Air Conditioning Maintenance
Get Your AC Tune-Up!
You keep your computer's operating system up-to-date, you always clean up your dryer's lint trap and you make sure to tighten the bolts and screws on your favorite chair to keep it good and comfy. But when was the last time you performed any maintenance on your air conditioning system?
Since the main unit is often outside and the ductwork hidden away in the walls and crawlspaces of your home, it's easy to forget your HVAC is another appliance with its own maintenance needs. Without proper care, it could fail on you - and we all know they like to do so at the worst possible time.
Two times a year, in the fall and spring, you should get your air conditioner serviced. Its cleanliness, the condition of its components, and the effectiveness of its operation are all being checked.
HVAC professionals focus on your heater or furnace in the fall to get it as ready as possible for the chilly weather. HVAC experts plan tune-ups for air conditioners in the spring after the weather has warmed up so that it is prepared for the humidity and heat.
The outdoor unit should be inspected for debris and obstructions. Regular maintenance helps ensure the AC operates efficiently, reduces energy consumption, improves indoor air quality, and prevents costly breakdowns, ultimately extending the life of the system. Routine maintenance for the indoor air conditioner typically includes tasks such as cleaning or replacing air filters, inspecting and cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils, checking and cleaning the condensate drain line, lubricating moving parts, testing thermostat accuracy, and verifying refrigerant levels.
It's recommended to clean the outside AC unit at least once a year, ideally before the cooling season begins. However, if the unit is located in an area with high pollen, dust, or debris, more frequent cleaning may be necessary. Regular cleaning helps maintain the unit's efficiency by ensuring proper airflow and heat exchange. Remove any leaves, grass, dirt, and debris from the unit, and trim any nearby vegetation to maintain a clear and unobstructed area around the AC unit.
