However, this doesn’t mean that if you skipped an appointment you can’t make one now!
It’s never too late to call our HVAC professionals for a maintenance appointment. In the meantime though, there are steps you can take yourself to ensure that your air conditioner remains in good shape for the rest of the season and is ready to perform well next year as well. Keep reading to learn more.
Check the Air Filter
Your HVAC system’s air filter is designed to protect its inside components from dirt, dust, allergens, and other debris. These items can all negatively impact your indoor air quality as well as the overall performance of your air conditioning system. So when you are regularly using your HVAC system, you should change this filter at least every 3 months. However, once a month is better if you have excessive contaminants such as pet dander or cigarette smoke.
Keep the Outdoor Condenser Clear
Take a look around your outdoor condenser unit. Ensure that it remains clear of debris such as mulch, dead leaves, lawn clippings, patio furniture, etc. Also, be sure to trim back nearby shrubs so they don’t invade the space around your unit as this can cause operational problems.
Flush the Condensate Drain Line
Flushing your condensate drain line helps prevent the harmful development of mold and bacteria that can potentially clog your drain and cause water to overflow, resulting in property damage. If you’re unsure of how to perform this task, you can call on the experts on our staff to assist.
