Planning regular AC maintenance is worthwhile.
Maintenance keeps your air conditioner equipment in Louisville running at its best performance while keeping energy usage low. It also can even help extend its life expectancy.
While there are several tasks you can complete on your own, you should work with Experts, like the ones at Becht/Givens Service Experts, for AC inspections and upkeep.
Here are a couple steps you can complete by yourself as you get ready for warm weather.
Get Your AC Service Set
Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that entails a large portion of home, garage and yard cleaning. With the toastier weather near, it’s also a good idea to add AC tune-ups on that checklist.
Spring is the best time to get your cooling system freshened and examined. Delaying to switch it on until the first hot day of the year can be dicey. If you need a fix or a new unit, you might be waiting a long time for a tech. And that could get awfully uncomfortable.
And for people with allergies, being well prepared with a freshened AC system will help provide the greatest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.
Plus, air conditioner maintenance might be mandatory for your unit’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.
Can I Do Maintenance Myself?
There are methods that you can do to help keep your air conditioner equipment in the best state:
- Replace your air filter. Filthy filters limit airflow and may reduce your equipment’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the kind you install, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is very important if you deal with allergies or have a cat in your home.
- Lawn upkeep near the outdoor condenser. Check there’s no grass, weeds or bushes by your air conditioning unit. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of free room. You should also remove any leaves or twigs that have collected inside your equipment, as this can impede airflow.
