Scheduling yearly AC maintenance is worthwhile.
Service keeps your air conditioner equipment in San Antonio running at its top performance while keeping energy usage down. It also can even help prolong its life span.
While there are several tasks you can complete alone, you should call the Experts, like the ones at San Antonio Air Service Experts, for AC checks and service.
Here are a couple steps you can take on your own as you get ready for cooling season.
Get Your AC Checkup Scheduled
Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a large dose of house, garage and yard sprucing. With the warmer weather right around the corner, it’s also a good idea to include AC upkeep on that list.
Spring is a great time of year to get your AC equipment cleaned and inspected. Waiting to turn it on until the first warm day of the year can be a gamble. If you have to schedule service or installation, you might be waiting a long time for an appointment. And that may become extremely uncomfortable.
And for people with allergies, being well prepared with a fresh cooling system will help provide the greatest indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.
Additionally, AC maintenance could be mandatory for your system’s manufacturer warranty or any additional extended warranty.
Can I Do Service Alone?
There are steps that you can do to help keep your air conditioner unit in the prime order:
- Replace your air filter. Clogged filters restrict airflow and may reduce your equipment’s efficiency. While how often you should replace it depends on the model you use, the U.S. Department of Energy suggests each month or two. This is especially necessary if you have been diagnosed with allergies or have a cat in your home.
- Lawn upkeep by the outside condenser. Ensure there’s no grass, weeds or bushes near your cooling system. We suggest keeping 2–3 feet of clear space. You should also clear any leaves or twigs that have dropped into your equipment, because this might limit airflow.
