The Benefits of AC Maintenance

  • Decreases Utility Costs. There is an upfront cost associated with an air conditioner tune-up. However, investing in your air conditioner today will help you save money in the future. After all, a well-maintained air conditioner will run more efficiently than an air conditioner that has never been professionally maintained. You will see the savings in your utility bills.
  • Extends the Lifespan of Your Equipment. All heavy-duty appliances require maintenance. When you have your air conditioner maintained by a professional on a yearly basis, it can actually extend the lifespan of your equipment. It will help you get the most of out your current air conditioner.
  • Prevents Breakdowns. Air conditioners are more susceptible to full system breakdowns when they have not been professionally maintained. Having your air conditioner tuned up this spring will protect your unit against breakdowns.

How to Perform AC Maintenance

AC maintenance is the key to keeping your unit performing well. As temperatures start to rise, you’ll want your air conditioner to be at its peak performance. If your unit could use a bit of TLC, follow these steps for how to properly take care of your air conditioner.

  • Turn Your Unit Off: You’re working with electricity and moving parts, so totally turn off your unit’s power to keep yourself safe.
  • Get Rid of Debris: Use a screwdriver or wrench to remove the cage from the top of your outside condenser unit, and get rid of any leaves and debris from the inside using your hand or a wet/dry vacuum.
  • Clean and Straighten the Fins: Take your garden hose and spray the fins from the inside out to get rid of any dirt that could be built up on them. Inspect the fins, and use a butter knife to straighten any bent ones.
  • Clear Out the Surrounding Area: Rake leaves and other debris away from your unit, and trim away any plant life that is growing within two feet of your condenser. When the winter months roll around, make sure to place a piece of plywood on top of the unit so debris doesn’t fall inside.
  • Level Your Unit: After a few years, the pad your condenser sits on can tilt, causing the unit to potentially fail earlier than it should. Check the leveling, and use rust-resistant shims to get it even again.
