Regular maintenance is crucial for your air conditioning system’s efficient and reliable operation. By scheduling routine inspections and check-ups, you can catch potential issues early, extend the lifespan of your AC unit, and ensure optimal cooling performance.
Experts widely recommend scheduling a qualified HVAC technician’s annual inspection and maintenance visit. This comprehensive check-up is typically performed before the cooling season begins, allowing the technician to identify and address any underlying issues. During this visit, the technician will examine various components, clean the unit, check refrigerant levels, inspect electrical connections, lubricate moving parts, and ensure the system is operating at its peak efficiency.
Also, consider having your AC system tuned up twice a year—once before the cooling season and once before the heating season. This proactive approach allows the technician to fine-tune the system, make necessary adjustments, and prepare it for the upcoming season. Seasonal tune-ups help optimize performance, improve energy efficiency, and reduce the risk of unexpected breakdowns during periods of high demand.
While professional inspections are crucial, some maintenance tasks can be performed by homeowners on a regular basis. One such task is cleaning or replacing the air filters. Depending on usage and the type of filter, cleaning or replacement may be required every one to three months. Clogged filters restrict airflow, strain the system, and decrease cooling efficiency. By keeping filters clean, you can maintain better indoor air quality and ensure the smooth operation of your AC unit.
Apart from routine inspections and filter maintenance, several factors may influence the frequency of getting your AC checked out:
Whether you are looking at a hot summer coming up or not, it’s best to make sure that you’re AC is ready to go.
