Discover how to care for your AC unit and maximize its lifespan, ensuring optimal performance, energy efficiency, and a comfortable indoor environment.

1. Regular Maintenance

Schedule routine air conditioning maintenance. It’s recommended to have a professional HVAC technician inspect and service your unit at least once a year. They can check for potential issues and perform necessary cleaning, repairs, and other tune-up services.

2. Clean or Replace Air Filters

Dirty air filters restrict airflow and make your AC unit work harder. Clean or replace the filters every one to three months or as the manufacturer recommends. This helps improve efficiency and reduces strain on the system. To do this, you might need the help of an air conditioning installation technician.

3. Protect from Direct Sunlight

Keep your AC unit shaded from direct sunlight, especially peak daylight hours. This reduces the workload on the unit and improves efficiency.

4. Avoid Overworking the System

Minimize using heat-generating appliances such as ovens, dryers, and stoves during the hottest parts of the day. This helps prevent your AC unit from overworking to cool down the space.

Of course, cooling systems that are way past their intended service lifespan should be replaced, but not before exhausting all your other options.
