How to Prevent Air Conditioner Issues

post img

While not all AC repairs are completely avoidable, there are certain things you should be doing to protect your air conditioner to ensure it operates at peak efficiency and avoids air conditioner issues. Many of these tasks can even be done without the assistance of an HVAC contractor, helping you keep the cost of maintaining and repairing your unit much lower. The following tips will ensure you get the performance you want from your AC unit.

Replace Your Filters

It’s easy to forget about the air filters, but it’s the simplest thing you can do to enhance performance, protect your AC, and prevent air conditioner problems. The frequency of replacement varies, depending on whether you have pets and your unit. Some individuals may only need to replace the filter once a year, while others may require more frequent changes.

Inspect Ductwork

The ducts in your home may become dirty with debris that may not be caught in the filter. You should hire a professional regularly to inspect and repair any damage to your air ducts, as well as give them a good cleaning if needed.

Clear the Outdoor Unit

This is especially important in the fall when leaves are falling from the trees. If your outdoor unit becomes blocked by yard debris, it can greatly impact the performance of your air conditioner, causing the need for air conditioning service.

Get Regular Maintenance

Another area homeowners often neglect is routine AC maintenance. Hiring a professional for air conditioning service should be done twice a year to check for minor repairs, ensure your unit is operating at peak efficiency, and prevent air conditioner issues.
