Are you ready for your summer? What about your air conditioning? When was the last time your air conditioning was maintained? There are some hazards of not maintaining your air conditioner. Dust, dirt, bacteria, and other harmful pollutants can accumulate in your air conditioner. It not only affects the air conditioner performance but also contributes to tributes to indoor air pollution. Prolonged use and repeated air circulation will accumulate these pollutants onto your filter and evaporator that will circulate these pollutants, reduce the airflow, and place stress on the AC unit. Maintaining your air conditioner will improve your air quality and equipment’s lifespan.
Some general maintenance checklist items:
Check your air filters and replace them if necessary.
Clean evaporator and condenser coils
Clean condensate lines and drain pans and clear any clogs
Inspect belts and pulleys for wear and replace if necessary
Check refrigeration levels and inspect refrigeration lines for any leaks
Check to the fan motor and blowers are correctly operating
Check thermostat and controls for proper operation
Lubricate moving parts
Performing these tasks will extend the air conditioner’s service life, save on energy consumption, reduce operation costs, and improve air quality. Hire an HVAC professional to get the most out of the system and ensure the AC unit performs the best that it can.
