Why We Love HVAC Restoration (And So Should You!)
Your HVAC unit is responsible for heating and cooling your home and it may be overdue for an HVAC restoration. It’s an essential component for ensuring the comfort of your family. Unfortunately, there are times when the unit might need to be restored or even replaced. There is a process to consider when you’re restoring your HVAC unit so that the system runs properly and efficiently.
One of the reasons you want to restore the unit is for energy efficiency. A unit that has dirty filters or components that don’t operate as they should can lead to a higher utility bill each month. Some of the contaminants might not be visible to the naked eye until you begin removing the outer layers of the unit. Filters are used with the unit, but dirt and debris can still settle into it, leading to overuse by the system. A clean unit that is properly restored doesn’t strain as hard to cool or heat the home, which prolongs the life of the unit.
When people live in a home or enter a business, there are pollutants that circulate in the air. The pollutants are pulled through the filters of the HVAC system and can begin to clog the filters and the other components. When the system operates properly and the filters are changed as they should be, then these pollutants can circulate through the system instead of lingering in the air for everyone to breathe. The contaminants are usually seen more by people who have respiratory issues and find it hard to breathe in air with large amounts of dust and dander.
An inspection of the HVAC unit can reveal issues with the wiring or other components aside from the ones that you often think about replacing. There could be obstructions that aren’t clearly seen or moisture that is accumulating in areas of the unit, preventing the system from working properly. Restoring the unit can clear away the moisture while you discover exactly where it is coming from in the first place. This is an important part of restoring your HVAC unit because you don’t want moisture to settle in other parts of the system and lead to a short in the electrical components.
A benefit of restoring your unit is that you can remove any debris, plants, or bushes that are around it that would prevent proper airflow through the system. When air can’t easily flow through the unit, then it often struggles to run and can sometimes overheat, which can mean spending a large sum of money for a new unit when the only thing that you have to do is restore it beforehand.
If there has been damage to the unit from smoke, fire, or water, then the unit should be restored before it’s used again. Any kind of smoke or fire can damage the electrical components of the unit and can sometimes cause a fire to develop that would completely destroy the system. Water damage can have the same impact on the unit. Before using the system, check to see that all of the parts are clean and free of anything that would inhibit proper function.
