Do It Yourself Maintenance:

While a yearly maintenance, and/or regular scheduled services will certainly boost your AC units performance, there are a couple of month-to-month jobs you can also to do to preserve it throughout the summer season.

  • Check the air filter for dust and dirt build-up, and either vacuum and wash out your filter, or replace it when necessary, to avoid putting undue pressure on the fan – which decreases your systems overall performance.
  • Ensure the outside units casing isn’t blocked with vegetation, dirt and debris, keep the area 2 feet around your unit free from any plant-life, and wash down the unit when necessary.
  • Make sure the area in your house that you’re cooling is sealed off properly, to avoid over-exertion of your unit; seal windows and doors.
  • Use a ceiling fan to enhance your AC units efficiency, this may enable you to reduce the temperature as the fan distributes the air flow more evenly.
