Keeping Up With Your AC Maintenance
Aside from the yearly or seasonally maintenance that your service technicians perform, there are a few things that you can do to prolong the life of your AC system. Having a good maintenance regimen and sticking to it is by far the most proactive way to ensure you and your family don’t have any breakdowns on those long hot summer days.
Here are some ‘in-home’ maintenance items that should be addressed on a regular basis.
Make sure that your AC system has a clean filter at all times. Periodically check the filter to see how long it will be before replacing. A good rule of thumb is to replace the filter on the first day of every month, but keep an eye on it throughout the month just to be sure. If you have indoor pets such as a cat, for instance, you might want to replace the filter about every three weeks.
Also, look at the filter you have chosen to filter the air in your home. With all the new airborne threats today it might be time to for that cheap filter to be upgraded to a more efficient one for the health benefit of your family.
Unrestricted Air Flow
After the filter changing process, go through the house and check all the vents in every room. Make sure that every room is getting that fresh supply of cool comfortable air by making sure all the vent registers are in proper working order and replace any of them that aren’t opening and closing properly.
Check on the Outdoor Unit
It is also a good idea to check on the condensing unit that sits outside your home. Sometimes, limbs and other debris can lodged up against them restricting their ability to provide the condensing part of the AC cycle.
Make yourself a chart with these items on them and post the chart where you can see it all times and keep up with your end of the AC maintenance regimen.
