Air Conditioning Tips
We have all experienced the torrid summer heat in South Texas. To keep your house cool it is important to keep your air conditioning equipment in top working condition. When was the last time your serviced your air conditioner.
It is important to keep your equipment clean so it will operate properly. Have you had your freon levels checked? Why go all summer long paying the high cost of electricity when an air conditioner checkup could eliminate the problem.When was the last time you changed your air conditioning filter? Did you know a dirty air conditioning filter can cause your air conditioner to use 5 percent more electricity? A dirty air filter restricts air flow causing your equipment to work harder and use more energy. A dirty air filter leads to a dirty evaporator coil. If your air conditioner evaporator coil gets dirty it is expensive to clean. Change your air conditioner filter regularly and keep these problems form happening.On a split system, the outside unit is called a condenser. The condenser also has a coil which air passes through to cool the freon that has collected heat from your house. An air conditioner actually pulls heat from the house. The absence of heat is cool. It is very important to keep the condenser coil clean also. When mowing the lawn it is a good idea to turn the air conditioner off to keep dirt and grass from being sucked into the condenser coils. It is also a good idea to use a garden hose to was down the coils every month or two in the summer.
Be careful not to bend the fins on the coil as this will ruin the coil. Ask your A/C service tech to show you how to do this properly.Have your air conditioning and heating equipment checked out prior to their respective seasons. This is especially true when dealing with older equipment. 1st Class Air offers an Air Conditioning Performance Checkup for $39.90. Call us today and have your homes air conditioner checked.
