MWHAT CAN I DO TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF MY AC UNIT?

 

How Often Should I Change My Air Filter?

We recommend replacing your filters every 1-3 months to keep your system running efficiently with annual AC Maintenance. Dirty filters can restrict the airflow of your AC system, which in turn can lead to a buildup of bacteria and pollutants in your home’s air.

Are My AC Unit’s Fins Aligned?

To ensure that your air conditioning system operates efficiently, it is important to keep the fins on the outside of your condenser clean and straight. Over time, these fins can become bent or crushed, which can restrict airflow and cause your system to work harder. If you notice bent fins, you can easily realign them with gentle pressure from a fin comb, which can be purchased at most hardware stores.

How Often Should My AC Unit Be Cleaned?

Your system should have annual maintenance performed to protect and safeguard it. Over time, your outdoor AC unit can collect dirt and debris which can obstruct the fins and reduce airflow. To prevent this from happening, you should regularly clean the unit.
