Getting your Air Conditioner ready for the Summer.

Getting your Air Conditioner ready for the Summer. Your Heating and Cooling HVAC system.

The heat and humidity is just around the corner.
All air conditioning systems should be serviced at the beginning of each cooling season by a qualified service company.
There are many components that can only be checked with specialized tools like refrigerant pressures, air volume, electrical voltages and amperages.
In addition to those items some other components need regular cleanings like the blower wheel, evaporator and condenser coils, the condensate drain and filter.
 

Some things a homeowner can do for themselves would be to ensure that there are no grass, shrubs, or other items impeding the air flow around the outside unit. Replacing the air filter indoors. The most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to routinely replace or clean its filters. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system's efficiency significantly. With normal airflow obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil's heat-absorbing capacity. Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner's energy consumption by 5% to 15%. A clean, properly serviced and adjusted system will operate for less money, last longer and is less likely to have an untimely breakdown.
