If you have ever wondered why your air conditioning repair man constantly harps on you about changing your air filters regularly you’re about to find out.

Much of the time when we service an air conditioning system for a customer we find that they are fairly regimented about replacing their filters. Most people know to replace their filters at least once a month during the hot summer season and once or twice during the winter. This seems to work fine for homes in Las Vegas. But when you don’t follow this regiment you will find yourself with a coil that cannot be cleaned.

“The junk that sticks to the AC coil is pretty nasty stuff”

When a coil is allowed to build up dust lent dirt pet dander pet hair and skin without cleaning it will eventually pull this debris deeper inside the fence of the coil. If left alone within a couple of Seasons it will be in bed it’s so deep that there is no way to clean the coil. We see this all the time. More often we see this in rental properties. This very fact is why many air conditioners will fail.

What are The Tell-Tale signs of dirty coils?

  1. During the hottest part of the summer, the air conditioner will run Non-Stop.
  2. ​​Reduced ​airflow coming through the registers.
  3. The icing of the coil especially on humid days. ​This will reduce airflow from the ducts.
  4. There is a musty odder coming from the vents.
  5. The presence of dust bunnies at the corners of the supply registers.

What the Landlords need to know about Air conditioning maintenance.

In my limited experience, I find that tenants like to keep the property at about 72 degrees. Some even colder. This drives the utility cost way up. In some cases as much as $100 additional each month for a single condominium. Compound this low thermostat setting with bad airflow caused by a stopped up the coil and you have a recipe for an air conditioner that will never shut off day or night and will never work as well as the tenant prefers.

If you are a landlord or property owner that leases your home or condominium in Las Vegas Henderson of North Las Vegas it is a good idea to check to ensure that the air filters are changed several times a year. At least three or four times is the minimum that you can get away with. If you are not able to keep up with this yourself, do yourself a favor and get a filter service company on the job.

Some technicians managers and even owners tend to except everything that is widely taught in the industry. Tom tends to question everything before he makes it part of the HVAC practice. “When you work in air conditioning long enough you get to know things that you can not learn in a book. More over, you develop theories and ideas that might go against the perceived norm. Back in 2009 when he joined the crew at Fast Affordable Air he made it clear that he was done working for companies that price galge their customers. It wasn’t long until he established a uniform price sook standard that has been the foundation for the companies growth for the last decade. Unlike some general managers you might still see Tom show up on your job site. He keeps himself if good shape so that even in the hottest parts of the summer he can still spend a little time in the attic or on the roof if need. If you are considering a new comfort system, you may have Tom setting at your kitchen table discussing the merits of one air conditioning brand over another.
