Maintaining Your Air Conditioning Redwood City

Aug 16

Air conditioners' filter fins, coils, and filters require regular maintenance for the unit to function efficiently and efficiently through its years of operation. In the absence of proper maintenance, you will see that the efficiency of your air conditioner and energy use continues to increase. Take a look at these Air Conditioning Redwood City tips to learn more about methods to improve your comfort and increase your air conditioner's effectiveness.

Air Conditioner Filters

The most crucial maintenance task that can ensure your AC's performance is to regularly change or clean the filters. Filters that are clogged and dirty restrict airflow and drastically reduce the system's effectiveness. Additionally, if the airflow is hindered, it could enter the filter and enter directly onto the evaporator coil and decrease the capacity of the coil to absorb heat. Removing a dirty, blocked filter with a fresh one can reduce the energy usage of your air conditioner by between 5 and 15 percent.

Some kinds of filters are reuseable; others require replacing. They come in a range of kinds and efficiency. Replace or clean your air conditioner's filters or filters each month or so in the summer months. Filters may require greater attention when the air conditioner is constantly in use, or is exposed to dusty conditions or have pets who are furry around the household.

Air Conditioner Coils

The evaporator coil of the air conditioner and condenser coil accumulate dirt over the course of many years of use. Clean filters prevent the evaporator's coil from becoming dirty rapidly. However, over time the evaporator coil may still accumulate dirt. The dirt will reduce airflow and also insulates the coil less able to absorb heat. To prevent this from happening make sure to inspect your evaporator coil each the year. Clean it when needed. Cleansing the coil's area by removing any debris and trimming back the foliage minimum two foot (0.6 meters) ensure enough air circulation around your condenser.

Coil Fins

The fins of aluminum on condenser and evaporator coils can be easily bent and hinder airflow through the coil. Wholesalers of air conditioning sell the tool known as"fin comb "fin comb" that will return these fins to their the original state.

Condensate Drains

It is common to pass a strong wire through the drain channels in the unit. A blocked drain channel prevents an appliance from reducing humidity and the resultant excess moisture can cause a discoloration of carpets or walls.

Window Seals for Room Air Conditioners

Each cooling season, check your air conditioning's seal with the frame of the windows to ensure it is in contact with the steel case. The moisture can cause damage to this seal and allow air conditioning to exit your home.
