Do you want lower energy bills and improved HVAC efficiency? Don’t wait for your system to fail to fix it. Keep it clean and high functioning with regular maintenance. Set up a preventive maintenance contract that includes service inspections, air filter maintenance, corrective HVAC maintenance, emergency and trouble-call coverage, refrigerant containment service, and service documentation.
Air Conditioner Filters
Replace or clean the filters regularly in your air conditioner unit. If air can’t get through a dirty filter, it backs up and could carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil. That can be problematic for the system, impairing the coil’s ability to absorb heat. It is a wasteful and inefficient machine at this point, costing more to run it than to replace or clean it. You can lower your energy consumption significantly – from 5 to 15 percent – simply by keeping the filters free of obstructing debris. How often they must be changed out or cleaned depends on how frequently you are using the air conditioner, the quality of air where you live and whether you have shedding pets. A professional can best advise when and how to undertake the process of filter cleaning or replacement.
Your air conditioner’s coil will accumulate dirt and grime eventually, regardless of how vigilant you are about replacing the filters. As a responsible homeowner, you are tasked with having the evaporator coil checked annually and cleaned when necessary. How often that will occur again depends on various environmental and circumstantial factors. Are the coils outside? If so, what is the air quality like? Is there pollen, dust, foliage, and pollutants around the area? Be mindful that all these things can damage your coils. Be prepared and proactive, so they don’t get destroyed.
