Every situation is different, which is why we look for the option that best suits the client’s situation while keeping their systems running efficiently. What services do we offer?
Regular maintenance extends the lifespan of a heating unit. However, a unit will fail early if it is not properly installed. Turn to an HVAC contractor in Des Moines for help with this task. The technician will do an analysis of the home to determine which unit is right for the occupant’s needs.
Once the unit is in place, it must be properly maintained. Homeowners may complete certain tasks, such as changing the system filters. Other tasks need to be carried out by a licensed professional, such as recharging the unit and ensuring all wires are connected properly.
If any problem is found during the maintenance visit, the technician will recommend repairs. HVAC components wear with use, so discuss the best way to resolve the existing issue with the technician and prevent a recurrence in the future. Team members are always happy to help customers keep their systems running efficiently.
Many homes today have a combination HVAC system that both heats and cools the home. This unit works harder than a standalone heating system, as it operates during both the hot and cold months. For this reason, homeowners need to have the system inspected annually to ensure no problems are brewing.
If a new system is needed, the technician explains why the current unit cannot or should not be repaired. Often, the cost of repairing the unit is more than the appliance is worth.
Newer systems also tend to be more energy efficient, thanks to advances in the industry over the past decade. Although they must bear the expense of installing the new unit, they often find they pay less to heat and cool their home each month.
Once the new unit is installed, speak to the technician about a maintenance plan. Knowing how and when to maintain the system helps to keep the unit in top operating condition.
A heating or cooling unit ensures the air reaches the desired temperature. However, the ductwork actually delivers the air to the desired areas of the home. Any problem with the ductwork can increase heating and cooling costs while leaving occupants of the home uncomfortable.
Corroded and dirty ducts are commonly seen by HVAC technicians. The technicians may find there are gaps or cracks in the ductwork where treated air is allowed to escape, or the problem may be an inefficient layout. Another issue the technicians commonly encounter is clogged ducts.
In certain situations, cleaning the ducts is enough to restore the efficiency of the system and allow the occupants to breathe clean air once again. However, there are times when the ductwork needs to be replaced. The technician will explain which option is recommended and why.
The air inside homes and other buildings in Des Moines is often dirtier than the air outside. In fact, poor air quality in a home can lead to long-term health issues. Contact us to have the air quality in the home tested and learn what changes need to be made to improve it.
Numerous options are available now to provide clean air in the home. It all starts with the filters used in the HVAC system. If these filters aren’t enough to clean the air, other options should be considered.
The home might benefit from the addition of a whole-house dehumidifier, or a UV germicidal light may be needed to destroy microorganisms in the air. Once the technician tests the air quality in the home, they have a better understanding of what is needed to purify the air the occupants of the residence breathe in daily.
