Why Regular Maintenance on HVAC Units is Needed


routine maintenance

Air conditioners have filters, coils, and fins that need routine maintenance for the HVAC unit to function at it’s most efficient through the years. If the unit runs without proper routine maintenance, it can eventually lead to the unit performing less and less but also causing the energy bill to increase. Cagle Service offers a VIP Priority Maintenance Membership program to help keep the HVAC unit running as smooth as possible.

Routine Maintenance – Air Filters

The most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to routinely replace or clean its filters. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency significantly. For example, neglecting to clean or replace an air filter in a furnace can be the culprit of the furnace not blowing hot air in the winter. None of us want to experience that!

Some types of filters are reusable; others must be replaced. They are available in a variety of types and efficiencies. Clean or replace your air conditioning system’s filter or filters every month or two during the cooling season. Filters may need more frequent attention if the air conditioner is in constant use, is subjected to dusty conditions, or you have fur-bearing pets in the house.

Routine Maintenance – Evaporator Coils

The ac unit’s evaporator coil and condenser coil collect dirt over their months and years of service. A clean filter prevents the evaporator coil from soiling quickly. In time, however, the evaporator coil will still collect dirt. This dirt reduces airflow and insulates the coil, reducing its ability to absorb heat.

Outdoor condenser coils can also become very dirty if the outdoor environment is dusty or if there is foliage nearby. You can easily see the condenser coil and notice if dirt is collecting on its fins. You should minimize dirt and debris near the condenser unit. Your dryer vents, falling leaves, and lawn mower are all potential sources of dirt and debris.
