The summer season may be almost over, but the hot and humid temperatures are probably keeping that AC running. Performing regular AC maintenance can keep those temperatures (and costs) down in your home. Solution Based Plumbing, Heating, and A/C offers AC solutions and AC repair King of Prussia can rely on.
3 Easy Things You Can Do to Maintain Your AC System
- Clean/Change the Filter Regularly: Like a stuffy nose, a clogged air filter cannot allow proper airflow. In order to keep a dirty or clogged air filter from restricting your AC’s ability to cool your home, it is imperative that you regularly change your filter according to manufacturer instructions. If you have a washable filter, it’s important to wash it regularly – we recommend at least every couple of months for maximum cleanliness.
- Clean the Area Around Your Interior Unit: If you think about where the interior unit of an HVAC system is typically located, you probably picture a dusty basement. Sometimes we use our basement as a catchall for boxes in storage. Try to keep the sides and top of your HVAC unit clear of any clutter.
- Remove Debris: It is also important to check your exterior compressor unit. Tall grass and weeds are likely to grow up near the unit and may clog the vents. It can be difficult to keep this area clean with only a lawnmower, so you’ll want to be sure to use an edger or similar tool in this space. Once the grass is taken care of, rake away clumps of grass or old leaves that may be smothering the air flow.
Beyond these basic maintenance tips, it’s important to have your HVAC system checked at least annually by a professional HVAC company like the service-oriented team at Solution Based Plumbing, Heating, and A/C. We perform more detailed maintenance tasks and catch problems before they start.
