With spring already here and summer just a few months away, it’s time for homeowners to think about AC maintenance in Southampton. After all, if your air conditioning isn’t in good working order when temperatures start to rise, you and your family might find yourselves in an uncomfortably warm home—but with high energy bills, since an AC that’s not well-maintained won’t function as efficiently as it should.
According to Energy.gov, the most important aspect of maintaining your AC unit is to ensure the filter is clean. Depending on the type of unit you have, it can use disposable or reusable filters. For the best performance, you should clean or replace the filter every month during the warmer season.
Other parts of your air conditioner also collect dirt over the years of use. The evaporator coil and condenser coil both need to be cleaned properly every year, as should the coil fins and condensate drains.
But cleaning isn’t the only aspect of AC maintenance that’s important. Ensuring all parts function properly and that there are no leaks is equally essential. Especially window units can be difficult to completely seal off—unfortunately, air leaks allow warm air into the home and result in higher energy use for less effective cooling.
Instead of trying to maintain your AC yourself, it’s often advisable to get professional AC maintenance.
