Have you ever been left wondering how to maintain the outdoor part of your HVAC unit? Our team at Surgi’s is here to give you all the tips you need to maintain your AC unit and keep it running for as long as possible.
Your Home’s AC System
Traditional AC systems combine indoor evaporator coils, outdoor condenser coils and ductwork to condition and deliver air throughout your home. Without routine maintenance, the elements in your cooling system can succumb to wear and tear, resulting in damage or breakdowns. There are some tasks you can do to your outdoor AC unit yourself to keep your system running well between tune-ups.
Other than checking the refrigerant levels – which must be done by a professional – homeowners can maintain most of their outside units by themselves. An annual cleaning, visual inspection and upkeep can help you maintain your outside AC unit. Not up to the task? Reach out to our team to schedule your thorough AC tune-up.
Essential AC Maintenance
When it comes to maintaining your outside AC unit, there’s a lot to consider. Some homeowners may wonder, “Can I spray the outside of my air conditioner?” Here at Surgi’s, we recommend that our customers receive professional AC tune-ups in the spring – before the summer heat. Between services, you can manage your outside unit almost entirely on your own.
Barring refrigerant leaks or electrical issues, homeowners can take care of many aspects of their AC unit themselves. Some safe DIY air conditioner maintenance tasks include:
- Clearing debris from around the unit
- Trimming plants and tree branches at least two feet away from the unit
- Once the unit is powered off, rinse fins with a garden hose from the inside out
- Rinse or wash the fan blades
- Condenser coils can be washed with a foaming AC coil cleaning product (always follow manufacturing directions)
- Level your unit if it has sunk into the ground over time
If doing your own AC maintenance isn’t for you, our team is ready to provide you with fast, dependable service. We’ll inspect, maintain and fine-tune your AC to keep it running like new.
