Are you concerned with limiting your AC repair costs? Keep up with your maintenance! Here are a few easy air conditioner maintenance tips to keep your AC in proper working order:
Replace or Clean Your Filters. This is one of the most important AC-related maintenance duties; dirty filters can contaminate your air and make your AC work harder than it needs to. Dirty filters force your system to work harder in order to perform well. This can cause some serious wear and tear to the system.
Check Your Thermostat. Check your thermostat from time to time, to make sure that it’s keeping your home at the right temperature. You can change your thermostat along with outdoor air temperature changes. By turning your thermostat a few degrees lower or higher (depending on the season), you can save energy and keep your system operating smoothly.
Check Your Condenser Fan. Be sure to replace your condenser fan blades if you notice any cracks or chips in the blades.
Schedule a Maintenance Check-Up. The best way to ensure that your heating system is running efficiently is to schedule a professional maintenance check-up.
To prolong your air conditioner’s lifespan and keep it running smoothly, you need to give it some regular maintenance. Your comfort and safety depend on a well-maintained system! So, you should change your filters as regularly as possible. Clogged air filters can reduce airflow and cause serious wear-and-tear on your system. Most filters need to be changed at least once per month. Second, be sure to keep your compressors clear and free of debris. You should also schedule regular professional maintenance checkups — a yearly tune-up is crucial.
It’s important to take the time to maintain your AC system. Proper maintenance will allow your heating system to run more smoothly and last longer. Most notably, it can also prevent the need for costly repairs.
