Summer has arrived. Most people use air conditioners to beat the heat during the season. However, you can keep your energy bills down and have more money in your wallet with good summer AC maintenance.
Here are three air conditioner maintenance tips that will ensure efficient operation resulting in reduced energy bills.
1. Have the pros at ABC inspect and replace your air filter
Air filters keep dust, dirt, and other debris out of the system. However, over time, the filter becomes clogged. This results in inefficient air flow that strains the system.
You should have the air conditioner air filter inspected by a professional technician, and replaced if necessary. It’s recommended that you have the air filter checked every month during the summers as the filter gets dirty due to heavy use.
There are several kinds of air filters, so call ABC and we’ll walk you through what type of upkeep you’ll need to do throughout the summer months.
2. Our technicians should check your air conditioner coils
Another important summer air conditioner maintenance tip is to have us check the coils. If the coils are defective, the system will strain to generate cool air. Ultimately, the system will draw more energy to cool the room.
In this way, your energy bills will spike up. Also, there are increased chances of the system breaking down due to overwork.
To avoid this situation, you should have the coils inspected by one of our experienced air conditioner technicians at the start of the summer season.
When hired, a technician will check the coils and fins of the outside unit. In case the coil is dirty, the technician will use special equipment to clean the coil.
While cleaning the coil may seem like an easy task, you should not try to do the task yourself. You can accidentally damage critical components inside the unit when cleaning the coils. It’s better that you leave the task to an expert air conditioner technician.
3. For true summer AC maintenance, schedule a complete tune-up
Apart from replacing the filter and cleaning coils, a complete summer AC maintenance service from ABC can also lead to reduced energy bills. Our technician will check the entire system and perform repairs if required. This will ensure that small issues with the air conditioner that could turn out to be a bigger problem are resolved instantly.
What’s more, you won’t have to face the prospect of emergency breakdown right in the middle of a hot day.
