With the heat and humidity in full swing this summer your air conditioner is putting in a lot of work. The best way to keep cool this summer is to stay on-top of your unit’s upkeep so you can be sure everything is running correctly. There are a few tips for you to help make sure your air conditioner is working as it should during the warmer months.
Keep the Area Around Unit Clear of Brush and Debris
Summer is the most popular to mow your lawn, making it possible for grass clippings and other debris to accumulate outside of your air conditioner. This can cause a decline in system capacity and reduced airflow, resulting in your air conditioner working harder and ultimately wearing down earlier. Be sure to consistently clean up any debris around your unit so your air conditioner can last as long as possible.
Change or Clean the Air Filter
Regularly replacing or cleaning the air filters in your air conditioner will increase its efficiency. For any questions about which filter you should use or how often you should change it, check the filter itself or feel free to reach out to the team at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc so we can advise based on your specific system. For certain filter sizes, we can check and replace them at your annual maintenance visit. It’s important to know that if your air conditioner is in regular use, it’s subject to dusty environments, or you have pets, that your filter could need to be cleaned or changed more regularly.
Your air conditioner’s coils accumulate dirt over time which will lower airflow and insulates the coil making it more difficult to absorb heat. The outdoor coils can become dirty if the surroundings are dusty or if there is nearby foliage. Coils can also bend, hindering airflow through the coil. Our pros can check the coils at your annual maintenance visit to clean or straighten coils as appropriate.
