Importance of Air Conditioning Maintenance

Get peace of mind with regular air conditioner maintenance from Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning.

As spring approaches, it’s time to think about getting your HVAC system ready for the summer. It’s been months since most of us have used our air conditioner. Finding out the air conditioner in your home does not work during the first heat wave can be a big problem. Below are some of the important reasons why routine scheduled maintenance will help get your Air Conditioning system serviced and ready for summer.

Replacing the Air Filter

Forgetting to change the air filter can cause big problems for your HVAC system. When the air filter is clogged, it means that the air conditioner has to work harder to move air throughout your home. The harder your air conditioner has to work it could cause stress to your system and lead to costly breakdowns. There are many options to update your filters and improve your indoor air quality.

Unclogging the AC Drains

It’s easy to see the problems from clogged drains in the sinks and showers in your home. It is much harder to see the problems from a clogged AC drain.  Often by the time you see evidence of a clogged AC drain in your home it has led to damage. A professional HVAC technician will make sure the drain is clean and flowing smoothly.

Cleaning the Air Conditioning coils

Cleaning the condenser coils is an important part of maintenance. A qualified service technician will clean the dirt and debris from the coils and this will help your system operate more efficiently.

Checking the Thermostat

It’s a good idea to check the batteries, programming and operation of your thermostat each season. A thermostat problem can be a direct cause of a cooling issue.

Schedule a certified HVAC Professional

Be sure to schedule maintenance for your air conditioner with a professional and qualified service technician at Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning. Maintenance and tune up’s will increase the life of your equipment, find potential break downs and make sure your air conditioner runs efficiently so you are ready for the hot summer temperatures.

How Long Will My Furnace Filter Last?

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

air-fliter-cuCalifornia has recently experienced a series of major fires. Thankfully for us in the Central Valley, these fires were in the north and south of the state. But we’re not strangers to these disasters: last summer wildfires scorched more than 1700 acres in Fresno and Mariposa counties. This caused a plunge in air quality for surrounding areas. When this happens, we recommend making an immediate change to the furnace filter on your HVAC cabinet. Otherwise, extra pollutants trapped in the filter will further drop indoor air quality.

The Relation between Air Conditioning and Indoor Air Quality

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

The air conditioning system in your home moves a ton of air during its operation. It is responsible for pushing huge volumes of air through your ductwork and into your home. Because of that, it has a huge impact on the quality of the air that it is moving. The Fresno air conditioning professionals at Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning have years of experience working with all different kinds of AC systems and air quality products. We wanted to share a little bit about how your AC can impact your home’s air quality.

Air Conditioning and Indoor Air Quality

Your air conditioning system is a huge component of your home. But it can do more than just cool the air in your home—it can also be used as a powerful indoor air quality control system. If you need any type of air conditioning services in Fresno, CA, just call Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning. Check out a few of the ways that you can use your air conditioning system to clean your air.

  • Humidity control – Your air conditioning system naturally provides dehumidification. As the warm air form your home passes over the cooling coils, the moisture gets deposited on them in the form of condensation. Running your air conditioning system is a great way to not only cool your home but also keep humidity under control. The Fresno air conditioning professionals at Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning can repair any issue that you might be having with your AC system.
  • Air filters – Many different brands of air filtering products can be installed in the air handler or ductwork of your AC system. These filters remove a large range of contaminants like dust, dirt, pet dander, pollen and many other pollutants. By running your air conditioning system you actually can get cleaner air.
  • Germicidal lights – UV germicidal lights are another great way that you can clean your air just by turning on your AC. UV germicidal lights are also installed in your air handler or ductwork. They destroy organic contaminants like viruses, mold spores and bacteria as they pass through the ducts and the UV light.

If you’re interested in air conditioning installation, repair or maintenance in Fresno, CA, call Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning. We can also talk with you about improving the quality of air in your home with air filter, duct cleaning, UV germicidal lights and more.
