Quick Tips to Keep Your Air Conditioner Clean

Keep you AC unit cleanA great habit of getting into is making sure that your air conditioning unit is clean and free of debris and surrounding plants. 

Tip 1: While the AC is OFF, spray it down with a garden hose to clean out the fins surrounding the unit. With your normal nozzle, point the hose from about 12-18" into the sides of all the unit. Aiming at an angle from top to bottom then bottom to top. Make sure to get all sides of the unit.

You will likely see a lot of dirt and debris falling down to the casing bottom; you should spray that out as well.

Tip 2: Be sure mulch, high grass, shrubs, and other organic materials are a bit away from the unit. The more open area around your unit, the better your AC will run! 

Tip 3: Always contact Viccarone HVAC for further maintenance and disassembling anything on the unit so we can clean from the inside of the case, if necessary.  We do not suggest homeowners doing this themselves unless they have electrical knowledge.

Tip 4: Inspect and change your furnace filters often. Record the date of changing out the filter and try to keep up on a quarterly basis for most filter media to be changed out.

Remember, even in summer months, airflow is still running through the furnace filtration for cooling season, so keep up on your filters as it is CRITICAL for effective operations.

Were excited to announce Viccarone Heating Air Conditioning has been recognized by NCIs High-Performance HVAC Today! Gino Viccarone is a lifer. From the time of his graduation from the West Side Institute vocational school in Cleveland, OH, to where he is today, he has only worked in the HVAC Industry. His first job was with a local HVAC contracting company where he worked for slightly more than eight years as a service technician. The hours were long, the work could be grueling, especially during the hot, muggy Cleveland summers. Eventually, he was given the opportunity to do some installation work and he fell in love. In 1994, he decided to start his own company, and Viccarone Heating and Air Conditioning was born. He operated the business from his home.
