summer is almost over, and it is an excellent time to start packing away our cooling equipment, but what is the best way? Also, can homeowners do without the help of a cooling specialist? When I got my HVAC equipment, I wondered the same thing.
- My first cooling product was a mini split air conditioner; I did not think to take the proper measures when summer was over.
Because some of the splits are outside, the air filters were affected by climate and elements. By the time summer came around, the air conditioner was not working. The cooling tech was shocked at the system’s state and was sure it would not help with indoor comfort even if they managed to revive it, an impossible idea. Multiple crucial components were covered in rust, and some were even cracked. The cooling representative helped install the replacement and made sure to instill in my knowledge more about air conditioning. According to the cooling industry, quality air conditioners should be stored inside the house in the attic or basement. It is also wise to clean the pan and condenser coils but not with high-pressure water as it might bend the condenser coil’s wispy fins. The technician recommends using warm water and detergent to remove dust and lint from the condensation pan. Anyone can do this process, but most cooling corporations will send over a qualified professional in case of any issue. They recommend air conditioning maintenance before storing the equipment to avoid the problem spreading or growing. These tips have saved me a lot on air conditioning repair costs.
