A/C Maintenance: The Key To Keeping It Running Reliably
With temperatures on the rise and the coronavirus potentially keeping us home more than usual in the coming weeks and months, having a reliable cooling system becomes crucial to maintaining quality of life at home.
The best way to make sure that your central air conditioner will run at its reliable best? Get your A/C serviced by a licensed professional HVAC contractor.
Routine cooling maintenance can address minor issues before they become repairs that will knock your A/C out when you need it most. It will also help keep your equipment running at peak efficiency – an important consideration if you’re using your home cooling system more often than usual.
Four things you can do to prepare for A/C maintenance
Although air conditioner maintenance is not a do-it-yourself project (please don’t try it if you’re not a professional), there are some things you can do to get the ball rolling in the coming weeks.
- Check your ductwork – Look for obvious holes, cracks and connectors. If you find any – or even if you don’t, since many leaks in your ductwork can’t be seen – consider sealing your ducts to improve your air quality and lower your home energy bills.
- Test your A/C unit – Briefly run it to check for problems – that way you can fix them before the heat arrives.
- Clear the outdoor unit – Remove sticks, leaves, and other debris that may have gathered in the fall and winter from around your outdoor unit.
- Schedule your annual tune-up and inspection – Make sure your central A/C is ready for action from the first hot day by signing up for an annual cooling system tune-up from Ace-Robbins.
