If you have been thinking about cleaning or servicing your AC unit yourself, there is probably a bit more to it than you thought. High-powered electrical equipment can be dangerous and can cause severe electrical shock if you are unsure or unfamiliar with its mechanics and how to properly inspect and clean the equipment. It’s always best to contact a professional air conditioning repair service to stay on the safe side.
Many things are easily maintained through routine maintenance and by scheduling air conditioning service calls that will keep your unit operating at peak performance. Things as simple as cleaning your AC condenser coils and evaporator coils can substantially cut down on air conditioning repair. This can also add longevity to your cooling system and will help to cut down on high energy costs due to the removal of built-up grime, dust and debris that collect in the coils over the years.
Many people are often confused about when it’s time to either repair or replace their air conditioning unit. Some units will make noises when they first start up after sitting idle over the long winter months. Sometimes debris can collect inside the unit if it sat uncovered and was exposed to the elements for several months. Small twigs, acorns, tree bark, and other items can get caught in the fan blades. This can cause the unit to sound as if it needs replaced when you first turn it back on. Any number of things can cause your unit to make unusual sounds.
