Cleaning your AC unit increases efficiency



We have survived the sweltering hot summer months and we are now officially in the cool rainy season. This may be the wet season but it comes with the cool breeze, with this we can take advantage of the cold weather, thus less consumption of electricity for ACs and time for our ACs to be checked and cleaned.


Dave Moody, HVAC pro from Service Experts advised that “an AC needs regular attention to be sure it is operating at the highest efficiency”. One way to ensure efficiency of your AC unit is to clean out filters or better yet replace if needed. If done the user will be able to avoid the hassles of spending too much on repair/ services or even the replacement of the unit itself.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE), replacing a dirty or clogged filter with a clean one may decrease the air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%. Furthermore, cleaning the AC’s filter will also be beneficial for the unit’s so-called evaporator coil and condenser which may collect dirt too when the filter is intermittently cleansed. So cleaning the evaporator coil greatly helps keep the AC unit cool if those are clogged after accumulating so much dust out of months and months of use thus it will reduce airflow and envelope the coil to such a degree that the ability to absorb heat shall decrease.

Conceding that the evaporator coil and condenser is habitually checked and cleaned, in effect can avoid the possibility of a damaged AC unit. Hence, it is eminently recommended to check the inside of the unit. Likewise, it is emphasized that the drain channels, where the water from the AC unit passes, are cleared away and monitored as well to circumvent clogged flow.

Remember, draining is a favorable practice to do constantly to ensure that the channels are good to go. Cleaning and maintaining air conditioners are a bit troublesome as a task but it has its benefits. Sometimes hiring a professional help is necessary to achieve the task, guaranteed of the best possible service for your AC unit/s.
