The Importance of Preventative Maintenance for Your Air Conditioner
The Importance of maintaining your air conditioner
Having an air conditioning unit that works flawlessly is so convenient and comforting at the same time. There is no greater joy than walking into your cool home when it’s hot outside. This is a good reason why you might want to keep your air conditioner in top form, to keep you and your family comfortable. In addition to that, the importance of preventative maintenance for your air conditioners cannot be overlooked, as this will minimize the chances of a break down in the North Texas Summer heat. Another thing that cannot be underestimated, is the effect an AC system has on your utility bill when it needs to be maintained. A well-maintained heating and air conditioning system can save you hundreds of dollars each year on utility savings alone!
Air conditioner maintenance
Air conditioners need to be regularly maintained to keep running smoothly, for the same reason we change the oil in our cars every 3 thousand miles. You wouldn’t neglect that, now would you? We often forget our systems need maintenance, and just take for granted that it’s working when we need it, but your AC requires regular maintenance from a certified professional like Efficient Home Solutions to ensure it continues to work properly. There are so many systems out there that are poorly maintained, and many of those are ones we get calls about in the summer, when they’ve broken down!
What Can You Do if Your Air Conditioner Isn’t Cooling Properly?
If you get home late in the day and realize your home is a bit warmer than it should be, here’s a couple things you can do before calling Efficient Home Solutions.
- Check your air filter. Often a dirty filter could be the culprit. It’s best to check your filters every month, and change them as soon as there’s visibly dirt/dust accumulating. This simple monthly task can prolong the life if your HVAC system.
- Check to see if your unit is frozen up. If it is, there’s not much we can do until it thaws out. The best thing to do is turn your system to the “off” setting, and set your fan to “on”. Then give us a call.
