Enjoying a beautiful, comfortable home all year isn’t all that hard provided the home is equipped with a quality comfort system. The most common choice is a simple HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system because this appliance will heat and cool the whole home and it is easily controlled from a convenient thermostat. Even better, many units can be equipped with remote control systems that give precise control. In fact, this is often the first change suggested by almost any AC Contractor in Colorado Springs. The reason for this is better control over the appliances using computer precision devices and to ensure better efficiency.
Another way to keep the appliance functioning properly is to follow the advice of an experienced AC Contractor in Colorado Springs and have the unit serviced regularly. This process should be done at least once per year for each aspect of the appliance. Most contractors, such as Parkey’s Heating & Air Conditioning, will recommend the AC gets serviced in the early spring while the furnace has maintenance in the late fall or early winter. The most important aspect of this task is cleaning. Removing the dust and debris that blocks airflow can greatly improve how well the appliance heats and cools.
Maintenance is especially critical for the air conditioner because moving heat out of the home usually creates condensation. Mix this moisture with the dust and debris that passes the filter system and it doesn’t take long to block the evaporator coil or blower. The first problem can be remedied by removing the evaporator coil and cleaning it in an acid bath. This should eliminate any buildup of gunk around the fins and coil tubes.
Cleaning the blower is a bit different. First, the contractor must access this fan. It is easy to tell if the blower is getting too much gunk buildup because the thin blades will be caked in a dry dirt. The problem that arises is the weight of the dirt and the reduced amount of air the fan can move. Removing the dirt usually requires a bit of an elbow grease and a stiff wire brush.
