Why You Should Always Keep Your Air Conditioning Clean

Just like any other piece of machinery, your home’s heating and air conditioning systems need regular and routine maintenance to ensure maximum efficiency, as well as keeping it running at peak performance. There’s nothing more inconvenient than finding your air conditioner has suddenly stopped working right in the middle of the sweltering summer season.

To avoid these potential problems, Kemnitz Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc. offers our services to help keep your air conditioning unit in tip-top shape, keeping your home cool and comfortable and your schedule free of any unwanted HVAC emergencies. In addition, there are a few steps that homeowners can take to make sure your air conditioning unit runs smoothly.

Clear the Filters
Filters keep unwanted dust and debris out of your heating and air conditioning system. Because of this, they’re often the first parts of your unit to get clogged up with these obstructions. This causes reduced air flow, making your system work double time to keep up with your cooling needs, and racking up your utility bills to boot. You can keep your air filters clean by regularly cleaning them, or replacing them.

Clean the Coils
Your heating and air conditioning system will have evaporator and condenser coils. The location of these important parts depends on what type of air conditioner you have. These coils contain refrigerant, which is responsible for the actual cooling process that provides your home with cool comfortable air. They’re also susceptible to moisture due to the high humidity that their processes often cause, making it a haven for mold and mildew growth.

Humidity accelerates rusting and also allows dirt and grime to stick to the coil’s surface. A thorough cleaning of the coils should always be done by a professional, but you can help keep it clean by regularly doing a visual check and clearing away any of the easily accessed areas.
