Planning routine AC maintenance is helpful.
Maintenance keeps your air conditioning system in Miami operating at its best performance while keeping energy consumption down. It also could even help extend its life expectancy.
While there are several tasks you can complete on your own, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC checks and service.
Here are several steps you can take by yourself as you get ready for cooling season.
Get Your AC Checkup Booked
Spring is a period of revival, and to many that includes a hefty amount of home, garage and yard freshening. With the warmer temps right around the corner, it’s also a fantastic idea to include AC tune-ups on that checklist.
Spring is the perfect season to get your cooling equipment cleaned and inspected. Waiting to switch it on until the first warm day of the season can be dicey. If you need a fix or a new unit, you might be waiting awhile for a tech. And that could get extremely unbearable.
And for people with allergies, being one step ahead with a freshened cooling system will help provide the finest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.
Additionally, AC upkeep could be required for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any other extended warranty.
Can I Finish Service Myself?
There are methods that you can do to help keep your air conditioning equipment in the ultimate state:
- Put in a new air filter. Filthy filters block airflow and could decrease your system’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the model you have, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is especially crucial if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have pets in your house.
- Lawn upkeep around the exterior condenser. Ensure the area is free of grass, weeds or bushes by your cooling unit. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of open room. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have fallen into your system, because this may impede airflow.
