Summer time is approaching….
Summer heat is going to be here soon…so before you start tinkering with your cooling system it’s important to understand that your air conditioner is a tough piece of equipment. You should leave some of the more mysterious parts to the professionals. You can however, check your filters once a month. A clogged filter restricts airflow, allowing the cooling coil to ice up, and ultimately causing your system to shut down. Keep in mind, if you use the filter that reduces allergens they will clog up faster! Also, make sure the exterior condenser is free of shrubs and debris. A two foot clearance is needed for proper air flow. A condenser fan has spent all of last summer working hard to keep you cool. Schedule a yearly maintenance early to prevent a long wait. You may even get in on an Early Bird Special! Even the most reliable unit needs routine maintenance.
