Treat’s Heating & Cooling would like to give Bonney Lake, WA residents a few tips on air conditioning maintenance.

To maintain the efficiency of your air conditioning unit you should routinely replace or clean its filters.  When filters become dirty or clogged, this will significantly reduce the airflow and the system’s ability to run at full capacity.  When airflow is obstructed the air that bypasses the filter can carry dirt to the evaporator coil and impair its capacity.  Replacing a dirty filter can also lower your energy consumption.  Some types of filters are reusable and are available in a variety of efficiencies.  In the cooling season the filters should be replaced every month or two.

If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant it can’t be solved by merely adding refrigerant.  A professional trained technician needs to repair any leaks, test the system, and then charge the system with the correct amount of refrigerant.  Our Treat’s Heating & Cooling technicians would be happy to help you with any issues you might be having.  The performance and efficiency of your air conditioner works the best when the refrigerant charge matched the manufacturer’s specification and is not undercharged or overcharged.

When it is humid outside you should check the condensate drain to make sure it is draining properly and isn’t clogged.  No matter your situation, Treat’s Heating & Cooling can get your equipment “tuned up” & in tip top shape in no time at at.  Go online or call us for an appointment today.  It would be our pleasure to serve you.
