Importance of A/C Maintenance

Published by Steven Weiland

A well-maintained air conditioner offers a variety of benefits, both big and small, in addition to providing comfort in your home:

  • Lessens heat fatigue
  • Lowers humidity
  • Promotes better sleep
  • Extends longevity of your A/C unit
  • Lowers energy bills
  • Decreases energy usage (up to 20-50 percent!)
  • Reduces noise from an inefficient system
  • Removes airborne allergens
  • Reduces dust and mold growth
  • Reduces risk of carbon monoxide
  • Minimizes fire hazard

So, how can you keep your A/C system maintained?

  1. Schedule an inspection before each cooling season for professional maintenance.
  2. Contact a professional HVAC contractor before attempting repairs on your own.
  3. Check and clean or replace air filters regularly.
  4. Keep room vents unobstructed.
  5. Remove any dirt, dust and other debris from your outdoor unit.
  6. Cover outdoor units when they aren’t being used.
  7. When your A/C is running, close doors and windows.
  8. Install storm doors and windows.
  9. Insulate common air leak areas (attic, chimney, basement, windows, etc.).
