Fact- preventative maintenance can save money and keep your system running efficiently. Regular maintenance also helps you avoid costly breakdowns. Who wants to be without AC during Monsoon season in Phoenix?
When your unit is not performing at its peak, it can result in a home that has warm spots-causing your air conditioning unit to run for longer periods of time, in an attempt to cool your home. This could cost more in utility bills.
Here are a few preventative maintenance tips for home owners:
- Check for efficient air flow around the unit– Your air conditioner should have plenty of “breathing” room. Don’t cover it or enclose the unit in any way. Keep leaves, plants and other vegetation at least 18″ away.
- Clean or replace filters every 4 to 6 weeks – This is an easy step that many homeowners overlook. Failing to change your filters can reduce the efficiency of your AC unit and causes the a/c to work harder, reducing the life span of the system.
- Have your system inspected biannually. The biannual inspection should consist of cleaning, checking, monitoring and measuring various components such as your thermostat, indoor and outdoor coils and electrical connections. Your comfort specialists at Hobaica Services will be happy to inspect your system and provide answers to all of your air conditioning needs.
