Easy Ways to Care for Your A/C System

Caring for your A/C system can seem like a mystery. It is impossible to depend only on your HVAC specialist for the care it needs because he or she cannot be at your home 24/7. Fortunately, there are many things that a homeowner can do to protect and preserve the central air system.

With proper care and A/C system maintenance, you can help:

  • Extend the lifespan of the A/C system
  • Protect its energy efficiency
  • Keep individual parts from degrading
  • Preserve the quality of air conditioning
  • Prevent repairs and damages

Because homeowners spend the most amount of time with their A/C systems, they are the first line of defense and the first caregivers.

Use Your A/C System with Thought and Care

The central air system in your home has been measured and fitted for your particular house. It is has limitations just like any other appliance. When you use it without rest, the A/C system wears down more quickly.

Look around your home and search for ways to reduce the heat load inside the house. This lessens the amount your central air system has to condition. Methods can include:

  • Energy efficient windows
  • Attic insulation
  • Caulking windows and doors

Even when the home is empty, be sure to never let the home grow too warm. Otherwise, the A/C system must work longer and harder to cool additional layers of heat.

Schedule A/C System Maintenance Regularly

Twice a year, A/C maintenance clears your central air of potential problems.  Your A/C specialist visits and provides the A/C system the type of technical care it needs. This includes:

  • Intensive cleaning inside and out
  • Adjustments to motors, blowers, control boards and switches
  • Measurements and tests to ensure proper performance
  • Safety checks for refrigerant leaks and microbiological growth

Your HVAC contractor also recommends any needed repairs, preventing damages and early wear.

Take Care of A/C System Repairs ASAP

Each part of the A/C system is there for a reason. When one component fails or struggles, the entire system is under stress. If you notice something out of the ordinary with your A/C system, contact your HVAC specialist. The longer you wait, the more trouble you have. This can lead to:

  • Greater repair costs
  • More time spent fixing your central air system
  • More parts in need of repair

Nip it in the bud and save the home and the A/C system a great deal of trouble by working with your A/C specialist.
