The Importance of Cleaning Coils, Changing Filters, and Scheduling a Tune-Up

As the flowers bloom and warmer winds blow through El Centro, CA, it's the ideal time to focus on your home's spring cleaning. Living in a desert climate can be demanding, especially on your AC, so routine maintenance is crucial, not only for the system’s efficiency but also for your comfort. It's important not to forget your cooling system when you are doing your spring cleaning this season. In this article, the comfort pros at Arctic Air will explore why cleaning coils, changing filters, and scheduling a professional tune-up are essential steps to your spring clean routine!

Clean Coils

Clean Coils Mean Optimal Cooling Capability

The coils in your HVAC system play a critical role in the heat exchange process of your air conditioning. Over time, dirt, dust, and other airborne particles accumulate on the coils. The buildup acts like an insulator, reducing the system’s ability to cool your home effectively. Your unit is therefore forced to work harder which increases its energy consumption and leads to higher utility bills and premature wear. Spring cleaning these coils will restore efficiency and enhance the longevity of your system.

Air Filter Changed

Breathe Easy And Enjoy The Cool Air

Replacing your air filter is a quick maintenance task that has long-term benefits. Clean filters improve indoor air quality by trapping dust, pollen, and other allergens, which is especially important in areas like El Centro where the air can be filled with fine desert particles. Moreover, fresh filters prevent excessive dust from accumulating within the HVAC unit itself. Less dirt and dust in the system helps ward off potential damage and avoids unnecessary repairs. We recommend checking your filters monthly and replacing them at least every three months, or more often if you have pets or suffer from allergies.

Schedule Tune-Up

Preventative Care Means Peace Of Mind

An annual tune-up by a professional service technician from Arctic Air can significantly extend the life of your HVAC system. During a tune-up, our technicians thoroughly inspect your unit, including belts, bearings, motors, and electrical switches. We also calibrate the thermostat and check the refrigerant levels to ensure your system operates as efficiently as possible. Regular tune-ups can catch issues before they turn into costly problems, ensuring your system is ready to handle the summer heat without a hitch.

Inspect Ductwork

No Leaks Means More Comfort

Your home's ductwork is an integral part of your air conditioner's cooling ability. Leaky or poorly insulated ducts can significantly degrade system efficiency, resulting in lost air and increased energy costs. This spring, consider having your ducts inspected by our Arctic Air professionals to ensure there are no leaks, blocks, or sections that need repair or sealing.
