How Often is Ac Maintenance Needed? This is the main question we receive from our customers.
At CFHC we recommend for all ac units to be serviced twice a year. This is what most ac manufactures suggest, and it helps keep your ac unit running efficiently.
Some of our ac repair calls are primarily due to lack of maintenance of the ac unit. Here are some of the things we have noticed when the air conditioner hasn’t been serviced in a while.
Your indoor unit has an evaporator coil that ensures air is flowing through your ductwork properly. If you have dirty coils, the air flow can be restricted and reduce efficiency of your unit.
Your outside HVAC unit also has a condenser coil. Its primary purpose is to eliminate hot air and if you can imagine, the dirtier the coil, the less efficient it will be.
Dirty AC Filter
Dirty air filters restrict air flow, and it can cause airborne particles to enter your home. CFHC suggests that you change out your air filters every 60 to 90 days in order to keep pollen, allergens and other health harming particles from entering your home.
There are many different things that can cause your HVAC unit to have leaks. Some of the common scenarios include a clogged drain hole, a damaged condenser pump or a blocked hose.
What is the role of a HVAC blower? The blower is a fan or often called a blower motor. It is responsible for circulating cool air throughout the home. A dirty blower requires more power to keep running which will then lead to higher energy bills.
