Keep Your AC Unit Running Efficiently, Lint Free
Have you ever noticed a difference in your home with reduced airflow, overheating, or loss of efficiency? If so, head outdoors to check on your AC unit to see if you have anything obstructing the condenser coil. Recently during a routine maintenance call we found this AC unit next to a dryer vent with a good amount of lint covering the condenser coils. If too much lint continues to build up, it may cause your coil or compressor to fail, requiring an expensive replacement.
Here are a few cool tips to help keep your condenser safe from lint buildup:
• Consider a dryer vent cap to help direct airflow away from the AC unit
• Reroute the dryer vent if it is directly facing or near the AC unit
• Schedule more regular maintenance.
