Best Time for HVAC Maintenance

When it comes to scheduling maintenance on your HVAC system, it’s best to focus on maintenance before you rely on a system for the season. So if you’re looking for a furnace tune-up, you’ll want to focus on scheduling maintenance during the fall. On the other hand, the best time to schedule an AC tune-up is in the spring.

Scheduling AC and furnace maintenance during these seasons makes it more likely that you’ll be able to get an appointment, as technicians won’t be busy with emergency repairs. Whenever you schedule your appointment, though, it’s vital to get your HVAC system professionally inspected once a year.

Regular tune-ups ensure that your system is working properly, and it can save time and money that would have otherwise get spent on major problems and emergency repairs. 

Regular maintenance also ensures that your household is getting a supply of clean and healthy air. That’s the kind of peace of mind that we offer at Air Care Heating and Cooling. 

AC Replacement or Repair

There are certain signs that your AC unit might be at the end of its lifespan. On average, AC systems usually last about ten years.

But if you were unable to keep up with annual maintenance, there’s a chance that your system may go out on you even sooner than that. The humidity of Indian Land can also affect the lifespan of your unit.

It’s also a problem if your AC unit frequently breaks down in spite of yearly tune-ups. Over time, the money spent on repairs can add up. Eventually, you may decide that it’s worth the cost to install a replacement unit.

If you notice a sudden spike in your energy bills, it can also be a sign of a greater problem within your HVAC system. When a component comes loose, a refrigerant line develops a leak, debris builds up in your ducts, or the system simply starts to break down due to its age, your entire HVAC system has to work much harder to supply the cool air that you’re used to. This inefficiency is often evidenced by an astronomical electricity bill.

Fortunately, these issues (and many others) can easily be diagnosed by one of our technicians. When you call Air Care Heating and Cooling, we’ll have one of our technicians come out to your home right away. We’ll inspect your heating and cooling equipment for signs of damage or wear.

We can tell you whether your problem is something that can be fixed through replacement parts or a general system tune-up or if it’s something that requires a full upgrade. In either case, we’ll provide you with efficient solutions and an upfront quote for the cost of the repair or replacement so that you can make a fully informed decision on how you want to proceed.

For small repairs, we can usually address the problem that same day. Don’t get stuck waiting in the summer heat — call Air Care Heating and Cooling!

Ductless AC Installation 

Maybe you don’t have an AC to get you through those painful South Carolina summers. Perhaps you have a centralized air conditioning system, but it’s not keeping up with the demands of your household. If either of these sounds familiar, you might want to consider installing a ductless AC system into your home.

Ductless systems are installed as a wall-mounted indoor unit with an outside compressor. They’re quieter and generally more discreet than window units. Installation is simple, with just a small hole drilled into the wall.

Ductless systems have long been recognized for their energy efficiency, with an Energy Star model saving up to 30% on operating costs for heating and cooling the area it’s installed in.

When it comes to costs, a ductless mini-split system is incredibly affordable, especially when compared to the expense of replacing an old AC unit or installing a new one. This is because you don’t have to worry about getting ducts run throughout your home. All you have to think about is finding the right size.

At Air Care Heating and Cooling, our technicians can help you to choose the right system for your specific needs.

Indoor Air Quality Services

When you use your AC and heater throughout the year, you build up a great deal of dust in your vents over time. It’s easy to overlook this until the summer rolls around and you find your home isn’t as cool as it could be. Air that is circulating throughout the home may even be causing asthmatic symptoms for members of your household. If this happens, it’s time for a duct cleaning.

It’s best to make sure that the air filter in your HVAC system is changed every two to three months so that you aren’t collecting dust and debris in your ductwork. For a similar reason, you want to check the dryer duct regularly for clogs that could eventually pose a fire hazard.

If you clean regularly and still find dust on your surfaces, that may mean that you could benefit from an air purifier or a higher-quality air filter. We have the equipment that can work to trap airborne particles and keep everything from bacteria to smoke from getting into your duct system.

Finding Mold

While dust can be an irritant to the respiratory system, mold is even more dangerous. It can spread quickly through a home. If you find mold growing on the vent covers or near any part of your HVAC system, call our professionals right away to have the problem addressed.

We will perform a complete duct cleaning and offer a range of dehumidification services that can prevent moisture build-up in the home. You may be dealing with excess humidity if you find moisture building up on the inner panes of your window or if water stains have appeared on your walls or ceiling. The warning signs are often minor at first, but it won’t be long before they cause damage to your home and health hazards for its residents.

Our experts can diagnose the root of the problem and provide you with solutions ranging from a whole-house dehumidifier to the installation of exhaust fans in key areas throughout your home.
