Fall HVAC Tips

Fall HVAC Tips

You need to ensure your HVAC system is running well during the fall. If you would want more comfort during the long cold days, your system should be in good working condition. Are you still in doubt whether you need fall HVAC maintenance services? There are numerous benefits. 

First, it is a way of keeping things clean and clear. Note that a lot of dirt may have accumulated in your equipment during the summer. Fall offers an opportunity to deal with this mess by getting rid of the dust and any other debris. In some cases, the nearby bushes may grow, and the leaves may get stuck in the unit’s surface, which results in reduced airflow. Through maintenance, you can clear the bushes and ensure the system is working efficiently. Another benefit of regular maintenance during the season is that you will enjoy better indoor air quality. Here are some HVAC services you should consider:

Cleaning the Vents
Dust tends to accumulate in an HVAC system during the summer. Therefore, take the time to check the vents for any debris. This is a crucial maintenance task as even a small amount of dust can significantly reduce your unit's efficiency. If that happens, you will notice increased monthly bills.

Checking the Thermostat
The leaves that fall during autumn may be beautiful, but they can be disastrous for your unit. Check the thermostat to confirm that the equipment is not being overworked. If it shows accurate temperature readings, then it’s in good working condition. If you have a programmable thermostat, check the settings and program it according to the current weather.

Get New Air Filters
The air filters in your unit should be cleaned and replaced regularly. If you skipped this maintenance task, the fall is the ideal time to get back on track. Depending on certain factors within your home, experts recommend replacing your air filters every 30 to 90 days.

Cleaning the Condensation Drain Line
This part of your HVAC system helps to drain moisture away through PVC piping. Ensure the piping is always clear of clogging to prevent water overflow inside your property. If the condensation line is cleared, you will not need to worry about drip pan overflow.

Replace the Entire System
If you seek the above HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area but still experience problems, you should consider investing in a new system. During the season, the weather will become colder, and your unit will need to work harder to heat your home. Generally, this is a great time to replace your equipment.

  • On July 8, 2021, A Plus Quality Inc installed a boiler in my house. The company did a great job. The manager, Shak, came to give me a very detailed estimate. He also followed up every steps. He had a good team to come to do the installation. After installation, they check and explaining to me everything before leaving. I am really impressed. Besides, the office manager, Sandi, was very helpful too. I would like to recommend A Plus Quality Inc to my friends.

FAQ

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • What are mini-split advantages?

    Just as the name implies, a “mini-split” system is a “split system” however available in smaller capacities, for single room to whole house conditioning. Mini-split systems may range from as small as 9,000 BTUh per hour, comparable to say, a small window AC unit, for individual room use, up to 4 and 5 ton capacities for “Room By Room” (also known as “Zoning”) and whole house conditioning. With near universal design, mini-splits are “heat pumps” which provide both heating and cooling for a home. Here are key advantages when compared to traditional split systems:

    Efficiency- Mini-splits are highly engineered systems which offer attractive operating efficiencies, in many instances, eligible for utility company rebates.
    Heat Pump- Most mini-split systems are heat pumps, providing year-round comfort.
    Solar friendly- Due to very low power requirements, mini-splits are an ideal complement to “Net Zero Energy” homes, or any home using renewable power.
    Carbon footprint- Mini-splits are 100% electric, with zero operating emissions of any type.
    Zoning- Most mini-split manufacturers offer systems capable of room-by-room “zoning”, to account for peak demands of a room based upon construction type, exposure orientation and usage.
    Variable capacity- Mini-splits are typically DC inverter driven. That is, a variable speed compressor which modulates in proportion to instantaneous demand. Most conventional split systems, by comparison, operate with an ON-OFF strategy. (Would you use an ON-OFF switch as the accelerator in your vehicle?)
    Location, Location, Location!- Mini-split outdoor units are compact; they can be located far away from noise-sensitive areas, such as bedrooms and home offices. Mini-split indoor units have the ability to be installed where conventional systems cannot.
    They’re perfect for additions and remodels where access to current HVAC system is difficult to access.
    Modern mini-split systems are remarkably quiet; in fact, many times their operation is unnoticed by the end user.
