Air conditioners have parts that need regular maintenance: filters, coils and fins have to be in perfect condition for your system to work effectively and efficiently.
Failure to maintain damages the efficiency of the air conditioner and causes the use of energy to increase constantly.
Air conditioning coils
The air conditioner evaporator coil and condenser coil collect dirt. A clean filter prevents the evaporator coil from getting dirty, but will accumulate dirt over time. This dirt reduces air flow and isolates the coil, reducing its ability to absorb heat. To avoid this, check your evaporator coil every year and clean it whenever necessary.
The outer capacitor coils can also get very dirty. See if the condenser coil is clean and if the blades and fins on the unit are in good condition.
Ideally, there should be no dirt or debris near the condenser unit. The clothes dryer, the falling leaves and the lawn mower are sources of dirt. The area around the outdoor unit must be clean at least 2 feet (0.6 meters) and thus allow adequate air flow around the condenser.
It’s the easiest and perhaps most important maintenance task for your air conditioner (although many people overlook it).
A filter in good condition will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to replace or clean your filters on a routine basis.
A dirty filter blocks the air flow and reduces the efficiency of the system.
Replacing a dirty filter can reduce the energy consumption of your air conditioner by 5% to 15%.
If the flow is obstructed, the air passing through the filter can carry dirt directly to the evaporator coil, affecting its ability to absorb heat.
Some filters are reusable and others must be replaced.
They are available in a variety of types and efficiencies.
Clean or replace the filter or filters in your air conditioning system every month or two in the summer. Filters may need more frequent attention if the air conditioner is in constant use, is subject to dusty conditions, or if you have pets at home.
The fins fold easily and can block air flow. There is a tool called “fin comb” to straighten them and give them their original condition.
Occasionally, pass a stiff cable through the drain channels of the unit. Clogged drain channels prevent a unit from reducing humidity.
Hire a professional
When your air conditioner needs more than regular maintenance, hire a certified technician.
During service, the technician must:
- Check and seal leaks
- Check the correct amount of coolant and fill or remove, if necessary
- Test for refrigerant leaks (using a leak detector)
- Check thermostat
- Measure air flow through the outdoor unit
- Check the sequence of the electrical control; that the heating system and the cooling system do not work at the same time
- Inspect electrical terminals, clean, tighten connections, and coat if necessary
- Grease motors and belts
