Preventive Maintenance for Your Air Conditioning System

AC Repair And Maintenance

The best way to handle the preventive maintenance tasks for your air conditioner system is to outsource the job to professional HVAC maintenance technicians, but if you are looking for a way to reduce your costs, the good news is that you can do a lot to prevent the break-down of your AC unit. Here are some tips for you:

  • Replace the furnace filter regularly – clogged filters reduce the efficiency of the system and can also cause faults that are expensive to fix. Filter replacement is easy to do – just turn off the thermostat, disconnect the unit from the power source, open the filter door, remove the old filter and insert the new one;
  • Clean the electronic filters and cartridges that neutralize smaller airborne particles – disconnect the unit, remove the filter and the cartridges, wash them according to the manufacturer’s instructions, then put them back into their place;
  • Clean and flush the drain lines – you can use a wet-dry vacuum cleaner for the purpose;
  • Clean the outdoor unit regularly as well – remove the cover and use a vacuum cleaner or a brush to remove dust and small debris. To avoid clogging while the unit is not in use, keep the equipment covered while not in use.
