DIY Air Conditioner Maintenance
Keep Space Clear
Maintain a clear and open space around the outdoor unit to ensure proper airflow. Remove any encroaching weeds, or plant life, and debris from the area around your unit and especially near the outdoor intake and exhaust vents. A general rule of thumb for things growing around this area is to keep a clear three-foot radius.
Clean Your A/C
Straighten A/C fins and wash them with a hose. A/C fins are the metallic webs that are on the outside unit. They are designed to keep the dirt and debris outside the unit and while enabling proper airflow through it. Because these fins easily become dirty or even get damaged, they sometimes need to be cleaned or straightened. For the latter, you can purchase a tool called a fin comb. Because fins are made out of thin slices of metal pieces, they can get bent very easily, and this is bad for airflow from the condenser unit. If this area is too bent up, give us a call!
Change Your Air Filters
Change your system’s air filters often. Changing your AC filter on a regular basis is one of the most basic and yet vital things you need to do for your AC, and yet it is among the most neglected and overlooked. Forgetting to change your AC filter can be an expensive error. Throughout the summertime, your AC’s air filter should be checked about once a month. During an average summer, it’ll need to be replaced at least a couple of times.
Utilize A/C Covers
When the winter months arrive, and you’re long done using your AC, use a cover to protect your equipment and coils from falling ice and other winter weather wear and tear while the system isn’t being used. This cover doesn’t need to be fancy or expensive, and it shouldn’t be air tight so do not use tarp. Ideally, a trash can lid or piece of plywood cut to size would work well. You can secure either of these down with a bungee cord
