Maintaining a comfortable living environment in Maryland and Delaware is important to many people. A constant temperature in your home or business will not only keep people happy, it can also help to keep them healthy. However, keeping your HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) equipment running properly can be a full time task if the equipment is old or wearing out. Your first step in maintaining your air conditioning or heating system is to have an experienced contractor, such as Arctic Heating and Air Conditioning, come out for a thorough inspection and some preventative maintenance.
Most maintenance includes testing the equipment, including all the circuitry, verifying the thermostat functions properly and cleaning the appliances. The cleaning may be the most difficult job because most A/C’s require the coolant be removed so the coil in the air exchange can be properly washed. This coil picks up a lot of trash over time, and it isn’t possible for the home owner to clean it properly, but most air conditioning services will remove the coil and place it in an acid bath to clean off the built up gunk.
