It is a very important factor in maintaining the work ability of your unit. If your unit is working well then you know your home is being cooled at top efficiency. So now that the warm temperatures are here your air conditioner is top on mind.
The best way to ensure your unit is cleaned properly is to hire a professional. A certified air conditioning technician will have your equipment cleaned in your unit to get it ready for summer. To schedule a checkup, contact your local HVAC provider and let them you know are ready for your unit to be cleaned.
Now you may be wondering what they are going to do to clean my air conditioning unit. The process is pretty simple but needs the tools and knowledge of a certified technician. Your unit will be checked inside and out and many portions of the unit will be attended to during the cleaning process.
On the inside of your home, the technician will check your unit. The parts of your unit on the inside need to be cleaned of dust and particles to make sure they are running properly. Many times your return can fill with dust and dirt, causing your air filters to remain dirty despite your best efforts.
The technician will then head outside and begin cleaning your outdoor unit. Drainage pans will need to be cleaned and cleared as well as coils. These problems can lead to major damage which will cost you way more money than the price of regularly scheduled maintenance.
If you have a hard time remembering, it might be a good idea to sign up for a maintenance plan. This way, the air conditioning technician will contact you when it is time for service to take place. Then you will be able to schedule a time that works for you and have your unit ready for the hot summer months ahead.
