Maintaining a Healthy Air Conditioning Unit

With Spring beginning and Summer fast approaching, that means we will be facing some extra hot days ahead. And it is during this time that many a person’s air-conditioner decides to take a nose dive, and stop working. That is apparently because of the added stress the unit is being put through, as it battles the elements to keep you cool and happy. That being said, all is not lost, as you can help ensure your unit does not stop working. Here are some AC maintenance tips to help you keep your unit running happy and healthy.

Outdoor a/c unit

Clean and replace filters

It is pretty obvious, but you need to make sure you keep up with cleaning and replacing your air filters. You should clean or replace your furnace or air-handler filters twice a year or whenever they begin to look clogged with dust. If you do not, air flow will be restricted, reducing efficiency, and you will recirculate dirt into your home.

Clean the Coils

The coils to your A/C are usually located in the main unit outside. This means that they are susceptible to the elements, and all of the rigors that come with them. Your coils should be cleaned around once to twice a year. We would recommend that you call an air-conditioning specialist to come out and clean it, as it involves removing protective parts from the unit.

Clear out Debris

Just as stated, the unit is usually located outdoors; this means loose debris can collect around it. Scoop leaves and debris out of the base of the condenser and, if it has a drain, ensure that the drain is clear. Clean the fan blades with a vacuum and rag. And make sure to cut away and remove any weeds or vines that may obstruct airflow through the condenser unit.

Check the Coolant Lines

Test It

Allow the unit to dry thoroughly and then turn the power to the condenser back on by doing the following: First, turn the thermostat in your home to OFF. Then turn on the power at both the disconnect box and at the main panel. Last, switch the thermostat to COOL.

Why you should have an Air Purifier in your Home

When it comes to our homes and indoor air quality, we will do whatever it takes to have a sense of comfort in it. Whether that is the furniture we have, the color of the paint on the walls, even down to the temperature we keep our house. But one thing that often overlooked is the state of the home’s atmosphere, or rather, the purity of the air in the house. Well here are some reasons as to why you should stop overlooking this, and consider getting an air purifier for your home.

Debris and Dander

Home interior climate controlThe first thing to take into consideration is the fact that your household air is isolated, in that the air you are breathing today may be the same as a month ago. Now, as is the case with all home air conditioning units, there is an air filter already in place. This is not the most complex piece of equipment, as it usually takes the form of a very original filter. It can isolate the larger debris that would otherwise make their way through your system, but it does not stop the smaller stuff. This means all of the dust, dirt, and dander that you, or a pet, bring in or shed off will stay in your house’s air, ready to be inhaled at a later date. The air purifier will help filter and clean your air in a way your traditional filter just cannot.

Germs

Just as I stated about debris in the home air, the same said about the germs living in your air. This holds especially true if you have someone sick in your house. The germs, bacteria, etc. that they have infecting them will not properly filter out of your breathing air. This means you will be sharing contaminated air with them.

Smell

Woman hit with bad smellThe smell of your house directly relates to the microbes floating around it. If your garbage can have something in it that stinks, sooner or later, your entire home will start to smell as well. This also holds true with the age of the air in the house. As most of us have experienced being in an enclosure with old, stale air. The purifier can help remove these unwanted odors from the home environment, making for a more comfortable environment.
