Change Air Filters
One of the simplest and most important things you can do to maintain your AC system is to change your air filters regularly. Dirty filters can restrict airflow and cause your system to work harder, leading to higher energy bills and more wear and tear on your equipment. For most homes, it’s recommended to change your air filters at least every 90 days, or more frequently if you have pets or allergies.
Clean Your Coils
Over time, your AC’s evaporator and condenser coils can become dirty and clogged, which can cause your system to work less efficiently. To clean your coils, turn off the power to your system and gently clean the coils with a soft brush or vacuum. You can also use a coil cleaning solution if needed. Be careful not to bend or damage the fins on the coils, as this can affect your system’s performance.
Schedule Annual AC Check-Up
It’s typically recommended to hire a professional AC technician once a year to run a routine check-up on your system. This ensures that everything is working well and you won’t have any surprises come summer.
Test Your Thermostat
Before the summer heat sets in, perform a system test to make sure your AC is working properly. Turn on your system and listen for any unusual noises, check for any leaks or signs of damage, and make sure your system is effectively cooling your space. If you notice any issues, contact a professional HVAC company for air conditioner repair.
