Air Conditioner Maintenance Tips

June 5th, 2012

Do you take good care of your air conditioner? Especially now that the summer is here, it’s more important than ever to perform regular air conditioner maintenance in Pennsylvania. You rely on your air conditioner to keep your home comfortable during the hot months of the year, so when it breaks down it can cause a lot of stress and discomfort in your home. Don’t get caught in the heat – air conditioner maintenance can make all the difference when it comes to prolonging the life of your AC and avoiding major repairs. Take a look at the following tips to make sure you keep up with your AC maintenance!

Change Your Filter Monthly

Your air conditioner uses a filter to keep harmful particles like dust and allergens from moving through your home. You should replace it once a month as part of your air conditioner maintenance. Plus, not changing your filter blocks proper airflow and could lead to uneven room temperatures and decreased efficiency. Simply changing your filter is an easy way to make sure your air conditioner is working at its best.

In wet environments, a filter can grow mold and cause bad odors in your home. This is not only unpleasant but it can also make you sick. Mark on your calendar (or add to your cell phone calendar) the next time you need to change your filter to make it easy for you to remember!

Don’t Wait to Get Repairs

If you are experiencing air conditioner problems in your Pennsylvania home, don’t wait to call for repairs. It’s much better to fix a small issue before it escalates into something larger or causes your air conditioner to completely break down. You certainly don’t want to get stuck with a hot, uncomfortable home, so call for service as soon as you notice something unusual. Dealing with problems early is very important for proper air conditioner system maintenance as it can help you avoid needing major repairs down the road. It can also prolong the life of your AC.
