Stay cool during summer and cut down on your energy costs with our expert air conditioner maintenance tips:
Clean Or Change The Air Filters
Over time the air filters of your air conditioner will become clogged with dirt and little particles. This is will make it harder for your air conditioner to deliver the desired temperature. Which also means it has to work overtime and increase your energy bill.
A clean air filter can lower your energy consumption by up to 15%!
Wash the air-filters of your air conditioner unit with warm water and a little dish detergent.
Depending on the type of occupation of your home you should clean your air conditioner filter at least every 90 days, if you have a pet at least every 60 days. If you or one of your family members is prone to allergies every 20-30 days.
Check And Clear The Drainage Line
Your air conditioner removes moisture and condensation water through a drainage line. When this line gets blocked with dirt or even mildew your ac won´t be able to remove humidity from your home.
To prevent this from happening you can use bleach to clean the line from mildew. If there is an obstruction you can use a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner.
Remove Obstructions Around The Exterior Of Your Air Conditioner Unit
Check the surrounding of your ac condenser unit at least twice a month. Make sure it is free of vegetation and debris. Ideally, vegetation shouldn´t grow within 2 feet of the unit.
Schedule Preventive Air Conditioner Maintenance
Most air conditioner failures are due to a lack of maintenance. Schedule maintenance with an HVAC professional like AC Plus Las Vegas at least once a year.
This will not only ensure the optimal performance of your air conditioner and lower your energy bills but it also increases the overall lifespan of your air conditioning system.
