When it comes to ensuring that your air conditioning system functions as effectively and efficiently as possible for as long as possible, it’s essential that you schedule routine Del City, OK AC maintenance services. But what about in between appointments?
There is a lot that can go wrong in the space of a year (or 6 months, if you have a heat pump). Fortunately, though, there are steps you can take to ensure that your air conditioner is consistently maintained throughout the year.
Air Conditioner “Housekeeping”
You probably clean your home on a fairly regular basis, right? You dust, mop, ensure that dirt and debris don’t get tracked in. The same care should apply to your air conditioner, particularly to the condenser unit. This is the outdoor unit of your air conditioner, and probably not something you give a lot of thought to, despite its important role.
While the inside component of your air conditioner is responsible for absorbing heat from your home’s air, the outside condenser unit must expel that heat to the air outside. So without the condenser, the warm air from your home would have nowhere to go.
Since this unit is outside, and thus exposed to inclement weather and other outdoor threats, it’s important that you take very good care of it, and protect it from the buildup of dirt, debris, and anything else that could be obstructing its performance. This can include lawn clippings, mulch, and even tree roots.
Keeping the area around your condenser unit clean helps keep airflow where it should be, and therefore helps your air conditioning system to run as efficiently as it should. Plus, it’s a fairly simple task. It is important to remember though, that cleaning coils and other inside components of your air conditioner should be left to the professionals.
