Why do drain line’s clog?

A clogged drain line can be caused by sludge build up, rust, contaminants and even lizards stopping the flow of water attempting to exit outside the home. Recommended maintenance to keep the drain line clean, includes adding distilled vinegar in the drain line. We recommend 2 cups added directly to the drain line every 2 months to prevent build up.

Is Your Home Air Conditioner Ready for Summer?

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

With the cold season over and spring coming to an end, now’s the perfect time to get a head start on preparing your home for the oncoming warm weather. Last summer’s record-breaking temperatures sent for air conditioning repair through the roof, so it’s a smart move to take care of any maintenance your system might need before the mercury rises. If you haven’t used your home’s air conditioning since last summer, there are few items that you should add to your spring cleaning to-do list.

Turn on your unit.

Check that cool air is coming from your system’s vents. It’s a good idea to do this before you actually need to use your air-condition.

Preparing Your Air Conditioner for the Summer

When summer approaches, all heat-related risks become much higher. That heat-induced laziness becomes so much worse, insects swarm around the house, and the humidity can wear down your furniture. Over the winter, your air conditioning unit has probably spent time collecting dust and dirt while it’s been heating your home, so it’s more than time for a tune-up so that your air conditioner works properly after the switch from heating to cooling. A good recommendation is also to install a programmable thermostat if your air conditioning system didn’t already come with one, so you have control over the changing temperatures. The Basic Fixes There are little things that you can do yourself without professional air conditioning repair. The easiest is to change your air filter. While filters should be changed once every month or two, making sure you change it before the summer begins will prepare you to have a smooth-running system. You can also do a fair bit of cleaning, including cleaning the coils and fins. The coils can be sprayed down with a hose or cleaned with AC cleaner purchased online or from a department store. The fins can be scrubbed down with a little brush like a toothbrush or anything soft and small. In addition to cleaning the air conditioner itself, it’s a smart idea to clear the debris around the unit and trim back any shrubbery or foliage that might grow to interfere with the air conditioner efficiency. Lastly, you might want to check for leaks and level your AC if you find that it stands uneven on the ground or on the concrete slab it stands on.

Replace filters.

This ensures that the flow of air from your system is not obstructed. It’s recommended that filters be replaced every 2-3 months.

Clear external debris.

Organic matter such as leaves can build up around the outdoor components of your system, which can impede performance and efficiency.

Check line insulation.

Check the insulation on your unit’s coolant lines for wear and tear – cracking, peeling or fraying insulation needs to be professionally addressed. The Professional Fixes Do everything that you can do to check your air conditioning system out for the summer; it’s not only a good feeling to stay cool, but important for your health as well.

Why Preventative Maintenance On Air Conditioning Is Important

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020
You have probably been told that you should have air conditioner maintenance carried out at least once a year, right? Well, this is correct. It is vital that you schedule a regular air conditioner service. There are several different reasons why this is the case. Let’s take a look at them.

1. Increases air conditioner efficiency

The main reason why you will likely opt for regular air conditioner maintenance is that you can ensure that your unit is operating at peak efficiency. Remember, whenever the air conditioner is turned on, it is sucking in dust and grime. While some of this will be naturally expelled due to the way in which an air conditioner works, not all of it will. This dust will eventually start to clog up the system. This is an issue. The more dust you have clogging up your air conditioner, the harder it needs to work to cool down the air in your property. This means that it is going to take more energy. Since air conditioners are energy guzzlers at the best of times, you probably don’t want them consuming more energy than it needs to. Of course, if your unit is filthy on the inside, it is more likely to require air conditioner repair in the future too!

2. Helps to prevent breakdowns

It is likely that your air conditioner is going to be used a lot during the summer months. The last thing you want is for it to be breaking down. It happens a lot at this time of year, and you may struggle to be able to book in an air conditioner repair service within a decent amount of time. You could be days without an air conditioner! While you may not be able to prevent all summer breakdowns of your air conditioner, you will probably be able to prevent most of them. This is because most issues are caused by parts that have eventually given up working. Regular air conditioner maintenance can spot that these parts are failing in advance and replace them. This means that your air conditioner is unlikely to break down during the summer months!

3. Increase the lifespan of your air conditioner

Air conditioners are expensive. You probably do not want it to be replaced any time soon. Thankfully, most air conditioners are built to last an incredibly long time. However, they will only last this long if you give them the love and attention that they deserve. This means having a regular service carried out. If you do this, then any issues can be rectified quickly. If smaller issues are not rectified, then they become big issues, which means you will be more likely to have an air conditioner which doesn’t last its full quoted lifespan. Remember; you should always ensure that you hire a professional air conditioner service to carry out your air-con unit maintenance. While it is possible that you will be able to do some maintenance tasks on your own, you won’t be able to do everything. You really do need a helping hand who knows what they are doing. Somebody who can spot the problems with your air conditioner and fix them up quickly. Don’t worry! Quick Air is here to help you with all air conditioner problems. Just give us a call
