The rain is clearing up and we are beginning to see more sun here in Orange County! As you begin to enjoy the sunny, spring weather, think about checking your home’s exterior HVAC unit for any damages caused by the recent weather swings. It is important for homeowners to check and clean their outdoor units to ensure they are functioning properly before the summer heat hits.
Many homeowners don’t realize that by properly maintaining your HVAC system, you can save money on energy AND extend the unit’s lifespan. The first step to cleaning your exterior unit is to turn off the electrical power to prevent injury from moving parts. Once the power is shut off, it is time to remove the debris, rinse inner and outer fins with a garden hose, straighten any noticeably curved fins (as this prevents proper air-flow), clean area around the unit and confirm your unit is level. If you notice any issues or if you are unfamiliar with proper maintenance for your outdoor HVAC unit, the experts at RighTime Home Services are here to help!
