3 Tips On How To Maintain Your Air Conditioner
Maintain Your Air Conditioner
Air conditioners have the impeccable ability to enhance the ventilation in a room. However, the components more often than likely become congested if not properly maintained.
It should be noted that air conditioners have separate components which include the condenser unit, located outside the house on a concrete slab and the evaporator coil above the furnace.
The different components include compressors, coolant lines, cold air return duct, blower, filter, evaporator drain lines, condenser unit, condenser coil, fan, condenser unit, evaporator coil and plenum.
Most central air conditioners are connected to a home’s forced-air distribution system. Thus, the same motor, blower and duct work used for heating are used to distribute cool air from the air conditioning system.
Here are 3 definitive tips on how to maintain your air conditioner:
1 – Check for the correct amount of refrigerant:
By testing for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector, operators can capture any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally releasing it into the atmosphere.
2 – Measure the airflow through the evaporator coil:
Verify the correct electric control sequence and make sure that the heating system and cooling system is working. Trouble shooting issues cannot operate simultaneously, so the operator should be inspected on a thorough basis.
3 – Inspect the electric terminals, clean and tighten connections:
By applying a non-conductive coating will ensure that the air conditioner is maintained for an extensive period of time. Additional aspects to consider includes oil motors, check belts for tightness and wear and tear.
