A central heating & cooling unit is a system, which primary function is to provide heating and cooling needs during the changing seasons.
Although these systems are different, they are matched to work together.
Both have a Trane system that can be customized from a range of energy efficiency gauge.
If you have an old HVAC unit running in your household and are thinking about whether or not now is the right time to install a new one, here are two routine assessments that can help you make the decision.
How old is your AC unit? Is it more than ten years?
Is your air conditioner boiler running a lot?
Are you paying higher bills than usual?
Check for air leaks
There are quite a few techniques in checking for air leaks, but the bubble method is the most popular.
Although it is highly recommended that professional contractors do this, you may do it yourself for initial assessment, if you want.
You will need a soapy solution applied to points, where there are suspected leaks.
A bubbling up effect will show when leaks are present.
Air leaks can make electric bills higher and can make the system push its performance way higher than it’s designed to do.
If this is the case, the system may cut its supposed years of service and you, spending more on repair.
Check if it’s still appropriate for your place’s size
Determining the size of a central a/c unit is crucial as it will help you identify which maintenance measures are appropriate to your home.
