Servicing Your AC Unit

Wondering about the importance of AC inspections and servicing? For one thing, in order for the AC unit to operate smoothly and efficiently over the course of its lifetime, you need to maintain it on a regular basis. It’s not just the filters that need periodic cleaning, but the fins and coils of the air conditioner as well.

Completely disregarding routine maintenance results in a constant decline in air conditioning effectiveness and performance while increasing energy consumption.

Replacing or cleaning the filters on a regular basis is the most important and essential task for ensuring the overall effectiveness and reliability of your air conditioner. Filters that are dirty or clogged lessen the amount of airflow and, as a result, the performance of the unit.

Furthermore, when the airflow is partially blocked, dirt can circumvent the filter and enter the evaporator coil, impairing the coil’s ability to absorb heat. Thus, you can reduce your air conditioner’s energy consumption if you periodically clean the filter or if it’s already worn out, replace it with a new one.
