Air Conditioning Service

Does It Work?
Before breaking out the flip-flops, turn on the air conditioning, and check to see if any air at all is coming out of the vents. Check to see if any odd noises happen or if the unit takes a while to decide to turn on. Call your local air conditioning contractor if you notice anything wrong, and they will perform routine maintenance to get you back to flip-flop status.

Did You Check the Filter?
People don’t realize just how important that cardboard square actually is. A clean filter keeps the air filtered of allergens, dirt, dust and other pathogens to keep from irritating allergic family members or asthmatics. Dirty ones keep air from circulating and make the unit work harder. That means the power bill will increase, and you will probably notice a decline in the efficiency of your unit. Some filters can be vacuumed or washed, while others are the use-and-toss kind. Either way, the filter is very important to your air conditioner running efficiently.

Is the Unit Blocked?
Leaves, mown grass, debris blown by the wind and weeds love to snuggle up to your outdoor unit. They also block the flow of air meant to cool your house. Rake away and bag up any debris around the unit. Sometimes hosing off the unit will remove dirt inside the unit. If it doesn’t, use a wet cloth to wipe down the fan blades and coils. Home improvement stores and hardware stores sell commercially prepared cleansers for this purpose if wet cloths don’t do it.

Has the Unit Been Serviced?
You wouldn’t run your car into the ground without having a mechanic giving it regular service, would you? Why would you do that with your HVAC unit? A air conditioning service in Reston VA will turn on every time and deliver cool air all day. Right now would be a good time to get the pros to do maintenance on your unit. When summer comes, you can flip the switch without worrying that the unit won’t come on. If it seems ludicrous to check out the air conditioner in single-digit weather, it would be just as bad to wait until one hundred degree weather to find out there is a problem.
