4 Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips for a More Efficient System

air conditioning maintenanceTo keep your air conditioning system running efficiently, maintaining your system is crucial. To help avoid damage, save time, and save money, there are several things you can do to keep your air conditioning system maintained on top of regular maintenance from your HVAC technician.

Clean and Replace the Air Filter Regularly

Cleaning and replacing your air filter regularly will help reduce dirt, dust, and allergens that are pushed through your system and into your home. We recommend cleaning your air filters on a monthly basis during the hot summer months since the system is being used so frequently. Each spring, make time to have your HVAC technician come in for an annual cleaning.

Inspect the Thermostat

Your thermostat can effect your air conditioning system more than you would think. Always make sure yours is working properly to ensure you can easily control the temperature in your home to help save power, running costs, and keep your family comfortable.

Inspect the Condensing Unit

The condensing unit in your air conditioning system houses a heat exchanger section that will cool down and condense incoming refrigerant vapor before pushing the now cool air into your home. In the spring and once the cool temperatures roll in, make sure to inspect this unit for any signs of overheating, melted insulation, burned wires, and cracks or chips. If you need maintenance on it to make sure it’s running properly, have a professional take a look at it!

Inspect System Wiring

Checking the system wiring of your unit will help reduce issues down the road. Make sure that wiring is corroding and utilize an electrical tester to make sure that the wires are functioning properly. Your HVAC technician will be able to do this during regular maintenance.
