Being a homeowner means making sure your home is always at a comfortable temperature level. You want a nice and warm home in the winter, while also being cool in the summer. For many families, this means having an AC unit installed.
Air conditioning can be a lifesaver in the summertime. The last thing you want to do is suffer from excessive heat while you’re inside your house. The only drawback is that many homeowners often neglect air conditioning maintenance.
If you have an air conditioning unit for your home, it’s time to have a maintenance checklist in place. Let’s go over some of the things to look for before you call your HVAC professional in Sarasota.
Always Clear Debris
Debris can be a hindrance when it comes to your air conditioning unit working correctly. Always do your best to protect the unit itself. Clear anything that may be located around the unit.
Rake and clear anything that has the potential to clog your air conditioning or easily get inside to break it.
Change the Filters
Always keep on top of the filters that your unit uses. This should be cleaned twice a year to prevent any problems to the unit itself or your lungs. A dirty filter can lead to different health problems.
Speak with a professional on how to change the filters and what you should be looking out for when you do.
Stay Ahead of All Levels
Make sure that all of your coolant levels are up to date. Your unit must maintain a certain temperature and the coolant helps it to do this.
Be sure that you can read your unit, or if you can’t, hire a professional to make sure that everything is in the correct working order.
Look at and Tighten All Connections
Connections on your unit being loose can cause it to work in a faulty manner. The problems you could run into may be as simple as your unit needing to be tightened up. Make sure to look over all of the wirings and tighten anything that can be done without special machinery.
If there are any problems with tightening these connections, a professional can always be of assistance. Making that call is easier than having to replace your unit due to stripping any of the wires.
Tune-Ups Are a Must
One of the things that you have to keep in mind when it comes to your HVAC system is that having tune-ups is beneficial to keep up with your air conditioner.
Be sure to schedule these once a year to keep it from having major problems that cannot be fixed. An HVAC professional will be able to spot any possible problems that may be festering.
Keep Up With Air Conditioning Maintenance
Keeping up with your air conditioning maintenance can prevent any major problems from occurring. Follow this list to maintain the best possible HVAC health. Be sure to clean your filters and keep all of your HVAC appointments.
