Summer is almost over, and it is an excellent time to start packing away our cooling equipment, however what is the best way? Also, can homeowners do without the help of a cooling specialist? When I got our Heating and A/C equipment, I wondered the same thing.
My first cooling product was a mini split a/c system, and I did not know to take the respected measures when summer was over.
Because some of the splits are outside, the air filters were affected by weather conditions and elements. By the time summer came around, the a/c system was not working anymore. The cooling tech was shocked at the system’s state and was sure it would not help with indoor comfort, even if they managed to revive it, which was an impossible idea. Multiple pressing components were covered in rust, and some were even cracked. The cooling representative helped install the replacement and made sure to give us some more info about a/c. According to the cooling industry, quality a/c systems should be stored inside the home in the attic or basement. It is also wise to wipe the pan and condenser coils, however not with high-pressure water as it might bend the condenser coil’s wispy fins. The corporation recommends using moderate water and detergent to disconnect dust and lint from the condensation pan. Anyone can do this process, however most cooling corporations will send over a qualified professional in case of any issue. They recommend a/c service before storing the component to avoid the problem spreading or growing. These tips have saved me a lot on a/c service costs.
