PROFESSIONAL AC MAINTENANCE
Air conditioners are fairly simple to operate, however, they require regular service & maintenance to keep them working smoothly and efficiently. Procrastinating and neglecting to preform necessary maintenance on a regular schedule will reduce the efficiency and effectiveness of your AC unit, and increase your energy usage.
Remember the following tips:
Change Your Filters
It is key to routinely replace or clean your filters as a home owner. A simple act of maintanece can truly save your AC system. You usually need to replace your filter prior to each season. However, if you have pets and a lot of dust in your home you may need to replace it more often. A clogged filter can cause your air conditioner to stop running. Avoid these unexpected malfunctions by always replacing your filter.
Get An Annual Inspection
It is imperative to have your air conditioner inspected professionaly prior to the peak of each summer. An annual inspection can help keep your home cool and comfortable throughout the hot and humid days. Proper maintenance extends the life span of your cooling system and maintains its efficiency. In many scenerios, is also helps you avoid losing your manufacturer warranty.
Clean Up Debris
Regularly check up and remove debris around your outdoor air condidnioning unit. Clearing off branches, leaves, grass, and weeds around the system maximizes the airflow. If you live in an area where there are a lot of cottonwood trees you may need to watch for cotton getting in the condenser.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PREVENTATIVE AC MAINTENANCE?

Take regular care of your system by getting your ducts cleaned, and ensure that all of the moving parts are in working condition.
