Like every household appliance, your air conditioner is a component that needs to be regularly maintained. Maintenance is an important routine to adopt in order to ensure that your appliances will function up to par all year long. The same is true for your home’s air conditioner.
Maintenance is recommended so that your air conditioner’s parts can run as effectively as it should be while reducing chances of malfunction or faultiness in the future.
Other elements of AC maintenance to consider include:
- Changing and/or cleaning your filters when necessary to reduce the occurrence of clogs.
- Schedule an annual inspection of your evaporator coil and have it cleaned if needed.
- Your condenser unit should be free from dirt and debris. Cleaning the area around it as well as trimming nearby vegetation is helpful.
- When mowing, remember to blow clippings away from the unit.
