Professional A/C Maintenance

Air conditioners are easy to operate, but do require regular maintenance to keep them operating properly and efficiently. Neglecting necessary maintenance will reduce the cooling effectiveness and increase your energy usage. Here are some maintenance tips below:

Get An Annual Inspection

It is important to have a professional inspect your air conditioner prior to each summer. An annual inspection can help keep you cool and comfortable throughout summer. Proper maintenance extends the life of your system and maintains efficiency. Plus in most cases lack of regular maintenance may void your warranty.

Change your filters

The most important thing you can do as a homeowner is to routinely replace or clean your filters. You usually need to replace your filter prior to each season. However, if you have pets and a lot of dust in your home you may need to replace it more often. A clogged filter can cause your air conditioner to stop running. Avoid these unexpected problems by always replacing your filter.

Clean up debris

You should always remove debris around your outdoor unity. Clearing off leaves, grass and weeds around the unit to maximize airflow. If you live in an area where there are a lot of cottonwood trees you may need to watch for cotton getting in the condenser.

 

Dirty Filters Can Cause Big Problems


Dirty filters block and restrict airflow and can significantly reduce your air conditioner’s ability to cool your home. Many repairs we see are a result of a dirty filter. If the airflow continues to be restricted the air conditioner can freeze up the condenser or cause the air conditioner to stop running completely. See our video below for instructions on how to locate and replace your filter(s) in your home.

Replacing a dirty filter can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by up to 15%
