The AC Spring Cleaning Checklist

Product Information

AC spring cleaningSpring is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about that favored yearly activity: spring cleaning. One thing that sneaks by most homeowners is AC spring cleaning. Your AC needs regular quarterly cleaning to maintain it in proper working order. But every year or so your HVAC unit needs a deep cleaning that can help it operate at optimal levels throughout the year. Modern Air & Refrigeration of Sarasota has a quick checklist for you to take into account this year for your AC spring cleaning.

Cleaning Your AC Condenser

Your HVAC condenser is a crucial but often overlooked component of your AC system. This importance makes it key that it be included in your AC spring cleaning plans. Check around your condenser for debris, shrubs or any other impediments that may have collected around the unit. As a good rule of thumb, nothing should obstruct your AC condenser in an 18-inch area. This helps to avoid things from getting caught in the fan or blocking the air intake to the condenser.

AC Spring Cleaning Your Evaporator Coils

The evaporator piece of your air conditioner is another overlooked component of your AC’s operation. Its function is to circulate the air in your home, taking warm air out and replacing it with cooler air. Evaporator coils also serve the additional function of dehumidifying your home. Both these functions add up to the same thing; constant use. This makes it a critical part of your AC spring cleaning. Unfortunately, the evaporate coils are a little more complicated to clean than the condenser. We recommend getting in touch with a local Sarasota HVAC professional to take a look at your coils in a safe manner.
