Cooler weather will soon be arriving in Amarillo, but for now, air conditioning is still essential for staying comfortable. Just because the cooling season is nearly at an end is no reason to skip on A/C maintenance. It’s important to continue your regular maintenance tasks until it’s time to shut down your system and put it to bed for the winter. Keeping your air conditioner in good shape will help ensure it operates properly next year.
The ideal time to schedule preventive maintenance is in the spring, but it’s never too late to benefit from a professional tune-up. Preventive A/C maintenance by a qualified HVAC professional will increase system efficiency, lower your utility costs, extend the life of your air conditioner and help prevent common A/C problems.
Ongoing DIY Maintenance
There are two important things you should do monthly throughout the summer to keep your air conditioner in top working order.
- Check your air filter and replace it as needed. A clean air filter helps ensure proper air flow, prevents dust buildup inside your system and improves your indoor air quality.
- Keep dirt and leaves out of the unit. Debris becomes trapped in the metal fins over time and prevents the optimum exchange of heat energy, as well as inhibits airflow, both of which make your air conditioner work harder to keep you comfortable.
