The summer season has arrived in the U.S. This the time that you should focus on your home air conditioner maintenance, if you haven’t already done so. The heat and dust, along with long hours of operation, can take a toll on your cooling device. However, you can lessen the risk of a mechanical breakdown through an air conditioner tune-up. In this blog post, we’ll share some of our AC maintenance tips.
Regular maintenance of the air conditioner will ensure that the system performs efficiently. This will result in reduced energy bills, and your system will last longer as well. Knowing which air conditioner maintenance task to perform can help in ensuring optimum operation of the cooling device.
1. Have King inspect and replace the filter
The filter is one of the most important components of the air conditioner. A dirty filter can result in accelerated wear-and-tear on the cooling device. At the start of the summer, you should inspect the filter.
In case the filter is dirty, you should clean or replace it. A clean filter will ensure efficient flow of air. This will result in increased air conditioner efficiency. An efficient air conditioner will not draw excess power to operate resulting in reduced energy bills.
2. Have King examine the coils
Another important component of the air conditioner are the coils. Air conditioner coils capture heat from inside the house and release them outside the house. Dirty coils will not be able to efficiently dissipate heat. As a result, the system will heat up quickly.
Ultimately, the system will break down due to overheating. You should have a professional air conditioner technician inspect the coils and clean or replace them if required. Of all our AC maintenance tips, this could make the most difference in preventing a system breakdown.
3. Have King check the AC drain line
Over time, your air conditioner drain line can develop a leak. This will result in water accumulating around the unit. If the water gets inside the system, it can result in system failure. In order to avoid this fate, it’s important that you check the drain line regularly. In case of a leak or clogged drain line, you should have a technician perform the necessary repairs.
4. Do all of the above by scheduling AC maintenance from King
The start of the summer season is a great time to schedule an AC tune-up. Our professional technician will perform a thorough inspection of the unit. We’ll lubricate parts, check electrical components, test the refrigerant levels, inspect the wiring, and more. This can result in the energy-efficient operation of the system, thereby saving you money due to reduced bills and less frequent breakdowns over time.
