Regular Maintenance

  1. Schedule annual tune-ups: Regular maintenance by a professional technician can extend the lifespan of your air conditioner and prevent costly breakdowns.
  2. Clean or replace air filters: Clogged filters restrict airflow and reduce efficiency. Check and replace them every 1-3 months, depending on the type and usage.
  3. Clear debris around the outdoor unit: Trim back any vegetation and remove leaves or dirt that may obstruct airflow.

Efficient Operation

  • Use a programmable thermostat to adjust temperatures when you’re away or sleeping, saving energy and money.
  • Seal air leaks around windows, doors, and ductwork to prevent cool air from escaping.
  • Close blinds or curtains during the day to block direct sunlight and reduce heat gain.

Signs of Trouble

Pay attention to these warning signs that may indicate the need for professional air conditioning repair:

  • Unusual noises or smells coming from the unit
  • Warm air blowing from the vents
  • Frequent cycling on and off
  • Significant increase in energy bills
