Your air conditioning unit works hard to cool, circulate and filter the air in your home, and it needs regular care to perform as you expect it to. But over time, dust and debris can accumulate around condenser coils and other vital areas of the unit causing it to work harder to get the job done. This not only compromises efficiency levels, but will cost you more in energy bills in the long run. To keep your AC running at optimal temperatures, regular HVAC maintenance is vital.
Yes and No.
You should change your air filter every 30-90 days. You can also keep surrounding areas of the air conditioner unit clean by trimming trees and bushes and removing plants and weeds from around the outside of the unit. A good rule of thumb is to clear a two-foot area surrounding the entire air conditioning unit. And finally, turn up the thermostat when you're away from home for extended periods of time to lessen the load on your system.
What you shouldn’t do is remove parts of the unit to inspect or try to clean yourself. Professional HVAC maintenance technicians are trained to know what to look for and can safely identify potential issues before they become major problems.
Regular HVAC maintenance involves a thorough inspection, cleaning and repairs (or replacing) of any necessary parts of the air conditioner. Here’s what to expect from your annual visit:
Remember, fixing minor issues today may save you a hefty repair in the future.
The HVAC contractors at Lawes recommend preventative HVAC maintenance every spring, just before the hot weather begins. But even if you missed the optimal “spring tune-up” time, remember, it’s better to schedule preventative maintenance for later in the season than not to have it done at all.For more information on home or business HVAC maintenance, contact Lawes Home Comfort Specialists at 732-741-6300.
