If your AC Unit looks like this . . . .it’s not good.
Air conditioning coils are one of the main components of your home comfort system and keeping them clean can be one of the best ways to maximize the efficiency of your system. Regardless of the type of unit your home has, regular service and necessary upgrades not only increase comfort levels, but also will markedly reduce your energy bill.
Here are some ways to ensure that your A/C system stays healthy and operational:
- Dust and dirt will build up on coils over time and can cause problems if left unattended. So it’s crucial to have both an indoor and outdoor coil cleaning professionally done on a regular basis. This insures that your A/C unit continues to operate at peak efficiency.
- Additionally, air filters should be replaced or cleaned every 4-6 weeks. If you’re a cat or dog owner, you may need to do this more frequently.
If you fail to keep the coils clean, and dust and dirt do build up, the heat transfer in the condenser coil can become so blocked that it does not cool enough to convert the hot gas back to liquid form. When this occurs, the A/C unit continues to run, but does not cool. Then, the compressor will overheat and eventually quit working.
Keeping up with preventive maintenance on your system will extend the life of the system and provide a comfortable environment for you and your family.
