An important rule to remember when it comes to making sure your air conditioner works well, is to clean or change the air filter regularly. The purpose of the filter is to help clean the air coming into your home, it’s like a net catching all the tiny particles floating in the air. New or cleaned filters keep your AC happy and working nicely. The manufacturer or installer should suggest how often to service filters; however, if you live in a place with a lot of dirt and dust, you will want to clean the filters more often.
At The Boulevard Senior Living – St. Charles we understand the air conditioner needs good, quality air to do its job efficiently. Clean air filters allow the air conditioner to cool the community better, making both residents and staff feel more comfortable.
Air conditioners are also smart, they are like robots notifying if something is wrong and even what is wrong! Just like you need regular visits to the doctor for a check-up, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance. Having an HVAC professional check your air conditioner on a regular basis is the best way to keep it smart and keep you cool on those hot summer days.
The activities I do to maintain the HVAC system at home is wash out the outside condenser coil and change the air filter. At the community we wash out the RTUs, change the filters, spray off the condenser, and clean out the make-up air units. The filters in all the furnaces are also replaced, as are the v-tac filters. The benefit of maintaining the HVAC is having a properly running unit with low maintenance issues, cost savings, and energy efficiency.
Other than changing filters at home and the office, I will be cleaning duct work, coil cleaning, and checking the condensate lines, to keep them clear and free of clogging.
Changing air filters is one of the most important maintenance tasks completed to extend the efficiency and life of air conditioners. Checking and replacement of filters should be completed on a regular schedule. Filters are much cheaper than air conditioner units.
