Regularly cleaning your condenser coil with a light rinse from your water hose will keep your coils clean, reducing run times and energy costs. Your systems condenser coil may become restricted with debris & soil. Assure the system is off, the power is turned off at the disconnect/breaker, and avoid spraying near the electrical components cabinet. After rinsing, allow the system to dry before returning to service. Follow all manufacturer safety precautions.
Maintaining your systems air filter will not only improve the air quality of your home or business, but also increases efficiency by reducing restriction. A heavily soiled air filter may also cause the evaporator coil to become restricted. Not all air filters are equal, so be sure to research what filter best suits your preferences or call us with any questions you may have. We are always willing to help!
The condenser fan draws in air from outside, through the condenser coil and finally up and out of the top via the fan. When your condenser is operating while mowing, dirt and grass clippings may become lodged in the coil causing restriction. Turning your system off while mowing will keep the coil free of soil and run more efficiently
Your condensate drain lines flow water from the evaporator coil to your homes sewer pipes and occasional route to the outside. These drains may become restricted due to buildup in the pipe. Adding drain cleaner or even bleach periodically may keep this from occurring, saving you from costly repairs. Access to drain line is typically near the evaporator coil via a "T" coupling. Be sure the system is not operating when performing this task and follow manufacturer safety precautions.
