A Simple Plan For Investigating Options

Newberg Air Conditioning: DIY Maintenance Tips for Your AC Keeping your air conditioning unit well-maintained will save you so much money on your electricity bill and cost on early replacement. Experts in HVAC services recommend having AC maintenance check and repair before the cooling season begins, and due attention must be given to your AC to ensure its full operational efficiency. The HVAC system (Heating, Ventilating, and Air-Conditioning) generally consists of a heat pump or AC and furnace with exterior components such as compressor and condenser coil, and interior components like evaporator and blower. Allow us to give you some tips to maintain your AC applying to whole-home AC or heat pump unit. There is a great danger of working with electricity and your AC’s moving parts, so it is essential to turn off the power completely and unplug it from the outlet or power source. When indoors, turn the power off located on the breaker box, and if outdoor, just locate the shut-off box near the exterior compressor or condenser. The next step is removing the debris from the unit, and you can do this by first removing the fan cage or grill using a screwdriver or wrench, and then vacuuming the interior to remove the debris. When cleaning the fins, avoid using pressure washer as it can damage the fins, use a strong stream from a garden hose and spray inside out to blast any buildup of dirt and debris, and you can also use a commercially available fin cleaning spray to clean very dirty fins. Efficiency in operation is greatly reduced with restricted or reduced air-flow caused by bent fins, so use a commercially available fin straightening tool or butter knife to straighten bent fins, but do it gently to avoid damaging the tubing embedded within the fins. Replace the fan cage once you are done cleaning, rake back debris and leaves outside the condenser and cut any branch, grass or vegetation at least two feet in all directions to ensure unobstructed airflow around the unit. Over time, soil can settle on the pad upon which the condenser unit sits, so it is essential inspecting and leveling the unit by using rot-resistant shims. When cleaning the evaporator coil, you may have to take out few screws and bolts, and remove foil duct tape, use a soft brush to dust the coils, spray a commercially available no-rinse coil cleaner, draining the drip into the pan, and clean the pan with soap, hot water, and bleach. You also need to clean any plugged evaporator drain using a wet or dry vacuum. The filter of your HVAC system must be changed at least twice a year, once before the heating season and once before the cooling season starts.
