As a homeowner, you might not give much thought to your air conditioner. In fact, you probably only notice it when it’s not working the way it should, but by then, it’s usually too late and you have to pay for costly repairs.
Wouldn’t it be nice to avoid unnecessary repairs? The good news is that there are things you can do to improve the performance and longevity of your home’s air conditioning system while helping to avoid breakdowns and costly repairs.
Proper maintenance is the key to preventing costly problems. Here are some simple things you can do to maintain your home AC.
- Replace old filters—Over time, the filters in your home’s air conditioning system get clogged up with dust, dirt, and other various particles. When this happens, air flow is obstructed and system performance declines. Make sure you replace your filters every few months.
- Don’t blast it 24/7—Try not to have your air conditioner running full blast all day and night. This will cause your HVAC system to wear out quickly. Instead, use fans to distribute air and keep the house cooler so you don’t have to turn the thermostat all the way down.
- Hire an AC maintenance company to perform complete system inspection—The easiest and most effective way to maintain your home’s air conditioning system is to hire someone to do it for you. Let an HVAC maintenance company come out to perform a complete annual inspection on your unit.
