Importance of Replacing Your AC Filter
It’s a good idea to replace your air conditioning filters every so often as they can become clogged over time.
When you have a clogged AC filter, this can cause issues with your cooling system resulting in:
- Higher energy bills
- Long-term AC issues
- Poor air quality
It is possible to change your AC filter yourself, but many homeowners defer to the professionals and let their local AC experts handle it. If you are typically handy around the house and you know where the filter is located and how to change it with your system, then DIY filter replacement is perfectly safe. However, if you’re unsure how to change your air conditioning filter, one of the trained pros at Dial One Sonshine can assist you.
Air Handler Services in Orange County
The air handler is part of your AC system that houses several different components that are integral to efficient AC operation. The air handler resembles a plain metal box but inside you’ll find blowers, sound attenuators, dampers, air filters, and fans. The air handler is connected to the ductwork in your home and helps with air circulation.
Air handlers, like any other part of your heating and cooling system, can develop problems that require professional attention. The air that moves through the air handler must be clean, so if you have dirty air filters, it will put a strain on the system. The motor will have to work harder and may even burn out over time.
Other issues that can affect air handler performance include:
- Dirty or damaged coils
- Algae in the condenser drain line
- Mold growth in the system
- Damaged sensors and fans
- Faulty control boards and capacitors
Regular AC maintenance is the best way to keep your air handler in tip-top shape. At Dial One Sonshine, we can make sure your air handler stays clean and efficient with our maintenance services, so you won’t have to worry about AC breakdowns.
Evaporator Coil Cleaning & Repair
The evaporator coil is part of the indoor unit of your AC system. It helps transfer heat from your home to the outside, and it cools the air to provide the cooling effect you want. Without the evaporator coil, your AC wouldn’t be able to work as it is supposed to.
You can tell there’s a problem with the evaporator coil when:
- There is no chilled air coming from the vents
- You can see visible refrigerant leaking
- Unexplained hot air is emitting from your AC
- You notice other issues with cooling
The evaporator coil is one part of your AC system that we usually clean during regular maintenance visits, but some homeowners choose to perform this task on their own. DIY evaporator coil cleaning is possible, but it is also possible to damage other parts of your AC in the process, so you must know what you are doing. For the most comprehensive cleaning job, it makes sense to schedule routine maintenance once per year and let our professionals keep your AC system running smoothly.
