Now that spring is officially here, people everywhere are jumping into spring cleaning. There’s something about the New England sunshine and the crisp air that make us want to throw the windows open and freshen up our homes. If you have your checklist in hand and you’re ready to beat the rugs and scrub the windows, there’s one more item you’ll want to add to your list – your air conditioning unit.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “Proper maintenance can help keep your air conditioner running efficiently and prolong the life of the unit.” There are several items that should be inspected and cleaned to make sure your A.C. is performing at its peak. Don’t forget, we don’t often make it to summer without having already turned on the air conditioner a few times. Now is the perfect time to get it tuned up.
Air conditioner maintenance checklist
• Start off with a clean filter and replace every month during the cooling season. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that replacing dirty, clogged filters with new ones reduces energy use by 5 to 15 percent which, of course, saves you money on your energy bill. See more conservation tips.
• Clean around the evaporator coil. Evaporator coils are generally hidden away inside a blower cabinet, furnace, or plenum, which may be tucked back in a closet, attic or crawl space. Dirty or blocked evaporator coils can cause you’re A.C. system to freeze up.
• Clean around the outdoor condenser coils. Remove debris and trim brush within a two-foot radius of your system.
• Check the fins on the evaporator and condenser. If fins are bent, you can purchase a fin comb from an A.C. wholesaler to straighten them out.
Of course the easiest way to check this off your to-do list is to just give us a call at 203-515-8088.
