Your air conditioning unit is one of the most important parts of your home, keeping temperatures cool during the summer and making your home a place to relax in comfortable temperatures. Just like the other appliances in your home, it is important to perform regular maintenance check ups on your air conditioning unit, to ensure that it remains working properly and to its highest level all year long. Air conditioning units work hard, especially during the summer, and if they are not properly cared for, they can have a variety of issues to deal with. Minor issues can turn into major and expensive repairs, even resulting in the need to completely replace your unit.
HVAC Check Up Maintenance
There are a number of steps you can take to ensure that your air conditioning unit continues to work throughout the year. Regular maintenance keeps your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible. Maintaining your air conditioner will save you money by extending the unit’s life. An air conditioner’s filters, coils and fans require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service. When you neglect regular maintenance checkups on your air conditioning system, you will most definitely see a steady decline in air conditioning performance while your energy usage will steadily increase, costing you more money in energy costs.
Change Air Conditioner Filters
It is necessary to change your air filters at least every three months. Replacing your air filters will maintain steady air flow into your home and also keep the air quality within your home at its highest, reducing the allergens that come into your home. If anyone residing inside of your home suffers from asthmatic illnesses, a clean air filter is necessary to assist in the best air quality possible. If you do suffer from allergies, or your home experiences a great deal of wind or construction is nearby, then you may need to switch out your filters more frequently to ensure quality air flow.
Set Thermostat to Appropriate Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring Temperatures
Setting your thermostat at an appropriate temperature will also assist in a properly running air conditioning unit. When thermostats are set at unreasonable temperatures, they are forced to work harder and longer than what is considered normal. An air conditioning unit that is attempting to reach a temperature that is very low will end up running constantly, possible never reaching the temperature that has been set. This will result in an overheated unit, which will open up the door to many other issues.
