To keep its efficiency, your air conditioning unit needs to be cleaned regularly.
There are a few ways you can keep your home’s air conditioning system clean between professional maintenance appointments.
A clean cooling system is more efficient. A thorough cleaning removes dust and debris. Water sprays also help keep the condenser unit cooler, which means it uses less energy. By keeping the rest of your air conditioning system clean, you’ll also improve efficiency. Well-maintained air conditioners last longer. By minimizing dirt and debris, your system won’t have to work as hard to keep your home cool. It means less wear and tear on the unit, which makes it last longer. In addition, dust and debris can collect on your AC vents over time and deteriorate various parts over time. When your AC unit is more efficient and not working as hard to cool your home, guess what? You’ll be saving money, too! You’ll be reducing the risk of major repairs. Plus, a cooling system that lasts longer means you won’t have to replace it as often, leading to even greater savings. Use a garden hose to clean the outside unit to start the cleaning process. Spray it with water to wash off gunk and debris. It can even be set to a stronger setting to blast stubborn debris. Work your way down from the top. Remove any leaves and branches from the outside unit. You should clean the condenser, fins, and evaporator coils of your air conditioner. Evaporator coils or any inside parts can be difficult to clean for some people. Please give us a call if this applies to you. Also, don’t forget your air conditioner’s filter. Replace it every 60 to 90 days. If you have a reusable filter, follow the manufacturer’s directions for cleaning.
