AC Maintenance in Noblesville, Fishers & Westfield, IN and the Surrounding Areas
For your air conditioner to function effectively and efficiently over its lifetime, its coils, filters, and fans should be regularly serviced. Failing to carry out servicing can lead to a steady decline in the performance of the AC as its energy use increases. Dutch Heating and Cooling provides AC Maintenance in Noblesville, Fishers & Westfield, IN and Surrounding Areas to help homeowners improve the efficiency of their units.
Replacing Air Conditioner Filters
One of the most important AC maintenance tasks that help to keep the AC running efficiently is replacing or cleaning the filters. When the filters are dirty or clogged, normal airflow is blocked and this reduces efficiency. When air cannot flow in the unit normally, dirt may build up at the evaporator coil and impair the AC’s capacity to absorb heat. You should contact a qualified technician to replace a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one. Replacing the filters regularly can help to lower your unit’s energy consumption by between 5% and 15%.
Replacing Air Conditioner Coils
Over years of service, the evaporator and condenser coils will collect dirt. If the unit’s filters are cleaned or replaced regularly, the evaporator coil will not soil quickly. Still, dirt will gather on it over time. The dirt blocks airflow and forms an insulation layer on the coil, reducing its efficiency in absorbing heat. To avoid this problem, an AC repair company should check the evaporator coil annually and clean it as necessary.
The aluminum fins on the condenser and evaporator coils can bend easily and block air from flowing through. A professional AC repair company will use a “fin comb” to comb the fins back to their original position. Dutch Heating and Cooling is the best for the job!
