When it comes to Central Air Service
All Seasons Heating & Cooling Experts Are Here To Serve
Every functional system requires periodic maintenance for their continuous optimal performance. Just like other systems, your central air conditioning system is always at work to keep you cool through the season and its components such as coils, filters, fins and other running components bound to wear and tear over the time. All these components require routine maintenance for their effective performance in keeping your home cool optimally. For you to get best out of your central air service, All Seasons HVAC always advises to keep maintenance culture to let your system be on top of maintenance. The consequence of not keeping this maintenance culture for your central air system will make your unit to over-work and reduces its efficiency which can lead to high cost of repairs.
Clean or Change of Filters
Over the time, from our experience, it was observed that dirty air filters are parts of the primary causes of maintenance problems of central air conditioners. Blocked or slow airflow through the system has been attributed to a dirty air filter which tends to reduce cooling power and overall efficiency. This problem over the time can lead to cold air build up inside the system; thereby reducing the internal temperature and result in ice form on the system’s coils as a sign of malfunctioning. The unit will then be working with additional energy due to the blockage that forces other components of the system to work with additional power resulting in wearing and tearing of the components.
However, these problems can be effectively prevented by regular maintenance of your filters. The disposable filters are recommended to be replaced before the starting of a new cooling season and based on the type of filter; another replacement needs to take place every 1 to 3 months after that. However, the filters’ specifications need to be strictly followed to achieve the best result.
If your unit has the reusable filter, you can wash it thoroughly with water and air-dry it before placing it back into the system. Avoid wiping your filter when it is dry as it may make it unusable and resulting to an issue that may cost you more to maintain. Doing this as recommended (1 to 3 months) will go a long way in helping your air conditioners working efficiently. However, whenever you are carrying out this maintenance, make sure you shut off your air conditioner as it is not safe for your system to be working without a filter in it.
Coil and Fin Maintenance
Other components that need regular maintenance are condenser and evaporator coils. Your air conditioner’s condenser and evaporator’s coils tend to accumulate debris and a lot of dirt after an extended operational period. Though a clean filter will go a long way in preventing and minimizing the rate the dirt is attacking those components, yet they should be cleaned and occasionally maintain for optimal performance.
The outdoor condenser coil can be protected by periodically removing possible substances such as grasses, papers, and other sources of debris from the outdoor unit area. Putting plant and flower pots on the outdoor unit can contribute to dirt and debris formation; so, avoid it. Preventing dirt and debris from your unit will improve the overall efficiency of the system.
However, whenever you discover any malfunction from your air conditioner, don’t hesitate to call All Seasons HVAC. Our trained technicians can professional handle your air conditioner troubleshooting, repairs, and installation.
