Key Components for Air Conditioner Servicing

If you have experienced the heat of summer then you will understand the joy of air-conditioners. You will think it’s a cool breeze in a hot and sweaty situation. Good to know that this is not everything they do. For most organizations, air-conditioners have become a prerequisite for providing good working condition as well as for equipment. With them, a day becomes more tolerable. However, it can be quite a hassle when these handy tools stop working and worse still when you don’t know what to do. For anyone looking to understand how air-conditioners work in this is for you. When considering servicing your air-conditioners, there are a few important components that you must look at, the first being filters. This onboard components is intended for use encouraging any particles in the air including dust, smoke and even pollen grains. Therefore, it is very easy for these filters to get clogged and end up crippling your air conditioner altogether. Servicing these components means that it is only clean but also ensure that you perform a routine replacement. It’s worthwhile noting that when filters are not functioning, they obstruct normal airflow and can significantly increase the energy consumption of your air conditioner. You’ll want to learn more about this.

Additionally, clean filters also prevent any dirt from getting to the air-conditioners condenser and evaporator coils. This is something you’ll want to learn more about.

The other important component for servicing is the coils As mentioned before, is both an ever greater and condenser coil in an air conditioner. When the filters are dirty, the coils also tend to accumulate some significant dirt over time. All the dirt around the coil becomes an insulator and reduces the capacity of the coil to absorb heat. As a result, your air conditioner loses some of its cooling effect. As such, it is important to also take out these coils and clean them of any gathered dirt to increase its effectiveness. Another important part of an air conditioner is the coil fins. Without constant checking, this aluminum fins found in the evaporator and condenser coils can easily become problematic. These fins tend to bend easily and therefore constantly require to be straightened out. A fin comb does that for you. Truth is, it is does not do it perfectly but at the end of the day it straightens them out enough for there to be free airflow through the coil. Given all this information, you can tell the problematic area just in case your air conditioner stops working and are able to pinpoint which components exactly. This information put in a position where you can easily deduce the problem and explain it to a service company. Do check out these tuning tips for HVAC systems:
