Without an air conditioner that actually works, it can be near impossible to make it through the warm and hot weather with your sanity intact. Your air conditioner may be closer to its end-of-life than you may realize if you don’t have it regularly inspected. We know you want to keep your home feeling as comfortable as possible, you want to keep the costs low, and you want to be assured that your AC will not break down when you need it the most.
The best way to handle air conditioning issues is to prevent them from happening in the first place. You can avoid having a broken A/C unit with the right care and maintenance.
How Can You Maintain Your HVAC System?
- Change your air filter monthly to ensure it remains clean.
- Clean the coils on your A/C unit with air conditioner cleaner. Always make sure you have turned the power off when you do this.
- Call a technician at least once a year to have the air conditioner drained so you can avoid anything getting backed up.
- If there is dirt and other debris around your air conditioner, be sure to clean it thoroughly.
How Can You Save Money?
- Keep your air conditioning unit maintained annually. When your unit is in good shape, you will get better results.
- To ensure no air can escape from your home, make sure the ducts are sealed properly.
- Seal the doors and windows as best as you can. Make sure no doors and windows are opened when your A/C is running. The less air that finds its way out of your home, the better.
- Consider buying a programmable thermostat if you do not already have a one. You’ll be surprised with how much money you can save, even when you are not at home.
- If you think it might be time to update any of your equipment, then you may want to go ahead and act on your instincts.
