At Brown Service Company, we like our customers to know as much about how their air conditioning and heating equipment works to both cool their home in the Texas summer months as well as keep them warm during the winter months. So, explaining the various options as well as functionality on every service and repair visit is part of our overall quality HVAC service we provide homeowners and commercial businesses.
Brief Overview on How Your Air Conditioner System Works for You
- Primarily, an air conditioning system’s task is to remove the heat from your home or business from inside and take it outside, thereby leaving the inside cooler. The heat that is removed from the inside is blown back into your home over the cold pipes of your system’s evaporator coil.
- The HVAC system’s evaporator coil is filled with refrigerant, which changes from liquid to gas as it absorbs heat and is exchanged for liquid again after expels the heat outside your home before returning. The exterior condensing coil is named because the refrigerant is condensed from a gas to a liquid returning to the evaporator coil inside.
- The pump, which is called a compressor, moves the refreigerant between to the two coils, and the power behind the compressor is the motor. This entire system provides the cooling energy needed to remove heat and cool down your home.
More About Why Service is Needed to Make Your Air Conditioner Works for You
Your HVAC system is reliable source of cooling and heating process, but there are times that service or maintenance is needed to prevent equipment problems or failure as well as extend the life of your HVAC equipment and keep your system performing properly. These are just a few possible problem areas:
- Reduced air flow over the evaporator or condenser coils can reduce the capacity for the system to properly cool the space in your house. For example, you may have a large party where cooking is occuring and the house is packed with friends and family, and your HVAC system cannot keep up and is unable to remove enough heat from the house to keep things cool inside, expecially if the temperature outside is hot. For Fort Worth and surrounding cities in Texas, the summer months remain hot for many months.
- Refrigerant leaks in the system will also cause the system to get less cooling within the coils, thereby lowing the ability for heat exchange to occur and cause the system not be able to keep up as well.
- Keeping air filters clean will help increase air flow through your system and your air ducts supplying sufficient air flow throughout your home. In addition, dirty air filters will not filter out air pollutants in your home, thereby increasing allergens in the air.
Keeping good equipment functioning properly and efficiently also is one way to keep your overall cooling and heating costs down, especially when your HVAC system doesn’t have to work so hard. That’s why many of our cusotmers throughout Fort Worth, Richland Hills, Haltom City and the Mid-Cities rely on Brown Service Company professional technicians to keep them informed of their service, repair and replacement regularly.
