Exploring The Importance Of Air Conditioner Maintenance

Hello, my name is Darby Aldrich. I would like to talk to you about the importance of maintaining your air conditioning system. When I moved to a hot climate, I did not realize how vital having a running air conditioner was for living comfortably. When the unit just stopped working one day, the temperature inside the house rivaled the piping hot weather outdoors. We had to go to the community center to keep the kids from feeling sick. While we were gone, we had a local HVAC contractor fix the unit. She let us know that some simple maintenance tasks would prevent that situation in the future. I will use this site to closely explore those tasks in great detail. I hope you can use the information to keep your air conditioner running like new. Thanks.

Common Repairs You May Need For Your Walk-In Cooler


Owning a restaurant or food service store means having at least one walk-in cooler. For larger establishments, you may have several of these units. If these units begin to stop functioning or show signs of breaking down, you need repairs quickly. Here are some of the common repairs you may need for your cooler and what to know about these repair needs. 

Seal Repairs

The seals around the doors and throughout the walk-in cooler help maintain the temperature. They also help to reduce the chance of humidity and warm air entering the walk-in. If you begin to notice a fall in temperature, moisture around the door seals, and ice build-up, contact your HVAC contractor.  All of the issues are signs that the seals on your walk-ins are breaking down. Your contractor will check the seals and replace any that are breaking down or damaged.

Frost Inside the Walk-In

One sign you and your staff can not overlook is frost. Frost is easy to see and recognize. It also builds up easily on walls, food racks, and between sections of the cooler. If you begin to notice frost and ice, you may need repairs to your temperature gauge. Frost is a sign your thermostat is not working properly and not maintaining a steady temperature throughout the cooler. Your contractor will check the seals on the walk-in first, then the thermostat. In some cases, both may need replacing. 

Electrical Issues

One of the more dangerous issues you can have with your walk-in involves electrical issues. if you begin to notice lights flickering or your system making loud or strange noises, it could be a serious electrical problem. Remember, electrical issues can lead to fires, making them a repair that should not be ignored. Your contractor will check the electrical system of your walk-in and determine if it is a fuse or faulty wiring. They will also check electrical connections, seals, and connectors. This helps the contractor isolate where the problems are and what electrical system equipment must be repaired first. 

If you begin noticing issues with your walk-in cooler, contact a repair contractor. They will schedule an appointment with you. During their appointment, they will assess your walk-in situations and determine what is causing your issues. A repair plan will be discussed and you can move on from that point. If you have additional questions, your repair contractor can answer those for you.
