HAMCO Heating & Cooling Ltd. has been in business since 1946 and over the years we’ve installed, repaired and serviced a lot of heating and cooling systems. In the last seven decades, we’ve seen the difference between a properly maintained air conditioner and one that’s been neglected and have put together some expert tips to help extend the life of your cooling system.
1. Replace Filters Regularly
One of the best ways to keep your air conditioning system running efficiently and safely is to replace air filters regularly. A clogged filter can cause a number of problems, from poor indoor air quality to shutting down the whole system. Most filters need to be changed every 30 to 60 days but it really depends on the type of filter and home environment. Learn more about proper filter maintenance.
2. Clear Debris from Condenser
To work properly, the outdoor condenser needs clearance around the whole unit. During the winter—branches, leaves and other debris can collect and impede operation. To ensure that your air conditioner operates at peak efficiency and doesn’t break down prematurely—regularly clear around the condenser.
3. Schedule Professional Maintenance
It’s important to have a licensed professional inspect your AC every year to extend the life of your cooling system. During a yearly inspection, a cooling specialist will inspect, clean and make small adjustments to increase efficiency and comfort. In addition, small problems can be addressed before it turns into a complete breakdown that requires expensive repairs.
