A/C Spring Cleaning
When thinking about your furnace or air conditioner it is important to under stand that most central air conditioners have three basic parts:
- Compressor/Condenser – This is the outdoor unit that sits next to your home
- Evaporator/A-coil – an indoor unit which is located in the plenum (the duct work above your furnace).
- Duct work and air vents

This article outlines 3 steps a homeowner can take when trying to determine why their central air system is unable to keep up on a hot summer day.
Step 1. Clean your air ducts. It is important to understand that your air duct system was never designed to have upwards of 40 pounds of dust accumulated inside. All this dust, dirt and construction debri will restrict the air flow causing your a/c system to work harder and less efficiently than it was originally designed for.
