Basic AC Maintenance for Residential Homes
A few best practices for keeping air conditioner in good working order include cleaning out the vents and changing the filters regularly. We recommend that you clean out the vents once a month or so in the summer time and every once in a while during the winter, even though the air conditioner is not in use.
When it comes to changing out your air conditioner’s filters, it’s best to simply follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the frequency with which they should be changed. This can vary considerably from one brand and model to another, so be sure to check with the installer or the manufacturer for specifics about your model.

There are also many maintenance steps that you’ll want to hire a professional for. Professional air conditioning maintenance for residential homes typically include a thorough inspection of your AC system as well as a complete coil cleaning.
During a maintenance visit, technicians will look for any parts that are showing signs of wear or that look like they’ll need to be replaced soon. They will also make sure you do not have any leaks in your system along with checking your coolant levels to make sure they’re right where they need to be.
Professional air conditioning system service technicians will tweak your system to make sure it’s working just as well as the day you got it. After all, your car needs a tune up every now and then. Why should your air conditioner be any different?
The most economical and convenient way to maintain your air conditioner system is to have professional maintenance done about once per year.
Benefits of AC Maintenance
When you first have a new air conditioner system installed, it’s hard to imagine that it needs to have any work done. Your system will probably work well for the first few years and you won’t even think about needing to service it. However, during that time, even the best air conditioning systems will start to lose some of their efficiency.
Over time, this gradual drop in efficiency will start to add up, but having a regular maintenance check performed once a year can all but eliminate this drop off. This will keep your energy bills low and you’ll be able to enjoy the comfort of your air conditioned home for years to come.
These regular maintenance checkups will also help keep you from needing emergency repairs because the maintenance technicians can often catch problems before they become evident. Also, removing these parts before they break can decrease the chance that other parts of your system start breaking down from abnormal wear and tear.
Just like the human body, when one part isn’t working properly it can cause all of the other parts to work overtime to compensate. With AC regular maintenance, however, you won’t have to worry about any of this. So call Affordable Heating and Cooling today.
