The Essential Laws of Cooling Explained

Newberg Air Conditioning: DIY Maintenance Tips and Tricks for Your AC Many homeowners overlook the importance of regular air conditioning unit maintenance in reducing the number of energy expenses and the cost of early replacement, as well as in extending the lifespan of their AC. According to HVAC experts, the best time to do a regular maintenance check is before the cooling season begins, and it pays off giving extra attention to your AC to operate it its full efficiency. A home’s HVAC system (Heating, Ventilating, and Air-Conditioning) consists of either a furnace and AC or heat pump, which both cools and heats, and both have interior evaporator and blower, and exterior compressor and condenser coil. Allow us to provide you some tips and trick to maintain or take care of your 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. On the exterior compressor or condenser, find the exterior shut-off box adjacent to the unit, and turn off the power indoors at the breaker box. With the use of a wrench or screwdriver, you can remove the fasteners and lift the fan grill or cage away from the top of the unit, then wet or dry vacuum to clean the dust and dirt from the unit’s interior. 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. Bent fins can affect the airflow and efficiency of your unit, so straighten bent fins with the use of a commercially available fin straightening tool or butter knife and be gentle so as not to damage the tubing embedded within the fins. Clean the area around the unit by raking the leaves and debris outside the unit condenser, cut branches and other forms of vegetation around on the outside condenser at least two feet in all directions, and when it is not in use during winter months, partially cover the top of the unit with plywood or plastic to prevent debris from falling into the unit. As time passes by, the pad upon which the condenser unit sits may start to tip as the soil settles beneath it, that may affect the functioning, so it is important to check the level and level the unit using rot-resistant shims. You need to remove foil duct tapes and unscrew bolts and screws to clean the evaporator coils, dust the coils using a soft brush, spray a commercially available no-rinse coil cleaner, drain drip into the pan, and clean the pan with soap, hot water, and bleach. To clear any growing biological matter for plugged evaporator, use wet/dry vacuum for 2-3 minutes then turn off. Change the blower filter at least twice a year before the heating season begins.
