It is important to have your air conditioning and heating equipment inspected. One of the items covered in the air conditioning check is to check the Freon charge. If an air conditioning system is low on Freon, it will struggle to cool the house and will run excessively. This will lead to high electricity bills and needless wear and tear on the equipment. With the high price of replacing the air conditioning system, taking care of the equipment is an wise, economical move. Additionally if your equipment is low on Freon®, the coils can freeze up. This can cause pressure on the metal tubing and lead to a leak. When the ice on the coil melts it can lead to a water problem. The could occur is the equipment is not installed properly or if the drain is stopped up.
Keeping the air conditioner and heating equipment maintained is essential to it’s longevity. Keeping the coils clean is an absolute must. The inside coil can be kept clean by changing the air filter regularly. The outside coil should be cleaned using a water hose. Ask your technician to show you how to properly wash the outside coil. It must be done correctly or damage can occur. The repair for a damaged coil is expensive and the result may even lead to a new coil being installed.
