HVAC Repair and Replacement
If your air conditioner or furnace doesn’t turn on, runs noisily, has a hot compressor, or you have any other problems, simply call TakeAire and we will take care of rest, restoring your air conditioner or furnace back to perfect working order. We are experts at repairing and servicing all brands and models of air conditioning systems and /or heating and furnace units.

HVAC Service and Maintenance

  • There is nothing better for your heating and/or air conditioning system than annual maintenance.
  • Annual maintenance allows your system to work at peak efficiency year in and year out.
  • A system that is maintained annually experiences considerably fewer breakdowns, virtually eliminating the need to pay for costly repairs.
  • With annual maintenance, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that your system is saving you money on your utility bills every time it comes on. In some instances, the energy savings are even enough to pay the cost of the planned annual maintenance service.

Air Conditioner Maintenance Tips

Air conditioners moves heat from one area to another, much like the cooling system in a frostless refrigerator. There is a coil inside the unit called the evaporator, and it is the component that gets cold. A fan pulls heated air from the room across the evaporator coil, and then pushes the cooled air into the living area. Warm air is constantly being pulled back through the air conditioner unit and across the coil, creating a complete recirculating process. In addition, the air conditioner helps to lower the humidity level in your home, and thereby enhance the comfort of living areas. The moisture in the heat-laden air tends to collect upon the chilled coils of the evaporator, much as condensation does on the outside of a glass of iced tea during summertime.

What happens to the heat?

It is carried by the refrigeration system to an exterior coil called the condenser. The condenser, which is hot to the touch, is exposed to the outside air. The circulating outside air absorbs the heat, dispelling it outside your home. Meanwhile, air is continually pulled through louvers in the sides of the cabinet and pushed out through the coils. This process eventually eliminates enough of the hot air in your home to make it comfortable.

The same heat-removal principles apply as much to an automobile’s air conditioning system as they do to a centralized home or window unit. In a car, the evaporator (which is located behind the dash) removes the heat and transfers it to the condenser (usually located in front of the car’s radiator). In a home central air conditioning system, the condenser and compressor may be remote (located on the roof or as a separate unit somewhere outside the house). The evaporator of a central air conditioning system is placed within the supply duct plenum of the furnace. The compressor acts as a pump to circulate the refrigerant through the system. Therefore, you can control the temperature in your home with a thermostat which simply turns the compressor on and off to maintain the degree of coolness you desire. In most cases, the system’s blowers continue to run even when the compressor is off. Fan motors consume only a small amount of electricity, and they help keep air circulating within the room even when the cooling system itself is not required. Without continual air circulation, the cold air would collect near the floor, a condition known as “stratification” which can be quite uncomfortable.

All air conditioners require regular maintenance, consisting primarily of the cleaning and replacing of filters at specified intervals (once every 30 days is not too often). Dirty filters, as you would expect, reduce the air flow and lower the efficiency of the unit. In severe cases, filters that fail to do their job can even damage the evaporator and the compressor. Therefore, you must clean or change the filters regularly.

Filters made of foam or aluminum are washable, which means you can flush these filters with a hose from the back side.

Some air conditioner manufacturers recommend that you then coat the clean filter fibers with a special adhesive to trap particles as the air passes through the filter. Fiberglass filters, however, cannot be cleaned; you must replace fiberglass filters when they become dirty.

If a filter has been clogged for a long period of time, lint and dirt can work their way through to clog the evaporator coil itself. You can remedy this situation by applying a special cleaning solution or a strong liquid detergent to the coil. Spread the solution on the coil and allow it to soak for a few minutes. Then spray the coil with water, and brush away the residue from the front. Continue to flush the coil until it appears to be free from lint and dirt once again. The water you use to rinse the evaporator coil will flow out the same drain line that carries off condensate water when the air conditioner is operating. Such water usually flows across the base pan to a sump located at the bottom of the condenser fan blade. This fan blade has a special ring around it (called a “slinger” ring) that rises through the puddle at the bottom of the condenser. The slinger ring helps eliminate dripping – except in the most humid weather – and it also increases the efficiency of the condenser.

 

Forced warm-air heaters require a filter to clean the air as it is being circulated.

The filter is generally a pad of loosely packed fiberglass which traps dust and keeps it from being blown back into rooms. Permanent filters of plastic or wire mesh are washable; the throwaway fiberglass types must be replaced.

Filters should be cleaned or replaced monthly during the heating season. Do not put it off.

A dirty filter will block the air flow, decrease the efficiency of the system, and can even cause extensive damage.

The only visible parts of most home heating units are the registers (or radiators) which allow the heat to flow out into a room.

Registers may be used with either gravity or forced warm-air systems. In the gravity type arrangements, the register outlets are usually located low in the floor or along the baseboard of a room. Gravity system outlets are usually placed along the interior walls of a home, to give better and more economical heating. Floor grills located along outside walls are generally return vents for the cool air being displaced. Do not use an abrasive contact cleaner, since it can scratch or otherwise damage the bimetallic points.

If the thermostat is a mercury vial-type, no cleaning is necessary. The mercury unit is sealed during manufacture.

If heat comes out of the registers but the blowers do not operate, the trouble is in the fan or fan motor, or there is a leak or blockage in the duct work.

In some combination cooling and heating systems without a heat pump, there is a plate which may be slid in or out of the duct nearest the cooler. It is removed to allow cool air to flow through the ducts during summer. In the winter, the plate is inserted in order to keep cool air from leaking into the duct system as it is being used by the heating blowers. Check your system to see if it incorporates one of these plates and, if so, that the plate is in the right position for the heater/cooler in use.

After browsing for air-duct cleaning companies, I have found the best reviewed company was “TakeAir” and decided to use their services for cleaning up my air-duct and A/C. Their technician was very patient and professional, he explained me about the the cleaning impact, process and solution and after he was done I could immediately point out the differences; There was less dust, air was fresh and clean. I am very happy about my choice of using “TakeAir” services and will definitely use their other services in the futures. Thank you for an amazing experience!

"I had a very good experience with those guys. Since my first call to them I had a feeling that I’m talking with professionals and reliable peoples. They replace all the ducts in my house and did a very good and clean job. They also explain me everything about what are the gonna do, how and show me a picture of the mold I had there. I checked on google if what they told me is true (like I do with every service I ask) and apparently the said the true and did the job in a very fair price compare to other companies I had called to. I was very satisfy from their job and I’m sure I’ll call only them for more job I’ll be need and recommend them for my friends and family."
