Air Conditioning & Heating - Basic Maintenance

Here are some easy-to-follow guidelines for maintaining your air conditioning and heating units at home:

  1. Keep the area around the units clean and clear of debris. This will help the units operate more efficiently and prevent any potential hazards.

  2. Change the air filter regularly. The air filter is responsible for trapping dust and other particles, so it's important to replace it every 1-3 months, depending on the type of filter and the level of use.

  3. Clean the coils. The coils on your air conditioning unit can become dirty over time, which can reduce its efficiency. Use a brush or vacuum to clean the coils at least once a year.

  4. Check and tighten any loose electrical connections. Loose connections can be a fire hazard, so it's important to make sure all connections are tight.

  5. Inspect and replace any damaged or worn parts. If you notice any damaged or worn parts, it's important to replace them as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the unit.

  6. Schedule annual maintenance. It's a good idea to have a professional inspect and maintain your air conditioning and heating units at least once a year. This will help ensure they are operating at their best and identify any potential problems before they become major issues.

By following these simple guidelines, you can help extend the life of your air conditioning and heating units and ensure they are operating at their best.
