Air conditioning is a necessity for both homeowners and renters across Southern California because temperatures here are well-known to reach in the triple digits, even as late as October so air conditioning plays a vital role in keeping our homes and offices cool and comfortable.
Sadly, even though we need air conditioning, most people think that if their air conditioners are still running, they shouldn’t have to schedule maintenance and this can be further from the truth.
The main reason why you should schedule regular maintenance for your air conditioner is to make sure that it’s always in proper running condition because there’s nothing worse than turning on your air conditioner on a hot day only to find out that it’s not functioning properly, or is only blowing warm air.
What Are Some Of The Things You Can Do To Keep Your Air Conditioning Running Smoothly?
Besides scheduling regular air conditioning maintenance, some of the other things that you can do to keep your air conditioner running smoothly include the following:
Change Your HVAC Air Filter Regularly – Your HVAC air filter is very similar to both the liver and kidneys in a human body because it’s responsible for filtering out the dust, dirt, hair, and other debris that might make its way inside the blower and circulate into the air inside your home.
The good news about an HVAC air filter is that they are very inexpensive and for only about $8, you can purchase a pack of 8 air filters and have the ability to change your air filter without any difficulty every month.
Keep Your Outdoor Unit Free Of Debris – Another thing that you can do to ensure that your air conditioner is going to run smoothly during the summer months is to keep your outdoor unit free of any dirt, debris, or trash that may block your outdoor unit and inhibit airflow.
Check Your Vents – If it’s been a while since you checked the vents inside your home, you should take the time to check each vent to make sure that it’s opened instead of closed. This may seem like a simple tip but vents can easily become closed during a normal year so it’s important to verify at least every few months that the vents in your home are indeed open and not closed.
