5 Types of AC Maintenance
To keep your family healthy and happy during the sweltering summer months, it's important that your home's AC unit works reliably. By staying up to date with AC maintenance, it'll be less likely that you encounter any trouble with your unit. If you do notice any signs of trouble---such as strange noises or smells---it'll be best to call in a reputable HVAC professional who can promptly ensure that your unit is functioning flawlessly. Here's a look at five AC maintenance tasks.
Clean/Replace Air Filter
During the scorching summer months when your AC is regularly on, you'll want to replace your disposable filter every month, while reusable filters should be cleaned monthly. If your filter doesn't get cleaned regularly, then dirty air may be circulated through your home.
Check Condenser Unit Fan
Damaged fan blades can hinder the unit's ability to effectively cool the home. When inspecting the fan, just turn off your AC unit and then check the fan for chipping and cracking.
It's important to occasionally take a look at your thermostat and then make sure your home is being consistently kept at your preferred temperature. Programmable thermostats are desirable because they allow you to establish a regular heating/cooling schedule that makes energy use more efficient.
Clean your Outside Unit
If dirt and/or plants have sullied your outside unit, then airflow could be negatively affected. To wash the unit, turn it off and then use a garden hose for rinsing. You'll want to use a light water flow so that you don't potentially cause any damage.
A more in-depth maintenance task is the inspection of the unit's wiring and affiliated components. Oftentimes, homeowners prefer to leave this job to an HVAC professional.
