An air conditioner’s filters, fins, and coils require frequent maintenance for them to work properly and efficiently during its years of operation. Ignoring required maintenance assures a decline in air conditioning performance while energy usage progressively increases. 

Parts That Need Regular Maintenance:

This article aims to assist you in various ways you can do AC maintenance in Palm Coast, FL, to help enhance your comfort and the efficiency of your air conditioner.

  • Air Conditioner Filters

The most crucial maintenance activity that will maintain the effectiveness of your air conditioner is to periodically replace or clean its filters. Clogged, filthy filters restrict natural airflow and lower the system’s efficiency significantly. With normal airflow blocked, air that escapes the filter may transport dirt directly into the evaporator coil and damage the coil’s heat-absorbing ability.

Filters may require more regular cleaning if the air conditioner is in constant use, is subjected to dusty circumstances, or you have pets in the house.

  • AC Coils

The air conditioner’s condenser coil and evaporator coil accumulate dirt throughout their months and years of use. A fresh and clean filter limits the evaporator coil from degrading quickly. Eventually, the evaporator coil will still collect dirt. This dirt restricts airflow and wraps the coil, decreasing its ability to absorb heat. To avoid this problem, inspect your evaporator coil every year and clean it as necessary.

  • Coil Fins

The metal fins on the evaporator and condenser coils are easily bent and can restrict airflow across the coil. Air conditioning wholesalers provide a product called a “fin comb” that will comb these fins back into virtually their original shape.

  • Window Seals

For each winter season, examine the seal between the air conditioner and the window frame to check if it makes contact with the unit’s metal casing. Moisture can weaken this barrier, enabling cold air to escape from your residence.

Hiring A Professional

When you are in dire need of air conditioning repair in Ormond Beach, FL, call a professional service expert. A well-trained expert will discover and correct issues with your air conditioning system.

The technician should:

  • Find any refrigerant that is evacuated from the system instead of unlawfully releasing it into the atmosphere
  • Check for and seal duct leaks in central systems 
  • Measure airflow across the evaporator coil 
  • Inspect belts and oil motors for tightness and check the accuracy of the thermostat.
