- Prevent unexpected repairs – most of the repairs we see that cause air conditioners to shutdown or stop cooling are because of lack of maintenance. The last thing you want is to not have your air conditioner working when those temps in Albuquerque start hitting 100 degrees.
- Maintain your warranty – Did you know that most air conditioning brands like Carrier, Trane and others require you to have the unit maintained by a heating and cooling company, otherwise it voids the warranty. Save money and frustrations.

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 the 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 unit. 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%

Custom Installation Options
If you’re considering converting to refrigerated air conditioning you should know all your options. Many people consider converting to refrigerated air when their swamp cooler just doesn’t cut it anymore. However, refrigerated air isn’t the only option you have when upgrading your air conditioner. TLC has many solutions to help improve your swamp cooler if refrigerated air isn’t an option for you or doesn’t make sense for your home and needs. TLC’s experts can recommend other solutions like the following:
Mastercool swamp coolers are a step up from standard swamp coolers. If you need to replace your existing swamp cooler TLC’s experts are experienced in standard cooler installations and upgrades. Mastercool swamp coolers offer a better cooling ability than standard coolers.
If Mastercool coolers are a good option to upgrade your standard cooler from, then Breezair is the best option you can upgrade to without converting to refrigerated air. Breezair offers superior cooling capacity and a variable speed motor to maximize your comfort control. Breezair coolers offer cooling temperatures close to refrigerated air options. Ask our technicians about this cooling option today.
Ductless air conditioners are growing in popularity for their energy efficiency and cooling effectiveness. We’ve seen a surge in areas like Santa Fe, where many homes were built without ductwork making central air conditioning, not a feasible option. With ductless you are able to cool individual rooms or areas of your home maximizing energy efficiency. Mini-splits can also be added as a supplemental cooling comfort for homes that have renovations or additions. While ductless is an excellent cooling option for whole-home or partial cooling the installation costs are more than refrigerated air. Ask one of our professionals -for more information about ductless systems.
