Periodic AC Maintenance Is Vital

April 9, 2019

The air conditioning system in your home may be unseen and almost unheard, but it is a valuable component of your residence. An AC unit that is functioning well enhances the air quality where you live. Good air quality contributes to both the health and comfort of your family and guests. Keeping your AC unit serviced properly is a simple step that reaps many rewards.

Change Those Filters

You can pick up filters at the home improvement store and change them yourself or have AC Mechanical, Inc do it. During cooling season, filters should be changed at least every two months. A dirty filter prevents normal airflow and reduces a system’s efficiency. If air bypasses the filter because it cannot pass through, it can carry dirt into the evaporator coil. You can expect up to a 15 percent improvement in energy consumption with a clean filter.

Hire an Expert to Clean Hard-to-Reach Parts

Even with frequent filter replacement, AC parts such as evaporator coils and condensers will accumulate dirt over time. This dirt causes wear to the parts and impedes airflow. Furthermore, dirt on the condenser can act as insulation and reduce its ability to absorb heat.
