Air Conditioning Installation And Maintenance Guide
Getting an entirely new air conditioning system installed in your home is a big investment. Fortunately it’s one that pays off. In order to get the most benefit from your new AC system, you need to ensure you are taking care of some basic important maintenance steps.
Regular and proper maintenance on a new AC system will help it operate at peak efficiency as well as help it to last as long as possible.
- Determine the right air filter changing schedule. You need to change your air filter on a regular basis to ensure your cooling system works and works well. How often should you change it? That depends on a lot of factors including how many people live in the house, are there pets, does anyone suffer from allergies. The best thing to do is to check your filter each month. If there are any signs its dirty or clogged, get it replaced with a clean filter right away.
- Brush away debris. Well before you first need to use your air conditioner for the spring and summer season, inspect the outside unit. If there are leaves or other debris on or in the unit, brush it all completely away.
- Clean it. It’s a good idea to hose off any dirt at this time, too. With the hose inside the unit facing out, hose off any dirt and particles that have accumulated on your unit.
