Your AC unit has components that work together to provide a comfortable home interior. Regularly inspecting these parts will help you determine if they’re in good working order. This will enable you to perform simple troubleshooting when necessary, or call a certified technician for repairs if it’s something you can’t handle on your own.
In today’s post, the air conditioning installation pros at Air Products & Services discuss the important components you need to pay attention to during your routine inspection.
Air filters work to collect dust and dirt from your indoor air, and are among the most important components of your AC unit. If left neglected, clogged air filters can block normal air flow and disrupt the unit’s efficient operation.
Air filters can either be replaced or reused depending on the instructions of the AC manufacturer. Monthly cleaning is required, while replacement occurs every three months; even more so if you have pets in your home or use your residential AC unit frequently.
If you own a business and have central AC units, you most likely have a system of ducts weaving around the concealed areas of the property. They work to supply rooms with conditioned air and return the same volume of air back to the HVAC equipment.
Perform annual maintenance to find and repair trouble areas before they can begin to waste energy and cause further problems. Ducts must be airtight, with no loose or cracked joints. Turn to your local commercial AC maintenance pros for immediate inspections.
The evaporator and condenser coils of your AC unit need to be cleaned regularly. The former picks up heat from indoor air, while the condenser releases that heat into the outdoors. Since your condenser is located outside, it’s important to keep debris such as dust and leaves off of it. If you have foliage near the AC, consider trimming back the branches.
