Keeping your air conditioner clean is vital if you want it to energy efficient. The outdoor unit requires yearly attention, this includes (1) Washing the grill surface to keep it free from debris, (2) checking the refrigerant levels for proper charge. (3) Checking the compressor, contactor, capacitor and fan. (4) Filter change is also very important
If you live in an area where the trees yearly leave air borne debris this may require you clean the outdoor unit more than once a year. Debris buildup on the outdoor unit will shorten the life of the compressor due to heat build up in the refrigerant circuit.
Refrigerant charge is vital because this will allow the unit to run at it optimum performance, result will be energy savings which equates to money savings.
Changing the filter regularly will ensure your equipment is moving the correct amount of air across the indoor coil. A dirty filter makes the blower work harder using more energy and it left to long will create ice buildup on the indoor coil making it an inefficient system or if left unattended to it can turn into a block of ice.
Filter choices require different change intervals. A pleated filter 1 inch wide will need to changed at the least once a month due to there ability to trap more dirt. Fiberglass filters are least efficient of them all and may only need to be changed every other month. High efficiency filters that are wider work best because they have more surface area and are designed for less frequent change periods.
