Cool Thoughts

An air conditioner's filters, coils and fins require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service. Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in performance while your energy use increases.

One of the most important and easiest tasks, which help the efficiency of your system, is to routinely replace or clean filters. A clogged, dirty filter blocks normal air ow and reduces a system's efficiency. When normal airflow is obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil's capacity. Some filters are reusable so need to be cleaned while others need replacing.

An air conditioner's evaporator coil and condenser coil collect dirt over their months and years of service. Dirt in the evaporator coil insulates the coil and reduces its ability to absorb heat. Dirt and debris in the outdoor condenser coil can cause the condenser compressor to overheat and not breathe. The fins on the evaporator and condenser coils should not be bent as that also reduces airflow.

An air conditioning system's refrigerant charge should be checked, as well as, the condensate line and blower motor. These components are also part of regular maintenance.
