Needing air conditioning repair can be a source of major frustration as well as expense. Let’s face it – if the temperature is soaring outside, the last thing you want to have to deal with is a failing AC unit. You will not only be miserable, you could also be facing a major expenditure. But there are a few things you can do to help you avoid a system breakdown and save some money.
Keeping your AC maintained on a regular basis can save you from major air conditioning repair costs. Just like you would never drive 50,000 miles without having the oil changed in your car, you should never go 5-10 years without having your cooling system checked. Schedule a maintenance appointment before summer and have a professional perform a thorough inspection of your unit. This will identify any minor issues before they can possibly turn into major problems.
You might not have the expertise to check your system from top to bottom on your own, but you can do something extremely important. Changing your air filters regularly can help make sure air circulates properly through your system. If you neglect this simple step, your system will have to work too hard to keep you cool and comfortable. This will speed wear and tear and ultimately take years off of your AC’s lifespan.
Clear the Clutter
It is also very important to keep the area around your outside unit clear of debris as much as you can. For example, keep shrubbery and grass at least two feet away from all sides of the unit. Like changing your filter, keeping your AC clear of debris will promote proper air circulation and save wear and tear.
