Do-It-Yourself A/C Care
Here are a few tips so you can prevent problems from developing in your AC unit.
Check, Clean, and Replace Your Air Filters
Set up a maintenance schedule to remind yourself to check your air filters at least once a month, and more often during high use. If the filter is dirty, make sure to clean it if it is a reusable filter, otherwise replace it. Clean air filters allow for optimum airflow, performance, and indoor air quality.
Check and Clean Your Air Conditioning System Equipment
If you are comfortable taking things apart and putting them back together, check the individual components for apparent wear and tear or loose connections. Carefully, clean and vacuum the parts as you are doing the inspection. If you prefer, Aire Serv® technicians are available to set up a maintenance schedule with you, where they will professionally clean your equipment.
Don’t Forget Your Outside Unit
The exterior unit should be clear of any foliage or debris, so the airflow is not obstructed. Like your air filters, a clean and debris-free unit will allow for maximum airflow; keeping everything working at the best level possible.
Schedule a Yearly Professional Inspection
Another important part of maintaining your AC is scheduling an annual maintenance checkup—ideally before the cooling season begins—in order to make sure it is working as efficiently as possible. The Aire Serv® Total Comfort Tune-up will ensure that your air conditioner is in tip-top working shape and that it will last for years to come. Plus, our experts at Aire Serv® can address smaller problems that could grow into larger, much more costly issues in the future.
Know What Type of Air Conditioning Unit You Have
There are a number of different types of air conditioning units, and the way you maintain it will depend on the type of unit you own.
Some common AC units include:
- Split system units, which make use of an indoor and outdoor unit.
- Ductless split systems, which use indoor and outdoor units but without a duct system.
- Packaged air conditioners, which sit outside.
