Why AC Maintenance Is Important

Your air conditioning needs periodic tune-ups, just like other things in and around your home. For example, would you ever not take your car in to get serviced? By providing your A/C unit with a little TLC, you can help your system run at peak performance, which in turn will save you money on your electric bill each month. It is easy for your air conditioner to feel like something that does not require too much attention, that is until it stops working.

Here is a short, easy, yet highly effective Summer Air Conditioning Maintenance Checklist that can help you beat the summer heat.

  1. Professional A/C Tune-Up

Right off that bat, we can’t stress enough the importance of having a professional air conditioning tune-up done on your HVAC unit once to twice a year. While there are DIY tips and tricks homeowners can do to extend the life of their unit, nothing can take the place of having an expert give your unit a spruce up. The benefits of doing this include (but are not limited to) lowering your energy bills, reducing breakdowns and improving your indoor air quality and comfort year-round.

  1. Air Filter Replacement

If you scroll through our blog posts, this little item on the checklist has a way of popping up everywhere. Why? Because one of the best things you can do to keep your A/C unit running optimally is to check and replace your air filter every 30-90 days. Every month go through your home and check each air filter. Does it look dirty? Replace it. If you hold it up to light does light pass through it? If light does not go through it, replace it. Reach the instructions provided with every filter for additional recommendations.

  1. Clean Your Outdoor Condenser Unit

Your outdoor A/C condenser unit can take a beating each year. Just like your lawn, it accumulates lots of debris throughout the seasons. It is important to check your condenser unit every few months and give it a little love, especially before the summer arrives. Safety first, before you do anything make sure you consult a trusted A/C pro to make sure you know how to properly turn off the air conditioner’s power source before you start any DIY cleaning. Once you are sure the power is off to the unit, you can begin by removing any obvious debris around the unit like twigs, leaves, insects, etc. Trim away any plants that may be overgrown by the unit and then use your garden hose to rinse off all remaining dirt and debris.

These three to-dos on your summer A/C maintenance list can have a big impact on your comfort inside this summer.
