Air Conditioning Maintenance

As we prepare for the long summer months it is a good time to consider having your air conditioning maintenance scheduled.

Your technician will have a system he uses to ensure that your air conditioner runs optimally.

Here are some of the things you can do to keep the air conditioner maintained:

  • Oil the blower motor and fan on both the condensing and the evaporation units annually.
  • Keep the condensing-unit pan free of bugs, leaves and dirt.
  • Check the tension on the condensing and evaporation unit blower fan belts each spring.
  • Inspect the blower ducts and joints for leaks and insulation slippage annually.
  • Clean or replace air filters frequently.
  • Keep the blower motor fan blade free of mold and mildew.
  • Set your a/c fan speed on high except when it’s humid.
  • Use a whole-house attic fan.
  • Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer.
  • Don't place electronic equipment near your air-conditioning thermostat.

With proper maintenance, you can extend the life of your air conditioning unit
