San Diego Living: Don’t Leave Out Your A/C From Spring Cleaning
Don’t Forget the Most Important Spring Cleaning Item—Your Air Conditioner!
As winter departs, and spring begins to pass us by, we’re going to start using the air conditioner again: say hello to hot summer days, air quality worries, and higher utility bills! As you do your spring cleaning, have you thought of cleaning the condenser coils and air conditioning unit? Have you considered the pros and cons of doing so and not doing so? Here are a few thoughts for consideration:
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) indicates that you should clean and disinfect your cooling system quarterly – or at the very least twice a year if you don’t use the unit year round. The best time to clean your system is at the beginning of the cooling season and then after you shut it down in the fall—spring cleaning. banking . You may ask, “What’s the point?”
The Benefits of an A/C Tune0Up
First, the system operates more efficiently so that you save money and energy.
Second, a more efficient unit is going to last longer so you don’t have to pay to get it replaced, simply because it aged over the winter.
Third, the system will more effectively and efficiently keep the home comfortable (that’s reason enough)!
What should be included in this spring cleaning? A good maintenance and clean up service should include cleaning the coils, removing sediment and build up, straightening the fins, checking the refrigerant (which is like air in your tires—it changes over time), and changing the filter to name a few.
