Furnace and AC Maintenance for the Cooling Season • Clear the area around the outside condenser coil... Check the outside condenser coil regularly to ensure it’s clean and not blocked with leaves, pollen, grass, dirt, etc. Have your air conditioner professionally cleaned if the outside coil is blocked. A routine air conditioner maintenance performed by your air conditioning contractor should include inspection and cleaning ( if necessary) of the outside condenser coil, inside evaporator coil, and inside fan assembly, filter replacement, inspecting all other components, and checking that the system is operating correctly. • Check the condensate drain tube... During the summer, water condenses on the cooling coils as they dehumidify the air. The water collects in a tray below the coils and flows out through a condensate tube. Make sure the tube is not clogged, or the hose kinked, and that it drains to a convenient floor drain. • Keep the furnace filter clean... A clogged furnace filter will reduce the air flow across the inside cooling coil. The reduced air flow will cause your air conditioner to operate inefficiently and not work properly. Check the filter at least once a month, and clean or replace as needed. Never run your air conditioner without a furnace filter. • Check your registers and ducts... Vacuum your supply- air registers and return- air ducts whenever you notice dust beginning to collect. Once a year, it’s a good idea to vacuum inside the ducts as far as you can reach. • Adjust your thermostat... In summer, set your thermostat to a comfortable level, and when you are not home, turn the temperature up a few degrees, 1- 3° C or 2- 5 ° F. Turning the temperature up will limit the amount of time the air conditioning system comes on. During operation of your air conditioner, keep all windows closed and draperies drawn on windows facing the sun. • Buying a new air conditioner... If replacing or buying new, look for an ENERGY STAR ® label and check the SEER ( seasonal energy efficiency ratio). Central units should have a minimum SEER of 13; most window units should have a minimum EER of 9.7. An ENERGY STAR labeled central air conditioner with a minimum SEER of 14.5 will save $ 5-$ 10/ year compared to a base model unit with a SEER rating of 13 for the average home in Manitoba. Here are some key steps you can take to ready your furnace and central air conditioner for the cooling season to get the most out of your air conditioner.
