exactly is an HVAC system. HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning and it states the functions of the system. They are designed to provide thermal control and indoor comfort to the environment it inhabits. In Florida, stepping into any building, or home with air conditioning is an indescribable feeling. There are several types of HVAC systems that you can find in various areas.

Types

  • Split – This is named after the way that it’s set up. It is comprised of two separate units, a condenser, and an air handler. The condenser is located on the outside of your home and takes the heat from inside the house and transfers it outside. The air handler pushes refrigerant through to cool down your home.
  • Heat Pump – Pumps heat from the house and transfer it outside and vice versa if needed during the wintertime. Not ideal for constantly cold climates and is a variation on the traditional split system. They’re mostly found in condominiums.
  • Packaged Heating and AC System – Unit that has the two components of a split system packaged into one compact structure. It is a great alternative if you don’t have the space to fit a split A/C in your home. They are also typically mounted on the exterior of the home.

Benefits

Common Problems with the AC

Air conditioning is a must-have living in South Florida. The heat outside our doors is intense, and if problems in our air conditioning systems surface, it can be quite costly. Being aware of the possible issues that can arise in your A/C unit will help maintain your system right now and for years to come. If the following problems are persistent, call a professional right away.

  1. Low Refrigerant/Leakage – Refrigerant is a chemical that cools the air inside you’re A/C unit. If leakage occurs, the temperature of the system may fluctuate, and that is a huge no-no if you’re trying to keep cool throughout the scorching summer. Make sure the leak is located and repaired immediately.
  2. Compressor – This is the driving force for the refrigerant in your air conditioning unit. It thrusts the coolant through the coils to keep your house fresh. This is a secondary issue to low refrigerant because if the compressor overheats, it will seize and fail.
  3. Evaporator and Condenser Coils – Evaporator coils absorbs the heat in the air and send it back into the house as cold air. Condenser coils are situated just outside the compressor. The coils can become corroded over time and frozen if not maintained correctly.
  4. Capacitors – The motors that power the compressor and fans rely on the capacitors to function correctly. Jolts of electricity keep the engine working nonstop, and if the capacitor out, the A/C unit will need care very soon.
  5. Filters – Clogged or dirty filters are one of the main reasons for A/C units for dysfunction. Some filters need to be changed monthly, tri-monthly or are reusable. Accumulation of dirt will reduce the air flow to your home and prevent your system from performing to the best of its ability.

AC Repair 101: Leaking Water

Call Now for Maintenance Specials (954) 916-6640

 

AC Repair : 101

Here are some of the most common types of A/C problems we come across. Some are preventable by doing routine maintenance that you can do yourself and others will require professionals.

Topic: “My A/C unit is leaking water”

  • A/C drain lines and pans should be cleaned at least twice a year
  • Drain lines and pans should be treated with tables or liquid that can break up algea and slime that builds up causing the unit back up and start leaking
  • Filters need to be cleaned or replaced approximately every 30 days. A dirty filter can cause your unit to freeze up and start leaking.
  • Do not block A/C intake with boxes, suitcases, etc. This can cause a reduction in air flow causing the unit to freeze up and start leaking.
  • Low freon levels can also cause units to freeze up and drip water
  • Only an AC technician should measure your freon pressures and add freon as necessary.

Note: Low freon pressures usually means there is a leak in the system. There are several methods of leak detection which we will go over on future blogs.
