Breathe Easy—Call Aire Serv® Today

It’s important to take care of your air conditioning unit so it lasts longer, works better, and helps you keep energy costs down. There are a few things that you can do to ensure that your air conditioner keeps running as efficiently as possible all year long. Keep reading for advice from our AC experts at Aire Serv!

Top Tips for Maintaining Your AC

Here are a few tips for preventing problems from developing with your AC unit:

  • Check your air filters. You should check your AC unit’s air filter every month. If the filter is dirty, you should either clean or replace it. Not changing your air filter can result in it becoming clogged. This will not only restrict air flow throughout your home, it will also result in your AC working much harder than it should, which causes unnecessary wear and tear on the equipment and increases your energy costs.

  • Clean the equipment. Make sure to clean the individual components of your air conditioner regularly to avoid grime, dirt, and other obstructions from decreasing its efficiency. Use a shop vacuum to clear the dirt and dust around the AC and ducts.

  • Keep the area around the unit clear. Make sure nothing is obstructing the exterior of your air conditioner. You should keep your bushes trimmed back and make sure no other plants or other greenery grow too close.

Schedule an Annual 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. 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 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.

Is It Time to Repair or Replace Your Unit?

An air conditioning unit can be expensive, which means the last thing you want to do is purchase another one. Sometimes, however, repairing it might not be the best option. An older unit that has undergone multiple repairs should probably be replaced. Other factors to consider include overall investment costs, long-term operating costs, and utility rates.
