To stay cool and dry all the hot season you need to have an air conditioner system, but the maintenance costs can really add up, which is a problem for many people who live in hot climates. This is why a lot of us prefer to skip the professional maintenance and DIY. Is it a good idea?
To answer this question, you need to be qualified in basic routine maintenance and repair. Air conditioners have capacitors built into them. Capacitors hold an electrical charge even when no longer connected to an electrical source. The professionals at Brian’s Heating and Cooling take years of schooling and experience on how to deal with the dangers of AC repair.
Cleaning and oiling
AC units have moving parts that need oiled regularly. Another thing that is absolutely vital is the air flow within the system. If the unit becomes clogged from dust, it will not work efficiently and over time can cause permanent damage leading to ac replacement.
The most important part in cleaning an AC is the filter cleansing process. The filters are in the areas where the air is being cleaned before it reaches us. In old and dirty filters there are bacteria and spores which can develop into allergies and other health problems if the filter is not cleaned or changed. Also, without proper airflow, the unit has to work harder causing it to freeze up and even burn up the motor leading to ac replacement. To prevent this from happening, just take it off, wash it with soap and water, and then allow it to dry completely before installing it back in the AC. Some units have disposable filters. If you’re not sure what your AC unit has contact Brian’s Heating and Cooling to get the correct information.
All these tasks should be performed by someone who is trained and certified in HVAC systems. Let the professionals at Brian’s Heating and Cooling keep you safe and comfortable!
