These days, the use of air conditioning is not considered just a means of comfort, it has became a need for every person. The air conditioning filter is an important part of an AC and should be changed within 2 months or it gets filled with dirt and get polluted which can cause the damage in the AC. The second most important part of AC is the Compressor. It is used for low pressure, low volume gas making at high temperatures. The gas needed for AC compressor removes vapor from the evaporator to maintain a pressure to clean the compressor regularly for cool and refreshing air. The evaporator coil absorbs the heat. To provide cold air, replace the old evaporator coil for good stability. AC’s used to absorb the excess heat and supply cool air inside the house office. Sometimes there can be leakages for which an AC repairer is to be called. Sometimes it happens that an AC provides hot air in which case you need to clean the AC filter. If that does not work, you need to call the experts.
There are various kinds of AC’s in the market such as Split Ac, Ductable AC (Package AC), and central AC. In Split or window ac the maintenance is very easy. If you maintain it in a proper way and kept in open places like a window or a balcony, it will last longer. Cleaning the split AC is easier than cleaning the ductile and central AC. This is because they are designed to be a very compact system and it is also bigger in size. These AC’s are used in offices, banks, entertainment places, multiplexes, hospitals, auditoriums, conference halls etc. Since it is bigger in size, the coils are placed outside your home. This is called the condensing coil and consists of a compressor, coils and a fan. It is placed in a grill to protect people nearby from fan blades. Condensing coils are kept in a case to control two refrigerant lines that run into the house AC to the evaporation coil. The coil absorbs heat from the air, pulls it back side to the condenser coil and then releases cool air. The refrigerant inside the compressor is pumped through the evaporator coil which cools the air as the fan blows air through the coil.
The air conditioner’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. To avoid this problem, check your evaporator coil every year and clean it as necessary.
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. Cleaning the area around the coil, removing any debris, and trimming foliage back at least 2 feet (0.6 meters) allow for adequate airflow around the condenser.
An air conditioner’s filters, coils, and fins require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service. Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases.
