Maintaining Your Air Conditioner

Maintaining your air conditioner is pertinent for good performance.  Your outside air conditioner is called the condenser.  The outside unit requires care, cleaning, and maintenance.  The outside condenser coil can become very dirty from the outdoor environment from dust and foliage nearby.  You should keep debris cleaned and removed and trim any foliage near or around the unit. You can easily see the condenser coil and notice if dirt and debris are collecting on its fins.  Your dryer vent, falling leaves, and the lawn mower are all potential sources of the dirt that can build up in the condenser unit.

The condenser fins on the condenser coils are easily bent and can block air flow through the coil.  Air conditioner suppliers sell a tool called a “fin comb” that will comb these fins back into its nearly original conditional.  When your air conditioner needs more than regular maintenance, hire a professional service technician.  A well-trained technician will find and repair problems with your air conditioner system.  Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in your air conditioners performance while energy use increases.   Call us today to get your air conditioner serviced for the season: 785-341-4193.  De Hart Plumbing Heating and Cooling, serving Maintaining Your Air ConditionerManhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas, Topeka Kansas and some surrounding areas.
