Carney & Son is Heating and Air Charleston SC Can Count On!

In many aspects, your home’s central heating and air system is comparable to a car. Much like a car, your HVAC system needs regular maintenance to operate at peak performance and efficiency. Carney & Son is Heating and Air Charleston SC can count on!

Not maintaining your Heating and Air System

HVAC performance will begin to suffer fairly quickly, and you’ll experience a major breakdown far quicker. Your system will finally wear out for good much faster.

Therefore, it’s important to have your system maintained regularly in order to make sure it is:

  • Running at its absolute best
  • Free from any defects or issues that may be about to cause a major breakdown.

Even if you’ve just had a brand-new HVAC system installed, maintenance services are still necessary. Manufacturers require you to have your system serviced at least once a year to keep all parts warranties valid.

Regular Maintenance Extends the Life of Your System for Heating and Air Charleston SC

Unlike your car, it is probably safe to say that many of you have never disassembled or looked in great depth at our home’s HVAC system. If you have, there is a strong chance you didn’t know too much about what you were looking at. While this isn’t abnormal, if you don’t have a professional look at it every now and again, you may not know problems exist.

This is where regular preventative maintenance can be extremely valuable. Having a highly-trained and certified technician maintain your system will allow them to inspect some of its most critical components. This will ensure that they are in good working order and free from any potential signs of trouble. This is particularly important for your coils, blower motor, fans, belts, and more.

A maintenance service includes checking parts, cleaning, tightening, and lubrication of moving parts. This will ensure they’re in peak working condition and your system is ready for the long haul. Even though you’ll be putting many hours of use into your HVAC system, you can have the confidence it will be up to the task and sustain as little wear and tear as possible. In the long term, a high-quality maintenance service can extend the life of your system. Adding several years to its life will save you thousands of dollars on a replacement system.

Detecting Coolant Leaks in Your Heating and Air System

Regular maintenance, to a certain extent, can also help protect the environment. Air conditioning refrigerants are chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which contribute to ozone depletion. Not only can early detection of a leak stop these CFCs from escaping into the atmosphere, where they can do serious harm to the planet, but you won’t have to replace the expensive Freon that escaped. The government started phasing out R-22 Freon back in 2010. They would like to see it completely out of use by 2020. As the phase-out process continues, simple supply and demand states it will only get more expensive to charge your unit as this deadline draws near. Most importantly, leaking refrigerant is also one of the leading causes of system failure; leaks often leading to Freon lines freezing up and icing over, potentially causing other damage including total system failure.
