Keep Cool All Summer Long with Help from Tudi
June 12, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle NewsJune 12, 2015 - As we begin to head into the dog days of summer, keeping cool in the hot summer sun is the first thing on many homeowners' minds. Staying cool and comfortable in the home shouldn't come with a hefty cost. Get your home air conditioning unit prepped to handle the hot summer months ahead with help from the Pittsburgh HVAC Professionals at Tudi Mechanical Systems.
When it comes to your home air conditioning system, a little bit of spring cleaning can go a long way in extending the life of your unit and significantly lower your home cooling costs. The extra little bit of TLC you provide to your home's A/C will help keep you cool and comfortable all summer long without breaking the bank.
Start your springtime cleaning on your home's Air Conditioning by ensuring that the unit is entirely powered down. Once all power coming into the unit is turned off, remove the outer case of the outdoor and clear out any debris from the condenser fins. Tudi's team of Pittsburgh HVAC Professionals recommend using a handheld mini vacuum with a soft bristle attachment to ensure you give your unit the deep cleaning it deserves.
Next, unscrew the top of the unit to make sure that none of the electrical wires or connections have been stretched. If everything looks to be in working order, turn the unit back on and wait 10 minutes for strange noises or signs of damage. Make sure the pipes in the unit are at the proper temperature as well. To avoid damaging the compressor, never clean the unit in outdoor temperatures lower than 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
When cleaning the indoor unit, the first step is to ensure that all power sources coming to the unit are switched off. Next, check the filter for dirt, and replace if needed to help improve the efficiency of your unit. While inspecting the unit, make sure to clear away any debris and lubricate moving parts with electric motor oil.
Secondly, make it a point to check the condensation drain for any clogs and remove any flexible tubes for a proper cleaning. Don't forget to have the evaporator coil and blower component professionally cleaned and inspected to make sure your unit is in working order.
