Spring is here, which means it’s nearly time for your residential and commercial air conditioner to be in heavy use. While servicing your AC unit might not be at the top of your to-do list, do it before warm weather arrives so you can prevent a hot home this summer. A quick service check can save you money!
Preventative maintenance is the optimal way to extend the life of your air conditioner. Did you know that some AC companies require it for their warranty to remain valid? HVAC technicians who perform inspections can catch small issues before they turn into significant, and potentially costly problems. Simple yearly maintenance and inspections could save your household and your business thousands of dollars. Since your air conditioner is under a lot of strain in the summer, spring is the ideal time for maintenance.
Maintenance Tasks for the Air Conditioner
- Take Care of the Outdoor Unit - Gently clean the coils on your outdoor unit with a water hose. Clear away all debris in a 2-foot radius surrounding the unit.
- Change the Filters - Your filters need cleaning or replacing at least every three months. If you have pets that shed, change them monthly. They’re responsible for keeping your air clean and helping your air conditioner function at its peak efficiency.
- Schedule Inspections & Maintenance - Schedule your yearly air conditioner inspection to ensure everything is functioning as it should. The technicians can thoroughly clean, inspect, and make repairs as necessary.
- Have Ducts Cleaned - Your ducts should be cleaned every three to five years. If it’s been more than five years since you had your ducts cleaned, schedule an appointment. Otherwise, your system will continue to circulate accumulated dust and other particles.
