Top AC Maintenance Tips

One of the best ways to lengthen the lifespan of your AC unit is to properly care for it. Air conditioners are made up of many components that help the AC unit manage your desired indoor temperature. If you don’t properly maintain these components, you’ll notice that your AC unit will begin to work less efficiently, and you’ll also probably notice a spike in your utility bills. By regularly scheduling professional HVAC maintenance, your AC components will be checked thoroughly and replaced if necessary. Some of the easiest ways to care for your AC unit include:

Replace Air Filters

Replacing air filters is one of the best ways to help your air conditioner run properly. When air filters become clogged, it forces your cooling system to work harder, resulting in higher utility bills. Many factors can affect how often your air filters need to be replaced, including if there are animals present, if you’re located in a particularly dusty area and if someone is present who suffers from allergies. During your maintenance visit, your Polar Bear Mechanical professional will check your air filters and replace any that are no longer working correctly.

Clean Air Conditioner Coils

An air conditioner’s coils collect dirt over time, and require periodic cleaning. When the coils become saturated with dirt, it becomes much more difficult for your cooling system to work properly and cool your indoor space to the desired temperature. If your AC coils are saturated with dirt and debris, then they won’t be able to absorb and transfer heat out of your space. Coils that aren’t properly maintained may lead to higher utility bills, decreased system lifespan, reduced comfort, increased operating temperatures and frequent repairs.

Clear Surrounding Area

It’s important for the area surrounding your air conditioning unit to be free of debris and miscellaneous items. Make sure any leaves are raked away from your system and that you don’t have any items leaning up against the unit, which could severely block airflow. During snowy winter months when you’re not using your air conditioner, it can be extremely beneficial to cover the top of your unit with a piece of wood or heavy-duty plastic. This can be helpful in ensuring leaves and other debris don’t fall inside your unit and limit the airflow.
