4 Crucial Home A/C Maintenance Tips
1. A Clean Filter
Cleaning and/or replacing your A/C filter regularly will ensure proper airflow. Once your filter becomes dirty or clogged, it will cause your system’s efficiency to drop. This could lead to damages to your system, and dirty air that you and your family will breathe. YUCK! Speak to a professional about which filters you should be using with your particular system, and how often your system requires that they be cleaned/replaced.
2. Clean Coils
Your A/C system has 2 coils: Evaporator and Condenser. Just as with your Air conditioning filter, these coils collect dirt and debris as well that will lead to larger, more expensive problems down the road if not tended to regularly. The good news is that unlike your A/C filter, your coils typically should only require cleaning 1-2 times a year. Keep an eye on the dirt and gunk that may be collecting around these sites. Have your A/C professional point them out to you during your next routine system checkup so that you can make sure they are staying clean and well-managed.
3. An Unclogged Drain
Your system’s drainage system maintenance is extremely important- especially if you want to avoid any reduction in humidity that could translate into discoloration of your carpets and walls. OH NO! To keep your drain channels un-clogged simply run a long, stiff wire through the channel. This will keep your homes A/C moisture out of your hair- and your brand new white carpet.
