Spring Time and Your Air Conditioning Maintenance
Spring is here and summer is right around the corner! When you’re spring cleaning, don’t forget to add cleaning your Air Conditioning System (Central Air) to your to do list. While inspecting sometimes I see this neglected.
Some quick tips for you “do it yourself”ers:
– Replace your filters
– Spray out your condenser coils and fins using a garden hose but be careful not to damage the fins. (Always disconnect your power first)
– If your fins are bent, you are able to purchase fin combs though a local distributor to straighten them out. Bent combs will affect the efficiency of your unit and can cause the unit to become unoperational.
– If you suspect Freon issues, contact an HVAC professional. It’s important to ensure no harmful gases are leaked into the atmosphere
– If you don’t have time or patience, call a professional HVAC technician
