The hot weather and increased humidity means your air conditioner is putting in much more work. The best way to keep cool this summer is to stay on-top of your unit’s upkeep so you can feel confident everything is working correctly. There are a few tips for you to help make sure your air conditioner is working properly during the warmer months.
Keep the Area Around Unit Clear of Brush and Debris
Summer is the most common time to mow your lawn, making it easy for grass clippings and other debris to gather outside of your air conditioner. This can cause a decrease in system capacity and reduced airflow, resulting in your air conditioner working harder and ultimately wearing down earlier. Be sure to frequently clean up any debris around your unit so your air conditioner can last as long as possible.
Change or Clean the Air Filter
Habitually replacing or cleaning the air filters in your air conditioner will help its efficiency. For any questions about which filter to buy or how often you should change it, review the filter itself or feel free to contact the team at Osceola Air, LLC so we can provide a suggestion based on your specific system. For certain filter sizes, we can check and replace them at your regular maintenance visit. It’s important to know that if your air conditioner is in consistent use, it’s subject to dusty circumstances, or you have pets, that your filter could need to be cleaned or changed more frequently.
Your air conditioner’s coils gather dirt over time which ultimately decreases airflow and insulates the coil making it harder to absorb heat. The outdoor coils can become dirty if the area is dusty or if there is nearby shrubbery. Coils can also bend, obstructing airflow through the coil. Our experts can check the coils at your annual maintenance visit to clean or straighten coils as required.
