This entry was posted in Blog on by .

One of the largest and most important investments in your home is your air conditioner. Just consider what life would be like without one here in the Valley of the Sun. Thus, it only makes sense to ensure you’re doing all you can to keep your air conditioner working optimally as long as possible.

The replacement of an air conditioner is a significant expense. So, knowing how to maintain your system is essential for any homeowner. Here are three ways you can do that:

Cleaning

Let’s face it. There’s a lot of dust in the desert. And, a buildup of dust, dirt and debris can be the downfall of an air conditioner. Regular cleaning and lubrication of moving parts is vital for maintaining an air conditioner. This means staying on top of regular tune-ups.

Air Filter Replacement

Air filters should be replaced or cleaned on a regular basis to maintain your indoor air quality and to keep your system working efficiently. This task is something that only takes a few minutes. So, it’s wise to add it to your monthly calendar.

Refrigerant Levels

As part of your annual tune-up, your refrigerant levels are checked, and leaks can be repaired. Keep in mind that an air conditioner with too much or too little refrigerant can decrease efficiency. This is why you want to choose a qualified HVAC specialist for maintenance and repairs.
