Your air conditioner is a key part of your comfort during the summer months, as it keeps you, your family, and your pets comfortably enjoying your home throughout the summer. Ensure that your system is running efficiently at its peak performance during the upcoming months with these quick and easy maintenance checks. In addition to your own at-home checks, consider pairing these three easy steps with the help of an annual maintenance plan, and your system will continue to function at its best during the hottest months of the year.
Keep Coils Clean and Straight in Your Unit
Your air conditioner coils accumulate dirt and debris over time. Not only do these blockages disrupt airflow, but they also prevent coils from adequately absorbing heat. Outside condenser coils can become especially dirty over time. For this reason, it is important to make sure that your unit is thoroughly checked and inspected. If you have fins on your condenser coils, you may also want to carefully inspect them to ensure that airflow is not blocked in your unit.
Regularly Remove Debris From Your Unit
The area surrounding outdoor units may need extra maintenance to ensure that no plants or shrubs are growing into the air conditioner and into coils. Especially following cooler months, it is crucial to carefully remove debris such as leaves and dirt before using it again. It is important to check for any debris build-up in any season, as even mowing your lawn can leave your unit covered in debris unintentionally. By keeping your unit clean and free of debris, you are also preventing problems that may require repairs or replacement.
Ensure that Your Air Filters are Clean and Well-Maintained
One simple step in the maintenance of your unit is to make sure that your air filters are clean and well-maintained regularly and according to schedule. Particularly if you have pets, dust, or are prone to allergies from pollen, it may be a good idea to replace your filters more frequently than required. Ensure that your filters are well-maintained to keep your home fresh and your unit running efficiently throughout the year.
