Complete Mechanical, LLC, can help you with air conditioning service in Mill Creek. When you first turn your air conditioning unit on, in the spring, it might not perform up to expectations. There are a few things you, as the owner, can do quickly and safely.
Check to see if the power is on or off. Always turn off the power before working on an electrical appliance. If your a/c unit shares duct-work with your furnace, take out the old filter. Clean around the opening with a cloth or vacuum cleaner. Replace it with a clean, fresh filter. Outside, remove any winter covering, and clear away dead leaves, grass and other debris. Such debris can block the air intake, and cause the unit to malfunction.
Not all spring maintenance repairs lend themselves to do it yourself. Other things that might need to be done include a deep clean of the air conditioning coils or replacing the capacitor. The capacitor is a part that jump-starts the fan on your a/c unit. As you probably already know, the fan pulls air into the system so that it can be cooled. Before working on the capacitor, any stored electricity must be discharged, to keep the worker from getting a shock. This is one of the repairs that is better done by someone who has some experience and training. Another repair that definitely needs a licensed professional, is checking the Freon or other coolant in the unit. Because such chemicals can be environmentally damaging, they require special training.
