Tips for DIY AC Maintenance
With regular care, you’ll experience less downtime. Here are some tips to help you maintain your air conditioner.
Clean or Replace Your Filter
Over time, the air filter can become clogged with dust, debris and other particles that you will want to clean out. A buildup of these particles can cause your AC to work much harder, raise your energy bill, and increase the risk of your unit breaking down from problems.
How often you need to change your filter may depend on things such as how often you clean and whether or not you have pets. A good rule of thumb is to check the filter monthly for debris. If you can see hair and dust on the surface, then replace the filter or wash it if it’s a reusable kind.
Ensure All Vents Are Open and Unblocked
In order for your air conditioner to work efficiently, the air in your house must be able to circulate completely throughout your home. Make sure your registers are not blocked by furniture, boxes, or other household items and ensure dust is not trapped in the cover.
Keep the Area Around the Unit Clear
It’s best to keep your AC unit as free of obstruction as possible to help prevent issues. Cut away and clear any vegetation, tall grass, shrubs, and tree limbs around the unit and check it for debris regularly. In general, safe clearance of your air conditioning unit will be around 24 inches in all directions.
Seal Your Home’s Doors and Windows
Any leak of air within the home can cause your AC to have to work harder. Putting weather strips on doors leading outside can help you to prevent cold air from leaking out. You may also want to consider upgrading to newer and more energy-efficient windows to keep from losing any cool air.
