It’s that spooky time of the year again, and maintenance scares should be the last thing on your mind. Normally, we think of low refrigerant, tune ups and checks, but what if there was a spooky problem that you would never have thought would cross your mind as the main culprit? What are we talking about? Spiders, yes, spiders.
First and foremost, the outdoor unit of your air conditioning and heating system should be clear of dust and debris because it can hold your whole system from working at 100% efficiency. Spider webs are a more common debris buildup than can easily takeover your system’s efficiency. With our fall maintenance checkup, one of our trusted technicians will clear your system of any debris and blockage such as spider webs.
On most condensing units (the outdoor component to your whole air system) there is an access panel. This panel holds the contactors and wires that manage the electrical current between the motor and compressor of the unit. This area is a common nesting ground for spiders to make their home and lay their eggs. This buildup can actually act as an electrical conduit which can disrupt electrical components, trip the breaker, or even affect the circuit board.
Spiders in the condenser unit are just one of the many reasons to schedule air conditioning maintenance in Marble Falls. Call the maintenance experts at Ken’s today!
