Central air conditioning units in homes and businesses are easy to repair when the right parts are available. A homeowner who has experience can replace their regenerative thermal oxidizer, and an office manager can easily change air filters. Each of the items below must be handled properly to ensure the HVAC system is working at all times.
Air filters are the most important part of any central air system. People want to have warm and cool air running through their space, but the filters make the air clean.
Air filters come in many styles to keep the air as clean as the owner prefers. There are filters that simply keep dust and dirt out of the air ducts. However, there are other filters that can keep the air extremely clean or even sterile. Choosing the filters is necessary, but the filters must be replaced regularly. Regular replacement of the filter keeps the filters from becoming clogged or ineffective.
The condenser coils can be replaced by a wise homeowner who knows how to open the air conditioner casing. These coils can become misshapen over time, and they must be replaced so that the cooling fluid will pass through them. The coils may leak, and leaks must be patched.
The furnace contains a heating element that allows the air to be warmed before being blown into the system by a fan. If the heating element is damaged, it will not heat the air properly. The homeowner must replace the heating element or ensure the heating element is attached to the proper power sources.
The fans and fan blades in a system can become damaged and ineffective. Every part of the system may work very well, but the fans blow the air into the ducts. Without three or four working fan blades, air will not blow evenly through the system. Some parts of the building may feel the effects and others will not.
Repairing the parts of an air conditioning and heating units keeps them working properly, and purchasing new parts helps to expedite repairs to the system.
