Air Conditioner Maintenance for Your Home

Proper Air Conditioner inspections are always needed

Air conditioner maintenance is always important, and it helps with comfort. You will want to make sure that the air conditioner in your home is operating and functioning properly. This will help to ensure that your home is cool and comfortable this summer during the hotter months. If you are unsure if the system needs to be inspected, it is always best to have it looked at right before the summer. Make sure to contact us and we can check the entire system for you. This will help you to have an efficient system when you need it to operate this summer

Debris Removed from the Air Conditioner

Always make sure to clear away any debris from an exterior part of the air conditioner. Have brush, leaves, sticks, and any other build up of debris removed from around the unit. This will help the air conditioner to run efficiently, by allowing proper air circulation through the unit. If there is a build up of debris, then it will not run, as it otherwise should be. Remember that you should inspect it for any other debris like bird nests or dead inspects.

Check the Filter

You should also remember to check the filter on the system as well. Doing so will help to keep the air in the best condition of your home as well. The filter is designed to capture and collect any dirt and dust that are in the air of your home. When it is recommended, make sure that you clean and change the filter in the system. This allows the best airflow to go through the system. When the filter is clogged, it will have more strain against the parts as it tries to circulate the air through. If you are not sure when the filter should be changed, make sure to contact us. Depending on your home, lifestyle, and pets, the filter may need to be changed on a more frequent basis. This helps keep your home cool and comfortable.
