AC Components to Maintain

Rooftop HVAC System in Hawthorne NJYou might be wondering what sort of things go into keeping your air conditioner maintained. After all, an air conditioner isn’t something we actively think about, especially not if it’s running quietly in the background and doing its job. Just because we don’t always keep track of it, however, doesn’t mean that we should neglect it. Here are a few things that you can keep an eye on to ensure that your home or office remains cool and at a perfect temperature.

Your air conditioner has a filter to help keep out the bad allergens, dust, and other debris from filtering back through the air. Keeping an eye on the filter and replacing it frequently (monthly, if you are a pet owner) will help with the upkeep of your AC. Not only will it help keep junk from getting into the air you’re breathing, replacing an old, clogged filter with a new one can increase the energy efficiency from %5-%15.

You also want to keep an eye on your air conditioner’s coils. These unique parts in your air conditioner are what you can thank for the cool air that blows out. However, even with a clean filter, they can get coated in dust and dirt. Covered in dirt, your air conditioner will have to work harder to keep the air cooler, and its ability to sense temperature will go down, reducing the amount of warm air it can convert to refreshingly cool air.

There are plenty of things that you can do to ensure that your air conditioner is up, running, and safe; however, it’s always a good thing to get a professional to come help when and if you are unsure of what is wrong with your AC.
