Your home’s air conditioning system is the only thing that stands between you and a long, sweaty, summer night. Therefore, you should be keen to ensure that it keeps running smoothly for many years to come. To keep your AC system in excellent condition, you will need to perform the following maintenance tasks.
Change Your Filters
To keep your cooling system running smoothly, you must change out your filters on a regular basis. Failing to do so will force your system to work harder than necessary to push cool air throughout your home. This additional stress can damage your system and potentially increase your energy bills.
Clean Your Outdoor Compressor
Dust and debris can cause significant damage to your outdoor AC compressor. If you would like to avoid having to make repairs, you should make an effort to clean the unit and the surrounding area fairly regularly. Your system will reward your work with increased efficiency and a longer life span.
Unclog Your Condensate Drain Line
When the Accurate Comfort team is called out to repair a cooling system, a clogged condensate drain line is often the culprit. Buildups in the line can cause AC systems to shut down entirely. If you would prefer to avoid dealing with a broken air conditioning system, you should remember to unclog your drain line periodically.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
If your thermostat is inaccurate or unreliable, it is likely causing your cooling system to work unnecessarily hard. A newer, more accurate thermostat will eliminate this issue by instructing it to work only when necessary. If you would like to really cut back on your system’s workload as well as your energy bills, you can even consider installing a programmable thermostat.
