Air Conditioner Filter Cleanings/Replacements

In order for an air conditioning system to work effectively, it’s critical to keep out dust and dirt. Air conditioners run with much more efficiency when filters are routinely cleaned. This will lower utility bills and prevent the need for costly repairs or replacing parts compromised by neglect. Clean filters also promote better indoor air quality.

Air Conditioner Tune-Ups

Just like a well-traveled car needs a 3,000 mile service, so does a well-used central air conditioning system. To keep your system running at its peak efficiency, coolant levels and pressure must be checked. Thermostats must be calibrated for optimum comfort and control. Wiring, contacts, capacitors and relays need to be inspected and possibly tightened. Evaporator coils and the condenser must be cleaned. The motor and blades of a condenser fan need to be inspected and possibly lubricated. Our technicians do all of the above as part of our AC tune-ups. They also perform necessary safety and efficiency checks.

DIY Air Conditioner Maintenance Recommendations

In between professional cleanings and tune-ups, property owners are encouraged to further protect their system with some basic DIY maintenance. For instance, be sure to keep the area near your central AC clear of leaves, branches, sticks, and other debris.

Furthermore, make sure the unit is covered off-season. If you’re comfortable, you can change or clean AC filters yourself. Just make sure you’re safe (disconnect electricity from the unit) and carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions. While power is disconnected from the unit, you can also use a garden hose to rinse the compressor.

It’s a good idea to schedule A/C maintenance at least once a year. One way to ensure your system runs optimally through the summer is to have it inspected each spring. This way you’ll have some peace of mind knowing you, your family, tenants, or guests will stay cool – even on the hottest summer’s day.
