HVAC Glendale Needed For Unseasonably Warm Weather In AZ

Posted by on Dec 1, 2016 in Blog

When October weather in Glendale stays unseasonably warm, it is a perfect time to continue the outdoor activities which are available in Arizona. Hiking is one example. Warm weather is welcome for hiking many of the day trails around Glendale. Warm weather is also a reminder that the HVAC Glendale homeowners use should be checked and given a tune-up before the change in seasons catches you unaware. Regular maintenance is a mandate for HVAC systems which operate at peak efficiency.

For some homeowners, the heating and air conditioning system operates in the background and they don’t think much about it unless it quits operating. Then, depending upon the location and the outdoor temperatures, a non-operating system can be a true emergency. If the weather is hot, the indoor temperatures can quickly become dangerously warm. They can pose a health emergency to humans and pets.

If the weather turns cold and there is no heat in the residence, it can also be hazardous to the health. Older people and infants are particularly susceptible to dramatic temperature changes. In order to prevent an HVAC emergency, checking the system twice yearly is a good action plan.

A qualified and experienced technicians will provide a tune-up for your heating system in the fall before the weather cools down and the heat is needed. He or she will check out each part of the system and ensure that it is operating at peak efficiency. Every part of the equipment is checked and tested.

Parts that show unacceptable wear can be replaced with new, high-quality parts. Technology is constantly changing, and the replacement parts will ensure that the entire system is operating efficiently. New parts and systems often are more energy efficient than older systems. This feature allows cost savings to apply to the benefit of the home or business owners.

A clean system is also likely to operate more efficiently than one which has dirt or debris affecting the operating parts. Even a thin, almost microscopic layer of dust or moisture can cause the system to work harder to accomplish the heating or cooling which it was designed to do. The service technician checks to ensure that all surfaces of the equipment are clean and free of moisture.

Other parts of the system which can need attention include thermostat settings and gas connections. Thermostats which are not set correctly may cause the heating or cooling system to come on when it is unnecessary. The system is responding to perceived temperature changes, which uses power unnecessarily and can cause significant usage of energy.

All parts of the system are reviewed and the technician may have suggestions for ways in which the system can operate more efficiently. If the system is old or inadequate for the size and configuration of the structure, a new or updated system may be the best investment a homeowner can make. A heating and cooling system is a sizable investment, but one which is welcome when the need for air conditioning or heating arises.
