Maintenance Rids Your AC of Harmful Dirt Buildup
Spring is here. It’s Texas. Put those two things together and you’ve got a recipe for months of hot, triple-digit temps ahead. With this in mind, you’ll be relying on your home’s AC unit a great deal to cool your family down when the weather outside is unbearable.
Your AC unit may seem like it’s ready for action, but a hidden problem may be lurking just beneath the surface. We’re talking about dirt buildup, the greatest contributor to air conditioning failure.
How Dirt Affects Your AC
When your AC system sits idle during the colder winter months, it is susceptible to dust and debris gathering on components within the inner workings. When dirt builds up in your air conditioner, the unit will not cool your home efficiently, raising your energy bills while reducing its operating life. Your system will need to work harder to keep you cool. This extra work can cause components to prematurely break down, even leading to total cooling system failure, which you definitely don’t want during the Texas heat!
Two vital components, the blower and the condenser coils, can be especially negatively affected by dirt buildup. Trouble with the condenser coils can even result in compressor breakdown, which will mean a costly repair bill for you.
