Like any machine essential to your daily life, air conditioners require regular, preventative maintenance. If you don’t want to prematurely replace your unit, tune-ups and inspections make plenty of sense. If these small tasks go ignored you could find yourself with a failing air conditioner. Keeping in mind the average lifespan of an AC unit is around 15 years, it’s especially important to keep a close eye on older systems. With the winter months fast approaching, it’s time to make sure that your AC and heating system is in top shape to keep your home comfortable inside when it gets cold outside. Scheduling a fall tune-up will help check your system for these three major signs that your air conditioning products is on its way out. A home’s HVAC may be losing as much as 30 percent of its conditioned air as a result of faulty or leaky gas ducted heating. The HVAC system contains of a long, branching group of duct pipes that snake throughout a home, hidden behind walls, ceilings and floors, or in the attic, crawlspace or garage. Because the majority of this system is hidden, home owners can have a hard time visually assessing ductwork’s condition. Further, even if the ducts were installed correctly, over time connections can loosen or ducts can incur damage.

As with any product designed to be sold to a mass market, manufacturers have attempted to attract business by supplying their heating and air units with as many special features as they can. Some of these features are superficial and superfluous, while others can make a significant difference in both the price of the unit and its ease of use. One such feature would be ductless air conditioning, which has gotten a lot of praise in certain circles. On the flip side, a feature like a glow in the dark thermostat may be helpful, but it probably won’t be a big factor when it comes down to it. A healthy, efficient ductwork system relies on a balanced supply of air sent into the home, along with a healthy amount of return air that moves back into the HVAC equipment. The return air portion of ductwork is particularly prone to problems such as a lack of adequate return grilles, and the HVAC system is prone to leakage too. Proper inspection will identify the root of ductwork problems. There must be an equal amount of return air to support the supply air ducts. For every 1 ton of air conditioning capacity there must be 400 cubic feet per minute of air volume available in both return air duct and supply air. So for example, a three ton air conditioning units will need 1200 CFM of duct duct work in both supply and return air ducts.
