Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
Q: How often does my air conditioner need maintenance?
A: Yearly. As your system runs, it accumulates dust and dirt in key areas that affect its efficiencies, such as in the condensing coils and air filters. Left unchecked, your A/C system can lose 5% of its operating efficiency each year because of this buildup, meaning it can’t cool your house as well as it could if it were clean.
Q: Why should I bother with inspections?
A: Inspections pay for themselves through improved energy efficiency, which saves money on utility bills, and a longer-lasting air conditioning unit. A yearly maintenance check by a licensed HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) expert may help reduce your monthly energy bill by up to 15% and help prevent earlier-than-normal breakdowns. An air conditioning maintenance inspection from Distinct Heating & Cooling involves everything from checking the motor, blower, drain line, and coils to analyzing operating pressures and temperatures, the return and supply lines and refrigerant levels, and checking connections. Combined, these services will greatly extend the life of your existing unit so that you can avoid having to replace it outright for longer.
Q: What should I do to clean an air conditioner myself?
A: In the dry and humid weather, an air conditioner provides us with a cool surrounding to relax. Having an air conditioner is very important to bear the heat. However, it requires a little effort from the homeowner to ensure it runs optimally and at pre-set temperature settings. Here is a list of key steps to follow for performing cleanings of your air conditioner unit:
1) Cleaning the air conditioner filters: This is the most important step, as filters are the basic unit of the air conditioner. Clogged and dirty filters obstruct the normal airflow and decrease the efficiency of the system. With normal air flow foiled, air that passes through the filter may carry dust straight into the evaporator coil and damage the coil’s heat-absorbing ability. When you replace a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one, it will help to lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption
2) Air conditioner coils: Dirt & dust is collected on the air conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser over months and years of service. A clean filter prevents the evaporator coil from soiling rapidly. However, the evaporator coil will still collect dirt with passing time. This dirt decreases the airflow and shields the coil which reduces its capability to soak up the heat. Therefore, checking of evaporator coil every year and cleaning it is important for proper working.
3) Coil fins: A fine comb tool which is available in most hardware stores will restore the fins to the original condition. You can use it to retain its places and shape.
4) Condensate drains: On occasion, pass a firm wire through the unit’s drain channels. Clogged drain channels prevent a unit from dropping moisture, and the resulting glut moisture may stain walls or carpet.
