Prepare for the Heat
It's important this time of year to prepare your a/c units to run for around 2400 hours in the next 5 to 6 months. Whether you get a professional air conditioning tune up or tackle it yourself, here are a few items I suggest to save electricity improve comfort and extend the life of your systems.
Our full A/C maintenance check / tune up is $89 discounted until May 20th to $79. It includes checking refrigerant levels and amp draws and component testing and lubricating that
Is only recommended for professionals. But here are the important musts if you choose to DIY.
First – outside at the condenser, with the unit off, remove any and all debris and brush from around the unit at least 2 feet. Use water hose without a spray nozzle the first time and spray the fins starting at the top and working your way down. You should see dirty water coming out around the perimeter of the slab. Then, locate the end of the condensate drain if it terminates outside and make sure it is uninstructed.
Second – inside locate all return or intakes and change he filters and make sure they are not obstructed. If you look behind the filters and it is quite dirty inside you should ask why. It may be that air is coming from wall or attic cavities and should be sealed. Next find your condensate drain line and locate the tee or vent near the furnace and add a cup of bleach or condensate drain tablets. Both help keep algae growth and bugs from stopping up the line. If you already have a clog you need to have the line cleared before adding chemicals.
Lastly if you want to see if it is operating well turn it on and down 4-5 degrees elow inside temperature and let it run for at least 10 minutes and heck the closest supply duct's temperature. It should be 17-21 degrees cooler than the return or house temperature.
If during this process you see hear or smell anything unusual like water in secondary pans, vibrations, mold mildew, rust, squealing, motor straining . I would call and let us do the full maintenance. Normally $89 but often discounted to $79 pre-summer.
Good luck with all your spring cleaning!
